She loves taking naps and looking out the window at everything going on outside! Barkingly, curling up close to her foster dad is a favorite activity.

Bailey has been great with other dogs' she's met. She's even been good with a cat!

Bailey has lots of lovin's to share and will make a pawsomely incredibly addition to a family!

Bennie's age is not pawsitive but it's pawssibly between 8- and 10-years-old! He is a sweet and lovable fella! Sometimes he looks like a puppy- like in the photo above! BARKS!

Bennie was found as a stray so A3P doesn't know what's he's been through. Barkingly, he was brought into the rescue super-skinny, filthy, suffering hair loss, and bad skin infection. WOOF! Sadly, he is missing a few teeth too. Barks, the rescue isn't sure he's ever lived inside.

WOOF! BARKS, despite those challenges, Bennie is playful, loves giving kisses and just wants to be near his humans! He loves to stand by the TV and watch! He is a pawsitively adorable but!

Barks, right now, Bennie is constantly looking for food since he went without for quite a while! He is learning that good is available now and is gaining weight! WOOF!

Bennie is learning some basic commands and a potty schedule! WOOF!

Bennie is pawsitively great with other dogs!

Bennie is a great fella and is looking for a family who will be willing to invest in him for the rest of his life!

Daylight Savings Time Ends- Sunday, November 3!


Daylight Saving Time
(C) Allen Pearson Photography

Barks! Meows! Oh, it's Dad's least favorite time of the year and Mom's favorite time of the year!

WOOF!! Dad doesn't like when we turn the clocks back one hour because he knows it means the colder weather is coming. It's time to end his yard and garden work, to put the lawnmower away, and do the winter yard clean-up AND the shorter days seem to be getting shorter faster- though, technically, they started getting shorter last June.

Mom loves the last day of "Daylight Saving Time" because she LOVES the extra hour of sleep! Meows! That is her mostest favorite part of the year! Purrs!

Before you go to bed tonight, be sure to turn your clocks back one hour! Dad begins turning clocks back on Saturday while saving the ones most used until the late day. This way, they are confused about time and they will wake up on time for church on Sunday.

Remember:
Fall Back! 
Turn Those Clocks and Watches 
Back One Hour Before Bed Tonight! 



Woof! Dad can't wait for Spring so we can spring-forward again!

Meows! He has a long wait.... purr.... hee hee

WOOF! WOOF! My pawsome friend "Miss Sherry" from the Advocates for Abused and Abandoned Pets (A3P)  stopped by this week surrounded by several pawsome pets who are looking for their "Forever Homes" and humans to love! In this post, I will share about the dogs she brought by and Samson will share about the cats!

Meet my new friend Dakoda! He is 1-year-old extremely handsome and gentle purebred Siberian Husky!

Paws, Dakoda is shy and hesitant, at first, but will blossom beautifully with a companion who will go slow with him. 

He is good with dogs, cats, and mini-humans!

Meet my new friend Thea!

Thea is Dakoda's sister! She is incredibly stunningly pawsomely, you name it, BEAUTIFUL! WOOF! WOOF! Barks! 

Thea is outgoing and personable! She just loves meeting new humans! Paws, she is a playful and happy girl! 

Barks, she is good with other dogs, mini-humans, and not sure about cats!

WOOF! WOOF! Dakoda and Thea would LOVE to be adopted together! Barkingly, they can be adopted separately too. 

An adopter who is familiar with Husky's and has a fenced backyard, preferably 6-feet, would be the ideal human!
