Now more than ever, you are needed to donate your old blankets, towels, and sheets to your local animal shelter. With financial cut-backs, repairs on shelters are often put off, so if it's drafty, the animals suffer. I know my shelter uses rags to stuff under doors. No kidding! Empty out those closets... this is your chance to get rid of stuff and do something useful!

Transport Sunday and Shelter Day

Happily, my entire day yesterday Sunday was spent doing stuff for dogs.

The morning began taking my little guys on their Daily Constitutional 1.3 mile walk (later in the day they get another Constitutional 3/4 mile walk, plus three quickies).

Here they are at "Grandma's House" last weekend.

Then I left to provide one leg of a transport of three little ones needing to be driven to their new homes. They were impossibly cute. Bentley is on the left (he was thrown from a moving car and that owner was turned in by her son and grandson!), Diamond, and Little Margot.

Bentley leaving his old life behind!

Diamond in between ear scratching.

This little one (Miss Margot) nibbled on my ear the entire time! If she was quiet and I got worried she was into something, so looked her way, she took that to mean it was time to start nibbling again.

Both Bentley and Diamond are with their new people and Little Margot is being fostered for a week first.

Then it was off to Yonkers Animal Shelter where I volunteer. It was a beautiful day, all the dogs got out, and one got adopted (Bonnie, who went with such nice people).  We've had some good adoptions lately. Spot went home a few weeks ago. He's doing well, I hear. Love that boy.

Sadly, a shady threesome cast another dog out their car window in front of our shelter. If a dog's face could personify worry, this little one's could. She has big soulful eyes that are kind of close set and between the totally wrinkled-up brow at being thrown from the car, we all rushed over to love her. She was afraid but we did out best to make her at home.

 She'll have a name and a picture soon.
