No Dog Days of Summer here .....

I love having a cozy fire on when its cold and damp!  Granted, I don't normally need to do so this time of year ... but last night it was lovely all the same.  
Rascal is still a rookie here ... so by the time he caught on, Andy had already commandeered the comfy dog bed closest to the stove! 
Seniors are quick studies, so it is a sure thing that the next time Rascal sees me rummaging around the wood cupboard he will snuggle down to wait with his pal!
Personally, I think we could all take a few lessons from mature pets.    A few months ago, Rascal was happily living a completely different life with an elderly lady.   Life here is very likely the polar opposite to that!  
To see him bouncing along beside me every morning in the woods, a casual observer could not imagine he has barely been here a month!   It took exactly one day for Rascal to get the lay of the land here ... to understand the First Rule of Cat ... to realize that the grass really isn't any greener in someone else's supper dish ... and all the other bits and pieces in between!
So it should be no surprise that Annie has been settling in so well to her new and improved life under the ASDR umbrella.   In the short space of time since she was attacked, Annie has rebounded like a champ.    Her wounds are healing well ... and more importantly,  she is happy and playful and still loves to go out for walks.
As a matter of fact, Annie has done so well with her behaviour assessment that she is now available for adoption!   Mind you, the Petfinder bio that Annie's foster Mom wrote is enough to make you weep.  
How has  Annie has stayed so sweet in spite of it all?   Isn't it a blessing that dogs do not bring our human hangups to the table, eh? 
What time is it?  It is time to say thank you to everyone who helped make this possible!   Now it is also time to help spread Annie's story so that she can find someone as special as she is!
I love a dog. He does nothing for political reasons. ~Will Rogers
