Shooting Sundance

I have a goal this weekend to get a great picture of Sunny. So, much to his dismay, he gets to spend his days being followed by his own personal paparazzi (puparazzi?). He isn’t the most willing model (he’d much rather be cuddling or playing), but he occasionally forgets to make himself blurry and takes a pretty handsome picture. Then it’s just up to me to not ruin it!

Admittedly, a couple of these images are not my best work. They are really more of a reminder to use an actual camera and not a smart phone. But, it felt like cheating to post just one image, so we have a few that show his personality and a few that show his rugged good looks!

It’s just a Retriever kinda day

So my internet is being weird lately. Everything has been a bit odd, to be honest. Yesterday was a bit of a roller coaster (under exaggerating) and this weekend might not be much better. But, that’s not the point of this post. Actually, I have a few dogs I’ve been keeping an eye on lately and wanted to share them here.

This handsome boy comes from a home but doesn’t seem to have a name. His owner gave him to the shelter because he acted too much like a Golden! His owner said he was ‘tired of the dog digging and bringing sticks and such into the yard’. (Clearly someone hasn’t read my post about daycare for destructive dogs!) So now this young (just 2 years old!) Golden mix is stuck in a shelter for the second time in his life, and he is on the urgent list.

This unnamed hero is located in Suwannee County Animal Control in McAlpin, FL. Frankly I’m not sure where that is, but someone said North Fl, so we’ll go with that. Aussie and Me rescue is actually asking for fosters for this boy, and I did offer my name as a temp foster, but if they want something long term he may still need help. We typically don’t consider an animal safe until it has physically left the shelter!

It’s all about Retrievers today, and aren’t they lovely! This girl’s shelter says: “Lola is a 7 month old female Retriever. She can’t understand why someone would abandon her at the shelter. Lola loves to play, and she is a very smart young girl. Located in Crawfordville, Florida. Contact”

When I was a little girl, we had a Black Lab like Lola. Ours was dumb as dirt, but she was still a fantastic dog.  =)

If you are interested in either dog, you are welcome to contact their shelter directly!

And in case you were wondering, adorable Amstel has been rescued!

I will be sure to update you if I take the unnamed Golden! Cross your fingers he gets out, no matter who rescues him!
