Visiting a Friend's Dog!

Two of our friends have gone on vacation, and left their beautiful, big, 120 pound Mastiff at the Cozy Canine Camp in Millersville, Md. *We recommend them!*
So, last night when I picked up our dogs, I checked on Gracie. She was very quiet...until I came over!
It was about 5:30pm and she had been brought in and out throughout the day (the folks at daycare won't keep dogs out too long in the heat). Myla (who works there) told me that she and the others have been working with Gracie, to try and get her used to other dogs, and feeling comfortable. (They're really attentive).
- When I did see Gracie, I called her by her name, and she looked up. Then I sang to her as our friend instructed (although I was afraid the other dogs there would Howl). She got up from laying down, started wagging her tail, and SMILING! I opened the door to her big room, and took this photo. I also scratched the back of her neck and sang the little song to her. She was very happy. I also left 2 biscuits for her, too. It means a lot when a dog sees someone familiar. So, If you know a friend or neighbor whose dog is being boarded while they're away take 30 minutes and say hello to the dog. It means a lot. Think of how you would feel... dogs are no different.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
