Why I Love Dogs, Reason 123: (Mostly) Wordless Wednesdays


A spin on one of my other Wordless Wednesday series, "Why I Volunteer"!  There are so many reasons why I love dogs and choose to pursue a career working with them, it would be impossible to list them all.  But we'll start with this reason:

Dogs always put a smile on my face.


Garth was just sitting like this in his kennel, sitting up straight and tall, stiff as a statue.  Such a goofball!


Gotta love these boxer sisters' underbites! :D

Rico's strange little lean (PS:  This cutie is available for adoption at the HSNI!)


Last night I was a little down.  I had the PM shift to let the dogs out at the doggie hotel I work at; one of the dogs was a sweet standard poodle who came out of her suite, looked around, and then turned around and went back in.  I figured she was just sleepy and didn't want to go outside.  Seconds later, though, she came back out carrying her stuffed monkey toy.  She placed it gently on the ground while she did her business, then picked it up and carried it inside.  It was the cutest thing ever, and it just made my entire night.  It really is the little things. :)

PS:  I'm sure many of you have heard about the recent passing of Dr. Lorie.  I did not know her personally, but I do know she was an amazing woman, vet, and lover of animals.  Please say a prayer for her family and friends; you will be missed, Dr. Lorie. <3

  3. I got some bad news this week, too, and walking my shelter dog buddies yesterday definitely made me feel better and took my mind off my troubles for a while. Dogs are the best!
