JUANA: We started our day with our regular routine, but we were also attending an Adoption Day event. Two of Daisy’s pups were going to Adoption Day, Hank and Elliott. There I am with Elliott. He is the big fluffy one and I wish he could be our next kiddo and I could take him home. Every one of Daisy’s puppies are completely different and they are all just so cute.
BILL: Let me stress that we don’t breed dogs here. We rescue them. Did she come to us pregnant?
JUANA: No, she had already had her babies. She was walking on the road in Cedar Creek. Her puppies were walking along behind her and Caragan, one of our caregivers, saw them and picked them up. They didn’t have any tags and the puppies were only about three weeks old. Obviously, someone just dumped Daisy and her puppies. How sad! We rescued them and they are such gorgeous puppies.
BILL: What does your hat say, “Rescue Mom?”
There I am with my little Elliott and I am wearing my Rescue Mom hat.
It was a very good day, because we also took Lola to Adoption Day for the first time. She is so very sweet with people, but she can be rambunctious and she is strong. Our wonderful volunteer David Bonski said that he would take care of her. There’s David Rentz bringing her out of the Bollinger Building.
BILL: A lot of Pits and Chows are that way.
JUANA: We got lots of pictures of our babies in crates getting ready to go to Adoption Day. We also took Joan and Lita to Adoption Day.They were our neighbors’ puppies and we rescued and took them in and they are enjoying life at Straydog. There’s Shelby and me with Joan and Lita.
BILL: We should have gotten a picture of her with him down by the pond. We should let her take the camera and take pictures, like I used to do with Noble. I would shoot pictures on our walks.
