“No one appreciates the very special genius of your conversation as much as the dog does.” ~ Christopher Morley
I recently had the pleasure of spending time with some of my favourite people and dogs at an adoption event held by Earthdog Terrier Rescue of Manitoba. Here are some of the adoptables…
Would you believe Eugene is only 5 months old… he will be one big gorgeous boy when full-grown.
Fiona is one very loving, sweet gal… the ultimate cuddle bug.
Lacey is a fun-loving gal… she would do great with an active family and would love a canine playmate.
Pumpkin is an energetic guy who gets along with everyone… cats, kids, dogs.
Ava is a calm, mellow girl who is larger than she appears in the photos. She is about 50 pounds or more.
Some of these dogs are long-timers in the rescue. Having known them, I can’t help but wonder why. They are such good dogs and would make wonderful companions for the right families. If you would like more info on any of these dogs please contact Earthdog Terrier Rescue of Manitoba.

“Rescued is my favourite breed.”
The time of year doesn’t really matter at the shelter… it is almost always busy and noisy.
Happily, this holiday season, the numbers are low but, sadly, many of the dogs that are still waiting and hoping are “long-timers”… many here since the summer, some since the spring.
It’s these dogs that are featured here today… all decked out in front of the Christmas tree, hoping that they too will get their Christmas wish.
“Hi,” I said. She came over, licked my hand discreetly, allowed herself to be scratched for a time, chased her tail in a dignified circle, lay down again. I remember thinking: “There are times God puts a choice in front of you.” I often had such thoughts back then. We took the dog. ~ Stanley Bing
