Just One Wish… a Home

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

Sweet Nora is a mix-breed Dane, not a purebred… but I thought this verse very cute. I have a feeling she will grow into it.

The Great Dane
Yes, it’s a Great Dane..
No, I don’t have a saddle for it.
Yes, it’s a house dog.
No, I don’t have a huge house.
Yes, it’s friendly.
No, it doesn’t eat that much.
I know it’s the biggest dog you ever seen.
It’s the biggest dog I’ve ever seen, too.

Happy News: Nora has been adopted!

Miss Daisy Needs A Home

Miss Daisy is a most beautiful girl… a Shar Pei / Shepherd mix.
Miss Daisy

Found alone and homeless on the streets of Winnipeg she is now safe and waits for a new family at Winnipeg Animal Services.

But, the wait has been long.

Daisy first came into the shelter way back in April, almost three months ago. That is a long time for an active girl to have to wait and be patient. Daisy does have Entropion in both eyes which needs to be addressed but otherwise she is a healthy, sweet, friendly gal, who loves to play and loves being with people.

It is difficult to understand sometimes why certain dogs are passed on by. It certainly baffles us at the shelter in Daisy’s case. She is a most awesome dog who simply needs a home.

“All great friendships start with a paw-shake. Reach out.”

Update: Happy News! Daisy is adopted!!
