Friday Friends

If you've been following this blog, you'll already have been introduced to some of my rescue dogs. These pictures were taken over the holidays and I wanted to share them with you.

This is Simone, a tri-colored collie. Fish have it so much better than dogs in a breeding situation. Fish must have ideal conditions or they won't breed and can't be forced to - the water must be good, they must have adequate food and ample space. Simone, on the other hand, was kept confined to a cage and was tragically malnourished. She wasn't expected to make it when the Robeson County Humane Society rescued her from her horrible circumstances. They asked me to foster her. That was three years ago, and she's never left. Nor do I want her to! She is always the perfect lady. Now healthy and happy, I try to give her all the love she deserves.

We recently added to our family with Lucy, who is part Jack Russell. We believe she is part Basset Hound or corgi, as she is very long! But she acts like she is part cat.

Lucy is the third dog we have adopted through the Robeson County Humane Society. She was rescued about seven months ago and immediately came down with parvo. She went from 14 pounds to 10 pounds and fought for her life. Fortunately, she fully recovered and is having the time of her life with our three other rescue dogs.

The neighbors behind us own several cats so they are kept busy jumping through the doggie doors throughout our home and running along the fence line while the cats sit primly on the other side and watch them.
