easily distracted by furry critters...


I think I'll miss her but I think O'Reilly is REALLY going to miss her... and that's hard. You can't explain to a dog what you are doing, that you are helping another dog but she won't stay forever.

They have been practically inseparable.

I am so thankful to have found the woman who will take Betsy. It is going to be a great home for her. She does live close by so that's cool. I met her friend at the dog park and that's how I found her. Betsy will have a playmate and get to go camping and to a mountain cabin.

A dog that had a sucky start and was in danger of being euthanized is getting her life redeemed in a great way. That makes it all worth it.

Reservoir Dogs


So the deal with yesterday's post...

A friend told me about this place that's a 3 mile walk around and takes you to some reservoirs where they let the water out from the dam. Pretty cool

I took the kids on Saturday. O'Reilly wades out but Betsy hits the edge of the water and just starts swimming like it's what she was meant to do! It was so cool to watch.

Sunday we went back WITH CAMERA! and a friend and her dog too!

Saturday Betsy was pretty reserved. She swam and played a little but it was too new to totally let loose!

Sunday she was uncorked! She was jumping in the water, running in it, loping, it was so fun. Pulling O'Reilly in and chasing!

We all had a great time.

Betsy and O'Reilly playing - she's a natural born swimmer and he'll go along with anyone who will play with him!
