Tootsie playing with my dogs.
She got along well with my two dogs when she and Ollie came over for a visit on Saturday, May 18.
Just goes to show they are different dogs once they get out..

Who says Bruno can't be trained?
After spending some time with Bruno last week I was able to train him
to help around the shelter. Watch out Lisa and Bill, your jobs may be
on the line!

Bruno loves to swim.
I brought Bruno over to swim and the boy spent an hour in the pond.

Orbit and Saber come over to play with my dogs, Bella (Golden/Corgi adopted from SCAS in May) and Colby (Bordernese rescue in 2010 from Lost Angels).

Movie: Orbit, Sabre, Bella and Colby playing

Saber has been coming over to play and go swimming with Colby and Bella (named Cheri at the shelter, we adopted her last May).
A little reserved at first, Saber now loves to swim and play with his new buds.
