We all got to see some of our old fosters and if we were lucky, they remembered us and gave us big old kisses! I can always count on my dear Calypso (now Velma) to remember me. Her Mom and Dad, Katie and Dan, have been so diligent about bringing her to visit me. I also got to see Piko who got adopted back in July and he immediately hopped up in my lap and gave me oodles of kisses. ::sigh:: I almost cried. :) I got to see a beautiful doxie now named Heidi and the great silly boy currently known as Charlie. Neither of them had a clue who I was, but boy did they seem happy and loved and that's what counts.
At one point I was looking around and it struck me at how spoiled and loved all of these dogs now are. All of these dogs were at one time unwanted, neglected, discarded or treated as livestock. How amazing to see so much happiness on the faces of people and to see so many dogs that had rocky lives now living in the lap of luxury.
We heard from so many people after the shindig about how much fun not only they had, but how much fun their dogs had as well. Everyone was commenting how wore out they were after the fun filled afternoon. Here's a picture of an adoptable and very lovable dog with our group who decided he'd had so much fun he needed to take a nap in the middle of a herd of chihuahuas. :)
If a day like that didn't re energize my desire to volunteer in rescue, I don't know what would. I've already requested my next foster - hopefully I'll be getting him or her in the next week.
