Sweet shelter dog Ella just scored a home that will give her everything she ever dreamed of: Stuffed animals, cookies, visitors, friendship, love. Dogs are zen masters about living in the moment, so we feel good knowing that, even though her time is temporary, she doesn't know (or care) what a calendar is. She's our latest compassion hold case, and thanks to BR volunteers, she's getting every luxury in her final days.
Ella's challenge is her advanced age and the fact that she's not willing to share her people with other dogs. Unfortunately dividing the home with baby gates has not been a big selling point, so she ran out of options. We'll keep our ears peeled though just in case someone is willing to give her a long-term safe space free of pesky youngins.' But either way, she's living happily inside every single moment and she's teaching us how to soak up the NOW. Bless you, Ella.
Petal's Challenge - Sooo Close!
We're only 193 dollars away from making a big BIG jump on our fundraising scale. Lori Lubin, Carol Krena, Paula Vanlare and Eryn Smith all muscled the bar up within inches of our big 10K matching gift run this morning with their generous paypal donations. Thank you ladies! If you heard the sound of cheering from the general direction of Oakland CA today, that was us!
