Welcome Back

After over a week's break from shelter biz, we're back. Shutting down Pit Bull Hall and sending the dogs home with volunteers for a slice of summer has become an annual tradition.

It's a great way to give the team, the dogs, our trainer Sara and um, me, a break from the kennels. Not that kennels are bad -- we love the kennels because they help us save lives. But still. It's so nice not to wake up in the middle of the night and wonder, "Ack! - Did I remember to change Dango's bedding today? Is Peter getting stressed? And who's going to work the Thursday pm shift this week!"

So, we took a break...Lucky us. Think of all the shelters out there that can never take a break. Ever.

The ten days whizzed by. It just didn't seem long enough. But then the team posted notes on our message board saying, "I can't wait to get back" and "I'm having withdrawal symptoms." Lucky us, once again.

So, Lil'Bit, Dango, Wags and Ru filed into their little kennels today, wagging their tails and ready to make big goo-goo eyes at anyone who dared stepped inside to check out the BIG SCARY PIT BULLS.

Heh. Lucky them.

Rested and Ready,
Donna & the Crew
