One year ago I began this blog with a post about the K-9 Doggie Kerplunk. I was proud to attend the free swim for dogs with Esther as my companion this year. She had the time of her young life and did not stop running for one second because there was always something new to chase or see or hear or smell. I hope you can find your own dog in these pictures.
Pictures of Caleb, Liana, Rhea, Isabella, and Rose discovering storytime with Coriander (Andy) a R.E.A.D. Certified Golden Retriever. The program was held at Mary Cheney Library on Wednesday after school.
On December 14, Pack Leaders Rescue of East Hartford brought Esther and some of her siblings from Arkansas to the PetSmart at the Plaza at Buckland Hills. She lives with us now and we couldn’t be happier.
At the Petsmart, poor Esther was alone in a cage shaking like a leaf. She was much smaller than the other puppies and obviously fearful. One of the rescue volunteers took her out of the cage and handed her to me suggesting I walk away from the noise and chaos of the adoption event. I sat down with her in the back of the store and knew I would take her home with me.
She is adjusting well to the New England weather after scaring us with some health issues the first week. Fortunately, the vets and other staff at Manchester Veterinary Clinic are excellent diagnosticians and careful practitioners so Esther is now happy and healthy and gaining weight.
We hope to check out the dog park at Mt. Nebo soon.
