We don't have time to tell you the whole story about the day in one blog, it will take several blogs. We met old friends, fosters that have gone to forever homes, but come back to the Rescue Reunion to celebrate with us. Fosters that we may have seen as scared and abused dogs, now are shining examples of the resiliency of our canine friends. They are running free, playing as hard as they can, their new owners sharing the joy with their new best friends. This is what rescue is all about. Rescued dogs, showing the joy they have from a second chance at life. If you have ever helped rescue a dog, then you had a part in making this picnic possible. What were once lives at risk are now lives at play. Enjoy!
The photo below, shows a beautiful, calm morning when we arrived at the lake, if you look closely you can see the snow on the Rocky Mountain peaks behind the lake. How quickly several hundred Goldens can destroy the calm.
Thank you to all the volunteers that have made this day possible by helping a dog or cat move down the road to a new home. This is the proof that donating and volunteering in rescue was worth while.
