Today’s post is not about my dogs.
This post is about other dogs.
It’s about shelter dogs. Cuz we have some.
First, we have Lambchop – he’s like a Lab X Catahoula or something. He’s super cool lookin’.
And he likes to play ball, which makes my life way super easier. Shelter dogs who play fetch are so much easier to exercise than ones who don’t. You can tire them out more quickly (which is good when you still have a half dozen other dogs waiting to be exercised) and when it’s hot out, like it is now, you don’t have to get all sweaty running around with a dog.
But if we have a dog who doesn’t like to play fetch, but does like to play with another dog, this also makes my life easier. Like Rockstar, who is a 9 month old Lab X Ridgeback:
He likes to play with Pixie, who is a one year old … mini Husky. I dunno what else to call her; she’s only as big as Piper, maybe even a bit smaller.
But if you have a dog who doesn’t like to play ball and isn’t yet allowed to play with other dogs, the easiest thing to do is trick a coworker into playing with the dog, so you don’t get all hot and sweaty and tired.
So you make Officer Johnson play with Tonka, a baby bullmastiff.
And then there’s Sassy Brown, a one year old Shepherd mix, who would really like someone to adopt her.
All of these lovelies, and lots of other cute animals too, are available at the District of North Vancouver Animal Welfare Facility. Come on down and meet them, maybe adopt one! You can meet Spring, who comes to work with me most days :)
