Lessons from Ode and Eve

Friendship. Joy. Love. Hope. Brave Spirit. Playfulness. Open heart. I had the good fortune of visiting Ode and Eve in their foster home last night along with Jessie of Stray Dog Arts who is donating her time and creative talent to paint a portrait of Ode. One would never know from watching the brave spirit of Ode play, that she had been through a horrific experience. Her ears have healed nicely. To read more about Ode you can visit the original blog posting.An hour with these puppies provided us with more pearls of wisdom than we bargained for!

This is, without a doubt, the ideal foster home for a puppy to get lots of socialization, playtime and exposure to a plethora of stimuli and experiences: dogs, cats, kids, bunnies, adults and all sorts of noises!

Ode and Eve (who is up for adoption now) both came from up north in the Red Lake area. They are now best friends. Watching them play will simply warm your heart -- a beautiful reminder of how much we can learn from our four-legged friends about love, forgiveness, joy and friendship.

We are still working with Ode on skin and itching issues and will have her up for adoption once she has a clean bill of health and has been spayed. Eve, on the other hand... well, she's waiting for someone to swoop her off her paws and take her home. We have lots of dogs waiting ... be sure to check out our website.
