Thanksgiving is a time for friends, family and holiday feasts—but also a time for possible distress for our animal companions.
Summer is in full effect, and in true California fashion, it sure is a hot one! When the temperatures are on the rise, we like to get creative by giving our foster dogs frozen treats as special snacks.
My name is Cranberry. I am a four-month-old, adorable puppy. This past November, I was rescued along with my mom, four brothers, and four sisters from a shelter in Los Angeles. We moved to a foster home and spent our days sleeping, eating and playing. Fun, huh?! The time came for all of us to meet our new families. My siblings - Wishbone, Acorn, Pecan, Rolls, Stuffing, Yam, Butternut, and Sweet Potato - were all adopted, just in time for Thanksgiving. Even though there were families interested in taking me home, I wasn't ready for adoption because I wasn't feeling well. You see, I wasn't growing as fast as my brothers and sisters, and I was a lot slower than I should be. Being a puppy is a lot of work - but, I was way more tired than normal.
Fozzie Bear, formerly known as Hodor has an amazing life. His story is a wonderful reminder that not every great adopter fits into a perfect mold, and as rescuers, we need to keep an open mind to different lifestyles and living situations. Nik was definitely not a typical adopter. For work he travels the country consulting for organic farmers, spending a lot of time in his vehicle.
When I adopted Olive from the South LA Shelter, she was attacked by a stray dog within the first month we had her. Due to her fear and anxiety, we had to work through a lot of reactive leash energy which was new for my fiance Tim and me. I think every dog you own teaches you something new about how to understand them, lead them, and teaches you things about your own personality.
