I am very pleased to say I have finally joined a dog rescue. It's a long story how it came about but, I will try hard to shorten it for your reading pleasure.

Here is the story of my start;

I saw a post on Facebook about 4 dogs in Mexico who were being shipped here to Canada so they would have a chance at a forever home. The post went on to say these dogs needed someone who was flying back from Mexico to be on the same plane with them. One of the many nurses I know was going to a wedding in Cancun. She was agreeable to help out. Well.... there was a snag in this plan. Air Canada wanted too much money to ship the dog. So the offer fell thru. But, the story ends well.....there were enough people who were traveling via other airlines and there was even someone who paid all the airfare for one of the dogs and.....the dogs all got to Canada. Since this happened, all the dogs have been either fostered out or, adopted.

Thru this one incident I started writing to the woman who started this rescue. One thing lead to another ( I offered my help) and I joined the rescue whose name is the title to this post.

My heart is swelled well beyond it's normal size this morning.... I was able to do some fund raising for the group and will know I have helped the dogs. My eyes are tearing up.

Here's a rescue dog.... Sonny as a puppy. 

Little old me...
