Wordless [Wildlife] Wednesday

Okay, almost wordless. . . watch out for babies this spring! This adorable little guy was found and brought into the shelter after his mama and siblings were hit by a car. It’s not uncommon to find baby animals in the spring and early summer, but remember – just because they are alone doesn’t mean they need your help. Be sure to do your research before you go scooping up a little critter that might just be waiting for moms return! Luckily for this little guy we have local wildlife rehabbers that will nurse him back to health until he is big enough to released back into the wild.

That Time I Accidentally Went Swimming

I get to try lots of new fun things in this foster home – certainly a lot more than I was able to do in the shelter.  Foster mama takes me on long walks around the neighborhood or around fun outside places with lots of people or also sometimes around the woodies in her backyard. I like the woodies because they are calm and quiet but also have lots of sniffs of creatures I have never met before! I always look forward to our walks in the woodies.

On this one particular day it was a bit warmer and both foster mama and I were feeling adventurous. We were trotting along in the woods when all of a sudden we saw water. I’d never really gotten the chance to see water like that before (it was called a streams?) so since we were feeling adventurous, we walked right up to the edge. To foster mama’s surprise, I put my paws right in!

Since I was being oh so brave with my paws, foster mama decided to keep going and see how far I’d venture into the streams. We came to a part that was awfully deep – unbeknownst to me! – and foster mama just kept plodding along like it was nothing, so of course I followed her! Boy was that a bad idea. I went in deeper than I have ever been! Luckily that is only about eight inches, but still! It caught my poor little doggy brain totally by surprise and I was eeyore-ing all over the place (that’s what foster mama calls my confused/sleepy/nervous face). Luckily I recovered immediately, shook it off and have now vowed to never go near water again! Okay, maybe not quite that, especially as foster mama is saying we are going swimming when it gets warmer, but I am definitely taking my time in the puppy pool first!

How to Spend a Springtime Weekend

We were blessed with an amazingly gorgeous Mother’s Day weekend, and Otis is the perfect dog to share it with.

We went on road trips.

We played outside.

We worked on our tans.

Then we resigned ourselves to the couch to recover from all the Vitamin D and adventuring.

See? Perfect.

First Spring Weekend!

This is the first official weekend of spring. I’m not sure what the forecast is, but we all know spring weather can be kind of crazy. So if it’s nice out, you can take a lesson from MCHS’s adoptable Annie and play outside:

Or, if we get a bad case of spring showers, you can follow in Baxter & Miss Piggy’s lead and snuggle up with someone on the couch. :-)

(Does that photo not make you totally burst with happiness? Maybe it’s just a former fostermom thing…)

I hope you all enjoy this first weekend of spring as much as your pets probably will!
