We have this thing for rescue dogs. Here are our 2 yard dogs. Both were rescued. The larger one Lulu was a puppy that someone was getting rid of. We couldn't bear to see her just thrown away. So we got a rescue dog discount and had her neutered. We had taken her mama as well but alas hubby accidentally ran over her one day in our driveway. The other smaller black dog is Fredrick. He was another rescue dog that someone was just throwing away. He is supposed to be a Chihuahua but think there is something else mixed in. He has pretty well bonded to me and to Lulu. They are such best friends and will run and play all day together. It seems they are always up to something. Lulu has taken up with my husband and any time he gets out in the Kawasaki mule, Lulu jumps in beside him for a ride. They have such energy and pep and sometimes I watch them wishing I had just half as much energy. They both are our "keepers of the gate" and alarm us to anyone happening to come up or come by our place. I think they are teaching me to try to romp and play as hard as they do. Just wish I could keep up with them. I did get a 10 minute walk in. And keeping my calories on the low end. So will weigh tomorrow and know if things have changed.
