My dad is doing well. Mr. Fix-It had knee surgery to repair a tear and "significant" arthritis and is off work for several weeks. It's not really taking care of two needy males that keeps me running, though that certainly is enough!! It's this dog rescue chairmanship thingy!!
Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining. I love doing this job but there are some days I literally can't get away from my computer and emails. Emails about a dog in need, emails from potential adopters, emails, emails, emails!!
And...in the middle of all this, my foster dog, Bettie Page got adopted. Oh yeah.....that's supposed to happen when you foster!! I miss her but she got a fantastic home and it's not that far from me!
There she is in her new home on her new bed acting like the princess she is!!
Part of rescue is making sure we have funds to help future incoming dogs. So I've been incredibly busy running an online Rescue Raffle drawing. For $10 you get 5 raffle tickets that could win you a custom hand-drawn 8x10 portrait of your pet by artist extraordinaire, Linda Zielinski. She will do any dog, any breed. Below is an example of her work.
This is of course, an English Cocker Spaniel but I'm telling you she is a phenomenal artist and can do any breed.
See what I mean!!!
If you are interested in entering our raffle go to:
http://www.ecsca.org/rescuehome.html Raffle ends on July 31st and winner to be drawn on Aug 5th. Proceeds benefit English Cocker Spaniel Rescue dogs!
Hope you are all having a great summer that is not too hot, not too cold and not too dry!
