Klinger and Gigi

I made two new best friends today while volunteering to walk dogs at the Roice Hurst Humane Society.

I had a ton of things to do today (um, like post today's letterpress giveaway...), but I couldn't wait to get back out there to walk some more dogs. I had planned to walk three dogs, but I got all the way to the shelter and realized that I left a giant bag of dog treats on the counter. I raced home, fully expecting to find Sadie fat and happy and an empty bag in the middle of the floor. It could happen--just ask her how much she enjoyed that whole loaf of cinammon raisin bread her idiot mom left on the counter the last time she went dog walking...

First up today was Klinger, a 1.5-year-old male Husky mix. I guess he was destined to be a sled dog until someone realized he is deaf. He's sweet as can be, and it took him no time at all to realize that a wiggle on the leash meant it was cookie time!

The second dog today was Gigi. She's a 3-year-old Golden Retriever mix and it pretty much broke my heart when I got home and looked her up on the website and found out that she came to this shelter from another shelter where she had "run out of time." I just can't believe she hasn't found a home yet. She has the sweetest eyes and not a mean bone in her body. She sits on command, took cookies gingerly from my hand, and despite it all still wags her tail when you say her name. I hope she finds a family soon.
