CeCe gets ready for the New Year!

CeCe (AKA Sugar Bear)

Merry Christmas!

Santa Paws found some very nice goldens on this Christmas day.
I promise, I have been a very good girl.

Thank you Santa Paws!

Cedar loves his new bone.

Blessing gets adopted!

The Night Before Rescue

Santa works quietly in mysterious ways
He stops by shelters and picks up strays.
He knows the names of those who care
And places dogs in rescue so MAGRR beware.

He slips past the hustle and bustle and strife
To find a perfect family to foster this  life.
They feed and they love this new rescued pup
And wait for a forever family to pick them up.
There are too many stops like this one you see
People discarding their pets and setting them free.
But just when you think there is no hope for this pup
A wonderful MAGRR  volunteer steps up.

It takes a lot of people to carry out this dream
From intake to fosters to the home visiting team.
So maybe it wasn't Santa that worked in mysterious ways
But a group of MAGRR folks that saved us that day.

Thanks so much for rescuing me from the shelter.  I now have a new family that loves me.  I will forever be grateful for the wonderful people who saved my life.

Thanks, Blessing

Blessing is a retriever.  She loves playing ball with Cedar.  If you need a little baby girl to bring you joy, then Blessing is the girl for you.  She loves people and likes to cuddle.  She takes treats nicely and just wants a family to love her.

Blessing goes to the parade!

Blessing had a fun time today walking in the Germantown Christmas Parade.  She was one of many MAGRR goldens that showed off their shiney MAGRR tags.

Look at her runnin' around
Bringing joy to her new family
Lula's come to town.

Oops!! Blessing is foster #101

As I was going through my foster list, I kept thinking that I was missing someone.  Well, I forgot to add Jonah.  He was adopted in 2006.  I remember him so well, because he climbed over our 6 foot wooden fence.  While I was driving to school this morning, I kept thinking that I did not remember seeing his name.  I get updates on him from time to time because his mom is a MAGRR volunteer and she is also a runner.
Our sweet Lula Belle leaves tomorrow.  We will miss our sweet Lula.  Even though she has only been with us several weeks, it is hard to say goodbye.

    We run for Rescue!

    We ran the St. Jude Half Marathon this morning.  Wendy and I ran for MAGRR, Tim ran for NMGDR and Sherry ran for the Vining Sparks Hero Team.  I'm not sure we can say it was lots of "fun", but we all finished and it was a great race.  Around 11,000 runners were on the course and lots of volunteers cheered along the way.  Around mile 7, someone came along beside me and asked if I had fostered Autumn.  We chatted a little while and it was so great to talk to one of our Foster's adopters.  Autumn is now Sooie and she lives in Germantown with her family.  That alone was worth the 13.1 miles.
