Monday's Mutts!

After taking last weekend off due to exhaustion from my Boise trip, I went back to the animal shelter this weekend to walk the doggies!!! Without further ado, here's who I hung out with this weekend....
Max: Boxer, Dog; Salmon, ID
This is Max. He has a loooot of energy. So far he's really been the only dog to pull on the leash, but he got much better as we walked.  He also likes to make sure everyone (dogs) know where he's been, if ya know what I mean *nudge.

Harpo: Yellow Labrador Retriever, Dog; Salmon, ID
This guy. Ugh. I want to take him home so badly.  He's a smart little guy. He gets super excited and jumpy when you first get him out, but he calms down and walks like a champ. On our walks we practice walking without pulling and sitting. I want him, I want him, I want him!!! I want all of them...
Daisy: Border Collie, Dog; Salmon, ID
Daisy came to the shelter because her owner passed away.  She's super shy and isn't used to being around other animals, so she got to hang out in the office.  She and I went for a short walk because she is huuuuge. Apparently, she was well fed at her house! When you kneel down to pet her, she'll come up real slow and then reach out her paw and touch you. She needs a good, quiet home.
Victor: Border Collie, Dog; Salmon, ID
Holy energy, Victor! He jumped in circles for the first part of the walk, and then ran back and forth in front of me for the remainder of it. I try to keep them fairly calm while walking, but this guy just couldn't contain his joy, and I didn't do much to stop it :) At one point, we jumped in circles together!

Otis: Black Labrador Retriever, Dog; Salmon, ID
This is Otis.  He's a year old (with biiig paws).  I guess he's been adopted twice and brought back twice as a result of his energy level (and digging up a yard).  He's a lab. And a puppy. Come on, people! So, Otis and I hung out for awhile.  He's the sweetest!

Oh! Remember Greta from this post? She was adopted last week!!!!

On an entirely not dog related note, Bay Area Mommy is hosting a KitchenAid mixer giveaway with Easy Dough Fundraising
I want one of these sooooo badly. It would definitely help when the fella makes bread, and I'd like to get into baking a little more.  What better inspiration than a free KitchenAid!!!
Have a wonderful Monday :)
