After a long morning and afternoon meeting with the florist and looking through wedding flower photos….
these are really pretty, but we chose something different
Meeting with the photographer…
And a full belly of Mexican food (thanks dad)
What I’m most thankful and lucky for today…
Was seeing the absolute joy on a shelter pup’s face when I handed him a dog toy
He was soo excited. I was about to go into the shelter to drop off a big box of toys, but a volunteer was walking him down the street (he lived at the shelter) and he looked at me longingly when he walked by, taking big sniffs of the toy basket.
I gave him a cute octopus toy and he was so thrilled! He squeaked it and squeaked it and then carried it in his mouth all down the street.
It made my day.
The rest of the drop-off experience today was both inspiring and heartbreaking. I cried for a sec after I left one of the shelters. They all looked SO lonely. All the pups were in cement cages with just a bed inside. Whenever anyone walked into the hall, they were so thrilled and hopeful that someone would play with them. Their tails wagged furiously and I got licks through the cages. “Choose me, PLEASE choose me!
Yes, I wanted to take all of them home with me.
I’ll write more later…and have two more shelters to visit tomorrow, but to everyone who donated, THANK YOU! As I saw once again today…toys really do make a difference for these pups.
I hope you had a wonderful Saturday!
