An exciting update on our sweet bionic girl, Hope: Although they were delayed a week, we finally received Hope's braces/orthotics. When she took her first test drive, the first few steps were awkward but very quickly she was moving well on her walk...and already better than before.
Coco - Mike says Coco is "doing fine" and is a real cuddle bug. When complimented for adopting a senior dog (Coco's 9), he said he saw her picture in the paper as "Pet of the Week" and while he wasn't planning to get another dog, he looked at that face and thought, "She won't get a home unless I adopt her."
On a special day out with Shelby, it went like this: We got in my car after much excitement of just walking to the car. I rolled the windows down and Shelby got right over by the window and let the breeze blow on her fur. She was loving life in that moment. We traveled to Pet Headquarters in Prescott Valley for a shampoo.
Our evening of "Cosmic Bowling" at Antelope Lanes in Prescott Valley on October 31st was a howling success. Thanks to everyone who came out and bowled or just showed up in costume, had a great time and donated to Circle L Ranch.
Just wanted to give you a short update on Sage whom we adopted in September. She is such a sweet girl and has given me the impetus I needed to start on a regular walking routine. She LOVES her walks (we don’t have a fenced in yard but are in the process of doing that) and enjoys rides in the car.
Last year we posted 10 benefits of adopting seniors, featuring Glory, a Black Lab Mix. We've had wonderful reports about our adopted seniors, their personalities, energy, obedience and affection, but we still have many waiting, and, saddly, Glory, is one of them.
We're happy to introduce Delores (Dee) Kelly, our Volunteer of the Month for November. Dee came to Circle L with a smile and willingness to help where needed. Walking dogs was a natural for her, and she soon fell in love with Little Max and decided to make him her own.
What can be said about Dogtoberfest? Nothing that hasn't been said before but we'll say it again: THANK YOU! A little rain couldn't dampen the enthusiasm at this event, Sunday, October 4th, on the Prescott Downtown Square. It was a busy, educational and fun day, and a great time to see every possible breed of dog!
