Beautiful Bella

Last_Chance_At_Life_dog_adopt_Bella

Good morning everyone!  I would like to introduce myself.  My name is Bella which is Latin for beautiful and I am a four year old German Shepherd.  That is my glamour photo above – have you ever seen such an enormous tongue?  Before I tell you more about myself, I would like to update you on Diva!  Diva went on a sleepover this week with Mike and his family fell in love with her.  She has enjoyed playing in the yard with her furry brother and is so happy to have found her forever home.  This is a picture of Diva with her brother.  They have matching ears!

Oh!  And let me update you on the renovations!  Robbin applied for a grant with Home Depot a few months ago and LCAL was approved!  Renovations started a few weeks ago.  Let me take you on a tour!

IMG_1143

The space is so open now and will be the perfect room for Meet and Greets and Puppy Playtime!  I can’t wait to see it when it is all finished.  Thank you to The Home Depot Foundation in Encinitas!  You have given us a wonderful opportunity.

Okay, back to ME!  I was surrendered by my Humans because they felt they didn’t have enough time for me.  Sigh.  At least they dropped me at the Shelter so I would be safe.  Like many German Shepherds, I can be a little anxious.   I love people and I am not a jumper – so I am most likely good with Little Humans too.  I also like dogs as long as we are properly introduced but I would probably be happiest not having to share my family with other fur balls.

German Shepherds are very intelligent and loyal.  We can learn just about anything.  Which is good, because truth be told, I could learn to walk better on a leash.  I am strong and I pull, so I need an experienced dog owner to make the decisions for me.  Here is a picture of me with Nate an LCAL volunteer.  Nate says I am wonderful – I just need my Human to be a Leader – so I don’t have to worry about that stuff.  Nate is here to take Tarzan for a play date.  Aren’t our volunteers wonderful?  “Hey!  Where is that squeaking sound coming from?  Who’s there?  Luna!  Is that you?”

IMG_1168

Luna came for a visit with Amanda.  She is just a puppy so I am not allowed to play with her.  Luna’s mommy, Harper, is still looking for her Furever Home.

0720191319 (1)

Here is a picture of Harper.  Isn’t she sweet?  If you are more of a Little Dog Human – Harper would be a wonderful addition to your home.  Harper and her puppies were dumped back in the spring and LCAL rescued them.  Her puppies have all been adopted but she is still waiting.  “Hand in there Mama!  Your Furever Family is out there looking for you.”

0719190921b~2

Okay, back to me.  I would love an active family who would take me on long walks and hiking.  Exercise helps a lot with anxiety – and I am a healthy and athletic girl!  I am not much of a fetcher.  This is me saying “Yea Lady, I am not going to go running after that ball.  I have too much dignity for that.  You want to play fetch – go get Tarzan or Kuma.”

IMG_1136

I do sit very pretty for a snack though.  Just remind me to take it gently!  Sometimes I can be a little bit pushy about my snacks.

IMG_1162

Hey everyone!  Are you paying attention to me?  Is it time to go for a walk?  What?  The interview is OVER?  I’m heading back to the clink?  I protest!

IMG_1159

Okay!  Looks like they are telling me to wrap it up.  If you are looking for a beautiful pure bred German Shepherd who is as intelligent as she is loyal.  Then look no further than ME – Bella the Beautiful.

California Cody’s Op Ed: Big is Beautiful!

Good Evening! Monday is a wrap everybody! California Cody (and LCAL alum) here to discuss a topic near and dear to my heart! But first some shout outs! I will start with ME. I have passed the 16 week mark post TPLO surgery and I am almost back to being my normal self, galloping around the house like a big black pony. It was tough being cooped up for four months but I am in less pain and enjoying my daily walks. Hurray for me! Even my fur is finally growing back on my leg!

Cody 1

And here is my big sister Abby. Mom says that Abby is built like a torpedo but I love all her chunky curves. Can you tell from this picture that she’s had enough of my celebrating – and would like me back in The Room? Be patient with me Abby – I am so happy to be feeling better!

Abby 1

Princess Lucy went on a sleepover this weekend and we are very happy for her! Way to go Princess! And Milo was adopted by a wonderful family who wanted a sibling for fur baby Maggie. Yay for Milo! Max found his forever home in June and last time we saw a picture he was snuggling up on the couch surrounded by pillows. Silly Max. Don’t you know the rules? Mom says no dog butts allowed on the furniture.

IMG_0774

Back to my Big is Beautiful OP Ed. In a state known for Teacups and Pocket dogs hanging out in celebrity’s purses – we Bigs can feel a bit overlooked. But when it comes to dog sizes, I say Big is Beautiful! Bigger dogs tend to be a little more laid back. The exception might be puppies like Tarzan. Tarzan is still in that wiggly, jumpy, talkative stage with a big personality. He loves being active with his humans and is motivated by food and affection. Tarzan is an LCAL favorite and we can’t quite figure out why he hasn’t found his Furever Family. He is the fun Big that is for sure. Here are some pictures of Tarzan from this weekend playing tug of war and being the Petco Greeter.

Tarzan

This is a picture of Tarzan greeting his friend Diva with a big kiss.

Big pups also tend to be smart and easy to train. Goddess Diva is a perfect example. When she first came to LCAL she was afraid of cars, dog beds, and just about everything strange. This weekend she came to the Petco event and she was better behaved than Tarzan and Princess Lucy! She has worked so hard in training classes with Amanda and boy does it show. Diva even had an admirer at Petco! Mike! Mike’s daughter recently left for college and he is looking to fill the quiet place she left behind. Will Diva be that special new addition? We are keeping our paws crossed. Here are some pictures of Diva from Saturday!

Diva 1

Diva 2

Like our smaller cousins, Bigs are very loyal to their humans and because of this, many of us work as service dogs. You don’t see Teacup dogs doing that! And Littles like to pretend they’re big by jumping and yapping. Us Bigs don’t have to bother with all that nonsense. We are confident in our bodies. And most of all big dogs are just a lot of fun! We like to jog, hike, and play Frisbee and Catch. We love a good BBQ (hotdogs are nectar of the gods in my opinion) and are great companions to take camping.   Here is a picture of Kuma out hiking!

55481537_10214497850141909_2768709921011662848_n

This weekend was the Petco Adoption Event and the Bigs were well represented by Stewart, Tarzan, and Diva! Truth is, LCAL Bigs are really more medium size pups but next to Princess Lucy and Frida we look like giants! My pal Stewart was there on Saturday. This is his second event and he is the model of good behavior. Stew is such a sweetheart. He is beyond all of that puppy craziness and just wants to hang out with his people. LCAL says he loves going out for his walks and if you are willing to sit with him, he will sit there all day if you will scratch his chest. Stewart is people friendly and good with other dogs. He is super handsome and as the remaining guy in the Old Dogs Rule organization we would love for Sweet and Sassy to find his Furever Family. (I keep trying to get Mom to bring Stew home with us, but she thinks Abby and I would be too much for him.) Here are a few recent pictures of Stewart from the Petco event.

Stewart 1

Stew 2

Kuma wasn’t able to make it to the Petco this past weekend. She was hanging out with her Foster Mom, Alana. Kuma has been working on gaining a bit of weight because people are mistaking her for a homeless pet. She just isn’t very food motivated (which I will be honest I don’t understand AT ALL because all I think about is cookies and kibble). But with a lot of love, walks and freeze dried nuggets in her dinner, she is filling out. Kuma would thrive in an active home with a family who likes to hike and jog. She loves humans – even kids! Cats – not so much. Small animals tend to trigger Kuma’s prey drive – so she would be better off in a home with big beautiful dogs like myself. Here is Kuma playing catch.

IMG_0476

And another of Kuma saying “Will you be my Furever Family?”

55575678_10214497851261937_1585175856613949440_n

So, as a finish my Op Ed I would like to say that nothing is more beautiful than having confidence and loving yourself. Sometimes this is difficult for us rescue dogs because we’ve been through so much. But volunteers like the LCAL Village help us re-learn that anything is possible when you have the right people there to support you.

IMG_0617

This is California Cody reminding you all that inside every Big Dog is a puppy who just needs some love and a hug. If you are interested in being that special human then come by and meet Diva, Kuma, Tarzan and Stewart.

Bridget amd Mary

(Cody’s Mama has a long history of loving Big Beautiful Dogs!)

Princess Lucy, Angel, and the Great Puppy Rescue

Lucy

Good Evening and Happy Summer Solstice Weekend Everyone! My name is Princess Lucy and I am one of the three Littles at LCAL. That is my glamour photo above. Frida and I rocked the PetCo Adoption Event with Tarzan on Saturday. Here is Frida’s glamour photo below. She is a little shyer than I am.

Frida

Frida, Clooney, and I make up the Littles at LCAL and this has been a month for Littles– let me tell ya. More on that in a minute. Let me take a moment to tell you a bit about Frida and me. (Clooney will introduce himself another week – since he wasn’t able to make it to the Adoption Event this weekend.)

Lady Frida is a sweet loving 11 year old girl who just wants a place to snuggle. Snuggling is her favorite past time!! Although she is a senior pup she still has some get up and go! She LOVES her walks. Lady Frida is not a barker like many Chihuahuas, but she will join in if the rest of the pack starts “singing.” She loves all people, including kids. She gets along great with the cats and other little dogs in her foster home. Her Foster Mom says she is “just a mellow, sweet soul” and they love having her. Here is a picture of Frida from Saturday saying “Hey, would you consider giving me a Furever Home?”

Frida 2

And another picture of Lady Frida with Tracy, an LCAL volunteer, who was helping out on Saturday.

Frida and Tracy

While Frida is all Lady, I can be a bit of a Pomeranian Princess. Like many “Royals” I have a big personality. In fact the AKC suggests that my Big Dog Demeanor is trapped in a Little Dog Body. I LOVE to give lots of kisses. And I am so smart and inquisitive (if I do say so myself). I can be a little nervous at first when meeting new people but I warm up quickly. I like to snuggle with my humans but I also have Royal manners and will only come up on the bed or couch when invited. I am around seven years young and I love to play with my Foster Mom, Colleen. In fact, here is a picture of me hanging out with Mom on Saturday!

Lucy and Colleen

I am happy running around – spinning actually – I spin in circles when I get excited. (One of my many tricks.) But I also enjoy relaxing in my dog bed. (A Princess needs her rest you know.) Of course I am crate trained and happy with all people, dogs and even cats! (Mainly because I am a little indifferent to dogs and cats and focus my attention on my Royal Subjects the Humans.) Here is another picture of me!

Lucy 2

Speaking of Littles, look who we found at the Adoption Event on Saturday!

Kitty

This Little Girl was about 5 weeks old and a nice guy named Benjamin found her crying by herself in the bushes. Benjamin wasn’t looking for a new family member but he took Kitty in and decided to adopt her. (Funny how that works out!) He was at PetCo getting supplies when we met them. Thank you so much for giving Kitty a safe and loving home and being her Furever Family. Here is a picture of Benjamin and Kitty.

katie-and-ben.jpg

Okay, now for the BIG NEWS! Do you remember The Route 62 Angel who rescued Puppy Rav from the garbage bag on the side of the highway? Well, she has done it again! The Route 62 Angel has an amazing ability of being in the right place at the right time to protect us Littles from harm. A few weeks ago, she was driving through the desert and spotted a litter of six puppies on the side of the road. She jumped out to rescue these babies and immediately called LCAL for help. In a few hours, The Great Puppy Rescue had begun! Really, who would leave these girls on the side of a desert highway with their brothers?

Puppy 2

Puppy 1

Puppy 3

But that is not the end of the story! As Angel was driving these six puppies to safety, she found ANOTHER litter of puppies. This baby here and her siblings!

Puppy 4

They were all by themselves wondering what had happened to their Mommy and their Humans! Well, the next day Angel went BACK to that lonely stretch of road leading out into the desert just to make sure she had found everyone. And she found TWO MORE puppies! Here is another picture. Doesn’t he have the most beautiful blue eyes! Angel is truly a wonder watching over us, protecting us from danger, and carrying blessings into our lives. Thank you Route 62 Angel!

Puppy 5

Well as you may imagine, this created a bit of puppy fever at LCAL. Everyone wanted a cuddle. And there were many offers from the LCAL Village to foster and adopt. We have a great Village and puppies have that “je ne sais quoi” about them. But, the applications for puppies are months in the queue. As a result, almost all the puppies had homes before they even made it out of 29 Palms. (I can admit it. Stewart, Frida, Diva, Kuma, Tarzan and I were all a little envious. But we wish those puppies the best.)

So! If you think you want to adopt a puppy, please get your applications in NOW, so you are ready when the opportunity presents itself. All the steps in the application process can be completed so you are good to go!

BUT also remember, us older guys have a lot to offer too. Honestly, maybe more since we are often crate trained and house broken with excellent Royal Manners.  Big SHOUT OUT to Sweet and Sassy Stewart who made it to the Adoption Event this weekend. Way to go big guy! I told you it wouldn’t be scary!

IMG_0506

And of course Tarzan who greeted PetCo shoppers for hours with his big pink tongue hanging out. You made this Princess proud!

Meet Max!

Last_Chance_At_Life_dog_adopt_Max

Good evening everyone and Happy Monday!  Now that we have our salutations out of the way – let me introduce myself.  I am Max!  That is my glamour photo above.  I know I look at bit like my friend Flynn Ryder but I am much more chill than that swashbuckling hero.   Oh, you may not have heard!  Ryder (AKA Wally now) – has flown the coop and found his FURever home!  Way to go buddy!  We miss you, but you have an awesome new home.  Here is a picture of Wally in his own bed surrounded by all his toys.  Doesn’t he look content?

61847871_10214434431669916_6731936215106322432_n

Back to me.   I was dropped off at a local shelter in their night box a while back.  I had an infected anal gland and my family just couldn’t afford the medical care.  I am very grateful they dropped me somewhere I would be safe.  I am all better now and ready to meet my FURever family.  I am 12 pounds and about a year old.  I am a very mature youngster, respectful and kind to children and other dogs.  I walk pretty well on a leash too – until I’ve had enough and then I politely sit down.  (My foster mom kept trying to get me to move along the other day and I just slid across the yard on my belly!  Hee Hee.)  Little legs mean I won’t be running any marathons.  But I enjoy walks with my Humans.

This past weekend I went to the Dog Days of Summer Adoption Event.  It was wonderful!  So, many LCAL volunteers were there to talk to adopters and take care of us pups.  Here is a picture of me and Amanda!  We are so lucky to have you guys!

IMG_0763

And here is a picture of me and my buddy Tarzan.  TZ as I like to call him was taking a break in his crate.  These adoption events are tiring!  I was flirting with all the people walking by – giving them my best pose.

IMG_0781

Oh!  Someone caught me snoozing!  (I am just resting my eyes as my grandmother use to say.)  Like I said – these events are tiring!

IMG_0761

Did you know that Max is Latin for Greatness?  Speaking of greatness, I want to take this opportunity to talk about some GREAT humans.  Our Foster Families!  Foster Families are a special part of our LCAL Village.  They open their homes to us so we can have a more normal life while waiting for our FURever family.  Here is a picture of me Chilling Out in my foster mom’s garden.

62006638_10214463298911579_2647573731387375616_n

And another picture of me in my comfy bed!  Hi Mom!

62111401_10214463828644822_582755671120805888_n

Fostering is such a generous gift to us because kennels can be STRESSFUL.  And some of us have a harder time kenneling than others.  My good friend Diva has been struggling lately with kennel stress and she would really benefit from a more stable and quiet environment.

Shout out to Diva!  You have been working so hard on your training and have made so much progress Goddess!  Your not even afraid of Cot or Car anymore!  Hang in there my friend!  (It is hard for me to see her feeling down.)

Diva 1

And then there is my buddy Sweet and Sassy Stewart!  He has been at LCAL the longest and has been watching patiently while all his friends have been adopted.  A foster home would help Stew be his best self.

IMG_0246

And then there is Kuma.  I know she is really wishing that the Marine Corps would just let her move into the barracks with Eesha.  No doubt about it.  Eesha is her Person.  But until then, a foster home would help her thrive.

58375283_10157289672346869_1972391102791024640_n

We have Great volunteers at LCAL and they come and take us hiking and on play dates.  Just so we can get out and socialize with other pups and humans.  It is awesome to see my friends Kuma, Stewart, Diva and Jerry be able to stretch their legs.  (They have much longer legs than me! Ha!)

The time and effort these volunteers put into us – makes kennel life better.   So, if fostering is too much of a commitment  – maybe becoming a dog handler would be your thing?  Maybe you are looking for a weekend hiking companion?  Maybe you have a pup that needs an occasional playmate?

If you think you might be interested in fostering an LCAL pup – please give us a call or submit an application which can be found on our website. You can make such a difference in our lives and LCAL provides all the training and support you need to be successful!

Before I go – big shout out to my foster mom Colleen! Thanks Mom for giving me a place to call home while I am waiting for my FURever family.

Happy Mother’s Day! Love, Harper’s Puppies

0508191049a_HDR

Good Morning and Happy Mother’s Day everyone!  We are Harper’s puppies and we are giving our mom a little rest today and taking over the blogging for LCAL!  (Aren’t we adorable.)  Before we tell you about our family it is time for some updates!

Albus went on his sleepover this week and looks like he found his Furever Family with LCAL alum Twinkle!  We are so happy for Albus!  This is Albus looking happy.

IMG_0626

Anson also went on a sleepover this week and it looks like he found his Furever Family too.  Anson is an LCAL favorite.  He has the looks and the laid back personality. We are going to miss you Anson!

Last_Chance_At_Life_dog_adopt_Anson

Now back to our Mother’s Day celebration at LCAL.  Mother’s Day all started back in 1908 when a lady named Anna sent 500 white carnations to her church for all the moms.  It just took off from there!   Moms do so much for us – they deserve a little pampering.  Here is our Mom when she went to the spa last month.

Mama

Moms are the best multi-taskers.   “When one needs a bathin’ the other needs a feedin'” and our Mom can both at the same time!  She is a wonder!  Just look!

0508191049d_HDR

Moms also need a lot of patience because sometimes us puppies can be too much.  There always seems to be one child that pushes the limits a bit more than the others.  This is a picture of Mom telling us to knock it off.  She needs a break!

0508191045d~2

But that is okay because one of our favorite things to do is snuggle up for nap time!  (Well, one of us is napping.)   The look on Mom’s face pretty much says it all.  Don’t ya think?

0502192045                 0502192058

But when we settle down in all our cuteness – Mom forgives us for being rowdy.  She knows after all that we are puppies.

0508191054

So here’s to moms everywhere today!  And if today is a sad day – we are sending you love and comfort.  Happy Mother’s Day MOMs!

0506191920a

Love, Harper’s Puppies!

Albus: Wise and Enchanting

Good morning! My name is Albus. And much like my namesake Albus Dumbledore, I am kind and affectionate. In fact, we look something alike, don’t you think?

IMG_0625                      Albus_Dumbledore

Before I tell you about myself, it is time for some updates! Puppy Rav has been adopted! Doesn’t he look happy?

57209115_2146377395453872_2350226153278537728_n

Also, Cody an LCAL alumni, has recovered nicely from his TPLO surgery and has been able to hang out in the yard off leash again. He is so happy to be able to play after months of being penned up!

IMG_0617

Now, back to me. I was left at a shelter one night in their drop box. LCAL thinks maybe it was because I had a tumor growing on my leg. It was a biggie. But I had surgery a week ago to remove the tumor and I feel so much better. I am still waiting to hear about whether I need more surgery. But right now, I am living for the moment. That really is the only way to live, don’t you agree?

IMG_0649

I am currently staying with my foster dad, Denis.  Do you recognize this pup?  Yes!  It is Tiger!  Denis adopted Tiger!  So I know I am in good hands.

58549652_2315114528552143_2925507202619801600_n

Denis tells me that I am such a good boy. I am potty trained and I get along with my foster dog brothers just fine. In fact, it is great to see Tiger looking so happy.  He is overjoyed with his new freedom to roam.  He has rabbits and squirrels to chase.  What a magical change from being in the Klink for a year.  He will be happy for the rest of his life with Denis and his family.   And I am thrilled to be able to join him in all the fun.

Although I am going through a little bit of a difficult time right now, I told Denis “I am not worried because I am with you. And you are one of my favorite Humans!” Dumbledore once told Harry Potter this and I find it to be very true. We are stronger together. Here is a picture of me with Denis. I have always wanted to be a lap dog.

IMG_0639IMG_0642

I am about 7 years old and Sweet and Sassy Stewart told me that I have been welcomed into the Old Guys Rule Association, even though I am a little young. (I think he just needed some new members since Henry and Tiger were adopted. Ha!)  Stewart has such a great personality!  I don’t understand why he hasn’t been adopted yet.  Hang in there gorgeous!  Your day is coming!

IMG_0246

Back to me.  I am a pretty low energy guy, wise and distinguished. Denis tells me I am a very easy house guest. At a recent adoption event, a tiny dog growled at me and I just walked away. I said “Little lady, I am a lover not a fighter” and I took refuge in Denis’ lap.

IMG_0648

Although it has been a tough month or so, I remember what Dumbledore once told Harry, “don’t dwell on things and forget to live.” These are very wise words that I take to heart. I put love and happiness into everything I do. My calm and devoted personality would be a wonderful addition to any home and I am patiently waiting for the right FURever family to find me. Until they do, I enjoy every moment of every day.

IMG_0626

JK Rowling once said “It is important to remember that we all have magic inside us.”  I think that magic is love.  And nothing beats the enchantment of providing a home for a rescue pup like me.  If you are a FURever family with love to give – come by and meet me!

Diva: It Takes a Village

Diva 1
Good Morning! Happy Monday Everybody! My name is Diva which is Latin for Goddess. That is my glamor photo above! Before I tell you about myself, I wanted to give you some wonderful news! Tiger the LCAL Ambassador and One Dog Welcome Committee found his FURever family! He went on a sleep over last week and his outgoing personality won them over. I am so happy for Tiger!  Doesn’t he look happy?

IMG_1034

With Henry and Tiger both adopted, Stewart is the only remaining fellow in the Old Guys Rule, Young Guys Drool organization. But he is confident the right family will come along for him. Here is an updated picture of Sweet and Sassy Stewart when he went hiking last week.

Stew

Now back to me! At one year old and 45 pounds I am quick and athletic. LCAL says I would make a great Frisbee dog because I have a set of SPRINGS on me. I was rescued as a stray and when I first arrived at LCAL I didn’t have the best manners. I liked to jump and lick faces and I could be a little mouthy at times. But my best friend Amanda has been working with me and I am doing so much better!

Pamela, our trainer extraordinaire, explained that I just needed a “new job.” I used to think my job was to jump and say “Hello Everyone!” But now I know better! I go to my “place” and I “watch” my Human for permission to get a treat, say hello, or whatever I am working on that day. This is a picture of me “watching” and waiting for my “Yes!” I am concentrating hard. And me a moment later – relaxed because I did so well!

Diva 2 Diva 3

When I look at Amanda and she tells me “Yes!” I am so happy! My tail wags a mile a minute. I am very eager to please and so smart! This is me taking a little peak at my reflection in the window. Who is that gorgeous goddess? Me!

Diva 4

Sometimes Pamela and Amanda do extra training with me during the week and even Jen comes by to work with me! It takes a village to raise a Diva that is for sure!!

Diva 7
Hey interview lady! Are you paying attention? Look over here at me! Are you getting all of this down?

All this hard work is paying off! Last week, Amanda took me on a wonderful walk to the park. I sniffed everything and was curious about all the Humans! But I kept my cool and didn’t try to pull Amanda – even when a couple of kids on skateboards whizzed by us! Yea for me!

Diva 8
I used to be afraid of many things, my place cot, the car, and strange situations. But now I am adapting and trusting so much more. I love my Saturday morning training with Amanda, Pamela and all the other dog families! It makes me feel part of a whole dog-loving community.

Diva 6

And speaking of community, everyone at LCAL works very hard to help us find our FURever Families. Nicci (Stewart’s Bestie) and Leyla take amazing pictures of us and they join a whole bunch of volunteers who walk and take care of us. Amanda is my best friend but she also fosters Harper and her puppies! Just this past weekend Amanda and Leyla treated Harper to a spa day! Doesn’t every mom deserves a spa day?

Mama

And here is one of my favorite pictures of Eesha and Kuma!  Eesha is Kuma’s BFF and last month she took Kuma on a wonderful hike with the Marines.  Doesn’t Kuma look happy?!

58375283_10157289672346869_1972391102791024640_n
Our network of foster parents ensures that some of us have a quiet stable place to live while we are waiting for our FURever Family. And nothing is better than when fosters fall in love with us and decide to KEEP us! Some people call this a “failed foster.” Ha! It is anything BUT failed when we find our FURever Family. Henry the Love Bug knows this first hand!!  Here’s a great shot of Henry with his stuffy.  We miss you big guy!

IMG_0539

There are also adoption events, pack walks, and donations! Something is always happening around here.   Here’s Flynn Rider with Pam at Petco!

IMG_0437

Well, that’s about it for me and My Village. If you are looking for a little Diva who is bound to make a wonderful companion and provide a lot of fun along the way, stop in and say Hello! You might be that lucky Human.
