Dog's Breakfast Fundraiser

I took Moose to a fundraiser event for New Hope Dog Rescue yesterday afternoon. It's a crazy afternoon as it's an ice cream eating contest and while I didn't actually watch the competition, I understand there were 5 guys, each eating some crazy amount of ice cream to see who could do so the fastest. I believe it entails like 14 scoops of ice cream, whipped cream and a cherry on top.

I was a bit busy while they were eating. You see, a gal had applied to meet a number of our puppies and had met Moose's brother James on Friday. She liked him, but his foster mama mentioned how much cuddlier Moose is than James, and she wanted to meet him.  So, while guys were making themselves sick on ice cream, Moose was worming his way into the heart of she who is likely going to be his new mama!  She wanted the night to think about which she wanted, but I suspect Moose will be packing his bags and moving out tomorrow. And, if not, that's ok too- I have come to love his cuddles on the couch and Murph has enjoyed having a playmate.  So, I'll keep you posted!

Anyway, some shots from the day of Moose, asking nicely for doggy biscuits....



He's perfected THE LOOK.  You know... THE LOOK that says "I'm here, I'm quiet and just sitting here, and I'm WAITING for that doggy biscuits!!"


Moose with one of our Special Girls, Robin.  We brought her and her sister Ducky in from a shelter in NorthWestern Saskatchewan. Once she arrived, we realized that she was in bad shape; she has severe hip dysplasia on both sides and immediately underwent bilateral hip surgeries. Moose loved her and she was content to lie on her bed, and get biscuits for being such a lovely girl!


All in all, it was a great afternoon and I'll keep you all posted on what happens with the Moose Man!

My Sadie says she would like to enter that contest - she figures she could get through 14 scoops of icecream pretty darn quick. She's not so sure about the cherry on top though - blech!(says she).
Here's hoping Moose found his forever home...or does so soon.

Hope that Moose will be in his forever home soon! He's just too cute, though I bet Murphy will miss him.

Robin is such a cutie too. Horrible to hear she has hip dysplasia. :(
