Arrival Story:
Sunny was found wandering a rural road in Placerville, starved and covered with fleas, his age was estimated to be 12 or 13 years old. He spent a couple of weeks in the shelter there but his people never came for him. He was called "Sugar" by the shelter workers there because he was so sweet. When his time was up and no one had claimed him or adopted him, luckily for him he was transfered to South Lake Tahoe Animal Shelter where he captured the heart of a shelter worker. She took him home, cleaned him up, and then contacted Kim at Nor Cal Aussie rescue. He was taken to their sanctuary in Grass Valley where he spent 2 months being loved and cared for while he was waiting for his forever home. I saw his picture on their website and just could not resist his adoreable face. I stopped and met him and knew he had to come home with me. Sunny has been with me for over three years now and he is just the sweetest boy. He is a true "velcro" Aussie. He may have a couple "of hitches in his get-a-long" and he is now blind, but this boy is happy and has plenty of love to give. He is now on arthritis medications and enjoys a walk at the beach every day. I must give kudos to his dog brother Wesley for being so accepting of him as Wesley has been an "only child" for 8 years. Thank you Nor Cal Aussie Rescue for making sure this precious boy was given the chance to find a forever home. If you are looking for an Aussie to adopt or would just like to financially help this great organization, please visit their website. ( Please tell them Sunny sent you!

Please consider adopting an older pet . . . . ."One by one, they pass my cage . . . too old, too worn, too broken, no way. Way past his time, he can't run and play. Then they shake their heads slowly and go on their way. A little old man, arthritic and sore. It seems I am not wanted anymore. I once had a home, I once had a bed, a place that was warm, and where I was fed. Now my muzzle is grey, and my eyes slowly fail. Who wants a dog so old and frail? My family decided I didn't belong, I got in their way, my attitude was wrong. Whatever excuse they made in their head, can't justify how they left me for dead. Now I sit in this cage, where day after day, the younger dogs get adopted away. When I had almost come to the end of my rope, you saw my face and I finally had hope. You saw thru the grey and the legs bent with age, and felt I still had life beyond this cage. You took me home, gave me food and a bed, and shared your own pillow with my poor tired head. We snuggle and play and you talk to me low, you talk to me dearly, you want me to know. I may have lived most of my life with another, but you outshine them with a love so much stronger. I may be with you for a week or for years, we will share many smiles, you will no doubt shed tears. And when the time comes that God deems I must leave, I know you will cry and your heart, it will grieve. And when I arrive at the Bridge, all brand new, my thoughts and my heart will still be with you. And I will brag to all who will hear, of the person who made my last days so dear." Written by Leslie Whalen, in honor of her dog, Tray, and all senior dogs who await a new home and deserve a second chance at life and happiness.

It was two years ago today that you made your journey to the Bridge. Not a day goes by that I don't think of you. As your brother Wesley just recently joined you at the Bridge, it gave me great comfort to know that you would be there waiting for him and he would not be alone. Thank you for all the love you always showed to me and Wesley. How lucky we both were to have you in our life. With my love always . . .

It has been one year ago today that I had to help you make your journey to the Bridge. Not a day goes by that I don't think of you, miss seeing your sweet face. Though you were only with me for four years and I adopted you at 13 years, I could have never loved you more.
Missing you my sweet Sunny . . .

When Mom first adopted me 4 years ago today, everyone told her that at my then age (estimated 13 years), that I would probably only be with her for a year or two because of my poor condition. But with lots of love and good care, I was with my Mom for almost 4 years! I know she is really thinking of me today and I want to thank all my Dogster friends that have stopped by and helped us celebrate today. I know my family especially misses me today . . .
Love from Sunny
