A Kiss from Winter (now Rider)

We had a wonderful day at Barcley Dog Parkin DeLand.  I found that the park would be perfect for our future reunions.

What made me happy is that Winter remembered me; but it’s only been one week since I last saw him!  What I noticed is that all of our dogs are “home”.

Winter, Lilly, Jaffe, and the Cowboys Doc Holiday and Wyatt Earp.  It’s a real thrill to see our rescued dogs bonded with their owners.  I was impressed with Winter’s self-esteem.  He traveled far from us, but staying close to the dogs he knew, like China and Lady Di.  Dale raised his hand up in the air, and Winter bolted to his side.

Doc and Wyatt


Watching Lilly and Abel interact; it was as if those two have been together forever, and the way she is with Dusty, it’s obvious that’s her man!  There is no manual to matching dogs with up with the right owners; no rules, no secret code.  It’s hard to explain but there was joy in their eyes, you know?  

If you remember Doc Holiday and Wyatt Earp, you’ll remember there was no joy, no life in their eyes whatsoever.  

our favorite photo of the day



Jaffe never changes; he’s always polite, obedient, and focused on his people!

One thing I only appreciate in photographs is how confident my daughter, Sarah, is when she’s with the dogs, especially her dog, China.  I’ve never seen a dog and a child so bonded.

You can see all of our photos on Facebook.  Special thanks to Brittney Myers for her fantastic work with her camera!  At the end of the day we accepted the fact that our white dogs were covered in mud, and happy faces!

Winter and China showing the art of communication!

Our day in a nutshell!
