rescued...



quirky . relaxed . humorous . patient . lovable . compassionate . curious
are words that these two pets redefine for me
at times when it is most needed

Wonderful ELK, thanks for bringing these creatures to the forefront this Friday.

Elk, I'm having a canvas contest, please consider submitting a photo! I would love to see yours...

Tracy said...

LOVE these photos of your Sam & Casey, Elk... That last photos especially! Where they looking up for treats? ;o) It's been crazy-busy here, else I'd have entered our Charlie in this fun event. Thanks for the fun! Happy Weekend ((HUGS))

Wonderful idea. Here are my three nearest and dearest furry ones.

Traci said...

I'm convinced rescues are the best animals EVER! It's like they know you saved them and repay you on a daily basis with more love than we could imagine!
Ozzy and Ella will be joining Sam & Casey shortly!

Oh, what a wonderful idea! I have six (yes, SIX!) cats and a dog, which makes me officially a crazy cat lady. The first two cats I rescued from the pound, the other four have come to us over the years, showing up in our yard, the last two just this Spring. So far, we have made room for them all, although I think now we are at our limit. :)
As part of my "spreading some sunshine" post today, I posted a photo of the cat that came to us half-dead, injured, starving, yet so incredibly gentle. Now he is beautiful.

P.S. I love your photos, the belly-up kitty made me laugh!

beth said...

OH they are so cute!!

suzyQ said...

They are so cute! The dog looks just like my golden retriever, which are, in my opinion, the best dogs!

m. heart said...

Soooo sweet these two lovely friends of yours.

Candace said...

They're adorable and they match. The yawning kitty is classic. I'm heading out right now for the day, not sure I can participate...but too cute!

For some reason, I can't post from Wordpress to your and some other blogger sites the last couple days. Hope it corrects itself.

Traci said...

Finally up and running!

Kellee said...

I really planned on it, but damn if the dog wouldn't cooperate! :)

This is so much fun, though. I'm definitely in next time! :)

kath said...

It's a very good thing they rescued you ;-)
Hi Sam!!!! xo on your nose and a scritch to kitty's ears.
Margie wrote about her Charlie today.

Betsy said...

I smiled at this, thinking redheads really do run in the family over at ELK's. haha.

What a sweet looking duo! Don't you just adore the unconditional love of a pet? We humans should take a lesson!

KimSetser said...

Sweet photos. I am sharing my Sophie (mini-schnauzer) at uncommonsense.blogspot.com
Found you via Patty at findingserendipity.com

Jennifer Richardson said...

The springs of my heart just unwound as I wandered through your blog this afternoon. Restful. Refreshing. Real.

I find it hard to choose just a few words....often sprinkle them freely like seed I'm scattering, just hoping some will take root and grow.
I love the way you plant yours.
Hope you rub off on me:)

So glad to have found this loveliness.
-Jennifer
