Best Shot Monday: Meet Morning Glory

Morning Glory_A1049840

I get to spend a good bit of time working from home in Jacksonville this summer, so that means I'm able to get back into my "home" shelter for photos! I spent this morning with the pups at Jacksonville's Animal Care and Protective Services. It was a bit of a challenging day since they are replacing the air handlers at the shelter. That meant that each back yard enclosure door that exits each run was largely blocked with a large portable a/c unit, with its exhaust vent propping the door open. The dogs and I had quite an adventure making it around that for each exit and entry back into the run!

Morning Glory here was a lot of fun. This girl has been at the shelter since early February, nearly six months. Can you believe it? She can't; that's why she's sticking her tongue out at you. She's a Lab mix, about six years old, chock full of personality. She's available for adoption at ACPS, 2020 Forest Street, Jacksonville.

2016 Documented Life Project: December

December-1

Whoo hoo! I've finally made it to the last month of my 2016 Documented Life Project! And I'm not quite six months late! :-) I'll skip the narrative this time and just share with you how much I've enjoyed this project the past few years. I've done something a little different each year, and while 2017 is proving to be pretty similar to 2016 (with the goal of using up just what I have ... and apparently I have way too much to use up), I'm keeping it up. The only thing I'm finding is that I really don't care for the actual "calendar page" parts. I think I'd just rather just do a simple background with some quick highlights of the week instead of following that restrictive grid format. The second half of 2017 may see that. Thanks for sticking with me through this project! Scroll to the bottom of the post for links to the full project!

Best Shot Monday: Meet Raisin

Raisin_A169726

How about a Best Shot Monday on a Wednesday? It's summer time! Nothing is on schedule! I spent yesterday afternoon at the shelter in Tallahassee hanging out with sweet pups like Raisin. This little gal is so much fun. She runs, runs, run, and then just stops right next to you ... and I mean right next to you. The only way I was able to get a good photo of her for the website was with her looking directly up at me like this. But I love the shot!

Raisin is available for adoption at the City of Tallahassee Animal Service Center.  Adopt, don't shop!  There are thousands of wonderful pets waiting on you in your local animal shelters.  And they truly know they are rescued...and they often rescue you in the process.

Best Shot Monday: Meet Lexi

Lexi

Meet, Lexi! I photographed this sweet girl about a month ago, and I'm so surprised she hasn't been snatched up yet! She's a good size, not too big, not too small, walks well on her leash, loves to play fetch, and is just an all around great dog. She's been in the shelter for about six weeks now. I always wonder why dogs like Lexi sit there waiting for a while. Her kennel presentation is pretty good, and she's obviously adorable. I mean, seriously! Look at that face! She has a little bit of hair loss on her chest, but that's likely just due to kennel stress. Once she's in a good home, that'll grow back in nicely.

Give shelter dogs a chance, everyone! You'll find that they rescue you in the long run. Lexi is available for adoption at the City of Tallahassee Animal Service Center.
