Adopt a Senior Pet Month

 November is *Adopt a Senior Pet Month* And Lab Rescue is being bombarded with senior dogs right now, and they aren't able to take them all. So, to help make room for another senior dog that needs a place to go, I decided to adopt our "hospice foster girl Sheeba."  

At more than 14 years old, and diagnosed with cancer in the spring, I know I'll never know Sheeba as a vibrant and healthy Lab. But none of that matters, that's not why we love her. We love her for who she is in this moment, which is a sweet, gentle, easy going, but stubborn and independent girl that barks to let me know she wants her dinner on time and loves to sleep on the bed.

  8. How lucky Sheeba is to be one of the family, Kim. We know she will have the best care and so much love.
    Sheeba is so much like my Lab Inca, in looks and temperament, that they could be twins!

  15. Will you give Sheba an extra hug and kiss for me. She looks so sweet. Kim, you have a heart of gold. Thank you. I don't understand why there would be so many senior dogs needing to be rescued. Do people just give the up when they get old? That's when they need us the most.

  16. Sheeba is so lucky to be with you. Thank you for giving her such a safe and cozy place to be for the final chapter of her life.

  17. What a kind heart you have. Sheeba is a lucky girl, finally. What a gift to her, and now the rescue can "save one more." Why people don't want older dogs is unknowable to me. They are so good and appreciative.

  21. Oh hurray and hurray for beautiful Sheba! What a marvelous gesture to make, Kim. This has given me a much-needed smile. I notice that Gerry seems to keep popping up in photos cuddled with a canine friend. More smiles.
