Happy Memorial Day!

Beautiful day to get the deck in order after the long winter. That is why the table is filled with cleaning stuff and tools. Mom is such a dog magnet.

Happy Easter from Rescue Buddy Boarding!

We have quite a group here to celebrate the season.

Our lovely Pet Haven foster dog Duchess is still looking for her forever home.

Curly,a 7 year old cocker mix, is the newest Pet Haven foster dog.  He just arrived yesterday from Red Lake Rosie's. Once he has been to the vet and the spa he will be ready for adoption.

Simon came all the way up from Rochester to spend Easter weekend with us.

Buddy rounds out the herd for today. He wants to know where the ham went.

Happy Easter to all!!

Spring Has Sprung!!

Gone are the days of wearing boots inside because of Buddy's snowball feet.

Gone are the snow piles that were so fun for the dogs to play in.

Gone are our big heavy coats.

Here's to the days ahead of basking in the sun on the puppy porch! Ahhhhh

The Addiction Called Pinterest

I know I am late to the Pinterest party but I am finally here full force. Surprisingly I am finding way too much inspiration. My head is spinning with creative ideas. Unfortunately it is quite the time suck. So now it is time for retraining myself to step away from the computer and start creating.  

I am an artist after all-or was in a former life-with skills already learned and supplies already at hand. Beadwork was my passion for over 12 years. However life is too short to spend one hour to create one inch of work. This piece, "Queen Mary Cometh" took over 9 months to complete. 

It is exciting to see what will spark the passion today. Look at these dogs made out of newspaper by Vivaterra. I always said I would be a paper maker in my next life. Why not now! It is never to late to start something new!


The plan is to use my dog training tricks to keep me working and off of the furniture. And off of the computer. By simply placing a laundry basket on my computer chair it will be more difficult to sit down and tune into the box. This makes me laugh because I bet it will be much harder to retrain this human than it was to train any of my past 60 foster dogs. Wish me luck!

Lovely Duchess

Duchess is our Pet Haven foster dog. Our best guess at her breed mix is Rigdeback/shep.

At around 2 years old she is still playful but very calm in the house. Yes this girl can relax.

After a slow intro, Duchess is great with other dogs. Here is her gal pal Rosanne, also a Pet Haven foster dog.

She even puts up with the resident springer Buddy using her as a chair.

Duchess came into rescue because her foot was infected with porcupine quills. She had two surgeries to remove two toes on her back foot, spent three months in a cone and.....

even wore stylish footwear to protect her foot during the long healing process.

Kind of funny looking, but her foot is totally healed now and she is ready to roll.

Ready to roll right into a forever home. If you are interested in Duchess here for more info.

Happy 9th Birthday Buddy!


Wow 9 years old and look how good you look. Still able to run and play with the fastest. Just for a shorter time. I know the feeling.

You have shared your home with 59 foster dogs and as many that revisit our home while their parents are away.

Coziest lap dog ever!

 Little did we know,  when we brought you home 8 1/2 years ago, what a new life would unfold for our  family. What a daily source of joy you are. Every experience seems new and exciting. Happy birthday my boy. Love you forever! Okay let's go play ball.
