It's a tuff job

... but someone's gotta do it.

We found a great way to test the nerve of new volunteer Matt today: We tossed a pack of Vagisil wipes his way and asked him to swipe down a new puppy family. (They all have a mild case of ringworm). He got right to work without skipping a beat - A good sign, eh?

Here he is with Ana Poe, hard at work. Phew! The demands of this job can be mind-boggling.



Three 7-8 week old pups nearly fell through the cracks of a local shelter, but a great group of ladies who call themselves the Sacramento Area Canine Rescue Networkers waved a flag for them and now they're safe. Mom and her babes are just getting settled in and the pups are getting their first experience with grass, wind, toys and people. It's all good!







We look forward to updating as these cuties get caught up on what they've been missing and find their place in the world.
