I spent the past two Fridays working at Panhandle Animal Shelter and want to let all our readers know what a wonderful experience it was. The shelter is extremely clean and well organized. I met some great folks who are dedicated to dogs in need. Pat, in the office, is a very friendly lady who loves dogs as much as I do. Brian Welch, the Kennel Technician, hunts grouse and ducks with his Pointing Lab. We obviously hit it off immediately.

Brian had a little talk with Ian and they came to an understanding.
|It's all about love.|

If you should choose to adopt a dog, there is a small fee which covers the costs of neutering and vaccinations. The cost is insignificant, compared to the love one receives in return from a rescued dog. If you can't adopt a dog you can always stop by your local shelter and take a dog for a walk. I walked four dogs each visit. The walks were a mile long, so I got in four miles myself which is good for my heart condition and high blood sugar, A win win deal for both me and the dogs.
Stop by your local shelter and lend a hand. I mopped the floor and washed windows on my first visit. (Please do not tell Karen I am capable of such tasks. She might expect me to do this at home!) If you have skills as a carpenter or electrician make yourself available. Or just stop by to give a dog a walk or a hug. It will do you heart good in more ways than one.
