My book blog now has its own home. Please visit me at LYNNE'S BOOK REVIEWS. Of course you're more than welcome to see what's going on in my personal life, but if you want to talk books, that's where I'll be!

Month in Pictures ~ June

Not much happened in June

Stray Rescue Enrichment Meetings

An hour before the above meeting, Randy rescued this skinny mom and pups in the 111 degree weather. Three of the babies died but these six were saved. The mom is soooo friendly.
 New Enrichment Dog

My new enrichment dog's name is Xylaphone, so named because you can see his ribs. I took him to PetCo since it was too hot to do anything outside. Shopping wore him out, so he laid down in the middle of the store.  He's sweet and easy going and is 5 years old. I hope he gets fostered or adopted quickly. He'd be such an easy dog.

Need to fatten him up!  
Bedroom addition continues
