Ha--Donna, I'm LOVING the Vanessa pics and story! They have made my day. If I didn't already have a senior in residence I'd be driving up there right now!!!!

How wonderful to see her swimming and running around and enjoy life to it's absolute max. Wow, that you guys gave her this chance!

"That was quite the treck downhill for a swim, guys."





"Oh, but was it WORTH it!"





"Not for ME, it wasn't."






"Duke, you KNEW that beach was very clammy and you lead me there, ANYWAY!"





"Try this part of the beach, Nessa, it's a little bit better."





"This is beautiful guys."






"Although unlike Matsi, I prefer to stay closer to shore."





"And take my breaks as I need them."





"But I'll be back after I catch my breath in a bit."





"Matsi, you look a bit weary yourself, how 'bout you let me carry that ball for you?"





"I heard there's a trust issue with you, Duke."






"Matsi, come on, be a better sharer with your big bro', Dukie."






"I'm not going to spend the rest of my afternoon being ballless because you are too CLUELESS sometimes!"






"Do you guys know how many times my mom has had to replace my kong ball because Duke MISPLACED it?"





"See ya."





"Ok, Duke, this is your last chance. If you can catch the ball, you can KEEP it."






"Ooooops, sorry Duke."






"Ness, you look like a **** SEAL there in the water, back off!"





"Whaaaaaaa!"




"Keep your head up, Ness, he's just jealous because he STILL doesn't have the ball."





"Say WHaaaat?"

"Did you hear that I can climb UP the stairs..."





"And DOWN the stairs..."





"And UP the stairs again...."





"And DOWN the stairs again, ALL BY MYSELF?!!"






"Mom says I have the most beautiful profile now that I can stand on my own."





"And cries as she watches me frolic at the edge of the sea."





"She says most homeless dogs do not get second chances at a new life."




"Never mind expensive surgeries that will help them walk again."





"I'm truly blessed to have so many people who cared enough about me to help me turn my life around."





"But there is still that one thing missing in my life."





"Do I DARE hope for more than I've already been given?"






"That ONE special FAMILY to call my own?"




"I may not be the cute little puppy that most people are searching for."





"But don't you think I'm just as CUTE as any puppy you've ever laid eyes on?!"





"A very loyal, calm friend is what you can expect from me. I just want to BE with you."







"Well, as I've heard so many times over, the past few months, 'just keep the faith, Vanessa'."





"Just keep the FAITH."

I really thought I was going to get through these pictures without crying. But, of course not... This got to me first: "Do I DARE hope for more than I've already been given?" And then that last picture... It is so incredibly beautiful and moving. Dear Millie will always be with us, as will all the others we've lost...

So thankful that Vanessa is recovering well and can enjoy her life again. She must have been in terrible pain. Many thanks to you Donna and to GSRNE and all the angels out there who funded Nessa's surgery.

What she said! I love your captions, they had me laughing at the antics of the dogs. LOVE the huge toungue hanging from Duke? That was too cute. Poor Matsi always having Duke lose her kongs
I hope that you can find Nessa a forever home, she deserves to much love

I love your post and thanks so much for our efforts.

I have never signed on to this speific topic, but do rescue. I always figured once adopted, placed in good homes, and home inspected it is time to move on.

But the pics and follow up are wonderful, especially with the older shepherds.

thanks
