Friday Fix (2/22/2013) - Bed

By Christy Hess

It is vacation time at Colorado Puppy Rescue. We have not brought in new puppies for two weeks now. I am having serious withdraws!

Volunteering helps me in so many ways. Thursdays are so important to me. Not only do I get to see new cuddly puppies come in, starting their road to a better future, but I also get to take a deep breath and relax. I get to put my work aside for a while and enjoy holding a puppy or have a great time with the other volunteers. This week is just showing me how much I really do need that volunteer time. I am looking forward to next Thursday already.

Without puppy pictures, I have again looked to another source of pictures. My new favorite website: Fun ideas!
