My sweet girl proudly handed over the baggie full of cash, but unfortunately, you have to be a volunteer to take the dogs out. So we signed up! She was a bit disappointed that we couldn't go for a walk that day, but we still spent time with some of the animals. She spent a little time with this doggie.
But it was the bunnies that one both our hearts. This adorable little guy was only 6 months old and very cuddly. He was our favourite and for $15.00 we could have taken him home. Fortunately for my marriage (& my furniture & electrical wiring), reason kicked in and I realized the insanity of bringing a helpless little bunny into a house with two cats.
He looks sweet & innocent but I think he was giving us the evil eye, or hypnotizing us or something. I kept hearing "take me home, take me home". It was hard to leave him behind.
This is a little chinchilla who also tried to charm us. Pretty soft fur, but he couldn't turn us away from the bunnies.
Lizzie & I will be going back to the SPCA this Wednesday for our orientation & then will be volunteering to work with the animals at least one day a week. I can't wait.
Speaking of bunnies, has anyone ever read Bunnicula?
If not, go to the library and pick up a copy. It's a wonderful children's story of a detective team consisting of a dog & a cat with a lot of attitude trying to solve the mystery of their new family pet....a rabbit whom they suspect could also be a vampire! Lizzie and I have read the book several times as well as the other James Howe books.
