New Job

My newest job is a part-time kennel helper at Delaware Valley Golden Retriever Rescue (DVGRR). My family currently has three dogs we adopted from there and if anyone in the PA/NJ/NY area is looking for a Golden, look no further. This organization is fantastic at taking care of the dogs and making a great match!

Anyway, now I'm working this job twice a week, the barn 4-5 days a week, and Target 1-2 nights. It's getting a little crazy! Plus it's been tough these last few days because, between this and the barn, I've been spending the majority of my days outside and the temps have been in the single digits. It's not a glamorous job by any means, taking care of so many dogs and all that poop/pee/drool/hair/food/etc. However, the fact that I get to spend at least part of the day seeing things like this make each day worthwhile:

Lou Lou, Goldie and Duke, ex puppy mill dogs, happily wrestling in the snow
Zoey content just to have someone to snuggle with

Of course, it doesn't get much better than being told you have to go play with the puppies every day so they become socialized and used to people (mom was feral and delivered these two puppies after being rescued and brought to PA):

  1. What a fun job! You are making a difference that is great! I'm jealous I love target- do ya get a discount? ; )

    1. Yes I do, it's pretty nice :) 10% may not sound like a ton but it does help!

  2. You are one busy lady. Puppy snuggling doesn't sound too tough, though :)
