Say hello to our new little friend

This is Duffy. He is our foster dog. We decided to become volunteers for the Human Animal Rescue Team (HART). They are a not-for-profit organization that rescues stray, abondoned, and abused animals in Alberta. Because they are not-for-profit, they cannot afford a place to house all the animals so in order to save animals they need people to volunteer their homes as foster parents. No homes/volunteers = no saved dogs. The more homes = more saved dogs.

Duffy and his 4 other brothers and sisters were found on a dump on a Northern Native Reserve. Their Mommy was shot in the head by some mean person so these poor guys at 6 weeks, were left alone. That is were we stepped in. Duffy (a golden retriever, husky mix) joined our household a week ago and we are just LOVING this boy. He is such a kind and sweet tempered dog. And not to mention so stinkin cute! He and Sadie absolutely love eachother. They don't stop playing (which means a lot of missed sleep for us!).

The bittersweet part is that hopefully someone will adopt this little guy and give him a permanent and loving home. I am going to bawl and probably be depressed for a week, but I will be happy when that day comes cause I will know that we helped him find a better life.

Anywho, here are some pics of Duffy - aka Duf, Duffers, and Duf Puf.
