Lola came to us through a Lab rescue site on the internet. She was lonely while languishing in her former owner's backyard for over 4 years and was ready for a change in her life! We brought her indoors, settled her into her new dog bed, took her to the dog park, the beach and even on a 9 day road trip! She is in training to become a service dog for the BARK program in our local schools. Elementary school students will have the opportunity to read to her, have a photo taken with her and be awarded a certificate for their effort. She has come full circle from her solitary beginning to a well loved pet and has taught me many lessons. Eat with gusto and enthusiasm, Run, romp, and play daily, Thrive on attention and let people touch you, Don't hold grudges, Live with a sense of purpose and Celebrate every day. I am not sure who rescued who to be honest!
