Photo Dump–August

I am finally caught up with photo dumps!  Sammy was a little sick at the beginning of the month.  Sammy spent the morning chilling on the couch watching tv:

Abby was one of Becca’s sweet rescue dogs she had while she was there.  She was placed not long after we left.  Sadly, she was involved in an crazy accident and lost her life.  She was very timid but once she warmed up to you she was so sweet!!
