AZ RESCUE, an organization I wrote about a couple of times recently, hosted their annual Adopter’s Picnic and Reunion yesterday. Hubby and I went because we are Adopter’s of the feisty and sweet King Lukas.
Thanks to Jennifer Berry and all the volunteers for hosting such a great day! It was a grand time reuniting with Lukas’s foster parents, and watching The Big L strut his stuff in his kingly robes.
Below are photos from the day:

God made Adam, then Eve
for obvious reasons
and hoped they would love, honor, comfort each other
Seeing it would likely not last forever,
given Adam’s appetite for conquest,
and Eve’s hunger to converse,
God made Dog.
God gave Dog
the ability to love without speech
and delight in chasing things
without the need to catch or accumulate.
God gave Dog too
a fiercely loyal heart,
a quiet respect for human tears,
and an inclination to sleep curled up
at the foot of the bed.
We all know,
that Adam and Eve
deceived each other,
and so were banished from the Garden.
But remember, and give thanks:
because God is compassionate,
he sent Dog with them.
