I have been counting all my blessings that it has been a cooler summer! It has literally kept BHRR's Porridge alive. Just this past weekend, we hosted our latest GD & Honorary GD "GIANT AT HEART' Walk/Hike and, who would have thought that BHRR's Porridge could also attend! I thought for sure that March would have been his last one.

Miracle dog!!! Absolutely a miracle dog! His Vet Team including specialists are mind bloggled. 🙂 YAY! He continues to go in for regular check-ups plus bloodwork.

I am not trying to look ahead too far for him, yet, I am sincerely hoping that he shall still be with us for our upcoming ANNUAL 'BHRR DINE WITH THE DOGS' Event at the end of September. So many, are coming in from out of town and province, and, I know that would want to be able to pass along in person their own best wishes plus say any 'good-byes' for, we will have to then start worrying about the extreme cold for him. This boy is now almost 6.5 years of age and, he was not even given 18 months to live when I first rescued him as a wee babe that fit into the palm of my hands.

Here are two photo's from the walk/hike on Sunday. If anyone wishes to join our over 260 member distribution walk/hike list, please do EMAIL. ONLY Responsible dog owners are permitted.
