SAINTS can be a busy crazy and loud place; especially during the day when there are lots of people and lots of “exciting” things (well the saints think any 2-legger moving is exciting) but there are also quiet and peaceful moments–usually in the afternoon and evening after everyone has gone home.

LOUD because of dogs that have a lot to say

Bambi 2 and Esther both say: “Did you feed us already? Really we don’t remember please feed us again!”

Molly always has a lot to say

Here Molly says: “Hey, you I am old and dying give me a cookie!

also loud because of new arrival of dogs

Bibi is barking at the new dogs Noel and Shane

Bibi says: “Hey you, look here who are you? Why are you here? Hey stop that and come over here”

Noel is quiet … thinking … (holy shit this place is nuts!)

Shane is quiet too (the new ones usually are at first)

BUSY

There are LOTS of bodies here and they all congregate in the kitchen to follow their human friends with the food around it because more like a doggy gauntlet …

But as I said, in the afternoon as the volunteer and staff leave and the excitement is dying down, the animals had their cuddles, and treats, and exercise and content and sleepy. SAINTS is quiet and calm (especially is Pheobe is asleep!)

Huh?

So yes there are peaks and valleys even at SAINTS. There are times if the day, week or year that are crazier than others. But at the end of the day the animals here are happy, well cared for, safe, and loved. Thanks to the staff, volunteers and donors.

Here are the happy faces from Saturday

Baby chicks: Camilla, Ginger, and Henny Penny (or is it Henny Jenny? or Jenny Penny … eek?)
