How did I ever miss National Pet Day ?  Well, there were a  couple other things on my plate this week…

Every day is pet day for us anyway as our ever companionable rescue dog Balto is always around for a pet / to give us a lick. This guy still can’t control his “licker”…

Balto’s first year anniversary with us is rapidly approaching as March was when we picked him up from his last foster homes in Beloit. He had been rescued from Houston, Texas. His fear of leaving home on his own has dissipated somewhat as he has begun to explore the 44 acres this winter looking for deer carcass. Just this week he dragged another one back to the house. Thank goodness he doesn’t want to bring them in…

But we discovered Balto loves snow and making doggie snow angels! He might have liked the air conditioning in Texas but he loves lying and rolling in the snow too…

Welcome to Wisconsin Winters Balto. Snow is one thing we can guarantee  you living here.


He also has been enjoying occasional doggie daycare at Pet Me, Scratch Me when we have long hospital days. His demeanor makes him a very popular guy with both staff and other doggies.


Do share you pet pics!  Send them this way and they’ll be included.
