Flower Pup Reunion!

I'm so excited! I know it's six months away, but one of Payton's blood sisters Mommy wants to get together for a flower pup reunion on their 2nd birthday (July 6th). If you have been with our blog since the beginning you know that Payton was rescued from Safe Harbor Lab Rescue and she was one of 5 female pups that were all named after flowers, Payton was Violet (we kept that as her middle name). I wanted to get all the flower pups together last Summer but didn't get on it in time. I am just giddy at the prospect of seeing Payton with her blood sisters. We were contacted by the flower pups adoption coordinator, Marie. She is the special lady that devotes her spare time, after her 80 hour a week job, to volunteer with rescue dogs. She is no longer with safe harbor, but is now involved in volunteering for a large dog rescue. She adopted a gorgeous female black lab before she left safe harbor and I am hoping Marie and Shiloh will attend the reunion.



By the way... one of the 22 yellow labs that starred in Marley and Me, Brodie, is a safe harbor alum. We have not seen the movie yet. I went through alot of tissue when I read the book and Mark is worried I will embarrass him by crying uncontrolably in the theater. Might just have to wait till the DVD and I can sob in the privacy of my own home.

Peace,
Jamie

I got my Moose from Lab rescue of Florida and also volunteer for them and one of our adoptees was also in the movie! Hope you get to your reunion. I would love to meet Moose's littermates but no clue where they are...Wonder if they will recognize each other...

That sounds like it would be so much fun! I got my Parker guy at a small breeder in the country north of Qc City, it is about a 3 hr drive but she kept Parker's sister Toscane and it was Parker's favorite littermate, I wanted to take him back there last summer - but that was when he's Knee probs began. I promised him a trip there b4 this coming fall! I too wonder if they recognize one another, for Parker it would be 4 yrs already.

wait until it comes out on video and Mark isn't home one night. Then close all the blinds, turn off all the lights, and grab a large box of tissues. You'll need them.
