I ended up picking the only rainy day to visit Orphans of the Storm®, so I only have one new pooch to write about this week. But that also means I got to spend some time drying off and warming up with the cats in the cat room! Nothing is quite as cozy as having two (or more) cats in your lap simultaneously.
Old Red the six-year-old Redbone Coonhound mix didn’t mind the rain at all. Old Red’s personality couldn’t be any more Hound-like. He loves being outside and he loves following his nose. When we were in the off-leash run, he kept putting his paws up on the side of the fence and stretching his neck as much as he could so he could smell even more in the air above him and beyond the fence. He started doing a signature Hound howl to let me know that he didn’t want to be confined by the fence anymore, so I listened and we headed to the walking trail.
Old Red is really in his element when he’s in the woods, and it’s clear that his breed is meant to be there. We literally ran the entire trail (which tells you how contagious Old Red’s enthusiasm is, because I don’t run for anything or anybody!), and Old Red would have been happy to run another lap but I needed a break. We only stopped once during our run for Old Red to sniff around the base of the tree before we were off again. Old Red is a sweet boy who gets along with kids and would love to be part of an active household. If you think that might be yours, come in soon to meet Old Red!
And even though it was rainy, I of course had to take my best buddy Blush for our weekly walk around the trail. She didn’t mind the rain either 🙂
Then it was time to head inside and say hello to the cats. My camera also needed a chance to dry off, so apologies for the first few pictures being blurry!
So many cute cats to choose from!
