"Hey Buddha,

How's it going? It's me Oyster, over at the Santa Maria shelter. I went for a walk today with this dog that looks like a coyote. It got me thinking that I don't mind going for walks with other dogs but I am not sure yet if I want to live with one. I'll let you know."

P.s. I saw your facebook post earlier. You DO know that "netflix and chill" means something else don't you?"

- Oyster

"Dear Oyster,

What?!?!?! No, I am a dog. I say exactly what I mean. I am literally watching a movie and relaxing on my couch. I am horrified. Should I take the post down??"

WELL!!! I'm with Buddha. (It's nice to be older, I feel so innocent! Had to look that up. Let us stay uninformed from now on Oyster!!). ♡

While at the shelter recently, we were telling Oyster that she really looked like one of our dogs named Buddha. She asked to see a picture and of course we obliged her. After seeing his photo she asked if maybe they could be pen pals. We told her we'd be happy to take letters back and forth for her and Buddha and we thought you all might enjoy them as well. #shelterdogs #pawpals ... See MoreSee Less

One of the many reasons dogs are so amazing.... senior dog Buddy obviously hit some bumps along the road of life to end up in a shelter. But when we put him in our car - a couple of strangers who put a leash on him and walked him to an unknown future.... he just trotted along, head held high and smiled as he looked through the window and greeted his future openly, joyfully and with unconditional trust.

We are only his transporters today. Tomorrow he heads to Muttville Senior Dog Rescue and his happily ever after. Big, big thanks to Muttville for giving Buddy his 2nd chance.
