Dogs are truly the "companions of our souls" and they are with us in good times and bad. They bring us so much joy and love us so deeply. I love all animals but I particularly love dogs and have had at least one dog in my life all of my life. It hurts me to see how many dogs are not given the love that they need and deserve and I can hardly go to a shelter because I want to take them all home with me. Fortunately we have a wonderful shelter close by, the Rancho Coastal Humane Society and they win awards for how well their shelter is managed and how well they take care of their animals. They are a No Kill shelter and my last two fur babies have come from there. Inspector Gumby is my baby now.
This is a portrait of Gumby with his "Doggles" on, getting ready to go for a car ride where he likes to put his head out the window if we let him. I thought that maybe he would not like these little protective goggles but he seems to think that he is special in them. They also make aviator caps to protect a dog's ears as well so they won't develop hematomas from the wind. I have dealt with that and it is not pleasant for you or your fur baby
