Sundays at Dog Tales ~ visitors welcome
Linda and I were heading up for a walk at the Cawthra Mulock Nature Reserve on Sunday and drove past the Dog Tales Rescue & Sanctuary, on the 19th Sideroad between Dufferin and Bathurst Street. The dozens of beautiful heavy horses caught our eye and we immediately changed our plans. We parked on the shoulder of the 19th, along with 50 to 60 other vehicles, and headed towards the paddocks and barns. Sundays are visiting days at Dog Tales and there were over 100 men, women and children viewing the dozens of rescued dogs that are up for adoption. Pictured above is one of the volunteer handlers holding onto Bullet, who had been adopted and was joining his new family, later that very day. That's Linda in the background who had quickly decided on any one of about 15 dogs she would like to take home. There are other critters which reside at Dog Tales, including ponies, pigs, geese, and a big white rabbit, some of which are pictured below. The weather, the setting, the people and the animals were in perfect harmony on this particular afternoon. Dog Tales is an amazingly impressive addition to King's country charms.
