Hero for a Day

Hero has got to be one of the most photogenic pooches I've ever encountered. I'm no photography expert (at all) but it'd be hard to take a bad picture of this brindle boy! Hero and I had a really nice walk in Aquatic Park the other day after the heavy rain storm.

Definitely one of the more unusual items I've ever encountered in Aquatic Park. Did the storm blow this bowling ball in? Love that it matched Hero's fetching blue leash

Hero planted himself in the fairy circle of mushrooms on the grass. Let's hope some magic brings this boy a home of his own.

Ah, the pleasures of chewing on a bully stick on the wet grass in the sunshine

Hero posed quite readily against a metal art sculpture in the park.
I'm calling it "The Brindle on Brown" series:

Before dropping Hero off at his shelter kennel we stopped to play ball in the small dog run.

It was a good day to be Hero!

November's Volunteer of the Month

Just under the wire for our November volunteer! Justin has been doing great work at the shelter for several years now. Thanks for being such a friend to all of the animals, Justin!
What do you do when you're not at the shelter?

I'm a student so I spend a lot of time studying. I am also recently engaged so lately I've been trying to plan my wedding.
Why did you initially decide to volunteer at BACS?

When I moved to the bay area I was in a situation where I couldn't have pets. I turned to volunteering at BACS in order to fulfill my desire to interact with dogs and cat.
What are your favorite things about volunteering?

Initially it was simply hanging out with the animals. Now that I have been volunteering for a couple years I also really look forward to seeing all the great people too, from the awesome shelter staff to all the other helpful and friendly volunteers.
Who are you favorite dogs (and/or cats), past and present?
Present: Hero, JoJo, Belle, Diamond, Greta.Past: Brando, Blue, Gus, Molly, Cosmo, Decker, Joey, Nemo, Bill, Brad, just to name a few.
