We end our week with our personal all-time favorite Rusty video – fighting the balloons. Every year, we walk with Sarge’s Animal Rescue Foundation in their Annual Downtown Dog Walk – a fundraiser for our local all-breed rescue.
So let’s pause a minute for a brief commercial. Several readers have asked if they can do something to memorialize Rusty. Click that link we just provided and make a small donation. Sarge’s has dramatically reduced the euthanasia rate in our county with their determined focus to save as many animals as possible. We can vouch that they squeeze every penny to make sure the money is being spent well. And, if you prefer to do something closer to home, make a donation in Rusty’s honor to your own favorite rescue. We are HUGE believers in dog (and cat) rescue and your $5, $10, $25, $50 donation can literally save a dog’s or cat’s life. Just ask Rusty – a rescue who came to Chez Herd because of the big hearts and hard work of rescuers. And tell them The Thundering Herd and Rusty sent you.
Back to our regular programming. We had completed the walk and were hanging out on the courthouse lawn enjoying the festivities. Rusty, as always, invented his own game to entertain himself. He picked a group of balloons and began a boxing match. The picture above was emailed to us (we are so sorry that we have forgotten who – please let us know and we will be glad to provide credit) and we were fortunate to capture the video below.
