My family attended the DuPage County Fair today and I was able to meet with the representatives from the Siberian Husky Rescue. I met three great dogs, two of which were up for adoption. Zelda, Baru and Ruby were present for the event.
Zelda was actually what is termed a foster failure since she was adopted by her foster mother Deb. Zelda was only 16 months old when she came to the Siberian Husky Rescue but she had already been brutally abused, thus feeling as though humans were her permanent enemy.
Baru is actually what the Rescue has termed a Boxerian; half Boxer, half Siberian – mom was the Siberian. Baru was seven months old today. He is not being rescued because he is with the Siberian Husky Rescue and his main features are that of a Boxer with an extremely long tail.
Ruby is three years old and in foster care with Bryan who has had Ruby for two and a half weeks. Ruby is a true-to-life Siberian Husky with one brown eye and one sky blue eye. She is a lovely black and grey mix.
I fell in love with both dogs, although Baru really etched his way into my heart. Please take a look at this beautiful young dog. He is great with kids as you will be able to see from the attached photos.
Once I had met all of the dogs. I walked around the Fair with my son Drew and my husband Kent. We discovered three other companies of interest to the dog society.
The first company which really struck my interest is Current Dog Training; Gary Current is the owner. Gary was very interesting to talk to and informed me all about his company. He has three degrees of training available:
- Obedience Training which consists of 60% of his business;
- Weekend Warriors – Hunting Training for Pointers and Retrievers;
- AKC Training.
The next company was the Lombard Veterinary Hospital. Although this company does not specialize in dogs, they were interesting to me because they were unique in their industry and specialized in Birds, Reptiles, Amphibians, Fish, Arachnids, Rodents, Marsupials, Primates and other Small Mammals.
The final company really struck a chord with me because philanthropy is my ballgame. High Hopes for Pets are all-natural products developed by a pet nutritionist. Every sale of these products gives hope to homeless pets.
Because of these fine organizations and individuals, the DuPage County Fair was so much more fun for me this year. Thank you to Carrie for providing me with a Press Pass to the Fair so I could report to the public about these fantastic events going on in Wheaton, Illinois!
