Announcement about the last reunion


Last weekend, ARK held a reunion. Ms. Oliver brought me (Badger) along too – sorry to intrude! More participants than we had expected wanted to take part, so we suddenly had to divide the event over two days because not everybody could fit into the dog run where it was being held. Thank you to those of you who kindly agreed to take part in the Sunday reunion. On both days the weather was beautiful and we all had a great time.

The picture above is of training class being taught by Ms. Tsuda. The parents of the dogs listened carefully to learn how to train their dogs.


We also had a true or false quiz game.
The questions were all too easy for me, but nobody else got all of them right. Of course I knew them all, but with the dignity and manners of a humble pet, I was discreet and pretended not to.

Look, Cinnamon is trying so hard to tell his dad the right answer!
“Daddy, I think this one’s false!”


The dogs had a great time playing with each other.
Some knew each other already and some were meeting for the first time; some were adopted young and were reunited with their siblings. Others were scared and hid in the corners of the dog run where other dogs, worried about them, went to visit them.

What really surprised me was seeing dogs who when they were at ARK, were not able to make friends with any other dogs. But at the reunion, they went around with no lead and got along well with the other dogs. When dogs are rehomed, they become such good dogs. Maybe it is thanks to the love they receive from their new families?


Everyone really seemed to enjoy the day they spent at the reunion, and really showed the love they feel for their dogs. All of these dogs wound up at ARK each at different times and through different circumstances. But I really felt that through the love of their new families, they’d been able to overcome the hurt and the scars of their past, and that makes me feel so relieved.
