Picture Perfect - a black dog, a black goat & a black pig

Thought I'd share a smile...
Our friend, Gill Pollard
just adopted these 2 cuties
their owner was no longer able to care for them
and he wanted to make sure they stayed together

Toby & Porkchop
(I'm thinking you can guess who is who)
are now kept company by Aggy
seen here in this previous blog

these are just a few of
Gill's inspirations
from his home
stop in to see his paintings

Lovely Bones

I first discovered Beach Bungalow 8
(see this earlier post for more on 1st Dibs)
I've enjoyed following Megan's blog ever since.

Thought I'd share my favorite post to date
from Beach Bungalow 8, called Lovely Bones.
I think anyone who has lived in
an older home can relate.

We took a chance on love... and got burned!

Remember this cute picture
posted on Friday?
We here @ The Dog must have been
under some Valentine spell
filled with warm & fuzzy thoughts
wanting to spread some love
to our daily passerbys
We knew it was risk...
even talked about it Friday evening...
should we leave them up?
Who would dare to take them?
It's Valentine's Day after all!
Well... here's our answer:
for the 'stealing of our hearts' click here
for the 'getaway' click here
* note: if you recognize these 2 punks
or their getaway car,
Thanks... and btw, we still *heart* you
and hope your Valentine's was Happy!

Feed the Dogs @ 'The Dog'

Feed the Dogs
@ 'The Dog'
Black Dog Salvage is now proud to be a
permanent pet food donation site
Donated dry dog & cat food will help supply the
Manna Ministries food pantry and Meals on Wheels programs.
For more information about the RVSPCA's
PETs (Pets Eat Too) Program, click here
Providing food to pets in need
allows them to stay in their loving homes
and prevents them from ending up in shelters,
especially in these challenging economic times.
How you can help:
Drop off a bag of dry dog/puppy or cat/kitten food
and in return
your next Black Dog Salvage purchase!

Any questions? Give us a call! 540 343 6200.

More details coming soon!

Black Dog Salvage *Hearts* YOU!

Happy Valentine's Day Weekend!

We'll be open Saturday from 9am-5pm

we have fun treats for every Valentine!
