A Rescue Dog's Christmas Wish

A Rescue Dog’s Christmas Poem

`Tis the night before Christmas and all through the town,
Every shelter is full – we are lost but not found,
Our numbers are hung on our kennels so bare,
We hope every minute that someone will care,
They’ll come to adopt us and give us the call,
“Come here, Max and Sparkie – come fetch your new ball! !”

But now we sit here and think of the days…
We were treated so fondly – we had cute, baby ways,
Once we were little, then we grew and we grew -
Now we’re no longer young and we’re no longer new.
So out the back door we were thrown like the trash,
They reacted so quickly – why were they so rash?

We “jump on the children”, “don’t come when they call”,
We “bark when they leave us”, “climb over the wall”.
We should have been neutered, we should have been spayed,
Now we suffer the consequence of the errors they made.
If only they’d trained us, if only we knew…
We’d have done what they asked us and worshipped them, too.

We were left in the backyard, or worse – let to roam -
Now we’re tired and lonely and out of a home.
They dropped us off here and they kissed us good-bye…
“Maybe someone else will give you a try.”
So now here we are, all confused and alone…
In a shelter with others who long for a home.

The kind workers come through with-a meal and a pat,
With so many to care for, they can’t stay to chat,
They move to the next kennel, giving each of us cheer…
We know that they wonder how long we’ll be here.
We lie down to sleep and sweet dreams fill our heads…
Of a home filled with love and our own cosy beds. -

Then we wake to see sad eyes, brimming with tears -
Our friends filled with emptiness, worry, and fear.
If you can’t adopt us and there’s no room at the Inn -
Could you help with the bills and fill our food bin?
We count on your kindness each day of the year -
Can you give more than hope to everyone here?

Please make a donation to pay for the heat…
And help get us something special to eat
The shelter that cares for us wants us to live,
And more of us will, if more people will give.

Happy Holidays from WBBR

As another year is almost over, we say goodbye to 2011 and get ready to welcome 2012 by reflecting on the successes of 2011.

WBBR has an amazing team of volunteers who work very hard to make all the magic happen. We are grateful to have such wonderful people who help us to achieve our goals. Volunteering can be sometimes a very difficult thing to do and can be both draining mentally and physically. But the rewards are worth all the hardships that we endure. Thank you to each and every one of our volunteers for everything you do. Your dedication and love for the dogs is tremendous!

A big thank you goes out to all our supporters and donators. It truly is a team effort with a very important goal in mind. Your support is immensely appreciated. We are very lucky to have the support and generosity that you provide.

WBBR experienced many successes, including the Annual Pub Night fundraiser, and Boxer Walk. We have made many new friends along the way and have lost many close to our hearts. The footprints in our hearts will always remain and the memory of our loved ones will live on forever.

We at WBBR wish everyone a very wonderful Holiday Season and all the best of Boxer loves and snuggles to everyone in the New Year! We look forward to even more successes in 2012 with our WBBR family.

Kerri, Jennifer & Sheri
And all the Boxers of WBBR

Happy 1 year to Holly!!

Hi Marilyn & Jennifer,

As we approach Holly's one year birthday, I wanted to pass on this photo of her and her cousins Rhuby and Teddy. Hols is rather tall and lanky, but as adorable as ever. Hopefully we'll be able to meet one day at a dog walk.

Warm regards,
Sharon & Mauricio

WBBR honors one of our hardworking families!! - Meet Reegan

WBBR has some pretty amazing families that adopt from us. One of these amazing families adopted Reegan. We would like to give this family a big pat on the back for the hardwork and committment for working thru Reegan's seperation anxiety. This family never gave up and continued to love and support Reegan. Thank you to you from the bottom of our hearts!

Hi Sherri,

Hope you remember Reegan. So these are some of the summer pictures of us out and about.
He is doing fantastic and he is a real sweetheart. He is very smart and athletic and he is growing more everyday. It took him awhile to really
put on some good weight and getting onto the winter season he even is putting on some fat and extra hair. At first I thought I had shrunk his coat before I realized he had just
gained weight. I had to buy him a new winter coat anyways.
Meia the little half boxer is deceiving with her size but actually outruns Reegan most of the time. Now that the snow is here his longer legs are a bit of an advantage and it drives Meia nuts being outrun.

He is very healthy and super smart. He knows all his commands and is a real gentleman with our daughter. All our separation anxiety has resolved itself now that he is secure in his surroundings and when we travel he also stays way more relaxed and will settle quicker as well.
I'm excited to say that I'm moving into the twentieth century and getting myself a cell phone with a great camera and look forward to sending you pictures of Reegan in northern Canada.

If you have any questions about him please email me, and thanks very much for all the support. Lots of people have been asking us about him. (They are quiet the good looking pair!) I let them know about your great organization and how great it is.
