Candice  Welcome to our farm of misfits 6 rescued dogs + fosters Hope we can make you smile 😊

I woke up this morning, thinking of Lucky of course, but instead of feeling sad I had a little smile. It's been more than hard losing him but I am so very grateful for all the years we had together. When we moved here to Oregon he wasn't doing so well. On the drive up I told him bud you gotta come around because we bought you a farm! Who knew he'd go on to live another 3 years? Amazing. He was always such a proud, stubborn guy so we had to make the impossible decision for him to leave this world for him. His body was shutting down, awful things were happening, and I know he would have wanted to go out "with his boots on" so that's what we did. He was on his bed, on the front porch with his beautiful view, surrounded by the whole family. It was as peaceful as it could have possibly ever been, a gorgeous day with a gentle breeze - like heaven was welcoming him. The first few days after were understandably difficult but I feel like we may be turning a corner now. I think of him today with love in my heart and I know for sure that he will never be forgotten. The outpouring of kindness from you all has been mind blowing. I am incredibly humbled by the amount of love we have been shown. I am so thankful that I was somehow able to capture his spirit and share it with all of you. Thank you will never be enough. You have helped me heal more than you could ever know. ❀️ I chose this video to post today because I think it shows his impatient, demanding, hungry, funny, joyous personality the best. He always made me laugh and I will continue to do so; saving pups, living life to the fullest possible, keeping my chin up, and sharing it with all of you in his honor. I love you guys, and I love how you love. Your pups, our pups, each other. The world needs more of it. I am grateful every day for this community we have created. Please continue to adopt, rescue, foster, donate, spay, and neuter so we can insure all dogs get to live a life like Lucky πŸ€πŸ“ #rescuefamily #GIVEMEDACAKENOWWOMAN #NOTachocolatecake πŸ™ˆ

Lucky Miller Feb 23, 2003 - June 15, 2018. Wake up every morning ready to party, eat all the foods, take in the views, enjoy the little things. Live your life to the fullest, happiest, and love everyone every day - if we all were a little like Lucky our world would be a better place. Goodbye my chocolate boy. I promise to love you forever πŸ’” #mywholeheart * we buried him on the daisy covered hillside, right next his strawberry patch πŸ“πŸ€

The goodest boy ever πŸ’— today was harder than yesterday. But he still had his filet mignon for dinner and of course, dessert 🍦I know he will tell me when. Thank you so much everyone, from the bottom of my heart, for all of the support and kind words. #givemeallthefoods #foreverandever #stillsmiling #chocolateshadow

Don't worry this is not "the" post, exactly. Those who follow our stories may be aware that we almost lost our Lucky yesterday. I was away from home supporting the @bissellpets foundation when he started to shut down. My husband called me at 4 am, so upset, to tell me that Luck had stopped eating and drinking, wouldn't come inside the house, couldn't walk, along with some other scary symptoms. I immediately packed my bags and with the support of the amazing @cathy_bissell, began my journey home without attending the event. I got him the medical attention he needed and my family was working hard to keep him comfortable while I was trying to get to him. It ended up being an absolute travel nightmare - a total of 21 hours to get home. It wasn't something I thought I'd ever share but it was real life and I was alone and scared. You all came through in incredible ways though and your words were so comforting, thank you. You seriously held me together. I finally made it home and it was rough. I slept on the kitchen floor next to him and loved him all night. So, today. Here's the deal. He is 15 1/2 years old and his body is shutting down. As much as it breaks my heart to say, this is not something he will get better from. All we can do now is make him comfortable and happy. The good news is with the arrival home of mom he has started eating and drinking again, and an increase in his pain meds is helping him to move around a little better. This afternoon I carried him down the hill to check on his strawberry patch. When he saw where we were going he started a wobbly walk on his own towards it. I know it sounds crazy, but this season we've had maybe 10 strawberries total. Today there were the most I've ever seen - it was so special. I let him eat a bunch and then made him a filet mignon for dinner. This is all really hard and in my head I thought I'd just let everyone know after the fact so that you didn't have to endure this emotional journey. But, although most of us are technically strangers, you all feel like our family. You have grown to love this old guy too and I am just going to follow my heart and share what I can, for however long that may be. Love you all ❀️

Happy birthday to the best dog dad around! None of these dog raising/saving shenanigans would be possible without your love and support. Thank you babe for enduring Roofus love/butt stamps, Pearlie's brain licks, and Kilo's makeout sesh's. For always sharing your food with Lucky, your pillow and popcicles with Penny, and for not being too embarrassed to yell for Moo outside (I should film and share sometime - "Mooooo Mooooo Mooooo" - hilarious). For loving each foster as your own as they come through and for at times sharing our bed with them, even the crusty ones. I love you with every piece of my heart and am so blessed to have been able to say happy birthday to you for 25 years in a row. Have the best day you deserve the world! #hardestworkingguyever #thedogfather #swipeswipeswipe #rescuefamily

New baby Chi's coming this week! Dooders is going to lose her mind 😍 Repost @nwdogproject - New bebe’s on their way!!! πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•
Some irresponsible humans failed to have their dog spayed, so an accidental liter was and had these β€œunwanted” pups were shelter bound. We couldn’t let that happen, so without hesitation we welcomed them into the NWDP pack where we will get them fixed and into the responsible, loving homes they deserve! And thanks to @loveleorescue spay and neuter program down in LA, mom dog will be getting spayed at their next clinic! πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ‘ŒπŸ½
Thank you @luckydelilah for taking care of these guys until they could head up to us! The pups will be hanging with staff member @graceannahale for a few days and then joining the @roofusandkilo pack!!! πŸ€— Stay tuned for some serious cuteness coming your way!!
And friends, PLEASE remember to SPAY and NEUTER your pets. Millions of β€œunwanted” animals are euthanized in the shelters every year. You can help make a difference by educating folks on the importance of spay and neuter, donating to and/or volunteering with one of the many amazing spay and neuter programs out there and when you’re ready to add a new 4-legged buddy to your family please choose to #adoptnotshop. πŸ™πŸ½

WHAT IS HAPPENING TONIGHT?! I had to turn the sound off I could not stop laughing. Her face at the end 🀣 #stoplaughingwoman #whatareyou #snoozindood #shouldcheckLuckysCBD #rescuefamily

She wanted a cracker so I gave her one. Then it took at least 5 minutes, until she saw Moo eat his, for her to figure out what to do with it. She is so special πŸ˜‚ #yetsheeatsflies #doodersfiguresoutlife #shelovedit #oncesheknewitwasfoods #rescuefamily

#tbt Baby Pearl! Aka Dooders, Dood, Pearlie, Poil. She came to us as a foster back in 2016 along with 2 other small pups who were not her siblings but that she was placed with at the shelter so she wouldn't be alone. My daughter fell in love with her and begged to keep her when adoption time came "I'll do all the work and clean up and everything" πŸ™„. Ha, so yes officially she is her dog but somehow I always wake up with a Dooder teddy bear tucked into my side. SHE IS HILARIOUS 24 HOURS A DAY. Seriously you guys wouldn't believe it. She is perfectly weird and judgy and playful and cuddly. She totally breaks the small dog stereotype - no yapping, shaking, biting. Actually I kind of hope that's what all our dogs do. As senior dogs, small dogs, pit bulls, Moo's- They each have their strengths and weaknesses like any of us. But with proper care, love, guidance, and socialization their individual personalities can truly shine! Then, hopefully, people can see past their breed/age/size reputations and be willing to give another shelter dog a chance πŸ™πŸ’— #adoptdontshop #spayandneuter #doggytherapy #swipeswipeswipe #rescuefamily

Today after lots of farm chores we had a picnic which basically was just me eating on the ground while all 6 dogs drooled on me. Still lovely though 🌼 #dontworryishared #swipeswipeswipe #rescuefamily

Repost @nwdogproject - Loooooook at them!!! 😭 Gus & Leila have joined their new families and they couldn’t have landed themselves better ones! πŸ’•
These pups had quite the rough start - - surviving parvo, sarcoptic mange, upper respiratory infections and giardia, oy! There’s no way they’d be the happy, healthy pups they are now if it’s wasn’t for their amazing foster momma Candice @roofusandkilo. πŸ™πŸ½ We cannot thank her enough for her commitment to these babes and the incredible work she does for our organization. Thank you Candice!! πŸ’• We also have all of YOU fabulous folks to thank, your support and generosity allowed us to provide these #rescuepuppies with everything they needed to gain their health back. Thanks for making it happen, you guys rock!!! 😘
Gus and Leila both have exciting lives ahead and we are so happy that their wonderful families chose to #adoptnotshop! Happy lives little ones! ❀️

*UPDATE: Packet has made its way out 😷* Sooo... just now I was trying to get something out of the fridge and you all know how Lucky stays right in front of it right? Well a leftover McDonald's hot mustard sauce accidentally fell out. I dove like a ninja after it but was too late - it was gone, down the hatch and swallowed whole, in 1.5 seconds. He is very pleased with himself now. I'll let you know how the house smells later. Or, no, maybe I won't πŸ€­πŸ˜«πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ #furcoveredgarbagedisposal #dontworryhesfine #heevenateaplateonce #givemeallthefoods #oranythingthatlookslikefoods #rescuefamily
