We made it to Williamsburg and I cannot wait to go to Colonial Williamsburg and do all the tourist-y stuff. But work is calling me and I have several appointments to speak to some of the Navy’s Fleet & Family people. I love telling them all about Guardian Angels for Soldier’s Pet and how I can help their sailors!!
Speaking of sailors, today is Maverick’s Reunion with his master, Justen W. I know it will be bittersweet because we have really grown fond of this Husky! The closer we got to Justen’s house, the more excited Maverick got!! He knew he was going home! When we got to Justen’s house, I texted him and told him we were there. When Justen came out, Maverick ran to him and just danced all around him. He was so happy to see his owner!
That is exactly what makes my job so wonderful. Just seeing the excitement and happiness in both the owner and the pet is awesome! You can actually see the love they have for each other shining in their eyes! I had tears in my eyes, but my heart was so filled with joy!
After they got re-acquainted with each other, we talked for a while. Justen told us he’d probably be heading out again in about 4 months. I told him that if he wanted us to watch Maverick again to just let us know. We should be coming home from our “winter vacay” in Bonita Springs, Florida by that time. I have no doubt that Maverick and Justen will be part of our family from now on!
As soon as I figure out how to post pictures on here, I will, so be looking for them!
We will be in the Williamsburg area for the next 9 days or so. Thursday, Nov. 11th is Veterans Day. Make sure to Thank a Veteran for their service to our country.
On Nov. 13th & 14th, we will be having an information table at the PetsMart in Norfolk & the PetsMart in Virginia Beach.
On Saturday, Nov. 13th, we will be at the PetsMart in Norfolk, located at 1275 N. Military Hwy from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.
On Sunday, Nov. 14th, we will be at the PetsMart in Virginia Beach, located at 501 Hilltop Plaza from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.
The reason I do these information tables is because I NEED FOSTER HOMES IN VIRGINIA!!!!! Please come out on one of these days, and bring a couple of friends. The more that I can educate the public about the fact that deployments happen every day somewhere in America, and veterans go into the hospital every day somewhere in America, the more I hope to get more Foster Homes!!

It was so wonderful to meet you, Deb! Plus I got to meet Nipsey and your dog. It was too bad that I missed meeting Myesha. Maybe next time! Thank you so very much for coming up to PetsMart and keeping me company while I was there. I met many nice people there!! On Sunday at the PetsMart in Virginia Beach, we raised $180! Not too shabby, and we spoke to many people who were interested in the organization and program! I’d say it was a great day!!
