Hello Pups ~
On October 13th, volunteers from the John Middleton company journeyed to the Farm to lend a hand with various projects around the kennels and property. I can’t count (I’m a dog, silly!), but there were A LOT of volunteers that sacrificed their Saturday morning (some even stayed longer!) to help. We couldn’t believe our eyes when the volunteers just kept arriving!
We had a list of things that needed to be done and the volunteers wasted no time splitting up and tackling the tasks.
First item on the list was to get our official sign in the ground. Done!
A group knocked down the outhouse ~ yes, there was an outhouse on the property. Since Huskies don’t use the toilet, we didn’t really need it. It was falling down anyway, so it was time to say goodbye to it.
Another group tackled the weeding and mulching of the flower beds around the farmhouse. Not only did they weed, but they also edged and cut back the hostas. After they planted the few mums that we had on the porch, a few of the volunteers left and came back with even more mums!
Still another group started in the kennels. Our interior kennel runs got their first coat of paint. The fencing around the kennel building was almost finished.
Later in the morning, Joey came out to supervise and greet as many of the volunteers as he could.
Check out some of the photos from our day with the volunteers from John Middleton.
We had so much fun and made so many great friends! Thank you all so much for all of your hard work!
