Meet Homie!

We met Homer December 24th, 2020. Homer grew up in a quiet room at a local nursing home. He was a loyal best friend to an elderly man who passed away earlier in the year.

Homer’s life was turned upside down when he ended up on Craig’s list as a “free senior dog” (his vet records show he’s a 2007 model). He went through at least two failed rehoming attempts before Pathways Home Animal Rescue learned about his uncertain future and called Karen’s Aunt Jo, who provides temporary foster care for animals in need (yay for organizations that believe in rescuing old dogs and yay for humans that foster). Aunt Jo brought Homer to our family’s Christmas Eve pot luck, and as they say, the rest was history. It was clear to all of us, but especially Homer, that he was never leaving.

Homer enjoys resting quietly beside you, whatever you’re doing. He especially likes helping out in the kitchen, volunteering to taste test all stages of any potential culinary creation. Homer’s favorite hobby is going on “sniffaries”, sniffing out new and different places on walks several times a day.
