An almost mandatory stop for us each weekend, at least as far as Casey's concerned, is a consignment shop in Fairhaven called Paws Awhile.
This Whatcom County Humane Society gift store inventory has a little something for just about everybody - local artwork, garden items, speciality pet supplies, greeting cards, jewelry, antiques, used books, you name it. And all of the proceeds benefit abandoned, injured, abused or neglected animals at WCHS. So naturally, we're regulars.
One of his favorite haunts, Casey could find Paws Awhile from almost anywhere. Not only do the store volunteers fawn all over him, but he knows if he's good he gets to sample the treat bowl.
So it's always a win-win - compassionate support for other "rejects" like Stella and our guy, and a liberal treat sampling policy at the door for tag-a-longs.
|Wow, Case. Pulling out all the stops...shaking hands for a treat. |
