Ubu & Tiger sunbathe

Ubu & Tiger sunbathe

From Sandi, a Cold Wet Noses volunteer:

“Ubu is such a character. He was probably one of Cold Wet Noses most well-known dogs. I fostered him for over a year and a half and he went to Petsmart tons of times, a baseball game, a TROT rummage sale event, the Octoberfest, the dog park, and I’m sure many other events that I can’t think of right now.

Everywhere we took his lovely mug, people recognized him. But he was a barely affectionate, funny looking, older, not very adoptable dog. Everyone wanted to pet him but not take him home.

Of course, there’s a saint around every corner and now he lives on several acres with other funny looking and/or older dogs, (including another ancient one, Tiger, also from Cold Wet Noses) and horses and mules, with his wonderful new mom Linda and her family in Sierra Vista.

His new adopter said that within a few weeks Ubu was shoving the others out of his way so he could hog the loving for himself. Just shows that they really know the difference between their foster home and their furrever home!”

Wow! Can you imagine fostering a dog for 1.5 years and being so dedicated taking him everywhere for exposure?

That is what Tucson Cold Wet Noses does. They go the extra mile or three to get each and every dog adopted.

There are only a few more days to buy beautiful bracelets to benefit Cold Wet Noses. Or if bling is not your thing, you can make a direct donation to them here.

Locally, you can buy $20 bracelets at:

-Silver Sea Jewelry & Gifts, 330 N. 4th Avenue, 624-9954
-Coyote Wore Sideburns Hair Salon, 630 N. 4th Avenue, 623-7341 (May only)
-Sissy’s Pet Grooming Salon, 7350 N. La Cholla Blvd (in Albertsons Shopping Center), 229-9898

Coiled bracelets are one-of-a-kind made with donated beads; one size fits most. Bracelets come with a paw charm.

You can also buy bracelets online (add $5.50 S&H). All bracelets sales sold online will be matched by an anonymous Cold Wet Noses adopter during May only. So, one bracelet for $20 translates into $40 to CWN. It’s a generous offer and an encouragement to shop online.
