Lara & Barney Reunite with Alison Hardison

This weekend Lara, Barney, Ollie and I met up with friends and their rescue pups at Dog Beach in Del Mar. We had the greatest surprise when Alison Hardison walked up to us. She saw Lara and Barney first and thought it was too much of a coincidence that an English lab and a St. B would be hanging out together.

Alison was their guardian angel who, through a rescue group, pulled them from the Carlsbad shelter last summer -- Lara in June and Barney in August. She also arranged for them to be spayed and neutered when the time came.

The lady who introduced me to Alison described her as an "angel" and she really is. She had 4-year-old daughter, Zahara, in tow and was pregnant with her other daughter, Asilah, when she extended herself to help Lara, Barney and scores of other distressed pups last summer. Today, Alison has some health issues that are causing her to slow down, so we're wishing her all the best. She's a favorite of ours. Here is a video of Lara and Barney playing in the surf over the weekend.
