On October 7, 2007, a very special garden party was held
in Virginia. It was the one-year anniversary reunion of those puppies rescued during the war between Israel and
Hezbollah who were brought to the Washington area to find homes.
Screams of delight were heard as the adoptive
families saw their puppies' siblings for the first time and
realized they were identical twins. Ziva and
compared notes about their pups behavior and habits. "Did yours
do this at the beginning?" "Yes! Yours, too?" Sabra and Liora took over the pool, Latke
and Corona kissed, and Shayna
and Sabra (another Sabra) graciously endured all the attention
and repeatedly being told they looked gorgeous. Though not
siblings, Neri and Bella recognized one another instantly, leapt
on each other and began a frantic play session that didn't end
until it was time to go home, when their mothers decided they
would just have to arrange a play date for them.
Not everyone was able to
make it to the event,
but attendees had a ball and asked for an encore, so we hope
even more will be able to attend next time.
We'd like to thank Ruth and Bucky McNey for so
generously lending us their backyard for the reunion, and also
the First Presbyterian Church of Annandale for lending us
to CHAI so more animals can be helped in the future.
