Rob and I were on vacation last week, and we finally made a trip to one of the places I've been wanting to visit since hearing about it a few years ago.
The Donkey Sanctuary of Canada
is a registered charity that provides homes for Donkeys and Mules, that for various reasons find themselves in need of a home. I'm still learning about the organization myself, and suggest visiting their website for detailed information.
They are home to close to a 100 Donkeys, and we visited during one of their special "Christmas Days" openings. It was cold and windy that day, and I honestly didn't think many people would be there. Boy, was I wrong! The parking lot was over flowing, and the Donkeys had lots of people visiting them.

I knew before we visited that we would sponsor a donkey while there. I also knew that we'd "know"
the donkey we should sponsor when we saw him or her. I was right, we did know when it happened, and it turned out not to be a donkey at all, but a lovely mule named "Petunia".

We really enjoyed ourselves despite the cold and windy weather. If you haven't made a trip to visit this place, I highly suggest you do. It's good for the spirit to hang out with the donkeys, and we look forward to many return visits!

**Do you have a hard to buy for animal lover on your Xmas list? Why not sponsor a donkey in their name! And in the Spring they can go visit their donkey!**
