Don and I went to visit a new friend at the Kiva Donkey Rescue in Bernardo yesterday.

Our handsome friend’s name is Denali. He measures almost 17 hands, yet he’s a gentle, gentle soul. To put Denali’s size into perspective, Don is 6′ 2″ tall.

Denali’s size was a bit intimidating, but he let me pick up his feet.. and he put his head on my shoulder while I rubbed his ears. He loved having his ears rubbed.

Denali and his friends thoroughly enjoyed the apples and carrots we brought for them.

Denali hasn’t been feeling very well lately, so please send lots of positive, loving thoughts his way.

He deserves them.
