Ah, the sweet smell of freedom. (via The Bark Post)

Have you cried your daily tears of joy yet today? Well, get a hanky, because these photos of rescue dogs heading home for the first time will make you weep. All of the photos are from volunteers with Chicago Animal Care and Control. According to The Bark Post (the doggie paper of record), "Some waited for months, some were saved in their final hour, and all have found loving forever homes." See more happy dogs at The Bark Post and learn more about how to adopt a pup in the Chicago area at One Tail At A Time. If I had a tail, it would be wagging right now. (That sounded creepier than i intended, sorry.)
