May the spirit of celebrating shelter dogs stay in our hearts and actions… to keep saving dogs from the doom of the pound. With each day passes closer to Christmas may we think of providing a dog a special gift - a home.
” He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe to him to be worthy of such devotion.” – Unknown-
“If you ever pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you; that is the principal difference between a dog and man” – Mark Twain -
A thought to ponder when we save a rescue dog, we see a miracle before our eyes.
“Woof”…’Woof”….let’s go play…here’s the ball…”Woof”. Take a moment to play and laugh at the pure enjoyment ” Your dog is calling for you.”
For most families have the long weekend to spend time with and eat left overs. Shop the stores on Black Friday for great deals. While we focus on to Christmas there still is a need, there are only a few days left of National Shelter Dog Month to help draw the attention for shelter animals. However the message continues into and through on a daily basis. While shopping think of a gift you could provide a shelter… a blanket, water dish, maybe a bag of food for the animls.
May your day be full of fun with family and friends. Remember your pets and the business in the house… keep them safe and provide a quiet place for them. Have a great day.
Well the day before Thanksgiving, and we are running around packing, or preparing for guest, in the kitchen. I wanted to share…what I am thankful for. I am thankful my boys will be home for Christmas, my brother in Canada is having F>U>N FUN ; ) and I have good friends and neighbors. My folks are well and active.
My wish for you…have a safe Holiday – day and weekend.
Remember I am still pondering the next Dog in my life and Yes The DOG will come from a rescue program/shelter.
It’s been almost 2 years since Darby past away. I am starting to feel having another dog again would be great. The happy memories I shared with Darby will be there for ever. You the reader can share those memories with me and Darby. The book is written to celebrate his life and the hope of all rescue dogs.
First I ask my self do you have the time?
The reason I ask this. My animals are more like people than animals. Each have there quility moments or two…. : ) I work from home. So I am here. What if in a year my schedule requires me to leave the house for days … what then. I know the cats hate the fact I leave to go grocery shopping! Let alone away for a couple of days…….
With the Holidays coming ever so quickly. Many families think about a family gift. For the little girl a pony, or for the boy a dog. Before you go and buy. Seek advice… sometimes 2 weeks at a horse camp would be safer and more fun. For the boy and his dog… read Darby’s Story for guidence. This delightful children/family book helps you/the family look at your home life style, the house and the safety concerns of space in the back yard to how close the house is the road.
I would like your feedback concerning animal gifts for your family. This will be the topic of discussion for a bit.
PUPPIES are simply Irresistible… remember to laugh and play often. Have a tranquile Sunday.
Booksigning for Darby’s Darby at Wild About Books on Olympic Ave. Clearlake Ca. 3pm.
Here is the quote for the day. From Just Goldens by Tom Davis, ‘Puppies and mud go together like Astaire and Rogers,… This goes a long way toward explaining why puppies and carpets are usually a bad mix.’
I hope everyone has a great day : )
