In this life, you never know where the journey will take you...
If the time is right, God, fate, destiny, synchronicity or whatever you want to call it, sometimes steps in and creates miracles. I truly believe this.
Now don't get me wrong, alot of hard work also factors into everyday miracles!!
We dismiss so many things, we think are everyday occurrences, they are miracles.
The greatest miracle that can come from these posts is a hope, that it inspires a nation to adopt rescued/shelter dogs, rather than buy them from pet stores or puppymills
are a greed based industry, profiting from misery & preying on animal loving consumers. Please don't buy pets from petstores & support this industry.
Support your local shelters & rescues this holiday season.
"IF" I could have my Christmas wish it would be: For the Obama family to meet "Bean".
After all, adopting a dog is a very personal thing, the whole family would need to connect with the animal. Especially Sasha & Malia, for Bean would be their constant companion & responsibility. If after meeting Bean they think she is the one, I would keep her till they are settled & continue her training. She's about 90% housebroken now!!
When they settle in D.C., I would happily bring her to them, if the opportunity would arise...
Even if "Bean" doesn't make it to the White House, my hope is the bigger message.
To create awareness to support shelters & rescues wherever you live.
No matter what your station in life, you can donate time, money, photography, computer & clerical skills, a dog walk, etc, it is all needed everywhere!!! Together we can all make a huge difference for the animals by doing small things:)
I know I must sound like a broken record, but this is a message I believe needs to be said.
The guys below are just a few of the many faces I brought up north with me this trip.
Give the gift of home and life this holiday season... Just please be sure to think things thru prior to adoption. This is a commitment for the life of the animal, not just for Christmas day.
They are lives who deserve love, patience & training. Just like kids they only know what they are taught. If the time is taken to properly train the pet, you will not be disappointed:)
"Vinnie" van gogh is a male Schnauzer mix, approximately 3 months old. Half an ear missing, we're not sure what happened, he was like that at animal control.
All healed now, he is a LOVE!!! Just so happy to follow you everywhere. He is a little afraid of fast downward motions, but is learning quickly no one is going to hurt him.
"Nicholas" is a male Great Pyrenees/ mix. Approximately 5 months old. LOVES everyone!! Goofy, Silly, sweet, loving boy. Will be a big guy, but just that much more to love!!!
"Honey" above is a female Boston Terrier/ Pom mix. Approximately 10 weeks old.
Sooo darling, she loves to sit in your lap and give kisses.
"Fred" is a male we don't know what mix:) He looks like a tiny Golden Retriever. Approximately 4 months old & about 8 pounds.
He likes to talk, follow you and play non stop with the other dogs.
This beauty above is "Yodel". She is a female Husky, approximately 4 years old. Great girl!!! Loves people & is social with other dogs. Had a tough beginning, but is on to a better life.
She loves to garden, dug me lots of holes:)
This is Yodel's baby, one of 5 that survived. Darling little one is now 10 weeks old, .
I haven't had a chance to take updated pictures but you get the idea of how cute she is!
Next to her is another girl, one of 5 lab/retriever mixes. They are 5-6 months old.
All have just the most wonderful personalities!!! A true companion in every sense of the word.
They are now in Chicago
up for adoption.
We have so many wonderful dogs, but time gets away from me, caring for so many.
For now this is the best I can do to keep you updated..
I head back to Tennessee tomorrow..
Long drive, but well worth it!!!! Will update soon...
