Don’t know about you…but I LOVE dogs!!

I have had dogs since the day that I was born.  I could not imagine my life without a furry loving dog.

Lucy Bear, 11 yr old Aussie Kelpie.

Molly Macaroni, 9 yr old Beagle.

Lucy was given to me by someone who was overwhelmed by her puppy needs and Molly was rescued. These two girls have filled our home with love and much joy.   Lucy is my heart dog and Molly is my little clown.

Did ya know that every day hundreds of dogs are surrendered to shelters, are on the streets homeless or are abandoned by their owners!   All of these dogs are in need of loving forever homes.

Please do your part to help homeless dogs; spay, neuter, and adopt!

Before you decide to adopt a dog: Determining if You’re Ready

“To the world you might be one person, but to one animal you might be the world”

If you are not ready to adopt a dog, there are so many ways to help homeless dogs. You can volunteer at a local shelter, sponsor a dog in foster care or make a donation to your local shelter.

“Dogs have given us their absolute all. We are the center of their universe, we are the focus of their love and faith and trust. They serve us in return for scraps. It is without a doubt the best deal man has ever made.” Roger Cara

How have dogs changed your life?  Has there been one special dog in your life?

Arooo and Woof-Woof!
