To all Animal lovers

  • Out of the mouthes of Babes..We can all learn from this..
  • I love my rescue puppy.. Liberty
  • One day a man was walking along a beach as the sun was rising on the day.  As he walked along the shore, he noticed a small figure up ahead.  As he got closer, he realized it was a small boy who was picking up objects from the sand and throwing them into the sea.  As he approached, he said to the boy, "What are you doing?".  The boy replied, "Throwing starfish into the ocean".  "But why?" asked the astounded man.  "Because the sun is coming up and they are stranded on the beach.  The tide has gone out and if I don't help them, they will die".  The man thought for a moment as he looked up and down the vast stretch of beach covered with hundreds of starfish.  "Young man, don't you realize there are miles and miles of beach and starfish along every mile?  You can't possibly make a difference!"  At this, the boy bent down to pick up yet another starfish, walked to the water's edge and threw it in.  "Made a difference to that one", he said. 
Thank you to those who make a difference, from the bottom of every rescued animal's heart! 

Thanks for reading..and maybe ...pass it on??...

Oh Gail! I haven't read that fable in quite some time, and I appreciate the reminder!

While it's certainly something to keep in mind if a family *needs* a specific breed for allergy or other reasons ... the rest of us should choose a friend from the local rescue.

Those little lonely souls appreciate the love, and give it back, so much more ... and I hope it's OK to add ... don't discount those much-maligned Pit Bulls.

I've owned several who have all been sweet, fun and smart animals, and my sister currently has a rescued pit who was named by my nieces: "Princess Nala."

She's really dangerous ... if you sit down ... because she'll plop her 50 pounds in your lap and threaten never to move again ...

... whew ... thanks for letting me yammer on! :)
