Doggy Day

Hard to believe another doggy Thursday (make sure you check out Sue's post today, its a great one!) - or Little Friday as Chan likes to say - is upon us. Its been a heartbreaking doggy week here and I just wanted to remind everyone to please, love your pets, even if its just half as much as they love you!

While I am feeling beaten and broke down due to being unable to help save one special boy, I was reminded of some of the other doggies who I was able to help. Dottie's Mom emailed yesterday with some new pictures...

She reports that Dottie is doing good, learning manners and listening very well! She still enjoys sleeping under the covers and has a habit of waking her family up by giving soft kisses when they're sleeping. The shy little girl has come a long way - just like my Sophie!

I still adore this picture of sweet little Dottie hanging with her big step-brother, protector Zeus!

Ahh... happy thoughts of another rescue doggy in her loving, forever home! It is one of the most rewarding experiences ever!

My kids were all excited too see snow last night, but thankfully it wasn't more than a few inches, which turned to a mix and then to rain. Here are some pics from this week...

The sleepy girls...

The always on-guard boys...

They all wanted to wish their Grampy a very Happy Birthday today! I think they might have been a little more concerned with trying to figure out if they get any cake out of this deal, but they'll just have to wait another couple of weeks for Zeus' birthday!

I'll end today's post by asking you to please say a little prayer for a special little guy who's life was cut much too short. RIP Luke, I always had a special place in my heart for you, after all you reminded me a lot of my Zeus (especially those adorable "airplane ears")... you will be missed dearly.

If only we could save them all... Someday when I win the lottery I'm going to buy a farm and save every single cat, dog, horse, cow, chicken, pig...whoever needs a home can have one at Britknitter Farm. Note to self: Must start buying lottery tickets.

Dottie is SO precious, and I do love that photo of her with Zeus, of course...

Hang in there hon...

I agree with Dianne. I would also rescue every animal I could. I can only do so much.
You are an angel
Love Claudie

So sorry to hear about Luke. It's hard isn't it. I hear last night of a friend I had lost touch with who had to put her bloodhound Homer down, because he was having seisures and renal failure. He was Beau's age and looked identical! Poor baby.

Dotty, however is precious. g

Dottie and Zeus are so cute! It is heartbreaking not to be able to save them all.

Love all the photos of your babies! That Dottie is a cutie pie, I'm so glad she is doing good!!

I feel the same way as many. I wish I could save them all. I would have a house full if my husband would agree to it. I would love to have a big farm to be able to take in abandoned animals.

Bubblesknits said...

I agree with Dianne, too.

Dottie's a cutie!

What a great post. It's great when you can save just one. Can't win all the fights but when you do it's that much sweeter. As you can tell I'm catching up! Sorry. :)
