"Forever Friends for Free"

Being a BIG animal lover, one of my customers, Mary Striley, e-mailed me a poster about something totally cool that is happening at the OC Animal Shelter this Saturday, March 28th, from 10am to 5pm. They are sponsoring a "Forever Friends for Free" animal adoption day!! I'm such an animal lover and every "furry friend" I have in my home, and I DO have too many, were a rescue. Above is Kona and Fluffy, my office assistants. You know animals that are rescued, ALWAYS, somehow know that and the love they give back is just awesome. I'm kind of glad I'm working this Saturday because I know if I wasn't I would be right down there bringing home some more furry friends to join my family. I think what is especially important right now is to remember the shelters are over flowing with beautiful cats and dogs because people have lost their homes and can no longer keep them. These are the things about todays world that break my heart. I still remember this song from that movie in the the 70's. .. "Bless the beast and the children, they have no voice, they have no choice". So, PLEASE, before going out and buying some expensive pet, go to the shelters. These furry friends need homes, and I can vouch for that as Kona and Fluffy are asisting me in writing this on their behalf as well. And thanks Mary for not letting me know about this event, but for having such a big heart!!

Both our beloved dogs are rescues. Beloved and spoiled are used interchangeably at our house!
