LOL...yeah, he's fine today. I really have to watch him..I'm used to "normal" sized puppies..he is so big he can eat a lot of stuff!! Ha ha ha...it's all good.

Smile Great day for animals....

I had the best day today! It is Rob's day off, so that's good. We went to Pet Supplies Plus to get our dog's food, and the shelter adoption van was there. I went to say hello to my friend, the director of the shelter to let her know how Leo is doing, and right as I walked up there a young couple was adopting Leo's sister, Carly!! My timing could not have been better...I am so excited to know she has a home now too, and that I got to witness it. She recognized me too, and came over for hugs and kisses. Then, when we went into the pet store of course I had to check out the bettas. All of the employees there know me now, and we usually chat. Well, the female cashier who I had a spat with over betta care is still working there..however, the betta on the counter is in a 1g kritter keeper now, not a glass. The cashier recognized me as I was discussing bettas with another employee she says, "Oooh, your the "betta lady" Lol...I was talking about a nice dragon scale they have there and one of the employees decided to purchase him, another animal getting a home. The best part was when we got to the car and hubby told me that the girl purchasing the betta had said she needed to get a tank/container for him, and the girl who I had told off about bettas said to her, "Don't get one of those", and pointed to the glass that previously held the betta I had defended! LOL..I can't save them all, but it's nice to know I am making a difference in educating. It was a good day in the animal rescue world..yup!

It's a nice feeling to know that you're making a difference. How exciting that Leo 's sister got a home! I walked to Petsmart today and saw all the dogs and cats up for adoption. Poor things. I hope they all get homes.

Yeah, our local shelter sets up at PSP every two weeks...that is how we found our second dog Casey too~ I'm just so glad that my prayers were answered. I felt so bad leaving Carly there when we got Leo...but, now I can rest my heart knowing she got a home...I bet she feels awesome tonight..in a real house and not in the shelter...lol, I'm gonna cry from happiness just thinkin' about it!

Surf is UP! Thanks to Isaac the waves here are up to 7 feet...time to grab my boogie board, sun block and a snack and head to the island! I need to get out of the house. I love my four legged and fin bearing family, but I need a break! Have a great Sunday everyone!

Thanks...sorry to say I didn't get there today...so much to do around the house, but it's cool..it was kinda dangerous anyway. I went out body boarding during Tropical Storm Fay when the waves were 12 feet! It was crazy..but, fun!
