Before & After


"When the Man woke up he said 'What is Wild Dog doing here?' And the Woman said, 'His name is not Wild Dog any more, but the First Friend, because he will be our friend for always and always..." -- Rudyard Kipling

Hi my friends,

Well it is that time of the year again, when the weather down here in my part of Texas, is fast approaching 100. We have already reached 95 several days already & it isn't even June yet. Today I got my summer haircut.....I am now naked as a jaybird BUT it sure is cool. So here are my before and after pictures.
What do you think.....bald or shaggy?

This was me, this morning, before the Mommy took me to Pets Mart and deserted me there all day. But Ms Gina took real good care of me......I love her.

Before you see the new me, the Mommy made an observation last night about my toys and my kitchen bed. The Mommy isn't making me stay behind the doggie gate anymore, except when my Uncle Sonny comes to clean the house once a week....he's retired and likes to have a little spending he comes & cleans my house but actually he comes to play with his favorite niece, ME.
She noticed that even though I don't stay in the kitchen anymore, while she is at work, my toys are always in my kitchen bed (where are busted dishwasher used to be) before I go to bed at night. Just who is putting my toys away? What a Doofuss!! She isn't so it's got to be me!! I have to make sure that all my toys are accounted for before bedtime, don't I? She said I am strange but I told her NO, I just make sure she hasn't thrown any of my stuff away.

The new Me. I kinda like it but when the winter comes back....I want all my hair back!!!

Before we show you a little video of me and the one hibiscus, but lots of buds, in our yard, the Mommy wants to say something about today's quote. Besides the quote that is always on our blog about rescue, this one is a favorite of hers because it says it all. She saw a program one time about the relationship between MAN & DOG. It showed a man & a dog walking along a beach together, and it said that when GOD created animals he separated man from the beasts but the dog crossed over the line to love and serve mankind. It was very powerful, the Mommy said & makes her cry when she thinks about it. Was she dreaming or did anybody else ever see or hear this?
Love you all.....Mona
