"If you can't decide between a shepherd, a setter, or a poodle, get them all ... adopt a mutt!"

Hi friends,

We all know how my Mommy feels about rescue and adoption, right? Did you know that it is a fact that more homeless dogs in Houston die in the streets during the summer because of the heat and lack of water than any other time of the year . Well it's true. So Mommy found some interesting points to think about.

Adopt a dog if........

If you want someone who will eat whatever you put in front of him
and never say its not quite as good as his mother's

....then adopt a dog.

If you want someone always willing to go out, at any hour,
for as long and wherever you want
.... then adopt a dog.

If you want someone who will never touch the remote, doesn't care
about football, and can sit next to you as you watch romantic movies

....then adopt a dog.

If you want someone who is content to get on your bed just to
warm your feet and whom you can push off if he snores

.... then adopt a dog

If you want someone who never criticizes what you do, doesn't care
if you are pretty or ugly, fat or thin, young or old, who acts as if
every word you say is especially worthy of listening to, and loves
you unconditionally, perpetually
.... then adopt a dog

If you would like the satisfaction of getting a homeless dog off the streets or out of a "will kill" shelter.

.... then adopt a dog........Please!!

Have a wonderful weekend and stay out of the 100 plus degree heat like it is here in Houston.

Love, kisses and {{{huggies}}} to all.....Mona

I hope you have fun visiting your friends. I think it would be fun to chase a rabbit, but if we catch him could we just play with him??

licks and sniffs, Sasha

Its me again, I would be very proud if you want to copy my sleepy picture and use it. My Mom and I love rescue animals, without it I don't want to think about where I would be right now. "Big shiverrrrrrrrrr"

licks and sniffs, Sasha

Mona, that is a great post and I agree. It has been really hot here too...heat index was 115 all this past week. And Daddy works outside so he was pretty tired when he got home from work every day. Can't wait to see the sleepy dog post...we have lots of pics if you need more.
Love and hugs,

We just feel so sorry for doggies that don't ever get any A/C and don't have enough water to drink. That is a very dangerous mix here in Houston!

And that is SO true about all us doggies! We're the best!
