"We long for an affection altogether ignorant of our faults. Heaven has accorded this to us in the uncritical canine attachment."
-- George Eliot

Hi my DWB family and dearest friends,

Things have been very depressing the last few days for DROH and Mommy has been dragging around the house feeling hopeless, so today I told her we needed to have a long talk about the stuff that makes us happy. So me and Mommy picked some of our favorite things like people, ME and my closest, in the flesh doggie friends and loves, FOOD and of course bluebonnets. Mommy is smiling as she loads these pictures and we hope they make you smile too.

The best folks in the world, the usual DROH volunteers, that do all the fundraisers together. The only ones missing are Mommy and Brinda, cause their always busy taking pictures.

Dogs, any kind, small dogs, big dogs, fat dogs, skinny dogs......... it doesn't matter.........a home isn't a home without a dog!

Bluebonnets and being a Texan in Texas.

My Tiger

My Tiger's Mommish, Daddish and sweet sister Lucky.

My little girl, Mona

Mommy's bestest foster ever, Bradley.

Mandy Jo, the feisty elderly one--She is available for adoption!

This pillow Mommy didn't bid enough for at the Spring Fling that matches the door mat on my front porch.

My Aunt Judy and Me!

George, Mommy's love, flanked by Brooklyn and Bandit. She loves them too but George gives the best Georgie fixes and looks like my brother, Toby.

Harley, who looks just like my brother, Jacks, but doesn't give kisses like Jacks used to.....Mommy misses those kisses.

Mona's ears blowing in the wind.

Food!! and I get the yummy breast cause Mommy forgot to buy some more treats when she went to the store this morning.

Oxtails in gravy......food of the Gods'.

No Mommy didn't cook any of this. When she went to the store this morning, there was a fundraiser in the parking lot that was selling "Home Cooked Soul Food". Mommy was in heaven since she doesn't have to cook this weekend and she never turns down oxtails.

Mission accomplished. Mommy's smiling again.

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

Glad your Mommy is smiling again. The pictures of food made us hungry so we are going to go find something to chow down on. We have never heard of Oxtails in gravy, but they looked yummy. ~AFSS

Dear Mona and your Mommy too,
I really enjoy reading your blog. I miss my little dogs who went to the Rainbow Bridge three years ago and as I work twelve-hour shifts it wouldn't be fair to adopt another little friend. But in 11 months and 7 days when I retire all that will change so in the meantime I will continue to look forward to your posts.
