Wonderful Wednesday

If this doesn’t make your Wednesday wonderful, nothing will!!!!


An Amazing Tribute to an Amazing Dog

This video and the attached text was posted on YouTube by dolphinDog.  I hope it touches you as it did me…..

This is the true story of a dog who loves dolphins, a little fluffy loving dog who I named Grizzly. One day Grizzly and I found a little baby Sea Lion sick and near death on the rocks. The local animal rehab place said they could not take her and to let her die ( they called it “mother nature”), so I took the dying Sea Lion home and nursed her back to health. My puppy dog Grizzly lived and loved the Sea Lion.

Once the Sea Lion got well we released her again into the wild, Grizzly thought for sure that HE must be a sea lion also. He lived his entire life loving Dolphins, Sea Lions, Whales and loving me.

This video is a tribute to the friend that God gave to me. Grizzly the dolphin dog. He loved dolphins and dolphins loved him. It is hard to explain. Science will explain away love. Love is never in the ingredient. They say we came from Apes and that the world is just a big accident.

But Love is in Gods ingredient. Grizzly recently passed away at the age of 18, he swam with dolphins on his last day. I wait for that day when Grizzly will once again jump into my arms. I wait for that day when we will all be in the presence of a Loving God. Thank you Jesus for taking away the sin of the world……….


Kassie Speaks!

Kassie on couch2Woohoo!  Mom asked me to write another article, so thought I’d tell you about our other trip.  It was pretty amazing!  I got to see a lot of really neat things!  There also were some things that weren’t quite so fun, but I’m passed all that now [yeah, right!]

Anyway, let me tell you about it…

The first day we drove to Dallas with Mom’s really good friend.  They had plans to go to something called a musical.  They said it was called Wicked.  I guess it must have been pretty good, cause they were really happy when they got back!

The next day, Mom and I drove to Louisville, Kentucky.  Actually, Mom drove and I rode.  Mom made me sit in the back seat with a special set belt.  That was OK, though, cause that way I had plenty of space to stretch out and sleep. Continue reading

Today is Amelia Earhart Day

Courage never hesitates

Amelia’s pet dog, James Ferocious was a constant childhood companion, smothered with affection by both her and her sister. James Ferocious, however, was not particularly friendly to strangers, so was kept tied to a shed. One afternoon, some neighborhood boys passed by the fence where James Ferocious was resting. As was his nature, James Ferocious instinctively growled at the boys. Noticing the animal was tied in place, the boys began to tease the dog. James Ferocious became infuriated, and upon breaking free from his dog chain, took after the perpetrators — the boys climbing atop the shed for safety.

Amelia was awakened from her afternoon nap by the commotion — hearing the boys’ screams for help, and her infuriated dog’s barking. Amelia’s father had taught her to “never run away,” and she instinctively acted upon it. Amelia immediately walked to the center of her yard and called to her dog, scolding him in a firm, loving voice for having tipped over his water dish. James Ferocious reluctantly came to Amelia’s outstretched hand, as she calmed the dog with her touch and led him inside the kitchen.

Even with her dog’s enraged state, Amelia firmly stood her ground and spoke in a confident tone — saving her from becoming the brunt of her pet’s rage. When asked later by her mother if she was scared, Amelia replied, “There wasn’t any time to be afraid.”

Chips Ahoy!

Chips closeupChips entered my life in the wee hours of a brisk, October night. I was happily snoozing away, when I was suddenly awakened by the frightened howls and whimpers of puppies! Someone (in their infinite irresponsibility) had dumped four puppies in my driveway. The poor babies were scared to death and totally confused by their new environment. I rushed outside in my bare feet and pajamas to collect the four. It was no easy task in the dark. They were all over the place—under the car, under the steps and generally attempting to not be caught by this human they didn’t know. I brought them into the house and once they had formed a puppy pile, they settled down and I went back to sleep.

In the morning, I realized it was going to now be my responsibility to find homes for these innocent little souls. After several days of trying, I was able to find a home for one. I took two to the Humane Association and I kept Chips. I chose Chips out of the four because she was the one that the other puppies seemed to pick on. She was the underdog and I had a soft spot for her. Continue reading

Kassie…the early months

Kassie3 Mom asked me to cover for her today.  She is trying to clean the house, so…. I decided I would tell you a little about my early months!

I was born in New York and when I was eight weeks old, my mom flew there and picked me up.  I spent my first night with my mom in a motel!  This is me on the bed!  I was afraid that it was going to be really scary, but it wasn’t!  Mom and I cuddled, and played.  She ordered something called Chinese food.  She wouldn’t let me have any, but it smelled good.  Mom got up during the night and let me go out to potty.  She only had to scold me one time for starting to chew on a cord.  I didn’t do it anymore.  We had a really good time!  baby Kassie on bed
