I have to give them equal time since I am always blogging about cats, which is actually one reason why this DOG (below) appears on this blog.
We were going to Coles Carpets and made some passing joke about how Coles should be donating to the cats at the Animal Shelter, since it is our last cat, Bailey, who is giving them the business of supplying new carpet for us. Yes, we are just about at the joking stage by now!
We parked the car and walked into the store and this is what we saw!
Note the card around his neck, below.
This is the same place where I volunteer among the cats.
Then I got this flyer below, from the shelter, in my e-mail soon after we got home.
Note the part that is circled and starred.
(only in California, yes?)
If we call something a DOG's DINNER we usually mean it in an uncomplimentary way (at least we did when I lived in England). But this ad confirmed my decision to feature DOG on ABC Wednesday, especially because I wanted an excuse to feature the book (below) on my blog.
This is a volume I get from Readers' Digest every couple of months called Select Editions. It contains four individual books.
One of the stories in this volume is called "A DOG'S PURPOSE"
by W. Bruce Cameron
I have to tell you that this is the BEST animal story I have EVER read. In general, I don't usually like animal stories, they are just too much of a tear jerker. I feel the same about animal movies-- even Lassie -- especially Lassie--movies. But, I'm telling you that if you like DOGS at all you MUST read this book. I'm sure it is in the Library. It is so upbeat with a great plot and just a very satisfying reading. Couldn't guess how the ending would turn out. I read a lot of books in a year, but this one just has to top the list -- not because it is a literary masterpiece, but because the author has captured the absolute essence of --
well, -- doggie-dom. I loved every word!
And now, how could I do a 'D' page and not have DAFFODILS on it? So obvious, but so full of the promise of spring.
They have been for sale at Vons for the past two weeks.
Have a Happy Spring and take your doggie pals for a long walk in the sunshine.
