I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love.

For me they are the role model for being alive.

Oh no I missed it. I'm gonna have to get mom back on blogging track. How am I suppose to help shelters if she's not blogging in a timely manner. She gets free kibble tweets and does it regularly-does that count?
