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

For me they are the role model for being alive.

Meet Rain - an enviromentally conscious cattle dog

At only 7 months old, Rain is passionate about recycling. She tried, for hours, to encourage the other dogs to recycle with her.

Dog Foster Mom has been looking for a home for Ziggy for over a year, now.
She has entered Ziggy in a contest that could, potentially, lead him to his happily ever after home. Please take a minute to vote for Ziggy

Stumpy and I are both flattered an honored to be considered by Carny Dog, aka Stella, to have the makings and potential of a true Carny Dog. Stella honored Stumpy by naming her this week's choice for "Would've made a great carny dog!"

Miss Mayzie is celebrating her blogaversary in a very special way, TODAY!!!!Help shelter dogs and celebrate Mayzie's 1st year of blogging by leaving a comment on her blog!!!

Stumpy would make a great carny dog!! Good job to Rain for recycling. Riley does the opposite...she pulls jugs, bottles, cartons, and boxes out of the recycle bin to go chew on. Good thing there are dogs like Rain out there that are recycling! Hope you all are having a ton of fun out RVing!

Awesome! I will have to check out Carny Dog's site.

This is such a cute video. What a strong social conscience this doggy has. Better than most humans for sure!

It's funny how much dogs like plastic containers. Indy will carry and crunch and plastic water bottle as though it's the most fascinating toy on earth. Years ago, a friend had Irish Wolfhounds. Her dogs played with gallon sized milk jugs!

Hi, hi! I'm awfully sorry I haven't been by in a few days but gosh, has it ever been ker-azy at my house with that Commentathon Pawty. Thank you EVER so much for telling everybuddy about it and for stopping by. It just wouldn't have been the same without you!

And good for Rain! She is a super duper recyclin' queen and a Most Wonderful example for the rest of us.

Oh, and I've voted for Ziggy like 100 times now. Wouldn't it be terrific if he won AND found a new home?

And lastly, Stumpy woulda made a super duper amazing Carny dog, that's for sure. She coulda run a Wobbler game!

Wiggles & WAgs,

Thanks for asking for votes for Ziggy!! And it's good to see such environmentally conscious dogs out there. Ziggy's pretty good about recycling plastic items two and three times over - looks like Rain has learned well also!
