So I’ve Been Busy

OK,  so I haven’t exactly been burning up the dog-blog waves lately. It’s been a very busy year, and there’s all kinds of doggone good stuff happening, and that has taken my attention. We do a lot of reading and watching historical movies on the SatTV, and our local library has started with the movie DVDs, so the folks are watching a lot of stuff about Elizabeth I, who lived a long time ago, but likes dogs, I guess.

There are tons of dog stories and news items about dogs, so that takes a lot of time. We’ve a got a new First Dog, Bo Obama, and that’s neat. We just celebrated Dogs Rule 2009, and that’s a 5 Paw event.

Save the Dog, Hug the World

There’s a new book coming out November 1st, by Elise Lufkin, who also wrote Found Dogs and Second Chances. The new book is TO THE RESCUE: Found Dogs with a Mission. Today, we got a message about a photo-essay in Time Magazine called Strays to the Rescue and here’s a few of them loverly mugs:

Shes a big help to me. She picks up things that I drop and goes to the refrigerator and gets me a Coke. Shes good at opening containers; if she drops the lid, she picks it up. She can even open doors. Photo by Diane Walker

Aarroo! You guys know I don’t do plugs very often, but this one looks real good, since it tells stories about us rescue dogs, and how we know ‘zactly what to do in any situation. Hugs all around for this project. Check out the book and the organization at the Found Dogs website.

wayman_iconWell, that’s all for today, except that we always need to say, “Hug the Dog! Save the World!” 😉
