Hello, Milo!


Many of us correctly guessed that Sue's big news was a new dog. Please join me in welcoming Milo to their household! He's a big, beautiful boy, and I know they're all going to be very happy together. Sue adopted Milo from a rescue, and I have to give a shout out to all the rescues out there. Most breeds have at least a regional rescue, covering a few states. Yes, puppies are cute, but these more mature boys and girls need good homes and are often easier to welcome into a household than a needy little puppy (with a tiny bladder, short attention span, etc.) I hope if/when you're in the market for another pet, you'll consider adopting from a rescue. They do sometimes have puppies and/or young adult dogs too!
I'd also like to thank those of you participating in my little contest. I'll have the random number generator pick a winner this evening. I'd also like to thank everyone for the birthday wishes. Anne spread the word, and all of the good wishes are heartily appreciated.

Yes, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

What did you do on your special day?

What?? I missed your birthday? Oh, I am so sorry. Happiest of birthdays and many more to come. And thank you so much for welcoming Milo and discussing Rescue. They truly do God's work, and these dogs are so appreciative. Best thing we ever did.

Thanks for using your blog to speak out on behalf of all of our friends in fur who are looking for their forever homes.

If you happened to be in my town for a non-virtual vacation, I would have to take you to visit a couple of the animal organizations I volunteer with. My city is getting ready to start doing some wonderful things for homeless animals. Not your typical touristy thing to do, but perhaps interesting for a dog-lover!

I love animal rescue and find that is the only place to get your next pets. I do hope Sue and her family will be happy with Milo. She is gorgeous!

I'm a big fan of animal rescue! Almost all of my parents' seven cats came from the SPCA or other animal rescue. And when John and I have a house one day, we plan on getting a dog from a local rescue. I'm more opt to get an older dog than a puppy anyway!
