An important day

Ten years ago today, we received a wonderful gift. The gift gave himself to us. His name was to be Dodger, and he walked up to me on a Brooklyn sidewalk, skinny, hungry, dirty and looking to share his love with people who would care for him. We gave him what we needed, but we got the better part of the deal.



Thank you, Dodge, for all the years of love and fun. I hope you have many years left to share with us!

I love this video.

A friend of a friend took in a stray puppy in China. The military guard watching the post said "even a dog can be born under a lucky star." The sentiment is such a nice one, don't you think?

Dodger must have been born under a lucky star too. :)

Thanks, Angie, but I feel pretty lucky, too!

That's fantastic Jess, such a great video. Almost brought a tear to my eye (I said 'almost')

Jess said...

Thanks, Al. And long time, no see. Just seeing that you commented made me smile!

I've been neglecting my blog quite badly (damn you, Facebook). I'm going to try to remedy that situation!

I have the very same issue!
