Dallas / Fort Worth Greyhounds in need of Love

Hello friends,
Margo from Margo's Junkin Journal posted something today that I can't help but share. Recently 28 greyhounds were rescued from an abusive situation. Their needs are great - rehabilitation, health care, love, trust and new homes. Please visit Margo's site and the Greyhound Rescue site and do whatever you can to help. Please!

Best wishes and high hopes to you all. And my God bless each of these beautiful animals.

Dear Dr. Howard Schneider

I'm sure you are a nice man and that the majority of the things you've done in your life have been for the good of those around you.

However.... I personally want to tell you that your evil robot creations aka self-checkout lanes at the supermarket are the most despicable things around. I don't personally have a desire to learn how to identify the product code so that I can weigh and enter my produce selections. I don't want to hear that bleeping robot tell me to return my items to the bagging center and least of all I don't want to wait in a queue while an attendant finds a moment from snacking on a Twix bar to assist me. I do actually have things to do Mr. Schneider.

And to that kid snacking on the Twix're lucky it was only a bag of peaches I threw at you to get your attention. I did have a watermellon in the basket.

My beloved Peanut

Saturday morning I had to make the hardest choice a pet owner can make - hang on to the hope that your fur baby will get better or let your fur baby go in peace. I chose to let her go but I miss her so badly.

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together...
