Make Yourself At Home, Peanut

I could get used to this


NOW IS THE TIME! If you are thinking of bringing a dog into your life.

Because of the rise in housing foreclosures, there have been a huge number of dogs dropped off at shelters after closing and abandoned at the side of the road. Many are healthy dogs, beautiful dogs, dogs with owners that just didn't know what do to with them in these desperate times.

Rescue organizations are in dire need of foster families and families to adopt. Many family pets are being kept in the shelter because there's just not enough foster homes in which to place them. We are on our third rescue and all have been great.

Please consider adopting before buying from a store or a breeder. There are so many amazing dogs that need homes. Not only will you save a life, you'll save yourself hundreds or thousands of dollars!

What are you doing to me?? Andy just walked into the kitchen and found me on

We do not need another living being in this house. Our Maddie-dog would be horrified! And yet, I see these little faces!

I know I could talk him into it if I really wanted it. Certainly cheaper (and lower maintenance) than a third child...

We adopted four danes off of petfinder. Geriatric danes, loved every minute of it.

Fostered greyhounds for a really long time, not for everyone but very rewarding.

We currently have seven cats, all rescued.

Hell, even our last four kids are out of rescue (all foster kids) :)

Good post, nice job sharing the word.
