Quote of the Day
“I work hard so that my dogs can have a better life.” ~ unknown
Labor Day! It’s finally here! Woohoo!!!
A day off work, permission to rest, play, and enjoy life to the fullest without the worries of work.
Hurricane Harvey hit hard! Yet from the floods arose countless heroes!
During a natural disaster, animals are often abandoned, and pets ripped away from their owners. Yet amidst the chaos of Hurricane Harvey, countless men and women weren’t going to leave their pets (or anyone’s pets) behind.
All creatures great and small matter.
“No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted”~ Aesop
The internet is packed with incredible videos and photos of people rescuing all sorts of animals (dogs, cats, horses, cattle . . .) during Hurricane Harvey. In this short blog post I’d like to share a few of those videos to highlight these heroes.

Hey there friends! I’m so excited to share what I learned about God while I was walking my dog!
Rather than writing a long blog post, I decided to record my story. This way you’ll get to meet my adorable Standard Poodle. It was my first “Facebook Live” recording with my dog
Why am I discouraged? Why is my heart so sad? I will put my hope in God! I will praise him again–my Savior and my God! Psalm 43:5
Sometimes we just need a little word of encouragement to help us on our way. I pray this Bible verse and comforting image of my Cavalier King Charles Spaniel will be a ray of sunshine for your day. There’s just something so special about the loving gaze of my dogs. It’s as if God is speaking through them saying,
I love you dear child. I am with you. I will never leave you nor forsake you.
“I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” —Matthew 28:20
May hope, healing, and happiness be yours!
Shock, disbelief, and fear gripped my heart! I watched helplessly as our house filled with smoke knowing that my dogs were still inside.
Never was the Human-Canine Bond more evident than when I experienced a house fire! My husband had been relocated and was house hunting in another state, so I found myself all alone. Well, not really. I had my dogs! The story I’m about to share reaffirmed how incredibly powerful the human-canine bond is in helping people deal with stressful events.
Dogs are good for our health! Each time I hug my dogs I feel more hopeful, happier, and healthier!
