THE PLEDGE FOR LIFE
I care about animals.
I want to help bring about an end to the homeless animal tragedy.
I believe that the euthanasia of millions of animals in shelters every
year is an unacceptable solution to this tragedy.....
And I understand that my actions have a direct effect,
and that my actions can create change.
I PLEDGE TO NEVER CAUSE AN ANIMAL TO BE IN AN ANIMAL SHELTER
....to understand the commitment of living with a companion animal
....to be ready and willing to accept that commitment
before I bring an animal into my home and my family.
....to educate myself so that I can make a good match when choosing
an animal, and then to save a life by adopting a homeless animal
from a shelter, rescue group, or from the street.
....to protect my companions from becoming lost
by keeping them safely confined and wearing current
identification at all times.
....to not contribute to overpopulation,
by spaying and neutering my companion animals.
....to provide my companion animals with the basics of food and
shelter and medical care, and to provide them with the love and
companionship they need to be happy.
....to include my companion animals as part of my family,
to socialize them so that they are comfortable in human society,
to train them so that they will be safe and be good citizens.
....to work through problems with my companions,
and to include them in my own life changes.
....to always demonstrate respectful, loving and responsible companion
animal care so that others may learn from my example and
want to do the same.
I make this pledge to the animals,
between them and me,
to the animals I know, and the ones I may never see,
to the animals in my home, and the ones in our shelters
and on our streets,
to the animals here, and the ones yet to come.
I make this pledge to honor their love and companionship,
to acknowledge their intrinsic value,
to respect them as living beings who carry the same precious
spark of life that I myself do.
I understand that the solutions are in my hands.
I pledge to use those solutions, and in doing so, to begin to create a
community and society that shows compassion, love, and respect for
those who cannot speak for themselves.
I make this pledge with love and hope.

Hi Doggies, Winnie blogging here,
We were so busy on Family Friday that we couldn't even post, so I'm gonna post today for Family Friday even though it's Saturday.
Well there has been doggies , doggies, doggies everywhere here lately! My Foster Momma is very busy with New Hope Dog Rescue and so we had 2 more dogs staying with us for awhile. That made a total of 6 of us doggies in the house (and one was a puppy). Things were really busy around here. The 2 other foster doggies came in from a town about 2 hours away from here and were staying with us until they each went to their new foster homes.
Sheena only stayed with us for the day. She is a Border Collie cross who is BALL- CRAZY !!! She is actually bigger than she looks in this picture, but she is quite a bit smaller than the average Border Collie.
The other doggie was a puppy who was here for 4 days, until her new foster home people could come and pick her up. Her name is Lily and she was only 3 months old. Foster Momma thinks she is a real cutie. What do you think?

Buddy blogging here. Just thought I would show you some cool pictures from when we went swimming at Bays Waterpaws Canine Aquatic Center which is a special doggie swimming pool in our city. Momma is taking us there to swim 'cause she wants us to be more comfortable swimming.
So here are some pictures.
And here is proof that I don't need a lifejacket to go swimming!
I look very serious about this swimming stuff!

In response to Ernest's query ( see comments from last post) about a Caesar, Blue's dislike of clamato and to all other non-Canadians who may never have heard of such a thing, we have decided to post the answers to these very important questions.
1. What is a Caesar?
A Caesar is a very popular cocktail in Canada and in fact according to Wikipedia is often called Canada's official cocktail. It is made of Clamato juice, vodka, Worcestershire sauce, Tabasco sauce over ice and served in a glass rimmed with celerly salt and garnished with a stick of celery and a slice of lime. It was originally invented in 1969 in Calgary , Alberta, Canada by a bartender named Walter Chell for the opening of a new restarant at The Westin. The original Caesar was made of tomato juice and mashed clams. Clamato juice was then released shortly afterwards by the American Mott's company. A version without vodka is called a"Virgin Caesar".
2. How is a Caesar made?
Well here is the recipe for the Classic Caesar.
Ingredients: • 5 oz Mott's Clamato • 1-1/2 oz vodka • 1/2 tsp hot sauce • 1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce • salt and pepper to taste
Mixing Instructions:Rim a glass with lime juice and celery or seasoning salt. Fill glass with ice and add above ingredients, stir to mix. Garnish with a celery stalk and a lime wedge. Enjoy!!

Hi Doggies, did you know that more pet food has been recalled due to Samonella?
Check out this link http://www.fda.gov/cvm/petfoods.htm#newsreleases
Recalled Aug 25/07-
Krasdale Gravy dry dog food
Red Flannel Large Breed Adult Formula dry dog food
Momma is very upset at those dog food manufacturer's for not making dog food that is safe for us doggies to eat. She has now changed us to a premium brand dog food called Orijen that is made fairly close to here. It has human grade ingredients made from locally produced chicken, fish, and eggs. Of course she always also gives us leftovers from her supper too! Yummy!

Nikki here reporting on Family Friday and guess what happened? Momma came home from work tonight and once she walked in the door she said" Who pooped in the house?"
I guess she could smell it. Well lucky me- Momma knew it couldn't be me 'cause I was locked in my crate. and there it was on the rug a BIG PILE OF POOP!
Casper was it you?
