Even though mom didn't put up a tree this year, she has a nice picture of the one she put up last year.
Today is also a special day for me. One year ago today I was found by mom and dad in that corn field practically starving to death. Luckily these 2 wonderful people scooped me up, and took me into their home. Which is now mine!
So, in recognition of my 1 year anniversary at my wonderful house, and my birthday (this is the day mom decided to count since neither of us knows for sure when I was really born) I would like to share the following wish (which mom got off one of her husky groups):
On Christmas morning, I wish...
For every dog searching trash cans for breakfast, a full bowl with his name printed in bright letters.
For every dog who slept fitfully last night, chained in a frozen yard, a soft, warm bed with a person snoring gently nearby.
For every shelter dog, spending Christmas morning in a soiled run, a forever home, filled with sounds and smells of family.
For every "Christmas" puppy given today, a tolerant,caring owner who won't abandon you as you grow into a real dog.
For every ailing pet, enough money for your owner to pay the bills to make you well.
For every lost dog, a clear, safe road, and well marked path, to lead you home.
For every old and tired friend, a warm fire, and a soft bed, to ease your aches and pains.... and....
For every Dog at the Bridge, a moment when you know that you are remembered today, missed again, and loved forever.
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL MY FURRY FRIENDS AND THEIR LOVING, CARING HUMANS!
