"If you have been looking for love in all the wrong places try the animal shelter, as the best friend you could ever have is waiting there just for you."
My friend Sara, sent me this quote on FB this morning......and of course I shared it. I know what a friend an animal can be.....you can tell them anything and everything and they will never tell......you can have the worst day of your life, and they will still love you.......you can be gone five minutes or five days and they are always glad to see you( talking dogs here, because the cats I have had in the past never knew I was gone).......a pet will love you when you are at your worst.....they don't care what you look like......they remind you that it really is all about love, food, and shelter.
I have been lucky to have been chosen by really charismatic loving dogs, as I type this....Calliou
the wacky collie just stuck his nose in my face.....and honestly, if I ever won the lottery......I'd probably go to the local shelter, get all the critters and bring them home.
I am thankful for all those best friends that I have had through the years, yes my heart has been broken by their passing, but the love they gave was worth the pain. It is so quiet around our house these days, only two dogs now.......but I am certain that there is another one out there somewhere just waiting to find our house.
