West is back home with us

Our Canine Companions for Independence puppy, West was released from the service dog program because he has mild dysplasia.  He is not in any pain but the rigors of being a service dog would take its toll on him over time.  So, he is back with us and is now our pet.  He no longer […]

94 to 2

Ninety-four bull shit comments, most don’t even make sense.  One genuine person, (Love you M) and one other comment that appears to be a real person.  So, again not motivated to dedicate hours to writing but continuing with living my life in a way to benefit not only myself but others as well. Our Canine […]

A national fast food chain which shall remain nameless in this blog is promoting a fundraising event that leaves me disappointed. I maintain that all giving is good but that some ways of giving are better. In this scenario, the franchise restaurant is asking the public to donate either $1.00 or $5.00 for a worthy […]

This is March?

No one expected March to be so cold and snowy.  This dreadful winter has both united and stressed us.  We agree that we’ve had enough and want this winter to be behind us, but some of us (no finger pointing) are getting a bit edgy.  We are tired of hunkering down, done being good sports […]
