Sheesh, it's about time you got off your butt and registered, girl!
SirIsaacNewton and I have been friends and co-workers for a long time ... what, almost ten years now? We were also on the board of directors of the local humane society together for a time.
It seems that one of us, or both, usually has a rescue dog at any given time. I seem to be the one, though, that is always talking her into taking some homeless critter that ended up at my house. Over the years, I've convinced her that she needed a homeless tarantula, a couple of rats, a dog, a 55 gallon fish tank, a baby starling ... hmmm ... and she still speaks to me.
"We give dogs the time we can spare, the space we can spare and the love we can spare. And in return, dogs give us their all. It's the best deal man has ever made" - M. Facklam
"We are raised to honor all the wrong explorers and discoverers - thieves planting flags, murderers carrying crosses. Let us at last praise the colonizers of dreams."- P.S. Beagle
"All that is gold does not glitter, Not all those who wander are lost; The old that is strong does not wither, Deep roots are not reached by the frost. From the ashes a fire shall be woken, A light from the shadows shall spring; Renewed shall be blade that was broken, The crownless again shall be king." - J.R.R. Tolkien
