Jolly Holly, Jack and Jill

Well, tis the season after all......and Jill and I were NOT going to let the fun times slip by we headed out on a mini-h0liday adventure. You see, travelin' with your pet is not ALWAYS about being on the road...why sometimes the dog-dandiest times can be had right in your own back yard!

And so it was on this little holiday jaunt...right down the road to our very own Balloon Museum right here in Albuquerque. And WHOO-WEE were they dressed up for the holidays or what! You are SURE to find some high-flyin' fun there!
Here we are ready to take to the skies in this hot air balloon......ah well maybe not today. There's no balloon over the basket....but a totally fab photo op. Go ahead and snap the wait...gotta get my smile on straight......hey I wasn't ready for the CHEESE part yet!...ah well. Handsome Jack anyway you call it..tongue in or out! What can I say. I think I'm goin' nuts...Is this a giant NUTCRACKER or what!?! How's this for my profile shot?
And what holiday visit would not be complete without a close-up visit with Santa Santa Paws. Looks to me like he's gettin' ready to hit the skies soon for the Big Night flight....Christmas Eve.

I DO hope you have been good little girls and boys. Wouldn't want Santa to pass by your house!!!!! He's a-visitin' me FOR SURE! I made sure I was good in his's I can get MY presents! Some doggie treats, a few squeaky toys..... Yep Santy Paws...I've been a good little dog this year...I dog-guarantee!

Merry Christmas Everyone!

I Rescued A Human Today

Author:Janine Allen CPDT

Her eyes met mine as she walked down the corridor peering apprehensively into the
kennels. I felt her need instantly and knew I had to help her. I wagged my tail, not too exuberantly, so she wouldn't be afraid.

As she stopped at my kennel I blocked her view from a little accident I had in the back of my cage. I didn't want her to know that I hadn't been walked today. Sometimes the shelter keepers get too busy and I didn't want her to think poorly of them.

As she read my kennel card I hoped that she wouldn't feel sad about my past. I only have the future to look forward to and want to make a difference in someone's life. She got down on her knees and made little kissy sounds at me.

I shoved my shoulder and side of my head up against the bars to comfort her.

Gentle fingertips caressed my neck; she was desperate for companionship. A tear fell down her cheek and I raised my paw to assure her that all would be well.

Soon my kennel door opened and her smile was so bright that I instantly jumped into her arms. I would promise to keep her safe. I would promise to always be by her side. I would promise to do everything I could to see that radiant smile and sparkle in her eyes. I was so fortunate that she came down my corridor. So many more are out there who haven't walked the corridors. So many more to be saved. At least I could save one.

I rescued a human today.
