Turn up your volume and listen to my tunes..wooooof!

I am dog. I believe in unconditional love. I do not settle for infatuation or puppy love. I believe in true love to the end. I am a life-long lover who will lie at your feet, on the bed, by your chair, at your side. I am dog. I insist on your love. I will stay on a grave of a lover until my end. I believe in commitment. When we have chosen each other, I will be there for you with plenty. Out of my heart flows life and love. You fill my life with abundance and I am fulfilled. Unconditional love is the highest gift. I am committed to love.

Saturday Happenings

Kirby here-
Well yesterday, my mom helped Harbor Humane Society at an adoption event and she was able to take her neice Emily along. If you have followed my blog long enough, you will know that Emily is almost 12 years old, raised money all on her own for the dogs and cats at Harbor Humane Society, and has the biggest heart for shelter animlas. In fact when she grows up she wants to run her own shelter. So mom thought it would be a great idea to get Emily involved with some adoption events with Harbor. Mom and Emily were given the dog Lola for the day. Here is a picture of Lola:Isn't she beautiful! She's an australian shepherd/collie/ and who knows what mix! Mom and Emily walked Lola around practicing "heel" "wait" and "sit". Lola loved all the attention and did very well. She absolutely loved to be petted and loved all the kids! Mom taught Emily how to get Lola to sit, wait, and heel and Em caught on real quick too! Here is a pic of Emily, her brother and sister and Lola:

Mom and Emily also helped train another dog. Abbie is a lab mix, and this was her first adoption event. Abbie was a tad hyper and very pully on the leash. So mom used a prong collar on Abbie and her and Emily took her around the store and outside for awhile. Abbie responded very well on the collar and was learning how to heel really good! Emily even worked with her and Abbie listened to her too! Here is a picture of Abbie:They had a some applications filled out while they were there and one was on Lola! So mom and Em are hoping and praying that Lola will be going to her forever home very soon! Mom absolutely loves doing adoption events! She loves to work with the dogs and tell people all about them. Now she discovered she loves sharing these events with Emily and hopes to be able to do more with her. I hope so too! Emily has her own blog that she started. Emily loves to learn about animals and uses this blog to write about all she is learning. She also uses it to tell funny stories and talk about her own rescued pets. She is also learning to type so all the typing is hers. If you'd like stop by and check it out. She is a young girl that knows what she wants to do and is trying gain as much knowledge and experience as she can! Mom and I are very proud we are of her!

So I'm sure you were wondering what I was up too while mom was gone yesterday...yep snoozing in sun puddles!Woof!



  1. What wonderful work your human does, Kirby!! Those doggies are lucky to have people like your human help them. I hope Lola & Abby find good homes soon!

    Kudos to your mom for everything she's doing to help doggers in need!
