It’s simple: Write a post, help a dog.

                                  
Pedigree® is sponsoring an Adoption Drive – they are donating a bowl of dog food for every "like" they get on their facebook page. If you go here and "like" them, one more shelter dog will get a bowl of food. But that's not all.

For every blog that mentions the Adoption Drive between Sept. 16 through Sunday, Sept. 19, Pedigree® will donate a 20-lb. bag of food to a shelter. If you've got a blog, there's still time to write a post and help a dog. Enter the link to your blog post here to participate. ~The 7MSN Ranch

I suspect I'm preaching to the choir here, but . . . People! Rescue dogs are where it's at! 
Marly, who came to me through Petfinder.com and a good friend who poked at me until I decided that yes, maybe I did need her, was beautiful, and brave, and . . . what a great nanny dog!  There are parts of Marly's Back-Story here.


Shelters and rescues are overflowing with Good Dogs, waitingwaitingwaiting for Their Humans to come and take them Home, where they can grow into The Best Dogs Ever.  I believe that the lucky ones that get that chance . . . well, they just never forget their good fortune.
I'm talking myself into browsing Petfinder again....
Would three dogs again really be too much for me?
In the meantime, here's my effort to help the ones who still wait.

Thanks for participating, June. I couldn't agree more - rescue dogs, cats...burros...are definitely the way to go.

I agree June that if you are going to get a dog, get a Rescue One.... Very good post---and very well written...
Hugs,
Betsy

All of my animals have been rescues...including my first rabbit who came from a pet store. Someone else had 'purchased' him and later 'returned' him for reasons unknown. I got his furry butt out of there and he spent the next 8 years with me.
