Ha! Nothing like starting the week with a literary joke. It hasn’t been long since I last reread this, so maybe it’s time to revisit an old friend this way.


In my “spare time.”

And I think it’s this girl. I was able to see beautiful breezy EZ for the first time in over a year, and she’s doing great. In the winter she loves the snow, and all year long, she loves her dad, who doesn’t spoil her AT ALL.

Also, this was my absolute favorite bumper sticker I saw on the trip as we were leaving Denver.

Current Photo Friday theme: Golden

This twelve-plus-foot tall bust of Lincoln, resting on a 30-foot tall granite pedestal, is sculpted of bronze but gleams golden on the highway outside Laramie, Wyoming.

Sad Eyes

These goofballs, with their Margaret Keane eyes. Big dogs on transport day like to turn their butts to my camera because I’m about the least interesting thing happening. But puppies turn on the pathos, like they are having the worst morning ever. In truth, once in their crates on the vans, most puppies either opt for a nice nap or they transform into hilarious little miscreants, playing tug of war or boxing with each other, shredding their puppy pads, or otherwise creating mayhem. The guilt-inducing portraits are just another part of their charm.

You can go here to see all of the Rescued Pets Movement dogs and cats who traveled in June. And I just joined RPM’s 2016 Saving Pets Challenge. If you want to make a donation to my team, the link is here!

Only occasionally does it strike me that I wasn’t actually made in America.
