A Drooly Sad Time . . .

I am not going to wear my Santa hat this week
in respect to the sad events
that affected some furry friends
and the devastation in my island . . .

My furry friends the Pittie Pack from the USA
lost their home in a fire
and with it some of their dogs.
Keeper was distraught
since her friend lost their dogs in Alabang
also in a fire just this summer. . . .

And this weekend a storm hit the southern part of my island
and killed people and animals in a flash flood!
Our country has always been hit by storms
but lately, the damage has been severe
and Keeper kept praying for us. . .
Keeper said that we must always be prepared
because our planet is old and sick . . .

And Keeper read the sad news to me
of the sad rescue of pitbulls in Cavite
that were used for dogfighting by foreigners.

When I hear sad news like these
I run to Keeper in alarm!

. . . and I am comforted.

Tragedies happen for a reason
and we must always hang on to each other
so we can understand why things happen
and know that there is somebody
always willing to help and comfort us . . .

And Keeper will again tell me stories of survival,
of people and animals hanging on
even in the most trying of times . . .

If you know anybody in pain
or sick, or lonely, or afraid
please offer your hand
and give comfort NOW!

And this, Lisa, is my gift to the senior citizens party this week.
I am sure I am the only dog who contributed a gift for them!

And here are my contribution for:

His name is Wormsy and he is a millipede.
He is harmless and takes care of the soil.

This is his Journal, Ashley:

And this is Wormsy's destination:
. . . he loves to cuddle with my Popsy.

My window to the world is our gate.
My house has curtains because I don't want anybody peeking while I sleep.

Keeper and my Popsy in happier times.
Keeper said it is Ok to be sad
but it is more Ok if we extend our hands and paws
and offer them to those who needs it.

We are doing that now.
As I'm sure most of you are doing it also
because all of the cards you sent us
has made this holiday season
special, warm and loved.
Thank you everybody and everfurries!
I will mention and show all of your cards someday.
I also hope you got our holiday cards as well.

Stay warm
stay safe
and no matter how far you are
you are always in our thoughts
and we are just a holler away!

I love you all drooly. . .
