Another--Just A Dog

From time to time, people tell me, "lighten up, it's just a dog," or, "that's a lot of money for just a dog." They don't understand the distance traveled, the time spent, or the costs involved for "just a dog."

Some of my proudest moments have come about with "just a dog." Many hours have passed and my only company was "just a dog," but I did not once feel slighted.

Some of my saddest moments have been brought about by "just a dog," and in those days of darkness, the gentle touch of "just a dog" gave me comfort and reason to overcome the day.

If you, too, think it's "just a dog," then you will probably understand phases like "just a friend," "just a sunrise," or "just a promise." "Just a dog" brings into my life the very essence of friendship, trust, and pure unbridled joy. "Just a dog" brings out the compassion and patience that make me a better person.

Because of "just a dog" I will rise early, take long walks and look longingly to the future. So for me and folks like me, it's not "just a dog" but an embodiment of all the hopes and dreams of the future, the fond memories of the past, and the pure joy of the moment.

"Just a dog" brings out what's good in me and diverts my thoughts away from myself and the worries of the day.

I hope that someday they can understand that it's not "just a dog" but the thing that gives me humanity and keeps me from being "just a human."

So the next time you hear the phrase "just a dog." just smile, because they "just don't understand."

Just a dog. . .

The vet has not given up. He will be coming home tonight rehydrated, the poppy’s blessed gift in his veins, in a bottle of pills for later.

No betrayed look as he was led into the vet’s back room. We’d sat on the floor together, the doctor talking about humps and getting past them, and yet the final subject came up, was spoken at last. She can refer us to someone who will come to the house, when it is time.

All the walks delayed, all the impatient shoves when he blocked the hall, all the times I averted my eyes from his as I slipped out the front door, sometimes for days. He would not sleep for the first two days I was gone. He would wait for me by the front window. Opportunities lost.

Rescuing Rover has been subscribing to James Jacobson's "Do You Remember Love"
video as well as his books, inspirational notes and weekly updates about his wonderful dog Maui. To us, he's been an inspiration. We would love for you to sign up for his newsletter from his "senior dog" Maui. She is an inspiration and a totally uplifting experience.
This is a recent photo of James. He just got married to Molly and she took this picture of "our Maui". You can also view some great videos on this website. Didn't want to list them all. Thank you so much James for lightening up so many of our lives. We sincerely appreciate your work it bringing Maui into our lives.

Doing More for Pets Rescue Stories Contest

Rally to Rescue™ recognizes the importance of the work pet rescuers do to help protect homeless pets, and we are committed to doing our part to help in this mission. Rally to Rescue™ helps rescue organizations across the country give rescued pets the nutrition and care they need and the loving homes they deserve.

How It Works
The Rescue Ambassadors selected to be part of this program have access to exclusive resources and benefits, including marketing tools, event kits and fundraising tools. The program’s central fundraising tool is the Rally to Rescue™ T-Shirt. These fundraising T-Shirts, custom designed in the Rally to Rescue™ signature shade of purple, feature a classic quotation from Mahatma Gandhi on the front: "The character of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated." Purchases help us benefit pet rescue organizations across the country. Learn more about the Rescue Ambassador Program

Who We Are
Rally to Rescue™ focuses on the support of smaller pet rescue organizations that may often be overlooked by potential donors and adopters due to their more limited fundraising and marketing capabilities. But our nationwide efforts to raise awareness for pet rescue causes will have a positive impact on rescue organizations, big and small. View a directory of participating pet rescue organizations

The Campaign was a great success. Here are some of the pictures taken at the event. One of our Pet Partners is Cody & Company. Many thanks for helping us during the event.

We had loads of people that requested information to volunteer. We are very proud. We also adopted Ernest to a great home.

Our Perfect Petzzz Adoption Center was a great success--It was such a great attraction. Lots of kids wanted to touch the pets and convince their moms to take them home! ( Perfect Petzzz are stuffed dogs & cats that actually breathe--very lifelike--they come with rabies tag, collar, adoption certificate, bed, brush and carrier) We adopted out 4 of our "alternative pets" to some great homes.

Donations were very much appreciated. Thank you to all. To see other Perfect Petzzz available, click on picture.

He Carried His Dog To The SPCA

He carried his dog to the S.P.C.A.
for the old man will be put in a home.
But they told him he can't have an animal there...
so tomorrow he'll move in alone.

With tears in his eyes, he handed his dog to the woman who worked there that day.
But sorrow had filled the poor ol' man's heart when he handed ol' Laddie away.

Part I: How To Keep Your Dog Mentally Stimulated

I was having a conversation with a friend of mine and I thought I would quickly send this out to you, before I leave for the weekend.

We were discussing how to keep your dog's mind stimulated.

Remember: Bored dogs cause problems. If you don't keep your dog's mind stimulated, chances are that he'll find activities to stimulate his mind, himself. And you won't like those activities. :)

A dog that is mentally stimulated on a daily basis is a happy dog. And happy dogs don't cause dog problems.

Here's a quick list of how to keep your dog mentally stimulated: To continue, click here:
