A New Dog?????



Well, is anyone else having their hearts broken nightly by the Sarach MacLachlan commercial about homeless cats and dogs?...She's singing that mournful, haunting, beautiful song, which I actually used to hum while rocking my silent baby Alex to sleep...

"In the arms of an angel, fly away from here, from this dark, cold hotel room, and the emptiness that you fear. You are pulled from the wreckage of your silent revelry. You're in the arms of the angels. May you find some comfort here."

I cannot watch that commercial...there's a little one-eyed dog that looks exactly like Buddha...so Buddha gets a little extra cuddle when it comes on...so, while humming that song, I found myself in front of...yes...Animal Samaritans...and did they have any dogs?...YES...and did they have any little dogs?...YES...and what kind was it?....PURE BLACK DACHSUND/CHIHUAHUA MIX...was she full grown...YES, SHE'S A SQUIRT...did we fall in love with each other?....MUST YOU ASK?...

I'm taking Buddha over this afternoon to get acquainted...please, somebody adopt her before I get there....pppuuuhhhllleeesseeee.

Oh, and her name is "Abby"....I am serious.

Emma feels the same way about the as do the rest of us. Emma Jane will break down in tears if she hears that song.

Now about the puppy. GET THE PUP! Your puppy needs someone closer to his age to play with. Besides you know how I feel about dogs. Can't seem to say no to a dog in need.

Hey, Abby has a dog named Emma. . .I think it's about time that someone has a dog named Abby! :)
I don't feel the same way about animals, but I really appreciate people who DO feel this way. So, thanks for showing compassion when all the Emily Slussers of the world change the channel . . .or, donate food to human beings who are hungry. Doh! Did I type that? Bad Emily! Bad!
