New Project Announcement & a Poem

Hi, peeps! Christmas here with some exciting news...okay, so my mom is starting what she calls a "clinic" on her blog. She says it's not like a vet clinic (you can come out from under the couch now, fellow doggies and kitties), but the kind of clinic that means educating other peeps on a certain topic.

The topic my mom is using is pet rescue.

Though I'm not a rescue doggy myself, my mommy is a true advocate for pet rescue and recommends that peeps visit their local shelters and rescues and save the poor doggies and kitties there. So, from May 8-14 (well, the 9th is a debate and the 12th is our world tour, so we'll take a break from a clinic those days) we'll walk through some ways to help save the animals! She's also planning to do a Save The Animals post each Monday!

That's all I'm going to say for now 'cause we don't want to give too much away.

My mom will probably be writing all of the Save The Animal posts, so I decided I should share with you all a poem I wrote today instead of next week. It's just about my thoughts about homeless pets. I hope you all like it!

As I curled up in my cozy cage
And laid on my cozy bed
I looked up and was thankful for
The roof above my head

I frowned just for a moment
As I looked down at my bone
For I knew that there were dogs out there
Who didn't have a home

Who don't quite know what love is
What it's like to go for strolls
To sniff the flowers and walk for hours
And lift their legs on poles

At dawn I ate my kibble
And smacked my chops with glee
Yet there were still some dogs out there
Without kibbles to eat

As I played with my fave squeaky toy
On a comfy sofa seated
I remembered dogs who don't have toys
To play with when they're needed

Dogs and cats need loving homes
Play, and bellies full
So humans, can you help them out?
And save the animals?

This is the official logo thingy my mom designed for Save The Animals.

All of these photos are taken by her!

We're so excited to be launching this new project!

P.S. My mom and I were very sad to hear about Whitley today...if you haven't already, please pop over to her blog to leave some encouraging words. Thanks!

    Ooh oohhhh... have you met Ruby of Chicago yet??? She and her mum do fabulous work with exactly the type pets you write about and they have a series of posts called 'The Specials' which is all about pet adoption of animals with speical needs - I know you will LOVE it if you haven't already discovered it.

    Your poem is BEAUTIFURS, Christmas - you have skills with words and these surely touch the heart. Looking forward to 'attending clinic' &*> Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  9. That's a great project and poem! We wish all animals could have good homes. Roxy is our rescue dog. (Don't know if we answered your question about the pronunciation of Dui's name. Couldn't get in comment. It's like Dewey, but it's short for Ben Macdui, the second tallest peak in Scotland.
