Tribute to a Dog

This is Asher-- he's not a Pekingese. I know you wonder why I'm putting his picture here. He's in Norfolk Animal Control, in Norfolk, VA. He is an older gentleman, very sweet. He needs a foster home or a permanent home since his time is close. If you know anyone who would like a nice, older boy, please contact the shelter. Asher is about 7 and 40-50 pounds. His pet i.d. number is: Pet ID: 0907-5027. The shelter's phone number is 757-441-5505.

TRIBUTE TO A DOG
The one absolutely unselfish friend that a man can have in this selfish world, the one that never deserts him, the one that never proves ungrateful or treacherous, is his dog.


A man's dog stands by him in prosperity and in poverty, in health and in sickness. He will sleep on the cold ground, where the wintry winds blow and the snow drives fiercely, if only he may be near his master's side.


He will kiss the hand that has no food to offer; he will lick the wounds and sores that come in encounter with the roughness of the world. He guards the sleep of his pauper master as if he were a prince.


When all other friends desert, he remains. When riches take wings and reputation falls to pieces, he is as constant in his love as the sun in its journey through the Heavens.
~Senator George Best, 1870~

THANK GOODNESS FOR OUR DOGS!

I love this post and all the sweet faces...especially Starlight, not sure why but I am always drawn to her. All of them seem like such wonderful companions and it looks like you had a great weekend with ALL those fur friends and your grandaughter.
