Four legs, a lick and a wag

 

Hi Friends,

I got a Christmas card. Not a holiday card, but a Christmas card! Thanks Cinder! I too hope you and all my friends who have written me have special warmth this Christmas season with those you love and who love you.

Remember that sometimes packages under the Christmas tree are a huge invitation to all four footed inhabitants of the home. Be careful that your best buds don’t drink water from under the tree, that all rubber and food items are placed so they cannot get to them.

My long ago friend Smokey unwrapped some ice skate protectors from under the tree. He thought of course they were toys as they were rubber. Needless to say my people friends were all shocked when they were ready to open presents!

So, be careful and keep my friends in mind when placing packages under the tree.

Of course I know you will be careful of all food goodies that always appear at Christmas time that are sooooo delicious. Remember we do best with the diet we are on and not a lot of extra stuff. Don’t forget as well we still like our routine with walks and special cuddle times with you.

I liked this that my mom read to me out of a magazine so I thought I would share it with you this Christmas season. It is called “Just My Dog”

Some people think my dog is “just a dog.” They don’t understand that some of the proudest moments have come from being with “just my dog.” Many hours have passed in the company of “just my dog,” and not once have I felt slighted.

My dog brings into my life the very essence of friendship, trust and pure unbridled joy. My dog brings out the compassion and patience that makes me a better person. Because of my dog I will rise early, take long walks and look longingly to the future.

I hope that someday people can understand it’s not “just a dog” … My dog is the thing that gives me humanity and keeps me from being “just a person.”

Wiggles and Wags to the Howe Military cadets who come every week to the Sanctuary to help clean, walk, love and once in a while slip my friends a biscuit or treat of some kind. They are great cadets and my buds love having them come just spend time with them.

Remember if you are looking for a great friend call the Sanctuary at 463-4142 to make a time to choose your forever new friend.

If you are noticing some acrylic dog houses around the county, this is good. This is your very first step to putting in some loose change from your pocket to help out the Sanctuary. If you have not noticed the dog houses, be looking for them and then toss in some of your change. Thanks from all my buds at the Sanctuary who have agreed to set a dog house at their business as all the money will go towards helping them.

Don’t forget about Buddy’s Buds book. You can catch up on what is going on by logging onto my blog, www.myarkbuddy.wordpress.com Stories about your pet told through your best friend’s eyes. I have about six stories so far and I am hoping to get lots more. Be part of the fun and write your story.

Your Friend,

Buddy
