Howlin' our heads off!

Wooos & a-rooos everyone,
Humom went away for a few days and we couldn't get our paws on the 'puter board till now. We howled our heads off reading your comments on "Sea Horses"! Thanks for playing along. You made some very valid points - we are much prettier than those horses, and MUCH smarter, too. No bits in our mouths, and you can't make a husky do anything we don't want to. Zim, we're working on getting an ocean for you, we know how much you want one! Hey Maverick... look at this ship - it's The Black Pearl (really!) - anchored off Newport last summer - and there were Pirates in the streets, too!



Humom said that on her train trip, she sat next to a very sweet older lady who just loved dogs. She said she always had one, but now since she is quite old & likes to travel, instead of owning a dog, she volunteers at her local pet shelter. She collects blankets from yard sales, thrift shops, & friends, & donates them to her shelter dogs. She takes the little ones for walks, and pets & talks to the bigger dogs. she said the hard part is they all look at her with those big eyes, she wishes she could take them all home. She's even gotten older friends of hers to volunteer there too - and one of them told her he felt like he had a purpose in life again, working at the shelter. Isn't that sweet? It's good to know there are good-hearted humans willing to help out. We salute her with a big WOOO!

While it's good humom is home to wait on us again, the bad part is that she BROKE our camera on her trip!!! That means no new pictures of us being cute for a while.... but she's taken SO many pictures of us, she can post ones we've never shared till the flashy thing gets working right.

We'll have a special treat to post on Sunday - a birfday salute to Jack, as he turns three on Monday. You're all invited to "watch" him grow up!

Woos & a-rooos,
Star & Jack "almost the birthday boy" A-roo

Two paws up to that nice lady who volunteers at the shelter! Our Mom is always encouraging folks to do that. She wishes everyone would understand how important it is for the animals to practice interracting with humans. Getting lots of love and puppy licks in return is the bonus. We're glad your Mom is back to wait on you.
