Just think with your heart and something will come to you.~Connie Stark
Oh everlasting spirit, who made the stars and the skies, all the worlds, in all times spent and times to come, hear my prayer: Let your spirit rise strongly and enter into our dogs that are yours, to raise them up, to lift them up, and to heal them. Awaken their souls, so that they may live in your glory, so that they may live well, with less pain and suffering, until you call them back into your embrace.
Everlasting spirit, there is great love for these dogs here. They bring joy and never-ending love into our hearts! I ask that you restore them in body, mind and spirit....be present with our dogs in times of need. Bless our dogs and bless the stewards who care for them. Give us strength to be your agents of healing in their broken world.~unknown

But still I am one.
I cannot do everything,
But still I can do something;
And because I cannot do everything
I will not refuse to do the something that I can do."

"A dog has the soul of a philosopher"~Plato
I am the dog that you see on a chain
I am the cat that you see in the drain
I am the friend who has no home
I am the stray who lives all alone
I am the friend that you helped today
I am the one you transported far away
I am the voice you hear in your head
I am the caged animal who often dreads
I am the opinion you are trying to change
I am the anger you feel, and the rage
I am the tears you cry when I am sick
I am the hurt you feel, but cannot fix
I am the voice in your head, when you cannot sleep
I am the reason for the long hours that you keep
I am the voice who desperately needs you
And if not youâ¦â¦..then who?
I am whispering
And you are my voice~Author Unknown
Don't let yesterday's disappointments overshadow tomorrow's dreams -> life is like a mirror, if you keep smiling, it smiles right back to you -> So keep smiling
People take different roads seeking fulfillment and happiness. Just because they're not on your road doesn't mean they've gotten lost. ~H. Jackson Brown
Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.
One of the best feelings in the world is knowing your presence and absence both mean something to someone.
"Without the breath of the tiger there will be no wind, only clouds, and certainly no rain." âThe I Ching
A dog has one aim in life...to bestow his heart.~J.R. Ackerley
As you grow older you will discover that you have two hands. One for helping yourself, the other for helping others. ~Audrey Hepburn
"As far as eating is concerned, humans are the most stupid animals on the planet. We kill billions of wild animals to protect the animals that we eat. We are destroying our environment to feed to the animals we eat. We spend more time, money and resources fattening up the animals that we eat, than we do feeding humans who are dying of hunger. The greatest irony is that after all the expenses of raising these animals, we eat them; and they kill us slowly. And rather than recognize this madness, we torture and murder millions of other animals trying to find cures to diseases caused by eating animals in the first place." ~ Mike Anderson
"It is getting to the point where the only way for other animals to survive is if mankind departs." ~ A.D. Williams
"Love, butter & the company of cats is the recipe for a good life"~ Chef & author, Julia Child
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.
A favorite quote by Johnny Depp ~ The only creatures that are evolved enough to convey pure love are dogs and infants.
