It was Thanksgiving Day

Martha and Stewart were getting everything ready. It was their first Thanksgiving party after all.  The Turkey was done and so was the pie. Pumpkin pie that is.

Everything was going as plan.

The only problem was that Martha and Steward had two playful kittens. It was their first Thanksgiving too. Everything was new–a little too new for them.


Happy Thanksgiving!


I Wonder…

I wonder how they do it

How they are able to forgive

And able to love

Because if I knew I was not wanted anymore

If I knew I was not love anymore

If I knew I was just an item to some

I would be distorted with rage

Dogs are full of wonders and maybe one day

If that’s the one day my dog will talk

Maybe then I’ll find out

But until that day I’ll just keep wondering

I thought I knew what kindness was

But then I welcomed a dog to my family

Turns out I didn’t know anything at all

But Rufus is more than happy to show it to me every day

I Have A Booger

And her name is Lulu.

She’s extremely vocal

But for a mutt…

She is most definitely, absolutely, unbelievably, DELICATE!
