Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Happy St. Patrick’s Day.  I know it looks like I have been drinking green beer but that is not the case.  Mom doesn’t like beer… who could have taken this nutty picture???  Go figure!!!

An Irish Prayer of blessings to the Ohio State Basketball team in the March Madness Tournament!  Best wishes to all the teams, but we live in Columbus, Ohio and it’s the law here!!  HAH  HAH!!!

March Madness Mascot for Ohio State Buckeyes…could it be???

March Madness Tournament starts tomorrow, so I had to put on my cheer leading hat with my megaphone and pony tails.  To top it off, I put on my basketball necklace and I am ready for BASKETBALL!!!  Okay, my Mom is not the best photographer, but she tries.  We are from Columbus, Ohio so I hope you know that we love all the teams who are playing but the Ohio State Buckeyes are here and they have worked so hard this year, we just have to support them.  I think I should be their Mascot…could it be????  If not, at  least I can be one at home as we watch them lead the way!!  One thing I feel certain of… is that I am probably the only Jack Russell Terrier in this outfit!!!  Go Bucks!!!

Buddy the Pit Mix Doggie was Rescued!!

Mom came home the other day and she had a different scent on her….yes, it was dog!!!….but who???  She confessed that she had gone to the pet store to purchase some new tennis balls for me.  While there, the nicest young Pit Bull mix greeted her.  There was a very nice young man who was very proud to be with this doggy.  He sniffed my mom and the owner apologized for Buddy.  Mom said, “No need to apologize, I love all pets”.  Mom talked to this young man about Buddy and how cute and friendly he was.  He smiled and said he had just left the humane society and had adopted Buddy.  They had just stopped in to get some dog food, treats and toys. 

Well……is that the coolest thing ever.  I asked mom if she got a picture of Buddy, but she was so intent on the conversation, she forgot to take the picture.  This young man simply asked Buddy (while he was in his cage)  if he wanted to be his buddy and he came to him immediately.  Mom was so happy for both of them.  She didn’t get the young man’s name but whoever you are….God Bless you for rescuing Buddy!!  God’s blessings upon all who have hearts to adopt and rescue all the loving pets who are waiting on homes with lots of love.

Warm Story about One Eyed Pete and His Veterinarian

Mom has written one of our Pet-Loss letters to the parents of One Eyed Pete and his Veterinarian.  This cat was twenty three years old at the time of going to Pet Heaven.  Pete’s Mom and Dad found him as a kitten at a county fair.  They took him to their veterinarian to try and save his life.  His eye had been severely damaged.  Doc said he didn’t know if he could save his life but knew the eye could not be saved.  This doctor had just hired a newly graduated doctor.  The senior doctor assigned the new doctor to help this special little kitten.  She could not save the eye, but she saved Pete’s life.  They named him “One Eyed Pete”.  She became his permanent doctor and the couple who had found him, adopted him.  The doctor, his Mom and Dad gave Pete the best life ever.  At the end of twenty three years they were still totally committed to him and helped him transition into Pet Heaven.  Their niece asked my Mom to write a Message From Pet Heaven to the parents and to the doctor.  Each one received a Message from One Eyed Pete after he had arrived in Pet Heaven.  Such a touching story of love and total commitment.  Pete was VERY BLESSED!!

Babe Looks for our Koi Fish

As mentioned earlier, we have had a very difficult winter here in Ohio.  Mom and I have Koi fish in our pond.  We always pray for our fish prior to winter in hopes they will be okay.  We have a heater in the pond which helps.  Mom had a “Koi Cave” installed for them when she had the pond built, so they are pretty warm in their cave.  They also go in there for protection.  So far it looks good for them.  They are beginning to stick their heads out to see if it is okay.  We had some babies last year and they are probably saying…”Whew…what happened up there”!!!  I’m not that fond of water, so I never go in, but I do like to look at the fish and dream.  HAH!!!  I can hardly wait for spring!!
