A Place to Bark

If I was independently wealthy, I would be throwing money at this wonderful shelter. Bernie Berlin is an artist and animal lover. She's been running the shelter since 2001, and she takes in numerous dogs and cats from other shelters and puppies rescued from puppy mills. She is a true inspiration, and I wish there were more people like her in the world!
Check out her website, it's linked to the right at "A Place to Bark".
This photo is one I grabbed from her Facebook photos. It's a litter she has recently rescued probably from a puppy mill. The caption below was "Spay and neuter your pets!"
Really, why wouldn't you? You can buy those neuticles now if you're worried your dog (or husband) might develop an insecurity about the lack of balls, right?

A Tribute...

to one of my favourite movies of my teens, White Nights. Dancing, Gregory Hines, Mikhail Baryshnikov, what more could you ask for? Both beautiful dancers and beautiful men.
I also happened to love Phil Collins and Lionel Ritchie way back when too... ah, the 80's! It's my era and I'm proud of it!

For the joy of swimming.

Well, here is the boy doing what he loves best. I swear, way back when he must have been a water dog! He absolutely loves every minute of it! Even when he's shivering uncontrollably, he still wants more. The photo where he has the stick sticking straight out of his mouth just cracked me up! It looks like he's smoking a stogie! Goofy dog...

Jumping off a waterfall in Jamaica!

These pics are a little blurry, but Mere was taking them from afar and had the zoom on. This was so much fun, and I can't believe I did it! You could go right under the waterfall and have the water thunder down on your head. You could cannonball from one fall to the next, as you can see me doing, AND you can rope swing into one of the pools. I felt like a kid again!

Total Eclipse of the Heart *literal version*

This is one of the most hysterical things I've seen in a while... it really shows what an idiotic video it truly is! It's a little long, but worth it!
