National Adopt A Shelter Pet Day ~ small blessings

Sophie Winter Coat 2011

 

Sophie the Wonder Dog ~ adopted seven years ago at the Manhattan (NYC) ASPCA. I often tell people, you’re going to find your adopted pet rescued you. Even if you didn’t realize you needed rescuing. Sophie definitely rescued me after my husband passed away too young.

Then God said, “Let the earth produce every sort of animal, each producing offspring of the same kind—livestock, small animals that scurry along the ground, and wild animals.” And that is what happened. 25 God made all sorts of wild animals, livestock, and small animals, each able to produce offspring of the same kind. And God saw that it was good. ~ Genesis 1:24 [New Living Translation]

Today is National Dog Day. This “howlday” was started in 2004 to encourage the adoption of rescued dogs. My little Sophie was a Christmas present, adopted in December a few years ago from the  ASPCA in Manhattan. What a joy she has been to our lives.

Let today be a reminder to get yourself to your local animal shelter. There you can find the perfect canine companion. You’ll find, your dog becomes the “heart” of your house.
