* Love Your Pet AND Your Friends! *

Happy Thursday, February 20th, 2014
 
I was having a hard time coming up with something interesting to write about today and then I remembered a site that always has unusual information to share:
 
 
 
I'm so glad I checked it out because, according to them, today is, among other things,  Love Your Pet Day, and International Friendship Week (Feb 16-22) TWO of my favorite things:
 
My beloved dog, Vern
 
is so special.
 


 
He is definitely loved,

 
and spoiled!! J
 

To have friends and to be a friend to others,
is an amazing gift in life, so hang on to them dearly!
 
I treasure all my friends, particularly those bloggie friends who I've never met, and most likely never will. We have such strong, magical connections.
 

Thank you all!


But you got to have friends
The feeling's oh, so strong
You got to have friends
To make that day last long
-- Bette Midler
 
 
God said, “I need somebody strong enough to pull sleds and find bombs, yet gentle enough to love babies and lead the blind. Somebody who will spend all day on a couch with a resting head and supportive eyes to lift the spirits of a broken heart.” So God made a dog. source

*Important Note: In my previous blog on February 17th, I inadvertently left out one of my blog tour stops! I'm so sorry! Sometime this April I will be featured on Juanita Nobles' blog. Juanita, I apologize! I'm looking forward to being on your blog, and I will add your blog asap to the list.

 
P.S. Is my new background showing up properly? Just wondering because no on has mentioned it yet!  I just love the new shabby + book design!
