Hyde Park Square ~ a dog friendly neighborhood. Hyde Park is an eclectic neighborhood in eastern Cincinnati.
Oh me, Oh my, I have been bad about passing on the Awards I have been given. So today I am doing the Very Inspiring Blogger Award. To the top right of my picture.
When I get an award I feel a sense of pride and I don't pass them on lightly.
Who inspires us, Kim from Life at Golden Pines. Her heart for dogs in need is boundless. One of the dogs she took in recently died, Sam. Kim had Sam I believe because his owner had cancer and could no longer care for him. Kim posted when Sam died that his owner had recently passed also. I like to think Sam knew and let his body release to the bridge so he could be with his owner.
A person who can take in dogs in need, and give, knowing you will not have much time with them is an inspiration to us. So I am only naming Life at Golden Pines. And I most certainly don't expect Kim to follow the rules of this award.
I came across this Dog Will and I thought how appropriate for this post.
Before humans die they write their Last Will and Testament give the homes and all they have, to those they leave behind.
If, with my paws, I could do the same, this is what I'd ask...
To the poor and lonely stray I'd give:
~ My happy home
~ My bowl and cozy bed, soft pillow and all my toys.
~ The lap, which I loved so much.
~ The hand that stroked my fur & and the sweet voice which spoke my name.
I'd will to the sad, scared shelter dog, the place I had in my
human's loving heart, of which there seemed no bounds.
So, when I die, please do not say, "I will never have a pet again,
for the loss and pain, is more than I can stand,"
Instead, go find an unloved dog, one whose life has
held no joy or hope and give MY place to HIM.
This is the only thing I can give....
The love I left behind
Thank you Susie and Sidebite for nominating me. You two have been the bestest friends a scot could want.
I am suppose to share seven things about myself.
Well it is just Lee and I and when we are lonely we love to look at other blogs.
I, Sweet William The Scot, was inbred terribly.
I have deformed front legs that go out 80 degrees at the ankles.
I love almost every person I come into contact with.
I hate puppy mills!
I love the camera and most of my pictures are taken in two shots.
I love popcorn.
Thanks for being a friend
Traveling down the road and back again
Your heart is true and your a friend of mine.
