2011 Earth Hour

Moms and Dad are pawticipating in Earth Hour again this year. We've all helped, since 2008. Earth Hour is sponsored by the World Wildlife Fund. It's simple to pawticipate. You just need to get your two leggers to turn off the lights at 8:30 p.m. local time for an hour. That will really save the world a lot of energy!! There is a city in each state that is pawticipating too! Nashville, TN is our closest city. They are going to shine green lights on the skyscrappers downtown, before the lights go out!! KEWL!

A Wordy Wordless Wednesday!

We know that it's Wordless Wednesday but the Painter Pack's Moms posted a wonderful piece on her Facebook page that we'd like to share with efurone!! Happy Wednesday efurbody!!


I will never know the loneliness I hear in the barks
of the other dogs 'out there'.
I can sleep soundly, assured that when I wake
my world will not have changed.
I will never know hunger, or the fear of not knowing if I'll eat.
I will not shiver in the cold, or grow weary from the heat.
I will feel the sun's warmth, and the rain's coolness,
and be allowed to smell all that can reach my nose.
My fur will shine, and never be dirty or matted.

Here in this house...

There will be an effort to communicate with me on my level.
I will be talked to and, even if I don't understand,
I can enjoy the warmth of the words.
I will be given a name so that I may
know who I am among many.
My name will be used in joy,
and I will love the sound of it!

I will never be a substitute for anything I am not.
I will never be used to improve peoples' images of themselves.
I will be loved because I am who I am,
not someone's idea of who I should be.
I will never suffer for someone's anger,
impatience, or stupidity.
I will be taught all the things I need
to know to be loved by all.

If I do not learn my lessons well,
they will look to
my teacher for blame.

Here in this house...

I can trust arms that hold, hands that touch...
knowing that, no matter what they do,
they do it for the good of me.
If I am ill, I will be doctored. If scared, I will be calmed.
If sad, I will be cheered.

No matter what I look like, I will be considered
beautiful and thought to be of value.
I will never be cast out because I am too old, too ill,
too unruly, or not cute enough.
My life is a responsibility, and not an afterthought.

Here in this house... I will belong. I am home.
