My daughter Chloe (18), and my son Zack (16) are deep down to the core, true animal lovers. I ever so much admire this shining quality in the two of them. I even wrote recently about how their choice to become vegetarians evolved. BTW- animal adoration was one of the main motivating factors behind their decision.
So…As you might well imagine..
They are the type of kids who if they see a cat, dog, turtle, any animal what so ever for that matter– looking lost, or in danger of running into the road, become insistent… demanding we immediately stop and offer assistance. I of course don’t mind and want to help too; in fact I actually have many, many, times in the past. Unfortunately, though this is not always an easy deed to accomplish.
Yesterday, when I was taking Zack home from school he spotted an adorable yellow dog bumbling along the edge of the road.
We stopped and tried to get close to him…the dog ran…we played this game of chase for a while with the puppy, but never could get close enough to read his tags.
Zack worked hard though…
There was no way that pooch was going to go for it.
In the end, we finally were able to talk with a neighbor who said he was going to try and lure “old yeller” (our nickname for him ) into his fenced backyard.The dog would be safe there and he would then be able to call the SPCA office and attempt to locate his owners.
WONDERFUL news! Another dog crisis averted…Whew!
The Push Up Challenge~
I really,really wish I could have linked up to this challenge from the beginning! While one week will allow me time to improve, I’m not so sure if I’ll be able to reach my stated goal- which was to add 25 push-ups on to- the 25 push ups I am currently able to complete. I definitely plan to remain optimistic and on the bright side I managed to power through 29 in a single round today!
I will keep on keeping on
