National Black Dog Day 2019


Zoey wants to make an announcement on “National Black Dog Day”

Hey y’all! I’m Zoey, a black Pitador, adopted from The Colony Animal Shelter, nine weeks ago. Today is also NATIONAL BLACK DOG DAY. And therefore I want to say something. We black doggies are full of unconditional love, playful, and have beautiful shiny fur. On top of that, we make great companions, just like all the other puppies. I don’t know, why we get so easily overlooked, when it comes to adopting a dog. All I know, I’m very thankful, that the Chesters had a big heart and let me be a part of their pack from here on forward. I appreciate it very much by being a good dog, give them sweet puppy kisses, make a good playmate for the kids and my furry brothers and sisters, which are another dog and three cats. Please! Next time, when y’all go to the shelter consider to adopt one of us doggies with black fur as well. Here is sweet YEEHAA! from a Texas four-legged beauty. Thank you for taking your time, reading these words. It’s time for me to go back and play with my stick and my tennisball And to all my black puppy friends:

Happy Black Dog Day!

The Pumpkin Princess ~ A Garden Fairy Tale



Sara loves all the pumpkins at the Pumpkin Patch (2010)

Once upon a pumpkin vine,
There grew a flower, fair and fine.
One day, a sprite danced by and brushed
Her petals with a golden dust.
And magically, that flower fine
Became a pumpkin on that vine.

Now perhaps that fairy was a bee
And pollen dust fell from its knee.
Then pollination, not some spell’s power,
grew a fruit from that fair flower.
Still … her beauty had no match
She was the princess of the pumpkin patch!
