Thank you to all who serve, to all who give, and to all who have given. Thank you for my freedom.

Thank you Dad, Grandpa D., Grandpa P., Uncle J., Uncle D., and to my father-in-law.

When you are out today… Say thank you, accept the poppy, make a donation, and wear the poppy proudly!

Can’t find a poppy? cosmicplutoknits has a quick pattern for you for the poppy below.  Laura Chau developed the pattern and was kind enough to share the picture too.

Puppies!

puppies, originally uploaded by libraryl0v3r.
I had the opportunity to play with puppies today. They were in a rescue transport coming from Tenessee and their Chauffeur stopped by the library today to show her appreciation to the staff with a box of DD coffee, bagels and donuts! Of course when she arrived I thanked her for the coffee and asked if she had any puppies…. and as luck would have it – I got my puppy fix!
The 3 puppies are rescued from a kill shelter down south and brought up north through a dedicated network of volunteers who meet up at a moments notice to pick up puppies, dogs, kittens and cats and deliver them to foster families in our area while they await adoption.
These puppies are Great Pyrenees and about 6-7 weeks old. They should be ready for adoption in about 2 weeks.  As I can attest, the breed is the best. Check here for more breed info. They are kind, loving and gentle. My puppy, Thor who is now a year old is a Great Pyrenees/Labrador mix, who is so mellow and great with all three of my small kids. After he had been with us for about a month my husband and I both remarked that if we had know this breed mix was gonna be this easy, we’d have adopted two! I won’t try to cover up their size…. they are classified as an Extra Large breed, but through all our research we determined that the bigger the breed, the better they were with families with small children and the more mellow they were too.  Just what I needed. Thor is great! He’s an indoor dog, playful when you want and sleepy when you need him to be and does not get crazy when the kids are!
If you are interested in adopting one of these cuties contact Another Chance Pet Rescue and tell them I sent you!! anotherchancepetrescue.org
NEWS UPDATE: the puppies have been listed online HERE! Check our Dominoe, Reggie and Simone.
