Humans come together in tragedy

Mom heard from one of our aussie mates today. They are doing good. Their apartment was high enough that they didn't have any great water damage. But there's a lot of work to be done. Mom sent them a letter back. It didn't take long till she started preaching, (mom is kinda long winded anyway). She decided she needed to spread these words of encouragement to everyone cause she kept talking about people coming together after a tragedy strikes a country. Here's the note she sent, read it, it'll make you proud.

"We are so happy to hear from you. Mom and Dad are actually in the restoration business and they can tell you, you've dodged a bullet with no damage to your home. Insurance companies here will try to get out of paying for flood damage every time and are successful the majority of the time. After Katrina, the hurricane that flooded our gulf states a few years back, the big wigs in Washington stepped in and told the insurance companies they had to help pay for some of the damage.
I heard you guys lost power for awhile. Me and Ka-zar was worried but I'm not now. We wish we were there so we could help with the cleanup. Mom always want to help, and a lot of times she can't because she lives to far away or she can't get out of working. They were packing to go help in N.Y. after 9/11 when the news reported that they weren't letting anybody in N.Y. That was a sad time for all of us. But a blessing came out of it, Mom said that's the only time that the whole country was one thought, one mind. People came together. May that blessing of oneship spread through your country now. It's a great (brief but great) feeling, seeing people being nice and helpful to each other. It makes you proud.
When mom would hear about people driving hours to the gulf this year to help clean up the oil spill in the gulf and she would start crying out of pride. Remember, tragedy is always followed by people helping each other, which mom wish people were always like that.
We got in the restoration business to help people. Yah, the money is good but there's a lot of restoration snake oil sellers out there, so we wanted to be the honest restoration company. Mom's part in the business is to help the families adjust to the changes in their life. She always tell people "this is temporary, it's going to be a lot of stress, but be glad your safe, and your home will better than it was before. That's our promise." So we aren't there with you but maybe you can tell a neighbor the same thing to make them fell better."

In the wake of the Az. shootings, we all, most remember, we are all in the same boat. So when someone can't paddle anymore, someone needs to jump in and help, even if it's just a hug or a prayer.


Fire wood!!!

Today, mom came home baring gifts. She was carrying bundles of wood, several bundles of wood. So, when the wood went straight outside I know what this meant. Fires in the firepit! Thus time outside!!! Mom explained to me that it's supposed to be in the 50's this weekend and all next week. Yah!! I'm so tired of being stuck in this house. I just want to play with my Frisbee and chase the rabbit. Mom said the snow and ice will melt too. Good, better traction. One more day, and I'll be chilling in the back yard with mom and dad.

Daddy came home and then he left? Mom tried telling me he'll be back, but when? Where did you go daddy? Mom tried telling me he wasn't in the basement but I just stood at the door and whined and whined and whined some more. I just love my daddy. Once I gave up I heard his car pull up in the driveway. Thank God daddy is home!!!! I meet him at the door with the biggest tail wag I could.


That snow is slick

I tired running in the snow today but about busted my butt. What the heck? Dad explained to me that it sleeted for hours after it snowed. Which makes it slippery. Once I got my sea legs it was kinda fun. Mom said I was skating. Hey, this could possibly even out my chase for the Rabbit. If the Rabbit can't run without slipping and If I can run faster without slipping, than maybe I'll get that Rabbit, finally. I've been trying sense spring.
Dang it, Mom told me I can't try, cause I'll slide into the side of the garage and hurt myself.


Another lazy sunday, but momma cried today

Mom cried today. One of Zach's fur corralled friends died today. She wrote about it in his first diary hoping someone would see it and send over their caring words. Mom says it's always heartbreaking to know someone is grieving over a pet that's dear to them.
Same old same old, around here otherwise. I got to stay outside with dad for awhile. He worked on the cars. Mom did laundry off and on all day. I kept hearing "Zach off". That's when Zach jumps in the laundry basket before she can fold the clothes. Zoe slept all day. I didn't tell you I got to ride today. Dad took me to auto zone, two different times.
Mom is gripping about having to drive on ice to work. Dad said he would take her. Great, that means dad will leave early with her. I always snuggle with dad after Zach and I walk mom to the door in the mornings.


Omgoish.. Doggie of the day!!!

I can't even tell you how excited I am to have won dog of the day. Last night, I was jealous of Zach, cause he was dancing with mom to "crying at the chapel". That's Elvis for those of you who don't know. And this morning, wouldn't you know it. Me and mom was dancing the jig in the middle of the living room to "Hot child in the city" on my playlist!! I just can't believe it. Dog of the day.
I'm tickled pink over this, really I am. Tux is coming over with grandma and grandpa tonight. I can't wait to tell him. Mom said I can pick the movie. I'm thinking "Bringing up Baby". Oh, I almost forgot to tell you, mom said we're going to get a new toy today to celebrate.
What a year this is going to be. I even had the guts this morning to send a misletoe gift to my dog crush. I kinda got a crush on Cutter but mom said his mom called him a ladies man. So oh-well. I'll keep you posted on the crush front.


Tux!!!!! Grandma and Grandps yah!!!!!

I my grandparents came by today. They've been sick for a whole week now. I missed them and Tuxie. Me and Tux played in the snow, okay slight exaggeration, He marked his territory while I ran circles around him. I love him. He's my brother you know.
Christmas was great but the snow, when I woke up this morning was the topper.


The saddest poem

This is Diamond's mom writing in the diary today. I did not share this poem with my family, I felt it was to saddening for them. I found the poem in Queen Gracie's diary. She is a paw pal of Diamond's. The poem takes you through every emotion I could think of, but yet so horribly true it has to be passed around. It left me heartbroken, to think about the helpless lives who aren't saved at shelters across the country. The reason they wound up there in the first place.
We must demand that our shelters be no kill. We must stand up for the abused animals. We must demand stiffer laws for abusers. We must educate people about the spay and neutering programs. We must stand up for the defenceless animals our world. We must stand up!
To think of all the animals on the earth that are killed for big business and small business everyday. What is going to be the next animal to become extinct. Will it be a certain kind of whale, tiger or elephant. Could you imagine generations growing up looking at these animals at museums like we look at dinosaur bones. We must support our wildlife groups. We must.
We owe it to the animals, all of them, tame..wild..little..large..flesh eaters or herbivores and all animals in between.
My final feelings on the poem, is that it has inspired me. And that it will send you down the same road of emotions that I felt. That's why it should be on billboards across the nation. Thank you, Queen Grace.


It feels like christmas!

Panic has struck our house. Mom going in, out, in, out of the door always having bags in her hands when she comes back. Which of course, I've got to sniff, you never know it might be something to eat or better a new toy. Dad is working in the garage, which I like being out there with him except he's heater scares me. I think I'll just sit on the couch with the cats and stay out of their way. Oh, tux came by the last two nights and we played in the back yard. His sweater isn't fitting him right. Mom says she's getting him a new one for christmas but that's our secret. Wonder what she's giving me? Hopefully, not another cat.


Omgoish.. Let me tell you...

I didn't do my entry in last night cause I was so tired after my ride. We went to the gas station I barked at one guy coming out and then dad barked at some guy trying to run over the front of our car. I'd tell you what he said but I only know a few human words. I can tell you this he was mad.
Then I seen two little girls in the car beside us at a light. "look momma" I barked "They are so pretty". Momma told me to quit "barking at those little girls". But mom I was using my inside voice. Well, anyway, my humans were focused on the car itself. It was nice with a big back seat for me.
On my grandparents road dad got a call, and mom started singing. again I don't speak human but I picked up on... to the country.. eat..peaches. Hum, peaches.
When I got to grandma's I ran hard to the front door. Grandpa opened it up for me. I woke up tux right away. He was happy to see me as usual. I ate his snacks on the floor, drank his water(He's got grrreat water) and aggravated grandma. It was fun!!
Today is a lazy day. Eat, sleep and well, you know.
