Everyday Inspirations

The puppies of Everyday Inspirations.

I was up early this morning, sipping coffee and going through my Twitter feed, when I found a link that made me sit up and take action.

Angie and I have written about our love of animals, specifically our dogs, several times on this site (see examples here, here, and here). It always amazes me how special the bond can be between humans and animals. It makes life so much more beautiful. I cannot imagine life without dogs. I completely adore my Bud and Beth and was beyond thrilled when Angie brought home little Daisy.

I especially have a soft spot for my little Beth (top left), whom we affectionately refer to as our Pound Puppy. She's so sweet and sensitive and perfect for our family. Best of all, we saved her when no one else wanted her. It breaks my heart to think of how many dogs are waiting for love right now.

This morning when I read that Pedigree is donating food to dog shelters JUST FOR WRITING A BLOG POST, there was no doubt in my mind what today's Small Inspiration would be (read more information here on ILoveRescueAnimals.org). It's so simple and wonderful: For every blog post that mentions the company's adoption drive by Sunday, September 19, Pedigree will donate a 20 pound bag of Healthy Longevity Food to a shelter. Sign us up!

Even if you don't have a blog, you can help. Log on to Facebook and become a fan of Pedigree. For every fan they receive, Pedigree will donate a bowl of dog food to a local shelter (their goal is 4 million bowls, one for every dog that will end up in a shelter this year). Over 1.1 million bowls have been donated. Can I just say how inspirational that is? Beautiful!

Love the photos of your happy pups! Definitely clicking that Pedigree site! I completely agree on the friendship between our people and non-human animals. Our dog is a rescue, we got her when she was 5 and she's the sweetest thing ever. Can't believe she went through two other owners who called her "high needs." The previous owner wrote, "she cowers and urinates when punished." !!! Makes my blood boil. My horse is also a rescue of sorts. Purchased her as an off-track thoroughbred. Retired from racing and stuck in a lesson program where she was losing weight on that downhill slide that usually ends on the meat truck. Now she is sleek, healthy, confident and we have a great time eventing. Here's a photo of her: http://bit.ly/9qlLcP So nice to meet someone who has a place in there heart for animals.

I have read a LOT of these posts and I have to say that yours was so beautiful it honestly made me tear up! I am so glad that people really took this challenge to heart and made it bigger than we could all imagine! What beautiful furkids you have! I hope someday you'll tell us Beth's story so she can be part of our Rescue of the Week series!

How very kind of you! Thank you for visiting. I'm glad you enjoyed the post.

I would LOVE to tell you Beth's story. She really is a miracle puppy. I'll send you an email. :)
