As I look out my office window here at home, on Thursday morning, the snow is falling softly, no wind and it is a beautiful scene with the birds and squirrels feeding at their food stations. I have a couple of fosters sitting with me, one sitting on half of the computer keys as I try to type around her, one sitting at the window diligently watching the birds eating their mid-morning snack.

You would think that having lived for several decades, I would have accepted the fact that my life is not and has never been complete without a dog. And since I have been sharing most of that multi-decade life with a person who also cannot live without a four-footed family member, be it feline or canine, I should have been prepared for Mandy, the five pound ball of fluff and cuteness that invaded our home three months ago.
There are some really awesome rewards when you are helping animals and people. They go hand-inhand and when you are helping one, you are also helping the other.
We’ve been hearing it for days, how the remnants of Hurricane Michael, and Florence before him, were causing flooding and even tornadoes inland, away from the coast.
York Adopt a Pet will be celebrating three very special events on Saturday, Oct. 6 from 10 a.m. until noon. Peace of mind……….
I so appreciate the honor of being nominated York fest Queen. Both Jan Bestwick and Pat Carpenter were also very deserving of their efforts to make a difference in their volunteering of so many causes. I feel that having volunteered for York Adopt a Pet these 20 some years are more rewarding than the time and effort I have put forth. There are many, many hours of volunteering being done each and every day by many people. Thankfully mine was doing something that I truly loved to do.
This coming Sept. 21, Jay and I will celebrate 45 years of wedded bliss … well, marriage! As dog (pet) lovers we have welcomed quite a few into our family. Plus, we’ve been lucky enough to have made the acquaintance of our friends’ canines. Each of these dogs has been unique, just like the people who reside in their homes.
The frosting on the cake for someone involved in animal rescue is rescuing an animal, caring for the animal and securing a successful and loving home for the animal. When it includes more than one cat or kitten at a time, the frosting is even sweeter.
