Thankful Thursday

I’m a pretty thankful guy every day of the week but this week I wanted to paw out some special “High-fives”.
If you’ve been following my blog, you know that this weekend brought me a little pain. So I want to send out a special thank-you to folks everywhere that have the desire-and have done some serious training-to help us 4 legged critters. Sure, you make a decent living off of our owners, but it still takes someone with sympathy and caring to help us when we can’t tell you where it hurts.

I’m thankful for a great Mom and Dad who resolved to get me to this point in my life. I was not an easy fur-child to raise. You see, I have quite a dominant, bull-headedness about me that has tested their patience more than once. (Mom says I inherited this stubborn streak from my Dad). I’m very thankful they are not quitters!
I’m also thankful that both of them take me for walks. Like the postal motto: "Neither snow, nor rain, nor heat, nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds" They know I need a walk/run daily no matter what the weather.
Photo of Dad on one of our cold day walks. Kinda looks like Papa Smurf, don’t ya think?

I’m thankful Mom is not a “girly-girl”. She owns a mean pair of boots- and knows how to use ‘em!
(I inherited my big feet from her)

I’m thankful for all the men and women who are serving our country in the Armed Forces, and to their families back here at home. Here is a picture of my cousin Sarah. She just received “Airman of the Year” for the second year in a row from the US Air Force. She had a tour in Afghanistan last year and her fiance is now serving in Iraq. Our thoughts and prayers are with them all.

And as always, I am thankful for food. Any kind. Any where. Any time.

And last, but certainly not least-I’m thankful for all my friends in
Dog-Blogville. You inspire me, encourage me, teach me, and make me laugh!! I’m so glad to have friends who understand me and love me for the dawg that I am.

I think all of us dogs, and kitties, especially the rescues, appreciate the world we have now, we just don't always say it!

So, thanks, Chester, for saying it all so nicely for us.
