Happy Thanksgiving Canada!

October 12, 2015

Happy ThanksgivingA big shout out to our Canadian readers as they celebrate Thanksgiving today. Thanks for coming along with us on this blog journey.

A short history lesson for the American readers: The Canadians actually celebrated the first Thanksgiving celebration in North America in 1578 – a full 43 years before the Pilgrims celebrated at the Plymouth Rock colony in 1621. The Canadian celebration happened when explorer Martin Frobisher returned to Canada after his 3rd try at finding the Northwest Passage.

Canadians: Please eat a BIG piece of apple pie for me! (And remember to keep your dog away from the turkey carcass – the bones can splinter and cut your dog’s throat and intestines.)

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!

Shelter Sunday: Nap Time at Arizona Greyhound Rescue

October 11, 2015

A little different take on our Shelter Sunday feature this week.

Sunday afternoons are my favorite time to nap. Maybe that’s why this video struck me so hard today. Here’s what the videographer from Arizona Greyhound Rescue has to say about it: Mr. Fry is a saluki mix from Arizona Greyhound Rescue. He loves to bask in the sun, so he takes his bed with him to a sunny spot for a nice afternoon nap. Mr. Fry also will carry his bed with him to be near his humans if they moved into another room.

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!

Lutheran Church Charities Sends Comfort Dogs to Umpqua Community College

From Lutheran Church Charities: While the story [of the UCC shooting in Roseburg, Oregon] was just being reported, LCC received a call from the Northwest District Disaster Response Coordinator, The Rev. Ron Norris, requesting the deployment of our LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs in response to this horrific mass shooting.

Following that initial call, the president of the Northwest District, Rev. Paul A. Linnemann, invited the LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs and handlers to Oregon to assist their district with reaching those who are in need, with the Mercy, Compassion, Presence and Proclamation of Jesus Christ.

The LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Teams had traveled from four different states the previous 48 hours to reach Roseburg Oregon. Monday, the team met at 7:30am and started the day with devotions and prayer still awaiting God’s plan for the day. God’s call came at 8am through Pastor Sarkissian of Green Community Church. He would meet the K-9 team at Umpqua Community College as they wanted the Comfort Dogs present when the faculty and staff returned in the morning and the students were invited back at 1pm to retrieve lost articles from the day of the shootings.

When the team arrived, they were led into the center of the campus with their vehicles and given a briefing of what would be going on in the college that day. Veterans from the veteran center, the acting college President, the Sherriff, and the students all arrived shortly after the faculty.

Words cannot describe how strong the emotions were. One by one people recalled the accounts of the day while they petted the dogs. Remembering each minute, where they were and what they heard or saw. Heartbreaking, heroic, and lasting memories. The 6 K-9 teams responded with love and prayer which was so appreciated.

What a wonderful ministry!

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!

Saturday Survey: The Rainbow Bridge

October 3, 2015

It seems I’m focusing quite a bit on death this week, but I’d like to know your opinion on the Rainbow Bridge idea. It’s a sweet, helpful grief recovery mechanism for many people, I’m sure. I’d like to believe my pets who have passed on will be there waiting. What about you?

Do you believe your dog will be waiting for you when you get to heaven?
