Super Bowl...Puppy Bowl--The Blending of Two Things I Love
I love football and puppies and Animal Planet blended them to make the cutest TV event. I ooh-ed and aahh-ed through about two hours of television. Last night, after I watched the Saints march over the Colts I tuned into the Puppy Bowl. I cooed at the cutest starting line-up and chuckled at the Kitty Half show and got a Hamster View from the blimp manned by Hamsters [thankfully there's autopilot].
Watching this fun speaks to both the girly side of me that loves all things soft and fluffy. But also my human side that loves our best friends. Yesterday, was a Shepard Mix [with a Rott] named Carson who looked like my dog, Trouble. My baby had a huge personality and a love for food. Cancer took him from me and I miss him everyday. When I watch the Puppy Bowl, that hole in me is filled, a connection is made. After all, we evolved and thrived thanks to dogs. I don't anyone that has had their life impacted by an animal whether a cat or dog, bird or anything one existing out there.
We have to treat our animals better. So spay or neuter your animals, help out a rescue center by donating time, food and if your searching for a dog, save one. They are our best friends [I include cats too], I think it's time we be theirs.
