Five years.

Bunny love.

Caring for Duke.

Dogs to good homes.

These are the things the people at Best Friends Animal Society share in their video on what they are thankful for. Me? I’m VERY thankful I’m not homeless anymore. I was rescued and then fostered and then placed in my forever home, but many are not so lucky.

The animals at Best Friends (and there are more than dogs and cats there) are given a chance to find their own forever home. I hope every one of them do. Don’t you?

P.S. Mom Peep only knows how to cut and paste a link, not how to make it show up super cool, but here it is. The two-minute utube video. Feel the love. I did.

Oh, and a word from Mom. She says it’s not a good idea to give a gift of a pet for Christmas. You could give a gift certificate to an animal shelter (do they do those?) or a card with a note in it.  Too much hyperness going on (that’s my big word for the day) for us dogs (and cats too — though in my opinion they’re mostly clueless).
 
Either get your pet early and acclimate them before Christmas day (and give a needy dog or cat a home for the holidays) or wait until after. Either way…Mom Peep and I thank you, as do all the rescuers and fosters out there.

    Thanks for getting the word out, Charlie Bear. My mom sponsors two dogs at Best Friends – one is even your namesake! Even if you can’t adopt, you can sponsor a dog – what a great gift: do it in someone’s name!
    Merry Christmas to you, Charlie, and your peeps. Hope you get lots of squeaky toys and chew bones.

      Thanks for the well wishes for Christmas, and for getting lots of squeaky toys and bones. I think I’ll get many and hope you do too.

    Your mom is one smart lady, Charlie Bear. That getting acquainted process can take a while. Grin.

      Yup, you’re right. You are wise too! Have fun on the holidays. Tell Clyde to woof it up.

    Thank you B.J. and Charlie for sharing these important thoughts. Did you know that our current foster dog Sammy is being adopted out through the Best Friends Los Angeles programs?

      Dear Foster Mom, Sara,

      Hi there! Wiggles & Giggles and Licks to You! I miss you!

      Wasn’t I adopted out through Best Friends Los Angeles program too? I think Mom said I was. So happy for Sammy. Did he get a furever home yet? Mom showed me his picture and he’s super cute.

      I hope you have a marvelous Christmas.
      Love,
      Charlie Bear
