If it’s a movie or TV show that I haven’t seen, I always appreciate the warning of spoiler alert. I’ve never been one skip to the end of the book to see what happens, before reading the book. I’m not sure that’s really a good analogy. Do people really do that?
As to spoiler alerts, I think some kids probably should get a spoiler alert to life. The belief in the Easter Bunny, Santa Claus and The Tooth Fairy are the wonder of childhood. When you find out the truth… you wonder how you ever believed, and you miss being paid for losing your teeth.
Some kids are told that their old dogs are no longer at the house. They have gone to happily live at a farm for old dogs. I think I was told that one; and to this day, I still believe it!
Well, I wanted to write a blog about something positive to get us started after a long weekend. There really is a farm for old dogs! One in Virginia is called Peacefulpassings.org. Here is their mission:
Our mission is to save senior animals. Peaceful Passings will work to achieve our mission and vision by housing and caring for senior and hospice animals, in a home environment. We will work to educate the public as to the worth and dignity of life, and provide sheltering where the needs of senior animals are met, as long as a quality of life remains.
I saw a story about them on PBS and it made me smile. You probably don’t have time to watch it right now but I am posting that episode right here. It might be something to come back to and watch when you want a feel good story. Their website gives streamlined information.
And for pic o’ day, I am posting one that I saw on Facebook yesterday. Even dogs are happy about some sun and beach… right?
