Charlie, Daisy and Buttercup have joined the R.O.A.R. Squad!
A couple weeks ago I got an email from a really neat lady, Shauna Stewart - who's been on a mission since April 2010.
She got the idea that she wanted to profile bloggers from all across North America - at least one from every Province, State, and Territory, promoting the "shop, not adopt" philosophy by profiling owners and their pets.
She's almost come to the end of her project - March, 2011 is the end of her journey with this - and I am lucky enough to have been able to squeak in somehow and to have been contacted by her.
She published my post last night on her blog - so you can go see it now - it's at http://fidoandwino.com/2011/03/13/r-o-a-r-squad-joan-and-her-dogs-buttercup-charlie-and-daisy/
Shauna has previously posted one other profile from Nova Scotia - Kristine and her dog Shiva - who I've had a link to on the sidebar of this blog for awhile - and here is the link to her profile on Shauna's blog.
I think it's a fabulous project that Shauna has been taking on for the last year - showing that rescued animals make great companions, and that there should be no reservations whatsoever in our willingness to take them on as pets is a wonderful thing to do - because it's absolutely true.
Every animal is just like every human - an individual - we're all good, and we all have our own personalities, and there's no such thing as a damaged dog - we're all works in progress.
Thank you Shauna for giving rescued animals the voice to show the world how fabulous they are - I know that Daisy, Charlie and Buttercup are pretty much convinced that they are absolutely perfect!
