Marcus: I get to pick what we're thankful for today and I choose a tree. This tree is in our back yard.
Cameron: Why would you pick a tree? Is it edible?
Micah: Can you play with it?
Sam: Can you pee on it?
Marcus: No. It's outside the dog pen.
Buddy: Have you tried?
Marcus: No, it's too far away.
Merci: Well, I'm surprised you aren't practicing, seeing as how you've peed on everything else out there, including me and Buddy and Sam.
Percy: I'm glad we don't go outside if that's what goes on out there.
Cyndi: Hey, enough! I'd like to know why Marcus picked a tree for Thankful Thursday.
Marcus: Because it has shaded the back yard all summer so I could go outside and play.
Rusty: I think you made a wise choice, Marcus. I appreciated the shade, too, when I spent time outside on the back steps with you.
Marcus: So you think we should get Jan to make an award for the shade tree?
Sam: Naw, just pee on it next time we walk by it. It'll appreciate being watered.
PAWS needs your vote! Many of you know Kevin from Animal Shelter Volunteer Life blog. He and his wife Tracey do a lot to help the PAWS cats find homes. We talked him into entering PAWS, Norwalk, CT in the Vetericyn Loves Animals Charity Giveaway 2014. We would like to see PAWS win. Please, could you spare a minute of your time to vote for PAWS - Daily through October 15th.
You might not be familiar with Vetericyn but it is a product Jan used to use for us when we had a cut or scrape, for wound debriding, or when Buddy's skin problem flared up. It is safe for both cats and dogs. The only reason we haven't used it in a while is because we haven't been able to afford it.
It is a great product to have on hand for emergencies and the winning non-profit organization will receive a year's supply.
UPDATE: Cathy Keisha has found an easier way to vote but the original directions will remain on here in case something doesn't work at some point. Thanks, CK!
