Obama Card

A friend posted this on his Facebook. I love it. Sums it up just perfectly.

Day @ the beach

Today was a beautiful day in Hawaii. After a birthday party at a park,
sitting under a shaded tree feeling the trade winds blowing, we
decided to take sonic down to the beach. He has been doing a lot
better going into the water, and even "caught some shore break"
although he didn't mean to. A lot of running and a lot of sand eating
while fetching, we all had a great day today.

Even dogs know...

This is a funny video. Enjoy.

Food Inc.

Go see this movie. You will never look at you food the same. I want to grow my own vegetables, raise my own chickens, eggs, beef, etc. I think I may have to move out of my tiny townhouse, and off to my gramp's farm in Nebraska, but if it makes life better for my family, is there another choice?
The only theater in Hawaii showing this movie is the Koolau 10, which is out in Kaneohe, across from the Valley of the Temples. Well worth it, just to have your eyes opened to the big food industries and how the dictate what goes into the supermarket, and the poor treatment of animals. Wow.


This has got to be one of the funniest videos out now. A joke made for some award show. It really is her rapping. Love it.

Someone Hates At&t

This guy must have really bad reception and "no bars in more places." I am actually pretty happy with my 3G service in Hawaii. I do drop calls a lot more than when I had Verizon, but VZ does not have the iPhone, nor do they allow the apps. If you think ATT crippled the iPhone, try putting music or ringtones on a VZ phone, yup, you pay for all that stuff, and $3 for a ringtone, that can't be moved from phone to phone, come on!

Love me some Thin Mints.

Always Hungry

Poor girl. She is always hungry and can't stop eating.

New Blog to follow

My wife decided to start her own blog. She now has a website she updates as well as her new blog Please check it out. She has become a vegetarian and has stuck with it for the past 27 days. Not so great for me as a husband who loves meat. Some of the stuff is not so bad, but others, are just plain gross. I will keep you updated on her progress as well as my struggle to have meat removed from my dinners...

The Rescue

Her eyes met mine as she walked down the corridor peering apprehensively into the kennels.  I felt her need instantly and knew I had to help her.  I wagged my tail, not too exuberantly, so she wouldn't be afraid. 

As she stopped at my kennel I blocked her view from a little accident I had in the back of my cage.  I didn't want her to know that I hadn't been walked today.  Sometimes the shelter keepers get too busy and I didn't want her to think poorly of them. 

As she read my kennel card I hoped that she wouldn't feel sad about my past.  I only have the future to look forward to and want to make a difference in someone's life. 

She got down on her knees and made little kissy sounds at me.  I shoved my shoulder and side of my head up against the kennel to comfort her. Gentle fingertips caressed my neck; she was desperate for companionship. 

A tear fell down her cheek and I raised my paw to assure her that all would be well.  Soon my kennel door opened and her smile was so bright that I instantly jumped into her arms.  I would promise to keep her safe.  I would promise to always be by her side. I would promise to do everything I could to see that radiant smile and sparkle in her eyes.  I was so fortunate that she came down my corridor.  So many more are out there who haven't walked the kennels.  So many more to be saved.  At least I could save one. 

I rescued a human today!
