I hope everyone had wonderful holidays! I wish you and yours all the best in 2013. My main hope for the coming year is for progress on animal welfare issues in developing countries and in areas with severe poverty. There are signs of hope in some places. Egyptian Society for Mercy in Egypt, Rudozem Street Dog Rescue in Bulgaria, Rez Dog Rescue in the Yakima Valley of Washington State.
My plans for the New Year are fairly simple:
- I want to add a second walk for Saffron per day to the one looong walk she already gets—good for both of us! MapMyWalk is my favorite tool for finding out how far we walk.
- I’m going to get more DIY projects done for the furred ones. I’m currently working on a cute, red raincoat for Saffron based on this DIY Doggie Raincoat. She looks like Little Red Riding Hood.
- I also need to do more to enrich our cats’ lives. More playtime and more places for them to perch around our house.
We hope you all have a happy, healthy, & prosperous year!
