Thankful For a Community That Loves and Helps Dogs Like Me

November 27, 2013

Cookie here!  Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, and I’m so excited!  Lots of visitors equals lots of attention…not to mention lots of treats!

Even though it’s a holiday, I’ll still need my walks.  One of the many things I’m grateful for is living in a town where the people on the street are so kind to me and all the other dogs here.  From our Letter Carrier who often stops his truck to pass me a bone, to the many folks who stop me for a “pat and chat,” and to the shops on Katonah Avenue who leave out bowls of fresh water for the passing pups, I really do feel the love!

Did you know that the Hudson Valley Pet Pantry is helping individuals and families who need help feeding their pets due to job loss or financial hardship?  Since 2010 they have been helping people facing hard times keep their pets by providing food supplies for dogs, cats, birds, rabbits and other domestic animals.  Currently they are helping keep 653 animals at home and out of shelters by providing free pet food to 257 families and individuals.   

So here’s to Susan Katz, Founder & President, Kathy Ferri, Director of Pantry Operations, and all the other good people at the Hudson Valley Pet Pantry.  I am thankful for great people like you!

If you’d like to learn more about how you can help the pantry this holiday season, their contact information is below.

Happy Thanksgiving to You & Yours, furry and otherwise!

Woofs, Cookie

Ode to Cookie

November 14, 2013

A Poem in Celebration of a Very Lovable Beast

Dogdaddy copy

Skull of Steel, tongue of Velvet

Sandpaper paws, razor-sharp claws

And soft silky ears that hear everything.

A wet spotted nose strikes a playful pose

under eyes of blue, near a heart very true.

Spots, patches,colorful splashes 

On wild-and-wooly haunches

Those floppy ears will be perky for years…and then some.

Loves belly rubs, but has an aversion to bath tubs. 

Wherever we go and whatever we do,

Cookie would like to come along, too.

Study buddy, companion, comforter and friend,

You’re one of a kind, Cookie, and that’s…

The End!
