Yes, this is Willow. Without a doubt the most spoiled, loved, spoiled, adorable, spoiled, sweetest, spoiled, gentle, spoiled, happy dog in the world. Did I mention that she is spoiled?
I was cleaning the house the other day and put all of her toys in her fuf chair* and I am not sure why, but all of a sudden she jumped up on the chair, on top of ALL her toys and just layed there, as if protecting them. Either that, or she really was being a spoiled brat, and if she could have, she would have been saying 'mine, mine, mine, mine, mine'!!!
*this chair was originally bought for me, but somehow the princess chose it as hers. Seems to happen a lot.

No kid ever really grows up wanting to believe that, just perhaps, mom does know best. I mean really, they're older than us, not so hip to the fashions, and seems to be a little, well old. However, I take that all back. I spent Tuesday with mom, shopping for a new laptop for her and my dad, having lunch and then perusing the mall. All the while, grumbling about my back hurting. Which, if you know me, you know that I have Degenerative Disc Disease, and it causes me great pain at times. Walking is always the best form of exercise for back pain, but when you can't seem to find the right pair of shoes, it sucks.
So, as we were leaving the mall, we were walking though the shoe department in Macy's. They were having a sale, so I told my mom I wanted to look to see if maybe they had some decent, comfortable shoes on sale. That's when she dragged me over to the section of the shoe department where all the sandals are. I immediately saw the new Croc sandals and was trying them on (since I have had good luck with them in the past) when she came over with a pair of Fitflops and told me to try them on. Now I don't like sandals that have that thingy that goes in between your toes, but I humored her. And, I am so glad that I did. Imagine the most comfortable pair of shoes...ever....all nice and neatly made into a flip-flop...but so soft in between the toes that you don't even feel the leather. That's what these are. No kidding. Cute styles and colors, too. But being on the tight budget we are, I was a little sticker shocked, so mom offered to buy them for me. BOTH pairs. However, after wearing them for the past 4 days, I can tell you that they are worth EVERY penny!!
Yep, after 39 years, I have finally learned that mom does know best!!

Ok, so I have been know to be oversensitive when it comes to animals. And, if it weren't for this particular problem of mine, I would probably have dedicated my life to caring for them (and, who knows, perhaps when I grow up, I still will)!!
I was watching Animal Planet today and a commercial for the ASPCA came on, and it reduced me to tears. I can't stand to see animals that have been abused and neglected by people that promised to take care of them. So with that said, I am now on a new crusade to help the best that I can.
The above link is to the ASPCA website with a donation form. Anything will make a difference for the lives of these animals....will you please help!
