It is Woofing Wednesday

Its Woofing Wednesday,

Good Morning Friends and we hope you had a wonderful weekend. Mommy is so busy here and she is complaining that my diary is too full this week BOL but she has a point as we are busy.
On Sunday we went on an adventure to one of Moms favorite places, Stern Grove which is a beautiful big park with a lake at the end. It was fun to run along the pathway and smell lots of new smells, listen to the birds and relax in the sun. There were even turtles sunbathing on a rock in the middle of the lake.
One of the reasons we went was the San Francisco Chihuahuas has their monthly meet up there and they were having a Cinco De Mayo party. Lots of Chihuahuas all dressed up and yapping, just like a party should be.  It was lots of fun with lots of food although Meanie Mom would not share as she says the food is not good for me. Excuses, excuses, excuses. One of the best dog events in the city.
Today oy vey we are going to a fancy event,  Pets Are Wonderful Support’s 31st Anniversary Celebration: Petchitecture Gala.  I have to get dressed up for that, can you believe it ? All the dogs will be dressed up, they going to have a table of snacks for us, volunteers to look after us if Mom needs one. This is my first fancy event I am going to and really excited and we will share pictures next week from it.
And now I suppose we should NOT forget what day  it is on Sunday, yup it is Hoomans Mothers Day event – I think that is the most important one of all. What are you going to be doing for your Mom on Mothers Day. Me, am gonna try let her sleep in and behave.
 
We decided that all Moms needs something special for themselves so as a Mothers Day GiveAway we are going to spoil one Mom with a wonderful Rescue Tote Bag and Guatemalan Dog Walkers Bag.  They are amazing, I love mine that I received from PawZaar and find it to be the best I have come across to date. It holds a lot and makes my life so easy when going out for the day. What I really love about it is the side pockets for treats, bottle of water and whatever else I need handy. Plus the Dog Walkers Bag I used as a small inside purse and put my camera and phone it it.
One lucky winner will win the Rescue Tote Bag plus a color of their choice of the Dog Walkers Bag (Excluding purple as purple is out of stock)
 
What I especially love about Pawzaar is they donate to rescues with every sale that is done so every one benefits from them. These are the kind of businesses I love to work with and are important to me.
This give away is open to Canada also.

Wednesday Woof with Memories

May has arrived !!!
Spring is here I hope for everyone and the flowers are blooming, the chill is disappearing and everyone will be able to spend more time outdoors with our dogs. What a wonderful feeling.
May also brings back memories for me, not good ones but ones that I can say I am blessed to have had and those are with Baby R.I.P.
I will never forget going to the shelter to choose a dog, my ex told me to choose and then like anything else in an abusive relationship it was what she wanted or nothing so Baby came to live with us. That was 07 May 2006.
She was a cute little chiweenie, full of love and I could not have asked for a better friend through the hard times. Because of her I was able to escape the daily abuse by taking her for long walks, sometimes sitting under a tree and watching the world go by with her in my arms, she kept me alive in many ways during that awful period of my life.
She was the reason I stayed in the Domestic Violence relationship as I was not prepared to leave her there but the minute I had the chance I ran with her. It was hard, stressful but I would do it all over. She was my hero.
Many Domestic Violence victims to this day say I stayed in the relationship because of my pets and I so fully understand them, they are your children and you would not leave them behind to be abused so would rather take the abuse to protect them.
So as those May memories go through my mind I am blessed to have had her, we had a couple of years of freedom together where I over spoiled her with no regrets, when she passed which was one of the hardest days of my life, I waited and then adopted Layla.
Layla is my rock, she keeps me amused, makes me smile, and is blessed to have not gone through those dark days with me but instead has had the chance to have sunny ones and this month brings the sunny days to us.
So let us all count our blessings, say thanks for what we have, material items are great but they cannot measure the unconditional love of a pet and if I had to choose between the two i would go for the pet.
Layla is now off to sleep as usual while I carry on working,
With love and woofs
Layla
