Christmas Kisses

This catchy tune, by Canadian songwriter and musician Serena Ryder, is one of my new favourite Christmas songs.  The video will melt your heart!

Don’t forget your four-legged friends this holiday season, and those still waiting for their forever homes.  Please donate to your local animal shelter and rescue centres.

The Shelter Buddies Reading Program

This is such a great idea.


“The Shelter Buddies Reading Program at the Humane Society of Missouri was designed to help our shelter dogs become more adoptable. Participants sit outside of the dogs kennel and read to them, which helps shy dogs learn to relax around people, while teaching high-energy dogs that calm behavior is desirable. When children read stories to the dogs, it also helps them develop their own reading skills.”
