Getting a dog isn't a gift. It's a responsibility. But who's to say who benefits more? For in learning to care for a sentient being...we grow up. So: please rescue, vs. buying from a breeder or pet shop. You can adopt any breed. And millions of pets are killed, every year.

"Think of it as a stew. When my hubby makes his delicious chili or shrimp creole, I know it will be richer, spicier, and all-around more delish the next day. After resting in the fridge. Rest = the magic."

Adopting a dog is a daily commitment, and can be costly (forget plastic toys or cute sweaters, invest in training, checkups, and not-plastic-filled dog beds). If your dog is acting out, that's on us. They need more activity, then training, then affection. ~ @waylonlewis 

"You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And You are the one who'll decide where to go..." ~ Dr. Seuss

"A mother once called into #PBS , asking if Mr. Rogers could send an autograph to her daughter. She was suffering from seizures and set to have brain surgery. When Mr Rogers heard about it, he flew to see her in the hospital. He even brought his puppets along." #MisterRogers

@ProjectLincoln  What David said. And remove Rep. Boebert. Anyone complicit in an insurrection has no place in our democracy. Debate and disagreement is welcome. Violence is not.

"The only way to live is by accepting each minute as an unrepeatable miracle." ~ Jack Kornfield

@davidweissman3  Jim Jordan isn't about public service, democracy, or truth. He's about scoring meaningless points that heighten conflict. We're all Americans. We're waiting for him to work for all of us.
