In reflecting back to October 1999 when I first started this path in Poodle Rescue over 16 years ago, I would like to formally thank those that help me in rescue. It's time!
~~~Thanks to those that foster for us! I can't do this alone - there are just too many dogs needing help these days!
~~~Thanks to those that adopt from us - some of you are now coming back a fourth and fifth time. We Love You!
~~~Thank you to those that encourage me to continue on - you know who you are. Should I be thanking you??? The dogs thank you!
~~~Thank you to those that get what goes on behind the rescue scene and drop me a card now and again with a donation. You understand how expensive the vet work is. You realize that rescue donations seldom if ever come close to the actual expense of the work done on the dog to get him/her ready to go "home".
~~~Thank you to those that do what I can't do...be the eyes and ears for the dogs that I may be able to help...you are out there hearing or seeing a dog that I may not see or hear about. It's important.
~~~Thank you to my vets and their staff who I admire and respect and who probably think I am the biggest pain for what I want and need for my dogs, and when I want it which is usually NOW! I would be lost without your care and expertise.
~~~To my groomers and friends, thank you for allowing me to use you and abuse you...it's not for me but for them...the dogs! Love love love you guys....
~~~To my husband, Pete, who unfortunately never signed on for this...love me love my dogs has been carried to the extreme. He is a Poodle Angel and they feel the same about him.
~~~To my family who always get put on a back burner when there is a Poodle in need. I love you all and thank you for continuing to keep me in your lives.
~~~To my crazy Poodle friends, there are no words and, unless you are a Poodle person, there is no understanding this bond.
~~~To Flora, my rock, my partner, my friend who snaps my head out of where it should not be and brings me back to reality on a regular basis. Thank you my friend.
~~~To Linda, my friend and Web Manager, always encouraging me in all ways and always making my kids look their best. Thank you!
I will probably send this on and say...oh no!!!! I forgot to say thank you...and if I have not thanked you for what you help me do in rescue, thank you because I could not do this alone. I can't do this alone....it takes a village to help these dogs get to another new beginning.
Bring them on.....
