I want to thank you all for your kind words, your prayers and that powerful energy you sent my way. It truly does make a difference.
I believe like many of you do, that when one door closes, another opens. But when it’s me that’s standing in that hallway, I need you to remind me of what I believe.
I am breathing. I am reminding myself to not fight, but to go with the flow. That all things happen for a reason, including this.
Last night I thought about our current circumstances, and made some decisions about some things. I decided that it’s time to make some changes.
Keep that positive energy flowing my way as I move forward.
Rumpy is in the running for Mr. World Spay Day 2013. Thirty of you voted for him yesterday. To you I give a big hearty thank you.
For the rest of you, I offer this rationale for putting him into the race:
Recent studies have shown that one of the BEST determinants of responsible pet ownership is in providing needed medical care.
We all know that spaying of companion animals is important. But did you know that most low-cost spay/neuter programs do so much more?
They provide needed vaccinations if the animal has not yet had them.
They offer counseling to the caretaker on how to most responsibly care for that animal, including recommendations regarding veterinary care.
In other words, if we can get people and their pets into the door of a low-cost spay/neuter clinic, the likelihood they will continue to be responsible in caring for that animal increases exponentially.
We NEED to promote this vital service all around the world.
And as more people become proactive in the care of their companion animals, I believe they will also become more proactive in the care of ALL animals.
So I ask you to please help me spread this message to others by voting and by asking your friends to do so as well.
It’s not about Rumpy winning. It’s about ALL animals winning.
