Once you have had a wonderful dog, a life without one, is a life diminished.

Dog of the Month – August 2014

In August, in the Midwest, normally it’s hotter than… well… A lot of other places! That can make you dream of cool ocean breezes. The wind in your hair, fresh air, salt spraying against your face. But you’re from the midwest! You don’t know how to sail! You need a real sailor to help get you where you’re going.

That’s where our Dog of the Month, Sailor, can help. Just listen to this song she wrote you, to get you in the mood to Come Sail Away.

I’m cuddling away, set an open course for the couch and TV
I’ve got to be free, free to face this life with my forever family
BBRH calls me Sailor, life shouldn’t be hard
We’ll search for bunny rabbits in every yard
And I’ll try, oh Lord, I’ll try… to cuddle on!

They said come take me home, come take me home
come take me home with you!
come take me home, come take me home
come take me home with you!
