Unconditional Love

The dog does not know he is homeless… M~

No wonder they say “Man’s BEST FRIEND.” This is such an interesting picture~- This man may be alone and have nothing – BUT he has some form of companionship and love. And it’s just enough… enough to keep going for tomorrow… for one more day.

What a beautiful picture and wonderful thought.  The dog is man’s best friend!  The question is, “Is man dog’s best friend?”

This would be me if I were homeless.  I would never give up my furkids and go to a shelter without them and no one should be asked to.  Pets are family members and live creatures who love us unquestionably that we are responsible for.  All shelters should have facilities for pets.  Please become part of the fight to make that happen.  When you have lost everything, love keeps you going!  M~

How to Help Pets of Homeless People

If you have the love in your heart and the room in your home, please adopt just one more pet, help someone in need keep and feed their pets and help your local shelter and rescues to upgrade their facilities and rules to include pets.  As to purely animal shelters and rescues… all should be no kill facilities!

About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.
