on wet, foggy days i am a big fan of some delicious soup!
that's home-made miso soup made from fermented soya bean paste (you know i love anything fermented!), dried seaweed and mushrooms! it was delicious!
and now for a little cutie!
her name is Cleo and i wish that she were ours. but as you can tell from her stoic face - she is a strong American - strong, proud and free. Cleo is one of the amazing dogs from Dogs Saving Dogs (http://www.dogssavingdogs.com/).
i first learned about Dogs Saving Dogs from Brigid over at Home on the Range. Dogs Saving Dogs is an unique dog rescue that offers high-quality, locally-engraved charm sets - a necklace for you and a charm for your dog's collar - with 50% of all revenue going to save the dog. the charm set is personalized with the name of the dog that you helped save! i just received my set and they are beautiful!!!
in case you can't read what the necklace says, it reads "Cleo" and underneath it says "I helped save". Isn't that beautiful????
please go and check out the Dogs Saving Dogs website. i was thrilled with the site, it's awesome goals and it's unique approach to saving dogs! the fact that after i contacted the site asking for information and got a prompt and lovely response in under 12 hours shows me just how much this company cares about what they are doing, and about their customers.
i am saving my charm set and plan to purchase a few more between now and Christmas. Cape Bretoners love their dogs and these will make beautiful gifts to give to our friends. and then one day, when the time is right, and we get our own rescue dog, our dog will proudly wear another charm of another dog that we will have helped save.
i know that we have a lot of dog lovers as readers and if you could just pass on word of mouth about this wonderful organization, that would be great!
