Almost Perfect Pets

Dad is making the post today, so go easy on him.

Dad has made an acquaintance on another forum he frequents, Mary Shafer is an author of a book called "Almost Perfect Pets."

Her book and blog revolve around folks who have adopted Special Needs or Handicapped pets. Some heart touching stories in her book, we are not sure whether to laugh or cry at times, so if you get a chance, go on over and give Mary a visit and a "HOWDY" at:

Thank You Mary !!!

for caring about our "fur-friends" that society has deemed "unacceptable." We need more people in the world like you !!!

Send your hot weather over here...big snowflakes are falling again.

We're on our way over. There is a place in heaven for those of you whose pets are perfect in other ways than what most people think.

(Good job on the post)

A note from Addie and Lucie's mom...

I know, crazy weather right! It is such a tease... beautiful during the week and freezing on the weekend. My friend at work reminded me that this has been happening every year around the same time. I guess I block that out. My allergies don't know what to do!

Stay bundled up today outside!

Hi dad!

I will certainly check out the book. You may not know but my mom's career is dedicated to working with people w/disabilities. She certainly can transfer much of the sentiment to my work.

What a nice blog, thanks for sharing with us. And I to believe Gus is the leader. I think Callie wants to be and Gus humors her time to time. =)

I checked out her blog & I think it's great! I left her a comment over there & we'd love to share the story of our two special kitty sistas who are also not perfect & who people rejected.

Butt sniffs,

After the way my mom cried when Baby Love died, we better warn her to turn off the sprinklers when she goes to that blog!!

Hey, everyone who stopped over to visit us at AlmostPerfectPets blog! Thanks so much for visiting, and if you have stories of your own "almost perfect" pets to share, write to Mary at almostperfect AT Of course, you'll have to take out the spaces and replace AT with @ so the mean compubots don't spam Mary to death. Tummy rubs to everyone!
