  • Good morning Dr. Pia,
    It is so sad to know that so many animals don't have homes. I sure hope someone adopts Roxy. I bet she gets along just fine with only three legs. Just look at how happy she looks.
    Your blog was short today so I will be too. I hope all the animals in today;s photo gallery get adopted and I hope all the Glue Squad members are all going to have a good day.
    Love to all,

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    And hello to you too Dr. Pia. What good words to help one get through the day. In a town near here a dog has been accused of attacking and biting a child. The owner says that it wasn’t her dog, but three other children say it was. Poor little pup; if only the owner would have made sure the dog couldn’t get to the street where the children were. Now the dog will suffer for the owner’s lack of security for her animal. I would like to run loose on the streets too, but that wouldn’t be good for me. I think I will take a nap and try to forget about this poor little pup.
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • Happy Thursday Dr. Pia!
    I love the selection of quotes with the images selected...I also pray that Roxy will have a furever home.

    Bless all those none-adopted animals...in my prays as always.

    One of my favorite quotes is from my Family Crest banner......"Dum Spiro Spero"
    While I live, I hope; or, While there's life, there's hope.

  • Hi Dr. Pia, Your photos today are absolutely darling and the comments are charming-I love all of them! So nice to see Minnow again-what a doll! The dog and kitty in photo #5 are so adorable! Sure hope sweet Rocky finds a great home very soon! The Adoptable Animals in Today's Photo Gallery are so beautiful and I hope everyone of them will find a great, lovable home real soon! Thanks for sharing and have a great day and weekend, Dr. Pia and family! Hope all of our Glue Squaders have a great day, too! Love, Jan and DDR

  • Hi Dr.Pia,
    Loved all the photos and words of wisdom today. You are the best. Mom and Dad had a black lab before my time who had bone cancer and had to have a back leg amputated, and she did great for a long time. Hope everyone gets furever homes. Love to you and Minnow.
    Love & licks,

  • Good morning everybody!
    Dr Pia, you break my heart. I would like them all to be my friends. That would be quite a gang! Great quotes, too. I really liked the one from Booker Washington.
    I was so sad to read Kirby's story. It is the owners responsibility to keep us safe & secure. I would love to snoop around the neighborhood too. I do know where my front door is 'cause that's where my food is! LOL
    Great day to all my Glue Squad friends. Special shout out to our Basil & Cora Belle.
    Your Pal,

  • wow..didn't think I would have anytime to post today..but here I am..James is watching me while Lucinda is at the dr., I"m sure some kind soul will adopt Roxy...yes, Kirby, the poor dog that ran loose suffers...some people just should not have any pets..or for that matter children...thanks Dr. Pia, love the quotes..so far today I have had treats, rode on the mini-tractor, watched the propane delivery guy get stuck in the yard, helped James with some outdoor projects ( my job was sit in the yard and watch for any sort of critter) now i hear something about more treats, my meds and a nap..later, cora-belle p.s. hope Lucinda brings me a piece of maple bar..(I love those things) from town..bet she does!

  • I must make a comment that I haven't seen much on your web site about adopting the Greyhounds.
    I'm not sure that many people know or realize that these big dogs make wonderful apartment dogs, and how great these dogs are for working families most of these dogs are like any other dog, great with children.
    They truly are precious animals, and for some of them their lives haven't been the best, but most do come out of it with smiling faces, and are ready to go on to have a loving life, and look forward to having a great family. These dogs sleep generally about 18 hrs. a day. They're not into racing or running after the bunny so much any more, they're really into just wanting to be with their families and having a soft area to lie their bodies down on. They truly don't eat as much as one would think, most eat about 4 cups of food a day, they only require a short walk outside, or if you have a fenced area, then it's just a short walk around the area and back in the home is where they want to be. Greyhounds are NOT outside dogs, and don't like being out there. Because they have so little fur, if your cold they're cold, if your hot, they're hot too. They really are such easy dogs to care for and only wanting to make their owners happy.
    I hope you'll look into having an adoption groups on your show, and will speak about on your web. They're many Greyhound Adoption Groups all around the United States, BAGA(Bay Area Greyhounds Adoptions) is just one of the many in Fl. they're are really many groups around the US that help to find homes for these dogs.They're really very different than other breeds of dogs, they're really not just any kind of dog.
    I do hope Martha will consider getting an adoption Group on her show to help out these wonderful animals and to show why it's important that we get good homes for them.
    Thanks, Linda Heck Lakeland,Fl.
