  1. Hi Mimi,
    please post it, that’s what they are there for, just make sure to include my name as the author. I’m popping over to read about Cassidy right now.
    All the best, Nancy

  2. Hi Nancy,
    By some odd chance, you know how that is, I came across your blog! I’m very excited, because I feel we share the same point of view on many things. I love dogs, and I agree with
    what you say in referring to an animal that has been rescued as “my rescue”. It always does seem as if somebody wants kudos for that. It is a living creature, not something for one to bolster their ego, right? I look forward to reading your blogs in years to come.

    1. Hi Stacy. I’m guilty of saying “my rescue” a lot! My motivation is not so much wanting kudos for rescuing my sweet girl as it is wanting people to know that “she was like that when I got her.” It’s not wanting people to think that I failed in her early training, or did something cruel to cause her problems. Still all comes back to ego. Sad, isn’t it?
