My Funny Valentine

DSCN7683My funny Valentine


Sweet comic Valentine


You make me smile with my heart


Your looks are laughable




Yet you’re my favorite work of art


Is your figure less than Greek?


Is your mouth a little weak?


When you open it to speak?


Are you smart?


But don’t change a hair for me


Not if you care for me


Stay little Valentine, stay

DSCN8401ART_498772_JoeyIMG_0221IMG_7147We failed at fostering Joey in 2017, thankfully. Joey was the Charlie Brown Christmas tree of dogs: health problems, extreme dental problems, separation anxiety, stalker dog, a penchant for peeing on the couch, and later aggression that may have been caused by his brain tumor, but as you can see, he was a great dog. I was hesitant to adopt a senior dog, but I can tell you it was the best experience ever. The time was not as long as I wanted it to be, but it was  twice as sweet because I knew Joey would not be mine forever, and we made a difference in Joey’s life. If you help animals, thank you for your work. If you need  or want a dog, please adopt.

Special thanks to:

Lollie, for bring Joey to me!

United Hope For Animals and the folks who work at Baldwin Park, where Joey was housed and would not have survived. These folks are amazing:

Joey’s dentist, Dr. Lynn:

Joey’s Vets, Dr. Swimmer and Dr. Gill

And to Alicia, Nancy, and Jimmy for caring for Joey when I was gone.
