Students March for Their Lives
Did you participate in a March yesterday? I wish I could have. Instead, I watched the moving moments on television and my computer with tears in my eyes. The crowds were amazing. The program was amazing. What these students put together in just a little over a month was amazing. Almost a million people marched in Washington, they were over 800 marches around the nation and the world. It gives me so much hope, that just maybe, this time there will be change and the days of “thoughts and prayers” could lessen. The kids are our future and I think the NRA and the politicians may have met their match. Hope! Change! That’s what we need.
On a lighter note, Friday was National Puppy Day. My puppies had a busy week. Wednesday they went to the groomer and were shaved of all their fur to get ready for Spring and Summer. Not a usual cut for border collies/blue heeler mixes, but it sure takes care of the Spring shedding and keeps them cooler as temp rise. Oreo and Nera Belle are sisters, one looks like a border collie and one looks like a blue heeler. As you can see from their pictures Nera Belle loves her new do, Oreo not so much.
Then on Saturday, they made about an hour trek to their vet. For puppies that are 14 years old, they are in pretty good shape. Both have a bit of arthritis, Oreo has lost most of her hearing, something all of us including Nera are adjusting to, but they are both playful and loyal canine companions.
On their way home that picked up a passenger, my granddaughter Natalie. It was time for a sleepover with us. She always brings excitement to this house and fun for both the humans and the puppy dogs.
