Thanksgiving is a time of reflection, family, food and giving thanks.
This year I have so much to be thankful for! For my wonderful husband who is so patient with me. He listens to me, supports me, helps with the dogs and so much more. Without his support I couldn't do this rescue.
I'm thankful for my wonderful fosters, without whom Cavalier Crazy could never have saved 22 dogs (so far!) in 2014. I cannot thank them enough for taking these sweet dogs into their homes and treating them like part of the family until they find there forever homes. Of course, some of those dogs never leave and become foster failures, and I'm grateful for them too!
I'm thankful for my vet, who has helped me more times than I can count. Seeing a dog last minute, taking such great care of all the pups who have been in his care over the years. He is an angel.
I'm thankful for each and every one of my friends and supporters who have bought my calendars, referred people to adopt or foster, shared the dogs' photo and sent money to help dogs in need. They listen to my complaints and offer support. They give me advice. They keep me grounded. You guys are the best!
And I'm thankful for the many dogs that have come through rescue. Each one has been so different and so special. Each one has had a story, many times very sad, and I'm grateful to have been a part of their life for a little while. I'm so glad to have been able to help them find their perfect forever home. Along with that comes being extremely thankful for my adopters, who keep in touch and send photos and emails. I know these dogs are part of their family now, and I can't say how much that means to me.
I hope all of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your loved ones, be they family, friends or pets.
