Today we are excited to be participating in Murphy and Stanley's first ever Mayorz Marathon. Pop over to their blog to check out all the action!
We wish all the Boston Marathon runners a great and uneventful race on Monday. We send special wishes to our friend Roy, who is running in his 5th Boston as part of the American Liver Foundation Team. Lady had the privilege of being there the first year he ran. Have a great race Roy!
We also wish Lady's BFF Tonya and her son Xav a great 5 k race this weekend. They are in Boston to cheer Roy on. Since the bombing Tonya has been doing the 5 k.
Tonya was at the marathon with her then 3 year old Rowan, the year of the bombing. Due to a strange series of events both Tonya and her dad were behind schedule so neither were at the finish at the time of the explosions, although they should have been. One of the best moments of my life was finding out they were ok. They were delayed in letting their loved ones know they were safe because even though Roy was only 2 km from the finish, and went to the bus to get his stuff, and Tonya had been locked down in a hotel, neither knew what was happening. It was only later that they found out and realized their error in not spreading the news that they were safe and sound. Tonya's life lesson is, if it looks serious, even if you aren't sure what it is, let your mom and husband know you are fine!
I know the award said it was given to Hailey and Zaphod, but we all know this blog wouldn't exist without me, and therefore, the award should be mine. If this was a supporting role award, clearly that would go to Zaphod. He is a great supporting player in my life.
I would like to give a little bit of thanks to the Lady. She does do a little to make this blog possible. She does also do an OK job at taking care of me. Overall, she is pretty well trained. I will also give a little thanks to the Man. He sometimes helps me feel brave when I am scared.
I also want to thank the other supporting character in my life, Ninny. He is a good cat. I only wish he wasn't so old so I could play rough with him. That would be better.
Finally I would like to thank myself for being so full of life and joy and all the rest. The world would be boring without me. I pass this award on to everyone who makes those around them smile.
The sun may be the centre of our solar system for the planet earth, however, in our house the centre of the universe has 4 legs and a tail. That's right, it is the dogs.
Why it took so long for this to occur to me, is beyond me. I guess I was so wrapped up in life in general that I didn't step back and see it sooner.
Everything I do these days revolves around the 2 pups. They dictate: when I get up, my exercise, when I eat, how long I am out of the house, when I work, how I sleep, where in the bed I sleep, my hobbies . . . . everything. When we were house shopping 3 years ago, Hailey's needs were high on the list of must haves.
I really don't make a decision without thinking of them.
April is Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Month. The ASPCA has a "go orange for animals" campaign to help raise awareness to this cause.
We are wearing orange. We are wearing orange for all but particularly in honour of our Zaphod. Zaphod is a survivor of animal cruelty. We don't know what happened in his past, but we know it wasn't nice. We wear orange to raise awareness to help prevent other dogs from suffering like Zaphod has.
This is the adventures of an average Lady, her Man, two dogs and a senior cat.
