Whew! What a week this has been. I’ve watched my human mom bring five new fosters into the house. Thankfully they aren’t all staying here but who does she think I am? The Energizer Bunny? I need my sleep and this disruption causes me to lose a nap or four. Yesterday, I only slept 19 hours. What is this world coming to?

I don’t understand the holidays. When the tree goes up, why do some humans send their pets to shelters? Human mom tried to explain there is a cycle to the rescue world but I don’t think she understands it either. One of the new girls, Cindy Lou Who is gorgeous. Not English Mastiff gorgeous but Neapolitan gorgeous with wrinkles and giant folds of skin with drool hanging everywhere. People are going crazy for her but she was dropped off at a kill shelter so not everyone thinks she is pretty enough to keep. It got me to thinking and that caused me to lose even more sleep.

Humans choose to chase beauty but they can’t always handle beauty when they have it. Maybe they should look inside where beauty is only found by those who take the time to get to know someone. Some of my best friends are ugly dogs, like my sister Kimber.
