With the frigid conditions that have been with us for the last few days, it is with a heavy heart that I know there are dogs and cats forced to endure being confined out in the brutal cold. Have you seen dogs left out in in kennels with little to no shelter, huddled on up trying to keep from freezing? Dogs that are tied up with nothing more than a thin plastic dog kennel?

The numbers are staggering. York Adopt a Pet took in a record breaking 525 cats and kittens in 2018. Thankfully our adoption numbers were up so we are once again at about the same number of cats and kittens at the shelter and in foster care.

Brody and Minnie

Jan 11, 2019

Everyone is familiar with Mickey and Minnie the Disney mice and synonym for “cheerful.” Well, I was cheering not too long ago when I read my friend Megan Linnell and her family, Tom, and twins Brody and Hailey, had adopted a special needs Chihuahua puppy and named her “Minnie.”

Bob’s beloved 96-year-old Aunt Arlene slipped the bonds of earth early on Christmas Eve morning. At only “4-foot nothing,” she was the epitome of spunkiness and toughness. She was courageous, independent, determined and had extreme care for others.

Yes dear friends, rumors of our wiener dog demise are true. Good Wife Norma and I have indeed adopted a wiener dog. Her name is Annie and we’re told she’s four years old.

We will soon welcome the New Year 2019. Life is constantly changing in the cycle of life. We lose beloved family members, friends, coworkers and neighbors. It will be 13 years this coming spring since my dad passed away. As the holidays approach my thoughts go back to my childhood and my family. I may be repetitious in this column as I write again how he helped to shape my life by living his life as an example of compassion for all animals.
