A Dog's Life

I am suffering from a mild form of writer's block at the moment - I need to be working on my thesis, but I'm finding it difficult to even pour through the background research, much less start writing the literature review. Sigh. So, I figured I'd post something here and then go back to work - but I'm finding myself short of inspiration here, as well. Not boding well for getting any work done tonight, I gotta tell ya.

As I look around the sitting room, though, I see dogs sleeping contentedly on every available surface. Yes, dogs are not something we're short of around here, mostly because I have trouble resisting a stray, and my husband really stuggles with it. And I was thinking, that must be the life - no worries about bills or deadlines - just curling up in a warm lap or by a warm fire. Roll over, and somebody scratches your belly. Push a food dish with your nose, or look pitiful, and somebody gives you some food. Yes, that's the life!

Now, I realize that all dogs don't have the pampered life of my dogs, so I am posting a link to click that supports rescue efforts for dogs (and cats) whose lives aren't quite as cushy as our lucky pets. http://www.theanimalrescuesite.com/ If you have a few minutes, please consider clicking - the advertisers donate money for each click!

In the meantime, I'm going to go search for cures for writer's block - wish me luck!

you need to put some photos in your blogs so we can see the dogs, the farm and such. Sounds like they all have a great life there running around on the farm.

I to would love to be a dog - except I don't want to roll in horse poop!
