I received an email from a cousin tonight.  I loved the personal note he included, as well as the story he forwarded.  I wish Mr. Misha and I had the cash/space/bigger bed to adopt more rescue dogs. 

The back seat of this rescue van almost looks like our bed at night, every night we have four rescue dogs in bed (two are mother and son, Beatrice and Dante both deaf and blind) and two others, a Peak, Judy and a Long Haired Chihuahua , Pippi, ALL physically abused, and ALL from the Bill Foundation, then during the night the four feral kittens now house cats, a year later, pile into the bed to keep warm on cold winter nights..........that's wife and I, plus eight other 
little ones, get up at night and lose your spot, then its the remainder of the night on the couch.

Animals know how to care for one another 
just like friends do for each other.  

Kansas Tornado.....A Great Story
After the tornado (Greensburg, Ks.) 
The story begins with the rescuers finding this poor 
little guy they named Ralphie.  Someone had already 
taken him under their wing, but they weren't equipped 
to adopt.

Ralphie, scared and starved, joined his rescuers...  

I wouldn't think anything could live thru this...but we
were wrong.

This little lady also survived that wreckage.  

Here she is just placed in the car - scared, but safe. 

and then..they are no longer alone!

Instant friends, they comforted each other while 
in the car.  

Add two more beagles found after that...  the more, 
the merrier! 

Oh boy, a new traveler to add to the mix...
(Note:  the cat coming over the seat needing shelter...)  


Now just how is this going to work? 
(and remember they are all strange to one another)

It's going to work just fine, thank you very much!

Wow!  The things we learn from our animal friends...  
If only all of mankind could learn such valuable 
lessons as this.Lessons of instant friendship.
Of peace and harmony  by way of respect for one another -- 
no matter one's color or creed.

These  animals tell you... 
"It's just good to be alive and with others."  
Yes, it surely is.
