Flash Friday 55.....
They amuse, protect, frustrate.
Give comfort, chew things, exasperate.
They shed, slobber, and bark
They enjoy crapping in the park.
Sometimes they pee on the rug, then hide under a couch.
They lick your face, even when you're a grouch.
In spite of it all.....
They are Unconditional Love
They are Unwavering Loyalty
They are Family.
I had a different 55 posted, but after I saw this pic of John Unger
wading out into Lake Superior to give his 19 year dog Schoep some
relief from the effects of arthritis, I had to write a little tribute.
John Unger....I'd like to shake your hand Brother!!
If you or anyone you know have written a Friday Flash 55
Please come tell The G-Man
I will visit, read, enjoy, comment....Then BOOK!!!
So from the most verklempt host from coast to coast
Have a Kick Ass Week-End!!!
Post Note: After this pic was posted on Face Book, John Unger was
deluged with contributions to pay for treatment for Schoep.
With over 25,000.00 donated, The Schoep Legacy Foundation was
established. Now other elderly pets from low income families have
a source of help for needed treatment. Schoep is now doing GREAT!!
