Thankful Thursday

Today Grete is giving thanks for all that she has. My Grete dog hates getting her picture taken more than just about anything. Point a camera at her and she runs. This past weekend Grete had an opportunity to help out other doggies that are still homeless and wanting to find their furrever families.

When Grete found out that there was a fund raiser for Family Dogs New Life she was all excited and wanted to know what she could do to help. Uh oh, turns out she had to pose for a picture. Mom's cycling buddy Bob, was taking pictures as a fund raiser for this nice shelter. Grete was unsure, but her generosity was greater than her fear, so she agreed.

Yes, she was a bit stressed, but Bob worked his magic to get a nice shot of Grete before she bolted! We promised her that we won't point the flashy box at her for awhile! She hopes to give back again when ever she can, because she knows that not all dogs have a place to call home.

Very good Grete, you should receive the "award of the day" for all you did to help out.
And it's an awesomely beautiful photograph of you, too!

Grete is beautiful, and what a kind dog to endure the camera to help other dogs. It's a gorgeous portrait too!

It was very kind of Grete to pose like that, but it was for a fury good cause! Honestly, the modeling bit isn't so bad, once you get used to it.

Grete, you are as kind and caring as your kitty sisfurs and brofurs!! That is an absolutely stunning portrait of you, you really looked quite relaxed! Great job on helping out the other woofies all the while recovering from your surgery!

That is a lovely picture of Grete! She is so pretty it is shame she doesn't like the flashy box thing, but it was very kind of her to pose in this one to help out the shelter! Kudos to you, Grete!
