Well, The Blood Tests Are Back

and I have Hypothyroidism to add to my list of ailments.

This means pills.

But it also means cheese.

Shiba Rescue in Japan

After careful consideration of examining a number of websites and their statistics of money vs. aid, etc., I recommended that The Woman donate to the following:

The Animal Miracle Foundation

Several follow-ups have proven that they are indeed working hard in the areas of devastation, as well as helping reunited families and dogs, as well as help with the evacuation of dogs and the removal of those who did not survive.

They were an instrumental force in Hurricane Katrina and they are once more proving their dedication to the health and welfare of both pets and pet owners once more.

If you feel uncomfortable donating to them, then I recommend donating to the Humane Society International as they are not bound by one country.

Overall, remember that supplies are needed as well as money. Please note on the Animal Miracle Foundation's website the types of supplies that they will benefit from. This includes large garbage bags, something that none of us really wants to think about.

I can now pee in the back yard without interference from snow. No longer to I have to blaze a trail to get to my favorite shrubbery. In fact, I can even find my favorite shrubbery now!

The weather is warm enough and the roads safe enough that we can ride once more in the car. The Woman even had it cleaned up just for us to mess up once again! During the past week, we have traveled to:

The Bank
The Park
The Regular Shopping Route
The Place Where The Woman Gets Paid
One of the Places That The Woman Works
One of the Places Where The Woman Used to Work
The Liquor Store (several times)
Our Local Pub (NACHOS!)

and overall be able to get out and about. It just feels good to feel the dirt under my paws and be able to find all my favorite pee spots once more, and know that life is good.

I Am Shiba. Life Is Good.
