Anais had a beautiful 18th birthday.
Do you know what was her best present ? It was Ollie ! She had always dreamed of having a Papillon, but when Ollie came into our lives, we couldn't put him in a box until her birthday, so we put him in a box (but not for long, he didn't really want to stay) to celebrate her birthday.
I wanted to join in the fun :
And so Did Amelie and Matthew :
I would have loved to have this cake; it won second prize at the Royal Melbourne Show, but I think it should have won first prize !
Dad says I'm going to need to have a lot of patience; but what is it ?
This book says that patience is "an ability or willingness to suppress restlessness or annoyance when confronted with delay."
That sounds a bit hard for me, but why do I need it ?
Well it turns out the printer rang today and said the binder used the wrong glue for our book "Paw Steps to Happiness" and the glue he is going to use takes 3 days to dry. I think my friends are going to need it too, but I'm sure they prefer having a book where the pages don't fall out !
Be Kind to Animals Week is an initiative of Edgar's Mission, a farm sanctuary in Kilmore, Victoria which currently cares for over 200 rescued animals.
This week was launched to:
"Honour the animals of this world that have stood by us; who have been loyal, loving, and protective of their human friends.
Inspire people to create change to make this world a better place for animals
Educate and promote awareness of some of the issues faced by animals in our community
Encourage kindness to all animals - including humans and promote awareness of some of the issues faced by animals in our community."
What a great idea ! Unfortunately we only found about it today and it ends tomorrow, but we think every week should be like that.
Titus Maccius Plautus
Patience and perseverance have a magical effect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish.
