Adopted and Adored dogs

We found these wonderful stamps issued by Australia Post :
Here's the story behind them (from Australia Post web site) :
"This special issue seeks to raise awareness of responsible dog ownership and support the dedicated work of organisations re-homing lost and abandoned dogs.
Australia has one of the highest levels of dog ownership worldwide, with an estimated 40 per cent of Australian households having at least one dog. This means that there are around 4 million dogs nationwide. But while Australia enjoys a high level of dog ownership, a high number of dogs are admitted into shelters. During 2008-09, the RSPCA (Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) alone recorded 69,383 admissions into its shelters across the country.
Each of the dogs featured in this stamp issue has been given a second chance. All five have spent time in a shelter before being adopted into adoring new families."
Well done Australia Post for telling everyone how wonderful it is to adopt a homeless doggy !

I've put on my nurse's uniform because tomorrow my Mum is having an operation for her varicose veins; she'll only be there for the day, but I figured the humans at the hospital may need my help because I'm the one who knows best how to look after her :

In our next post, we'll announce the winner of our book contest, tell you all about the book and who's in it, and how to get it - how exciting !

To love and to be loved is the greatest happiness of existence.

How wonderful for your country to make stamps like those to let people know about pets that need homes. Grammy says she will pray for your Mom for a quick recovery, and we know that you will take very good care of her. We can hardly wait to get one of your books! Grammy ordered one and paid for it through PayPal tonight! The CCC
