Do you believe in love at first sight? I have to say that it happened for my husband. He was convinced I was THE ONE the minute I walked in the door. Me, not so much. It took me a while to warm up to him, but in the end it all worked out. You can read all about our disastrous first dates on my Teacherwriter blog.
This little video of Lexy and Lucky made me think of love at first sight. Animals make friends, and while some people think animals can't love, when you see a video like this, you wonder. This cat and dog are very affectionate and it's obvious they care about each other. Their cute antics and the dog's expressions are about as adorable as anything can get. It makes me want to adopt another dog.
Mariah Davis, my heroine from Shades of the Future, works at the Happy Paws Rescue Shelter as a volunteer, and her experiences have convinced her animals have feelings. Dr. Costa, the veterinarian in charge, has inspired Mariah to become a veterinarian in Honey Creek when she finishes college. She wants to help as many animals as possible find loving homes.
In honor of her hopes and dreams, I'll be donating 10% of all the royalties from the book Shades of the Future to the ASPCA. Let's hope that with all of us working together, we can put an end to animal cruelty, and let more animals have the happiness that Lexy the cat and her chihuahua friend shared.
We have a cat that came to us from a foster home, and we've saved many other pets over the years. How about you? Have you ever adopted a pet from a shelter or foster home? How do you feel about animals and love?
Enjoy the video! Be sure to watch the bonus material at the end. It's too funny!
