Woofing Wednesday Tip of the Day: Get out and Volunteer, America

Tanner Likes Tiffany's Lap

Toni was home for a brief visit recently and that can mean only one thing--Tiffany was here too. Tanner loves Tiffany and he enjoyed taking a nap on her lap.

Today I am offering a Woofing Wednesday Tip, inspired by Tiffany. She has spent years volunteering for a local dog rescue organization. Her longevity there just about outpaces the owner! All kidding aside, Tiffany is to be congratulated for her dedication to helping homeless pets find families. She is a good example for her friends and others in the community who see her working tirelessly every weekend at the rescue's homebase inside Petsmart.

So, you guessed it. My tip of the week is to find a way to contribute. It doesn't have to have anything to do with dogs. Think of something you are passionate about and find a way to contribute. Our country needs more volunteers stepping up to fill the void. These are tough times and people like Tiffany are leading the way. So can you.

If you are a dog lover and enjoy the fresh air and free spirited play of dogs, consider Adopting a Dog Park, as a way to contribute some time to a worthy cause. Click the link to join my group, and you can talk with other volunteers who are working to help keep their own dog parks clean and healthy for everyone. Get some discussions going and we can all learn from one another. Sounds like a song, huh? Maybe we should write week.
