...the Government of the United States, which gives to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance, requires only that they who live under its protection should demean themselves as good citizens in giving it on all occasions their effectual support. Geo. Washington Feb. 22, 1732

Molly on Monday (with Sadie)


Molly here,   B G says hello.

Here are some pictures which Jon sent of our walk in the woods with Liz.


You can click on the pictures to make them larger and see  them better,









 We had a lot of rain this week so Sadie and I spent a lot of time resting and when it thundered and flashed we did not like it.  I hid out under the recliner and Sadie climbed up to be with B G.
Then it was nice out.
This is part of our back yard.
B G took this picture with his camera.  He shared it on Instagram and it is his new wallpaper.  He likes it.  He calls it "Wild does my garden grow."
I spent some time looking at it.







Sadie was more interested in having her picture taken.
She poses pretty.











Then B G called us in for treats..  We like those.




Even Sadie perks up for those.



B G made me do tricks.  Sadie does not do any tricks.







Then we settled down for a rest.

Then we were ready for our close-up.  
Come back when you want.  

Woof!

A Scared Dog Learns How To Be Happy Again.

Seeing a dog living on the streets is devastating. Especially, one that doesn’t want to be rescued because she’s so scared. But that doesn’t mean you give up, right? Clarabelle took a lot of coaxing, and patience, but with some time, she does realize that this rescue is the best thing for her. You have to watch this until the very (very) end to really appreciate how much Clarabelle has changed now that she can trust again.

Found For Friday

A kindergarten pupil told his teacher he'd found a cat, but it was dead.
"How do you know that the cat was dead?" she asked her pupil.
"Because I pissed in its ear and it didn't move," answered the child innocently.
You did WHAT ? ! ?" the teacher exclaimed in surprise.
"You know,"explained the boy, "I leaned over and went 'Pssst!' and it didn't move."
