Mega Million Dreams

The media seems to be focused on the history making 540,000 Mega Millions lottery.   Every one talking about what would they do if they won.  Such an enormous amount of money that it causes the imagination to run wild.  And yes hearing all these stories made me think about what I would do with that kind of money.

It's interesting because honestly not a lot came to mind.  I listened as the man talked about buying a new car, paying off debt and other such things.  But I could not think of anything I truly needed, well other then being able to afford health insurance with that kind of money.  Truth be told most the things I really need cannot be obtained with money.  But I suppose desire is another story.

So I pondered it a little more, there are two things I know for sure I would do if I won.

Buy a little cottage house by the beach with lots of land so that my family could each have a house there as well.  Of course I would probably have it renovated to match many of the rooms I have on my cottage board.  Yes that would be a dream come true for me.

But that is not the most important, I would want to use the money to create a beautiful animal rescue/sanctuary where no animal would ever be turned away and could stay there until finding a loving home.  The thought alone brings tears as it's something I long to do more than anything but what I vision would cost an enormous amount of money. 

And the only other thought that really comes to mind is using the money to clean up our world, to help make it a cleaner, safer, kinder and more loving place to live.  Now I have no idea if money could help in that endeavor but just maybe it could.  Because to accomplish those big things I would probably have to pay off a lot of politicians, big business and who knows who else right?  : )   Anyway....

It's interesting hearing what people would do.  It amazes me how many people would want fancy cars, big houses, exotic vacations, designer clothes and so on.  That is the kind of stuff I don't even think of, well may be the vacations.   In my opinion it would just be nice to know I and the ones I loved were secure financially, that would simply be enough to make me happy.   As I honestly think that would remove a lot of stress from most anyone's life.

So if I win don't expect to see me on the news, nope I would never want that kind of notoriety there won't be anything fancy being bought here.  This or some kind of little cottage house would be the only clue as to if I won and the door would be painted a robin blue.  And it would be surrounded by lots of dogs!

Woof Wednesday

Welcome to Woof Wednesday.  Please meet some very special dogs that are in need of good, loving homes.  Trying to feature more dogs from various places in the hopes of saving more dogs.   Today I am featuring two sets of dogs who need to be adopted together.  Yes it might be a lot to ask but I just know some where there is some one who desires to be a mommy or daddy of two!

Sebastian and Marshall are 6 y.o. litter mates that have never been separated. These little Westie boys are well mannered, house trained, love to go on long walks, and like to have company. A fenced in yard is a must as they just love to run and play.  These boys are a real joy to be around and are very bonded, so they must be adopted together.   So let's find these little westie brothers a home together!

Sebastion and Marshall

Jackson is a wonderful little boy. He is full of energy. He is about 9 months old and full of life. He was at a high kill shelter. He gets along with all the other dogs in the house big and small.  He would make a great addition to someone's family or a great companion.

{Please keep in mind a dog is a lifetime commitment. They need attention, love and time just like we do. In addition, adding a pet to the family does cost money in the way of food, health care,training,etc. So before adopting make sure you are willing to make that kind of commitment and have the resources to do so.}
