White Dog finally nodded her approval and YoYoMa stood up to release the computer keyboard he had been protecting under his belly. I had been pleading all afternoon for a chance to do something other than sleep, attempt to eat, sip water, and rush to the answer nature's call. "The office IS closer to the bathroom," I begged, "and I have slept over 35 hours these past two days. Please I am going crazy with not being able to do anything."

"Only an hour," cautioned my fairy godmother as I grabbed the device and headed for the office...followed of course, by my furry health care staff which has not left me unattended for a single moment since the sickies struck.

Wasting no time, I reconnected the keyboard and fired up my computer. "Warm up time doesn't count," I said giving White Dog "The Look." Already I was composing this posting in my head so that I could type as soon as Blogger granted access.

In light of the destruction and flooding in Colorado and the Northern parts of my home state, I wanted this
White Dog and The White Dog Army
Wonderful World Wednesday
to share the news of both animals in need and the beautiful cooperative efforts being made to provide shelter, vet care, and locating separated families. There is still much to be done as the cleanup and recovery will take time. And help is still sought in helping to meet the costs of feeding and housing those displaced. But comfort and hope can be found in knowing that there are already feet and paws on the ground making a difference and raising awareness. We ask you to help in any way you can...donating...sharing the word...sending a prayer to the Universe.

Almost as Many Pets As People Rescued in Colorado Floods
After a week of relentless rains and historic flooding in the state of Colorado, at least 12,000 people have already been evacuated, many by helicopter, over the hundreds of square miles affected.

Among those rescued have been hundreds of animals, including dogs, cats, goats, horses, cows and more.

"There were almost as many pets as people getting off the evacuation helicopters today," the Larimer County Sheriff's Office posted on its Facebook page on Saturday.

I hope that you feel better very soon.

It has been so heart-warming to see how seriously the rescuing of animals has been taken here. In the midst of lots of loss, that's a silver lining.
