Visiting The Homeless

When my mom posted this picture of me yesterday, I was on my may to visit my moms special friends!


Every other Monday night my mom leaves me at home, alone, with dad. 

All.  Night.  Long!

She helps out with this Ministry called The Way of Hope and they help provide homeless women and children a warm, safe place to stay at night. My mom loves going and she is always coming home going on and on about the women she meets! She thought I might like to meet some of them, and I was pretty excited!!


Here is Shelia and her friend Billy.

Mom didn’t get many pictures of the ladies because they don’t like having their pictures taken, but I sure wished she would have snapped one of me with these cute little girls.  She was not sure how I would react around little girls because I am never around little kids, so she was holding me tight, but I did so good!!!  As if I would be anything but on my best behavior!  Geeze mom!

I will try from now on not to have a mini melt down when she leaves me to spend the night with these ladies!  I wish they allowed dogs, because I could quickly learn to love helping mom and these wonderful ladies!  Oh well!  Maybe I will get to make some more short visits with mom!!

  4. First congrats on your win from Fred and Gloria!
    I'm glad you got to go with your mom. I go with my MOM when she goes to the shelter. I get to go 3 or 4 times a month. They have the nicest people there. Plus I am trying to help raise money for the PET AREA of the new faclity they are building.
    I hope ya get to keep going.

  5. Hi Higgins, looks like you got some pretty special cuddles there. My my Mum thinks it looks like a great place where your Mum helps. Dexter

  7. What an interesting day Higgins. Much more fun than staying home with dad, I bet. Humans always think the worst of us. I don't know why. As if you'd have done anything worse than chewing a toe.

    Ahhh well, next time x

  8. Thats a good job your Mum is doing. Play your cards right and you'll get invited down there all the time! Deccy x
