~ Christmas ~ Bless The Animals and The Ones Who Love Them

The Decorated House ~ Bless The Animals. Christmas 2013. Adopt Rescue! Pottery Barn Bottlebrush Dog with Bottlebrush Trees. Christmas Decor 

We were blessed a few years ago with a rescue puppy who found us right after 
Christmas as many of you know. Probably because he came to us so close to this 
beautiful holiday, it is easy to remember to help out some incredible 
dog rescue people this time of year. The work they do day in and day out is amazing.
The world is certainly a better place for them.

Please consider making a donation to one of your local dog or 
animal rescue people, or organizations this time of year. 
You can save a life!

The cute bottle brush - sisal dog came from Pottery Barn last year. Since they are 
wire and sisal, it was easy for me to curl his tail a bit like our Cody Bear's tail is. 
He also got  some dry brushing of white paint to make him a little whiter.
Our lab mix puppy grew up to keep his pretty white color and the 
white paint made this one look more like our pup. 
And he goes perfectly with the bleached bottle brush trees. 

I hope you are enjoying this wonderful holiday
season. Slow down and eat the cookies and 
kiss your loved ones!

  2. Beautiful vignette, Donna! It's wonderful that Cody found a new home with you. Our cats and dogs are rescues too. Our cat Barney just sits on my lap and purrs :).

  3. Donna. That is beautiful and you are so right- we need to remember those poor fur babies that need homes and love. It just breaks my heart to see animals with no hope for adoption. xo Diana

    1. Hi Pat,
      I know what you mean. So many times I think how much work it would be, but oh so rewarding, to have enough land to help more animals. The people who do that are amazing!
      Merry Christmas!

  6. Boy thank you for this post. We have two mini doxies that are brother and sister. They are the love of our lives. I see so much animal cruelty on the pages of FB and it just rips my heart out. I look at our two babies and can't even imagine hurting and mistreating something that just wants to be loved so unconditionally. Animals should never be forgotten especially during this time of year.

    1. Hi Cynthia,
      It will always amaze me how really unconditionally our beloved animals do love us. Well, actually Cody is a little treat monster, he only does what you want him to if he sees a treat. But he is still the best companion we could ever imagine.

      It so warms my heart to see all the people who do love their dogs (and cats) and give them the best home they can.

      Merry Christmas!

  7. Hi Donna,
    This is an excellent reminder to donate to an animal shelter!! Where would our lives be without the beloved pets who grace our lives by putting their sweet souls into making our house a home? Your ornament is so special! You really did make it look like Cody Bear. Interesting post for me as I have felt so blessed all morning by our beautiful Coco the Cat.

    Merry Christmas to you and yours!
    Love,
    Constance
