‘We are tired of shoveling !&@ snow!’
(Even the dogs got fed up with it.)

Hi Friends, 
Well it was a rough winter. Hopefully, it is over now.

If I am still wearing a winter coat this time, next newsletter, please put me out of my misery.

PMI Lakeshore


Women’s Crisis Services of Waterloo Region


Centennial College Support Staff


Saskatchewan Workers’ Compensation Board



Keep doing the great work that you are doing!



Next month, I look forward to many working opportunities but I’m especially proud to  part of ‘ A Night of Laughter’ on April 16th in Brantford for our friend, Gord Paynter.



I was also blessed this month to spend a day swimming in open waters with these beautiful gentle creatures. Amazing what you find in Lake Ontario…haha

This story about a young waiter who took the time to serve dinner to the homeless was particularly uplifting!



As you know by now, I am a huge animal lover. Animals are such a great way to relieve stress for crazy human beings like us.
When I heard about the Shriners in Los Angeles, I was so grateful to see that old dogs CAN learn new tricks.


I continue to share shelter updates on #DOGSTAR in the hopes of finding forever homes for needy dogs, cats, rabbits, etc.
Here were just a couple of my favourite stories this month.

#DOGSTAR MORGAN 8 year old retriever cross with 3 legs ADOPTED from Toronto Humane Society.


#DOGSTAR BOOM. ADOPTED! Winner of the Jack Nicholson look alike contest! (I think so anyway) “Heeeere’s Johnny.” BOOM was adopted from the Toronto Humane Society.

#DOGSTAR Tail Wagging Follow Up STELLA

“February 18th 2013 roughly 11pm, some schmuck lets a dog out of their car and leaves it at the back of a Walmart parking lot to fend for itself. They were ‘kind’ enough to leave a blanket and a sealed package of hotdogs for the dog to get by…( for the rest of the story, click here
