There is a statue on the Texas Tech campus. The statue is of Will Rogers and his horse. I have walked, driven, or bicycled past that statue hundreds of times, but I know little of Will and his country wit. I do, however, often run across quotes that make me like him all the better.
I had a lot of time over the weekend to hang out with the dogs: Condo, Sasha, and Maya at our house; Quiz, Chance, and Lacy at Keith and Melissa's. In general, I like dogs better than people.
Bonus dog/Heaven quote for the day:
"Heaven goes by favor. If it went by merit, you would stay out and your dog would go in." Mark Twain
All of that is to say that there was an article about Lubbock Animal Services and
Policy-based euthanasia at city of Lubbock animal shelters decreasing; still too many, officials say
Adoptable Animals at Lubbock Animal Services
May you choose your friends by their virtues.
