    Erin and I took my lil sister and went to the local shelter today. Austin Pets Alive is a great shelter that takes really good care of their animals, and we wanted to help out a bit. We went and played with some dogs, walked them, and gave them lots of love. If I had a car I'd happily be a regular volunteer. The dogs all seemed really happy to have us there. The only trouble was wanting to take a few of them home.

    Wish I had taken some photos.

    The end

    Me too, Renee! It makes my physically ill to go to the shelter and not be able to take one home... not even to foster. :( I just donate monthly.

    Thats so great! I bet the dogs loved having you and your little sister. It's really great to get involved with volunteering, it looks great on a resume and it helps make communities whole.

    Tons of good kharma vibes for you two!

    :)

    Erin is like this too. I have a lot of fun, and try to stay positive. She has to compose herself every few minutes to keep from crying.
