There was never a time in my life when our home was devoid of animals.  However, my true devotion and deeper understanding of a different kind of love came about when I was blessed with my very first dog (purchased by me).   That dog was Shanna.                                                                              
 As I saw Shanna's devotion to other dogs and animals grow, I added Brenna aka Brin, to our family. These two dogs taught me about true friendship and devotion. They were inseparable.                                                                                                                         Always adding more, bookmark us and come back soon!

My Blessings, My Dogs


Brown eyes sparkle with playful hearts,

Compact bodies so strong and smart.

Inquisitive always, curious at will,

Ready to play, or just be still.


Reaching my hand, I always find,

Nothing that compares, to humankind.

Faithful and loving, devoted friends,

Ready to play, eager to defend.


My dogs are with me no matter where,

In times of fun, or loss or despair.

A treasured gift from God above,

To show us all the meaning of love.

D. Smith-Mansell 2005



Blessings to all who open their hearts to the kingdom of animals, for they will know the joy of a deeper form of love and life.  Peace to all who care, love, and respect animals.
