I do not make New Year's Resolutions but I do have New Year's Hope.

I hope for universal Peace. I hope that the world leader's are elected for their knowledge and commitment to try to save our green earth.

I hope that more people will realize that the little ones are not the only pets that need forever homes. They have so much love to give. I urge you to please visit a shelter and help an older pet, the fullfilment and joy you will have will fill your heart everyday. I cannot put into words the feeling you get when you look into the eyes of an animal whose life you have saved.

Most of all, I have hope that we help the ones who cannot verbalize for our help. Stop taking away their homes. Stop hunting them. Stop using them for testing when it is no longer a neccessity. Be their voice.

This is what I want for the New Year. It is what I want every New Year. If I keep wishing for Hope I know it will happen. I will never give up my Hope.

My Love For Animals

by Katherine James

Animals are loyal,
loving and obedient.
Caring and affectionate,
Gorgeous as can be!

Animals are friends,
Best friends to me.
Always standing by you,
As willing as can be.

Always underestimated,
But still they exist.
Nothing will ever hurt them more,
Than hatred and mistrust.

Always there to talk to,
Although they don't reply.
You see it in their eyes,
And know that they'll stand by.

They save life's,
And help the blind.
But still we do not see,
That animals weren't made as slaves,
But as friends for you and me!!!


  1. Very beautiful words. I agree with you 100%. I have hope for these things also. Happy New Years!

  2. Good Morning, Sue,
    Yes, a pet makes your house a home...and there are so many that need a family to take them in.

    Happy New Year to You and Yours. ~Natalie

  3. Thank you, Sue. There's nothing sadder than an animal homeless or abused. My two cats now have
    a loving and safe home, and I hope to do the
    same for a dog (if I can convince the "evil kitty"
    that he really doesn't hate dogs.
    Happy New Year,

  4. Sue,
    Could not agree more!
    Wishing you and your family the very best in the New Year!

  5. Amen to everything you said! Happy New Year to you and yours!


  6. My hopes and wishes too. I've got 8 wonderful loving pets at present and have been rescuing pets all my life. They need us :o) Happy New Year!

  7. A few years ago we adopted a Golden Oldie beagle, a former laboratory dog, when she was 12 years old. She lived to be sixteen and a half and brought us a lot of pleasure in the time she was with us. I hope we made her last years happy, she became very much a part of our family.
    Wishing you a very Happy 2012.

  8. Beautiful! I am with you on everything you have said! Happy New Year to you, to your family and to your friends ;o)

  9. No truer words could be spoken. Hugs!
