Blackhawks Training Camp Festival

Thursday, September 18th, 2008

This Saturday, September 20th, is the first ever Blackhawks Training Camp Festival at the United Center. Admission is $5 and it includes entry into the United Center for a Blackhawks’ public practice and all other activities at the festival. It goes from 8am to 4pm. The training camp festival seems like it’s going to be a lot of fun, especially for families, as there will be 3-on-3 street hockey tournaments and air hockey tables, among other things. The Blackhawks really are trying to increase their fan base as well as fan involvement and it’s working. I’ll be there on Saturday.

A Pet’s 10 Commandments

Monday, September 15th, 2008

I don’t know where this originated as I receive it as an email.  These 10 commandments are especially touching now that I have found out my Rottweiler has lymphoma.

1. My life is likely to last 10-15 years. Any separation from you is likely to be painful.

2. Give me time to understand what you want of me.

3. Place your trust in me. It is crucial for my well-being.

4. Don’t be angry with me for long and don’t lock me up as punishment.  You have your work, your friends, your entertainment, but I have only you.

5. Talk to me. Even if I don’t understand your words, I do understand your voice when speaking to me.

6. Be aware that however you treat me, I will never forget it.

7. Before you hit me, before you strike me, remember that I could hurt you, and yet, I choose not to bite you.

8. Before you scold me for being lazy or uncooperative, ask yourself if something might be bothering me. Perhaps I’m not getting the right food, I have been in the sun too long, or my heart might be getting old or weak.

9. Please take care of me when I grow old. You too, will grow old.

10. On the ultimate difficult journey, go with me please.  Never say  you can’t bear to watch. Don’t make me face this alone. Everything is easier for me if you are there, because I love you so.  ALWAYS!

Take a moment today to thank God for your pets.  Enjoy and take good care of them. Life would be a much duller, less joyful experience without God’s critters.  Now please pass this on to other pet owners. We do not have to wait for Heaven, to be surrounded by hope, love, and joyfulness. It is here on earth and has four legs!
