The World Traveller

As many of you know, and for those who do not know, my two greatest loves in life (besides pitties) are to cook and to travel. I want to first apologize for not writing more, as I am undergoing great tests and great adventures in the culinary world right now and it is taking up more time than I actually have. Builds character, right?? I have travelled extensively, although have not travelled enough... Ask me about shopping at the Christmas Markets in Europe, drinking amazing wines at the fantastic vineyards in Oregon, snorkeling off the beaches of Koh Phi Phi, and I can tell you all about them. Ask me about the lure of selling everything, packing up my few precious items, and taking off for a new horizon, a new beginning, a new adventure, and I will tell you about my dreams and goals in life. Ask me about my dog, and I will tell you that she comes before these great adventures of mine still to come.
As amazing and fantastic as packing up everything and moving away, or saving for a year, then just taking off, no plans, no itinerary, just adventure and fun times ahead, we all must remember that we have made promises to loved ones that we just cannot break.
I received an email today from a desperate woman. A woman who went out of her way to save a dog that she fell in love with but could not take as her own. The dog will be put to sleep this week, and this will break her heart. Her owner decided to pack up and move to Thailand.
I have been to Thailand. The Land of Smiles. It is a magnificent place full of beauty and mystery. It is like no other place on this earth. I love Thailand. I could have returned there to stay forever, but I did not. I made a promise to the one gal in this world that loves me unconditionally, my sweet pitbull. She has been on this earth for nine years, has lived with three owners, and with me for six years. She has been with me through my ups and downs, moved with me across the country. I love her as much as she loves me. I made a promise to her when I decided to keep her. I did not say it out loud, but when I decided to keep her, it was for good, until she passes away. I intend on keeping this promise. I am a proud dog owner, a responsible dog owner, in saying that, I mean until she is no longer on this earth. I vowed to take the best care of her that I humanly can. And I will.
This man did not keep his promise, and now his sweet dog will take the ultimate sacrifice for him. Her life. This dog will have to give up his life, so his "owner" can have a "better" life. This is not right.
Here is the info on this sweet little girl who desperately needs a FOREVER home.

 Please help! I am a HUGE Pit Bull fan. I live in Oregon and I am trying to find a home for a white fixed female pit that is going to be euthanized Friday, July 15 if I am unable to find her a home. She is 8 years old, loves people and kids, great with other animals, knows basic commands, is not a huge barker, and would love a new home. Her current ass of an owner is euthanizing her because he is not home that often and is moving to Thailand. Please help! I have two Pit Bulls myself and they are part of my family, I call them my kids. Please help me find a home for a loving pit that only wants to be loved and will love you unconditionally. Please contact 503-810-0698 for further information and to meet her. Thank you.
