Valletta just turned one yesterday...and in honor of her birthday, we went to our local SPCA chapter and donated all her unused puppy food as well as old towels, blankets and newspapers. We also made a contribution to help the poor animals who lost their homes. Some how that just seemed more appropriate than buying her even more little toys and treats. I found out while we were there that there was a home in Asbury Park where 40 pit bull mixes were rescued late last week. Some of them were puppies just days old.
