The Road to Happiness

I love holiday traditions.  They put the personal stamp on the season and are like comfy little quilts offering comfort and joy.  
All traditions start somewhere.   Last year the Westwood Hills Veterinary Hospital came up with a very special way to help ARC fundraise for surgery for Zowie, one of the young dogs in their care.   ( The subject of how ARC actually IS No Kill because they never define healthy and treatable with a dollar sign is a separate topic that I have .... and will again sometime ... discussed in a post of its own :)
Volunteers donated the ornaments on the tree and all the proceeds of the sale were donated to ARC.  
So I was very happy to hear that this is now becoming a tradition and that once again kind hearts will be able to buy beautiful ornaments AND help the animals.    Click Here for directions to the clinic.
What time is it?  Its always time to remember that the real spirit of the season is kindness.
"If you want others to be happy, practice compassion.  If you want to be happy, practice compassion"  The Dalai Lama
