Always Remember

In Flanders Fields
By: Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, MD (1872-1918)
Canadian Army

IN FLANDERS FIELDS the poppies blow
Between the crosses row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
As a humans watched "Home of the Brave" (with Samuel L. Jackson) today...and said it was a great movie, and reminds them of the sacrifice soldiers make to keep us safe.


So my human mom went to the Royal Winter Fair yesterday, which showcases the best in agriculture a great horse show...and the Superdogs!

If you haven't heard of them, it is a great show that travels the world! Dogs of all shapes and sizes perform cool tricks, and compete against each other in agility style races. Each side of the theatre cheers for "their" dog to win! The kids in the audience win cute little stuffed dog prizes!

My human mom LOVES this show! She actually dreams of me being in it! BOL! So I guess, with my start in's not impossible!

Here's a link to check out some great video from the Superdog site!

This, I found on YouTube:

Next year I just may be there...but only to watch! Mom found out yesterday that this was a dog friendly event!! She could have brough me! She met lots of really nice dogs checking out the fair with their humans! *sigh* ah year will be hee before you know it!
