FIDO…. …a Latin name meaning “I am faithful.”

This afternoon I attended the closing ceremony of Best Friends No More Homeless Pets Conference in Las Vegas.  Our keynote speaker, Julie Castle, humbly shared from her heart the entire purpose of this conference lies with all of us in Rescue.  That we must find a way to bridge our differences and remember that all of us, do what we do for our animals.  If we all look for the solution instead of the problem we will become a no kill Nation in this decade.  And I believe her.  I am far from perfect, and still my Zsa Zsa, looks at me with her big round brown eyes with so much trust and faith, she is forever faithful to me.  I have other dogs and they too have complete faith in me, a human, that does not possess this angelic loyalty with abandon.  Nonetheless they love me with all my faults and conditions.  Julie Castle ended her talk with “fido” giving the latin definition, I am faithful.  Yes, you are my unconditional canine friends, yes you are.  Thank you Best Friends for making it possible for us to attend this amazing conference.  ~Sounds of Silent Spirits
