“Ol Blue–By Joan Baez

Today, at www.calamitypolitics.com we are celebrating the lives of our departed four-legged friends. In this Traditional American folk song Joan Baez laments the pain over the death of a ‘possum hound.  Dogs are a blessing to our lives. Be kind, give more than you take. You know, like your dog does for you.–Darlene

If you have lost a four-legged friend recently, maybe it is time to bring another hero into your life. Save a life. Adopt a homeless pet.


Dog House By Jackie Nguyen

This post is for all the people who have lost a beloved pet. Jackie Short Nguyen says it so beautifully. I thought her words might be just the right words for someone reading this today. I have had six dogs over the course of my life. No matter how hard I try, I can only come up with a handful of people who have given me more love and happiness than those shaggy friends. If you have lost a pet, remember, that there are millions of dogs (and cats) just waiting for a chance to be special to someone. 1.2 million dogs are euthanized every year. 1.4 million cats are euthanized annually. Don’t wait, save a life adopt a pet–Darlene
