Ok… my dog mind thought that each time a hurricane presented itself in the Atlantic…well…a bunch of people just decided on the spot what to name this horrible thing. But no…that’s so incorrect.
The World Meteorological Organization selects the names and the names are in rotation every six years…get it…rotation. Best part of this name game…any hurricane that is really nasty and destructive…that given hurricane name is retired…so goodbye Harvey. Prayers going out to all in the aftermath of Harvey and to those in the path of Hurricane Irma.

I’m watching all of the people and their four-legged animals who have lost their home in Texas…nowhere to go right now as the Harvey rains continue and threat of the dams overflowing looms large. So, while these raging waters are causing catastrophic situations…there came bright lights of giving… golden moments. That’s right, all of the goodness that’s happening between humans is not being overlooked by this dog. So many folks have come to help. Example… Anheuser-Busch stepped up giving cans of water…that’s right not cans of beer but crystal clear drinking water.
Each year, Budweiser halts the beer making process to can water for emergency situations…so the much-needed water was waiting to help…and here comes Harvey and there goes the Bud Trucks to Texans in need. Now that is a golden plan. Drink up and be safe.
This retriever doesn’t drink beer…but if I did, I’d be throwing down a Bud to honor “This Buds for You.”
This hurricane thing called Harvey is a very bad person. It’s beyond me why anyone would place such destruction and sadness…anywhere.
Now, I have never met a hurricane and I sure hope that my family and loved ones…my area…my home…my beloved Virginia…anywhere for that matter…never comes in contact with the likes of a Harvey.
Remember…safety is always at the center of my golden retriever messages. So, humans have a plan when you know you are going to meet such a beast, as Harvey…and be sure that your plans cover your pets…your livestock…they are counting on your good common sense and caring.
Have a plan.

Fly ahead or wait the end
Such a wrath on earth
