Adopt a dog, then cheer on the Preds

The Nashville Predators are hosting a very special event tomorrow afternoon before their game against the Detroit Red Wings. Starting at 4:30 on the plaza outside Bridgestone Arena, several dogs from the Nashville Humane Society and New Leash On Life will be available for adoption. Each person adopting a pet will also receive a prize pack courtesy of PEDIGREE, thanks to Mars Petcare which is sponsoring the event. You'll fill out all the paperwork at the arena, and pick up your new dog the next day.

While we're on the topic of hockey fans and dog lovers, I wanted to point out one of my favorite blogs, Black Dog Hates Skunks. There's just dynamite insight on the Edmonton Oilers, mixed with concern for the author's aging dog. Just reading his post today made me think back to two years ago at this time, when we lost a member of our family.

We adopted good old Ozzy from an animal shelter, just as we did his successors, Scout & Indy. So take a moment and consider whether adopting a dog might make your home a warmer place. Jim Diamond's post features a showcase of some of the dogs which will be available Saturday afternoon.
