I am a Taurus...hear me BARK....Lol cuz I am a dog!!

            Sign of The Bull
......      Ruling Planet - Venus
......      Most Desirable Qualities - Kind-hearted, Stubborn, Steadfast
......      Talent - Singing
......      Physical Characteristics - Powerful build and naturally large
.......     Lucky Day - Friday
.......     Most Harmonious Signs - Capricorn, Virgo, Cancer          .      .           .
.         .         .
.           .           .
The Sign of the Bull is characterized by inner strength and determination (some call this stubbornness). Your tenaciousness will eventually get you what you desire whether it be playing hide and seek or fetching the ball and those around you learn early that you are not one to be ignored.            .
.           .           .
.           Always in a hurry, you do everything at top speed and will zing through the yard and into the house and out and back again before anyone can follow. You are happiest in the country and city life is hard for you since you suffer from claustrophobia. .
.           .           .
.           Your ruling planet, Venus, the goddess of love, endows you with loyalty and affection, but you will not fall in love easily. When in love you are devoted.   .
.           .           .
.           Your greatest fault (I know you didn't think you had any) is your inability to get along peacefully with other dogs. Your nervous energy sets the tone and the turf war begins. Distance should be your mantra.      .
.           .           .
.           But your greatest love is your love of singing (well not everyone calls it that!) Your early attempts will surprise some, but once encouraged your talent grows. And you don't wait for a full moon either. Radio, TV, someone humming, a group of revelers or carolers and you instantly become engaged. Your family would do well to be musically inclined since your inner contentment comes from the songs in your heart.            .
.           .           .
.           What a year you have coming! As long as you do not try to hasten the normal tempo of events there are many promising possibilities for making personal gains, extra treats and rewards and an abundance of affection. Don't ponder life too much instead devote yourself to those moments that make each day worthwhile (a nap, the warmth of the sun, a cozy fire).             .
.           .           .
.           Your lucky number is 9 and this year will be fine for health, friends and happiness, but please give special attention to your ears.         .
.           .           .
.           QUOTE OF THE MONTH BY ROBERT BENCHLEY:           .

.           "A dog teaches a boy fidelity, perseverance, and to turn around three times before lying down."     .

Rescued and now being considered USA Today's Most Heroic Dog of 2010! Vote Here!

Sparkles the Fire Safety Dog, rescued from a home with 62 other dogs and who helped save the lives of 7 children and 2 adults from fire with her fire safety efforts, has been nominated for USA Today's Most Heroic Dog of 2010.

Sparkles is honored to share this nomination with four other amazing dogs, including Target, who was an amazing heroic dog.

Five year old Angelica shared this story with me, "Firefighter Dayna~ I was in bed under the 'cobers' and the smoke came. I crawled out of bed and crawled low, just like Sparkles [the Fire Safety Dog] showed me to. I said, 'C'mon daddy, you have to get on the floor and crawl low like Sparkles.'"

By this time, her dad was disoriented because he had been standing in the smoke filled room. Thankfully, he was able to follow Angelica out of the house. The firefighters later shared with me that Angelica's father followed her out of the home and they said that as soon as he reached the door, the firefighters scooped him up and took him to the hospital (where he spent 7 days~ 4 in ICU). Immediately after they carried him away from the front door, the firefighters stated that the home flashed over (a "flashover" is where the home totally becomes engulfed in flames).

Although Sparkles recently passed away, her passion for helping keep children fire safe will live on. Thank you to USA Today for nominating Sparkles and for helping raise awareness of the importance of fire safety.

Please vote for Sparkles and help share the word via email and on Facebook. Not only will you be helping keep Sparkles' memory alive, you will be helping her continue to share the fire safety message. Please click or go to

Thank you and have a fire safe day.

Thank you everyone cuz Sparkles was our pal and she certainly deserves this award and recolonization.
