About Shoeful of Drool

Shoeful of Drool was inspired by Dudley, a golden retriever/German shepherd mix, and Zoe, a black & tan hound mix (maybe Doberman). They would stand right beside me as I doled out their food, slobbering the whole while. In the summer when I wore sandals, it invariably ended up in my shoe. Dudley was a rescue from Hurricane Floyd and lived with me from October 1999 until he died in December 2012. Zoe came from the pound (by way of a friend) and lived with us until she died in June 2011.

One year and one day after I lost Dudley, I adopted Louie from Saving Grace Animal Rescue. He is very different from both Dudley and Zoe, for starters he rarely drools. The only time I see slobber from him is when he’s hot in the summertime. He has the same playful personality and sense of gratitude that I think all rescued dogs have. I believe having dogs has made me a better person and they certainly make me laugh every day. I hope that sharing some of their exploits will make you laugh, too.

  2. Congratulations on that award! I just found your blog and am glad I did..! I’ll be back.
    If you like to read dog stories, check out http://maijaharrington.com, where I’m posting chapters from my book-in-progress, Funny Tails: Adventures & Misadventures in Living with Pugs. It’s a lighthearted, humorous look at my life with our 3 pugs as well as various pugs we’ve fostered for Pug Rescue of North Carolina. So far, readers think the book is really funny. (It’s G-rated. And it’s free, not trying to sell you anything.)
