I don’t own a dog currently but I am a dog lover. Some people are not dog lovers and instead hate or are maybe afraid of the unleashed beasts. Unfortunately, my commercial office lease states we are not allowed to have dogs in the building because of that and other reasons. Sometimes though, we still get visits from man’s best friend and it really adds to the work environment at our agency if they manage to sneak in the back door unseen and unheard.

When it comes to giving back to your community sometimes it’s not about time or money. It’s easy to think that the only way to give is in the form of time or money but I’ve found another way where when I give it goes farther: my blood. I’m one of the few with the blood type O negative. That means I’m a universal donor which is critical to those with more rare blood types who need transfusions. Luckily I’m not afraid of needles because I make a habit out of donating every time I become eligible again. Lucky the time between donations is long enough that my arms don’t have track marks all over them ;)
