Feeling down? Head to the park

Published 12:02am Friday, September 14, 2012

Is something missing in your life?

Do you feel caught in a cycle of disappointments, loneliness and despair? Are you constantly looking for answers?

Well turn off the late-night, self-help infomercial, grab your sneakers, some bug spray and maybe an old tennis ball and head on down to the Grand Village of the Natchez Indians this Saturday.

Your new companion is waiting, and he or she will certainly change your life.

The Natchez-Adams County Humane Society is bringing a number of adoptable dogs to its annual Bark in the Park fundraiser, and just because you come with a dry tennis ball doesn’t mean it will be dry when you leave.

If you’ve never owned a dog, you simply don’t know what you are missing. If you said goodbye to your four-legged friends years ago, isn’t it time to open your home and your heart again? If the house is already slobber-filled, what’s one more!

Dogs are wonderful companions. They can help you defeat loneliness, make you laugh and even lead you to lose weight.

And the pooches at the shelter need you. Their lives have been tough up to this point, and they’ll be more than appreciative of a new home and a new best friend.

Bark in the Park starts at 11 a.m. and ends at 2 p.m. Admission is $4 for adults and $1 for children, and you don’t have to have a dog to attend.

Of course, you should consider leaving with plans to adopt.

    I LOVE DOGS. I GREW UP AROUND THEM. IF I HAD THE TIME AND PLACE I WOULD ADOPT A COUPLE. THE CLOSES I GET TO ONE IS WHEN I VISIT MY MOTHER. SHE TELLS ME THE THINGS HE HELP HER TO DO, INCLUDING HELPING HER TO MAKE THE BED, WHEN TO PLAY BALL AND SHE SAID SOMETIME HE TALKS TO HER. I JUST HAVE TO TAKE HER WORD FOR IT.
