My day will start with taking my dog Libby, a rescue dog from a shelter for a run and a game of fetch. Together we will then take the old bedding and blankets we have collected to the animal shelter to help them stay warm this winter. Libby loves to visit the shelter and play with the other dogs and is always willing to share her treats with them. Then it's on to. Heist as shopping but this year I will be taking PETA literature with me to leave in the sickening fur vault and nordstroms and then take some to leave in some shoe boxes at DSW. Then I'll end the day snuggled with Libby checking out the PETA website for new links to tweet and post on Facebook. I know it's not a lot but I hope that every little thing I do tomorrow will raise awareness and get at least one more person standing up for animal rights.
