Dear DeDe

Beauty From the Inside Out!

Oh Dog! DeDe here with this week’s tip for looking and feeling your best!

Time for more beauty tips from DeDe!

Time for more beauty tips from DeDe!

This week’s tip: Cultivate relationships with supportive friends and family.

Rumpy and I support and care about each other.

I find it sad that in a world of over 6 billion people, it can sometimes be difficult to find supportive relationships. But they are out there! When you find them, keep them.

Some of you are fortunate to have supportive family. Some of you aren’t. But you can create your own family with people who care about you.

Bubba Cat and I are best friends!

Bad things happen. We all know that. But sharing the burden with others makes the bad easier to bear.

And the good stuff? Amazingly, it feels better to share in the joy of others than to experience one’s own joy alone.

June Buggie and Rumpy fuss, but they they truly care about each other.

So this week let’s make it a point to find a friend, and be a friend!

And remember to never leave home without this essential beauty product- a smile!

  6. Friends are always the best. Or as Freddy said: Friends will be friends
    When you’re in need of love they give you care and attention
    Friends will be friends
    When you’re through with life and all hope is lost ..
