Sunday Pause (Paws): Helping A Family & Their Dog

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and consider extending a helping hand for a family & their dog.

I know this is a different kind of Sunday post from what I normally do but helping animals is my mission. When I read the post an old coworker had out there about her dog, Mack, I felt I had to try to help.

Her dog has been taken from her family and is currently at a boarding facility because of some incidences of him getting out of the house or yard and running up to people or other animals and scaring them. Continue reading

My Best Friend

Two posts in one day, not something I do often. But when I realized today was “National Friendship Day” I wanted to share a pic of my best friend.

Those wings can take you oh so high

Oh what joy they must bring

Oh butterfly with wings so great
Can you fly beyond the golden gate?

Stay Strong

My heart literally breaks for animals and how they are treated in our society by so many. And my new favorite word for anyone that I hear or read about that hurts an animal is jack***. You see, I’m not one who curses, but that seems to be a favorite word of mine lately.

Is it because I’m older and less patient? Is it because my sister passed away and I’m more sensitive? Or maybe it’s both. Whatever the reason I wrote the following short poem to express some of the emotions I have been feeling (swear words not included 🙂 ).

Sunday Pause (Paws): A Dream Tale

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, grab a cup of coffee and read a little story…a little dream tale.

ONCE UPON A TIME…

A princess had been working hard at her day job and on her blog at night. She was also battling a bad cold so she was extra tired when she went to bed that night. Thoughts were going this way & that way in her head and soon she was in a dream.

She heard about a horse that had ran off and his family, who lived in Canada, was very worried. There was a sighting of the horse and the word was he was last seen standing in the middle of a parking lot. The parking lot was in a strip mall in the town the princess had grew up in. She knew this area well so she drove down there to try to help.

Meanwhile the family heard where their beloved horse was so the man jumped in his car and took off to go and get him.

Back at the strip mall the horse was now standing in the parking lot frozen like a statue. Continue reading
