The Tale of Ray and a Battle With Heart-Worm

2013 04 11b

Today’s tale is from a fellow blogger, Colin, at A Dog’s Life? (Stories of Me and Him). Colin is the author of “Who Said I Was Up For Adoption?” The following tale is actually an excerpt from his book.

In the latter part of May, and in preparation for taking heart-worm prevention medication, we took Ray back to the vet so that his blood could be tested prior to taking the medications. A few days later we had a message on our answering machine asking that we call the vet to discuss the test results. He had tested positive for heart-worm, and needed further tests to estimate how advanced he was. We were both in shock as the ramifications of this situation started to sink in.

Our beloved Ray, who would appear to have had such a shaky beginning to his life and who was now having a fresh start, was soon going to be in a fight for his life. Our beloved Ray who seemed so happy being a part of our family now had a very questionable future. Our beloved Ray had found his proverbial “forever home” but did he have much of a “forever” to enjoy it? Continue reading

That’s my dad above. I’m sure he would hate me sharing this photo with his hair sticking up. Shhh!!! I think it is funny.

Check out the videos below “Dog Dad’s Day” and “Dog Dad Love Song” for a laugh. Happy Sunday!

Meow. Woof.

Dominion Over Animals…How Do We Interpret This?

I finally took some time this morning to read over the online debate another blogger participated in and shared with me. They were discussing all animals and what the bible says about them. The discussion started on the topic of elephants in circuses.

There is a lot of confusion out there about the bible and what God says about animals.

Genesis 1:26-Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”

For one thing, it says “in our own likeness.” Does anyone believe God would abuse animals?

Some synonyms for the word “dominion” are: power, rule, superior. Who says “power”, “ruling”, or “superiority” is a bad thing, a ticket to harm? Why is that assumed? As loving and beautiful as God is, why wouldn’t it be assumed that it meant to care, provide, guide, teach, and protect? Continue reading

Time Is Precious

There has been a lot of illnesses and death around my circle lately. Families of co-workers, fellow bloggers, and even in my own family there have been some hard times.

It really makes you stop and think how precious time is.

Time has a way of getting away from all of us. There is never enough time. But as you get older, I think you get wiser and you realize what you should be spending your time on. Things that make you happy and things that matter...family, friends, making a difference, and time with our beloved pets.

Time is precious!

This Tuesday’s Tale: Coolidge & Effie

The Tale of Coolidge & Effie

Coolidge was one of the rescued kittens from a litter that was found in a field. He was a shy and timid cat, uncertain of his new surroundings, when Lauren and her husband first brought him home. (Lauren’s description sounds similar to what I experienced with Cino when I brought her home). But the patience and love they seem to have had for Coolidge eventually created a beautiful bond.   Continue reading

Sunday Pause (Paws): Cino in Black & White

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and take a break from the busyness!

I have been having fun playing with photographs lately. I decided to turn some of the photos of Cino into black & white photos. So this Sunday, I would like to share them with you. I hope you enjoy them. My favorite is the one of my hand and Cino’s paw.
