Sunday Pause (Paws): Our Pets, Our Family

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and cuddle with our furry family members.

Many of you who are reading this most likely have a pet and pets are a part of our family. So when they have a health issue, we don’t take it lightly.

Below is Honey who is a furry family member of Deb M. Not too long ago Honey had a health issue that Deb was having a hard time getting diagnosed properly. The staff at the clinic she had been taking Honey to in her words “were awful” to Deb during this. As I mentioned, pets are family so to treat us, the pet parents, awful is simply not acceptable! Deb took Honey to a new clinic who was able to diagnose her immediately, were kind, and now Honey is doing much better!

Sunday Pause (Paws): AWWW

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, open your mouth and let out an “AWWW.”

I‘m going to keep this post short mostly because the picture says it all. But also because I am writing this late at night and I have been busy with other things (nothing like waiting until the last minute to get your taxes done). It was a busy week at work, we had a crazy spring winter storm, and, as you know, my mom has been sick. Calgon take me away!

But then you see a picture like this and you can’t help but forget about all of that stuff for a minute and say “AWWW.”

Sunday Pause (Paws): Romp & Play In The Snow

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and have some fun.

Brrr…baby it’s cold outside. But that doesn’t stop a lot of people (and animals) from still getting out there and having some fun.

Do you all really know
How fun it is to play in the snow?
Sure it is pretty cold
But the joy it brings never gets old

My friend’s dog, Bogey.

So I think I’ll spend my day
Outside where I can romp & play
A Happy Sunday I wish to you
I hope you go out and have some fun too

Happy Sunday!

Things Are A-Changin

Things are a-changin!

We’re in that in between time where summer is ending and fall is approaching. I’m noticing a small amount of leaves turning. But with the rain we are getting today those leaves are already falling off the trees and onto the ground.

I don’t mind this weather at all! I will be spending the night under a blanket on the couch with some tea and an apple candle burning. Ahhh…the small things can be so comforting.

What’s the weather like where you are?

Sunday Pause (Paws): For Paws, Hooves, & Feet

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and come along with me to take a little closer look at a few of the animals I have featured in my banner.

Dana loves animals. Her family adopted Sarge when he was just a puppy and was a beloved family member for years. Here is Dana with him when she was 10 years old. Awww.

A Dog Forced In An Overhead Bin

Being an animal advocate I can’t pass by the hot topic right now concerning a precious dog who lost his life on an airplane.  This little 10 month old puppy’s life was lost tragically. A flight attendant forced passengers to put their dog in the over head bin. If you haven’t heard about this, the video below will explain.

Sunday Pause (Paws): For Some Football

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and watch some football.

If you live in the states today is a big day! It’s Super Bowl Day! I know many people will either be attending a party or sitting in front of their own tv to watch it.

So I figured I would keep this post short & sweet and simply say…

Helping A Lost Pet

While driving , if you saw a dog or a cat wandering around alone, would you stop to help it? It is surprising how many people don’t.

A couple of my co-workers saw a puppy last night running in a very busy road. They said everyone was just driving by and no-one was even slowing down for the pup. Thank God for my co-worker’s compassion! They did stop and scooped him up and out of danger.

I‘ll never understand how anyone can see another living creature in danger, whether it be from traffic, starvation, other animals, weather, and even danger of other people, and not help it. It is one thing when it is wildlife running around (but still if they seem to be in danger, you should try to help), it is another thing if it is an animal such as a dog or cat. Obviously, these are domesticated animals and most likely someone’s lost pet.
