Sunday Pause (Paws): Ending “Happy Cats Month”

It’s Sunday! You know what that means. Time to kick back, relax, and enjoy the simple things in life, like knowing our furry family members are happy (which actually isn’t really a simple thing, it’s a huge thing).

Dog Fighting…How Cruel Humans Can Be

Dog fighting. So incredibly cruel and certainly shows us one of the worst sides of human beings. Here is a definition I found online: Dog fighting is a type of blood sport generally defined as two game dogs against one another in a ring or a pit for the entertainment of the spectators or the gratification of the dogfighters, who are sometimes referred to as dogmen.

Pitbulls (and other dogs) are taken and beaten into becoming angry aggressive dogs. Then they are thrown into a ring with another dog to fight it out. They most certainly are terrified, confused, and in pain. Humans call this entertainment. Animals who are in misery tearing each other apart and this is entertainment. Not only entertainment, but humans make money off of the bets on which dog will “win.” (None of the dogs “win.” This is a lose, lose situation for them) Continue reading

Sunday Pause (Paws): Getting To Know Someone New

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and take some time to get to know someone.

If you go to church on Sunday you probably have a greeting time where you shake your neighbor’s hand and meet someone new. For some this is something they look forward to, they may love meeting new people. But for some this might make you a bit uncomfortable, you’re a bit more shy and unsure of new people.

Today I have a little story about two cats getting to know each other and one was pretty unsure of this new addition to the family.

Dakota has shared his home with my cousin Trish & her family for many years. They just recently decided to adopt a kitty.

Sunday Pause (Paws): A Lucky Cat In A Basket

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and enjoy the little things (like looking at a cute cat in a basket).

We’re Here, We’re Just Thinking

Hello all!

I wanted to let you know that we are still around. 🙂 Things have been a bit busy. This is a busy time of year at my job, there are things I am trying to resolve at the place I live, I am working on a logo for my friends photography business, and I have been photographing, editing, and enlarging some of my own photos to frame.

Besides those things, I have been doing a lot of thinking. My sister’s death has really made me take a look at my life and I am at a bit of a crossroads right now.
