Did You Know?

Animal abuse, a very sad topic, but one that needs to be given attention.

Did you know animal abuse isn’t just someone hitting or hurting their own pet?

Did you know animals are being abused daily and we are allowing it?

On the packaging of items that are organic, such as cheese, it says “Pasture Raised Cows.” There are WAY less organic products available than non-organic products. So what is happening to the other cows?

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

Today we take a look back at Jack. Jack is a little dog that was found in a dumpster by a little boy. Sadly, this happens more than you think. Honestly, how can people be so cruel?

Below is Jack happy to have tummy time. πŸ™‚

It’s Just An Animal

How many of you have come across someone who has said to you, “it’s just an animal!”? Well, I don’t know about you, but I can’t even express how frustrating this is to me.

A young blogger contacted me about a debate she is having with someone over the use of animals in entertainment. It sounds like their discussion has gotten heated and the last thing I know is that he said the following comment about elephants, β€œTheir tusks are useful and men want to use them. They are just animals.” This was very upsetting for the blogger. Continue reading

This Tuesday’s Tale: Teachers

This Tuesday Tale is a little different. I would like to start off with a tale about Judith. Please watch the video below.

This month teachers are celebrated and shown appreciation for what they do for children. Some of you know that I work around children and today Chipotle Restaurant was offering “Buy One, Get One.” A deal only for teachers. I came home with a veggie burrito and a veggie salad. Mmm, mmm, good! Dinner taken care of. πŸ™‚

Doesn’t Tee look so relaxed and comfortable? What could be better than lying in the garden getting some sun? πŸ™‚

Sadly less than a month ago Tee was not so relaxed, but found himself in a terrible predicament. He was found screaming face down in a barn in a pile of junk with his paw stuck in a trap. Below is the actual trap he was found in. Continue reading
