Six years ago Jack was found by a little boy. The little boy heard barking come from a dumpster in the parking lot of his apartment building. He took this little dog out of the dumpster and brought him to school where a teacher helped find him a new home. That new home was with someone I know. Continue reading →
Many of us can relate to feeling like our house is not a home without a pet. Well this is most certainly true for Tammy.
Tammy is a friend of mine and one of the reasons we get along is our shared love for animals! We have had a number of conversations where we expressed our mutual anger for those who harm animals. I have known her for about seven years or so and just in the time I have known her, there have been many pets she has given a home.
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. 🙂
The tale of Happy, Chou, and Haïden told by Audrey
In my early blogging days when I was still an apprentice. In the days when I would spend hours staring at the computer screen or googling things, researching and using YouTube. I still do that but I’m more of an expert now. Anyways, in those days I was trying out the creation of a photo gallery and customizing it to my menu. I decided to make a photo shoot session with the friendliest being I know…please meet Happy.
This Tuesday’s Tale is not about a dog or cat like they usually are. This is a tale about a bat.
A bat was spotted where I work by some children. Now, keep in mind it is winter and, although we have had unusually warm weather, they are supposed to be in hibernation. This bat was hanging around a bench outside.
This is the tale of Blue. She lived on the beach following people around begging for affection until one day somebody finally rescued her.
I am a big fan of stories about rescued animals and I have been finding out there a lot of them. This makes me really, really happy! The part that makes me sad is that it seems there were so many other people who just “left her.” We would never do that if we saw a child on the beach alone. Why is it “ok” to leave a dog, that apparently has no “pet parent”, by itself on the beach? Continue reading →
I saw the story of Pearl on another blog and I thought it was so incredible, I just had to share it. It seemed easiest to reblog it.
Thank you so much Lesley for letting me share this story. Pearl is absolutely beautiful and it crushes me to think about what she went through before she made her way to you. Looking at these beautiful photographs of her, I can see she is now in good hands.
This is exactly why we have to start young in teaching children empathy towards animals and why we all need to be the voice for animals.
I hope everyone enjoys visiting Lesley’s blog and reading the story of Pearl. 🙂
I am amazed at all of the stories I have been able to use so far for my “Tuesday Tales.” Most of them are “rescue” stories. This warms my heart so much to know that even though there is way too much abuse out there, there are great people, like you, saving them and taking them away from the abuse.
You can find more tales on the “Tuesday Tales” page of my blog. If you would like to participate by sharing a story about your pet, you will find the details there also.
