I am so excited to share this post about a recent follower, Alice. Alice shared the following photo of her and Coconut with me.
I asked her for more information regarding the comment she left with this picture and this is what she said:
My precious, rescued sheep are my angels and best friends.This one pictured here we named Coconut, who was a terrified and abused girl, that was so incredibly loving and tame and trusting of us, we sadly weren’t allowed to take her on though, unlike our other sheep, as the ‘farmer’ insisted on ‘keeping her’. Our precious sheep have changed both mine and my mother’s lives, they came at a very difficult time, starting with our first little orphan lamb, called Poppy. (She is my profile picture, as a painting I did of her, she sadly only lived for 11 months as was poorly, but she was a true angel!) I could go on and on about them!
Here is the the amazing painting of Poppy she mentioned. Wow, such great work! Continue reading →
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 →
