A Spotlight On Pets

Hello! I have two adorable photos for two things going on this week.

First, it’s National Dog Week. A big THANK YOU to all of the furry babies who are so loyal and who are always there for us.

The cutie pie below is Bogey (photo taken by Tammy Taylor and edited by me).

This Tuesday’s Tale: Lucky Waffle, Lucky Lisa

The tale of Waffle (& Lisa)

The Huffington Post

I found this story and it brought tears to my eyes. Here is a paragraph from it.

“The shelter said police had rescued this rat terrier from an abusive situation in Virginia. Most of his teeth were missing; he had a benign tumor, cataracts, and what was described as “an incompetent heart.” There were also scars on his cheek and jaw, and he couldn’t stop shaking. As my daughter put it, “That dog is a scaredy-cat.” We kept walking. I kept circling back. I mean, Harrison Ford has a scar on his face, and who doesn’t love Harrison Ford?”

Ignoring A Need Right In Front Of Us

What is going through your mind as you look at the picture above?

When I first saw this picture, I was heart broken. The old cliche “a picture says a thousand words” hit me right in the nose. Here is a man “buying” a new puppy for his child while a homeless, starving dog is laying right there on the street. It even looks like it is raining outside too.

There are a few thoughts that I feel can be taken from this picture.

Cletus was a senior dog that was abandoned in a park. My first reaction was to be pretty upset with the person who did this, but then I read the full story.

This Tuesday’s Tale

This is the tale of Charlee.

Charlee is 8 months old. She had a family and a home. Sadly, one day when Charlee was in the backyard of her home, she somehow got out and into the street, and a car hit her.

We don’t know the entire back-story. How she got out of the backyard or how much the surgery would cost. What we do know is her family could not afford the surgery Charlee required, so they brought her to a shelter.

At the shelter, she received the necessary surgery; however, they could not save her back right leg.

Should A Pit Bull Have Any Less Rights Than Any Other Animal?

I just recently saw in the Facebook Newsfeed a post about pit bulls being outlawed in Montreal. Not only outlawed, but euthanized, simply because they are pit bulls. Here is the video I saw.

This is not OK. Animals are what we make them into.

There is a petition you can sign to help! Here is the link to it:
Help Save an Animal’s Life

I signed it and here is what I wrote:

I respectfully ask that you consider that pit bulls are what people make them into. They are living creatures created by God. They do not ask to be beaten, used for bait, or thrown into a dog fight. If you were, wouldn’t you be a bit aggressive too? Go after the humans doing this to these animals and please HELP these animals at our mercy.

I feel it is important to be kind & respectful when fighting for animals! Yelling, swearing, or being violent does not get people to listen, therefore you are not helping at all. So, if you do sign the petition (and I hope you do), please be respectful.
