Sunday Pause (Paws): Don’t Give Up

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back & relax.

There is so much going on around us in this world, just don’t give up. Don’t give up on being kind, on making a change (peacefully), on our fellow man, on animals, or on praying.

Happy Sunday!

Sunday Pause (Paws): Animals Need To Relax Too

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back & relax and relaxing isn’t just for us.

There are so many animals that never get to really relax. Cows kept in confinement and hooked up to machines so humans can take their milk. Calves kept in the smallest possible area so they don’t build muscle so humans can have veal. Elephants chained up so they can “perform” for humans. Pit bulls living every minutes in fear of abuse so humans can use them to make money in dog fights. The list goes on but since I try to keep my Sunday posts “light” I will stop there. You get the idea!

But the theme of WHO is causing all of this harm is humans. I can’t help but imagine what God would say if we sat down and asked him what he thought about how humans treat his animals.

Cino is able to curl up and relax this Sunday and I hope the animals in your care are able to as well.

Sunday Pause (Paws): So Much More

Over this past week my friend’s dog, Dakota, celebrated his 15th birthday while someone at work had to say goodbye to their dog, Niko. This got me thinking about how important it is that we see how all life matters. Dakota is not just a dog, but a part of my friend’s family and worthy to be celebrated! Niko was not just a dog, but a part of my co-worker’s family and worthy of a time of mourning and remembrance.

I wrote the following poem thinking about these two precious lives. Photos are included of each of them. (Dakota’s mom is a professional photographer).

A pet is not just a pet
But one of the best friends you’ll ever get
Your comforter, therapist, friend, & baby
A pet is so many things including family

They are worthy to be celebrated in a big way
To throw a huge party for on their birthday
Decorations, friends, photos, and cake
These are special memories that we make

Dakota celebrating his 15th birthday!

Sunday Pause (Paws): March 2021

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back and relax.

We all agree that 2020 and even 2021 have been incredibly challenging years. This month has turned out to be a bugger for me as well. March 1st I fell and injured my ankle pretty badly. I have never had anything quite like this happen and it has been very challenging. I tried for the first few weeks to go on with life as normal but it wasn’t working. I was struggling in many ways and the demands of life can make you feel pressured. Now I am concentrating on getting better and making that the priority.

My birthday was last Sunday and there wasn’t much celebrating because of my injury and not being able to get together due to the pandemic. But I received gifts and cards in the mail along with a number of phone calls and messages. My mom also dropped off some goodies and gifts for me.❤️ One of the gifts was a wreath I have been wanting for months that I found on Etsy. Here is a picture of the wreath as I opened it up. It’s still in the box and after checking it over thoroughly, it is also Cino approved.

Sunday Pause (Paws): Word Search Fun On Love

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back and take a pause.

Puzzles are a great way to relax and my favorite kind are Word Search Puzzles. I created another one to share with you.

The message in the puzzle is centered around love. Love for all but focused on animals because Animals Are Feeling Beings Too.

I‘ve been feeling the love today for my birthday with many messages, texts, and phone calls from family & friends. It’s a rough year due to the pandemic and my injured ankle but I am feeling the love. 🙂

Well I hope you enjoy my Word Search Puzzle. Unfortunately, it is not an interactive online one. You can print it out or just do it on the screen. The puzzle can be clicked on so that you can enlarge it if needed. The answers/completed puzzle can be found in the link below the puzzle.

Let me know how it goes. Feedback is appreciated! Continue reading

Sunday Pause (Paws): Scrambled Thoughts

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back & relax.

I haven’t been relaxing yet but it’ll come later. I’m working on laundry and other household tasks first. So speaking about laundry, at our new place we have a nice front load washer. I have heard they can leave an unpleasant smell behind in the washer, which I have found to be very true, and it seems my laundry never smells good. Today for the first time I am trying “UNStopables” scent beads. The laundry isn’t done yet but I can smell it while it’s going and it smells good, so hopefully so will my laundry.

Anyway, that isn’t what I was going to write about, although I am writing on scrambled thoughts. 🙂

It isn’t always easy for me to write a post unless I have a specific conversation or situation through the week that gives me an idea for one. There hasn’t been any of that lately, but I have been having a lot of thoughts about animals. They’re so scrambled it’s been hard to pull them together to write a post. I finally decided just to go ahead and let them out even if they come out scrambled. Mostly I have been thinking about how I feel like I or other animal loving people have to use so much time & energy in convincing other people about animal’s rights. You see to me it seems like it should be obvious. God created them and God gave us the job to care for them. Period.

If you believe in God, you probably believe that when this world ends there will be no more Continue reading

Sunday Pause (Paws): Our Pets, Our Family

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and cuddle with our furry family members.

Many of you who are reading this most likely have a pet and pets are a part of our family. So when they have a health issue, we don’t take it lightly.

Below is Honey who is a furry family member of Deb M. Not too long ago Honey had a health issue that Deb was having a hard time getting diagnosed properly. The staff at the clinic she had been taking Honey to in her words “were awful” to Deb during this. As I mentioned, pets are family so to treat us, the pet parents, awful is simply not acceptable! Deb took Honey to a new clinic who was able to diagnose her immediately, were kind, and now Honey is doing much better!
