This is a story from 2014, but I have only seen it recently. It’s about a man named Pete and a dog named Buster. Sadly, when Buster was nine years old, Pete ran into financial trouble and lost his house. He knew it wasn’t good for Buster to live out on the streets, so he did what he felt was best for him.
Today I am looking back at an older Tuesday Tale of mine with some new thoughts and questions. If you have been following me for a while you may have read this post called “A Tender Moment Between A Man And His Dog.” It is about a beautiful relationship between a man (John) and his dog (Schoep). As Schoep got older and his arthritis kept him from sleeping, John would bring him to Lake Superior and hold him until he fell asleep in his arms in the water. That is John & Schoep pictured above. The picture alone speaks volumes!
This is such a beautiful story it is worth repeating. Check out the story on the Huffington Post here.
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 is a bit of a different Tuesday Tale. It’s about a human being, but it’s also about a dog she loved.
Our family received some devastating news this past weekend. My sister passed away at only 53 years old. Her name was Lisa.
We are still on an emotional roller coaster and still have the funeral to come. I considered skipping this Tuesday’s Tale post, but writing is a healing thing for me, an outlet.
My sister was very sick, although her death was still unexpected. She had a hard time taking care of herself, let alone a dog. But when her friend would visit she would bring this little dog with. The dog would stay with my sister often while the family had various things going on and it seems Lisa had fallen in love with this little dog named Eli.
Hello all! I was nominated for the One Lovely Blog Award by Crystal from Welcome To Crystal’s Site (Originally Country Living). This is the first nomination for a blogger’s award for me, so I am not exactly sure what this is all about. It seems that it is bloggers recognizing each other and letting them know that you enjoy and appreciate their blog. So if I have it right, then thank you Crystal. I appreciate it.
Many of you know that I started this blog as a project for school while earning my Web Design Certificate. After I finished school I didn’t continue with blogging very regularly, I think mainly because I was so sick of being on a computer (I was on it at work and then at night for school for a few years), but then one day I realized that maybe I was onto something.
I have always considered myself to be, I guess you could say, lost in this world. Never quite figuring out what I wanted to do, but I always dreamt it would be something with animals. For me it wasn’t to be a veterinarian, a zookeeper or anything like that. I knew it was some kind of advocacy; fighting and standing up for animals. I just couldn’t figure it out. That’s when I realized my blog could be something. While it isn’t a “job”, it is a way for me to do what I love; to help animals, spread the word, and connect with other animal lovers.

This Tuesday’s Tale is about a book called “Will’s Red Coat.” It is a true story about a senior dog that was given up and needed a home desperately. Tom Ryan, the author of “Will’s Red Coat” kept watch on social media what was happening with Will until one day he decided he was going to give him the home he needed.
He knew he was going to get a senior dog, but he never expected what he saw when he arrived to meet Will. He was thin, frail, almost blind, deaf, and scared of everything. Out of that fear he continually tried to bite Tom.
Tom drove quite a ways to get Will and on the ride back as he looked at Will, he questioned whether he was doing the right thing, mainly out of concern for Will. He wondered if it would be better if he was put out of his misery. Continue reading →
