A New Life For Jack

jack3-2017-edited-with-words-aafbt

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

Pay It Forward

Today is “Pay It Forward” day.

A quote I saw on Facebook: “If you want more kindness in the world, put it out there.” So true!

Personally, I  spent years just being mad and complaining about the things I really hated about this world. Thank God I realized THAT doesn’t do any good. Change happens when we take action.

Of course my passion is helping animals. I feel like they are the forgotten. Thought of as not important by many. It’s taken me a long time to figure out HOW to help animals, but then came my blog (you can read more about this on my About page). Even still I find myself Continue reading

Sunday Pause (Paws): Rest Your Mind

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and take a deep breath in & out and turn off the mind.

Image may contain: text

A picture says a thousand words and isn’t this one absolutely true?! The dog pictured above is seeing what’s right in front of him and nothing else. The human, well, I can’t even name all of the things he is seeing (thinking about).

I am guilty of a racing mind. I have a really hard time relaxing. Sure, I can sit on the couch and watch a tv show, look through Facebook, visit with a friend, or write a poem. But to clear everything out of my head and just be…now that’s a challenge.

It takes work to stop everything going on in your mind and just look at what is in front of you. It is not easy! I challenge you to try it right now. Continue reading

For Sale

I have a hard time when I see things like horse auctions, animals for sale at a flea market, and puppy mills where the focus is on making money. It may be the way the world is, but that doesn’t mean it’s right. There is a lot wrong with this world, I’m sure you agree with that.

We sell animals, living beings. I sit back and I think what would the creator of all the animals think of this? If I asked him “is this what you intended?” I think he would say “no.” If I asked him “does dominion over animals mean we can do whatever we please with them?”, I think he would say “no.” If I asked him “do you see animals as property?”, I think he would say “no.” Continue reading

The Paw Pact

What is the Paw Pact? It is this…

(image found on Facebook)

When I saw this Paw Pact image on Facebook I knew I would be making a post out of it. It is exactly how I feel. I do not feel animals are disposable and once you bring them in your home they become family and you don’t just get rid of family.

Animals are little angels. Just the other day a friend of mine put this on her Facebook Page: “Just because my children Continue reading

Sunday Pause (Paws): Or Maybe Another Day

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

Sundays are a great day to set aside for things like friends, family, doing things you enjoy, & rest. But sometimes it’s not just Sundays.

I got pretty sick this week and missed two days of work. I was pushing through the beginning of the week and I got to a point where I just knew, no more. I have to stay home and rest.
