This Tuesday’s Tale: A Look Back

man-in-lake-with-dogHUFFPOST

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.

There are a few points we can take away from this story. Continue reading

What Wouldn’t Jesus Do?

My blog isn’t just about animals, its about how people perceive animals. Humans are to be stewards of the animals on earth and instead are powering over them. Jesus didn’t even do that to us. Although he does have all of the power, he powered under people, serving them. He is loving and peaceful.

What about your boss? They have the power at a job, but does that mean they can or should abuse you? Are they not there to teach, help, encourage, and to keep order?

In Their Hooves

The rodeo…when I was a teenager I thought the idea of animals and cowboys seemed so exciting. I thought I might grow up to marry a cowboy one day. The movie Urban Cowboy was one of my favorite movies. Who could resist the cool Bud played by John Travolta?!

Sunday Pause (Paws): The Human & Animal Bond

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

This Sunday I wanted to take a look at the human and animal bond. God created us both and it is my prayer that we live together with love and respect for one another.

I hope you enjoy looking through the images below showing exactly that!

Animals Saving People

22WORDS

The New Year is almost here and I thought it appropriate to review some great animal stories. They are not necessarily just from 2016.

What I love about these stories is that not only are they about animals saving human lives, but that there is such a variety of animals. There are cats, dogs, a horse, pig, goat, whale, bird, and elephant. I was tearing up reading these stories because, to me, this shows that ALL animals are sweet, precious, loving, feeling beings.

I also was tearing up because I was thinking about how there are actually people out there who hurt these precious beings. I recently saw a post on Facebook about how some teenage boys “rented” a goat from a lady and how they abused him, smashing beer cans on his head. Continue reading

Hoping to Make an Impact

I have been blogging (well…serious blogging) for a few months now. I have played around with my blog, changing & adding things like the “Tuesday Tales” where I share animal stories and “Sunday Pause (Paws)” where I encourage everyone to kick back & relax. On my “Vegetarian Challenge” page I try to add recipes every now & then. There hasn’t been an actual challenge yet, but maybe in the future. Also, I have been adding my favorite cruelty free products to the “Links” page, adding some pictures of my cat, Cino and “Pet Care Tips.”

I will continue to add to these pages and keep a variety on my blog. But one thing that will not change is where my heart is, and that is helping the fight against animal cruelty.

This means some of my posts will not be so uplifting or fun. If I were to only do “happy” posts I wouldn’t be spreading the word about animal cruelty and therefore I wouldn’t be helping animals.

Beautiful Fall Drive

Took a beautiful fall drive today. It started off sunny and beautiful! We drove on a lot of country roads. At one point, we drove by two horses out in a large fenced area who were on opposite sides of the fence. Then one started running toward the other one and stopped right in front of it. They were nose to nose. It was as if they were saying “hello friend.” It happened really fast, and we were driving on the highway, so I didn’t catch a picture of it. But the picture below pretty much catches the moment we saw. It was beautiful!

We were starting to think we were too late for seeing fall colors. Then we caught a few beautiful hillsides and a tree with a steeple in the background.

The weather turned cloudy, cold, and windy! But it was worth it. Fall is a short season, got to get out and enjoy it!

Hope you have the beauty of the fall season to enjoy wherever you are!
