Sunday Pause (Paws): For the Word “Just”

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and today I would like to take a pause and look at the phrase “just.”

A coworker was telling me a story at work the other day and at one point she said how she talks to her dog to let her know she is leaving. Then came the words “I know it’s stupid, it’s just a dog.” I don’t know about you but I am so tired of hearing people refer to animals as “just” anything. So I came up with a list of what I think they are just

Just a creation of God
Just a loyal friend
Just a family member
Just a living being
Just a comforter
Just a stress reliever
Just a joy to watch
Just a joy to play with
Just someone to come home to

Just a snuggler
Just created BEFORE humans
Just improve their “owners” health
Just teachers of responsibility

Just LOVE!

Just a joy to watch

Here is what a Facebook follower friend of mine in her own words shared with me about her beloved cat Jasmine pictured above.

Jasmine chilling on the bed with me. I wonder if other people take pleasure in watching their pets enjoy themselves? From jumping on the bed and just enjoying each other’s company to watching her sniff the air whilst sat in the garden or getting her toys out the bowl I store them in and playing with them. I’m sure they do, but it often an unspoken pleasure of pet ownership when in comes to cats. But I enjoy watching my cat just enjoy herself around the house from sunbathing to cackling at birds out the window or sniffing the breeze.

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and for me today I want to express my gratitude & joy.

I was thrilled to see that we just hit 500 blog followers.

I said we just hit 500 followers!

Although the number of followers isn’t as important as the impact hopefully being made for animals…I am so, so grateful!

I think Cino wanted to thank you too! Continue reading

Sunday Pause (Paws): Hand & Paw

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and enjoy some poetry (at least I hope you will). The picture below is one of my favorites. So the up close image of the side of my hand was mistaken for an elephant’s foot (it really was by someone at work). I still love it because it is my hand and Cino’s paw. It’s very special to me. 🙂

HAND AND PAW

A gift from God
For now you’re mine
Put your paw in my hand
And together we’ll be fine

A gentle pet to your paw
You lift it up & reach back
A silent form of communication
Of love we do not lack

Sunday Pause (Paws): Photography

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and capture life’s great moments.

One of my friends is a photographer. I’ve seen what great work she does and have seen many of her photos of people with their pets. So I thought maybe she could take some pictures of Cino & I. I had it pictured in my head how great it would look. She found the perfect basket for Cino to sit in and a blanket to put under it that would look good with her coloring. We were set.

We decided to get together last Sunday and do the photo shoot along with just hanging out and visiting since it had been a while for us. A great way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

I knew Cino most likely wouldn’t cooperate and I was right. Continue reading
