This Tuesday’s Tale: Jack

Today we take a look back at Jack. Jack is a little dog that was found in a dumpster by a little boy. Sadly, this happens more than you think. Honestly, how can people be so cruel?

I wrote a tale about Jack back in October. Kathy, Jack’s pet parent, recently shared some new photos of Jack. I decided to share them with you and give you a link to Jack’s tale.

Below is Jack happy to have tummy time. đŸ™‚

Walk Away Or Fight Back?

Dakota

The cat in the photo above is my cousin’s cat, Dakota. She captioned this particular photo “The Mighty Hunter.” This seemed perfect for this unplanned post.

Dakota is watching a bird in a bush but wasn’t putting a lot of effort into trying to go after it. When my cat, Cino, sees a bird her posture immediately changes to what looks like “attack” mode. There is a choice they have to make, attack or sit back and let it go.

Which choice do you make when you encounter a rude person? Do you attack and fight back or do you calmly sit back and let it go? Continue reading

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

“Fishy”

My niece is here visiting all the way from Norway. This made me think about taking out “fishy.”

Shortly after I adopted Cino, my niece made this fish for her and sent it in the mail all the way from Norway. Such a sweet gift!

I named it “fishy”, but find myself always saying to Cino…do you want to play with “fishy wishy?” I’m not sure why this is, but everything winds up with a “y” at the end, or a word added on that rhymes beginning in a “w”, or both. Her favorite mouse toy has become “mousey wousey.” Her felt puzzle is now “puzzle wuzzle” and her owl toy is of course “owly wowly. Continue reading

This Tuesday’s Tale: A House Is Not A Home Without a Pet

The Tale Of Tammy and Her Love for Animals

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.

First we have Teesha who passed away in 2008.

Sunday Pause (Paws): Really, Take a Pause!

It’s Sunday! A time to kick back, relax, and reflect.

Many of you know about the loss of my sister. This has been a tough week, going to work, trying to act as if everything is fine. Our family has not had time for closure because we haven’t yet had the funeral. We plan to have it this week, maybe this will help a little.

I wrote a poem for today expressing some feelings I have been having through all of this and have heard other people express they felt when they lost a loved one. I hope you enjoy it.

THE WORLD DOESN’T STOP

The world is so busy
The world is so fast
Treating life like a race
How quickly time is passed

Then one day comes
When you receive a call
That one of your loved ones is gone
And now your heart takes a fall

So your race takes a pause
You put the brakes on the spinning top
You look around and wonder
Why doesn’t the rest of the world stop?

Sunday Pause (Paws): A Pause for Healing

It’s Sunday! A time for kicking back, relaxing and taking a break from it all.

I am going to keep this post short & sweet. Our family is going through something right now. It is a sad time for us. I do plan to share about it in an upcoming “Tuesday Tale.” So basically…

Another week has gone by
and I simply want to say,
Be sure to take a pause
and enjoy your Sunday!
