We’re Here, We’re Just Thinking

Hello all!

I wanted to let you know that we are still around. ๐Ÿ™‚ Things have been a bit busy. This is a busy time of year at my job, there are things I am trying to resolve at the place I live, I am working on a logo for my friends photography business, and I have been photographing, editing, and enlarging some of my own photos to frame.

Besides those things, I have been doing a lot of thinking. My sister’s death has really made me take a look at my life and I am at a bit of a crossroads right now.

Tuesday Tales: No Longer Weekly

READ ALL ABOUT IT

Version 2

Hello all. As Cino is reading about above, I will be taking a break from weekly Tuesday Tales. In case, you do not know what my Tuesday Tales are, they are stories I share about animals on…well Tuesdays. These stories are from people I know, stories from the internet, my own stories, and stories from you out there. I will still do Tuesday Tales from time to time, just not weekly.

My intent is not to back off from my blog, but to free myself Continue reading

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. ๐Ÿ™‚

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 Postย 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
