It’s Sunday! Time to kick back & relax and relaxing isn’t just for us.
There are so many animals that never get to really relax. Cows kept in confinement and hooked up to machines so humans can take their milk. Calves kept in the smallest possible area so they don’t build muscle so humans can have veal. Elephants chained up so they can “perform” for humans. Pit bulls living every minutes in fear of abuse so humans can use them to make money in dog fights. The list goes on but since I try to keep my Sunday posts “light” I will stop there. You get the idea!
But the theme of WHO is causing all of this harm is humans. I can’t help but imagine what God would say if we sat down and asked him what he thought about how humans treat his animals.
Cino is able to curl up and relax this Sunday and I hope the animals in your care are able to as well.
Dog fighting. So incredibly cruel and certainly shows us one of the worst sides of human beings. Here is a definition I found online: Dog fighting is a type of blood sport generally defined as two game dogs against one another in a ring or a pit for the entertainment of the spectators or the gratification of the dogfighters, who are sometimes referred to as dogmen.
Pitbulls (and other dogs) are taken and beaten into becoming angry aggressive dogs. Then they are thrown into a ring with another dog to fight it out. They most certainly are terrified, confused, and in pain. Humans call this entertainment. Animals who are in misery tearing each other apart and this is entertainment. Not only entertainment, but humans make money off of the bets on which dog will “win.” (None of the dogs “win.” This is a lose, lose situation for them) Continue reading →
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?
What is the first thought that pops into your head when you see a Pitbull?
It’s not unreasonable that you might be a bit nervous and unsure around them given their reputation. You hear about them attacking people and other animals all of the time. There are all kinds of articles out there saying how dangerous they are, yet on the flip side there are articles that defend them.
Personally, I do not need an article to tell me what to think. I believe Pitbulls are taught by bad people to be dangerous. I hear stories about sweet Pitbulls that are beaten (and a lot worse) so they become mad & mean. Then they will fight for awful people in dog fighting rings.
What is wrong with people that watching two sweet, precious, living, feeling beings tear each other apart and to them it is entertainment?! (My rant for the day) Continue reading →
I was on the internet searching for pitbull puppies when I came across an ad about some for sale in Iowa MN. I called to see if they were still available and they were. So, one weekend we drove down to Iowa to go look at them and once we got there I fell in love with all 4 puppies that they had.
My boyfriend picked out the puppy that he wanted and I got to choose the puppy that I wanted, so in the end we came home with 2 puppies! One we named Duke and one we named Tank.
We had both of them for a couple of months and then…
