Sunday Pause (Paws): Helping A Family & Their Dog

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and consider extending a helping hand for a family & their dog.

I know this is a different kind of Sunday post from what I normally do but helping animals is my mission. When I read the post an old coworker had out there about her dog, Mack, I felt I had to try to help.

Her dog has been taken from her family and is currently at a boarding facility because of some incidences of him getting out of the house or yard and running up to people or other animals and scaring them.

Sunday Pause (Paws): Butterfly Wings

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, grab a cup of coffee or tea, and take flight with a butterfly.

BUTTERFLY WINGS

Oh you beautiful butterfly
Those wings can take you oh so high
Oh to have those butterfly wings
Oh what joy they must bring

Oh butterfly with wings so great
Can you fly beyond the golden gate?
Please find my dear beloved sis
And give her a big butterfly kiss

Then can you fly to all the farms
And let the animals feel loving arms?
Then fly to a shelter and calm the nerves
Of all the animals without a home they deserve?

Can you stop by those who have a home
But are mistreated and all alone?
For a while will you stop and play
To bring some joy to their day?

Sunday Pause (Paws): A Dream Tale

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, grab a cup of coffee and read a little story…a little dream tale.

ONCE UPON A TIME…

A princess had been working hard at her day job and on her blog at night. She was also battling a bad cold so she was extra tired when she went to bed that night. Thoughts were going this way & that way in her head and soon she was in a dream.

She heard about a horse that had ran off and his family, who lived in Canada, was very worried. There was a sighting of the horse and the word was he was last seen standing in the middle of a parking lot. The parking lot was in a strip mall in the town the princess had grew up in. She knew this area well so she drove down there to try to help.

Meanwhile the family heard where their beloved horse was so the man jumped in his car and took off to go and get him.

Back at the strip mall the horse was now standing in the parking lot frozen like a statue.

Sunday Pause (Paws): For Paws, Hooves, & Feet

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and come along with me to take a little closer look at a few of the animals I have featured in my banner.

Dana loves animals. Her family adopted Sarge when he was just a puppy and was a beloved family member for years. Here is Dana with him when she was 10 years old. Awww.

Meet “Silly Sarge”, the painting she did of him to honor his memory.

Sunday Pause (Paws): Time

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and remember.

Time, it certainly does fly by.

Yesterday was already the one year anniversary of my sister’s death. My mom & I were sitting on the bench at the cemetery talking about how fast the year went. Sometimes we still think her death was just a dream.

The best way for me to get out my emotions is through writing poetry. So here is one I wrote remembering my sister Lisa.

Prioritize, the list can wait
Because it will soon be too late

We say “tomorrow” in our exhaust
Not realizing the time will soon be lost

Time it seems to quickly pass
Slow down, you’re going way too fast

One day I go to pick up the phone
But then I remember you’re never coming home

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!

Fireworks Are No Fun For Furry Ones

If you live in the United States it’s about to get real loud!

They may be pretty and we may have been doing them for hundreds of years, but it is now that we are truly paying attention to what affects fireworks have on our animal friends.

If you have a pet they are counting on you to protect them and comfort them. They don’t understand what all of that extremely loud booming noise is.

This picture below of my Cino is from last night. As cute as it is (at least I think it is), she was actually startled by some fireworks going off in our neighborhood. She first had this reaction as if to say…
