Injured Bird

Birds are so fun to watch fly around, not to mention how enjoyable it is to listen to them sing. Cino also enjoys watching them out the window and does a funny ducking down into “attack” mode when they fly by. This Mother’s Day our family enjoyed watching beautiful birds out a “Bird Viewing” window at a cute store in a small town. There is no doubt birds are beautiful and fun to have around.

Unfortunately today, when I was driving home on my lunch break, I noticed a bird in the middle of the road. I noticed something else next to the bird and my first thought was the bird was just eating something from the ground. As I got closer, the bird flew away. Unsure of what was lying in the road, I drove around it and as I passed by and was looking down, I found myself eye to eye with a very injured bird.

This Tuesday’s Tale: Pigs, Goats, and a Wombat…Oh My!

This week’s tale isn’t about just one animal, it is about 16 of them.

I saw this article called “16 Amazing Animal Stories That Prove 2016 Wasn’t All Bad” on people.com. What really struck me about this article was that it was about people being compassionate. Take the guys below. A bachelor party in the woods turned into helping a mother dog and her puppies. Read the full post here.

Different Views, But Mine Can’t Be Wrong

Why I Am So Passionate About Helping Animals & Spreading The Word

Eye rolls, laughs, arguments, and comments; I’ve experienced them all as an animal advocate.

Are animal lovers rare? How would you define an animal lover? Can you be an animal lover and not get involved with animal welfare issues?

My opinion is animal lovers are not necessarily rare. Most people love them and have a pet in their family; a dog, cat, bird, or hamster maybe. I think most people are just simply unaware of the cruelty going on out there.

But there is another side, there are those who wouldn’t harm animals, but see them as “just animals.” “Just animals!” Because they are not the same as us, does not mean they have any less right to be here and to be treated with respect. Animals feel pain if you hit them, they bleed if they are hurt, they need food & water to survive, they get happy, sad, scared, stressed, & sick. I’m not seeing a lot of basic need differences.

Sunday Pause (Paws)

Thanksgiving is only a few days away. A time to reflect on what we are thankful for.

Here is a beautiful video of the sun shining over the water, the waves moving, and a beautiful song about what we can be thankful for and where it all comes from. I encourage you to view the pictures below as you listen to the video about these beautiful things.

It’s Sunday! Kick back, relax, and enjoy!
