Tuesday Tales: No Longer Weekly

READ ALL ABOUT IT

Hello all. As Cino is reading about above (see full post for photo), 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 from the commitment of having to do a post every Tuesday. This way I can focus on some new ideas I have for the blog and for helping animals.

This Tuesday’s Tale: Pete & Buster

The Tale Of A Man Who Just Wanted His Dog Back

This is a story from 2014, but I have only seen it recently. It’s about a man named Pete and a dog named Buster. Sadly, when Buster was nine years old, Pete ran into financial trouble and lost his house. He knew it wasn’t good for Buster to live out on the streets, so he did what he felt was best for him.

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 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. 🙂

Sunday Pause (Paws): Just A Rose

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and enjoy the beautiful things in life such as a picture of an adorable dog holding a rose in his mouth and a good poem. I happen to have both of these for you today.

Happy Sunday!

This Tuesday’s Tale: A Look Back

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.

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.

This Tuesday’s Tale: Remembering Lisa

This is a bit of a different Tuesday Tale. It’s about a human being, but it’s also about a dog she loved.

Our family received some devastating news this past weekend. My sister passed away at only 53 years old. Her name was Lisa.

We are still on an emotional roller coaster and still have the funeral to come. I considered skipping this Tuesday’s Tale post, but writing is a healing thing for me, an outlet.

My sister was very sick, although her death was still unexpected. She had a hard time taking of herself, let alone a dog.
