This Tuesday’s Tale: Tee

tuesday-tales-little-pic

The tale of a lucky cat named Tee

Doesn’t Tee look so relaxed and comfortable? What could be better than lying in the garden getting some sun? 🙂 (see post for picture)

Sadly less than a month ago Tee was not so relaxed, but found himself in a terrible predicament. He was found screaming face down in a barn in a pile of junk with his paw stuck in a trap. Below is the actual trap he was found in. Isn’t it horrible?! (see post for picture)

This Tuesday’s Tale Is Your Story: Ray

tuesday-tales-little-pic

The tale of one very special dog named Ray
as told by Colin

Having been bitten by a German Shepherd many years ago, I was subsequently very wary of dogs in general. Over the course of quite a few years, I did get to meet a few nice dogs and, in November 2013, I made a life changing decision that perhaps there was a space in my life for one!

This Tuesday’s Tale: Buddy Unchained

Last year I took a course through RedRover called “RedRover Readers.” Here is a paragraph explaining a bit about the program.

The RedRover Readers program promotes empathy by presenting powerful stories, encouraging children to put themselves in the place of animals, and asking questions that promote critical thinking. A 2009 pilot study of the program (then known as the Humane Education Ambassador Readers) conducted by Inverness Research, Inc. suggests that the program:
~Builds self-esteem and motivates students to take an important subject seriously
~Stimulates additional student-directed learning
~Builds students’ knowledge and potentially affects their behaviors related to caring for pets
~Builds students’ empathy and compassion for pets
