My Photo
My husband and I , with our dog, Tate, moved to Buenos Aires, 8 years ago. Life has never been the same since ~ Back in the USA ... life is still not the same !
It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new.
But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.

Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read."

The doors we open and close each day decide the lives we live.

Living on Borrowed Time

Living on Borrowed Time 

Every one of these poor sweet creatures is living its last day. They are all doomed for a walk to the gas chamber. They are in a High Kill Shelter. Some are just babies, some are elderly and should be enjoying their last years being loved and petted and well fed.
Some had a family but for whatever reason, those (in) humans let the dog go to a shelter rather than spend a moment and find a loving home, a safe place for them.

This is why there are many days that I think I like animals better than people.
At least some people.

There are people that I love and they are the angels like those who work at Animalkind in Hudson NY.
That is where I found my sweet little Minette.
Who makes me smile, cuddles me when I cry and generally entertains and keeps me from feeling like the only person on the planet some days.

So what I would love for you to do is to repost this or share the link to the shelter.
See if you know someone who might want to save a life and have a sweet pet .

If there is a place where people who mistreat animals go someday ... I hope it is really miserable.

and not just dogs

Calling all Angels

Darby and Friend Comfort each other in OCAS - a High Kill Shelter in Orlando Florida.

There is still time to save them.

Darby ID # 299449

and unnamed friend ID # 299546

Time is running out ... somebody .. save them.

They will be euthanized September 4th.

It would be nice if you re-blog this too ... the more people who see it the more hope there is.

Thank you !

The Cat Whisperer

Minette thinks she rules this house but I just let her think that .
I am very diplomatic that way.

She runs amok, knocking things over and off and down.
She sits in windows watching chipmunks.
She sits by the doors in the garden room, on a pillow that is meant just for her, watching for chipmunks.
She might be getting just a little neurotic.

If I walk into a room and make the sound CHI ... as in CHIpmunk .. she flies across the room to the window or door and stares intently, where is the chipmunk.
She is easy to mess with.

I can leave her at the window staring and go to the supermarket and have a nice drive home and she will be in the same spot ...

Neurotic might not be a strong enough word.

When she takes breaks from obsessing over chipmunks ... she concentrates on getting my attention.

She manages this by ... walking where she should not . Dresser tops, kitchen counters, glass stove top !!
generally irritating me ..
As in just now, trying to climb into the trash basket. Which fell over. Which spilled papers out ..

She laughs at me when I scold her.

But she does understand when I hold my finger or hand up in front of her face .. she bites .. she loves me therefore she bites me.
I have tiny holes all over me ... I am well loved.

So I hold my hand in front of her face and tap her on the nose... she Hates that !
Now if she starts to chew on me, I hold my hand up and she immediately flattens her ears and stops biting.

She just fell into the trash basket, time to go  ... we must have a Talk.

I am the Cat Whisperer ..

We all need friends, large or little.

Even the blonde hair color .. definitely going to look into this.
Thank you to Living the Life in St Aignan for the inspiration and the photo !!
