Life Lessons for Humans, Provided by Birds

I recently read a news story about a pair of bald eagles who are nesting on a cell phone tower in Miami. Birds are amazing creatures, aren’t they? As humans have stolen practically all the earth’s land, birds have found a way to survive in spite of us. And isn’t  it wonderful that they have? In addition … Continue reading

#TBT: Best Friends, Then and Now

I ran across a couple of old photos of the Rumpster this week, and this one particularly caught my interest. It’s Rumpy with Junior, back 8 years ago. You can see time has grayed Rumpy’s face, and neither gets around as well as he used to, but they’re still the same lovable creatures they always were.    

Choosing My Battles and Moving On

March 11th is Humane Lobby Day in Tallahassee, Florida. It’s an opportunity for ordinary folks like me to talk to my elected officials about my stance on legislation impacting animals. I’m not going to attend. I know! I know! If I wasn’t going to go, why did I make such a big stink about how I was … Continue reading

It’s International Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day!

Just when things couldn’t get any better, I learn that today is International Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day! And who is the public face of dog biscuit appreciation? OK, maybe I’m not, but I should be. Can’t seem to find any info as to the hows and whys of this holiday, but who cares! It’s a … Continue reading

It’s Walking the Dog Day!

Have you noticed all these special dog days on the calendar? Just Friday we celebrated Love Your Pet Day, and now here it is Walking Your Dog Day! Studies indicate that as many as 40% of owners do not regularly walk their dogs. There are any number of reasons why. Earlier this week I touched … Continue reading

Diary of a Dysfunctional Pet Family

I have a confession to make: We are a dysfunctional family. As the sole human in the mix, I have to accept full responsibility, though I really don’t want to. But what kind of goober would I be if I blamed it on the cat?   Let me explain. I wake up every morning to … Continue reading

It’s OK- My Dog is Friendly!

I hate those words. They always seem to come from a dog owner that means well, but doesn’t think past their own nose. Sure, your dog is cute, and happy, and obeys ALL of your commands, right? No. Your dog never comes when you call him or her away from me. But it’s OK, because … Continue reading

Do You Hafta Have Money to be an Animal Welfare Advocate?

Last night I attended a grassroots meeting held about an hour from here; the meeting was sponsored by Grey2K and the Humane Society of the US. Both groups sent me an email about the meeting, and both emails mentioned start time was 6 PM. At 6 PM I rolled up, only to learn the meeting actually started … Continue reading

I’ve Partnered with Best Friends Animal Society!

I need your help. OK, so really, you’d be helping Best Friends Animal Society, but you’d also be helping me. What? Huh? Let me back up. Best Friends Animal Society is partnering with influential bloggers (They think I’m influential? How cool is that!) to get new members. What’s in it for me? If I recruit 100 … Continue reading

Light Cat Litter? Here’s the Scoop!

I’ve used clay litter for years, and it’s all Bubba Cat’s fault. When he was a kitten, he would not use the litter box. Instead, he would go right beside the box. I took him to the vet, and had him checked out. Bubba was healthy, so the vet suggested it may be the litter … Continue reading
