Scenes From A Celebration!

There’s a video too, and if Youtube will ever let me upload it, I’ll post it.

Happy Gotcha Day, Rumpy!

Today is Rumpy’s 9th Gotcha Day. It was 9 years ago today I was driving down the street in Winchester, Tennessee, and found a pup hanging dangerously close to the road. He had no cares, no tags, and no microchip. The vet estimated he was between 6 and 9 months old. I looked for his … Continue reading

Fired Lake County Shelter Director Speaks Out!

Here’s an update on the Lake County Animal Shelter Media Frenzy. . Wednesday I told you about Lake County Florida’s Sheriff Gary Borders fired Animal Services Director Jacquelyn Johnston after 147 animals were sheltered during her 9-day tenure.

The Politics of Animal Shelters

Lake County, Florida, has an animal shelter problem. The shelter had traditionally been a high-kill shelter, and had, in the past, taken little action to rectify the situation, to the consternation of the community.  The shelter had been through two directors recently.

Be happy in the moment, that’s enough. -Mother Teresa

Today, humans are worrying about Ebola. The stock market decline. The upcoming elections. And what does June Buggie Cat have on his mind?             What about you? What’s on your mind today?            

Ebola: Fatal for Dogs! And Maybe Cats!

Never mind that we’re being told it’s not easy to get it from another person, and that it’s mostly caregivers of the sick that are infected. Nope, we’re all in panic mode, and that means going … Continue reading

Indeed, that was the philosophy of Descartes, who wrote in Meditations that animals are automatons with no souls, mind, or reason. But as I have grown older, I have watched … Continue reading

Cats and Shelters: They’re Doing the Research. Here’s Some Findings.

I am not a fanatical member of the No-Kill Nation. While I, too, do not want animals to die needlessly, I think mindlessly spouting off at the mouth about not killing animals is too simplistic and naive. There are MANY changes that must take place in order to reach this Nirvana, and I don’t hear … Continue reading

Adventures in Dog Exploitation- First World Edition

Thanks to social media, we now can watch lots of videos of cute dogs and cats doing incredibly funny things. But some of those videos make me cringe. Let’s review the latest craze- the videos of a dog in a spider costume scaring people. I am hoping those are staged, because I keep thinking it will only … Continue reading
