    Life In The Woods

    About Walden Pond by Henry David Thoreau "I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. I did not wish to live...

    My Ex Neighbour

    My ex neighbour asked me to pop in & check on their dog while they were moving house.  I called round in the evening to find him shut in a dog crate, they had intended that he would stay there for over 24 hours. I was horrified, he had wet his blanket, knocked all...

    It doesn't stop me from eating meat

    but it makes me wonder what I'd do if I was prime minister. I would have cameras put up in there and security to make sure everyone follows the guidelines, I would make sure the animals are happy, safe well fed, are in good health and are able to go outside for 24 hours a day...

    I went into sea world and i know a lot of people like seaworld but its completely gross and cruel to what they do in there. First off it smells like fish and crap in there. The places and the pins for the animals are too small. The animals look fat and miserable. It's not very...

    How could someone even do this?

    It's an ANIMAL. They do not know the difference between right or wrong (unless you train them, even then they do mess up from time to time) Do not take your anger out on an animal. Doesn't matter if it's a dog, cat, turtle, horse, etc. Cruelty to animals is absolutely horrible...

    I Don't Understand.

    Why do people get pets and abuse them? Or neglect them. It makes no sense, whatsoever. If you have a pet, cherish it. Don't starve it, or hit it. Don't move out of your house and leave your pet there.(I know someone personally who has done that) I know someone personally who has...

    Be kind not cruel.

    He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. Be kind, not cruel. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.

    Animal Cruelty

    I do not understand why any one would want to hurt a precious animal. They are so helpless and defenseless. Animals do not normally cause problems in the world unless they are threatened or hungry. They are just trying to survive.
