    I just saw a girl say this.

    .. "You know that our planet will eventually be dried out by the sun as it enters the final stages of its lifespan, and then our entire planet will be sucked into the sun and burn? Not even ash will remain, so I wonder....why is it so horrible that species go extinct? Animals...

    they know nothing about time.

    which is a good thing ...they live in the present... they don't have to work or anything like that. they just chill and have a good time and meditate in between and sleep and eat. and they get loved and taken care of by their owners. unless the owners are idiots.

    This was my first ever dog,

    my parents bought her before I was born. She died in 2002 from tumours in her throat. She was the sweetest most loving dog ever, I still get upset all these years after when I think about her. She was named Lady after Lady and the tramp. Such a lovely, beautiful little lady. I...

    We are so lucky to live on a planet with

    such a wealth and abundance of life, and we must always remember that we are just temporary custodians of the earth and must do all we can to keep it healthy for all future generations of not just human beings but all life on earth.

    This is a picture I took

    while at the zoo - in the tiger exhibition. These are some things that poachers use to hunt and kill tigers. Tigers are an endangered species, and there are only 5,000 tigers left in the wild. ( in the U.S.)That's not a lot. It may seem like a big number, but it's not. 100 years...

    Those who think a cat

    or a dog are better, have obviously never taken care of a leaf before.

    I Understand Animals Better Than I Do Humans

    Since I was a small little girl, I have always known I had a way with animals. As I grew older and was aware of my love of nature, I felt they went hand in hand. I soon learned however, that I can understand animals of all kinds...and they understand me. I have rescued...

    Today I was at the barn,

    and a bird flew into the office. He was flying around crashing into walls and into the window and I was worried he was going to get hurt. Luckily he didn't. Then the cat saw him. The bird got cornered on the floor and I thought I should let nature take it's course.. But the cat...

    Did you know that dolphins try to rescue humans

    who are drowning? It’s as if they realize we can’t hold our breath as long as they do, and push you upwards and even try to reanimate bumping you in the stomach. Although , this is believed to be done out of instinct (since humans are about the same size of a baby dolphin...

    I prefer the company of animals to most humans.

    Don't mind children so long as they're not spoilt or precocious little brats. For some reason animals and children really like me too. Even when I visit people with notoriously antisocial pets, they always seem to like me. Maybe it's my cologne.

    I was driving with my family just now

    and we passed two horses alone in a field. One was standing up looking around and watching the other horse while the other one was lying on the ground a few feet away. I really hope that horse is okay and someone comes for it 😞.

    I think breeding pets

    and selling them is wrong, since there are so many animals in need. If someone does that, then I can't respect them.

    where a man was upset that his dog had passed away. The person he was telling about his beloved pet said "I don't know why you are so upset? It was just dog." The man I guess felt embarrassed by this and then tried to act as if it was not a big deal. My heart broke for this...
