    A little over a year ago,

    I was called by my local shelter that I regularly do volunteer work with that they had a horrible case that no one else was willing to deal with. A puppy mill in PA was seized, and a few of the dogs had to be shipped out of state due to overpopulation in shelters. There was a...

    If I could have any animal

    as a pet I'd want a wolf dog named Naga. and I'd want a falcon named Horus. those are my pets of chose because both could be dangerous yet friendly. Naga would be at the homestead protecting my family while me and Horus would be off doing some exploring. it would be nice.

    I caught a small mouse today in my house.

    It was so small. I love all animals, including mice. I took it across the street and released it. I thought it would find a new home. Half an hour later, I was watching traffic through my front window. I saw that little guy run across the street, jump the ditch, and scoot back...

    Tigers declared to be extinct in Cambodia.

    My heart is shattered. We're responsible for the words 'extinct' and 'endangered'. Our selfish and cruel behavior has no boundaries. It still astonishes me that we have legal serial killers known as hunters in the 21th century.

    I detest animal cruelty

    and the pain, neglect and abuse they endure on our behalf. What makes animal cruelty so frightening, is that they don't have a voice. How would it feel, to be a living organism, with all the senses in tact, under the complete control and submission to any human being in this...

    She is a tad on the heavy side, and she's very nervous. But time and patience will fix all of that. Looking forward to the training ahead! Once I build a bond with her first of course.

    They have never been cruel to me.

    I have a ton at the moment, and it always seems that they never cease to amaze or inspire. I am most happy with them than I am with other human beings, but only because I don't tend to socialize a lot.
