What Would I Do Without My Pets

What Would I Do
Without My Pets?

Purpose of a Dog’s Life (from a 6-year-old)

Ever wonder what a dog’s purpose might be?
The following is the text of an email that I just received. I can’t verify that it is really a true story but it does carry a nice message and says a lot about the value of pets in our lives. It came along with a bunch of cute dog photos at the beginning with the message to “Be sure to scroll all the way down and read the story and thoughts at the end. The purpose of a dog!” Here’s the text of the email:

Being a veterinarian, I had been called to examine a ten-year-old Irish Wolfhound named Belker. The dog’s owners, Ron, his wife Lisa, and their little boy Shane, were all very attached to Belker, and they were hoping for a miracle.

I examined Belker and found he was dying of cancer. I told the family we couldn’t do anything for Belker, and offered to perform the euthanasia procedure for the old dog in their home. As we made arrangements, Ron and Lisa told me they thought it would be good for six-year-old Shane to observe the procedure. They felt as though Shane  might learn something from the experience.

The next day, I felt the familiar catch in my throat as Belker’s family surrounded him. Shane seemed so calm, petting the old dog for the last time, that I wondered if he understood what was going on. Within a few minutes, Belker slipped peacefully away. The little boy seemed to accept Belker’s transition without any difficulty or confusion. We sat together for a while after Belker’s death, wondering aloud about the sad fact that animal lives are shorter than human lives. Shane, who had been listening quietly, piped up, ”I know why.”

Startled, we all turned to  him. What came out of his mouth next stunned me. I’d never heard a more comforting explanation. It has changed the way I try and live. He said,”People are born so that they can learn how to live a good life — like loving everybody all the time and being nice, right?” The six-year-old continued, ”Well, dogs already know how to do that, so they don’t have to stay as long.”

  • Live simply.
  • Love generously.
  • Care deeply.
  • Speak kindly.

Remember, if a dog was the teacher you would learn things like:

  • When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.
  • Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride.
  • Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure ecstasy.
  • Take naps.
  • Stretch before rising.
  • Run, romp, and play daily.
  • Thrive on attention and let people touch you.
  • Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.
  • On warm days, stop to lie on your back on the grass.
  • On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree.
  • When you’re happy, dance around and wag your entire body.
  • Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.
  • Be loyal.
  • Never pretend to be something you’re not.
  • If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.
  • When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by, and nuzzle them gently.

Enjoy every moment of every day! When you are grateful — when you can see what you have — you unlock blessings to flow in your life.

Cat Houses for the Homeless

Cat Houses for the Homeless! (Not What You Think)
Watch how you shape your retirement!! This guy has saved a lot of cats.  Check out the little houses he built for them.

Craig Grant bought a tree farm far away from the city and turned it into a sanctuary for all the cats he has rescued. He lives there with the cats and provides lots of love, care and companionship. It’s hard to imagine that once he was not a cat lover and did not want cats until he met his sons cat Pepper. He also got to experience what it is like raising a litter of kittens.

“Over that time I learned that every cat had its own unique personality and it wasn’t long before the kittens were swinging from my curtains. I didn’t care. Something had changed, I didn’t want to give them up”.  The condo life was not easy for the kitties, so Craig found a tree farm and settled down there for his fur babies. Over the next several months, he rescued more and more homeless and abandoned cats. The number of new residents kept going up, so Craig expanded the sanctuary to make more room for the animals.

The farm was named Caboodle Ranch and is now a permanent home for all the homeless, rescued cats. Each of them has a sad story of their past, but now they are living in heaven. Cats should be able to roam free, and at Caboodle Ranch, that’s what they do. Craig has built many beautiful cat houses and decorated the place with vibrant colors and tons of liveliness. All the cats are spayed and neutered.

Don’t forget to visit Caboodle Ranch (non profit rescue center) at their website and check them out on Facebook.

Canine Nativity Scene

A Nativity Scene was erected in a church yard. During the night some folks came across this scene….

An abandoned dog had been looking for a comfortable, protected place to sleep and he chose the Baby Jesus as his comfort. No one had the heart to send him away, so he slept there the whole night.

We should all have the good sense of this dog and curl up in Jesus’ lap from time to time.

The Proper Hugging of a Baby – All About Hugs

The Proper ‘Hugging’ of a Baby

(this is priceless)

Instructions for properly hugging a baby:

1. First, uh, find a baby

2. Second, be sure that the object you found was

Indeed a baby by employing classic sniffing techniques.

3. Next you will need to flatten the baby before actually beginning the Hugging process..

4. The ‘paw slide’

Simply slide paws around baby and prepare for possible close-up.

5. Finally, if a camera is present, you will need to execute the difficult and patented ‘hug, smile, and lean’ so as to achieve the best photo quality.

If you don’t share this, a dog will pee on your computer!

Having Faith

His first owner also did not think that he could survive.  Therefore, he was thinking of putting him to sleep..
At this time, his present owner Jude Stringfellow came into his life and wanted to take care of him.
She was determined to teach and train this dog to walk by himself.  She thought, all we need is a little faith.
Therefore she named him ‘Faith.’

In the beginning, she put Faith on a surf board to let him feel the movements of the water. Later she used peanut butter on a spoon as a lure and to reward  him for standing up and jumping around.  Even the other dogs at home helped to encourage him to walk.  Amazingly, after only 6 months, like a  miracle, Faith learned to balance on his 2 hind legs and jumped to move  forward.  After further train ing in the snow, he can now walk like a  human being.

Faith loves to walk around now.
No matter where he goes, he just attracts all the people around him.  He is now becoming famous on the international scene.  He has appeared in various newspapers and TV shows — such as Oprah here’s the link for the video:

http://www.oprah.com/media/20080601_tows_tows_20060519_1

There is even one book entitled ‘With a little faith’ being published about him.  He was even considered to appear in one of Harry Potter movies.

His present owner Jude Stringfellow has given up her teaching job and plans to take him around the world to preach, ‘that even without a perfect body, one can have a perfect soul.’

In life there are always undesirable things.
Perhaps a person who feels things are not going as well as they could will feel better if they change their point of view and see things from  another perspective.
Perhaps this message will bring fresh new ways of thinking to everyone.
Perhaps everyone can appreciate and be thankful for each beautiful day that follows.

Life is the continual demonstration of the power of thinking positive and having faith.
Never lose faith.

Adopt A Dog

  • If you want someone who will eat whatever you put in front of him and never say its not quite as good as his mother’s… ..then adopt a dog.
  • If you want someone always willing to go out, at any hour, for as long and wherever you want … ..then adopt a dog.
  • If you want someone who will never touch the remote, doesn’t care about football, and can sit next to you as you watch romantic movies ..then adopt a dog.
  • If you want someone who is content to get on your bed just to warm your feet and whom you can push off if he snores ..then adopt a dog!
  • If you want someone who never criticizes what you do, doesn’t care if you are pretty or ugly, fat or thin, young or old, who acts as if every word you say is especially worthy of listening to, and loves you unconditionally, perpetually .. ..then adopt a dog.
  • BUT, on the other hand, if you want someone who will never come when you call, ignores you totally when you come home, leaves hair all over the place, walks all over you, runs around all night and only comes home to eat and sleep, and acts as if your entire existence is solely to ensure his happiness ..,

..then adopt a cat!

Now be honest, you thought I was gonna say… marry a man, didn’t you?

Toooooooo cute – I love this.

Please save this for the next time you hear someone say:

They have to get rid of their pet when they have a child.

Swiffer Wet Jet Ingredients and possible Fatal Liver Damage

Swiffer Wet Jet, VERY IMPORTANT PLEASE WITH ANY ONE WITH A PET or small children !!!!!!!!!!!
Recently someone had to have their 5-year old German Shepherd dog put down due to liver failure…
The dog was completely healthy until a few weeks ago, so they had a necropsy done to see what the cause was. The liver levels were unbelievable, as if the dog had ingested poison of Some kind. The dog is kept inside, and when he’s outside, someone’s with him, so the idea of him getting into something unknown was hard to believe.

My neighbor started going through all the items in the house. When he got to the Swiffer Wetjet, he noticed, in very tiny print, a warning which stated ‘may be harmful to small children and animals.’ He called the company to ask what the contents of the cleaning agent are and was astounded to find out that antifreeze is one of the ingredients (actually, he was told it’s a compound which is one molecule away from antifreeze). Therefore, just by the dog walking on the floor cleaned with the
solution, then licking its own paws, it ingested enough of the solution to destroy its liver.

Soon after his dog’s death, his housekeepers’ two cats also died of Liver failure. They both used the Swiffer Wetjet for quick cleanups on their floors. Necropsies weren’t done on the cats, so they couldn’t file a Lawsuit, but he asked that we spread the word to as many people as possible so they don’t lose their animals.

This is equally harmful to babies and small children that play on the floor a lot and put their fingers in their mouths a lot.

PLEASE, EVEN IF YOU DO NOT HAVE BABIES, SMALL CHILDREN OR OWN A PET;

PLEASE SHARE THIS INFORMATION! YOU MAY NOT HAVE ANY CHILDREN OR PETS BUT SOME OF YOU HAVE FRIENDS OR FAMILY WITH PETS AND ALSO FAMILIES WITH GRANDCHILDREN AND GREAT GRANDCHILDREN

Thank you

NOTE: I checked this at Snopes and with the ASPCA and found that this is a rumor and these resources claim that the product is safe.  But we should all be careful with the products we use around animals and children.  Be sure to read the labels and ingredients of products because there are many toxic ingredients (especially with animals) that seems harmless but are not.

This is how I heard YOUR day was going….

This is how I heard YOUR day was going….

First you had trouble getting out of bed

You had a stiff neck

 

You washed your hair and couldn’t do a thing with it

 

Your new diet really doesn’t seem to be working out

 

You pulled a muscle when you tried to exercise

 

Your new hat looked better on you at the store

 

You keep losing things

 

The boss chewed you out at work

 

You got caught in the rain at lunchtime

 

Then the lunch you had didn’t seem to agree with you

 

You feel trapped

 

Uninvited guests showed up at dinnertime

 

On top of that you think you’re coming down with the flu

 

And finally, you’re alone in the house at night when you think you hear a noise in the basement

 

MAYBE TOMORROW WILL BE BETTER!!

 

Thought for the Day

Handle every stressful situation like a dog.

If you can’t eat it or play with it,

Just pee on it and walk away.
