Should pet stores only sell rescue dogs?

Some cities and states have decided pet stores need to sell rescue dogs only.
Lawmakers in Beverly Hills are following Phoenix, Arizona’s lead. It is now illegal for pet stores in Beverly Hills to sell dogs and cats that are not from a shelter or rescue.

I am definitely for measures to be taken that will lessen the effects of puppy mills on those poor animals.

California apparently has two million animals rescued each year half of which end up being euthanized.

A dry mattress, a morning cuppa joe... and Somalia

Since 2009 and two million hits ago, this Blog has had perhaps three or four different purposes. One of them was always to awaken a thankful heart and to encourage a realization of what others go through
almost everywhere
 but in our lovely space

Prayers for Somalia. Today, exhausted doctors are struggling to keep their eyes open. They are frantically attending to screaming patients, many burned beyond recognition, who are continuously entering and exiting the hospital like a horrific revolving door. They are the victims of a double truck bombing that occurred on Saturday on a crowded street in Mogadishu. It is the deadliest attack in Somalia, claiming over 300 lives and counting. Sub-Saharan Africa has not seen this level of violence since the U.S. Embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania in 1998. Somalia’s government is blaming the Al Qaeda linked al-Shabab extremist group for the bloodshed. The Shabab, which once controlled most of the city, have lost much of their territory in the area thanks to the Somali Army and American counterterrorism operations. Despite these efforts, they remain a deadly threat to the people of Somalia. Hundreds of people have been killed or wounded in attacks on the capital this year alone. The Somali president commen

Harvey Weinstein

Just yuk

Unfortunately, the yuck factor keeps people from dealing with the deeper monstrous truths about this issue. If you do a search you will find that Corey Haim and Corey Feldman and Elijah Wood all came out publicly decrying Hollywood's pedophile culture.

Years ago.

Child rapist to have Co-custody of Offspring
 A judge in Sanilac County has awarded joint legal custody to a man who raped a young girl, the victim's attorney said.
 She was just 12 at the time and now has an 8-year-old boy.
 The convicted rapist and biological father was not on the child's birth certificate. With joint legal custody, he could have input in decisions regarding the boy's education, religion and medical issues. He could also end up having the right to spend time with the child.
 A young mother fears the man she says raped her will be allowed parental time with her son. "He was conceived out of rape, but I don't look at that. He's my child. He's a part of me. Not a part of him," the mother said. "I hope he never has any rights to him at all." Now 21, the victim said she was raped by Christopher Mirasolo. Her attorney said when the woman applied for state aid, Sanilac County assistant prosecutor Eric Scott filed a motion to establish paternity and collect child support.

 "A Day In The Life Of A Stray


Dear God please send me somebody who'll care!
I'm tired of running, I'm sick with despair.
My body is aching, it's so racked with pain
And dear God I pray, as I sit in the rain.
That someone will love me and give me a home
A warm cozy bed and a big juicy bone.
My last owner tied me all day in the yard
Sometimes with no water and God that was hard!
So I chewed my leash and I ran away
To rummage in garbage and live as a stray.
But now I'm tired and hungry and cold
And I'm so afraid that I'll never grow old.
They've chased me with sticks hit me with stones
While I run the streets just looking for bones!
I'm not really bad God, please help if you can
For I have become just a "victim of man!"
I'm wormy dear God and I'm ridden with fleas
and all that I want is an owner to please!
If you find one for me God, I'll try to be good
I won't chew their shoes, and I'll do as I should.
I will love them, protect them and try to obey
When they tell me to sit, to lie down or to stay!
I don't think I'll make it too long on my own
Cause I'm getting so weak and I'm Oh so alone.
Each night as I sleep in the bushes I cry
Cause I'm so afraid God, that I'm gonna die!
I've got so much love and devotion to give
That I should be given a new chance to live.
So dear God please, please answer my prayer
and send me somebody who will really care.

I wanted to capture this picture to express so many emotions for you. I also wanted to raise awareness on Stray and rescue dogs. As a baby, Daisy was abused. She could have seriously been in this posistion. I rescued her when she was 5 months old. She was scared, and nervous around people. But....when our eyes met, I felt this indescribable feeling. I knew that I just had to have her, that we had something that will grow as we grow together. I'm glad I took her home that day, November 5th, 2005. Daisy is the greatest dog I could ever ask for. She is so much more then I expected. She has done nothing but bring the greatest amount of joy to my life. She is now a Canine Good Citizen, and a Therapy Dog. I'm going to be starting Rally Obedience with her soon. She truley is, my little guardian angel.

In the US- There are probably about 1-3 million stray dogs...
Everyday more are added to the life of a stray.
And everyday, more just can't fight for themselves no longer.
If considering to own a dog, Please read up on your research. Many strays and dogs in shelters, are there because their owners thought it would be "cool" to have a dog, but didn't know the responsibilities they come with. If you have done your research, and know you are ready. Please, don't buy from a petstore... or breeder. Go to a shelter, and adopt. They are the best dogs as far as personality goes... Save a life... be his hero."
end quote

By the way I figured out what it is about dogs. And the other pets. It is that they allow us to love them unconditionally.

Most humans will not let you love them unconditionally. There are all sorts of walls barriers and limits.

But a good dog a good cat a good horse a good pet, they will allow you to love them to the complete limit of your ability

R K Illuminations 6

We are 
Going to hurtle around in giant
 massive heavy 
Vehicles so fancy 
full of cool air and music, 
At least
 we can do more to
  not kill the animals 
while we do it ...

We'll Be Alright


I'll mow your lawn, clean the leaves out’ your drain
I’ll mend your roof, to keep out the rain
I take the work that God provides
I’m a jack of all trades, honey we’ll be all right

I’ll hammer the nails, I’ll set the stone
I’ll harvest your crops, when they’re ripe and grown
I’ll pull that engine apart, and patch’er up ’til she’s running right
I’m a jack of all trades, we’ll be all right

The hurricane blows, brings the hard rain
When the blue sky breaks
It feels like the world’s gonna change
And we’ll start caring for each other
Like Jesus said that we might
I’m a jack of all trades, we’ll be all right

The banker man grows fat, working man grows thin
It’s all happened before and it’ll happen again
It’ll happen again, yeah they’ll bet your life
I’m a jack of all trades, darling we’ll be all right

Now sometimes tomorrow comes soaked in treasure and blood
We stood the drought, now we’ll stand the flood
There’s a new world coming, I can see the light
I’m a jack of all trades, we’ll be all right

So you use what you’ve got and you learn to make do
You take the old, you make it new
If I had me a gun, I’d find the bastards and shoot ’em on sight
I’m a jack of all trades, we’ll be all right
I’m a jack of all trades, we’ll be all right
