Daily Prompt: Menagerie or Zoo?


Daily Prompt: Menagerie

by michelle w. on March 19, 2013

Do you have animals in your life? If yes, what do they mean to you? If no, why have you opted not to?

(Bonus points for adorable animal photos, and double bonus if they’re taken with your phone!)

I would hate to stop and look back as to how many posts I actually have that are based on our animals lol…I think I would be embarrassed.  They are a part of our family.  They require to be daily cared for and sometimes more than once a day with the routine of going out and giving water.  The cats eat two times a day.

Some people live a busy schedule and still have pets while others opt to not have any.

I feel that being a pet owner gives me a sense of responsibility to care for others and remember their needs above my own.

Hubby is sick on the couch today so DC and Trina stay right close to him.  TC is his own character and does his own thing.  He goes where he wants and does what he wants and we obey.  I have already let him out, with the dogs, let them back in and fed the cats and let him back out, while writing this.

I simply ran through the house and snapped where they all were with my phone to get a picture today so it would be a new shot.

Do I vacuum a lot? Daily and sweep sometimes twice to three times a day.  Keeps the house semi cleaner.  Do things get knocked over?  Yes.  Would I trade them in?  Never!

Where else could I find animals that could get along so well?

What are your thoughts on owning pets?

Daily Prompt: Show and Tell 5 Minute Presentation


Daily Prompt: Show and Tell

by michelle w. on March 16, 2013

You’ve been asked to do a five-minute presentation to a group of young schoolchildren on the topic of your choice. Describe your presentation. 

This has to be one of the hardest Daily Prompt Choices yet.  I think that mine will be on “How important it is to care for your animal”.

You Can Help Local Shelter Pets

If you’ve tried to volunteer at a shelter, you might have been told you’re just too young. But that’s no reason to get bummed out! You can do so much more for shelter pets than you might think. Check out some of the cool stuff kids have done at shelters across the country.

  1. Go Viral
    These Hawaiian kids created a promotional video and a mega-catchy song for the Lana’I Animal Rescue Center.
  2. Fill ‘Er Up
    Take a tip from kids in the capital. They helped the Washington Humane Society prepare Busy Buckets—buckets filled with stuff like toys and treats that help, you guessed it, keep shelter dogs busy and happy.
  3. Toy Story
    Check out these awesome cat toys kids made out of extra collar material at Sacramento County Animal Care. Your local shelter might have some extra stuff lying around that would make a great cat toy—all you have to do is ask…and get crafty.
  4. PB & J? Make That PB & K…
    We’re betting Girl Scout Troop 40892 had as much fun stuffing Kong toys with peanut butter as the dogs at McKamey Animal Center had unstuffing them!
  5. Join a Program Just for Kids
    It’s true, some shelters have awesome programs made especially for kids. At the Bay Area Humane Society in Wisconsin, kids even get to help teach shelter pets new tricks.

These are awesome things for children to do that can help pets in each childs area and can spread the word that animals are important.

What would you say to a group of school age children for five minutes?

Would love to hear….leave me a comment.

World Spay Day 2013 February 13th


As I was reading my emails this morning I found this interesting one that I would like to share since this dog will be in a parade in their area and would like the vote from readers.

birthday-012This is Rumpy Dog and June Buggie.  They are all about ASPCA and Today’s Post is all about getting your animal Spayed.

They are famous and have a book…

http://rumpydog.com/2013/02/10/im-the-king-of-the-world/ 

You can purchase the book on http://www.Amazon.com

So here is the scoop on Rumpy today:

I have entered the Humane Society World Spay Day Pet Pageant!

I want to be crowned Mr. World Spay Day 2013. And you can help make that happen.

All you have to do is vote for me here.

Why have I entered this contest? Because I want you to help me raise awareness of this important worldwide event. Because I want to promote spay/neuter of companion animals in all parts of the world.

Because I believe that spaying/neutering of animals is one of the most important things humans can do to improve the plight of companion animals in the world today.

I want you to help me by voting for me and by sharing with your friends. And if you want to enter your companion animal, that’s great too. This is all about getting the word out.

And if you are able to do so, please consider making a donation to the World Spay Day event.

If you’d like to know what events are taking place in your country, check here. In the US, you can find events here.

And it’s not too late for YOUR organization to sponsor an event. Especially if you’re in Utah. There is NOTHING as of yet in that state. *shakes head sadly*

So please help me promote this event by voting for me every day, and by asking all your friends to do so.

 Of course I am going to vote for Rumpy, and June Buggie if she is in the Parade as well.  I went to My local to see what was happening.  Sadly it is in Nashville, TN so it is almost 1 1/2 Hours away with no mention of a parade.  They are also offering something great though.
If you don’t believe in having your animals spayed perhaps you should see Rumpy’s Video:
Home > Find an Event
On February 13th, we will participate in Project Homeless Connect. This event will put us in direct contact with over 350 homeless people, many of which have animal companions. This is our niche, as an organization we work with homeless pet owners, and pet owners housed but living in poverty. By participating in PHC, we will be able to sign more pet owners up for our weekly spay/neuter transport. Each week we provide transportation, spay/neuter, vaccines, deworming, flea/tick treatment and nail trims to pet owners living in poverty.

Some Call It Boring I Call It Progress…


Every day I am seeing growth in our relationship with Peachy…I know I sound like I have a new baby.  In a way, I do…she is taking baby steps around the yard now and finally exploring parts that she never would before.

This is the far back corner of our property and is located behind the apple trees.  As you can see she was still on the leash.  This is progress and a small step from a week ago.

We now release the leash early and she walks back in on her own which is a big accomplishment.

Bonding with hubby is at an all time high and both seem happier for it also…

Having both dogs around either of us was unheard of a week ago, now it is possible.

Having another animal in yard near her was unheard of a week ago as well…

She appears to be adjusting quite nicely…

One funny habit has formed that is a bit odd…she woke to the ice machine dropping ice last night and nudged me a few minutes later as I followed her to the kitchen…she stood near her dish and with her tail wagging…and waiting patiently…hubby has been giving her ice in her water each time he dispenses ice into his glass…

Now she thinks that is what is supposed to happen…

One of the treats in life…

I tried to let her play in the yard with out her leash today and she just sat there and did nothing…

She came right to me when I called though… there are no more signs of her running away… she rolled on her back in the grass a bit so the leash might come off a bit more, perhaps next week.

After such an exhausting day she came back to my office and is enjoying two computer fans and an over head fan…time to nap…

Hope we are not boring you, the progress we are seeing shows that she is healing…that feels so good…

Thank you for reading…
