rl 4Rob Laidlaw’s newest animal protection book is “Saving Lives and Changing Hearts: Animal Sanctuaries and Rescue Centers.” It focuses on animal rescues and the sanctuaries that provide homes for these animals; it also explains what a true sanctuary is as opposed to those who pose as such.

I received “Saving Lives and Changing Hearts: Animal Sanctuaries and Rescue Centers” in a shipment of books at the library I work at last week and was very excited to read it having been familiar with Rob’s previous books:

“No Shelter Here, Making The World A Kinder Place for Dogs”
“On Parade, The Hidden World of Animals in Entertainment”
“Wild Animals in Captivity”

I flipped through the pages and to my great surprise a “very special tiger” { TONY } has a feature page, including ALDF’s fight to relocate him to a reputable sanctuary. I thanked Rob for including Tony in his…

Dogpaddling Through Life

I am a sad dog.

I have been blogging for close to two years now, and I have posted something most every day. But I have never been chosen for Freshly Pressed.

All this time I have been consoling myself that it was because I am a dog, and they never choose dog posts for Freshly Pressed.

But last night I was checking out the latest, and there it was.

A post.

About a dog.

Written by a dog.




I am devastated.

That’s a hard pill to swallow.

Excuse me while I go cuddle with my stuffies.

State governments and resident hunters/trappers have been wantonly brutal and excessive in their ‘management’ (killing) of wolves; this is not acceptable due to the individual suffering of wolves, and it is a clear threat to the future of wolves and their DNA diversity.

Last fall, right from the starting gate, Idaho and Montana began to carry out their their diabolical plans for killing wolves. First there was a horrendous bow and arrow season, followed by deliberately mis-aimed bullets (gut shots – so wolf tags could be used for another day), and barbaric trapping and ‘dispatching’ of the trapped wolf in unthinkable ways. Uncountable boastings, postings, and photographs from wolf hunters on public forums have all documented evidence of a brutal regime celebrating and glorifying the killing of wolves. We have read ‘instructions’ on how to slowly poison wolves, “gut shoot…

Nipple Morning Aflame

Scantily-clad nymphet
too hot in summer morn

rustic downright child
not more than schoolgirl

half-baked makeup
half-heartedly splattered:

Nipple morning aflame
slight upward tilt
to stare back at you


Hear this on chirbit
