A Promise Made - A Promise Kept
When the Critter Costume challenge was put up, I admit fully that I was WAY too happy about it. I have seven animals and I dress them up regularly. Mostly my dog, Rosie, and one of my cats, Ember. Rosie tries to eat her clothes but she looks absolutely adorable doing it. Above is her failed attempt to eat her reindeer antlers... a photo that did make it into the Halloween Costume challenge because frankly, a dog dressed as a reindeer knows no season!
The important thing about a man and his dog
He, and me, and G. We love this spot. We love this spot because of the dog, and because of the ocean and each of our connection with it. And I can only speak for me, but I love this spot because of us.
Face-to-face with Fergus
By Halloween 2009, Fergus was at the peak of his popularity. Of all the Rottweilers with their own Facebook pages, he was the most handsome, the most clever, the most popular. He was, as they say, a good boy.
Hola! Soy Dora!
Since my childhood, there was always a macaw crossing life paths with me. Maybe I was destined to have a macaw as guardian angel. Not as my own pet. My dad always said these colourful birds, with huge wing span of about 3ft, obviously needed to be kept on huge bird cages .
Styling My Dog Using The Halloween Clearance at Pet Stores
If you saw a previous work I written for this same challenge about my current pup's last Halloween costume, you would have seen that I mentioned a Halloween costume seen on this pup from a photo I had found (Article found here). After doing a bit more looking, I actually found another costume that this dog had worn in the time he and I were in each other's lives. This was a costume I found at PetSmart in the "Clearance" section one day when my mom and I went one night close to closing time for some dog food- I just knew I had to buy it the very second I found it. I was not putting it back on the shelf.
Smartpup for Jaxon
At the beginning of this year, we had officially finished fundraising the 20 thousand dollars for my son Jaxon. We were supposed to visit Smartpups in August to meet the pup and the pup’s trainer working with my son Jaxon. The dog will be learning how to sniff out his diabetes low sugars and save his life from hypoglycaemia that can lead to serious health problems. Hypoglycaemia can cause seizures, unconsciousness, coma and even death. Due to Covid, we were unable to cross state borders due to lockdown, so we could not meet this pup; we then rescheduled for March 2022. The dog will either be a Labrador or a Golden Retriever breed. I’m not sure which puppy will be just yet as nobody picks the puppy they need to meet before a match is made.
The Case Against Pets
Why keeping a pet is fundamentally unethical As the current guardian of seven cats and two dogs whom I treasure more than words can express I was taken off guard to say the least by the strength of the case made in the piece. I have no problem accepting the ethical arguments that show conclusively in my view that the mistreatment of non human animals is morally wrong. Yet I still eat and use products derived from animals, including products that almost certainly were derived from animals whose treatment I would equate with torture. That said my intention here is not to address my obvious lack of ethical principles in this regard.
