trying to keep myself going



Just wanted to share something that someone sent me. I had some problems with the people (we let stay in our hom basically free to help them out )and our dogs. My dog nipped and him and he sad he would crush his skull if he did it again. I am very protective of my dogs and they have never acted this way to anyone. I ended up losing my temper and yelling at them when maybe I shouldnt have. I may have to adopt my dogs out to avoid further problems. I love my dogs very much. I will get into the story later when I have the time. I am exhausted and stressed out over all of this. Here is something that I really liked reading. God bless all of our four legged and feathered friends:


Ten Commandments for a Responsible Pet Owner as dictated by the pet.

1. My life is likely to last 10-15 years. Any separation from you is 
likely to be painful.

2. Give me time to understand what you want of me.

3. Place your trust in me. It is crucial for my well-being.

4. Don't be angry with me for long and don't lock me up as punishment. 
You have your work, your friends, your entertainment but I have only 

5. Talk to me. Even if I don't understand your words I do understand 
your voice when speaking to me.

6. Be aware that however you treat me I will never forget it.

7. Before you hit me, before you strike me, remember that I have teeth 
that could easily crush the bones in your hand and yet I choose not to 
bite you.

8. Before you scold me for being lazy or uncooperative ask yourself if

something might be bothering me. Perhaps I'm not getting the right
food, I have been in the sun too long or my heart might be getting old
or weak.

9. Pleasetake care of me when I grow old. You too will grow old.

10. On the difficult journey, go with me please. Never say you can't bear

to watch. Don't make me face this alone. Everything is easier for me if you
are there because I love you so.

Take a moment today to thank God for your companions. Enjoy and take 
good care of them. Life would be a much duller, less joyful thing 
without God's critters. Please pass this on to other pet owners.

We do not have to wait for heaven to be surrounded by hope, love and 
joyfulness. It is here on earth and has four feet.

Dear carouselqueen70:

I don't know why I found your blog just now.  I have never visited anyone's space.  Perhaps, the universe wishes for me to lend an ear.

I'm sorry to read of your sisters death.  Be patience with yourself.  Grief takes many forms and it takes time to process.  You are not obligated to speed up the process.  Just stay with us in the present moment.

As far as your situation with your dogs.  All I can say, is that animals like children, have a good sense of people.  I will say a little prayer for your home and that things balance out so you will not have to send your dogs out.

Take a moment today and step outside and be with nature.  Take a deep breath and find just ONE thing to be thankful for.  Make a big wish of where you want to be and what you want to do in your life and let it go....let the universe catch it on the next gust of wind.

And may it return to you shortly with a miracle attached.

Blessings of love and light,

Hey. mebre40 said It all and very well too. I just saw a heartbreaking story on the news of a rather large lady laughing away on her mobile phone while she was outside court. Her crime? Leaving her german Shepherd dog tied up In a house to die. It was found starved to death. I had to walk away from the television. People like that make me sick and very, very angry. We need more people like you In the world, people who care about animals. Love Pam xx

Bre is in the same mindset I am, I would trust the instincts of my animals above all else. The fact you opened up your home to this person and they are threatening your animals...I would tell them to hit the road and find someone else to freeload off of. I love this peice written for animals. As you can tell from visiting mine, I'm definitely an animal lover. People can find their own way in the world, our animals depend on us for everything, food, water, love and safety. (Hugs) Indigo

Are they still living with you?? Yea, I'm protective about my animals to. They clearly have a 6th sense to do people that we often don't see through like they do. I hope and pray that you will not have to adopt them out. I would fight tooth and nail against it :)
Take care

Hun, your dog knows and I think in your heart so do you. Something is happening that perhaps you have not seen with this man and your dog. He is the guest, your dog is your family.

Thanks so much for sharing this with me.  You allowed the animals a voice today.  It will make me appreciate my cat more today.  I love him to pieces, yet now I appreciate him even more, and see things from his side.  Anyway, I came by to say congrats on being a Guest Editor's Pick.
