The Social Lives of Dogs – Elizabeth Marshall Thomas

Even if you don’t have a dog and are not a dog person you should read this book. You will be amazed, surprised and touched. If you aren’t then you just are not human. I cried from the very beginning and there are so many touching moments throughout the book. I’m only halfway through and I had to stop and tell you about the book. I do have to say that I would have done things different from the woman who wrote this book as far as the dog that she found on her front porch one day. Busy or not give a stray dog food and water to tide them over. They can not get it for themselves! Would you like to be lost, scared, confused, hungry and thirsty for days on end? Well dogs don’t like it either. You can almost always help yourself. Please remember an animal can’t. Give a helping hand. In spite of that little detour of a rant I do recommend that you read this book. It will give you an entirely new appreciation for dogs. It will show you that if you truly pay attention to your dog that they have been trying talking to you all along.¬†Personally I think cats are the same.

Daniel the Miracle Dog

This fabulous dog survived the gas chamber. I can’t believe we are still doing something so vile Hundreds Want Death-Defying Beagle Named Danieland cruel to animals. There has to be a better option.

Some dogs and cats not only don’t get killed by the gas but end up being burned alive in the pile of animals that have been gassed. What did you think happened to them afterwards? Ever given it a thought. There has to be a better option.

What kind of person can do this job? I don’t want to know anyone like that. Even if that person starts off with some sort of good intentions and sound reasoning it has to do something horrible to their mental health. We can send a person to the moon but we can’t figure this out.

No animal should have to live through that or die that way. Can you just imagine their horror. They have to know what is about to happen. They have the best sense of smell ever and they are the most intuitive of animals. There has to be a better option.

Please, please donate to your local shelters and even vet’s offices for spaying and neutering to be done. Donate food, time, energy and love to the animals who are in shelters. If you don’t help them who will?
