Give Dogs A Voice When They Can’t Speak For Themselves: Stop The Yulin Dog Meat Festival And Slaughter of Dogs in Asia

Give Dogs A Voice When They Can’t Speak For Themselves: Stop The Yulin Dog Meat Festival And The Slaughter of Dogs in Asia

I just received this PSA and I thought it was so important to share with all of you. Please share to spread the word and be a voice for those who can’t speak for themselves. These images from the Yulin Dog Meat Festival are horrifying but if sharing this torture can help in any way than it needs to be seen! Please help stop the violence! Stop the Torture. STOP! I don’t normally do this but this is too important and I must share. I am on my way to Blogpaws this week and thought this needed to be shared… Continue Reading

It’s My Birthday And I Will Do What I Want To

It’s My Birthday And I Will Do What I Want To

Another year. Another Birthday. But, this year is going to be the best yet because I have been reciting my mantra and putting these things into place. It is one thing to say them and it is another thing to actually do what you say. So, for my Birthday this year: – I am not doing anything I don’t actually want to do. – I am not feeling obligated to anyone. – I am only doing what makes me happy. So, if you missed it here is the mantra…… Sound like a plan? I do have a little wish though…. Continue Reading

Melany’s Mantra: Repeat, Rinse And Repeat

Melany's Mantra

Every morning I swear to repeat this mantra. I am going to print it out and hang on my mirror. It is the summer and I want to take some time for myself while still being able to do the things I WANT to do. This means not feeling obligated to do things others think I SHOULD be doing. Here we go. Cue the chanting music and theme lighting. Add a candle and throw in some incense but please spare me the Nag Champa. I think I left that scent back in San Francisco on Haight Street when I was… Continue Reading

You Can Learn A Lot From A Dog

You can learn a lot from a dog!

Yes, you can learn a lot from a dog. I learn from Teddy Brewski every day. I mean, I learned last night that dogs will eat everything (even asparagus) if the opportunity arises. I will let you know how that goes. But what I really want to share with all of you people is this. As I walk Teddy Brewski and watch him walk his favorite walk every day and he always takes time to smell the roses. He also let’s someone else (me) deal with all of the “garbage”. I have decided to let go of a lot of… Continue Reading

FORE: Gone Golfing

FORE: Gone Golfing

I did it. I finally got in touch with a golf pro and am now on the golf course taking lessons. It is super challenging and takes patience, which I don’t usually have but need if I am going to be good at this sport. Yes, this is a sport. I apologize to my friend in seventh grade when I said golf wasn’t a sport. Wow – was I wrong! In my defense, I was an avid softball player and couldn’t see anything else but a softball bat and a ball (and cute baseball players). So, I am finally taking… Continue Reading
