Pets can be wonderful additions to a family but many pets end up at the shelter due to a lack of forethought. Dogs and cats that are reasonably taken care of will live for ten to sixteen years. Think about the amount of care you have time to give before deciding to get a pet.

It would be wise to talk to a veterinarian to find out what breed would fit into the family best. A groomer can let you know how much grooming the pet will require and how often professional grooming will be needed....

LIFE'S A TRIP

 

Life is kind of like the weather forecast. We may hear .... cold, windy, freezing rain, driving conditions hazardous, visibility poor. Use extreme caution. It is good for us to use extreme caution so that we don't slip off the spiritual highway of life, down the ravine of negativity and self-pity. We have very poor visibility if we are looking only with our self-centered ego vision and not buckled up with the love and comfort of The Creator. Surely we are headed for danger if...

I often see "backyard dogs". Dogs who for one reason or another spend most or all of their lives tied to a doghouse or locked in a fenced in area. "What enjoyment do people get from having a "backyard dog?"

Maybe they chose a puppy based on cute rather than practical. Cute could be a 130 pound St. Bernard or a 20 pound Shih Tzu. The commitment...

My brother, Feather in the Wind - James Edward Ebbing - and I went canoeing on the rivers of Indiana, enjoying the Indiana spring weather and being with each other. We always have a good time with one another and laugh a lot, teasing each other. On this particular canoe trip, we would canoe for a while and then look around the river banks and fields for arrowheads, flint, and Indian artifacts that sometimes show up on the surface of Mother Earth due to soil erosion, farming, etc. My big brother...
