An Unscheduled Play Date
Most loving, devoted, dog owners treasure it when their furry family members are having fun. Today, a black lab wandered onto the farm and met my dog, Cooper, and my grandpuppy, Mila, the golden colored one. She's visiting us for awhile. The three of them had so much fun together.
On this dreary, zillionth day of gray drabness, it lifted my spirits to know they were having such fun with a new friend. I don't know who the lab belongs to. Dogs sometimes visit the farm and then go on their way. This boy has no tags, but did not act like a stray at all. I'll keep an eye out for future visits and try to make sure he isn't lost. Last week an Australian sheep dog visited us. The three of them got along so well. It really makes my day!
"Ask not what an animal can do for you; ask what you can do for an animal." Jasper
"The animals of the world exist for their own reasons. They were not made for humans any more than black people were made for white, or women created for men." ~Alice Walker
The source of the quote is Walker's preface to Marjorie Spiegel's 1988 book, "The Dreaded Comparison" . Her next sentence was, "This is the gist of Ms. Spiegel's cogent, humane and astute argument, and it is sound."
"I was so moved by the intelligence, sense of fun and personalities of the animals I worked with on (the movie) Babe that by the
end of the film I
was a vegetarian."
~ James Cromwell
