I found it hard to pick my favourite dog this week, but I chose little Max because he loved his walk so very very much. He's an unusual dachshund staffordshire bull terrier cross, with the coat of a staffordshire, and the shape of a dachshund. He's so close to the ground, his long nose almost drags when he walks, and when he gets excited and jumps, he barely gets an inch into the air. Cute as.
Good news this week. Snookie is an escape artist, and will take any opportunity to find a horse or something to bark at. He was adopted once already, but had to be bought back. Now he's found himself a nice home in Spreyton with a couple of dogs to play with. And, Rubie is a very fit looking kelpie and she's gone to a lovely lady, who already works with dogs, so she's in good hands.
Esmerelda lived with us for a couple of months, then one night she ripped through a window screen, and disappeared into the night, never to be seen again.
My cousin found Puss as a kitten, stuck in the wall cavity of her shed at Gunns Plains. She convinced me to keep her. She wasn't an affectionate cat when she came here, but became more so as time went on.
"Thousands - millions and billions - of animals are killed for food. That is very sad. We human beings can live without meat, especially in our modern world. We have a great variety of vegetables and other supplementary food, so we have the capacity and responsibility to save billions of lives." - His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama.
