My heart-tugging favourite dogs this week, would have to be Vera and Nola. They came in to the home together, with a sad background, and it would be nice to see them adopted out together. I think they are mother and daughter, and to put it politely, they are a tad chunky. What they need is lots of love and gentle walks, with no treats. When I first saw them in the gloom of the back of the cage, I thought they were wallabys lol, and it took a bit of coaxing to get them to walk, but after a bit they were fine:
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.
