Loss

If you have ever lost a loved one, then you know exactly how it feels. 
And if you have not, then you cannot possibly imagine it.

A Little Dog That Wags His Tail

A little Dog that wags his tail
And knows no other joy
Of such a little Dog am I
Reminded by a Boy

Who gambols all the living Day
Without an earthly cause
Because he is a little Boy
I honestly suppose —

The Cat that in the Corner dwells
Her martial Day forgot
The Mouse but a Tradition now
Of her desireless Lot

Another class remind me
Who neither please nor play
But not to make a “bit of noise”
Beseech each little Boy —

Emily Dickinson

Dog Grooming

How Often Should You Wash Your Dog?
The American Kennel Club weighs in. 

Sixth Sense

Most dogs owners will tell you their pets have an uncanny ability to sense when something is amiss. Dogs are believed to possess a "sixth sense" in detecting danger or an imminent event. Now, researchers at the Curie Institute in Paris, France, have found dogs, specifically German Shepherds, have the ability to sniff out breast cancer in women with 100 percent accuracy. These dogs were also able to predict migraines, UTI, and hypoglycemia. MORE

Become Like The Sun

Become like the sun.
If you do so, all darkness will be dispelled.
No matter what happens, 
live confidently with the conviction that you,
yourself are the “sun.
Of course, in life there are sunny days and cloudy days.
But even on cloudy days, the sun is still there.
Even when you are suffering, it is vital that you strive
to keep the sun shining brightly in your heart.

Inseparable

Like the cat 
who finds her way back home over a thousand miles, 
like the dog 
who waits for his master to arrive on the train that never comes, 
like the one 
who keeps a vigil at her master’s grave until she too can cross the bridge, 
some people and their pets 
are woven together by threads of life and they cannot, 
and will not, for long 
be separated. 
― Kate McGahan

A Cat Is


A cat is a purring parcel of paradox,
a cunning collection of contradictions.
A cat is lazy and busy, dainty and savage,
affectionate and aloof, greedy and finicky,
sound asleep in one instant,
and awake and stalking in the next.
A cat is a limp puddle of softness,
surrounding a steel-hard and ever-alert set of muscles.
... A cat has the face of a pansy flower,
and is just as velvety.
A cat holds infinity in her eyes,
and your heart in her front paws.
- Leonore Fleischer

Sylvester



SYLVESTER is the black and white cartoon cat 
who often sputters "Sufferin' Succotash!" 
when he is thwarted by his main adversary, Tweety Pie, 
the little yellow canary. 
Although he tried millions of tricks, 
he never got the canary 
and always wound up being the fall guy!
