Whenever Anyone Says Dogs Don’t Think–Show Them This

 

Of course, the web is rife with made-up stuff, so when Cait first sent me this (after I said, “awwww”) I immediately went to track it down to see if it was real.

And it is. They even have a video.

Dog Always Brings A Leaf To ‘Buy’ Himself Treats At The Store

“Staff have made sure he’s only getting treats safe for dogs to eat, and they do limit his purchases to just a couple a day (to stave off inflation in both the leafy currency and his waistline).”

Li ZiQi and Ikigai = Peace in the Present

I’ve been intensely struggling with the hectic way of the western world. Which is not normal for me once I can get my hands in the dirt and grow things.

So, as I tend to do when I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed, I slow myself down and remember to pay attention. Because I know the way through will appear when I do.

I always get a chuckle out of the synchronicity of what does show up.

Li Ziqi was one of the recommended videos I saw while uploading videos to a client’s website. I’m totally smitten. I want to live on her farm.

In this one, she whips out a living room furniture set in bamboo. Many of her others are about growing and […]

“A Good Sailing Day”

The winds, they are a blowin’ today. Skies are blue. Clouds are billowing. Air is crisp. And I LOVE it!

So when she, likewise, shares with me that it’s a good sailing day where she is, there is no need for further explanation. Message sent and received. Joy shared.

Please Stop Clicking on “Funny” Viral Videos of Animals Being Treated Cruelly

Can I just say… STOP! People, just stop clicking on supposedly funny videos where ignorant people are too unaware or just don’t care that they’re treating their animals cruelly. I won’t be linking to either video. Nor will I share any photos for either of these.

In the span of two days, I’ve had two separate people send me links to videos they thought were hysterically funny. One was of a young woman in a rough neighborhood being accosted by two other young women. She was walking her Pug on a leash. When one of the other women came toward her, she flung her dog THROUGH THE AIR! WHILE ON THE LEASH! BY THE NECK! and smacked this woman so hard […]
