I'm thinking the next pet will be a mutt. So tired of learning about all the genetic issues my menagerie has suffered from. First the corgi with hip dysplasia and now the Manx with his painful hindquarters/spine. Poor guys. And the bird that literally doesn't exist in nature who spends his days yelling at the neighbors for daring to walk on "his" street.
Or we'll get a Dalmatian. no one ever has problems with spotted dogs, right? /s
I've made up my mind. I'm moving to Denver in September. Seeing my new granddaughter and wanting to be there to watch her grow pushed me over the edge. I'll miss the desert but its nothing compared to not missing my grandchildren grow up.
I moved up here almost 3 years ago and made some instant new friends (mountain people!–I'd finally found where I belonged). One of my closest new awesome friends revealed tonight that she has ALS, an incurable and terminal disease. The doctor told her 3-5 years. She's young, healthy and an outdoor person like me. She's being so positive but I don't even know how to deal with it. I buried my childhood best friend almost a year ago. We're in our early 40s! This is not fair.
I almost came back two weeks ago when I found this.
There are several places to adopt sloths. But I like this one.http://www.theslothinstitutecostarica.org/
You can also see little Destiny get re-released to the wild.
Y'all - There were 4000 people out there last night. Moms. Dads. Vets.
.. Someone was stabbed. The moms were throwing back hand grenades.
It's getting worse every day.
It will not end peacefully.
Pray. Candles. Hope.
I don't like what I see happening in other areas, where we are attempting to erase elements of the past. I don't think that's the right move.
Some people might disagree with me on that.
This is painful shit. But it is the here and now. It's the present and I think this is where change is going to happen.
