The question is why?

I just finished reading about another animal who has been tortured by humans. I'm still crying.Why, that is the first and almost impossible question to answer... Why... Arn't we bigger better more inteligent then other animals? Why, did it give them pleasure? Why, didn't we train our children to love and respect others. Why do we not have any compassion anymore?

Is there no limit to the horrendous ability the human has to injure  helpless trusting loving pets?

I get notification of causes to my email account and the story of Titus broke my heart.  Just look at this baby's body the story goes that he and his owner were playing in the park. but here is a verbatim copy of the message.
His name is Tidus, and what happened to him, could happened to your dog…
Two weeks ago, Tidus was happily playing in the park with his owner, a normal evening walk/play socializing with other dogs in the park… All of a sudden, Tidus was nowhere to be seen.
His owner looked everywhere for him. He was wearing his collar, tag with telephone number, microchip, surely if he was lost he would be found and returned to her… Minutes passed, one hour and there was no trace of Tidus. The park and every adjacent street are combed. There was no trace.
Someone says he has seen a group of youngsters walking towards a solitary part of town walking with a tail wagging dog.
Tidus was found three hours later, and nothing could prepare it's owner for what she was about to find.
 This baby is fighting for his life. Please help him...
FULL STORY ...CHIP-IN and more heartwrenching pictures please see link ..
If you can only give a dollar give it... some day you may need help too... but I pray to God it is never for anything like this.

Paralyzed Dog walks again - help for humans?

not a dachsund, my pit bull coco.
this is wonderful... Copied verbatim
From CARE2
"Dogs with spinal cord injuries that prevented 
them from using their back legs are able to 
walk again, thanks to receiving a transplant 
of cells grown from the lining of their nose.
You can see the results yourself for a 
10-year-old dachsund, Jasper, via a video on the BBC. As his owner, 
May Hay, noted:
“Before the treatment we used to have to wheel Jasper round on a trolley 
because his back legs were useless. Now he whizzes around the house and 
garden and is able to keep up with the other dogs. It’s wonderful.”
Out of 34 dogs in a trial, 23 had the cells injected into the injury site; 
the rest received an injection of neural fluids. Many of those who had 
received the transplants of olfactory ensheathing cells (OEC) were able — 
quite miraculously —  to walk on a treadmill, with the aid of a harness. 
Some dogs also regained bowel and bladder control though not in 
significant numbers, say the Telegraph.
The olfactory system is the only part of the body in which nerve fibers 
keep growing in adult mammals. Cells called olfactory ensheathing cells 
(OEC) are found at the back of the nasal cavity. They are located around 
the receptor neurons that help us smell and send signals to the brain; 
they must be replaced constantly.
The researchers removed OECs from the lining of the dogs’ nose canals; 
these were then grown in laboratories for some weeks. The transplanted 
neural cells regenerated the nerve fibers across the dogs’ damaged spinal 
cord regions, thus giving them use of their back legs again and also 
helping them to coordinate movements with their front legs.
The study, by researchers from the U.K.’s Medical Research Council’s 
Regenerative Medicine Centre and Cambridge University’s Veterinary 
School, was the first in which the participants were not laboratory 
animals but had “real life” health problems and injuries.
Could the Treatment Be Used For Humans?
Scientists have previously thought that OECs might be useful in treating 
spinal cord injuries and are “cautiously optimistic” that they might help 
to treat human patients. Initial trials using OECs in humans have shown 
them to be safe.
Professor Robin Franklin, a regeneration biologist at the Wellcome Trust-
MRC Stem Cell Institute and co-author of the study, noted that “We’re 
confident that the technique might be able to restore at least a small 
amount of movement in human patients with spinal cord injuries but that’s 
a long way from saying they might be able to regain all lost function.” 
The new procedure might be used to treat those with damaged neural 
networks, along with drug treatments and bioengineering.
Prof Geoffrey Raisman, chair of Neural Regeneration at University College 
London, who discovered OECs in 1985, pointed out that the treatment was by 
no means a cure for spinal cord injuries in humans. As he said to the BBC, 
”This procedure has enabled an injured dog to step with its hind legs, but 
the much harder range of higher functions lost in spinal cord injury – 
hand function, bladder function, temperature regulation, for example – are 
yet more complicated and still a long 
way away.”
The new nerve connections that the OEC procedure made possible were for much 
shorter distances than would be needed to connect the brain to the spinal 
Still, for Jasper and the other dogs for whom the procedure was successful, 
regaining the ability to move around must have been — must be — a thrill and, 
as his owner tells the Telegraph, “utterly magic.” "
Science is wonderful!

Happy Thanksgiving

Nov 21 1600 or there abouts

What that morning might have looked like..

From My Family to You

Here is wishing you a happy day with family and friends, no fighting, no arguments.
The Biggest and best cooked Turkey, Ham, potatoes, dressing, gravy, and what ever you might like to eat.

Here's wishing you the very best for this year and all the others to come.

 The Common Stream

That's the stream that runs through every animal, including humans; 
 Every Plant even a single blade of grass,
Every Rock, from the fine grands of sand to the plates of bedrock that form the earth's crust.  

It connects all of us and makes us responsible to each other.

The Common Stream is the giver and sustainer of life.
It comes from the great creator, whether via a big bang or from the breath of life.

The footprint of man - what will we leave for others?

Happy Thanksgiving

Feed me I'm hungry

  The Animal Rescue Site focuses the power of the Internet on a specific need — providing food and vital care for some of the eight million unwanted animals given to shelters every year in the U.S., as well as animals in desperate need around the world. Over four million animals are put to death each year in the U.S. alone because they are abandoned and unwanted.
Each click on the purple "Click Here to Give — it's FREE!" button at The Animal Rescue Site provides food and care for a rescued animal in need. Funding for food and care is paid by site sponsors and distributed to animals in need by Rescue Bank, The Fund for Animals, the Petfinder Foundation, North Shore Animal League, International Fund for Animal Welfare,and other worthy animal rescue organizations supported by
In addition to clicking the purple "Click Here to Give - it's FREE" button, visitors can help more by shopping in The Animal Rescue Site store. With each item purchased, shoppers generate funds for the feeding and care of animals in shelters and sanctuaries.
