Just about animals ( no catchy title)

The beautiful lady is called Sophie. She's 14 and her best friend is a duck, whose name I didn't get. The duck curls up in Sophie's feet at night:)
And this baby lamby, will be saved from the evil fate of being someone's fucking dinner! When I walked past her she started to cry "maaaa' so I naturally had to give snuggles!

How come we can buy a pet or 'livestock'; a word I hate, because it implies that those beings those animals, are nothing more than things, objects, stock.

The concept of "breaking in" a horse is equally disturbing. As if they are here for our domain; oh wait, I forgot, we are the humans, and therefore have supreme reign,don't we?

Until we have abolished all pet stores, the word livestock, the concept of breaking in a horse, testing on animals of nay kind; and excusing it for scientific research, we will never evolve.

How can we, as a group, meaning humans, even begin to think we are improving, when we continue to look at animals a as unequal, as less than, as, most of the time 'things' that are there to please us, work for us, or feed us from their bodies.

Until we can all, collectively, recognize that animals are our teachers and guides and equals, we are going to continue to suffer for a very long time.


  1. We can judge the heart of a man by his treatment of animals.
    We as humans think that we are so much smarter or better than animals around us. We are most assuredly not. We are not even civilized. Humans live under a blood thirsty, brutalizing system. That's not civilization. We need to decide what life is worth, some of already remember, but most have forgotten.
    By The way, as to the picture of the sheep "Ewe are so cute"....ok I know it's a bad joke, but I couldn't resist. :)

  2. It's a pretty good joke! I make jokes like that too, and yeah we are very uncivilized, and what about the heart of a woman? :)

  3. We can judge the heart of man and women kind by their treatment of animals. You know I thought you might say that but it was too late to change it.
    Oh good you like puns too. The other day I was helping my sister load the back of her truck, which has a shell and she didn't close it right. When we turned the truck on a little light blinked "Gate is ajar" I pointed and said "That's funny, see, cause, your gate is not a "a jar" it's a gate!" She just rolled her eyes and giggled as I laughed haha

  4. That's pretty funny! That's something I would say, I love silly puns...
