Such is life

Just about life as we know it

Special Visitor


On Friday afternoon around 3:15 it started thundering and I thought well this was no big deal and I can handle it. Mind you I don’t like storms especially when the thunder is real loud and lightning. I was keeping myself busy folding laundry and cleaning the bedroom. Then the storm really started getting intense and I felt the need to find a place somewhere in my home that I could feel safe away from windows. This was no ordinary thunderstorm this was an electrical storm. I grabbed my soda, cellphone and a cigarette and found my dark spot on the floor between the dining room and the bathroom. I closed the door to the dining room and opened the door to the bathroom. I just sat there in the dark listening to the electricity run through the sky and bang with the thunder.

I was extremely scared and I could feel the anxiety building. Well all of sudden the door to the bathroom started to close and there he was standing right in front of me was my boy Kudah. I could only see his eyes but that’s okay. He came to let me know that I was okay and he was there with me keeping me safe.

I wasn’t scared anymore and I really felt at peace.

Kudah was always there when we had these awful scary storms and we use to sit together and I would talk with him.

I am just so happy he came to visit even if it was just for a short while.

My surreal dream


The first week of July was such an awful week for my husband and I. We had to put Kudah down after 11 years of awesome companionship. He was very sick and was dying of cancer. He truly was the best child with paws and he is very dearly missed.

Saturday July 9, I remember going to bed early and laying there crying my eyes out and eventually falling asleep. I remember dreaming because it was surreal. I dreamt that Kudah was right before my eyes looking at me and he was kissing me and licking my face and I could feel his whiskers on my face and the softness of his fur. It appeared the dream only lasted a few minutes but I swear I could feel and see him and I know he was there. Just like when I shared my pillow with him every night he would kiss me good night. I remember being happy to see him but I don’t remember what I said to him and then I woke up suddenly bawling my eyes out. I wish I didn’t wake so soon because I would love to go back to the dream.

I remember my husband saying “What did you dream about?” I said, “Kudah was here with me in my dream and it was real”!

Dogs in Hot Cars


The warm weather has arrived and I know some people like taking their dogs out for a ride on a warm day and leave them in the car with the window cracked while you go shopping. This is Huge “No No”! Please leave your pet at home!

Do you know it just takes a minute on a 78-degree day, the temperature inside a parked car can soar to between 100  to 120 degrees in just minutes, and on a 90-degree day, the interior temperature can reach as high as 160 degrees in less than 10 minutes. 

Your pet can suffer brain damage or a heat stroke and die within 15 minutes or less.

Leaving a dog in a parked car with the windows cracked is a death trap for a dog because they overheat, sweat, excessive thirst, pant heavily, etc. Here is more information at this link http://www.peta.org/issues/companion-animals/dog-hot-car.aspx

Children with paws don’t deserve to die because the pet parent is stupid and cruel.

I take this matter very seriously and when I am out and about do shopping I am always on the look out for animals left in cars. I do not hesitate to call the police and report this very serious crime and yes this is a “Crime”. Pet owners can be charged with cruelty and receive a hefty fine.  The police will come without hesitating because they take it very seriously too. In the event you do make a call to the police, you have to stay on the scene until the matter has been resolved.

We all need to take action to protect the animals, so please do your part in helping to protect and prevent dogs being left in hot cars. Be pro active make the call if you need to and save a life! Here is a link for a flyer you can print out and keep in your car to hand out when necessary. http://www.aspca.org/Blog/~/media/files/pet-care/pets-in-hot-cars.pdf

I have flyers in my car and I am ready to start handing them out.

Be responsible, Be the voice for the animals, Be protective and Be pro active!
