When I Think of Tibet

As the weeks go by and tensions and violence escalate in Tibet, it makes me more and more anxious. Tibet is a beautiful, mysterious country. I visited many years ago, and although there were always problems (I remember one incident when my travel party was delayed for several hours because of public executions!!) it was much calmer than it is now.

PETA Passion

Wow this is very interesting! People are super passionate about PETA! They really love them or they really hate them! I guess I would say myself, I don’t always agree with all their tactics, but hell, I just love animals. I can’t help it. I love them. All animals. But mostly dogs, because they are the most accessible to me. I am a Read More

Coyote

I hike with my two young girl dogs early in the morning, mostly because they expect it, and they both sit on my chest like the winged incubus from “Gothic” until I cannot breathe. A little like waterboarding, this is dogboarding, but it is not torture for information, it is gentle persuasion in order to get a walk. I am an early riser anyway, and Read More

Ralph

My first true boyfriend is my beautiful manchild German Shepherd mix Ralph, pronounced “Rayfe” like the actor Ralph Fiennes. I got Ralph from the West Valley animal shelter and it was right when “The English Patient” came out. Ralph was such an injured baby. He had a bad wound on his head from unknown causes, and also the people at the shelter said that he Read More

My Family

The newest victims of the nation’s foreclosure crisis are pets, which is extremely distressing to me. I love animals. I have 3 dogs myself – I actually have a kennel license in order to do so. I love them so much I couldn’t imagine my life without them. They are the first thing I think of when I wake up, Read More

Gudrun’s Aura

This weekend we went to the pagan pride day celebration in Whittier and Gudrun and I got an aura photo taken:

“The interpretation of the particular colors of Gudrun’s aura says that she “wishes to achieve inner peace and harmony in the world,” has and will “will work extremely hard using all (her) resources to fight for a worthwhile cause.””

Gudrun Movie

My darling husband made this movie for my birthday. It is the best gift ever:

Pom Chis are Chihuahua Pomeranian mixes…..

Dog Whores

I like wet dog noses resting on my skin, and feeling the fine, downy soft hairs of a sweet muzzle underneath. I love dogs, mostly all dogs. Possibly one or two I have met in my lifetime rubbed me the wrong way, but of the many thousands I have petted and cuddled, that isn’t too bad.

When I am away from home, I put pillows on Read More
