Weekend Lagniappe

Friendly Fill-Ins
   This is our first time to join McGuffy’s Reader & 15 and Meowing for their Friendly Fill-Ins blog hop. We are very excited to be a part of this fun hop.
1.  My idea of roughing it is French fries without ketchup.
2.  I never get sick of talking about my dogs.
3.  My youth was thankfully before Facebook!
4.  My “Golden Years” are going to be the best years of my life and they start now!

We are joining Da DB Boyz for Flower Friday by sharing our favorite blooms.

Pet and Women’s Safety (PAWS) Act
   Did you know there are currently no laws protecting the pets of domestic violence survivors? Women living in violent relationships sometimes stay because they are afraid to leave their pets behind. It is a sad reality that most shelters are not pet-friendly.
Facts
•About 1 million animals are abused each year because of domestic violence.
•Abusers of animals are 5 times as likely to harm humans.
•Up to 65% of domestic violence survivors don’t seek safety because they don’t want to leave their pets. Dr. Michael Roguski with Kaiitiaki Research and Evaluation
•52% of survivors in domestic violence shelters leave their pets behind with their batterers. National Coalition Against Domestic Violence
•Animal abuse is often the first visible sign of domestic violence in the home. RedRover.org
•13% of animal abuse involves domestic violence. RescueInk.org
By supporting the PAWS Act, you can play a part in protecting all survivors of domestic abuse, including pets. Please take a moment to sign the petition and contact your United States representatives to ask for their support.
   I’d like to thank Bayer for their help in this worthwhile project. You can follow them on Twitter at @Bayer4Pets for updates and please share this video to rally your friends and family.

Things Pet Parents Say

   As loving pet parents, we often speak to our dogs and cats just as we would anyone else. You probably don’t give it much thought but if we were overheard some people might think we are an odd group.

Here are a few things that can be overheard at our house.
“What is in your mouth?”
“Do you want out just so you can come back in?”
“Who’s the good boy?”
“What is in your mouth, now?”

Our Thoughts for Today

Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Manchester. It hurts my heart to know that such evil exists in the world today. We will continue to believe that there are more good people than bad but some days it is difficult. May God bless us all.
"If believing were simple, then this world wouldn't be in the mess that it is today." M. K. Clinton
