This blog post is in praise of our animal friends, using both words and pictures.
"Every living creature on earth is special."
-Sue Monk Kidd
"Although other animals may be different than us, this does not make them less than us."
"Animals don't hate, and we're supposed to be better than them."
"Animals are the bridge between us and the beauty of all that is natural. They show us what's missing in our lives, and how to love ourselves more completely and unconditionally. They connect us back to who we are, and to the purpose of why we're here."

"Horses make the landscape look beautiful."
"A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than you love yourself."
"Dogs come when they are called, cats take a message and get back to you."
"Thousands of years ago, cats were worshipped as gods. Cats have never forgotten this."
"An animal's eyes have the power to speak a great language."

"A kitten is, in the animal world, what a rosebud is in the garden."
Please support your local animal shelter.
Thought to ponder: "There is no religion without love and people may talk as much as they like about their religion, but if it does not teach them to be good and kind to man and beast, it is all a sham."
Have a happy 4th of July!
Thanks for visiting! Until next Sunday, Becky
