Animal talk

Between traveling to and fro a lot this summer, I have been neglecting this a lot, which is something I do NOT want to do. I really do love this. And most importantly, I love animals. There's nothing more beautiful or pure than an animal... So I was thinking, if animals could speak, what would they say?

It's good to be back...

I was in Chicago for most of May, disconnected from the internet and everything. And while it's good to be back, I am extremely saddened by the disaster at the Golf. It broke my heart to see all types of animals struggling to free themselves from the oil wrapping their bodies, or even worse-DEAD.
It's hard to imagine that a multi-million dollar company as BP has not received various solutions to end this tragedy (maybe if it was in their coasts, it'd be a different story). Perhaps, they don't want to stop this, or perhaps it is too costly, but as frustration builds and BP refuses to step into action, there are animals being affected by this ongoing oil spill. Once again, it is the most innocent, who are suffering the most..

On animal overpopulation...

Spaying or neutering plays an important part in controlling animal overpopulation. As a consequence there will be less euthanization of animals. In a practical sense, this will also cost the taxpayers less money. It costs money to capture, impound and later put these animals to sleep; this costs billions of dollars each year, according to the American Veterinary Medical Association.
As an animal lover, spaying/neutering animals shows responsibility in the owner’s part. Why run the risk of having an animal in heat roam the streets and getting hit by a car or having an accident, or contracting diseases?
Spaying or neutering also reduces the risk of certain types of cancers in some animals, the number of unwanted offspring, eliminates heat cycles for females and aggressive behavior in males. According to Spay USA (a great source for spay/neuter info), dogs and cats live longer lives after the procedure, which in the end is what any loving owner wants!

Animals do rock indeed!

I just wanted to mention that people can learn a lot from animals; animals don't judge, they love unconditionally, only kill/harm to eat or as defense, and as ironic as it is, some show the traits of "humanity" better than actual human beings. All this knowledge from watching such a small little dog...
