Philippines. Dogs for Adoption. Philippine Animal Welfare Society.

For those of you in the Philippines, here are three dogs available for adoption. They are currently with the Philippine Animal Welfare Society , and they are ready to go. You can contact them by clicking on the link provided above. The dog with brindled fur is Hiyas. She's a survivor from the dog meat trade, rescued from the jaws of death. I feel that her sweetness just reaches out to you through the photo. The second dog is Jackie. She was rescued from a parking lot with almost no fur on her at the time, exposed to sun and rain and no food. A tough dog, indeed. People are heartless, aren't they? The third one is Missy. She came from a home, but domestic problems forced her out of it. Doesn't that sound very familiar? There are so many scenarios wherein an animal is the ultimate victim. Pick up the phone and schedule a meeting. You can also email PAWS at These dogs need a loving, forever home. Keep in mind that there are many more dogs at PAWS who could be your partner for life.

Responsible pet ownership involves taking your pet to the vet for regular checkups and for help when they are ill. An animal shelter is not the answer to a pet's illness. Take your pet to the vet as soon as possible. You've wasted a whole month. Your dog needs medical attention from a vet. An animal shelter provides a refuge to abused animals, but the welfare of a pet lies squarely on the human. Take your dog to the vet now.

i think that people nowadays should really be aware of the advantages of animals.and i would like it if people would think before they buy a pet whether they can care for it or not,so that we can create an animal friendly environment starting right now.

Northern New Jersey. Dog for Adoption. Simba. Pomeranian.

Here's a dog I want you to meet, Simba. He's an energetic little fellow who literally leaps in joy when it's time for a walk. I mean, Simba leaps vertically like he's on a pogo stick. He's very amusing. Simba was rescued from a pound down in West Virginia, and he's now with us in northern New Jersey. I love small dogs, and he's become my most recent favorite. Simba certainly qualifies as a lap dog. Last Sunday, after walking him, we sat in our patio area at the shelter and I gave him tummy rubs and back massages while he laid like a pillow on my lap. I've been told that Simba doesn't like having a collar put around his neck, and so he wears a harness instead. Interestingly, Simba is microchipped. So, he belonged to someone who cared for him. He's a good boy and only two years old. All predict that Simba will get adopted quickly, like most toy dogs do.

Poem. Captivity, Longing. Cruelty. Misery. Free the Animals.

Thumbing through some Robert Frost poems, I was led to this one by Maya Angelou . I don't know if Frost ever had an influence on Angelou, but certainly any American poet living today would be familiar with Frost's work. Frost and Whitman are my favorite poets, and the romantic poets ( Keats, Byron, and Shelley ) I can't bear. I find their work dense, abstruse and impenetrable. It's just a matter of taste and connectivity. I am no expert on verse, but I will accept the opinion of those who are. They warn us that Frost's poetry is deceivingly simple. If we were to try our hand at it, to put complicated emotions into simple verse, we would be tied up in knots.

Anyway, Angelou's poem below, Caged Bird, touches on the plaintive cries, the longing for better things, that captive individuals must go through. You can apply the core meaning or sentiment of this poem to any situation involving imprisonment or captivity, human or animal. Think of the dog in a dank, dark ba…

Hiking. Protection Against Snake Bites. Gaiters.

You might wonder what on Earth are these? They are called, "gaiters," and fashion has nothing to do with them. Gaiters act like shin guards against briars and other thorny plants, worn by those who work outdoors like forestry rangers, ranchers, and farmers. Gaiters come in different styles and material, but they normally protect the ankles up to the knees.

This pair provides protection against snake bites. New material called SuperFabric makes protection possible without putting on the usual thick, cumbersome gaiters with polycarbonate sheets embedded in them. This pair is flexible and light, made by Whitewater. I got this pair from

I believe that such protection is necessary for hikers considering that rattlesnakes, copperheads, and cottonmouths are not rare along the trails, and they can be difficult to spot on the ground. I am willing to accept the prevailing theory that snakes, like most wild animals, will avoid hikers if given enough tim…
