On Betraying Your Family

Animal Person

I work with my mom and dad twenty other caring individuals to provide the best, most comfortable place for my family members, all 2000 of them. His family members total 2000. Yesterday, in the comments of An Affront to the Idea of Family , Brian wrote: I understand your concern for those cows that were beat by that man and the unfortunate death of all the cows that died in the snow storm. As a dairy farmer I even had a hard time reading that.

Hamsters Celebrate 70 Years in the US

Critter News

Sadly, though, some 200,000 hamsters were used for research in the United States in 2000, third behind rats and mice. Interesting article. Prior to the 1930s, hamsters were pretty much in the wild. Prior to the 1970s, virtually all were descended from one breeding pair. Now, one million hamsters are kept as pets, an increase of 41 percent since 2001. This includes the two sitting on the shelf in our house!)

Etched In My Heart

4 The Love Of Animals

Another thing we love about Etched In My Heart is that they donate part of their proceeds to The PetSave Foundation, a non-profit organization founded by Bona Tucker in June 2000 as a rescue, rehabilitation, and adoption resource for domestic rabbits, cats and dogs. Etched In My Heart offers pet lovers a wide variety of personalized gifts. They were nice enough to send us personalized frames for our dog and bird. Not only are they unique, but the frames are high quality too.

Lion Population Decreasing in Kenya

Critter News

Kenya's lion population has dropped from an estimated 2,749 in 2002 to 2,280 in 2004 and probably just 2000 individuals in 2009. I've been reading a lot about threatened elephants and primate populations in Africa and wondered about lions. One rarely hears about how they are doing. But, unfortunately, they are in trouble too. This article talks about the specific situation in Kenya. The storyline is all too familiar.

Critter News

In 2000, around 1,000 breeding pairs were known, but by 2009, the number had plummeted to just 120-220 pairs, a decline of 88%. Really sad.

Spoon-billed Sandpipers nest only in the far north-east of Russia.

The fee for a mantra when I learned was $2500 and it is now $2000. You get a lot of education and coaching for that $2000, but you can learn mindfulness meditation or various Buddhist meditation techniques, free of charge, any day of the week from either your home via the Internet, or at a free class. I've been using Transcendental Meditation (TM) as my meditation technique for over a decade.

Dogtown Episode 2

Critter News

And here's a huge article from the Psychiatric Times in 2000. Another episode of Dogtown done! This episode featured three young dogs: Johnny, the golden retriever that was considered too dumb to train; "Baxt" (I think) a puppy with a neurological problem; and Tuffy, the dog attacked and left for dead by other dogs. Baxt and Tuffy were victims of a hoarder. The show's narrator mentioned that hoarders often start off as trying to save animals and then just get overwhelmed.
