Why Blog?

After doing a lot of soul searching and questioning why I do what I do and thinking about quitting – on more than one occasion- I’ve decided to explain why I keep going.

First and foremost it’s not about me, it’s about sharing the stories of these amazing pets, the ones that need the extra love & care due to previous abuse or physical differences. It’s about raising awareness and taking a stand against BSL, declawing, debarking, tail docking and other barbaric practices that leave our furry, feathered and finned companions mutilated.

Getting the chance to share the stories of sadness, hope and triumph makes it worth while for me. There are times when I don’t feel like blogging, but then I look at videos, read stories and see pictures of these amazing pets overcoming challenges and I can’t not share them.

So that is why I blog. I don’t do it for the freebies from companies, the conferences or monetary reasons, I do it in the hopes that I can change one person’s mind about taking in a pet that needs extra love or a pit bull or volunteering at a shelter or taking in a sickly fur baby or helping someone take a stand against BSL, declawing, debarking, tail docking then I have done my job.

No amount of freebies or money could give me a better feeling.

So thanks for sticking around and let me know if there is a topic you would like to see covered on the blog, if I don’t know about it I will reach out to some of my pet loving friends and fellow bloggers to see if they would mind guest posting.


Thank you again.

  1. I absolutely <3 that you blog my friend. You bring so many anipals to the front that need to be applauded. They have fought through so much and some are still fighting to live. You've shown us that just like humans – just because an anipal is not 'perfect' doesn't mean they're not full of love to share unconditionally. Anipals are such a HUGE part of our lives. I couldn't imagine a world without that kind of love. I applaud YOU my friend for highlighting these stories. Stand tall and don't give up. We <3 you here at the Hotel Thompson. XOXO – Bacon's MOM

  2. I like that you give special pets a voice. And to learn more about special pets or pets with disabilities is great. Many thanks for your wonderful interviews. There are so much points what deserve that we ponder about :o)

  3. Thank you for continuing to blog – I just discovered you this year and have already learned alot about how animals often cope with being different much better than peple do. I’ve also learned about medical issues that I was not aware of. I appreciate you taking the time to find, write, and share your stories with us. THANK YOU!!

    1. Thank you very much for discovering me. There are so many wonderful blogs out there. I figured it was only fair to give the animals that don’t often have a voice a chance to speak and share their stories of love & life.

  4. Thank you for what you do for our pets/furbabies. You have helped us spread the word about special needs kitties/black kitties. your column did more for the cause than 5 years of posting on Rupurrt’s page could have ever done! All anyone has to do is read the column you did for Rupurrt, then follow on his page to see that he is as active and free spirited as any “normal” kitty could be. The same with all the other special needs kitties, CH kitties, blind kitties, you name it, they are out there. All of them, with their challenges are just as free spirited as any other -dogs too! Not many people would have known this without your help <3
    Thank you!!
