Pet of the week, Snoopy

Snoopy is this week's pet. Animal Planet has a interesting quote about this breed, "Though they have a bad rap, these animals are eager to please, loving, and intelligent." What is the breed? Pit Bulls.

According to the Snoopy's caregiver, Snoopy is a very obedient pet. All pets without exception need, obedience training and supervision.  Always remember, dogs are still animals. 

Even gentle dogs may at times act out of character. Jackson, my sweet Golden Retriever actually snapped at a man and took a bite at his jacket.  What was weird... it was so unprovoked. 

 Pit Bulls are ready to be rescued at our local animal shelter. The Human Society provides extensive background information. 

Special thanks to Jo for taking and sharing this picture!

Community and solitude ... a balance

  “Let him who cannot be alone beware of community … Let him who is not in community beware of being alone… Each by itself has profound perils and pitfalls. One who wants fellowship without solitude plunges into the void of words and feelings, and the one who seeks solitude without fellowship perishes in the abyss of vanity, self-infatuation and despair.”Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Bonhoeffer's classic book, Life Together is important food for thought as Christians  seek to live a life together in the Word.

I savor time alone and with others.
 Earlier this evening, I joined other women as we discussed this
week's Bible Study.

Tasty Tuesday

A local restaurant has added Avocado Toast to their menu. It is not your average whole wheat breakfast toast. With the addition of an avocado topping, this toast is delicious.

Monday Musings

What you don't know can hurt you. That is why health screenings are vital because they often are able to detect abnormalities in their early stages.

Sometimes we have to be brave, call a doctor and make an appointment. After procrastinating for weeks, I decided to face my fears and schedule my colonoscopy. Screenings are important for individuals who are identified specific changes.  In addition, this screening is recommended for individuals who are over the age of fifty.

No matter the age, if someone we know notices changes in some area of their life, we can encourage them to see a doctor. 

It is better to know what is happening in our bodies.

Sunday Scripture

"I will love You, O LORD, my
The LORD is my rock and my 
fortress and my deliverer;
My God, my strength,
in whom I will trust;
My shield and the horn of my 
salvation, my stronghold.
I will call upon the LORD,
who is worthy to be praised;
So I shall be save from my 
Psalm 18: 1 -3

Pet of the week, Guapo...

Guess where I met this week's pet? In the neighborhood? Around town? At a local dog park? 
 No... do you give up?

It was in the hotel lobby at a Marriott hotel in Omaha, Nebraska. This hotel accommodates pets who are trained to give medical assistance to their companions.

Guapo is this week's pet. Guapo means handsome in Spanish. Special thanks to Guapo's owner who gave permission for me to take his picture. I am sorry I did not capture her beautiful face.
