Cute lucca, the Covid 19 and our pets.

Health – COVID 19 & Our Dogs & Cats

Health – Covid 19 and our pets.  I had the pleasure of speaking with Veterinarian Dr. Samantha Saunders about COVID 19. Dr. Saunders is PETA’S  Corona Virus Researcher and she also has her doctorate in Corona Virology.  I learned about the theory of how the COVID – 19 pandemics began. It seems to be linked to wet markets, bats and Pangolins. We spoke about whether or not our pets, including cats, dogs and companion animals can transfer the virus to us or to them. Watch the interview. It’s filled with great information.

Viruses: Humans, Animals & Karma

Viruses: Humans, Animals & Karma. The majority of us are consumed and scared about the spread of this new virus. Our lives, in the blink of an eye, have changed. Our routines have changed, we are hiding in our homes.  We no longer hug or kiss our friends and family. Every aspect of our life has changed.

I believe that every action has a reaction.  Karma exists and is real. The manner in which we have treated and continue to treat animals is despicable. It appears to be time for “payback.”  Our inhumane, unimaginable behavior is killing us, literally. If this isn’t a wake up call to stop killing animals so we can eat them or rob them of their skins,  then I don’t know what is. We can no longer hide behind the curtain of ignorance. We know the dark side of what goes on in factory farming. We also know the horrible outcome for animals and for humans.

Here are some words of encouragement and advice for you and your dog.

STORYTIME: Why We Love Dogs

A few months ago, I went shopping with a friend of mine. It was hot and muggy outside, a typical summer Miami heatwave. There was a lot of traffic that day and it took us longer than expected to arrive at the store. By the time we got there, we were hungry and cranky. It was a Saturday and we would have been much happier at the beach.
