#WATWB Aiding Disabled Pets

Because I once or twice contributed to a Go Fund Me campaign, I occasionally get announcements of success stories. This is one of them that fits nicely within the monthly WATWB post. Gunnar was hit by a truck on February 16th of 2014. . . On that cold winter day in a rural Wisconsin vet […]

The Tree

Observations make the scene. Especially when the story is not coming. We remark on this one often enough. So today it is a snippet. Transfixed. Obsessed somewhat we think.

The Quiet Deer

Living with a dog
