“our greatest glory is not in never failing but in rising every time we fall” – Confucius
It’s been a while since I blogged. I should apologize mostly to myself for this, I wanted to post everyday and I broke my 365 day sketchbook challenge. None of this means I have failed, unless I continue to not try. This I will be restarting tomorrow.
We should all remember not to be too hard on ourselves, no matter the failure. We live in a world that seems like it could never get harsher… then it does. My personal downfall is the inability to cope with the environmental, child and animal abuse. This time I did something more about it than sharing some petitions and posts to my friends: I adopted a shelter dog!
His new name is King Arthur. He was a victim of extreme abuse and witness to the massacre of his pack with a trigger happy @$$h0le who deserves nothing but the burning fires of hell for all eternity. Arthur, his mother and one other pup escaped and where found hiding in a ditch.
At this point, he is very timid and frightened of most males but is slowly coming around to a few close friends. He has anxiety attacks and when he heard fireworks about a week ago, he ran inside to hide and was hyperventilating and foaming at the mouth.
It’s going to be a long journey, but he has already made vast improvements. His confidence is growing and so is his trust in my closer circle of friends and family. He’s so gentle with small children it warms your heart.
I’ve ordered him and I a special necklace from the animal rescue site, If you love animals and want to check out their store or sign up for their emails, Please check it out and show your support. They raise money for a great cause and even tell you how many bowls of food you’ll be shouting our fury friends if you purchase an item.
