Following Up Friday gives me a chance to catch you up on a few previous posts:
12.27.12 Two Dogs At Every School, got a lot of interesting comments. People were mostly concerned about the safety of the dogs. Yes I understand that a crazy person with a gun could shoot one of the dogs on entrance to the school, but isn’t that the point. Better to sacrafic one life for the lives of many (as Victoria Soto did for her students)? I did not get as much support around the idea as I expected. People were worried about allergies and the liability, and all of them are fair concerns. I guess it is just better to give every teacher a gun and make them focus on protecting their class instead of teaching our children (ok, I am being sarcastic here). The truth is, guns are not the problem, mental health is, so maybe we are protecting the wrong thing. I am disheartened, but will keep thinking on this one.
12.29.12 The Catnip-apillars come in a 3 pack from PetSmart. They were nothing fancy but all the animals are really enjoying them (Sofie Bear loves to suck and nibble on cat toys (OK that is weird now that I write it.)
12.30.12 I never really thought about how many animals never will experience snow. But then, my zoo won’t experience desert, though I guess they could experience sand if I took them to the beach. I love the diversity of followers and the view from their locations. Makes me realize how incredibly different our environments are and how wonderful a medium the internet is to be able to virtually experience another climate.
1.1.13 A New Year and new experiences await. I forget to mention my new friend Pawsitively Pets, who was my buddy in the Christmas Blog Exchange. She has a wonderful and informative site, so go by and tell Ann Paws that DogDaz sent you.
