Submitted by “Ace“, the Twin Peaks Wild Stallion and personal friend of Grandma Greg’s I often warmly think about the “good old days” when hundreds of we wild ones roamed free… “It’s ‘Feel Good Sunday’ and I awoke, today,…

The Dodo-Heroes Series

We are going to turn the station knob, a bit, and pull it off Equines and over to Felines and Canines for today’s sharing of joviality and mirth. If you’re a horse person you are probably a well rounded, all-American animal person that gives home and shelter to other species such as dogs, cats, various birds and in our case, even fish.
It’s not enough that we have four (4) highly spirited and very amusing equine personalities that grace our homestead but we also have a Border Collie, German Shepherd and 3 cats that add entertainment and personality to our daily lives (the dogs are my crew, they must go everywhere that I go.)
Now take these funny personalities and do the thing that humans always do wrong, assign human tendencies to them and you can have a roaring good time, as proven by what the good folks at Freshpet did several years ago and I have been chuckling ever since.
BUT what I did not know was the what, who and why behind the story and that is where our Feel Good Sunday lands today, the good things that they were doing for dogs and cats in need.
Thanks to all of those out there who sacrifice so as to make life just a little better for domestic animals in need, there is a special place in Heaven for you.
Keep the Faith and let the laughter begin.
The Washington Post Magazine recently ran a misleading story on wild horses, focusing attention on anti-federalist ranchers in Nevada and the big money behind them.
