Dogs Are Human's Best Friend
12-9-19, To put it simply, dogs are awesome. Whether they’re begging for your food, barking at their leash to convince you to take them on a walk, or simply greeting you when you get home, dogs do all of the little things that put smiles on faces around the world. Intelligence varies depending on the kind of breed you get, but overall, dogs are some of the most intuitive animals around. This is demonstrated by their multiple facial expressions (I especially like the one where they tilt their head and look at you quizzically), their ability to deviously hide toys in the strangest of places, and more. All they want to do is wake up, say hi to you, run around, play with their toys, eat, nap, eat again, nap again, say hi again, and sleep. Is that so bad?! Sure, we humans have certain responsibilities thanks to our “intelligence,” but it sure would be nice if we could all go through life like dogs; care free and completely sure of ourselves.

Morocco & Algeria: Argan Trees & Goats
The 'fruit' of the Argan tree is what the goats are after. It looks like a shriveled olive or like an acorn from an oak; annually- around June - it ripens. The resourceful goats often climb up to 30 feet above ground for their meal that's up to 84 percent of their diet. They eat and swallow the whole fruit, even though it's the pulp hiding under the thick peel that that covers a nut that they do not digest. This nut is 'harvested' by humans ...

Democrats fight for baby cats/animals right to life after voting to kill born-alive human babies
In one of the sickest ironies no one is talking about, Senate liberal Democrats picked this moment — 17 days after they voted to kill America's perfectly healthy human babies [infants] — to fight for the humane treatment of baby cats.
Apparently the Democrat strategists are out to lunch, or maybe the Left really is this shameless; interesting to wonder how some of these politicians standing on debate platforms in 2020 will tell the American people about protecting living things:
We chose cats over human kids.
Senator Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.), is the sponsor; here he is, arguing that America "must stop killing kittens!" When only three weeks ago, he stood in the U.S. Capitol agreeing with 43 other Democrats that human beings should be put down he said:
"The USDA's decision to slaughter kittens [2000/year?] after they are used in research is an archaic practice and horrific treatment, and we need to end it." What passion!
The United States of America slaughters hundreds of thousands human babies annually and now it's legal if they are outside the womb breathing. Makes me sick!

Eagle, "Walt" Rescued By Montana Deputy
2-22-19, Billings Gazette -- While patrolling in Cascade County Montana, Deputy Jay Groskreutz spotted an eagle on the side of the road. The eagle appeared to be snacking on a nearby deer carcass and for some unknown reason wasn't able to fly. Groskreutz got a blanket from his car and pinned the wings and picked it up putting it in the back of the patrol car. The eagle was taken by animal control and transferred to a dog kennel.
Groskreutz called the eagle "Walt" after the TV character Walt Longmire. Walt was malnourished and is being nursed at the Montana WILD Wildlife Rehabilitation Center in Helena. Rescuing and rehabilitating raptors isn't uncommon and the goal for all rescued birds is to release them back to the wild. More here
