The Animal Lover's Guide to Changing the World Review and Giveaway

Regular readers know that helping animals is important to me and pretty much the mission of this blog. I have always loved animals and have been rescuing dogs, cats, mice, snakes, birds, etc., ever since I can remember. Growing up I spent several summers on farms and befriended pigs, goats, chickens and cows - including a cow I named Miss Lillian who remains one of my favorite animal friends of all time. 

So, when Stephanie Feldstein asked if I would like to review her new book The Animal Lover’s Guide To Changing The World, Practical Advice and Everyday Actions for a More Sustainable, Humane, and Compassionate Planet, it was kind of a no brainer for me – and I immediately said yes!

Not So Happy Update On LaCroix

Sometimes things don’t work out. And no matter how hard we work or hope, there’s heartbreak. Real life is not a fairytale; it’s complicated, confusing, and often painful. There are happy moments, but happy endings are rare and ever elusive.

A few weeks ago I shared the story of LaCroix, a three-month-old Cattle dog puppy born with spina bifida. LaCroix was rescued with several other dogs from a hoarding situation. When I met him he was an adorable bundle of joy with a zest for life and lots of puppy sparkle in his gorgeous blue eyes. He didn’t stay still for long; he loved to play, learn new things, and make people smile.

But sadly, things change and sometimes quickly. 

LaCroix, a puppy born with spina bifida lived life to the fullest; his life was brief but filled with love, adventure, and affection
