Polo Horses Die in Florida

This morning I overheard on NPR radio that more than 20 Venezuelan horses died in Florida while -preparing for a competition today. `

The story is very sad and there are a lot questions of potential animal abuse and/or poisoning of the horses, as all of the horses were owned by the same team and were held in the same trailers.

The full text article can be found of -

While I'm not a major supporter of horses being used for sport, I have ridden them myself and understand how great and intelligent these "animals" are - They're like big giant dogs in my book. I've seen them cuddle their faces up to owners and show affection on many occasions.

If this was a poisoning for the sake of winning or pure abuse of the animals themselves by the owners through injection of steroids or a competing team trying to get a one up - investigators need to figure it out.

The atrocities cannot be kept in the dark and I hope to see some justice as this case is investigated.

Let me know your thought and if you know any more about the case.

Touching Story of a Lion -

I saw this story some time ago and thought I'd share it will my readers.

It's not exactly the kinds of story I promote - but this just shows how smart animals are and how we need to treat them all with respect.

Wolf Killed in Northwest Washington

Has anyone seen this story?

It's not directly related to our family pets, but these wolves are direct descendants of mans best friend. It just makes me sad to see these kinds of things happening to wolves as they try to reclaim the small portion of the land they once roamed.

I hope they do whats necessary to keep these kinds of things from happening again.

Fighting for a Cause

Hello fellow pet lovers, this is my first post on my pet blog that I hope to use to promote and help pets in need.

Over the next few days, I'll be adding more articles and stories based on my experience rescuing dogs and raising dogs of my own.

It doesn't have to be all about pet rescue, but I'd like to hear your pet stories and maybe I'll feature your story on the site in the near future.

Looking forward to hearing stories and having you read mine as well!
