“The eyes of the Tiger are the brightest of any animal on earth
At dusk they blaze back the ambient light, with awe inspiring intensity
It would be a tragedy ...and a terrible dereliction of duty
If we allowed that magical fire to burn out.” -Arjan Singh
My Favorite Flower: Lilacs
I love Fairies!

For many years, I sat 'out back sleeping there on the ground,
I always went to bed hungry cause they forgot I was even around .
Maybe I got to big, or maybe I barked a lot,
maybe I didn't sit or lay or jumped up when I should have not .
If only they'd taken some time and taught me a thing or two I would have done 'bout anything, anything they asked me to do.
Instead, here I am 'out back 'this mud hole I now call my home, I spend my days watching and yearning.
Wishing for a moment to roam as the seasons, come and go.
The days, they turn to years.
I try hard not to cry a lot.
All I want is somebody near sometimes,
Someone would come near me, wrinkle their nose and pass on by,
as I sit in my mud hole I sit here and just wonder why.
Then one day I see youYou came so close and near I sat up like a good boy As I tried to show no fear.
You gave me a treat, took it away. You played with my toes and ears
You made me so very happy, More attention then I'd know in years,
That's when I saw it, that look in your eyes, and I hung my head so low
that anger, as always, it came again, as I waited for the next blow.
That grim look on your face, I'd seen it beforeIt says you will just pass me by,of course, who could blame you?
Look at me, who would want I?
Who wants a dog all full of mud,long nails and a swollen belly?
Who wants a dog with flea bit ears, with matted fur, so rough and smelly Again I give up my dream.
Accept my life long fate. I look up at your anger, A face so full of hate Imagine my shock, my awe, and wonder,as I hear you say he's fine.
I lift my head so high in the air as you reached for that four foot line .
You see I lived forever on the end of a four foot chain, and for the price of a few cigarettes, you started to erase the pain (I can forget years of pain).
You took me to your car, I climbed in next to you, It was then I saw the tears and that was something new I knew you were so sad, As I licked your gentle face.
You said no more loneliness or hunger.
You promised me a better place It was at that moment my Angel,
The anger that filled you so, I realized wasn't toward me, but for me.
It was enough to give me some hope.
You brought me home and cleaned me up,
You gave me some food and toys.
You gave me all I wanted Including a new found joy .
Then one day there came another Angel such as you .
You told him of my story.
He nodded like it wasn't new.
You looked at me, tears filled your eyes, as you kissed scruffy face"Don't you worry, they'll take good care of you...."far away from that awful place" .
Off I went, so far away.
Now I have my first real home.
All those years of dreams came true.
Never again yearning to roam.
You see I have a good life.
I get to jump and play because of you, my Angels dear.
I have forgotten there was any other way.

I STAND WITH THE TIGER
I stand with the Tiger as they make their last stand.
I stand with the tiger against the ravage of Man.
I stand with the animals pushed to the wall.
The Rhino, the Panda, I stand with them all.
I stand with the great Apes. The gorilla's my kin,
and I wouldn't want to live in a world they're not in.
I stand with the wolf, the she wolf and cub
against steel jawed traps that would leave them a nub.
I stand with the Whale. I stand and I weep
over all of their blood that was shed in the deep.
I stand with the elephant, so noble and bold,
who are killed for their tusks that are hacked off and sold.
I stand with the animals. I love one and all,
and I think to myself, surely this is Man's fall.
We're burning the Garden. We're cutting her trees.
I stand and I beg, I plead, people STOP, PLEASE!
Yet my heart knows that this won't be enough.
If we stand with the Tiger, we'll have to get tough.
For this is our last stand. We're all on the brink.
We have to just stop it, and take time to think.
We must face the truth that we're killing our self.
We must start to value our planet's true wealth.
It's not in the gold that is hid in her soil,
and it's not in the steel, and it's not in the oil.
It's not in the stuff that these things will build.
For what good is it all after everything's killed?
What joy in a world if we're in it alone,
with her beauty destroyed, and our hearts turned to stone?
Oh we might still live on, but surely not well,
for we will have turned our fair Garden to Hell.
I Stand with the Tiger

Life is too short to wake up with regrets.
So love the people who treat you right.
Forget about the ones who don't.
Believe everything happens for a reason.. If you
get a second chance, grab it with both hands. If it
changes your life, let it. Nobody said life would be easy,
they just promised it would be worth it.
My Best Friend who I have known for almost 8 years has passed away....I would like to honor her life by telling you all a little bit about her...
Carrie loved animals...she had a cat named "Angel" who recently had to be put to sleep and a dog named "Bear" who will miss her very much. Carrie was an exceptional friend, she had a heart of gold! Her favorite animal was the Wolf... She shared my love for thunderstorms....and going through puddles in my Jeep... She was a very special person. She was always there if I needed her and she always knew how to cheer me up! She had a great sense of humor, she could always make me laugh and smile.
I am devastated by her passing and she will be missed very much..!!!!!! I am sad that I will never see her smile or hear her laugh again.... all I have now are the memories, which I will cherish forever!!!!
GONE BUT NEVER FORGOTTEN!!!
BEST FRIENDS FOREVER
REST IN PEACE MY SWEET SWEET FRIEND!

|What/who changed my life and why
||Jane Goodall and Steve Irwin....Steve was a true warrior for the animals and he made me see that every single creature on this planet was not to be feared, but loved instead. I have to admit though I fear Spiders even still, but less so now...and I can now appreciate their beauty and purpose.
My Best Friend Carrie...She was a great friend and an awesome lady who could always make me laugh no matter what...she was always there for me when I needed her!!!! She changed my life in many ways and could always cheer me up if I was feeling sad. I miss her so much! I would give anything right now to see her smile or hear her laugh! Sadly, all I have now are the memories and I will cherish them always.
Rest in Peace my sweet sweet friend....You may be gone, but you will never be forgotten!
May you finally be at PEACE and free from pain.
BEST FRIENDS FOREVER.....
