Jil's Blog- organised Dog Fighting

E-mail Print PDF

You may have read the article on the left of the home page about ' Inner City Dog Fighting'.? Of all the kinds of psychological abuse we subject animals to, this is the lowest of the low as far as I am concerned!!

What happens here is that men and woman who are unwilling to deal with their own anger and subsequent violence, select an innocent animal and project it on to the animal...In this case,even going as far as training the dog to live out their violence for them!! How cowardly and yet how immensly sad!!  Sad that Humans are so filled with Fear and Hate.

Heaven goes by favour.
If it went by merit, you would stay out and your dog would go in.
~ Mark Twain                                                                                       

We long for an affection altogether ignorant of our faults.
Heaven has accorded this to us in the
uncritical canine attachment.
~ George Eliot

To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon
is to be back in Eden,
where doing nothing was not boring - it was peace.
~ Milan Kundera

He cannot be a gentleman which loveth not a dog.
~ John Northbrooke

Well...There's a nice set of poetic expressions! Do we mean it? or do we just like the sound of our own voice?!!

Jil's Blog....The Pigeon,22nd May 2009

E-mail Print PDF

It appears that we are not finished with pigeons here. Today, I collected my french grandchild Alice from school...Nanette and Bertie, who both adore this little girl....accompanied me. On our return to my appartment we noticed a pigeon in the parking, who looked far from ' normal'. I tried to catch it but it was too nervous and always just eluded my grasp.Later... After returning Alice to her home, I again saw the same pigeon in the parking. It was by now late afternoon and it's posture was to say the least...disconsolate and unwell. The pigeon still didn't want any help in spite of a second attempt, so I left it there.

Violata PaxOnly a few days following the Saga of the Pigeons ( please see previous blog ), we saw erected in our Town... on the central roundabout....a huge DOVE.

The Bird is 15FT high , with a wounded face and some missing 'toes.' This Scultpure is the central theme of an exhibition called ' Violata Pax' by a well know local Artist. This is the latin for ' Wounded Peace' and represents in this context....' The Wounds of Humanity' !

Jil's Blog - Messages from Nanette

E-mail Print PDF

For the last year, I have been struggling with the notion that Nanette is passing information to me!! I simply couldn't get the logical side of my mind around it and in spite of my insistence on following Instincts and Intuition as being the best way forward. Damn it!!! This is the road I have trodden with Nanette herself, always finally relying on my own Intuition, which often lead in the opposite direction of the opinions of a  'professional trainer''.
