Profound and Eloquent

We have two brand new volunteers out here, Juli and Glenn. yeay! Glenn shared his favorite animal quote that I want to share with you: "The animal shall not be measured by man. In a world order and more complete than ours, they move finished and complete, gifted with extension of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear. They are not brethren; they are not underlings; they are other nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendor and travail of the earth." The author is Henry Beston,a writer/naturalist. The quote is from one of his works "The Outermost House", written in the 1920s.

Snoopy buns!

My little Nemo loves his mom's purse. Anytime he finds it on the floor he cant resist. He once had an unfortunate incident while purse snooping, my cell phone rang! He ran faster than I have ever seen and stayed under the bed for hours. It didn't deter him however, he still loves to snoop.
