To me “eyes are the mirror ….”.      There is beauty in all living beings.

As a “pet parent” for over 40 years, I know that pets bring both joy and sorrow to our lives but the good times outweigh the times of sadness.   Animals (domesticated and wild) have individual … and unique … personalities.    I believe they speak volumes through their eyes — excitement, happiness, fear and pain — so many emotions.   Of course, they also communicate through their body language.   To me it’s interesting — and relaxing — to simply sit back and quietly observe for awhile.  We can learn so much.

Animals — so many shapes, sizes, colors, textures, movement and vocalization.   Have you ever wondered how they perceive our world?

Since 1972 six of our 4-legged buddies have died due to sickness or old age.  The youngest was only 7 … the eldest was almost 17.   Each death has claimed a piece of my heart but there’s always room for one more.    Skillful, knowledgeable, compassionate veterinarians are a blessing …  especially in times of need.   Dr. Kumar and his tech, “Kat” provide excellent care.    If you want to learn more about them, please click here:
