Proud Mama - My Puppy is a Feminist!


I am so proud of my little dog!  We were having a quiet family evening at home a couple of nights ago. My pup, Piglet, was curled up in my lap being very sweet and peaceful.  I don't remember the show we were watching, but the scene took place in a busy office building. A man walked into the office, took over, motioned to the one woman in the room and said, "Grab us some coffee".

Piglet immediately jumped to her feet, looked at the television, and growled. As soon as the man walked out of the room she laid back down. But for the rest of the show every time he came on screen she jumped up and started growling at him.  I am so proud of her for looking out for a sister!  My girl may be just a pup, but it looks like I am raising her right!

So, my goal for the week is to take after my pup. If I see anyone being treated as 'less than', I am going to growl.  Um, I mean call attention to it.  If they don't pay attention, then I'll growl!

The story is available here.

Observing Memorial Day

On Memorial Day I always feel compelled to say something deep and profound in honor of those who have lost their lives in service to their country.  This year I decided that any words of mine would just not suffice. So instead, I am sharing a stanza of the haunting and beautiful “For The Fallen” by Robert Laurence Binyon.



They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.


Remembering the fallen
