Adoption is always best--millions of healthy animals are killed every year because they don't have homes--but the HSUS does have tips on finding reputable breeders for those who do choose to buy a pet.

George and I met Opie last June when we visited the Farm Sanctuary for Zoop. (It was during that trip that I took the picture of Opie below.) What a sweet boy! He was the face of the Farm Sanctuary's No Downer campaign, and no doubt his life made a difference.
Please think of making a donation to the Farm Sanctuary in Opie's honor.

What a deal--shop, get great stuff, help the animals!
April's charity of the month is the Rolling Dog Ranch Animal Sancutary. Most of the shelter's residents are disabled--the animals who would surely be euthanized without a home like Rolling dog. Currently, 80 animals live at the ranch.
Now you have the perfect excuse to buy new jewelry--it's for a good cause!

Although Congress voted in 2004 to expand the boundaries of the park, they have not allocated money for the land's purchase. Landowners near the park are losing patience--and money--so are looking for buyers. It's likely that the land around the park will be purchased by developers instead of the government.
It would be nice to think that preserving the land and the archaeological record on it are a priority for our nation.

All in all, though, the process is making me feel very despondent and unhappy. I'm incredibly stressed, and I'm having horrible headaches daily. I really can't wait until this is over.

Since George has been working so hard on the house, I've been trying to do more domestically. Admittedly, it's not my strong suit. I did make an excellent dinner. This is a simple dish: soy sauce, garlic powder, snap peas, and SmartMenu Chick'n Strips served with rice. Soooooooo yummy! The food looked so delicious in the pan, I had to capture it in a photo!
If you have not tried the Chick'n Strips, I wholeheartedly recommend them. I prefer them to the Morningstar Farm brand Meal Starters.
