Allison Herds Sheep But Lamo Doesn’t

LAMO: Lamo likes to go for walks or ‘walkies’.

He loves wearing his collar and leash. The rest of his pack, Wallace, Judy and Poppy.

Lamo loves to swim and play around with the ducks.

Lamo is part of the family. 

JACK: Allison, in the video below, introduces six month old Jack. Jack’s friend is learning from Jessie to be a sheep dog.

Jack likes to shake hands and loves to see people travel by on the canal.

Aside from herding the sheep into the pen, he likes to go for walks and tries to beat Jessie in a game of fetch.

Lamo and Jack are Sheep.

Sheep are intelligent, sensitive, social and emotional animals. Some people think sheep are stupid due to their strong flocking instincts. It is not that they can’t think for themselves but rather they instinct to flock serves as protection from predators.

Sheep can remember the faces of other sheep in their flock and human faces. They can recognize human facial expressions.

In West Yorkshire flocks of sheep have developed the skill to cross cattle guards to reach the yummy food on the other side according to a BBC report by rolling on their backs.

Sheep are quite intelligent creatures and have more brainpower than people are willing to give them credit for. National Sheep Association.

In a study published in the journal of Public Library of  Science One, Professor Morton said, “They are quite intelligent animals –  they seem to be able to recognize people and even respond when you call their name.”
As a PETA advocate I suggest you read The Hidden Lives of Sheep. Sheep are often treated cruelly by farmers, skin carved without painkillers and more. Remember our motto: Be The Change. You Can Make A Difference.
And now more about Allison and Lamo.

Remember Me Thursday. Pet Adoption Awareness.

Remember Me Thursday – Pet Adoption Awareness Campaign.

I love my dogs, more than I can express. When I see shelter and stray animals, I want to help them all. They Deserve to be cared for and loved. If I see animal in harms way I will stop and help. Everyone one should. My Motto is :

Be The Change. You Can Make A Difference.

RMT Simple Square Shareable_DogRemember Me Thursday is a pet adoption awareness campaign. Start here and make a difference. Join others that have made a difference like Everything Rosie. Special needs animals especially are dependent on humans. I am and have been Guardian to many special needs dogs. My blog is dedicated to Sophie, a very special dog. I love them even more and their devotion is beyond measure.

Raise awareness. Pray for the lost and help make the present and future a better place.

The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated. The time is always right to do what is right.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.

What is “Remember Me Thursday – Light a Candle for a Pet”? From the website for the event:

“Animal lovers and organizations across the globe unite on the fourth Thursday of September to light a candle in remembrance of the millions of orphan pets who lost their lives without the benefit of a loving home and to shine a light on the millions of orphan pets still waiting for their forever homes.”
“Millions of shelter pets lose their lives each and every year. Join the awareness campaign – be a light for pets by promoting awareness about pet adoption. By remembering those we have lost, we can shine a light on the ones we can save.”

Helen Woodward Animal Center is uniting with animal-lovers and animal welfare organizations globally in a Remember Me Thursday candle-lighting ceremony. The candles, lit on the exact same day across the world, will honor the millions of pets who lost their lives over the past year without the benefit of a loving home.

Thank you to Speedy The Cheeky House Bunny and Texas A Cat Austin for bringing this event to my attention.

Remember Me Thursday
By Mike Arms
Remember the day that we first met?
You said you loved me and I was your pet.
Remember how you played with me,
And promised together we’d always be?
But later, when you moved away,
You decided we could no longer play.
You dropped me off at a strange new place,
Although I cried, and licked your face.
hands took me from your sight,
But no one was with me through the dark night.
I remember I stayed in a small place for days,
And no one had time for my playful ways.
I remember when they said it was time to go,
I remembered your face…and wished it would show.
I will leave this world — but, please, remember —
And light a candle, this Thursday in September.

Dogs are Angels. Say a Prayer.

65966_188809674576673_1718039703_n Today say a prayer for all animals. Pray humans act humanely.

Pray their Guardians love and care for them.

And be Thankful.

Today I am thankful for all the dogs that have blessed me.

I deeply miss and love the ones that are dead.

I love and cherish the companions “the little boogers” that share my life with me now.

Well time to go – P is barking and if my dog translator is accurate she is saying, “You have JB, A and MG in the chair with you.  That is 3.  I am 1.  Stop ignoring me and pick me up.  Now would be good.”

P is right.  She is one (1).

And every 1 animal is precious. Every animal deserves & requires love and care.

BE The CHANGE! You Can Make a Difference.
