One thing that has slapped me across the face during this COVID-19 pandemic is that there are a slew of people who assume too much and have never been taught how to properly relate to others.

A Quiet Dog’s Wrath

My oldest, biggest dog is extremely laid back. The two young dogs will mess with him, and it takes a lot for him to even growl, much less chase one away. My youngest, smallest dog is a bully. Hope will steal food, growl at anybody invading her space, & even try to boss everybody around. […]

I understand that the media thinks they need to sensationalize everything to sell papers, but everything is not about politics and people are honestly more concerned about their family than the evils of Washington DC. I had the […]
