changing the world - one small step at a time...

you know, as a palestinian sympathiser / supporter I never thought I’d have reason to say “go israel”!!!! unfortunately for the palestinian people it’s not in relation to their struggle or plight – but fortunately for animals israel may be proving itself to be a leading voice against the brutal fur trade

according to unleashed australiaisrael is on the verge of becoming the first country to completely ban fur. on 2nd september israel will vote on whether to ban the production, import and export of fur.”

sickeningly the 'price of fashion' for humans is paid by non-human animals - did you know millions of minks, raccoons, foxes, rabbits, dogs, cats and other animals are skinned alive, anally electrocuted, poisoned, beaten to death or drowned for their fur?!

how many animals are horrifically slain for one fur coat?


disturbing isn't it!!! why not add your voice and urge israel to 'help make fur history'?  change has to start somewhere - and hopefully spread rapidly...

concerned people do have a voice by way of petitions and protests - as evidenced in Catalonia on 28th July, when it became the first major region in mainland Spain to ban bullfighting!!!! yay for caring, compassionate people!!!!

Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” ... Margaret Mead

on an up note for me and my weekend... i had the 'malmsbury mob' come to visit so i got to see my wee loudie-dude, irene and the rest of the gang... we walked, talked, ate and mellowed out with a relaxing smoke... it's always a lovely time when the 'country clan' comes down...


the following photo shows me, louie (it's a pity you can't see the detail in his little black face - it's very expressive) and the grey boy is old man lucky... mind you, there was a bit of a power struggle / territorial dispute going on - my lap was the desired prize and both were vying for more of it - looks like louie had the 'upper paw' when the photo was taken - he's spread out more!!!!




alas, that's it for now - it's time to do some 'domestics'...

hmm, now is that large phallic-looking object in he right fore-ground? and don't tell me it's not phallic looking either! the dogs look well happy!

oooh... i had to upload the more complete photo so you could at least tell it was a bong - which, to me, is not phallic, but the means to enjoy the wonderous weed - it certainly doesn't feel phallic to hold!!!

I can't believe Israel is contemplating this?! What about those great big furry hats the menfolk wear? Does make you wonder when they consider the fate of small furry animals as being more important than that of the Palestinians.

sad for palestinians yes - but i can't help but wondering "if humans can't treat their own well what hope for animals?" - as a very passionate animal rights person they're equal to humans, and have suffered for way too long for human benefit - on animals behalf 'we'll' even accept israel's support!!! 'humanity' has a lot to answer to (or should that be for?)
