Another plea for help...



I'm not sure how many people look up this blog... probably not many. And among you, probably not many live in California, or even in the U.S. And among those who live in California, how many want a dog? Yeah... virtually no one.

Still, as useless as it might seem, I want to repost this plea for help from the Mutt Scouts, an awesome rescue group based in L.A. that has saved so many canine lives over the years, and keep going strong despite limited funds. They do more than anyone else I know, often get in way over their heads, trying to mend the traces left by human cruelty, neglect, abuse, and total lack of compassion. More than anything else, they need foster homes - people willing to foster a dog for a week, a month... until a good permanent home is found. Of course money is essential too, to help cover vet bills, food etc. But even little things like blankets, towels, toys, food donations can make a huge difference and contribute to the well-being and rehabilitation of those dogs.

Now I know, I know, there are millions of human beings dying every year at the hands of the same evils. I know, you work hard to get your money. I know, there are "worst" things to worry about in the world than homeless dogs. I apologize in advance for those of you who will be rubbed the wrong way... but knowing they are "just" animals doesn't make me feel less sad, angry and frustrated by their situation. And I want to help.


So... if anyone wants to help too, here is where to start:

Poseuse

Isis must have been a surly actress or model in a former life...

There's something about that studied pose...

The affected disinterest...

Or maybe she was a dictator.

Zuma Beach and Highway 23

Yesterday we went to Zuma Beach, past Malibu, to get some fresh air with two birthday pals...

Don't let the gorgeous blue-green water fool you... it's COLD! The pelicans don't seem to mind though (spot the one in the background? To watch them dive is impressive)

Quite a few birds pooping at random on unsuspecting humans...

This guy was showing off capoeira moves... makes for cool pictures.


Your typical sunset picture... with pudgy dolphins added.

View on the way back from Highway 23 - wish I could move into one of those isolated houses.

Hard to capture the hilltops from the car...

The Happy Company : birthday girl, birthday boy, hubby...

And meh!

Buddha Statue


Taken at the Hsi Lai Temple.

Mew!

That's a pretty typical Mew face... "when exactly are you going to start wiggling that feather again?"

Le Cat-ma... or Lacat

Non non, il ne s'agit pas d'un retour des Mondes Engloutis... juste que Chewie a parfois quelques difficultés à trouver son identité d'ado... chat ou lama? Gargouille peut-être? En tous cas elle garde très bien le placard!
