Hello Tadpoles,I am trying to catch up with my manicure pictures and posts. I completed another Awareness manicure for October 4th.
World Animal Day started in Florence, Italy in 1931 at a convention of ecologists. On this day, animal life in all its forms is celebrated, and special events are planned in locations all over the globe. The 4th of October was originally chosen for World Animal Day because it is the feast day of Francis of Assisi, a nature lover and patron saint of animals and the environment. Today, World Animal Day is observed by animal-lovers of all beliefs, nationalities and backgrounds.
I love animals. I live on 40 acres in the country. People are always dropping dogs off on our land. I guess that they see that we have 2 dogs (Red and Albert) that run freely on the land. My parents have 2 dogs that live with them inside the house (Hunter and Sasha). We have 2 other dogs (Fuzzy and Duke) that live in my parents backyard in a fence so that they are protected from other dogs. They are have injuries to their back legs and can not protect themselves. My husband and I have 1 dog/son that lives with us. Here is his name, hold on....Flash Gordon Martin-Duncan. He has some other names that we call him that he answers to. But these are his formal ones. We also have 2 cats/son/daughter (Socks and Shadow). I had 2 other cats that have passed away. We also had two other dogs that were members of our family that had a big impact on our family (PeeWee and Bear). Ok, I know dang.
