Movie Review: Marley & Me

I love animals. I often say they’re better than humans. After all, they provide us with unconditional love and they don’t have all of the faults and issues that humans do. Especially now, when many of us are at home because of COVID, our pets provide us with a level of joy and love that is irreplaceable. I also believe that until you live with a pet, you don’t fully understand just how profound that connection can be. They truly are wonderful beings. Yesterday was Thanksgiving, and I hope everyone reading this had a fabulous holiday. Mine consisted of a bounty of food and watching two movies with my wife: The Break-Up and Marley & Me, both starring Jennifer Aniston. If you’ve never seen Marley & Me and don’t want me to spoil it, stop reading here. If not, let’s dive in.

Puppy Hit By Car: Please Donate To Save Her Life

I love animals so when I heard that a puppy, Buttercup, was found on the side of a road by a Balanced Buddies ResQ volunteer after suffering a head injury from a car, I knew I had to help. This adorable dog has been fighting for her life over the past 24 hours, and she’s making great progress. However, medical care for these kinds of injuries doesn’t come cheap, which is why I and 23 other people, so far, have donated money to help Buttercup recover from this terrible tragedy. If you’ve ever had a pet or simply love animals like I do, please read about Buttercup’s situation here and consider donating whatever you can afford to help her. Thank you.

Our New Kitten: Penny

first-photo-with-pennyOn Friday, November 25, Stephanie and I adopted a kitten and named her Penny. This was an impulse adoption. I had planned on bringing Stephanie to Morris Animal Refuge on her birthday, but we were walking by and she asked if we could go in to look at the kittens so I figured, why not?
