Winter Coat for a Dog


Poor Norton, he is just a little guy.  His fur is wiry and thin.

The nights are getting cold and Norton was shivering whenever he had to go outside to use the bathroom.

We decided Norton needed a nice winter coat.  Norton is not sure what to think about the coat.  He wasn’t cold, which is a plus.  However, he was walking funny at first.  Eventually, he made it out to the yard and did his doggy business.

I am sure he will adapt to the coat rather quickly.  Also, he looks so stinking cute.

Rush to Judgement

Have you ever noticed how quick our society is to rush to judgement?  All it takes is one picture or just one sentence and a person can become demonized in social media.

Why is an individual condemned by society, based on a minuscule amount of information?  Why is there no attempt to find out the background, the context, or the rest of the story?

Why do people feel so much anger and hatred toward these condemned individuals?  Why do they feel so much loathing for people they don’t even know?  Why do people post about their hate and send violent threats to strangers, without ever considering how their actions will effect the other person?

What does all this rush to judgement, demonization of strangers, angry rants, and threats of violence say about us as a society?  Also, why are we not talking about this issue more often?  Why don’t we try to do something about it?
