We don’t give our dogs glutenous meals, but they can eat it in treats. These idiot-proof treats were a big hit with our three, but two of them will eat poop, so their tastes are not discerning. They no doubt would eat these with water substituted for stock. Because these have fruit in them, they need eating up fairly quickly.
- 1 banana
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 1/3 cup vegetable stock
- 1 cup flour
Drop by smallish spoonfuls onto a baking sheet that you’ve either not greased or greased for easier cleanup.
Bake 16-18 minutes at 350° F.
PETA does a lot of good to raise awareness of the barbaric way humans treat the powerless. But their philosophy that no animal should be captive on principal is warped to a degree that every animal once captive should be dead. Their shelter is merely a waiting room for the kill chamber.
Dragging a reporter to 3 locations where dogs are mistreated does not support their rationalization; every shelter and rescue in every town could do the same. I don’t accompany them on rescues, nor do I conduct behavioral assessments of their intake, but, statistically, their survival percentage does not correlate with other established rescues.
Animals we’ve created who can’t survive on their own or lack habitat that we’ve destroyed deserve our protection. Domesticated animals are by the nature of their engineered domestication born with our original sin, but that does not make their existence inherently miserable. A living happy dog that used to be sad is a greater moral victory than a dead sad dog never given the chance to know happiness, warmth, love, and care.
PETA people, have any of you ever created their own little domesticated animals in your own image? Should I raid an orphanage full of human animals, give them the needle, and end their sadness? You say death is the only antidote to abuse. Child abuse has made them screwed in the head and irreparable, hasn’t it? Besides, if I wanted to heal them, I’d need to devote time and money. I’d rather devote both to spectacle.
At least they don’t gas them.
New York Times: PETA Finds Itself on Receiving End of Others’ Anger
Beyond giddy to have gotten a peek-a-boo view of a male Cardinalis cardinalis (Northern Cardinal) on the cedar fence two mornings in a row here in Pittsburgh. I haven’t seen one since I moved, and I don’t know how many years it was before that I last did. I don’t know if I’m more unlucky than average, but for the amount of years I lived in their year-round territory, I’ve seen almost none of them. Like, twice before 1980 and not again.
Keep pet indoors. If you have a dog, tire her out before the fireworks begin, and leave her home. The only animals it’s okay to bring are small children.

Boy throws chicken around, and highly paid media professionals at MSN think it’s hi-larious.
Between this, throwing cats in the garbage, skinning rattlesnakes alive, and other outrages the producers have thought amusing in the past, it’s obvious that they need major sensitivity training.
