An eagle can fly within an inch of the ground. But, an eagle can never be its full best spending its entire life that close to the ground...
She made her comment in a Facebook threads several days ago ...
Time permitting, I'll try to find it to provide a bit more context.
Vincent, I don't see the message you reference about putting a collar on a dog. How does that person propose to keep a dog safe? A harness instead of a collar? No restraint at all? Then how does a dog deal with a man-made world with many dangers for those that cannot understand them? Or am I guessing wrong with regard to what she wrote?Interestingly, for supposed animal abuse, our dogs sure are anxious to get theirs on in the hope that they're going for a ride or a walk.
There's a lot more to having a dog than just putting a collar on it. We don't want them just to collar them and sit them in a corner. There are countless celebratory events, hugs, communications, moments of joint silence, moments of play and sheer silliness ... together ... and also times of mourning ... should they pass...
(My answer to the woman who suggested that putting a collar on a dog could be considered animal abuse...)
A cat named Tootie just reminded me of an unbelievably beautiful little Persian cat I knew named Cody. I attempted to memorialize what I saw in that little guy in a piece I wrote about him entitled "Lamentations And Celebrations For Cody: Life Lessons From A Cat" http://brandergy.com/group/animalese/forum/topics/lamentations-and-... #Animalese
By the way: THIS is a really cool picture of the meerkats :-) https://www.facebook.com/theresa.kasel/posts/10152549230729019
Vincent -- I often am able to get some good photos and occasionally a video. There are some other volunteers that are much better photographers than me.
Oh, and I forgot that I'm also trained on what the Zoo calls Panda Trek. I know about the giant pandas -- but I'm actually working and focusing on the animals you see before pandas -- red pandas, takins and Mang Mountain vipers, the coolest green snake in the world. (The zoo has an employee that works in the actual panda exhibit.)
WOW! WOW! WOW, Theresa!! I had no idea about that WONDERFUL aspect of your background!
Do you have videos or other items about your interpretive work with animals?
(And I WISH that I could get to San Diego before the end of 2014! :-))
I just wanted to pop in and tell you why I joined the group -- I love animals! (HA!)
Actually, my main reason is because I'm an interpretive volunteer at both the San Diego Zoo and San Diego Zoo Safari Park. I've had training to do interpretive work with orangutans, gorillas (Western Lowland), Galapagos tortoises, polar bears, elephants, condors, tigers, koalas and I'm doing training on lions later this month.
If you are going to be in the San Diego area and want some "insider tips" for visiting either park, feel free to connect with me.
The Beagle Project video was quite interesting. The scene at the end with two of them hiding in the box was more in line with what I've experienced with dogs from labs or breeder dogs from puppy mills. Having so many willing to explore and socialize was very nice to see. They all appear to be young, which helps a lot.Some puppy mill breeder dogs I've known have never gotten beyond the hiding in a box (or crate or doghouse) phase, even after years. It seems to largely depend upon how old they were when finally given freedom. The younger they are the more likely that they'll be able to deal with open spaces and socialization.
