Some video and some fun video links......

In the last post I wrote that unwanted (about 75% of them) dairy cow babies are sometimes smashed in the head with a hammer.  This video, called Saving Billy, is about one of these baby dairy cows that was a lucky little boy and ended up at Farm Sanctuary.  He was saved thanks to a human animal that stood up for him.  There are no gross or violent scenes so watch and enjoy:



Jeanne, over at Heartland Rabbit Rescue sent a link to this wonderful video showing a terrific dog person having fun with a young deer person.

Next, you can watch a quick fox person jumping over a lazy dog person.

Now watch a catfish person that appears to enjoy being petted.

This video shows a feathered person making a tool and using it effectively.

And, finally, look at this porcupine person playing and showing off some twirl moves.

Each animal person wants to (among other things) enjoy play, enjoy life, enjoy caresses, solve problems and have friends and family.  If we allow them to.

I write here about Veganism because Veganism is a way of living that seeks to exclude, as far as possible and practicable, all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing and any other purpose.  Such a way of living entails allowing each animal person to enjoy her or his life just as human animal persons want to enjoy theirs.

What can I say.....I can think of no better way of living.

The dog and the fawn... Did you see at the end of the video they had 2 cats observing their antics?

Never quite realized foxes were so dainty...

And Billy - What a cutie! What monster could ever think of harming him? <3

Thanks for commenting Bea. Yes, I did notice the 2 cat people there at the end. I suspect they had some interesting thoughts as they watched. Foxes are incredibly interesting animal people, behaviorally they resemble cats in some ways. Some decades ago Russian scientists controlled the breeding of foxes and ended up with a generation of foxes that were human friendly (http://www.scribd.com/Trut-Fox-Study/d/249407). Thank goodness this apparently hasn't engendered much interest, the world does not need more animal people dependent on human animals.

Billy is a gem, I agree.

This was an uplifting blog post. Thankfully there are a lot (though still not enough) people who have love and respect for the non-human animal and are willing to take action. I post a lot of videos on my AR blog that are no so uplifting so I really appreciated reading your.
Thank You
