Rescuing was always about private initiative I guess. Some of us have a soft spot for cats, dogs, baby birds, turtles..whatever. So, you rescue one, then another, then you meet some people who feel the same, make an organization, rescue some more, get organized and then the state comes along and says: “I couldn’t care less about baby birds, but since you do, here’s some money. You do the hard work and I act cool and generous”.

Yesterday we were watching Interstellar. For someone like me, who just read A Brief History of Time years ago and decided that all this was too much knowledge to fit into a tiny brain, Interstellar is comprehensible up to a point. After a while, I completely lose it.

Dead end: a position, situation, or course of action that leads to nothing further. The question is, why do I keep engaging myself to these kinds of conversations. Well, probably because in the back of my mind there is a slight chance that someone is convinced (if not the person in front of me then maybe someone eavesdropping or overhearing the conversation).

Donkeys are awesome, and what’s awesome about them is that they don’t brag about their awesomeness. They are just there, modest, adorable and serene, waiting for you to get to know them better- and once you do, you will fall in love, like I did.

Meet Linda, the woman I have been wanting to “introduce” to the world for months. No video or post could even do her any justice, but this is the least I could do for her. Linda is originally from South Africa. She came to Greece in 2001 for three months, and has been living here since.

Why didn’t you keep him? He loved you … I get this question almost every time I post a video about a rescue or foster dog (ah! especially a foster dog) that was adopted. Today, I even woke up to find a comment in Christie’s video saying “she trusted you and you let her down!” WTF???

15 meaning “I met these 15 and can post about them – there are hundreds like them abandoned every day” I’m not sure we understand what rescuing this kind of beauty right from the street actually means. These 15 were not just found on the street. They were born, considered trash, and abandoned in garbage bins, on the side of the road or in the middle of nowhere, so that they’d starve and die.

Amazing, tough, dedicated and inspiring, these eight women just…deserve to be here. Today it’s Women’s Day, so this post is about these eight women that I know, admire and respect. Some of them have gone viral through my videos, and some haven’t. Animal Welfare in Greece is a heavy load, mainly falling on women’s shoulders. So, here they are:

Double deed when googled usually comes up along with that old nursery rhyme – maybe it was in the actual poem where the phrase was first used, I have no idea actually. For me, it is a masterpiece, and I have been silently reciting it for two months now – I usually talk to myself while I walk my dogs, so after having recited it about 500 times, I came up with my own version of it’s meaning.
