Dog killers are not human since humanity is not a part of them.

Assignment questions are still not here yet although it's the end of Week 2. I am happy and a little stressed at the same time. Happy because I can relax for another week and stressed because this means that I will have shorter duration of time to complete them.

Humans are imperfect, a truth that no one can deny. However, the flaws within the imperfection of humans can be so hideous that it shocked me a little. People can be so cruel. I heard a story from a distant neighbour this evening (while I was taking Crystle out for her daily walk) about how his two dogs were poisoned a few days ago/yesterday. They usually barked loudly but do they deserve to die just because they were acting naturally like dogs? It's not our right to take away the lives of another because we are all God's creation and only He has the power to control all things. Even we do not deserve the right to take our own lives. So why do the heartless people think they have the right to take away lives, whether they are just animals or not? It is still murder! Just because they cannot commit murder to another human doesn't mean that they can do whatever they like with other people's pets.

I know some of you might think, "Hey, what's the big deal? It's not even your pet. Just chill."

I have this soft spot for animals so there's no way I can be ignorant about what is happening around here. Crystle might be the next victim if there is really someone who is crazy enough to poison every single dog in the neighbourhood.

To cool off the heat that is building in this entry, here is a picture of the twilight sky I snapped two days ago. Simply serene.

Once again, I marvel at God's creativity. I thank the Lord for each passing day that I am still alive and well amidst the terrifying virus of H1N1 spreading around.

Psalm 91 is so appropriate and useful to keep our minds at peace at this period of transgression.

Psalm 91

1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. [a]

2 I will say [b] of the LORD, "He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust."

3 Surely he will save you from the fowler's snare
and from the deadly pestilence.

4 He will cover you with his feathers,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.

5 You will not fear the terror of night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,

6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
nor the plague that destroys at midday.

7 A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.

8 You will only observe with your eyes
and see the punishment of the wicked.

9 If you make the Most High your dwelling—
even the LORD, who is my refuge-

10 then no harm will befall you,
no disaster will come near your tent.

11 For he will command his angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways;

12 they will lift you up in their hands,
so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.

13 You will tread upon the lion and the cobra;
you will trample the great lion and the serpent.

14 "Because he loves me," says the LORD, "I will rescue him;
I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.

15 He will call upon me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble,
I will deliver him and honor him.

16 With long life will I satisfy him
and show him my salvation."

you know, the dog that came by my place, where my mom adopted him as another dog in the family, was burnt with hot water all over his body. he was in so much pain and was suffering so much! to top it all off, he was thrown by the roadside because they didn't want to go through the trouble to cure him!

he died in pain.

feeding animals poison sometimes, isn't THAT bad, if it's just for a little while you know... at least they die on the spot. the worst part is that they suffer so terribly before they die.

plus, my mother didn't believe in putting the dog to sleep. she wants the dog to finish his 'karma' before leading for the next life where he can be all comfy and with such high hopes, she plans to save his life, which was to no avail.

i cannot imagine some humans could do things like these to animals, especially when they are so defenseless! these idiotic people who torture animals should really pick on their own size!!!
