I'm Thankful for my Turkey

I'm thankful for my turkey Jake.

I'm thankful that he was rescued from an abusive neglectful situation by Red Dog Farm.

I'm thankful he came to live with us.

I'm thankful for his calm presence, sweet personality and beautiful feathers.

I'm thankful for how he likes to follow us around the yard and how he protects the girls.

I'm thankful for food that brings me comfort.... because no animal was hurt or suffered or was killed just to fill my plate.

I'm thankful this lovely bird will never have to live in the horrible conditions or suffer the abuses so many millions of other turkeys do just because people feel they can kill them without remorse.

I'm thankful more and more the people are becoming aware of these issues and many are making changes that hopefully someday will end these horrors.

Veggies are All You Need

I'm kind of in love with this image. It's an an from the International Vegetarian Union.

Why don't we have more of these ads running here in the U.S.? We need to hear something besides the perpetual cycle of meat, eggs, cheese, "happy cow", fast food and soda messaging.
