A Dog is a Child’s Best Friend – Comforting Newtown, Connecticut

Golden Retriever Puppies

Please read this article linked below about how some beautiful Golden Retrievers are helping the children at Sandy Hook Elementary School, Connecticut.   I have said to my sister that sometimes I would much rather live with an orang utan than with human beings.   20 children were killed and the others left scarred for life.   If you want stricter gun control in the U.S.A. please consider signing this online petition   here.

Please click on the link below to read how the dogs & the Lutheran Church Charities are helping.

A Dog is a Child’s Best Friend

What my Cat taught me

cropped-shandy-lying

1.  It is important / essential in life to care for and look after another sentient (living) being.

 2.  Cats can smile.  They have feelings and emotions. 

 3.  Each being knows what he or she needs and is entitled to it and should go for it intutively.

 4.  Every person is responsible for his or her own decisions, as is every cat.

First of all, so I don’t have to write it out again here, please see this post   here   ( on the Our Animal Friends main tab ) to read about our cat Shandy, and to see photos of him.

Cladograms & Evolution – We are all related

Brontosaurus

Brontosaurus painting by Charles Knight

Phylogenetics orPhylogenetic systematics is a discipline and a field of biology that aims to identify and understand the evolutionary relationships among the many different kinds of life forms on earth, both living (extant) and dead (extinct)Cladistics uses an understanding of phylogenetics to look at the “Tree of Life” and uses a type of diagram called a Cladogram to represent branched “evolutionary relationships” or phylogenies.

Phylogenies are lists or diagrams that show the evolutionary paths taken by populations of organisms through many generations and over long periods of time.

Nomenclature is the devising or choosing of names for things, especially within a branch of science. Systematics or Taxonomy is the branch of biology that deals with classification and nomenclature of organisms or life forms.  A binomial (or two word) nomenclature is used to label and identify known species, using a Genus name and a Species name.  Please see    this   post here for in depth information about TAXONOMY.
