The ongoing Political Musings of a former (now Stray) Yellar Dawg Dem.
This is a Feminist Blog, in the tradition of Susan B. Anthony.
"Just Tell Them...
I have worked 40 years to make the Women's Suffrage platform broad enough for Atheists and Agnostics to stand upon, and now if need be I will fight the next 40 to keep it Catholic enough to permit the straightest Orthodox religionist to speak or pray and count her beads upon."

New Year 2009, Self Portrait ... With Some Help From, Very Pesty Kitty, Timon
This year I am "Letting the Cuckoo Out."
Yesterday we did a mid-sized rescue from Indiana. It was a great way to start the new year, we thought! Five doggies and two kitties.
Everybody is good as gold. Really. Cept Timon.
Timon won his name for mewing all the way home. He simply does not shut up. And he wanted to be held the whole way. (His friend Simba is quiet with an occasional hiss.... cuz he was a Christmas gift for a bunch of kids that scared the bejeebies out of him.)
Anyways... Simba and Timon spent only a short time in their condo together.... before I decided to give Timon the run of the office. That lasted through the night... until.... Timon heard me get up! Mew, mew, mew, mew, mew..... now he is out running the house and walking on keyboards. He was mildly interested in my own cat, Harry Potter. And he liked my big dog, Lola for about a minute and a half.
This Timon is true to his name! That is for sure!! He is adding to the craziness around here, with his continuous chatter. I guess I should not be shocked tho. When I took the "Let the Cuckoo Out" shirt for my New Years 2009 motto.... what did I expect?
In "real life" Dawg is a mom, a nurse, a pet rescuer and a tireless advocate for animal rights.
Dawg is happily married for thirty years and has raised three awesome children. She holds an advanced degree in Family Science, wherein her research was focused on women's support circles during parturition. Her dedication to Women's Rights is directly affected by her belief that motherhood should not be a sentence to isolation and disenfranchisement.
Dawg is on hiatus from political bloggery d/t the intense demands of her engagement in the No Kill movement at this time. However, she remains influenced by PUMA politics and reads the blogs of her fellow PUMAs (at right) regularly.
Thanks for the Visit, all you Stray Dogs and PUMAs!
"Sooner or later we all discover that the important moments in life are not the advertised ones, not the birthdays, the graduations, the weddings, not the great goals achieved. The real milestones are less prepossessing. They come to the door of memory unannounced, stray dogs that amble in, sniff around a bit and simply never leave.
