Woof it is Me

Spread the love

Woof to all my friends,

October being Domestic Violence Month and a month that brings back so many sad memories for Mom we decided last weekend to enjoy life and freedom instead.

It is not that we are ignoring the sad fact of the abuse of women, kids and pets but it has been a long journey for Mom and having that freedom and sunny weather Mom decided to take advantage of it.

We are though going to include the Power and Control Wheel of Animal Abuse in Domestic Violence as this is an issue close to us and they do not have a voice but we do so we need to speak up. You are welcome to share this on your pages or websites and be there voices too, it would be much appreciated.

Last weekend was a long weekend, so much to do all around San Francisco as there are always free events. Mom sat and worked out what we would do and the adventures started. BOL the only time I ever let her be boss is when making those decisions. It was also Fleet Week weekend and I do not like the jets flying over us plus Mom thinks that money should be used for better causes.

On Saturday they had in our Dog Park an event called Bark at the Park. This event honors our K-9 Heroes and their human friends during San Francisco Fleet Week. Lots of dogs, fun, and loads to learn on how to keep our pets safe during disasters. A really great noisy event, plus I love supporting these organizations that do so much for us.

On Sunday was the annual Castro Street Fair – this is just a fun fair with lots of booths, food and dancing. We, of course went although I carried Madam in her backpack as it is chaotic the best was popping into one of the booths called Pet Wants, Layla woofs best treats in town and she got utterly spoiled.


On the way home from the fair we stopped in the park, hung out with friends and just relaxed. The weather was perfect.

On Monday I decided that was it, no events, no nothing and instead relaxed in the park with all our friends. It was just a relaxing day.

So as you can see our life is always busy and I love it especially as I can take Layla with me although I must admit I do base a lot on Pet Events as they are fun and I really enjoy them.

On this note we going to end our weekly adventure blog as Layla is waiting for dinner and I must make mine too. I have a big pot of veggie soup simmering also – yummmm.

Have a wonderful weekend and everyone please be safe.

Woof with love from Layla

  1. I hope one day there will be no more abuse of any kind. I know it is a tall order, but I still pray for that to become a reality.

    You are so lucky you have so much to do and so many fun adventures there in your town! It’s good to take a nice day to simply relax and enjoy!

    Hugs!

    • Thanks Dorothy and I pray the same daily. I am fortunate with all the free event and try to do what I can with Layla plus then sit back and relax too. Hugs

  2. The domestic violence issue is a really big deal. I have to admit though it wasn’t the biggest thing that kept me in an abusive situation because I also have human children the what am I going to do about the cats was definitely a factor. Thankfully the jerk face ex moved on.

    • I agree I wish more would but I also think of the staff in the shelters plus who have so much to deal with that pets are an extra worry

  3. It is so important that you are helping raise awareness about domestic violence, but I’m glad you had some fun over the weekend and relaxed on Monday! I just found out about an organization that helps victims of domestic violence with pets: Red Rover (https://redrover.org). I imagine you are familiar with it, but if not, it could be a great resource for you.

    • Thanks for that resource and yes they are great and always good to be reminded plus share their link for others. I am trying on weekends to take advantage of the last great weather before winter, Beth

  4. Your report is making me jealous 🙂 Some lovely sunshine and the park. Got to be the best.
    Your mum is good to speak out about this. Domestic violence of EVERY kind is totally wrong.

    Thank you for joining the Pet Parade we really appreciate you dropping by. You managed it just fine. Well done!!
