@wolfgang2242 is my regular dose of warm fuzzies and jocularity #whywearevegan 💗💗💗😊💗💗💗#whywearevegan 💗💗 Repost from @wolfgang2242 using @RepostRegramApp - OK, I'm going to throw a lot at you here. I went to the chicken swap to rebuild my flock but didn't find any chickens I connected with. Yes, similar to speed dating, I like to connect with my chickens before committing to a long term relationship. Anyway, I have a bad habit of going to the chicken swap and coming home with anything but a chicken (like a pig named Bikini for instance) and this time I came home with the rabbit named Dewayne. (What can I say ,we had a connection.) Dewayne the rabbit and Stuart the rabbit (who I've have had for years) get along fine but they like to engage in some "adult activities" and since Stuart is really old I'm afraid that might give him a heart attack. So, at this point I keep them separated most of the time. Unlike Stuart the rabbit who hardly ever poops when he comes in, Dewayne the rabbit can't seem to stop pooping when he comes in, and that's the long story of why you're looking at a picture of a rabbit wearing a diaper. Hopefully, depending on how Dwayne acclimates to occasionly being inside, we could ditch the diaper later.
#depends

Yes I'm aware rabbits can be litter box trained
Yes he will be neutered
Yes this is just a temporary fix
Yes the idea is for him and stuart to live together, you have to give me a little time.....
To all the rabbit people don't freak out., he's wearing this about an hour a day until he gets neutered within a few weeks.

Precious 💗. Kodiak can use your help and prayers Repost from @boochaces using @RepostRegramApp - Kodiak needs baths more frequently than other puppies due to her urinary incontinence. She leaks, even in her sleep - so it is important to keep an eye on her skin and fur to make sure she does not get too irritated. Her vet appointment went well on Monday but now we have to go see a specialist and a surgeon on April 9th. We do believe she has ectopic ureter which will require an expensive surgery. We are so grateful that her previous human surrendered her to us so we can do everything in our power to help her. 🖤 Wish her luck. ... See MoreSee Less

Sending warmth, comfort and power to all on the East Coast; ☀️💗❤️🙏🏻🐾🌿#whywearevegan Repost from @boochaces using @RepostRegramApp - Day 2 no power! And no power means no water or heat. I have not been posting because my phone has been dead. I managed to charge it in the truck. Today, the main goal is to keep the animals watered, fed, clean and dry. We have a huge water tank that we are going to fill. Due to not being able to soak my hands in the medicated formula last night, they are completely blistered this morning. Oozing. When people say they want to start a farm rescue, I immediately jump to moments like this one. Whether it is the cold, snow, wind, tornado, heat, flood, etc. - you always have to put the animals first. Always. This is a very hard life - but sitting by the fire with Shrimp makes it all worth it. P.S. I know I will get a large amount of people asking about this. His ear tag is still in due to the potential of him needing surgery in a different state. Removing it right now could put him at risk if the off chance occurred in which an authoritative figure pushed to find out exactly where he traces back to. “Meat” animals are treated like slaves - property. There are laws protecting the people who eat them - not the animals. 🖤✌️ ... See MoreSee Less

Sweetness 💗💗💗 #whywearevegan Repost from @onegreenplanet using @RepostRegramApp - Harveigh is a 400-pound cow who was born just a few days after Hurricane Harvey’s wrath settled on Texas. Harveigh was abandoned by her mother and was rescued when Tammy Canton and her husband found the orphaned baby standing in their flooded pasture.
The family planned to nurse her back to health until a more permanent solution was found. But then Harveigh met the family’s Pit Bull, Sealy, and it was clear she was already home!
Harveigh and Sealy became BFFs and loved to snuggle up together. There are seven other dogs in the household, but Harveigh and Sealy have a special bond! Since she doesn’t know any different, Harveigh thinks she is a dog. Cows really are just big puppies, after all!

A happy “hump day” post you’ll want to share ❤️❤️❤️ #whywearevegan Repost from @preservewildlife using @RepostRegramApp - This Camel in Saudi Arabia had lost half it's body when it unfortunately wondered onto a land mine. After losing the back portion of its body, surgeons worked tirelessly arranging the internal organs into a functioning system. They also created the Camel a new functioning Anus. The Camel has made new friends with the local Ostrich family where they have adopted him as one of their own. The Camel is able to regurgitate water directly into the Ostriches mouths when there is no other water source available.

❤️❤️❤️ #whywearevegan Repost from @boochaces using @RepostRegramApp - From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU - to anyone and everyone who has purchased a shirt to become a member of Miakoda’s herd. I know this sounds silly - but when I looked at the stats and it reflected that 224 of you have purchased a shirt for Mia, I almost cried. This little horse was sitting in a government holding pen for close to five years of her life. Wild. Untouched. Trapped. She ran through numerous adoption events and no one wanted her because she had an “ugly face” or she was “too small.” She is the coolest, most badass beast who nature has ever unleashed and I am LUCKY and honored to simply be in her presence. Our bonding sessions have become the absolute best parts of my days as of late. She is just so special. I can barely put it into words. From wild and crazy and unwanted to wild and crazy and deeply loved... ❤️ Here are a few clips from our play date today. We had a very intense training (pampering) session, so today was all fun and games while we awaited this massive snowstorm. To order a Miakoda shirt, click the link in @jandrelevich bio!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ #miakodamustang ... See MoreSee Less
