This Dachshund is fostering this little pig for another mom who couldn't take care of him. He had his eyes closed, but now they are open. He is just a little bigger than her other pups. She loves this little guy as much as the other puppies and she is nursing him back to health. He is the cleanest pig-puppy ever because she licks him all the time.
HIS NAME IS PINK.
Now besides being as cute as a button - I do have something I learned or at least thought about from these pictures today. Look a dog being a mama to a pig! Is that not sweet?
“Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope... and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.” —Robert F. Kennedy
I was thinking how when we do something for others - not even for our own family or friends, but say a stranger - (and you may never know what the affect will be down the road) - but you may be affecting lives you'll never even know. If you do something for one person - and they do something for someone else - and so forth. You don't see the so forth, but you are a part of it anyway. Does that make sense?
Kind of like say if you give to a charity or a missionary or even something simpler than that. You could even do something nice for a friend or family member and keep it a secret.
I call it the ripple effect. What we do for someone else - every though they may be different then us - you may never know where that kindness you did ends up - or what good it will do in the future - maybe you'll never find out - but does it really matter?
When you drop a rock in water and see the ripples - the ripples don't end when you can't see them anymore - they go further out then that. You just can't see it.
I'm not preaching here I'm just thinking of ways to make ones self happier - when you're doing things for others, at least for me, I don't take the time to feel bad for me! teehee So I'm going to think of something I can do today. Hmmmmmmmmmm........

“Remember there's no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end.” —Scott Adams
