I Bought Baby Gray a Harness!


Last night, I bought baby Gray a small black (white spotted) harness so I would be able to walk around, ‘safely’ in the garden since we haven’t been able to bunny proof it yet. And let me tell you, this baby rabbit is SUPER patient. If I had done this to Maggie she would’ve scratched my eyes off. Surprisingly! He hasn’t bitten me yet (which I was expecting) especially from trying to carry him and put this and that. Yes, it was quite stressful (and he disliked the harness, but happily tolerated it, so that means I didn’t waste money)

It is NOT this, but it looks like it.

It is NOT this, but it looks like it.

Apparently, the harness was too big! Especially around the neck area, so I had to adjust it THREE times (which is a nightmare since I have to put it back on Gray). But after an hour or two, I finally got the right size. So I put it [harness] on the bunny (who was being very obedient) and clipped an ID [stuff that you put around your neck- forgot what it’s called], attached to a pink, long, and silky fabric as a temporary lead. I know, cheap, but who wants something expensive?

I was finally able to walk him around the house and he was a pretty quick hopper, so I had to run with him. The good thing is, I’m actually working out! But then, momma woke up from her beauty sleep and told me to walk Gray outside (she didn’t want him pooping around the house). So I took him outside, but it was quite warm and humid (to the point where I started sweating like a pig). At first, Grayham was a bit scared to go- but after awhile, he finally went. I don’t think he had much fun as he did indoors for it was really really hot- I mean, who would? Unless they like sweating.

I got a bit worried because rabbits could die from heatstroke (that’s how Maggie died), so after 10 minutes of running around the garden I carried him back to his cage (he didn’t want to- but I don’t think he knows when to stop). And guess what? When I put him in his cage, he immediately did a little flop,like being in his cage was the best thing ever. Haha cute lil’ Gray.

Grayham~

Though it was cute seeing him lie down like that, I had to remove the uncomfortable harness that lay around his body. And when I placed him back on his cage and petted him, he did another flop (showing his stomach). ADORABLE!

It’s good to know that Gray doesn’t hold any grudges. Such a patient and lovely rabbit. God bless ya’ll and I hope you guys have a great day!

Will Animals go to Heaven?


Now this topic was really hard for me to grasp in as a Christian. I love animals. They are my second love, music first, writing third. But now that I know about Jesus and His unconditional love for us, He became my first love- though that is kind of impossible since music was my first love- but you see? nothing is impossible with God. See what I did there? *wink wink*

Anyway, the question “Will Animals go to Heaven?” first began when my beloved rabbit, Maggie, died. She was very precious to me and for me to see her dead was horrible.

Maggie

My precious Maggie

I have asked these questions to my parents, friends, (I haven’t asked my Pastor yet) etc. and most of them answered “no” or “I don’t know” not one answered “yes”, so I was quite disappointed. I felt the same way (disappointed) when I heard that when we are in heaven, we wouldn’t see each other the same way again or feel the same feelings as we did on earth- whether we were in love, enemies, yada yada- we won’t feel the same way, but that doesn’t mean we would forget our feelings, but rather, think of each other as brothers and sisters in Christ.

At first, I was a little bummed. I wouldn’t want to lose the lovely feeling I would have if I had a husband, or see my parents as my siblings- it was a disturbing thought at first- but then, think of it this way… the only reason why we could lose these feelings in heaven is because, there is someone better. And that is God. Could you imagine? How powerful, beautiful, majestic, indescribable, God is? to be able to see your husband, your friends, your children, (etc.) as brothers and sisters? That’s incredible to me.

But I’m getting out of topic here (it happens all the time- so expect me to be typing about how I was supposed to be doing the laundry when the title is “About dogs”), the question is ‘Will Animals go to Heaven’?

The Bible indicates that animals will exist after His return and the beginning of the Kingdom as Isaiah 11:6-9 reads, “The wolf will live with the lamb, the leopard will lie down with the goat, the calf and the lion and the yearling together; and a little child will lead them. The cow will feed with the bear, their young will lie down together, and the lion will eat straw like the ox. The infant will play near the cobra’s den, the young child will put its hand into the viper’s nest. They will neither harm nor destroy on all my holy mountain, for the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the LORD as the waters cover the sea.”  Here is the Word of God declaring that animals will still exist in the future, after Christ’s reign begins. Ecclesiastes mentions that there is a “spirit” in man but also in animals in (3:19, 21) but this does not necessarily mean that it is an eternal spirit.

Revelation 19:11-14 indicates, for example, that Jesus returns to the earth with His army of saints on white horses, “I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice he judges and wages war. His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself. He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God. The armies of heaven were following him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean.”

“A more important question is if you, the reader, will be in heaven.  It is pointless to ponder the question of whether your pet goes to heaven if you yourself are not there. – Jack Wellman”

In my research, it is said that ‘nobody‘ knows whether or not animals will be in heaven. We could only find out, if we see for ourselves. I agree that it might worry you a little, that is- until I read this:

The elderly widow whose beloved little dog died after fifteen faithful years. Distraught, she went to her pastor.

“Parson,” she said, tears streaming down her cheeks, “the vicar said animals have no souls. My darling little dog Fluffy has died. Does that mean I won’t see her again in heaven?”

“Madam,” said the old priest, “God, in His great love and wisdom has created heaven to be a place of perfect happiness. I am sure that if you need your little dog to complete your happiness, you will find her there.”

…………………………………..

But I doubt we would even remember our pets once we see our Father in heaven, I’m kind of jealous with Moses, that He was able to see God’s mighty power and beauty. Isn’t it cool though? The bible said that His head and hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire;

That must’ve been a/an- adjective- sight. Indescribable.

Greasy hair and Oily face- Surprised at Birthday!!


I just finished my birthday yesterday and let me say was it FUN! Honestly though, the first 5 minutes before my birthday started, I felt alone, like nobody was gonna be there for me on my birthday… Only thing I didn’t know was that God had a plan, and boy was it a good one 😀

Happy Birthday to Me! <3

Happy Birthday to Me! ❤

July 22, was a really magical day. It was the date of my birth, the day filled with laughter, the day of my Aunt and Uncle’s wedding anniversary, and the day of my Grandmother’s 86th birthday and guess what? she still wore the exact same shirt she wore at our birthday party last year…

I had LOTS of surprises! A baby American Chinchilla rabbit (I named Grayham) that mom and dad bought me… I’ve always wanted another rabbit, especially after Maggie died… she was the best friend I have ever had. Anyway, when dad and mom bought Grayham, I was kind of worried, (cause they might’ve brought a sick rabbit or a baby who hasn’t been weaned) but he was alright, I guess. He’s the size of my palms, which means he might be 3-4 weeks old (which is still quite young). His poop is not normal looking, they’re brown in color and oval in shape (no, they are not cecals- but something I think might be worst), I am guessing Grayham has “cow-poop syndrome” and I am very worried about that. But before I bring him to the vet, I’ll see what I could do at the meantime. But he is just SOO ADORABLE! Very soft and quite tame, he’s still a bit skittish around humans though. He might have cow poop syndrome, but I am definitely NOT gonna bring him back to the petshop, it’s HORRIBLE in there. (If you wanna know more about Grayham, I’m gonna post a page about him… or her) Anyway, I’m out of topic again… what were we talking about? Oh yeah!

I had LOTS of surprises! The baby rabbit- which I already mentioned AND… *clears throat*

The door bell rang and I expected it to be my mom’s friends coming in to celebrate, who knows? I was actually at the verge of being surprised by my buddies! I suddenly regretted not putting on some shampoo…

We had tons of fun!

We went swimming… and we went swimming! It was AWESOME xD Bwahahaha I’m getting crazy right now! *breathe in… breathe out* As I was saying *clears throat* We had TONS OF FUN! God really has a way of making a person happy. Oh! and if you’re wondering how old I am… I’m now 14!

And now, if you’ll excuse me, Imma go play with Grayham. God bless!

Psalm 90: 14

Surprise us with love at daybreak; then we’ll skip and dance all the day long.

New FISH?


UPDATE (Nov. 28 2012)

All my fishes (except the snails) have gone to my uncles aquarium! 

My Apple snail died unfortunately, BUT my zebra snail, is currently the most long lived pet I have had in my life 😀 Its been 1 year since I have gotten him/her, but now, he is not alone…

My parents bought me….

A TIGER OSCAR FISH!

but I didn’t know, if I did, I wouldnt have bought it because, one, IT GETS BIG (sixteen inches) and is quite AGGRESSIVE , but my parents bought FOUR because my mom thinks that they need to be in groups (WRONG), they are territorial fishes, but seems to be okay with a few other fishes (if fed well). So I may have to remind my parents, They could give me a gift, but not one that breathes… BUT THANKS ANYWAYS!

—————————————-

RIght now, they are currently living in a 10 gallon tank, I know its harsh and you guys don’t have to spit that on my face, but of course, we will give them away…

—————————————-

Usually, if my parents buys me a living thing, it would either be sick, or the wrong thing to buy, and which I would shout at them for. But now, I am a big girl, and part of me has to control that anger, I mean, I am quite happy that my parents would buy me an oscar for I have been wanting one, but they are high maintenance pets, they need a heater, a 40 or 55 gallon tank, filterS (they create a lot of mess!) clean water, and they eat LIVE FOOD (but not necessarily)…

I have heard that some of them enjoy being petted, which is quite a bonus (but be careful for those who are curious to find out, they have a hard bite!)

So all in all they are AWESOME pets, but they need some extra work taken care of….

So THINK TWICE! unless your really in love with these animals…

Maggie’s story:

When I went to the pet shop, I saw these bunnies and thought how cute they were, but when I went there all of the bunnies ran except for one that took my heart…. Maggie… She came to me with love, and I really begged my parents to get her for me, and they did! When I brought her home, I can’t stop playing with her and petting her and after a few weeks, I just noticed that she had diarrhea and her butt was stuck with poop, so I cleaned it up and gave her a home made remedy/ medicine for diarrhea, then she was healed (she had diarrhea many times, but it is easy to remove), anyways, we kept playing and stuff, and then I noticed she was getting bigger and bigger and was thinking of buying her a bigger cage, and it worked out well and we gave her more space to play in our balcony! And me and Maggie lived so peacefully and happily, until the time came… my sister didn’t stop coughing and sneezing, so mom and dad brought her to the hospital and it turned out that my sister was allergic to Maggie’s fur, and I cried soo hard cause I knew it meant that I had to sell Maggie, but I refused as always (cause I really really do truly love Maggie), so mom and dad decided to keep maggie outside in our balcony, (BAD IDEA), so the next day, when I came home from school, I checked the balcony and, Maggie was all well and it was cold outside so I was sure Maggie was gonna be alright (but I was wrong and I hate being WRONG, since were living in Dubai, it will mostly be hot), then when I came home from school, I was eating and talking about Maggie and about selling her, then my Aunt looked at the balcony and saw Maggie, lying there, dead, so my Aunt told me, and of course I didn’t believe, so I walked to the balcony for proof, then I just cried there and told my Aunt, that she is right, and that was the last time I saw my best friend :( .

But there was a reason, for GOD knows that I will not sell and refuse to sell her, and my sister was suffering because of Maggie, so GOD just took Maggie instead of my sister which I am really thankful for, so rest in peace my beloved Maggie :(

————————————

And now! HAPPY 5th BIRTHDAY LIL’ SIS!! (2 more days to go)

I lurv you soooo much!! I pray that you have a very extra abnormal birthday sis! 😀

God Bless you!! ❤

My Lil’ sis (HGYP)

I Feel like a Vampire…


I have read a lot of vampire stories, and honestly, I consider myself as a wolf, one of my classmates call me ‘Wolfie’ cause of the similarities…

I have a tan skin, I growl when I’m mad, I can read people like books (understand what their feeling), I hate the smell of perfume (So I faked being allergic to perfume since my ‘girly’ classmates think they smell bad when I’m the one who needs a bath), I punch quite hard *nose grows longer, and I have big ears which works, I run pretty fast too… So I’m fantisizingly (my new word) a Wereworlf 🙂

But anyways, back to vampires, the whole reason for feeling like a vampire is the part where I get to outlive my love ones (pets…)

It just pains to see them die… you know? I have read one vampire story where a vampire had to suffer watching his human wife die while he lives an infinite more years of grief… harsh I know… I don’t really know what its like to feel that way until my pet rabbit died… Maggie… I know I kind of bring her up a lot, but she ‘was’ very special to me, until now… I hate it when people say ‘its just a rabbit’ usually my brain would shout ‘And your a heartless freak!’ but no can do, that would be very harsh of me, you see? I’m a very nice girl! (BWAHHAAHAHA)

So yeah… When Maggie died, I felt like a vampire that has a lot more years to come and has to move on and watch all the others die… sad…

I know we all have to move on, but its hard to have a different pet and see them die, and the cycle goes on and all that poop…

Sigh… I FEEL LIKE A VAMPIRE! and not liking it…

 

Not working out…


I just realized that I dont work out with birds that much (my opinion…)

Birds are noisy, hard to tame… I know, birds are intelligent, fun to be with, and all. But they just don’t stir anything in me…

When I first got ark, I wasn’t that excited and all, but I didn’t believe in love at first sight 😀

The first reason why birds and me don’t match (In my observation), Is that I tend to be impatient, so the taming didn’t work out well…

second, I don’t tolerate noise much, I am a reader, singer, and writer (i think), and I can’t focus on those when noise pollution reach my ears.

But I am not saying that I don’t like birds or saying that you should not get a bird, I am simply stating that I don’t have enough responsibility to own a bird and that you should think twice or commit to these lovely animals, I love animals so much, but I also have to know my limits…

The Animals I get a long with are the cuddly, lazy, intelligent types of animals… Example:

Bulldogs

Persian cats

Mice (Not cuddly, but i just get a long with them in some weird way)

Rabbits

Fishes

Rats

And all Lazy, Fun. Cute, Intelligent, animals 🙂

Rabbits are my MEGA-Ultra favorite animals! But after Maggie, I couldn’t bare the fact that I could outlive all my pets… its sad. I couldn’t get a tortoise though cause I want an affectionate animal too… I know not all animals are perfect, let me tell you that… But thats what makes them perfect to me… Maggie’s territorial behavior just adds to her personality, and I liked it… But now she’s gone, and It hurts…

I wanted a bird, cause their like dogs and cats, their intelligent, loving, affectionate, and long living, but the thing I did wrong was ignore the consequences or draw backs they carry… Now I am stuck with a scared, noisy, bird… But I still love him… Even if my ears bleed from all the screeching… I’m kind of afraid to tell my parents about me not getting a long with ark because they might get irritated with my pet crazed life 😀 But I have to tell them some way or another.

 could outlive your pets is scary, but you always have to move on… getting another rabbit or mouse… Couldn’t live without them… But I couldn’t stop worrying about their lifespan 😦 *Sigh….

GOD Bless anyways…. Have to prepare for the Church Anniversary today!
