you cant really trust any so called "Nice" breeder.. with a slightly better home in issaquah.. and the not so suitable dogs hidden away in a dark basement in burien. 100 dogs were rescued... and the breeder might not even get charged..!!
The basement was so dark that you couldn’t see your hand in front of your face. The windows were blacked out and there was ripped up plastic hanging from the door jam at the entrance of the room. There had to be a pungent stench of urine and feces. The sound of dogs frantically barking almost overpowered a radio.

A 2006 study, conducted by the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine with the George Washington University and the University of Toronto, looked at the health benefits of a low-fat, unrefined, vegan diet (excluding all animal products) in people with type 2 diabetes.5 Portions of vegetables, grains, fruits, and legumes were unlimited. The vegan diet group was compared with a group following a diet based on American Diabetes Association (ADA) guidelines. The results of this 22-week study were astounding:
- Forty-three percent of the vegan group and 26 percent of the ADA group reduced their diabetes medications. Among those whose medications remained constant, the vegan group lowered hemoglobin A1C, an index of long-term blood glucose control, by 1.2 points, three times the change in the ADA group.
- The vegan group lost an average of about 13 pounds, compared with only about 9 pounds in the ADA group.
- Among those participants who didn’t change their lipid-lowering medications, the vegan group also had more substantial decreases in their total and LDL cholesterol levels compared to the ADA group.
There is NO nutritional component of Cows milk that is necessary for humans more than a hyena's milk.
Cows do not "give" milk. We steal it from them.
Humans are the only mammals drinking any kind of milk into adulthood. -Colleen Patrick-Goudreau

When an oil goes rancid or oxidizes, it produces free radicals. Free radicals are the anti anti-oxidant. Where anti-oxidants help prevent signs of aging like wrinkles and heart disease. Free radicals cause premature aging and diseases.
When cooking at high temps or with a high flame you should use a good, hearty saturated oil or fat that will remain stable when being heated and not produce any free radicals. Such fats are butter, coconut oil, sesame oil.
When using a low flame, or baking-- monounsaturated cold- pressed, organic, extra virgin olive oil is a good choice. Olive oil will go rancid and create free radicals at high temperatures (or with a high flame). A good general rule of thumb: if you’re cooking with more than a medium flame on the stove-top: DON’T use virgin olive oil. Use organic coconut or sesame oil, butter or ghee instead. Since this is about vegan diet, butter and ghee are out!
- Coconut oil
- Palm Oil
Medium Heat/Light Sauteing
- Olive Oil
- Sesame Seed Oil
- Hazelnut Nut Oil
- Pistachio Nut Oil
- Pumpkin Oil
- Sunflower Oil
- Flax Seed Oil
- Hemp Seed Oil

Me: Those activists are brave.. I dont know why people call me brave.. i am just living my lifean dealing with whatever comes my way.
Hubbs: Dont worry babe, Once u are out and about and all ready to roll again you will do all that too.
Me: U sure?!
Hubbs: Yeah. u are a passionate person
Me: So u r saying u are ok with the idea that u will have to bail me out from jail some day.
Hubbs: Sure.. There are risks in everything.. u r brave..
Me: Hmm, I am not sure I am that brave.. the idea of spending any time in a windowless cell is scary.. we will see.
Did you all know that you cannot be charged for trespassing if you enter someones property, where any animal is not getting its basic needs like food and water? Well, now u know.. so if your neighbors dog is not getting fed, please do give him some food! And if he is kept on a chain more than 10 hours a day, please contact Dogs Deserve Better in the US.
6-8 million pets are euthanized each year in the US, that is one per 8 seconds.
Please Adopt and talk about adoption with anyone who is thinking about getting a dog or a cat.
Buying = killing 2 animals. One in the shelter and the other that could have taken the place of the adopted animals.

Read up some vegan blogs, recipes, cook, bake and write up my food blog!
Share dogs, who are on the euthanization list, for adoption, try to find people who want to adopt them, email or post on rescues near the dogs, write to people on craigslist, pledge and donate some funds to a rescue can pull the dogs out and more, if the eyes cooperate.
Lots of volunteer options.. But dogs that can be pulled out depends on the availability of foster homes. Lots of dogs are also adopted out of state, but there is the time period in which the adopters get approved and the rescues can arrange for transport.. and the shelter does not keep the dog for that long a time..
Half the dogs I share and connect and keep track of, are not there when I check a few days later. those cute tiny fluffy white maltese or poodles, chihuahuas, gsds, huskies.. all adoptable breeds.. but they dont get a chance because the shelters do not give them enough time.
Its an amazing job all these volunteers are doing and i try ti support in whichever way I can!
Thats my day!
