Good day to you, wherever you may be;')
No matter the weather, no matter your health, one should always make it a good day, a day filled with sunshine of the heart and spirit, even when there may be no sunshine, it is still there, and it shall return.
The image above, is one that I can glance at, then be filled with the memory of when I took it, and where I was.
There is a small pond at a park in the "big city" where we can take our dog and allow her to run free...not a dog park either.
That is where I took this image, as I was hunting for Damselflies and Dragonflies...
It looks like sunshine for me~
May you be blessed, as well as make it a blessing too~
I am linking up with Mary for:
Hermie, the little orphaned Gray Squirrel, stayed with me for 6 days and then only because I was going to be leaving on a journey, he had to be placed elsewhere for the remainder of his care.
I am just as picky about this choice, as I am when choosing a family pet.
When I did rehab and release, I always raised and released Spring babies after they were old enough to be on their own and used a soft release approach.
The June babies however, I would winter over.
Most animal care givers don't do this, but release young squirrels out into a stark landscape, with little foliage remaining, and usually into the territory of older squirrel populations, as well as predator dangers.
That is a disaster waiting to happen!
The very least that a care giver should afford these creatures, is some kind of soft release, where the animal can continue to come and go from a protected area.
I found such a place on Wednesday and took little Hermie there, to meet up with a few others in the same situation that he was in.
I am anticipating an update from
"Second Chances Wildlife Center"
as well as an image, to share later on.
I become attached pretty quickly and to some, this is just a pest, a silly Squirrel, but to me, it deserves the best chance at survival.
Being an orphan, so young, being so frightened when found and then to gain trust in you as their caregiver, is simply a gift.
Once I removed Hermie from the security he had known for several days, and placed him in this little box, he just seemed so tiny and it made me a little sad, but also knowing he would have a chance at life, it made me happy too~
After his last feeding with me, I allowed Hermie to run about a bit, before placing him in the transport box.
Once I met up with the lovely people from the wildlife center, he was transferred into the plastic box, and immediately latched on to one of the soft clothes for security.
So long Hermie, it was delightful, and my pleasure~
