I don’t know what I would do if I didn’t have any pets. I don’t know what I’d even be as cliche as that sounds! I cherish every second I get with my big-eared pals. They are my life. My dog is great too. She’s one lovable girl once she warms up to you. 

It’s important to support animals since they don’t have a voice like we humans do. Even if you don’t have the time to volunteer at a shelter there are other ways to help! There is this great company called Animal Hearted. They make all kinds of apparel (women’s, unisex), accessories, hats, and more. 25% of their proceeds are donated to no-kill animal shelters. One way you can help animals in shelters is by going on their site by clicking here: http://animalhearted.com?rfsn=105549.faa79 and order a few treats. For yourself or for a fellow animal lover.

To get 10% off your entire order, you can use my code, PUPTHERABBIT10. Here I am with my dog Piper. She may not look too thrilled about my new shirt from Animal Hearted, but I sure am! 

Oh! And it doesn’t matter what kind of pet you have: dog, cat, frog, tarantula, rabbit, or horse! All animal lovers are welcomed! Hehe.

When people think of pigs, it’s fair to say that they either picture a little pink piggy oinking around on a farm or, if they’re the kind that looks at things from a different side of the spectrum, they picture bacon.

Pigs come in all shapes, sizes, and breeds.

Unless you’ve been hiding beneath a rock, far away from social media, you’ve heard of Bentley. And you’ve probably seen this heartbreaking yet beautiful video:

Bentley is a 9-month-old pot-bellied pig who is in need of help. Before he got rushed to the veterinary hospital, he lived at the EARTH Animal Sanctuary in Roberts, Illinois.

Sweet little piggie.
Sweet little piggie.

One morning his adoptive mama, founder of the sanctuary, found him very sick and unresponsive.

On February 23 a seizure left him in a state of shock and the hospital diagnosed him with very rare bacterial meningitis, which can be fatal. He was given a ten percent chance to live. —EarthAnimalSanctuary.org

Despite everything, she refuses to give up on him. Because who would? I would rather go into credit card debt to help my babies than simply give up on them.

So this is where animal lovers hopefully come in. We need to donate to Bentley and help him make a 100% recovery.

The most recent update posted on the youcaring donation page states:

His final surgery that took place two days ago was incredibly successful, and as soon as his large surgical wounds heal he can come home!!! Since Bentley is still in the hospital, he is still incurring daily charges for blood work, tests, wound debridement, medicine, and care. The projected estimate for his bill by the time he leaves is somewhere around $9000. However, going forward, Bentley will need special care as he re-learns all of the day-to-day functions and behaviors that he lost with the brain swelling from the meningitis.

Let’s get Bentley back home where he belongs and continue to donate towards his medical bills.

Here is the sanctuary’s website.

Thank you for reading <3 Love you Bentley!!

In case you didn’t understand the title, Pup has received a nomination for an award for this blog. He didn’t think much of it when I handed it to him, he just ran off underneath my bed. ;)

Thank you, CocoBaba the cute lil ferret, for nominating us for the Liebster Award! We’re honored :) We work hard to think of good ideas for the blog and keep people coming back for more. :) You’ve remained a loyal follower since the beginning <3

Here are some guidelines for Liebster Award:

1. Thank and link the person who nominated you.
2. Answer the questions given by the nominator.
3. Nominate 11 other bloggers whom have less than 200 followers and link to them.
4. Create 11 new questions for the nominees to answer.
5. Notify all nominees via social media and/or blogs.

Cocobaba’s Questions to Me:

1. Personally, I had some trouble deciding the title/subtitle when creating my blog. How did you come up with the title and/or subtitle of your blog?

I wanted to create something unique. A rabbit named Pup? That could be a good attention grabber. There are so many blogs out there so I wanted to try and stand out.

2. What are some of the most rewarding experiences you had from blogging?

I like that I can provide information to help others and educate them about animals. It’s fun to see how many people like, reblog, and comment on my posts too. Keeps me posting more.

3. Taking pictures of animals has been my hobby for some time, and I thought creating a blog would be a great archival method to share those picture. What made you want to  start your blog?

I wanted to combine my 2 true loves: writing and animals. So I am here writing about animals. It’s a dream job!

4. Have you ever switched your blog’s appearance themes? If so, any themes you recommend for new bloggers?

Yes. Sometimes I get bored of my theme. I recently changed mine to something a bit more simple. When there is too much going on in a page I lose interest. I don’t like clutter. Stay with a simple theme would be my advice.

5. Blogging can sometimes be very time-consuming to many. Have you ever thought of quitting your blog? If so, what made you decide to keep blogging?

I’ve never thought about quitting this blog but I’ve taken lengthy breaks from posting. Mostly when I get writer’s block or when I get discouraged. But I always come back and post. :)

I nominate the following blogs:
