Dog remembers owner after being separated for 3 years

A young woman brings a yellow dog to the airport to greet the dog’s human dad who had been gone for three years.

When the dog sees the man, whose haircut suggests he serves in the military, the dog stares intently at the man for seven seconds, then goes up to the man.

Watch the joyful reunion.

It may be that dogs remember and love their humans even after a separation as long as three years because, according to an Australian study, the bond between humans and dogs is so strong that their hearts actually beat in sync.

Most talented cat in the world

. . . is an Australian cat named Didga (pronounced Did-ja).

She was rescued by a professional animal trainer, who manages to do what we’ve been told is impossible: Train a cat.

Didga rides a skateboard, rolls over on command, pees and poops into a toilet, after which she flushes the toilet!

And here’s an extra treat, on cat body language!

Walter the Frenchie has a serious meltdown…

Last night I watched funny animal videos on YouTube. I needed a break from the political shenanigans of the week.

I came across a channel for Walter Geoffrey the Frenchie. Apparently Walter has a short temper and is a very vocal pup!

Watch some of Walter’s other meltdowns here!

Harmful to our community: University of Northern Iowa Student Gov Tried to Deny Pro-Life Group

Abortion is not only harmful, those who oppose it are apparently a HATE GROUP. Watch and weep:

It’s just amazing listening to these college students. The intolerance for any differing opinion is labeled as “hate.”

And they’ve all been indoctrinated with the narrative that “abortion is a human right.”

Good news though:

Creation: Pufferfish constructs intricate design with his fins

The Pufferfish or blowfish (Tetraodontidae) range in size from the 1-inch-long dwarf or pygmy puffer to the freshwater giant puffer, which can grow to more than 2 feet in length.

Somehow, the male Pufferfish knows how to create, with his little fins, intricate and simply exquisite designs in sand to attract female pufferfish.  (H/t Elizabeth)

How does the pufferfish, laboring at the bottom of the sea, manage to construct this perfectly symmetrical design, the beauty of which can only be seen and appreciated from above?

But biologists tell us the pufferfish somehow developed his ability to create these designs by mere happenstance, otherwise called evolution. [Eyeroll]

The Pufferfish’s clumsy swimming style makes them vulnerable to predators. But the Pufferfish have developed three ways to repel predators:

  1. By puffing up into a virtually inedible ball several times their normal size via quickly ingesting huge amounts of water or air.
  2. Some species have spines on their skin to make them even less palatable.
  3. Almost all pufferfish contain tetrodotoxin, a poison that’s 1,200 times more toxic than cyanide, which makes pufferfish foul tasting and deadly to other fish as well as humans. There is enough toxin in one pufferfish to kill 30 adult humans, and there is no known antidote.

Perversely, it is precisely the pufferfish’s toxin that makes them, called fugu, considered a delicacy in Japan, where the fish is extremely expensive and only prepared by trained, licensed chefs who know that one bad cut means almost certain death for a customer. In fact, many such deaths occur annually.

Writing in 2017, a contributor to Quora, who lived in Tokyo and was treated by his professor to fugu in a restaurant, said a meal of fugucosts around 6000 yen [US$57] per head including small desert and sake,” but sometimes “the price can reach up to several thousand yens in auctions”.

Today is our Guardian Angels’ feast day!

Today is the feast day of our Guardian Angels!

A 2007 Harris poll found that 74% of U.S. adults believed in angels.

How do we know that each of us has a guardian angel? Because Jesus tells us so!

“See that you despise not one of these little ones: for I say to you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father who is in heaven.” -Matthew 18:10

The word “angel,” in Greek is angelos, in Hebrew is malach, in Arabic is mala’ika– which all mean “messenger.”

Angels are incorporeal (without body, material form or substance) spiritual beings who can assume bodily form. They act as messengers and intermediaries between God and humanity. St. Augustine said that although angels are defined by their function as messengers or message-bearers, their activities are not limited to just this function. Messenger is one of their functions, not their nature.

St. Thomas Aquinas maintained that each angel is unique, a species unto itself — truly a mind-boggling idea. (J.R.R. Tolkien, a devout Catholic, probably had angels in mind when he fashioned the Ents, who are each a species unto itself.) That means each angel is truly an individual, with his own personality and quirks. This may explain why some guardian angels are pro-active, while others seem not to be.

Major philosophers — such as the great medieval theologian Thomas Aquinas (1225-1274), René Descartes (1596-1650), John Locke (1632-1704), and most recently, the American philosopher Mortimer Adler (1902-2001) — offered compelling reasoning for the existence of angels. (For the conversion of Adler, a Jew, see “A philosopher-pagan comes home: The conversion of Mortimer Adler“.)

Theologians maintain there is a hierarchy of angels, their belief stemming from allusions in both the Old and New Testaments (Genesis 3:24; Isaiah 6:1-7; Ezekiel 1, 10; Romans 8:38; Ephesians 1:21, 3:10, 6:12; Colossians 1:16, 2:10, 2:15) to “seraphim,” “cherubim,” “thrones,” “dominions,” “mights,” “powers” and “principalities” in the “heavenly places.”

Dionysius the Areopagite and St. Thomas Aquinas delineated three hierarchies of angels, and three orders within each hierarchy, totaling nine orders in all:

  • 1st hierarchy: Seraphim, Cherubim, Thrones.
  • 2nd hierarchy: Dominions, Virtues, Powers.
  • 3rd hierarchy: Principalities, Archangels, Angels.

Of the nine angelic orders, five are sent by God for external ministry among bodily creatures, as indicated by their names of Virtues, Powers, Principalities, Archangels, and Angels—all of which refer to some kind of administrative or executive office. Of these five orders, only the last three minister to human beings (which implies that the other two orders minister to non-human bodily creatures, like animals?):

  • Principalities are in charge of the whole of humanity.
  • Archangels minister to nations — their leaders and those persons whom God tasks with special work to do on Earth.
  • Angels, the last order, are God’s messengers to and guardians of individual human beings.

According to St. Thomas Aquinas, a guardian Angel is appointed by God’s loving providence to each human being from the moment of birth because “the dignity of human souls is great.”

Throughout the lives of “changeable and fallible” human beings, their guardian angels assist them toward goodness. Although the guardians never fail or forsake their human charges, they eschew interfering with Divine providence or with our free will to commit sin, if we so choose, and to suffer punishment.

When I see a drunk or derelict sleeping on a bus bench or curled up in a street corner, I can’t help but wonder how very sad their guardian angels must be. Imagine what it must be like to be the guardian angel of a serial killer . . . .

In Summa Theologica, St. Thomas also wrote that at the end of a human being’s earthly life, the guardian angel of the virtuous person will be replaced with an angelic companion because the guardian’s mission will have been successfully discharged. What a wondrous thought — that our guardian Angel who has known and loved us all our lives will be our friend and companion through all eternity!

But the wicked in Hell “will have a fallen angel [or demon] to punish him” for eternity. Let that thought sink in . . . .

My husband, James, who passed away a year and a month ago, was blessed to have encountered his guardian angel (see “We have no nurse named Benjamin“). James spent the three years before he passed in a quality assisted care facility where he continued to write each day, and succeeded in publishing three books. He said he felt his angel’s presence and companionship all the time. There were times when he almost fell but didn’t, propped up by an invisible hand.

How his angel, Benjamin, must love him.

I believe James finally saw his angel face-to-face, and the two are wandering the Universe together.

Just because we can’t see them doesn’t mean our guardian angels aren’t with us all the time. In fact, there are many stories of angelic encounters and assistance. See, for example:

My days are so busy with writing and family-, house- and garden-work that the only time when my mind is at rest is when I walk in the hills. On one such walk some years ago, I talked to my guardian angel and humbly asked him to show me he’s there. Instantly, I felt his presence walking alongside me, on my right. I can’t tell you what he looks like (he is a bodiless spirit after all), but what I felt was his staggeringly-profound LOVE — a love that is unconditional and wholly unearned, the depths of which I have never, and will never, experienced from any human.


Here’s a simple prayer to our guardian Angels, by St. Bonaventure (1221-1274):

Angel of God, my guardian dear,
to whom His Love commits me here,
ever this day be at my side,
to light and guard,
to rule and guide. Amen.

Some questions to ask yourself:

  1. How is my relationship with my guardian angel?
  2. Do I listen to him?
  3. Do I bid him good day in the morning?
  4. Do I tell him: “Guard me while I sleep”?
  5. Do I speak with him?
  6. Do I ask for his advice?

Talk to your Guardian Angel!

He loves you very, very much, more than you’ll ever know.

Tell him you love him.

And thank your Guardian Angel today and every day — for watching over and protecting you, and for loving you in spite of ourselves.
