Recycling Pets

When you think about recycling you usually think first about aluminum soda cans, newspapers, glass bottles; that kind of stuff.  But then I got to thinking, hey, maybe this could be extended even farther.  Let me give you an example.  This past winter, we had to put down one of our dogs.  She was around 12 years old, a Rottweiler mix named Molly.  The most gentlest dog you could ever find.  Molly had a mass growing in her stomach and hip dysplasia.

Reminding Family to Recycle

My son, who lives in Los Angeles, visited us for Easter.  Now I foolishly assumed that everyone from California was really into recycling and I’m sure many are.  I found myself periodically going into our trash and pulling out the plastic, glass and aluminum bottles he routinely threw into it with nary a thought about recycling.  When we visit him in California, he is pretty good about separating his trash from his recycling but when he travels (which is often) he also apparently goes on a recycle holiday.  I guess it’s time for one of those father son talks, no, not tha
