Green is the colour of the day

My love for spring continues- with Green treasury on and with my ever lasting love of animals. 
Due to our life circumstances me and hubby are still separated, and yesterday was our wedding anniversary. I felt blue for whole day, missing my hubby terribly and the only thing that got me in my giggles was my 6 years old son and 3 years old Westie. Boys kept me busy, which inspired me to search for springy animal items from Etsy. Animals give you unconditional love, and they are honest with it too- cats will not love you unless they feel like it, dog will adore when you feed and cuddle them. And then I remembered the quote from
  Douglas Adams' The Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy:
 ~ It is an important and popular fact that things are not always what they seem.  For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much - the wheel, New York, wars and so on - whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time.  But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man - for precisely the same reasons.  ~

Maybe the key is to have a giggle, not to worry about what could happen and what should be, just hit the waves and live for full. Well, think about it 170,243,000 dolphins live on this world, and they just can not be wrong can they?

We hope that, when the insects take over the world, they will remember with gratitude how we took them along on all our picnics.  ~Bill Vaughan

If all the beasts were gone, men would die from a great loneliness of spirit, for whatever happens to the beasts also happens to the man.  All things are connected.  Whatever befalls the Earth befalls the sons of the Earth.  ~Chief Seattle of the Suquamish Tribe, letter to President Franklin Pierce

The difference between friends and pets is that friends we allow into our company, pets we allow into our solitude.  ~Robert Brault

After scolding one's cat one looks into its face and is seized by the ugly suspicion that it understood every word.  And has filed it for reference.  ~Charlotte Gray

Love all those great quotes, especially the one about scolding cats. I have three black cats and have to be careful I'm scolding the right one sometimes. :o)
