Pet Karma

Part of my mental journey of last year was a leap into the past.  When I was a youngster I was allowed most any pet I desired.  At times the pet might not have the nicest life...notably the little father mouse who was put into the cellar and went blind.  My mental journey was about acknowledging my wrong doing to some of these little creatures.  Even as little children there are Karmic consequences to our lack of responsibility or fulfillment of duty.  I spent a few days or weeks reviewing the different relationships and the lives of the sentient creatures in my care.  They were not all from childhood.  As an adult I still have had challenges.  I recently had to return my dog to the shelter as the apartment complex would not allow him.

Bonnie was my parents first dog and was part of the family when I was born.  She was a bull terrier as was Maud.

I got Jenny when I was 12 and had her for 17 years.  She was a jin or a guiding angel spirit dog.

My mother named King Arthur the toad I brought in from the wild.  I kept him in a terrarium for several years and fed him meal worms bought at the pet store(during the winter)  Earth worms were the diet of choice the rest of the year. The guppy was kept in a plexiglas cube.

The mice were a lesson in mammalian reproduction.  I left the father in the basement and eventually he became blind.  My father and I flushed him down the toilet. :-/  We were surprised by the presence of the newborn guinea pig.

Arthur ate the chameleon .  Sybil lived for many years
