    Thank you, I enjoyed every word of it, nodding my head all the way through.

    OMG, those ASPCA ads break my heart and empty my wallet, but I've never regretted a dime given to helping animals, only wish I could give more. And I too recoil with horror when I read of acts of cruelty to animals. It's the whole idea of how out manned they are by the human race. It's never a fair fight.

    When I was a young woman I went to a bull fight in Mexico city because it was on the tour.  I was so sickened by it, I left after the first bull out of six. You'd never believe how beautiful that bull is when it prances into the ring, full of vigor, its coat shiny and glorious in the sun. Then the picadores come in on horse back, surround the bull and drill holes under its spine until that beautiful coat is covered with blood. Then, with the bull weakened substantially, the matador shows up.

    It's that lack of a fair fight, the inability for an animal to ever engage in a true match with a human that makes my heart sob sometimes. If you own a cat or dog or any pet, you understand just how dependent that critter is on you, on your love and kindness. The idea that anyone would betray that with senseless cruelty is repulsive to me.  Same thing goes for children btw, but that's a whole other sad story.

    And on that note, and the "cute" thing---I used to say to my husband when our son was a very rambunctious and mischievous toddler, "you know, if these little ones were ugly, hairy little monsters, you'd throw them right out the door and not look back."  But no, they are gorgeous with their chubby cheeks and their toothless grins, and you fall in love again every time you tuck them in.  BTW, LOVED your definition of "love at first sight."  Perfection.
