Heartbreaker: sequinned sweater with faux-leather leggings, leather beanie, and a military-style parka

I know I’m all smiles in these photos, dear readers…but as an animal lover living here in Vancouver, there’ve been some news stories over the last couple of weeks that have definitely been tugging at my heartstrings.

The British Columbia branch of the SPCA has recently conducted two separate seizures totalling almost 150 horribly neglected dogs and cats…66 from a puppy mill on February 4th, and another 84 from a different breeding and boarding facility earlier this week.  🙁

There’s a whole lot of injustice and cruelty going on every day in this great wide world of ours – stuff that, quite honestly, often makes staying optimistic about my fellow humans pretty darn challenging.  But doing harm to animals??  There’s absolutely no doubt in my mind that there is something seriously wrong with anyone capable of that.

I’ll be making a donation to the BCSPCA this weekend to help out with the tens of thousands of dollars of medical care I know those poor pets will require; if you’re thinking you might like to make a contribution as well, please don’t hesitate to visit their website!!

    I went straight to the website and donated, Monika. You know how much I love animals and I can't for a second imagine anyone wanting to do anything but spoil them rotten with love like we do! Anyway, super cool look. I always want that sequin heart top when I see you wear it! Fabulous!

    Thanks for always support FFF! You're the BEST!

    OXOX
