Uncomplicated thoughts: The Gentle

The gentle people exist and thrive… The Gentle Barn…they save and bring back to life abused animals…the animals then give hope and inspiration to children with the same stories.  Find Dudley and you’ll never forget him.

Golden…it’s all golden…

No dog paws in the Red Fox White House but Van Buren was given a pair of tiger cubs by the Sultan of Oman…the cubs stayed with Red for a short period of time and then off to the zoo they went.  Bet they were beauties…
