Early this morning , Lama Shehadeh Tazami from Al Doha, Bethlehem, called us to rescue a small dog hit by a car. The puppy was almost 4 months , hit by a car and left in the middle of the street. We told Lama to ask somone's help to move the puppy to the side road until we come. We came and found the puppy in difficult condition, blood coming out her nose and her eyes are full of blood. We sent the dog in a taxi to a clinic in Jerusalem,where the she got fluid,medicine,and observation since her condition wasn't stable and had severe dehydration .The dog needs more tests and treatment, please urgent help is needed to cover her treatment at the clinic. Whoever wants to help, please donate to her file at Abu Ghosh vet clinic phone number 0545613377, 0723224769 .Thank you
We thank Lama, her husband and the people who help in moving her off the road.
Irresponsibility in driving causes death to many creatures among animals, which consequently causes damage, pain and of course high cost covering the treatment .
تلقينا صباح هذا اليوم اتصالاً من السيدة لما شحادة تزامي تعلمنا عن وجود كلب في وسط الطريق وقد دعسته سيارة. طلبنا منها أن تطلب من المارة وضع الكلب على طريق آمن بعيداً عن الشارع وتسقيه الماء لغاية أن نحضر لمساعدته. وجدنا ان الجروة تبلغ من العمر الاربعة أشهر وفي حالة حرجة عيناها مليئتان بالدم وايضاً أنفها ونفسها ضعيف. تم نقلها بسيارة الى عيادة بالقدس وتتلقى حالياً السوائل والعلاج كونها في حالة جفاف قوية. نشكر السيدة لما وزوجها والناس الذين قاموا بنقل الجروة لطرف الطريق .
الجروة بحاجة الى مساعدة فوضعها حرج وبحاجة لمزيد من صور الاشعة والعلاج، فمن يرغب بمساعدتها الاتصال بالعيادة على الارقام التالية : 0545613377 و 0723224769 . شكراً
الاستهتار بالارواح يسبب الموت للكائنات الحية منها الحيوانات التي تتعرض للدهس يومياً دون الاكتراث بأن حياتها ايضاً لها ثمن هذا ويتسبب أيضاً بمخاسر مادية لمن يقوم بمعالجتها.

They do a good job of explaining the news.

.....................................

Diana George Babish is a lady who lives in Bethlehem.  She has an animal shelter for dogs.  There are very many dogs who live on their own in this area of the world.

She is working very hard to try and find homes for these animals.  They are all very clean and friendly.  She has kennels ready for transport and all of the papers needed to take one home.

Sometimes in the area dogs are poisoned or just abandoned. 
Diana and her friend Sabrina talking about her animal shelter.

They are hungry and thirsty and in need of health care.

This lady spends her day trying to care for these creatures and in the night she often receives calls to go and pick up another dog in need of her help.

Can you help this lady in any way?

Can you get a dog.

One can fly to Tel Aviv from the UK for about 250 dollars on a discount flight.

Here is a little more information about her and a link to her facebook page:

Karl Rove: My Mom’s Suicide Was Preventable


My Mom’s Suicide Was Preventable

The deaths of Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain remind us that there is help.

My Mom’s Suicide Was Preventable
PHOTO: GETTY IMAGES/ISTOCKPHOTO
I didn’t know Kate Spade or Anthony Bourdain but saw familiar threads in their suicides, as my mother took her own life at age 51.
Spade had spoken to her father the night before and was looking forward to a trip to California. Bourdain was in one of his favorite countries, France, working on his television show. My mother, struggling through her third and failing marriage, had arrived at a plan to get back on her feet, supported by friends and family.
People were shocked when Spade and Bourdain hanged themselves, she in her New York apartment, he in a hotel room in Strasbourg. No one saw it coming when—a day after expressing optimism about her future—my mother drove into the desert, connected a hose to her pickup’s exhaust pipe, strung it through the cab’s back window and died of carbon-monoxide poisoning.
Spade left a note, reportedly telling her 13-year-old daughter it wasn’t her fault. My mother wrote a letter, expressing pride in her five children, telling her grandchildren she loved them, and absolving her family for her decision.
These final messages won’t assuage the irrepressible sense of guilt and shame that family and friends feel after a suicide: I should have known. If only I had paid attention. I should have done something.
Except you aren’t responsible. Suicide is the most personal, solitary decision a human being can make. Whether the culmination of a long decline or a shock like a thunderbolt on a clear day, suicide is often driven by depression, anxiety, drug addiction or other mental disorders. Yet it is among the most preventable causes of death in the U.S. today.
Shortly after I wrote about my mother’s death in a memoir, I received a gracious email from David Axelrod. We had never met, but it turned out we had more in common than working in the White House, he for Barack Obama and I for George W. Bush. David’s father died by suicide when David was 19, and police came to his college dorm room to ask him to identify the body.
David later wrote a beautiful tribute to his father, offering the insight that his dad “was impacted by the sense, so prevalent in our society, that depression is somehow a character flaw rather than an illness.” He believes that’s what kept his father, a psychologist, from seeking help, along with many others.
Spade talked about a continuing sadness, family members said. My mother wrote in her suicide note that she was “very tired, deep inside tired.” A study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that many people resorted to suicide after problems in a relationship, or amid stress over work, physical health or finances. Substance abuse is also a major trigger. Such challenges may bring on depression or make an underlying depression worse.
The stigma surrounding mental illness keeps many with depression from seeking treatment. Who would refuse treatment for any other life-threatening disease if a physician could say: “We’ve caught it in time, we can deal with it and you don’t need to die from it”?
On the practical front, anyone who feels suicidal should ask for help before taking an action from which there is no return. The number for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is 1-800-273-TALK (8255). Veterans can then dial 1. People are available 24 hours a day. The website SpeakingOfSuicide.com offers important resources. If you or someone you know feels suicidal, talk to a doctor or mental-health professional. Call family, clergy or friends. Dial 911 if necessary.
The smart woman from Kansas City with a wonderful smile created joy for many with her stylish, sophisticated handbags. The tall cook with curly gray hair and a jutting jawline introduced millions to the world’s food and drink. We know their stories, but must not forget that 863 other Americans—most of them less famous, but no less valuable as human beings—died by suicide last week too, according to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
–– ADVERTISEMENT ––
To those who contemplate suicide, realize the world won’t be better for your absence. There will be a child, spouse or parent, a colleague or co-worker, neighbor or friend who will miss you more than you know. Despair can be overwhelming, but it is not permanent. We all need others to walk beside us in difficult moments. And remember, you are precious in the eyes of God and those who love you.
Mr. Rove helped organize the political-action committee American Crossroads and is the author of “The Triumph of William McKinley ” (Simon & Schuster, 2015).

Richard Varley was in the water for 4 hours before he was rescued.


The news that the Hornet sank came across the radio one time and his mother heard the announcement and then there was no further information for several hours.

Baby Red Tail Hawks: Morley Field Dog Park, Balboa Park, San Diego

At the dog park:





Hard to see the birds but there were three in the nest.



The nest at the dog park has been there for several years.  Every day the birds put on a show learning to fly.



The lady love:
Coco the dog came from Mexico where she lived on her own.  She was stabbed and then she was rescued by Negar and Judy from Paws4Thought Animal Rescue in Bonita.

We are best friends now.


Recently visiting Palestine and noticing there are quite a few stray dogs in need of assistance.

There is a lady in Bethlehem and she is working very hard to help them.

Her name is Diana George Babish and she has an animal shelter there with very many lovely dogs that need homes.

Can you go over to Tel Aviv and pick one up.  It is actually cheaper than shipping them as cargo and Diana can easily provide all of the papers and a kennel.

Or just help to get the word out.

Their hardships are magnified by political and physical isolation.

here is a link to more info about them including her facebook page:


Thanks for reading......if anyone has any ideas about helping Diana please offer you suggestions.
