Those of you who have been following me for some time know that I don’t limit myself to art appreciation. Sometimes I also give you lifesaving information that for some reason is no longer common knowledge. I only hope you help me spread the word. Who knows how many lives we have already saved. This time, lets have a look at the Cockatrice. It is an animal that is often described in medieval bestiaries but not always correctly. You see, it is easily mistaken for a Basilisk and sometimes they are seen as the same beast. But do not be fooled. If you mistake a Basilisk for a Cockatrice or vice versa, it is most likely the last mistake you ever make. A Cockatrice, like a Basilisk, hatches from an egg laid by a cock. It is a mixture of a snake and rooster. The difference is that this egg is incubated by a toad (instead of a dungheap. I assume you learn these life-hacks of mine by heart. Imagine having to scroll all through these posts to find out what to do when faced with one of these monsters. So I also assume you know your Basilisk defence strategies). If you happen on a toad on an egg the best thing you can do is toss it over your house, but make sure it never touches the house. If you meet an adult Cockatrice, run away. Its look can kill, touching it is lethal and its breath is said to smell really really bad. You could release your weasel, and then you can observe it can withstand the deadly glare of the beast. Your weasel will not kill it though. If it tries to fight it it will die from the Cockatrices deadly skin. So then you know not to pull a bag over its head. Instead you could pull out your rooster, because the crow is said to kill it. Better yet, hold a mirror in front of it, that will kill it for sure.

While the front side of these Survival Blankets use the same high-quality metallic layer found in hospital Mylar blankets, the back-side is coated with our patent-pending Woodland Shrowd pattern. Like Army camo, this pattern is designed to help keep you hidden in forest and tundra themed environments.
Laugh, cry and cheer as we follow Teresa Walker on one of her incredible rescue missions transporting dogs/cats from kill shelters in the Central Valley to loving rescues in the Bay Area. (Link in bio) Over the years she’s saved over 12,000 furry lives and driven over 400,000 miles. Unfortunately, after all those miles driven, her old van died, forcing her to rent a van every week which has been a huge drain on her already limited resources. So please watch/share/like and if you can spare a donation to her go fund me that would be wonderful! (Search “No Paws Left Behind Needs Help” on #gofundme )

Today marks 5 years since burying my second puppy. And my first only 2 weeks before her. Five calendars ago, on this very day, Bella decided I was her person. I've had a lot of really awesome things happen to me in my life but absolutely nothing compares to that dog picking me. The dog that was scared of her own shadow, couldn't climb stairs, had never been on my side of the house, hadn't a clue which room was mine somehow found herself on my taller than average bed. This is where I found her. Certainly she didn't do that on her own. I convinced myself she had an accomplice. Though he swore up and down he played no part, he was kind of my human version of Bella. He always had my back and was always taking care of me even when I didn't realize. So for a very long time I doubted that he didn't plan the whole thing. Except she never left. I ran away for a week with Nova. And when we returned, she was still there. For nearly 5 years, her love never wavered. She picked me and she saved me. That's the magical thing about dogs. They feel far more than we realize and mend parts we didn't recognize as broken.
