Love is ….

About The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap

The year 1895 was filled with memorable historical events: the Dreyfus Affair divided France; Booker T. Washington gave his Atlanta address; Richard Olney, United States Secretary of State, expanded the effects of the Monroe Doctrine in settling a boundary dispute between the United Kingdom and Venezuela; and Oscar Wilde was tried and convicted for "gross indecency" under Britian's recently passed law that made sex between males a criminal offense. When the news of Wilde's conviction went out over telegraphs worldwide, it threw a small Nevada town into chaos. This is the story of what happened when the lives of its citizens were impacted by the news of Oscar Wildes' imprisonment. It is chronicle of hatred and prejudice with all its unintended and devastating consequences, and how love and friendship bring strength and healing. Paulette Mahurin, the author, is a Nurse Practitioner who lives in Ojai, California with her husband Terry and their two dogs--- Max and Bella. She practices women's health in a rural clinic and writes in her spare time. All profits from her book are going to animal rescue, Santa Paula Animal Shelter, the first and only no-kill shelter in Ventura County, CA, where she lives.

    Thank you so much for introducing me to so many wonderful bloggers who have a deep respect for our fellow creatures that roam the world with us. When compared to the unwavering love of a dog, or the ability of one animal species to embrace the young of other another, I have begun to wonder why we consider ourselves superior….

    This was just adorable – thanks for the reblog P!
    My sister had a Pitt that looked exactly like that one – looks to be similar in temperament as well 🙂

    • All that I know of that breed is loving and great. They’re historically known as babysitters. That they have run afoul by maltreatment and gotten a bad rap is pathetic. My husband and I have been rescuing rottweiler for the past 28 years because of a similar bad rap they’ve gotten and because they, along with pit bulls are targeted for euthanizing once turned into shelters. This sweatheart of a dog and his kitty friend are just too incredible not to share. I bet your sister has endless hours of joy with hers. 🙂

  7. The video warmed my heart. Thanks, Paulette.
    My daughter had a black male cat first, an adult. Then she and her main squeeze bought a baby poodle. The cat liked giving the puppy a bath. Puppy was good at taking but not returning the favour. They used to spoon. It was awesome to see.
