New Documentary

I just now heard about a new cetacean documentary that came out in January, and I absolutely have to see it. It's called Blackfish, and is about Tilikum the captive orca and just captive dolphins and whales in general. I remember when I used to love SeaWorld, and a while ago, I made a pledge to never go back. I know that everybody says the animals are treated well, and I honestly am not 100% sure whether this is true or not, but I don't want to support any business that has captive cetaceans for the sheer joy of it (if they're rescued and being rehabilitated, that's different). I'm still proud of my decision to not participate in the dolphin interaction program in the Caribbean, and I will continue boycotting these kinds of situations.

Visit the IMDb page for Blackfish to watch the trailer and find more information about the documentary:

These websites were shared by a dog rescue page on Facebook, and I'm starting to become more convinced by all the talk of dangerous commercial pet foods. It's just very difficult to find good quality pet food that isn't ridiculously expensive. I personally think that we shouldn't have to pay so much in order to keep our beloved pets healthy, it's a bit odd if you ask me.

Ol' Roy is the main food that my family has fed my dogs for years, but I do not trust them anymore.
