Webcomic Wednesday No. 18!

This week’s #WebcomicWednesday is a little special. These comics are all classics, as in they are no longer updated, but that doesn’t mean you should go back and read them all straight through. These are three of my all-time favorite comics, no matter how many times I read them. Enjoy!

Hold On To Your Spark


Friendly Coyote 4 by Keowolf

“Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark, in the hopeless swamps of the approximate, the not-quite, the not-yet, the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish, in lonely frustration for the life you deserved, but have never been able to reach. Check your road and the nature of your battle. The world you desired can be won. It exists, it is real, it is possible, it is yours.” – Ayn Rand

Happy Fairy Day!

Me and Twig

According to my spiffy Twig the Fairy calendar, today is Fairy Day! If you know me, you know of my love for all things magical and fantastical and child-like. Twig (who you can see in the above picture – she’s on the left) is my favorite part of all the Renaissance Faires I attend and I always make it a point to find her. More often than not, she is surrounded by children with their parents standing just beyond the circle, oftentimes more awestruck of her than the kids.

Make sure you spread the love and happiness today. You can find out more about the beautiful Twig at her website, facebook, or twitter. Have a happy and glittery Fairy Day!

Webcomic Wednesday No. 17

Not only do we have today’s #WebcomicWednesday up, but I also have good news about my own comic. The Family Menagerie will be back in action with more scheduled comics starting July 5th. Oh happy day!

Living Deliberately.


Since 1893 by Nate Zeman

I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. ~Henry David Thoreau, 1854

(Plugging. Please click on Nate Zeman’s name – he is one of the best photographers I’ve ever seen. I’m in love with all his images.)

Happy Picard Day!

“Captain Picard Day is celebrated on June 16th because it is the equivalent date to Stardate 47457.1, mentioned in the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode entitled The Pegasus. In that episode, Captain Picard Day is an occasion for the Enterprise to host schoolchildren and show them what Starfleet is like.” – GeeksAreSexy.net

I don’t know about you, but I’ll use any excuse to celebrate that man that is Captain Jean-luc Picard. I will of course be spending the rest of the day listening to the Picard Song on repeat. What are you going to do?

Hitting the Big Time: Mashable!

So if you hadn’t heard, Snailbird recently made it into the popular online magazine Mashable. Now we’ve been featured in quite a few online articles and showcases, but I think it’s a safe bet that Mashable is the biggest and most well-read site that has given us a few visitors. And not just a few – our visitors and hits have gone through the roof! Thank you Mashable! Interested in the article? You can find Snailbird featured in 20 Resources for Displaying Twitter Updates. Check it out, comment, and adore our cute little twitter bird!

Light of Self-Discovery


The Light of Dusk by PrepareForImpact

“Being altruistic does not mean totally rejecting our own interest or neglecting ourselves, this is a misunderstanding. In fact, the kind of altruism that focuses on the well-being of others arises from a very courageous mind, an expansive attitude and a strong sense of self confidence – so much so that the person is capable of challenging the self-cherishing and self-centeredness that tends to rule our lives.” – His Holiness, the Dalai Lama

I Love Rescue Animals (Do You?)

We used to have to struggle to find content for our I Love Rescue Animals blog, but lately, it has come alive with entries not just from us, but from a couple of other people as well. One being the awesomely talented Chelsea Conlin who has taken it upon herself to do, what we like to call, Shelter Sketches. Check out that series – it’s cute and it’s helping animals.

We’ve also started doing Pet Parent Files where Ash and I do a video with tips on taking care of our many animals (if you lost count, we’re up to 23 now, two of which are fosters). It’s crazy, but we figured with our experience, people might be interested in what we do on a daily basis.

Even with the sudden influx of content, we’re always looking for guest posts. Want to tell a story about your rescue animal? Have a great rescue story you heard and feel we should discuss? Let us know and we’ll post it! Head over to ILoveRescueAnimals.org and fill out the content form telling us what you’re like to do or how you’d like to contribute. We look forward to hearing from you!
