Poor Donkey

After we took this picture while in Tijuana, I found out later that these poor animals are left to stand nearly all day long so that tourists like me could take photos. Talk about cruelty to animals!  I had no idea.

Now that I look at the picture, the poor animal was also painted with stripes. How unkind mankind can be!  It is a reminder to me that we need to be kind to animals and mankind.

This was taken on our trip to San Diego back in 1999 just before my daughter left on her mission to Ireland for two years. We had a one day trip to Tijuana and I had wished that I could leave Mexico as fast as the road runner would.  We heard gunshots and it scared us so much that I will never go back there again.

My friend is doing a give-a-way; her blog is Marmalade and Catmint.  This is a link to her blog.

It is a lovely picture of your daughter, but now that I look at the donkey and read your blog I feel sorry for all of the animals that are exploited. Thanks for the reminder we all need to be kind to humans and animals.

Don't you hate it that people treat animals like that! Always good to spread the word.

Also, wanted you to know that the earrings arrived today. I'm very pleased with the earrings and the pretty packaging! :-)
