Conversations with two people today led me to a long bout of thinking about people and personalities. What makes us tick? What catches our eye? What claims our attention, draws our finances, and causes us to make decisions - both good and bad?

As my favorite day of the year approaches, I am aware of how easily we could over look Thanksgiving this year. What do we have to be thankful for today?  Many express their discontent and dissatisfaction with everything from our history to their hysteria. Many, around the world, want to blow up everything and to kill people they do not know in order to protest their dissatisfaction with the way the world is going. Many want to express love for their “God” by hurting, killing or attacking those who have done nothing worse then being different.

Sienna the chocolate lab

Sienna is a young adult female chocolate lab and weighs about 45 pounds. Sienna has been at the shelter since late October and is such a sweet dog that we cannot believe no one has adopted her. She has a wonderful personality, loves the water and enjoys play-time. She is curious and gets along with other dogs. She is tired of the cold concrete floor and yearns for a soft bed. Sienna would be the perfect dog for a hike or camping, or long walks on the beach. If you are looking for love and a loyal companion, Sienna is waiting for you!

The Houston Zoo’s four-month-old jaguar cubs made their debut Thursday, Nov. 9. The male, Fitz, and female, Emma, were born to first-time parents Maya and Tesoro on July 20 and have spent the past few months behind-the-scenes bonding with mom. The pair can be seen exploring their habitat with mom most mornings, and have access to be out of public view in their night house or caves if they choose. Fitz and Emma are the first jaguars born at the Houston Zoo in 12 years. The jaguar range covers South and Central America, with some venturing north into Mexico and the southwestern U.S.
