Earth Day 2021: Restore Our Earth #EarthDay

 Today is the 51st celebration of Earth Day!

From the Earth Day Website: Climate change and other environmental degradations have broken our natural systems, leading to new and fatal diseases as well as a breakdown of the global economy. But just as climate change and coronavirus painfully remind us of the harm we’ve caused, Restore Our Earth reminds us of the opportunities that lay ahead.

  Every day on our walks Mom and I see beautiful things.  Plants,  trees and flowers, even bunnies and ducks. We must do our best to protect and restore our Earth so we can continue to enjoy the beauty that exists on all of our walks.  In honor of this most important day, I wanted to share some photos that Mom and I took on my regular morning walk in our complex this past Monday.


READY? HERE WE GO!!!








Mom loves willow trees. She said when she was a little girl (5 yrs old),  she used to stand under one in her backyard in Pittsburgh and sing "Johnny Angel." Mom is quite old, so if you aren't familiar with that song, you aren't old, if you DO know that song, my apologies!! BOL!



The two photos of the stream below are right near our condo. It is in our back courtyard. Dakota used to love to walk there with Mom, especially last Spring.  He met a nice lady named Ruthie who plants flowers and trees there. So far I haven't met Ruthie, but I am hoping to meet her soon!



"We must Restore Our Earth not just because we care about the natural world, but because we live on it. Every one of us needs a healthy Earth to support our jobs, livelihoods, health & survival, and happiness. A healthy planet is not an option — it is a necessity."

WE MUST ALL DO OUR PART!!

ONE WAY TO DO THAT IS TO
PICK UP YOUR POOP!!
(OR TRY TO EAT IT AS I AM KNOWN TO DO)


The photo above is one of MANY "Dog Stations" we have at our complex. Dakota used to get excited to visit them. I like to bark at them. You never know when some poop is going to try and escape and attack you, so you MUST bark at the poop so it doesn't jump out!!


That's my story and I'm sticking to it!! Hoping you enjoyed this glimpse into my morning walk!!!! Have a happy Earth Day!!!

Sending you rowdy licks and love!!!

Levi

  1. Happy Earth Day! You live in such a beautiful complex! The biped thinks she could tolerate adjoining housing if it were in such a pretty area (unlike this complex, but we won't go there).

    We're not sold on eating poop, Levi, but hey, whatever works for you! :-D

    1. it's prettier when all of the flowers that they plant are blooming but they haven't bloomed yet. OMG about Levi, we are soooooo praying he outgrows it (Vet thinks he will), I have to pull his leash sooooooo close to me when picking up poop because he tries to get it. Dogs......I'll tell ya!! Happy Earth Day! xoxo

  9. Nature is full of beauty! I think Levi is just trying to save you having to pick up the poop by disposing of it for you.

  12. That's such a lovely area to walk in. So is our neighborhood, but we have coyotes and bobcats sometimes, so my human leaves me at home when she goes walking! Happy Earth Day!

  13. What beautiful trees and flowers and places to walk.....you are lucky Levi that you can go for walks with your Mom and enjoy all that beauty up close. Humans can be real slobs sometimes but when you find a pristine and beautiful spot where they are taking care of things, you realize what a REALLY REALLY beautiful planet we occupy! Hopefully it will stay that way. You are a most handsome boy Levi - soon you will have girl doggies following you around I bet.

    Hugs, Teddy

  14. It looks beautiful there were you are living. Here things are not in bloom quite yet. Don't eat the poop, that is a bad idea.

  25. These are all beautiful things to see during a walk for sure. Dad learned a related saying some time ago: "Live simply so that others may simply live". Hmmm, jumping attack poop, huh?

  26. I just love it when the trees bloom, and the leaves start to come out, it makes all look so lacy and delicate.

    Don't feel too bad, Levi, MJF used to bark and cringe at light pole bases if they had boxes beside them, they kind of hum...he thought there were aliens or something in them, BOL!!

    If everyone does their part, our earth would be much happier, indeed!

    1. OMG too funny!! I was literally just telling Lenny that Levi was barking at a large power box that is free standing by one of the apartments at the front of our complex. He barked his head off!
