“Sunshine Award” Blog Award … for “It Is What It Is”!


~February 10, 2014~

My dear friend Carina over at the blog http://telania.wordpress.com/om/ … Wolf is my Soul …. has nominated “It Is What It Is” for this award.

Please visit her awesome spot.

This is information about Carina:  “In her own words“:


“I live in Sweden with my partner and our three dogs. I love nature and animals and I’m passionate about animal welfare and establishing animal rights, especially in nations that do not have any such laws implemented as of yet. Once Sweden was known for having excellent animal welfare laws but today my country has fallen behind many other nations. We need to upgrade old regulations and laws to tighten protection for animals even more. I also love wildlife, in particular wolves, and I find it heart-breaking that so many countries are decimating their wolf populations, my own country included.”


Seems that Carina and I have share several common interests. I also love nature and animals. I have posted some information about animal welfare and animal abuse. The main connection is her interest in wolves. This is a new interest that I have started to develop.

I’m happy to say that I “belong” to a “wolf pack”.

Thanks to Shaun Gibson, Patty Wijnants-van Delft, Eddie Tatro and Jade Reyner … my main group of bloggers who I’ve met through this wonderful web we weave.
