Life without limits…
Life maybe full of loss and pain,
but always free of fear…
Life where the sky is only an open door
to your own endless universe…
No stops and no doubts on the way,
faster than light, higher than haven…
and it´s your own hurting heart which is the key to your brightest happiness…

One sad true story…

A street puppy sick with sarna. By ViktoryiaN.

A street puppy sick with sarna. By ViktoryiaN.

This little dog was found in one of Callao streets and taken home by one kind peruvian man. The puppy had a hard form of sarna / mange and was already very weak. The man felt very sorry for the puppy, and was ready to fight for its life. Unfortunatly it was too late.
The dog died the next day after receiving his first injection with the medicine against sarna.
That´s right where a short story of the puppy´s life ends. And none will ever know where his story actually began.

Sarna / mange is not the only disease the street animals have to fight. But everything is possible to be cured if we only give our strong human hands to the little fighters!

This dog was found by Graciela on the local market. It has received 2 injections against sarna already, and he´s still alive. The pet needs his medicines and treatment, while other street dogs need vaccines. And we all can help them simply donating one sol to fight sarna and other animal´s diseases!

The life around here goes too fast or too slow and nothing in the middle.

Sometimes I´m run out of time, so I don´t manage to do all the planned stuff, another day I feel tired already before dinner and wish that that day could be divided into two shorter ones. Well…
Life is so confusing over here… I see an innocent human being, kind and loving, then just in a moment it turns to be humanly evil, spoiled with hate and arrogance.
Here good life is all about good luck. So when one has it all, the other one enjoys the rests.
And that´s the way life goes over here. Day by day… Night after night…

I stuck in the cage between the ground and the sky. And as all other mortals I´m offered only one way out of here: deep under the ground and high over the sky. What´s there?
Unknown doesn´t scare me. Actually the only ting that bothers me is why can´t we send letters from this other unknown place…
Obviously watching the world´s “simple life” from the heaven´s mezzanine, being already wise and experiences, on could write to the yet mortal ones about all the mistakes once committed and all the wrong choices once taken. While the mortals could learn from those who lived here before…
Who knows, maybe the living itself would get a little more simple, the relationship wouldn´t get that complicated and so people would be happier…
People need to be happier!

Today when human kind has become an often guest out there in the space, the question of personal realationship is still known as the most complicated one.
If it´s family, friends, lovers, marrige… Whenever two people get close…
So we love, hate, care, break up, feed, cure and fight again. It takes time and effort for two individuals to get close, still tha happiness for couple of us is not always reachable.
As many examples prove the happy ending doesn´t depend on how beautiful, smart, kind, generally great or not people are, as it doesn´t really matter how rich, educated, successful or not one person is.

Then what does it take to become happy in relationships?
a. Simply Love
b. Hard work
c. Passion and Romance
d. Friendship and Respect

What is the key to happy You and Me?
a. Attraction
b. Trust and Honesty
c. Common sence of Humor and Acceptance
d. …love?

Does the fact of being happy now, means “forever happy”?

Isn´t unknowability the charm of life itself?
Our destiny is not always in our hands, but we all can choose to be happy, I guess.

In the end… my sister once read somewhere one wise thought:

“Life is what is going on
while you are busy making other plans”.

We just got to LIVE IT!!!

… while laying in bed at 6 in the morning: let myself stay there an unpredictable “longer” and being predictable or struggle myself out of bed and meet the sunrise. So I did. And I remembered once again that I love Callao at 6 in the morning. Actually it´s the only hour in a day when it makes sence to be awoken. Then the market opens for the crowd and the busses cross the avenue every 30 seconds, the world becomes so noisy, that I can barealy hear my own thoughts.
At 6 in the morning Callao is different. The night smell of the rotten fish from the ocean already left the area, and just before the smell of gasoline mixes up with the smell of recently killed chickens, there is a moment of fresh clean air, so I spoiled myself a little standing outside on the balcony with the cap of coffee watching the workers from the market falling into their daily routine. Just in a moment the same market in front of the house will become a noisy scary crowd, where it is so easy to get lost and in a hurry of the survival to forget that you are a human…

Yesterday was one of those days when I had to make a daily choice of being a man or being a human.

These two where left in a plastic bag in front of our house yesterday afternoon…

Two of those who world doesn´t miss...

Two of those who world doesn´t miss...

As we (my husband and me) found them, we had a choice to keep on walking or try to help them, since there is a little hope that someone else here will stop. And so we did… We spend the whole afternoon with those kids playing with them, feeding them and doing dry wash. Unfortunatly we couldn´t take them inside of the house where we live now. So we gave them to our neighbor, where they will stay until we find new families for them.

Who could ever leave him out there alone?...

Who could ever leave him out there alone?...

People are surprisingly cruel. Nothing breakes there hearts made of stone any longer. Then what about the hope for a better world? As for me.. I manage to keep it alive only at 6 in the morning, and I don´t wake up that early every day…

The big ladies (well, not me) were also once left on the market without food, water or care...

…life over here has become very intense. Our life over here is not about us. Right now all our free time is dedicated to the idea of changing… if not the world, at least some of its precious lives.
This work and dedication demands lots of energy. And sometimes, while feeling tired, I slightly wish I was one of those who didn´t care. But I´m still here. We are still here. And hopefully once we´ll be able to appreciate the results of the work we´ve been doing these days.
So far with the help of good people, we enjoy watching little good changes heppening in the daily routine of the once forgotten on the street. And right now I´m talking about peruvian animals.
It has been almost one mounth since our facebook group Ayuda a los Animales Peruanos! Help Peruvian Animals! was created, and the results of its work are very impressive. We have got lots of support from the members, a few dogs found new families, Graciela received many donations, so their life has been easier now. We hope that we´ll keep receiving this important support and help. Actually we want the group keep growing, because then there is a little hope that one day the streets in Peru will be pain-free…
We have already found more ways to help peruvian animals. It´s also very important to change the collective mentality here in Lima and other poor arias of Peru. We´ll keep on working on it! And w´ll manage it with your help!
We want to thank everyone, who has been with us since the very beginning, and we hope for the same support and interest fathere with our project! 🙂
Now about the latest news from the group activity!

Here in the group album we keep the pictures of all the dogs which are looking for their new caring families, as well as we keep the page updated with the pictures of the members who gave us their donations, helped Graciela and the pets. On the last weekend of May we received enough food donations to feed the dogs for 1 week! Graciela also got food for dogs from ASPPA!
Enough food = Full dogs = Glad dogs = Less fights 🙂
Besides that on the 1 of June we received the very first donacion from abroad!

Angela Milla-Lauridsen send us 35$! Thank you so much for your support, Angela! Here is what you did for peruvian street animals! :)

The dogs from the market (most of them where simply left here when they were small yet) got extra food and dry shower with pesticide. The last wan´t very easy for us, since the dogs have got little trust on people.

This puppy has got amazing eyes. You can find his pics in the group album. He lives in the street now, but hopefully we´ll find a family for him!

Some of Forgotten Children of Peru. All of them were once left to die... But they are living today! And hopefully one day all of them will leave the market and find their own loving and caring family!

The sweet Princesa came to the market pregnant. She was very week and lost her babies. One of the guards from the market took care of her. She´s back on her feet now! She´s extremely loving, very funny and cute! Here Princesa is one day after she got her vaccines receiving a dry shower.

Besides that Graciela received a first necessities package and some nice food for herself, since everything she has she spends for her pets. She´s very greatful to Angela and other members of the group who gave her a hand! Please, stay with us! Together we can change the cruel reality!

P.S:
The member of our facebook group Angela is one of those dedicated people, who wants to make a difference! Today is the 10th of June and we still use some of the donacion we got from Angela! By the way here come the pictures of her and her babies, who she adopted and gave a whole new life to!
