Once upon a time, in a very tall building, lived a bat. Her name was Butter. Butter the bat.

Butter the bat spent her days hanging upside down and doing bat things.

During the day, Butter the bat would sleep. But when the sun started to go down, she would fly down, down, down and out the window of the very tall building. After a long day of sleeping, Butter the bat was very thirsty! So thirsty! She had a favorite lake with the best water around, and she took a very long drink of water. It tasted so good!

But Butter the bat knew that other things tasted good too! After all, her name was Butter! Butter the bat happened to hang upside down in a very busy bakery, and she was very good at knowing what tasted the tastiest! She was very good at watching the bakers bake their pies and their bread and their scones. And she was very good at sampling the crumbs that dropped on the floor every night.

But one night when Butter the bat was supposed to fly out of the very tall building to find fruit to eat, and water to drink, she saw a basket of fruit on the table of the very busy bakery. The bakers had been so busy that they forgot to use all their fruit! Butter the bat knew just what she would do!

Butter the bat knew where the mixing bowls were. She knew where the flour was. She definitely knew where the butter was!

Butter the bat knew her time had finally come! She was going to bake a pie! But not just any pie. She was going to make many pies!

Butter the bat looked at the clock. She had just a few hours to bake because the bakers came to work very early in the morning. She got all her ingredients together after she had a snack. Oh, those sweet potatoes were good! That would be her first pie!

Then she saw cranberries and blueberries and more berries! This was fun!

Berries would make a delectable fruit pie! And a delectable fruit pie needed a delectable pie crust. So she added just a little more butter than usual. And then she added a little more again.

After baking and baking and baking, Butter the bat looked at the clock. It was almost time for the bakers to come to work. So she ate one pie and left the others on the table. That was the nice thing to do. And Butter the bat hoped they would like them. She really did!

When the busy bakers arrived in the morning, they couldn’t believe their eyes! There on the table was pie after pie after pie! There was a sweet potato pie, a berry pie, a peanut butter pie and a mystery pie. They tasted the mystery pie because it was so mysterious! It tasted like butter. As smooth as butter.

Butter the bat was asleep because she was a bat and it was daytime now. But in her dreams, she heard the conversations of people eating her pies! She heard them say how wonderful and buttery they were. She heard them talk about the mystery pie and how these pies were the best they had ever ate!

The very busy bakers were talking too! They wondered who had baked these wonderful pies. They wondered if this baker knew that they were the best baker in the building. Butter the bat heard that! Even in her dreams! The best baker in the building? That was her!

And so night after night, the busy bakers would leave ingredients on the counter for Butter. And she would bake! A sweet potato pie, a berry pie, a peanut butter pie and many butter pies! Customers would line up day after day after day to buy the pies that Butter baked! And word spread all around about the best pies in the building! Butter was very happy about this. Very happy!

One day, Butter the bat baked an especially delectable pie. This pie had peanut butter filling and pancakes for a crust! It was her own recipe! And word got out far and wide about this pie! Everyone wanted to try a piece! That’s when two dogs named Peanut Butter Brickle and Digby Pancake decided to come to the bakery. They traveled a very long distance to get a piece of this pie. And Butter the bat was very happy about this.

So she baked an extra special pie for Peanut Butter Brickle and Digby Pancake with a lot of extra love. And butter. She sat the pie on the counter with the other pies, but the bakers would know who the special pie was for. When Brickle and Digby came to the bakery that afternoon, they were ready! Ready for their pie! They had dreamed of this pie!

The bakers handed Brickle the pie because everyone knew Digby wouldn’t share. And as Brickle and Digby ate their first slice, they knew it. They knew this was the best pie they had ever eaten! They thanked the bakers and licked them and asked for the recipe! But the bakers told them that it was a secret. And a secret it was!

So that night, after Digby ate the last piece of pie, Brickle decided that since the pie recipe was so secret, he would try to look in the bakery windows to see how they made it. Yes. Yes! He had to do that! And as he gazed in the window, he saw the baker. The best baker in the building. Butter the bat! And she was singing!

My name is Butter the bat,

I’m the best baker around,

In this building, I hang upside down!

I wait till night falls

When the sun goes down

And I bake all the pies

That everyone loves,

Even the flies!

Now, not everyone is accustomed to seeing a bat bake a pie and sing. And not every bat that bakes a pie is used to a dog trying to steal her recipe. But it happened! And when Butter the bat saw Brickle looking in, she knew. Her secret was no longer a secret. She was the best baker in the building. Yes. Yes! It was her! What would he think?

With one look, Butter the bat asked Brickle to keep her secret. And with one bite of a special pie Butter the bat flew out to him, they agreed. To be the best at something is good. But BEING the best individual you can is better. Even better than butter. Butter the bat thought for a moment. It didn’t matter who was the secret baker or that she wasn’t going to get credit for baking the best pies in the building. What was important is that she was sharing her talents with others to make them happy.

And so for many days after that, and many months after that, and many years after that, the bakery left ingredients for Butter the bat. And Butter baked so many pies! She never got tired of baking pies or seeing everyone happy as they ate them.

Butter wasn’t just the best baker in the building. She was the best at making others happy.

And Peanut Butter Brickle, Digby Pancake and Butter the bat baked, ate pies and lived happily ever after.

Look for a new story the last day of each month in 2019!!

Once upon a time, in a lovely, lively and leafy Florida place campground, there lived a lizard. His name was Loco The Lounging Lizard.

It was a long name, but Loco was a long, lounging lizard!

Loco The Lounging Lizard spent his days doing what lizards do! He watched all the birds and animals around him, he soaked up the sunshiney, and he waited for food to come his way.

He had a very busy schedule in this lovely, lively and leafy Florida place campground!

But sometimes, Loco The Lounging Lizard just wanted to lounge! After all, he had to live up to his name. Work was good, but lounging was good too, and sometimes even better!

To have the best lounge, Loco knew he needed to find the best rock to lounge upon. All lizards who lounged needed the perfect rock! Not just any rock would do! So one day, Loco The Lounging Lizard made it his goal to find the most perfect rock! It had to be hard! The rock had to be warm! And the rock had to be long enough for Loco The Lounging Lizard!

Loco waited until the campground got quiet to look for the perfect rock. Loco knew that on the weekends, there were far too many people around. They might try to take his perfect rock! So he waited until all the people went back to work on a Monday. But his work had just begun!

Loco The Lounging Lizard knew there were plenty of rocks here at the campground. Big rocks. Small rocks. Medium rocks. Dry rocks. Wet rocks. But he needed the perfect rock!

And so he set out on an expedition! He packed his water and his backpack and his tent. This might take awhile!

For days and days, Loco The Lounging Lizard looked for the perfect rock. But he couldn’t find it! He got very tired! He really needed a place to lounge. And all of a sudden, when he thought that he couldn’t look anymore, he saw two dogs named Peanut Butter Brickle and Digby Pancake in campsite #164! They were lounging!

Brickle and Digby were lounging on big, comfy beds. Sleeping and lounging and soaking up the sun is what they were doing! They seemed so comfortable! They seemed so happy! Loco The Lounging Lizard wanted to be this comfortable and this happy!

Loco wondered if perhaps he didn’t need a perfect rock! Maybe he needed for Brickle and Digby to just scoot over!

Maybe that was where he needed to lounge! It was a wonderful thought for Loco. Such a perfect solution to his endless search for a perfect rock! He was tired!

So that afternoon in the lovely, lively and leafy Florida place campground, Loco decided that he would hang out in campsite 164 with Brickle and Digby.

They had quite a routine! They would hike in the morning, go to the beach, eat breakfast, then nap outside in the sunshiney.

And as they dreamt of peanut butter cookies and pancakes, Loco The Lounging Lizard started practicing his lounging skills. It had been quite awhile since he had used these skills. He stretched! He yawned! He could do this! He was ready to lounge!

First, he lounged next to Digby Pancake.

He was very quiet so as not to wake him up! He stretched out his long, lizard legs and soaked up the sunshiney! He was so comfortable that he decided to sing a song…very quietly.

I am Loco The Lounging Lizard

I love to lounge around

I have legs real long and I eat all day

And I’m known throughout this town!

A rock is good to sleep on

But a bed is sure good too

You can bet I’ll be in site 164

And I won’t be singing the blues!

Loco The Lounging Lizard was happy lounging next to Digby. But all of a sudden, Digby stretched and yawned and almost rolled over…right on top of Loco!

Oh no! This wasn’t going to work! So Loco decided to move over to Brickle’s bed! This had to be safer! But just as Loco was about to get comfortable, Brickle saw a bug flying towards them. Brickle liked to chase away bugs! And Loco knew that his usual lunch order would be no more. The kitchen ran out of the daily special. And well, lounging was good, but he needed to eat too. And this wasn’t going to work at all! Not at all!

Loco The Lounging Lizard knew he must keep looking for his rock. You see, Loco needed to have his own space.

Loco needed to have his own happy place! So he took a little nap high in a tree and packed his backpack again. He started to leave site 164 in this lovely, lively, and leafy Florida place campground when all of a sudden he saw it! A rock! But not just any rock! It was the perfect rock!

It seemed too good to be true! But it was truer than true! Right by Peanut Butter Brickle and Digby Pancake’s beds was his rock! It was hard. It was warm. And it was long! Long enough for Loco The Lounging Lizard!

You see, Loco knew that everyone deserved a special place to lounge and to rest and to be happy! And this was his happy place. He lounged on his rock and to him, it was the most beautiful, comfortable rock in the whole wide world! Or at least in this lovely, lively and leafy Florida place campground! From that day on, he didn’t compare his happy place to anyone else’s. He was content knowing that he was happy. And that was more than enough for him!

Loco The Lounging Lizard didn’t know how long Brickle and Digby would be in site 164.

But he did know that the lessons they taught him would stay with him for a very long time.

Just as long as his rock, so were his days. And his happy place remained on his perfect rock which was perfect only to him. And that’s what mattered most.

And they all lived and lounged happily ever after.

According to the Pet Releaf website, “Cannabidiol (CBD) from the Hemp plant has been known to work wonders with people and with pets when it comes to temporary anxiety prevention. There are multiple scientific studies showing the positive effects of CBD for a multitude of health conditions- including pain management and anxiety reduction.

When CBD enters a mammals endocannabinoid system, specific receptors found throughout the body are activated. These are the only receptors in the body that allow for 2 way communication between body systems. Basically, CBD makes it easier for the body to calm down and relieve tension and temporary anxiety, because receptors in the endocannabinoid system can now “speak” to each other.”

We can only hope that if your pet has any issues that have not been helped by all of the ways you have tried, including conventional medicine, consult your vet and consider Pet Releaf!
