Claire is one of the resident cows at the Black Dog Farm and Rescue in Texas. She has found a safe place and a forever home. These curious cows live on a magical farm in Texas known as Black Dog Farm and Rescue. It's a place where animals of all kinds find sanctuary and love. Here, they have been living the good life, but it wasn't always so easy for these gentle beasts. Each of them has found their way here due to medical issues of other problems that made them too expensive for their owners to keep them on the farm where they once lived. In the farming world, an animal that costs more than they are valued at must have their time cut short. But at this wonderful sanctuary, animals come here to find the help they need, as well as a forever home. Claire has been here almost a year and she has been soaking up the love and feasting on the ample supply of food. She and the other cows play and interact with the family that runs this farm. They have learned to trust their humans completely. Black Dog Farm can be found on Facebook. They do amazing work, which is only possible with the support of friends, family and other animal lovers. Please check out their page and consider helping them do the work that these little creatures so richly deserve.

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden launched into his second year in office Thursday with a new focus on making fatigued Americans believe they’re better off under his leadership as he embraces a pared-back agenda before the midterm elections. The persistence of the coronavirus, rising inflation and congressional gridlock have exacted a bitter toll on Biden’s approval rating and threaten a midterm routing for his party, but the president sees no need for a major shift in direction.
