Believe it or not, tarot cards were not originally for divining the future. They were originally a deck of playing cards. However you choose to make use of them, this delightful deck of Animal Tarot Cards is as amazing as it is beautiful.
Everyone knows that animals can have amazing healing powers. To this end hospitals, hospices, and nursing homes often have routine visits from dogs and cats. Sometimes even miniature horses have been brought in to visit retirement homes. But in Dijon, France, hospitals and retirement homes allow a full-sized horse come to check in on the patients and give them some extra love and kindness -- often in their final hours.
The Dickin Medal has been called "the Victoria Cross for animals." The award was created in the UK by Maria Dickin in 1943 to honor valiant animals who served in World War II. It is a bronze medal of a laurel wreath surrounding the words "For Gallantry" and "We Also Serve." It hangs from a ribbon of pale blue, brown, and green. It was most recently awarded just last month to a dog named Kuga.
