Imagine driving down the street and seeing a dog in obviously desperate need of help; dirty, emaciated with ribs, hips and spine poking out, scuffed and scarred up, scared and in such sad shape that he’s practically oblivious to his surroundings just wandering down the street.  This is the beginning of Flint’s story, at least the only story that his rescuers know…

My fiancé left for work one morning, and not 5 minutes later I get a call from her. She came across this poor, obliviously unaware dog in the middle of the street, who almost got hit by one or two cars. She couldn’t seem to say no to this dog, and pulled aside to get his attention, just as another driver nearly hits him. She just really couldn’t let him end up dead, and honestly, I have no doubt he would have died had we not decided to help.

Jury Duty Call for Man’s Best Friend

One NJ man has a funny tale to tell and the proofjury duty to back it up.  Now, it’s not uncommon for our family members to get a jury duty summons but in this case it was Barrett Griner’s furry family member, named IV (that’s four in Roman numerals) that was summoned to jury duty.

“But nobody in my house is named IV except the German Shepherd,” Barrett said. “I had to laugh at it.” Read the rest of this entry

MurphySo many of us know the wonderful and healing “medicine” that our canine companions can be.  Therapy dogs help those who are hurt in many different ways from physical to emotional to psychological, to heal or sometimes even just cope with every day life.  Sometimes though, two injured souls find their way to each other and help each other to heal and sometimes one of these is canine and the other human.  This is the case of Murphy, an injured stray basset-pit mix and Brycen Roberts, a young teen dealing with being mercilessly bullied at school.

Brycen had become the target of some jock types at middle school, being beaten, bloodied and bullied all too often and the design of the school made it impossible to really escape, “People would just run up to me, push me over and run down the hall,” he said. Read the rest of this entry
