We all know that there are many benefits to sharing our lives with our canine companions. Dogs bring so much into our lives, added emotional, psychological and physical health but have you ever really thought about it in actual numbers? Check it out, nice to see it so concrete… not that we ever had any doubts! 🙂
Few quotes get straight to the heart of it as Rudyard Kipling’s from, “The Cat Who Walked by Himself”, a story of how first humans and first animals came together and dog became First Friend.
Dog… man’s first friend and still man’s best friend. Let us honor them with the same loyalty as they honor us.
And they say kids do the darndest things, what about dogs? Oh my, this is one scene stealing… and sled stealing pooch… sooo funny!
My heart is breaking… Nico is flying free…
From a story I shared in 2014 about a Dog Argentino, known as Nico, whose story began even earlier, in 2009 with a picture that had become viral…
This photo is not unknown to animal lovers and rescuers. It captured the depressed and broken spirit of a suffering shelter dog. It’s Nico, the 6-year-old Dogo Argentino who’s picture appeared on Facebook July 2009 that immediately went viral and caught the attention of animal rescuers. He was malnourished, covered in sores, flea bitten, missing several teeth, covered with tumors, and deaf.
Sadly, today at 5:52pm Eastern time Nico passed on to the Rainbow Bridge.
In 2012, responding to a loose dog report, cops used a catch pole to capture Chloe, a lab-pit mix. Then the officer, Robert Price, after using a stun gun, shot Chloe 5 times, killing the beloved family pet.
The largest settlement in history according to the Animal Law Center, was paid to the family, $262,000, “payment was part of a settlement to avoid a federal civil court trial scheduled later this month”.
What do you get when you add an adorable Frenchie, Rupert, and a precious 6 month old baby… total cuteness, a lot smiles and giggles galore! Watch how sweetly Rupert plays with the baby… Read the rest of this entry
Every now and then we all need a little puppy time… admittedly, my “puppies” are 12 and 13 but to me they are and will always be my puppies. In this case, the puppies really are just baby puppies and about as cute and precious as babies can be…
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.
