Dog, Man’s First Friend

First FriendFew 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.

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.

Flint – From Emaciated Stray to “Potato Dog”

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.

Animal control found numerous raw meatballs laced with rat poison scattered around Gunbarrel Park in the dog park on Buckingham Road. At least a half dozen have been found by animal control and they are being tested for human DNA to see if it can lead back to the sick person who did this.

The meatballs are slightly larger than an average key, as can be seen by the picture. Read the rest of this entry
