*I love my two dogs. Shepherd mix and a pit, rescue mutts. LOVE ‘em. I joked just this morning that I wish inter-species marriage was legal. But this story is taking attachment to an animal to a whole new level.
Paramedics in Boca Raton, Florida rushed a 23-year-old beachgoer to the hospital after she’d been bit on the arm by a two-foot-long nurse shark.
*My husband is terrified of clowns. Phobic, in fact. His “condition” even has a term: coulrophobia.
I put “condition” in quotation marks because I’ve never really understood it. I LOVE clowns. Always have. I religiously watched Bozo and Oopsy the Clowns on TV growing up in Detroit. I spent my childhood hoping a clown would show up at one of my birthday parties. Never happened.
ANYWAY, with a husband who screams like a bitch whenever a clown pops up on TV, avoids McDonalds like the plague, and wouldn’t stream the movie It to save his life, I’m always looking for warm and fuzzy clown stories to help him feel better about them.
*This writer can really relate to this story about the family dog protecting his human from one of the most undesirable reptiles in the animal kingdom…a rattlesnake.
But this German Shepherd, named “Haus,” is being hailed a hero after he showed bravery and came between a little girl who was playing with the dog in her yard when the reptile came slithering up and decided to join in on the fun.
The Shepherd went into attack-mode and was bitten several times by the Eastern diamondback snake. But not even this stopped Haus. And according to the girls mother, Donya DeLuca, their beloved dog “kept taking hits” from the snake.
DeLuca even said she “didn’t know if she would have made it” had the dog not intervened. Continue reading →
*And you thought Johnson & Johnson only created great smelling products like baby oil and powder.
Now, we can all stop thinking small!
Thanks to one mommy who posted a “recipe” online that was picked up by The Daily Mail. The Facebook post was put up on March 5, and it talked about how a friend of the woman’s showers with Johnson’s Soothing Vapor Bath to get rid of her migraines.
Apparently a LOT of folks get migraines (or know people who do) because the post has been shared close to 200,000 times!
I agree with Hamilton’s friend, who says the product is “life-changing.”
Her friend, according to Hamilton, suffers from tension headaches; so she showers regularly with this bubble bath.
She “… lathers up really good and breathes in the smell for about five minutes, then rinses off. After that, her headache is gone,” Hamilton says.
Omg. ANY parents’ greatest nightmare turned real for Adrienne Kromer and Bryan Felmly recently. After three-and-a-half months of maternity leave Kromer finally returned to work, but as any new mother would be, she was really, really nervous about leaving her precious bundle of joy at daycare, and called often to make sure everything was OK.
Unfortunately, and to her horror, the last call showed everything was NOT.
According to what the infant’s dad, Bryan Felmly, wrote on GoFundMe, little McKenna Felmly hadn’t shown any signs of illness or distress when she was dropped off at the Lehigh Township, Pa., center in the morning.
But according to an article on USA Today, the child’s mother got really nervous when the daycare center told her McKenna was having trouble taking a bottle, and later said she’d fallen asleep quickly (which was rare for the infant). Continue reading →
