*Here is four inspiring videos of amazing, cute and adorable incidents that will warm your heart, put a smile on your face, and help you to not feel so bad about being at work (Of course work must not be SO bad. You’re taking a break to watch this…Heh. Heh. Heh).
Tina Levy is a mother of 5 children. She put her 11-month-old child on the changing table and turned her back for a second. In that brief time, the baby falls — more than 4-feet — off the table. But watch what happens just before he hits the ground.
*This story may inspire all pet owners whose precious family members got lost by mistake. Amy Baca’s Lhasa Apso, “Brownie,” ran out a door that was left open accidentally in 2007, and the family searched far and wide before giving up any hope that he would be found.
Fast forward nine years later, when Baca received a message on Facebook from Kathy Hamel, owner of Arizona Shih Tzu and Small Breed Rescue.
The dog had been left in front of a tattoo parlour, and some kind soul dropped him off at Hamel’s rescue facility.
Fortunately, the dog had a chip. But Hamel wasn’t sure it would be of much use after all this time, as owner’s move and contact info becomes outdated. Thankfully, Baca had registered her information with more than one agency, so once the chip was discovered, Hamel was able to move forward in attempts to reach her.
Whew! It is times like this that, when used correctly, social media really proves its worth. Continue reading →
*It baffles the mind as to how anybody could abandon their own pet. I mean, one grows so attached to an animal you chose to be a part of your family. They are nothing but loyal; and even when they are mischievous, we get mad but can’t stay mad. So after seeing a photo of a dog named “Boo” who was allegedly left behind by his owners, but continued to sleep outside on a mattress — seemingly waiting for them to return for him, all I could do was weep.
With two adorable, full-grown pitbulls already in my household, I knew taking in one more was not an option. And further, because of the erroneously bad reputation of these dogs, I didn’t think Boo’s chances for being rescued were that great.
So I was ecstatic to learn that someone who also saw the picture of Boo, and heard his story, took heart and came along and got him.
Now Boo, who was so grateful when the rescuers showed up, he offered no resistance and thanked them with sloppy wet kisses, has been given a forever home!
*DaYUM! I accidentally walked in one mom and dad a few times when they were gettin’ busy and almost got my ass whipped, but one hiker is lucky to be alive after officials say they believe he interrupted two mating bears.
Dan Richman was probably accustomed to hiking alone in the Sierra Madre Hills of California’s Bailey Canyon area. But on this day a surprise was waiting for him. According to what he told KTLA, he was walking along a trail when he spotted a bear on its hind legs 50 to 100 feet away. He was pretty amazed because it was his first time seeing a bear in person. “I was pretty freaked out.”
But not so fast! When he turned around to leave he spotted a second bear. And this one was even closer.
Damn, What do you do when a bear is practically in touching distance? Apparently he thought yelling at it would scare it away.
The driver was at an intersection and noticed an odd shape jutting out of the front of an oncoming car. He initially thought it was a prop of some type, perhaps a Halloween decoration, until he noticed a head moving. Continue reading →
*I’ve shared my home with a pit bull for seven years. If she’s at all indicative of the breed, they are the most misunderstood, maligned, lovable, loyal dogs in the world. Because of that loyalty, she will do whatever I tell her to do — even drop squirrels and feral cats from her jaws.In the hands of the wrong owner, she could have easily been trained to fight.
That said, a wholesale ban on pit bulls — which is exactly what had been proposed in Montreal, Canada — seems like a canine witch hunt to me.
