Explain this to the ER…

How well would you fare if you told a hospital emergency room that your dog had stabbed you?   Probably as poorly as this Colorado woman did,  even though she  was telling  the truth.

A dog walks into ER…

leave a comment »

Actually,  an injured Lab did  walk into  a hospital emergency room.   He had been hit by a car,  so the ER staff made him warm and comfortable before taking him to a nearby veterinarian for treatment.   Capone was such an engaging fellow that the ER staff paid his vet bill if the owner would get him micro-chipped.

Does your baby have a canine babysitter as good as  this one?

Good guy…

An off-duty firefighter  saves a dog,  just before the roof of the blazing home collapsed.   On his way to his daughter’s birthday party,  the hero didn’t stick around to be thanked.

Shielding a dog…

leave a comment »

A couple in Dover England  shielded a  shivering shepherd from a driving rainstorm.  The poor dog was tied to a lamppost in a sudden storm,  and the strangers took pity on him.   A shop lent them umbrellas for the effort,  then gave them the umbrellas as thanks.

Good for them,  but I can tell you that Big Girl would have simply chewed the rope and taken herself off to find shelter,  then told me about it when i returned.  BG does not like to be rained on,  but if there is a threat she will dash out in a thunderstorm to deliver her impressive warning barks and growls.  People are responsible for their pets and their children,  whether they want to be or not.

Some sweet postal worker did a wonderfully  nice thing  for a young boy missing his deceased dog.
