A Baby’s Laughter

It is time again for just a feel good video. No sad story , no serious subject.  Just pure joy.  Today’s video is a bunch of babies enjoying dogs.  Dogs are part of our families.  The supply companionship, friendship and unconditional love.  They do this even when a new little one comes into the scene.  Babies are so fun to watch but this just shows us how babies love their dog friends.  I love the laughter from these little ones.  It makes you forget any trouble you might have in your life for a few short minutes.  Sit back and just enjoy the laughter.  The joy that a dog brings to a child and the joy of laughter that touches our lives.  I don’t know about you but I just can’t get enough of babies and dogs.  Grab your drink and enjoy this short delightful video.

Have a GREAT day…by making it a great day for someone else!!!

The Deer and the Dog

Who doesn’t need  just a good pet video.  Here is the one for you.  This video is about a deer that just adopted a family and their pets.  This deer comes over to stay and play with the dog and even the cat.  They look like they are best friends.  Even other deer vcome by to visit.  I would love to live here where the animals play so freely with eachother.  How fun watching the dog and the deer play like they are both dogs.  I have never seen a “wild” animal seem so tame.  It is just a feel good video to remind us just how precious these animals are.  Oh to be a dog.  Or a deer at this house.

Dog Saves Little Girl

This is a story from last winter about a little girl who wandered off from the family home.  Search and Rescue teams searched the area for 15 hours looking for missing three year old Victoria. She had wandered away from her home on a cold February night and got lost in the woods behind her house. Finally she was found and it was discovered that their family dog, Blue, a Queensland Heeler, had stayed with her all night and kept her warm in the cold temperatures. What a hero Blue is! Those that have pets in their family realize not only how much those pets mean to their family but also how much the family means to the pets.   You can tell it in this story of the little girl.  The dog knew she was not where she should be and that there was no one to take care of her except him.  So that is just what he did. He took care of her.  Who would know that it would turn out to be the family dog that saves her. What a great family member….even though he is a dog, he is a member of this family.

Dog Train

If you are in Fort Worth, Texas, you might get a glimpse of an unusual train puttering down a road. You might have to do a double take, as you realize it’s a train filled with dogs! Eighty-year-old Eugene Bostick and his “dog train” are well known to locals. He’s been driving the tractor with eight barrels in tow for several years.It turns out the retiree built the train for the stray dogs he’s rescued with his brother over the years, after people have dumped the dogs near their property.“I started out with my tractor. I had a little trailer and I put four or five dogs in there and took them riding. Then more dogs started to show up and I said, ‘Uh-oh! That’s not enough room!’ That’s when I came up with that,” Bostick told NBCDFW explaining how the dog train came into being.Recently, Tiffany Johnson, who has seen him regularly go by her office, wanted to take a picture. “This is the coolest guy he rescues stray dogs and every morning he takes them for a train ride by our building, I finally got the courage up to ask if I could take his pic! Love this and had to share!” she wrote on Facebook after sharing the photo.

Tiffany told one commenter that the dogs don’t ever jump out. It seems they know exactly what to do and bark enthusiastically on their ride! When Tiffany was asked where Bostick finds the strays, she said, “he just rescues them from going to the pound!! He said people actually drop their dogs they no longer can take care of, off to him”. What a wonderful, kind man! The pups sure look like they love it!  Share this sweet story with your family and friends!

Amazing Found Dog Story

This dog and her owner were in a bad traffic accident in the desert back in June.  Volunteers have been looking for the dog for the last 65 days.  They had an idea that the dog was in a certain area so they set a trap to bring her home.  Rose Sherman thought she would never see her sweet Ily ever again.  During the accident Ily ran off scared after the crash.  A group of volunteers watched the cage and listened on a baby monitor for the dog to wander in.  Finally she came by and they were able to trap the dog so that they could bring her home to her family.  Ily had avoided all human contact until she was reunited with Rose.  What a wonderful reunion it was.  Rose thought she might never see her faithful dog again.  Rose is still recuperating from her injuries she sustained in the accident.  Ily had missed a few meals but for being in the desert for 65 days she looks extremely well and is very glad to be back home with Rose.  What an amazing reunion.

A Special Crossing Guard

Brad Curtis is a local crossing guard in Jersey shore.  He is a retired contractor.  He loves to help the children. He says it keeps him young.  But that is not who gets all the attention at this cross street.  It is his helper, Patches , the crossing guard dog. They love how cute the dog is with the stop sign jacket that he wears.  He is very well trained.  When Brad brought along little Patches they all said that the dog needed a uniform also.  The kids just love the dog and the neighborhood think that he is just the perfect addition to the neighborhood.  Anything that will help the children follow the rules helps.  They all love watching the dog and he loves the children.  Thank you Mr. Curtis for bringing Patches to help you.  Of course, Patches will only be on duty until the weather changes.  When it gets cold, Patches has to stay home.

This Visitor is Welcomed

The good news of the is story is not that he is losing his certification. The good news is what good he did before this story.  You have to see the joy that this dog brought to the hospitals he visited.  Chopper the biker dog was a welcome visitor to the senior housing.  This dog has visited thousands. He is the cutest thing coming up to visit riding his motorcycle.  He has been doing this for 5 years.  They love to hold him and pet him.  What a special dog to show his love to these seniors.  Let’s not focus on the reason he wears the costume but more that the joy he brings to the people he spends time with.  Even though he may not be allowed some places he still is allowed others. Recently Chopper went to a rally of Paralyzed Veterans of America where he met with other service dogs bringing smiles to our Veterans.  This is one amazing dog and a great handler too.  Thanks for sharing Chopper with those in need.

Still Man’s Best Friend

This may be a commercial for Pedigree dog food yet it tells an amazing story.  A story about man’s best friend.  This is a wonderful story of two men who having made some bad choices in their lives, served their time and when getting out of prison needed to straighten their lives out.  Finding themselves alone they looked to a pet to help them get their lives figured out.  Matt and Joey served their time and once released they looked for a way to start their lives over.  They started by adopting a dog for a companion.  Adopting the dogs end up boosting their self-esteem and helping to ease their reintegration into society.  This program is called First Days Out.  This time was very hard for them.  Changes that happened while they were in prison was shocking as they returned home.  After adopting the dog they were able to care for something that helped them start over.  Both men were able to get started over with a job and with people again.  This is a great program to help men like these but also help the pets that become their families.

Rescue for two strays

Here is a video  from an organization called Hope for Paws.  They were called by some people who noticed these two dogs living on the street for over a month.  They worked hard to help the dog not be afraid and allow them to come close. These folks took their time to show the dog that they were there to help.  They focussed on the one as the other watched from a distance.  This rescue took some time but they were finally able to get a leash on the dog.  This dog probably never had a leash on so again they started over to regain her trust.  Finally they were able to get the dog to allow them to pick up the dog.  They next focussed on the little dog to corner this one and gain his trust.  Finally they got both dogs home to bath, feed and help them know that someone cares.  This group does this to help stays find a forever home.  Thanks to people like these to help dogs trust again.
