Working around children I’m lucky to get some great pictures every now & then.
An officer visited the little ones and their faces were beaming. They love the uniform, seeing the car lights, and hearing the siren. It was so fun to listen to them talk to him and ask questions. They even had a discussion about how if they lost their dog the police will help find them and bring them home.
Just so sweet! We need to see more positive things like this in our world.
While driving , if you saw a dog or a cat wandering around alone, would you stop to help it? It is surprising how many people don’t.
A couple of my co-workers saw a puppy last night running in a very busy road. They said everyone was just driving by and no-one was even slowing down for the pup. Thank God for my co-worker’s compassion! They did stop and scooped him up and out of danger.
I‘ll never understand how anyone can see another living creature in danger, whether it be from traffic, starvation, other animals, weather, and even danger of other people, and not help it. It is one thing when it is wildlife running around (but still if they seem to be in danger, you should try to help), it is another thing if it is an animal such as a dog or cat. Obviously, these are domesticated animals and most likely someone’s lost pet.
Are you signed up for “PawBoost Alerts” in your area or something similar? If you don’t know what that is, it is Facebook alerts for when a pet has gone missing. It is a wonderful way to alert communities and get people involved in finding and returning an animal to their family.
I recently saw an alert for a little dog that was missing in my area and the note from the pet parent said the dog had been taken from their backyard. One of the comments was something like “OMG, you can’t even leave your pet outside anymore!” The sad reality is that it has been happening for a long time, we are probably just hearing about it more now with all of the online social media.

This is the tale of Blue. She lived on the beach following people around begging for affection until one day somebody finally rescued her.
I am a big fan of stories about rescued animals and I have been finding out there a lot of them. This makes me really, really happy! The part that makes me sad is that it seems there were so many other people who just “left her.” We would never do that if we saw a child on the beach alone. Why is it “ok” to leave a dog, that apparently has no “pet parent”, by itself on the beach? Continue reading →
If you have a dog, there probably has been a time when they have slipped out the door or slipped through the fence. Our little poodle we had growing up was somehow down the street before we knew it many times. If you have a dog you also know getting them back becomes a game. They stand there sniffing around, looking over at you as you are approaching, and then as soon as you just about reach them, they take off! Continue reading →
