I couldn’t resist sharing this cute photo of Dixie, a rescued Jack Russell terrier, who was one of the winners in the ASPCA “My Furry Valentine” photo contest. Read her story at the ASPCA website. You can enjoy photos of the rest of the winners here.
Christian was separated from his parents at an early age and put up for sale in a London department store. Christian’s parents were zoo lions, the father came from the Rotterdam zoo and the mother from Jerusalem, and they lived at the Ilfracombe zoo. When they had cubs, the zoo sold them, and two cubs went to the department store.
Two men, Anthony Bourke and John Rendall, found him there and immediately fell in love with him and determined to buy him. They scraped together the money and brought the little lion home when he was only a few weeks old.
Tony and John dedicated themselves to giving Christian the best life they could, and the bond that developed between them is a joy to behold. Christian was a remarkable lion, obviously very intelligent and loving, and gentle to everyone, both human and animal. [continue reading about Great Pets…]
This is a video of a homeless man’s pets in Santa Barbara. The animals are well fed and mellow. They are a family. The dog will stand all day and let you talk to him and admire him, for a few chin scratches.
Dachshund mom, Tink, willingly adopted a newborn piglet who was the runt of his litter. Known fondly as Pink, he has been accepted as one of the family. Read the entire account at the Daily Daschund and Dog News. Love is blind, indeed.
Thanks to the Daily Dachshund and Dog News for the photo.
