National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week

Many of the animals that are used in therapeutic ways came from animal shelters.

This week is National Animal Shelter Appreciation week.  This is the perfect time for me to to share this video from the SPCA of Wake County in North Carolina, that a friend of mine works at.  Unfortunately, the music has been pulled from the video, but as they say on their webpage "you can't keep a dog down".  There are instructions on the video to get around it.

Lastly, another friend has two dogs that need to be adopted.  They were found in a Wal-Mart parking lot and have had their shots and are healthy.  They are about 7-9 months old and some kind of lab/German Shepard mix.  If you're interested, let me know.  Otherwise, pass the information on because her apartment doesn't really have room for these guys along with the two dogs she already has.

Look at these boys!

***Update! Sam has been adopted but Wally is still looking for a forever home.***

Dog Lead Dog World

A few weeks ago, I ran across the story of Lily, a Great Dane, who was born with a  condition that led her eyelashes to grow into her eyes. Veterinarians removed her eyes when she was just a puppy.

I would have thought life would be pretty hard for Lily but, she found a guide in her friend Maddison, another Great Dane.

Unfortunately, after 6 years, her humans could no longer take care of the two large dogs and was looking for someone willing to take them both.

Just 9 days later, the story of Lily and Maddison being adopted made the news.

Maddison is a great reminder of what it means to be a friend.
