Do You Remember Love?

After my 18 year old Yorkshire Terrier, Maggie died, I was lost. This video helped me a lot.

I also joined the "I Remember Love" Social Network for Dog Lovers.

A Dogs Wish

This is a very heartwarming video about a dog. It has a poem that is great.

"A Dogs Wish"

Treat me kindly, my beloved friend for no heart in all the earth is more grateful for kindness than ours.

Do not break my spirit with blows or words, though I will lick your hand between them, your patience & understanding teach me more than your anger.

Speak to me often for your voice is the sweetest music, as you must know by my tails fierce wagging.

Please keep me inside for I am no longer wild & I ask for no more than to sit with you. Though if you had no home, I would rather follow you through ice and snow than rest in the warmest home in the entire universe for you are my friend.

All I ask is that you keep my dish filled, for although I should not reproach you were it empty, I cannot tell you when I suffer thirst or hunger. I only ask of this so that I may stay well to romp and play and walk by your side to stand ready, willing and able to protect you with my life should you or those you love be in danger.

And dear friend, should the Great One see fit to deprive me of my health, sight or make me feel pain that I do not understand, do not turn me away, rather hold me gently in your arms as skilled hands grant me merciful release from this earth and eternal rest with our maker.

I will miss you then and wait for you to join me.

As I leave this body I will be comforted knowing, even with my last breath, I was ever safest in your warm arms.

Dog, Cat, and Rat

This is a video of a homeless man in Santa Barbara and his pets. They work State Street every week for donations. The animals are pretty well fed and are mellow. They are a family. The man who owns them rigged a harness up for his cat so she wouldn't have to walk so much (like the dog and himself). At some juncture the rat came along, and so no one wanted to eat anyone else, the rat started riding with the cat and often, on the cat. The dog will stand all day and let you talk to him and admire him for a few chin scratches. The mayor of Santa Barbara filmed this clip and sent it out as a Christmas card.

Unusual Dog Walk

This is a real heart warmer. Watching it reminds us all what dogs mean to us--and the lengths we will go to for their happiness.

Jerry needs no help playing with his ball.

Check out this amazing machine that a man spent two years building to keep his dog happy. He built it with a number of "safety features" like IR proximity sensors to keep the dog and his son safe. This is way cool!

Best Friends Animal Society - Dogtown

Best Friends Animal Society - Dogtown: "It's not just a sanctuary - it's Dogtown!

Dogtown is the most welcoming place on earth. They may have been homeless, but none of the dogs here are sad and forlorn.

Everywhere you go, you're greeted with wagging tails, whelps of excitement and big, friendly eyes.

This is truly a neighborly, all-American town."

A lion hugs and kisses a woman


Even though this is not Rescuing Rover related. This is a wonderful example of taming the lion. He loves and adores this woman who saved his life. Look at his face. You see the joy. The way he reached through the bars and gave her the biggest lion hug he could. How endearing. . .
