Woof to Wash

This is truly amazing and wonderful. There is such self assurance and power that comes with being able to take care of oneself and with the help of a service dog, doing the wash no longer requires asking another person for help. If only training the dog, was as easy as loading the washer!

Mountain Dog

video platformvideo managementvideo solutionsvideo player As incredible as it may seem, this pup, Rupee became the first to climb Mt. Everest with his owner, Joanne Lefson, in tow. Sometimes, literally. The story is even more remarkable since Rupee was rescued from a heap of abandoned pups in India and nursed back to health. A great tale, inspired by Lefson's previous dog, Oscar who traveled around the world with her and sadly passed away before the Everest adventure.

But like I always say, there are no coincidences.

Settling In

I know its sad that this little girl is in a Zoo, but consider the alternative. The orphaned polar bear cub was found wandering alone near the Manitoba airport in Canada. Officials from the Polar Bear Sanctuary at the Assiniboine Park Zoo in Canada rescued the she bear and recently introduced her to her new quarters. She needs to be quarantined for a few months before being introduced to the other bears, and I'd say she needs a bigger pool, but for the moment, she looks pretty content.

The dog was so covered in matted hair, the vet's husband thought he was a piece of rotten carpet. Underneath all that hair (3.5 pounds of it) was a pup who had never had human contact. He is now thriving in the home of his rescuers and "restoring their faith in humanity."

Inside a Penguin's Brain

Ever wonder what goes on in a penguin's brain? Well in Fluffy's there was an infection that was causing him to wobble and not be able to preen. Vets at the University of Minnesota's Vet School performed the first ever MRI on a penguin to determine this and once treatment with antibiotics was started, Fluffy made a dramatic improvement.

The prognosis is excellent for Fluffy, who at 18 is middle aged for a penguin.

Mr. Snuggles to the Rescue

Mr. Snuggles, the adorable golden retriever puppy in the video, is going to be a lifesaver--literally. Donated to Amira Jones, by the firefighters in Corona, California, the dog will eventually be trained to detect Amira's seizures before they happen. Since the firefighters were often called in to help Amira when she had seizures, they knew how much a dog could help the little girl.

And believe it or not, since the dog has arrived on the scene, Amira has not had a seizure.
