A dog rescued from South Korea's dog meat industry waits for a flight out of Seoul.
(Jean Chung for The New York Times)


The NYT source article is here, but of course be warned that it is disturbing.

We all wish that each and every dog gets rescued from the meat trade...such a horrible thing.

There's something other-worldly about the dog and fox picture. I keep expecting Rumpelstiltskin to jump out from behind the tree. Or maybe Jonny Depp.

The note reads, “My name is Cletus!! My owner decided she could not keep me anymore because she does not have a place to stay. I am a very good dog. I’m 11-years-old but I still play like a puppy. I don’t chew anything but food. I’m house broken. I’m great with kids. I play, catch Frisbees, and love to give hugs. Can you please help me find a home? I don’t want to go to the shelter.”

Wow, I don't know who to feel sadder for- Cletus or his former caregiver.

Cletus is at a shelter in Lawrenceville, Georgia now. Hopefully he can find a new home.

One Big Happy Family

Rescues all love each other and are one big happy family. Full article and more pictures HERE.

I bet it never occurred to you that dogs, cats, and ducklings could get along, huh? Well, turns out not only do they get along, but they’re inseparable!

Meet Roxy, Edith, Mia, Rose, Jake, Gertrude and Donald – the most adorable family of seven that you’ll ever see. They were adopted by Kasey Boggs and her husband, who have been rescuing animals for a decade.

Their current family of seven is made up of four dogs, a cat, and two ducklings, and they’re all inseparable. They go on adventures every weekend, take the cutest photos ever, then post them to
Instagram.

The animals love each other so much, they won’t even take pictures separately. “Whenever I have to take a pic of two or three of them, I put the others in a different room. If I try to do it in front of them, they will come together, because they are so used to being together”, Boggs told Barkpost. Too cute!

There are lots of videos of daughters and wives having near epileptic episodes / nervous breakdowns when surprised with a puppy as a gift, but I was touched by this video where the laughter of a man quickly gives way to apparent quiet sobbing.

Well, I don't know if giving a dog as a present is ever a good idea- not as often as it seems to happen- lots of issues involved. But that aside, it seems this man will appreciate and take good care of this new puppy.

Uh-oh. A voice says "He's five or six weeks old today." Oh no. I hope they're returning him to his mother and siblings for a few more weeks.

Some of the wives and daughters videos I've seen are so annoying and fake, IMO....very few sincere. This man sincerely looks like he was surprised and will be a loving friend to that tiny pup. Love the video, when the puppy wagged his tail I immediately smiled. :friendly_wink:
