Every Pet Deserves A Good Home…

13-Pound Pooch Takes Hero Pet of the Year

Chi ChiMeet Chi Chi, this little Chihuahua mix is 13-pounds of attitude and now the Reader’s Digest Hero Pet of the Year!  Seems this little guy was out basking on Indian Beach on North Carolina’s Outer Banks with his owners, Rick and Mary Lane, when he became an unlikely hero and savior.

Hanging out in his own little beach chair, restrained because it seems he has a habit of chasing people, I did mention he has an attitude, right? Well, the little noticed something amiss and took off… still attached to his chair, dragging it down the beach behind him and making a yapping sound his owners had never heard before.

It didn’t take long for Chi Chi’s “mom” to spot the problem.

“There was a storm surge, and there were two elderly ladies — one had fallen on her back headfirst into the surf,” she said. “The other lady — a little bitty lady about 90 pounds — was trying to hold her head up, and she was in danger of being washed out.”

And no, the little pooch didn’t dive into the water and valiantly pull the struggling ladies out but he did set off the alarm that sent the Lanes into the water as rescue proxies for Chi Chi. After making sure the ladies were fine, a little shaken but otherwise okay, they headed back only to find the little yapping hero sound asleep in his chair, his job done.

Now Chi Chi has become the little celebrity in his home town and also captured enough hearts with his story to take be crowned Hero Pet of the year! But be wary if you meet this little guy on the street, he’s not into the petting thing, you’ll see on the video! LOL

Way to go Chi Chi!!

I volunteer at our local Humane Society & as you all know they are “full to overflowing”.  All the shelters/rescues are in dire need of supplies.  So, spring clean your house this fall & donate (it’s also tax deductible).  They need tons of stuff:  your unused dogs stuff (collars, leashes, bowls, balls/toys, grooming stuff, crates, etc.); sheets/blankets, peanut butter/food, unused/unexpired meds; even the paper from your shedder – and more/more/more.  Oh and …..and towels, lots and lots of towels!  Discarded crib mattresses make wonderful beds, especially for older dogs

Check the website for your local shelters/rescue – they usually list items that you can donate.

Another thing to consider is to volunteer to be a foster parent.

And please start working in your area to have the state laws, city ordinances and community rules changed and amended to increase the number of pets willing parents are allowed to own and foster.

We are truly in a time of disaster!!  Not allowing people to adopt of foster one or two more pets is a crime!

Help save lives!   Adopt and foster just one more pet and help the change the laws that prevent that!

Cudos to you all!

Oh, by the way, there’s a goat in my trunk…

Favre Goat Found in Woman's Trunk at Repair ShopWINONA, Minn. – A woman on her way to St. Paul really got the goat of auto repairman James Prusci. She went to Tires Plus in Winona Friday, wanting a belt replaced on her Chevy Malibu. While he was doing paperwork, she said she had a goat in her trunk. “A what?” he asked. She told him she planned to butcher it.

It was painted Minnesota Viking colors — purple and gold — with Brett Favre’s No. 4 shaved on its side. Favre made his Vikings debut Friday in a preseason game.

Prusci called animal control, which took the goat to a local vet. He was renamed Brett and placed in foster care.

Animal control officer Wendy Peterson said Monday the city attorney was reviewing the case for possible citations.
