Every Pet Deserves A Good Home…

A Dogs Special Thanksgiving Day

I was talking with a friend the other day and telling her about how a few years back, we had a small Thanksgiving Dinner at our house, not like the sit-downs for 25+ I’ve had many times over the years, 40 was our record.  But that year we ended up having dinner for 6.5 people and 8 furkids… I told her I’d find the photos, so I’m sharing below. This year we will be volunteering at a mission and fixing a barebones meal afterwards; primarily for our pups.

Finnegan the Squirrel

The moral of this story is the best part!!!

Debby Cantlon, who plans to release Finnegan, the young squirrel, back into the wild,
bottle-fed the infant squirrel after it was brought to her house.

When Cantlon took in the tiny creature and began caring for him, she found herself with an
unlikely nurse’s aide: her pregnant Papillion, Mademoiselle Giselle.

Finnegan was resting in a nest in a cage just days before Giselle was due to deliver her puppies.
Cantlon and her husband watched as the dog dragged the squirrel’s cage twice to her own bedside before she gave birth.
Cantlon was concerned, yet ultimately decided to allow  the squirrel out and the inter-species bonding began.

Finnegan rides a puppy mosh pit of sorts, burrowing in for warmth after feeding, eventually
working his way beneath his new litter mates.

Two days after giving birth, mama dog Giselle allowed Finnegan to nurse; family photos and a
videotape show her encouraging him to suckle alongside her litter of five pups.  Now, Finnegan
mostly uses a bottle, but still snuggles with his ‘siblings’ in a mosh pit of puppies, rolling atop their
bodies, and sinking in deeply for a nap.

Finnegan and his new litter mates, five Papillion puppies, get along together as if they were meant to.

Finnegan makes himself at home with his new litter mates, nuzzling nose-to-nose for a nap after feeding.
Send this along to brighten someone’s day!
Wouldn’t it be nice if we could all get along
like Finnegan and the gang?

MORAL OF THE STORY:
Keep loving everyone, even the squirrelly ones!

(Ask Marion will admit it is something after years of doing just that, that she has a hard time doing these days!!)

What a great story though!!  And these puppies remind us so much of one of our own dogs’ pups, Goji
