Tuesday Tails




This is about finding and adopting a blind dog - get your tissues ready - takes only two minutes,
 
http://www.godvine.com/Blind-Dog-Living-in-a-Trash-Pile-Gets-Rescued-1290.html
 Thank you Kelly.


We  got our dog Disco from a rescure agency who had put him on the street.  He is the sweetest dog ever - I will never understand how any one can do that to a pup!  I know a lot of you have resure animals and even if you didn't get a rescued dog or cat - I still think taking in a pet - helps not only them, but us too!

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY -

PS - My daughter went back to school this week - she's a teacher.  And I have my grandson full time. So if I get behind in answering your comments please understand.  Thanks.

Your pics made me smile today - and stories about adopting doggies always get to me. Glad I found your blog today. It's lovely.

An amazing turn around for that sweet little dog.

Stacy said...

Hehehe....LOVE the squirrel...and the sweet little Corgi. I can't imagine life without critters in it. It wouldn't be the same.

Cranberry Morning said...

Very cute pictures. :-) Our sweet (and now blind) Misty is from an animal shelter. We came to live with us in 2002 and help us keep track of Bridger. She's half his size but has the upper hand in that relationship. :-)

I know that squirrel; he lives in my yard. He swings on all our feeders and hides all his nuts in my flower pots.

TARYTERRE said...

I KNOW that squirrel too. LOL He gets around. HUNGRY little fella isn't he? Glad the dog was rescued. I donate to The Rolling Dog Farm every Christmas. They aid hundreds of disabled animals.

My young friend Kathleen is handicapped from a tragic accident and has a rescue dog who is entirely devoted to her. My sisters and I visited her Sunday and Dixie never left her side. Such spirit - from both of them.

Sorry to have been away from blogging the last few days - I was in the wilderness of northern Florida where there was no AT&T data service.

Angela said...

They are starting school earlier and earlier every year around here too. I don't like it one bit and neither do the kids.

Two was a pup along with 8 others that someone dropped off on the side of the road near my house. I took her in 12 years ago. A rescue group came and got the others.

Renae said...

You know it. I always have a great time with my grands! They make my life complete.

I loved the doggie leap. My doggie would be attacking the left over roll. She chews them like bones.

Knitty said...

That made for a cute squirrel picture, but I hate when they are on my screens. They got into a friend's home while they were on vacation and destroyed the living room.

Linda @ A La Carte said...

That poor dog and how wonderful to be rescued and adopted! Love the squirrel photo! Funny stuff. Hugs, Linda

SweetMarie said...

Love the squirrel! You weren't kidding about needing kleenex! That video made me cry from sadness and happiness! I LOVE people who make time and care enough to help any helpless animal! You know these people have kind hearts. Wonderful post Sandie!

Love Of Quilts said...

The squirrel Is cute and hungry.lol

TexWisGirl said...

my niece adopted a blind dog - she was a puppy mill rescue who had to have her eyes removed due to severe infection/swelling. my niece gives her a wonderful life full of care and love and experiences most wouldn't even dare to try w/ a blind dog.

jack69 said...

Okay, you done it, brought tears. Yep a great story of love. Fiona; that is so sweet. I am convinced it is not the price, pedigree, size or shape that makes a pet, it is the love. I remember reading someone saying, A dog is wonderful. You can say the dumbest things, and they will look at you like you are brilliant, boosting YOUR self esteem.

I have no problem with spending xx$ for a pet, but you will love from a pound just as much and they will love you back with the same enthusiasm.
Great entry. (I love the squirrel!)

Also love the Corgi; raising the bar!!!
From New York..
Jack & Sherry!

Sandra said...

i laughed long and loud at the silly squirrel messenger from the birds. and all 4 of the dogs we have had were rescue. baby and jake both abused and now they own us and live the life of riley. i saw a bumper sticker this morning that said i love my rescue

Mary said...

Ok, Sandie, usually you make me laugh..and I did at the squirrel..lol..but today you made me cry. I love our little dog critters..so sad. So happy for Fiona.

jack69 said...

I meant to say, the captions on the short video were great for me!

Linda Stansbury said...

I have a squirrel like yours... when the bird feeder is empty, he just spreads himself across the top and stares into the kitchen window. He knows I'll give in eventually and fill the feeder.

I also have a rescue dog and a rescue cat too. They are the best animals. So appreciative and loyal. I guess the have learned from hard times, and understand rejection. They seem grateful for their new lives and a loving home. And my life is richer everyday because of them.

Dragonfly Treasure said...

What a sweet pup Fiona is!! So glad she has found a forever home..and to be able to see again is amazing!

Thank you for your sweet condolences about Baylee. In my heart I know I did the right thing, but it doesn't mean it hurts any less.

Have a great day!
*hugs*deb

Nonnie said...

Our last three dogs have also been rescues. I can't bear to think how some people mistreat animals.

barbara l. hale said...

Love this! It's so true that we are helped when we adopt a pet.

I'm mostly known as 'MA' said...

3 of my dogs in the past were adopted from shelters. They were all very loving and made great companions for me. It's sad how there are so many of them. Visiting a shelter is an eye opener in its self. They all just look at you and say take me home. Have fun with your grandson. I've my my youngest here today and he is sound asleep in his swing.

Beth said...

I think the squirrel has a relative living in my front yard. ;-)

Miss Debbie said...

Those squirrels...they do like the bird food! Cute picture!

Gloria Hood said...

Thank God for people who are really good to their pets!

Rose said...

Bless your heart for being such a kind and caring person.

I enjoyed reading your Blog.

I used to be able to keep up with when school begins. Not any more. What with no kids in our household and my son who is a college professor teaches year 'round.

Your Disco is adorable. Yep, our two cats are 'gotcha' adoptees. And I wouldn't take any other kind. We make sure we get the older ones who tend to be left behind by those who want young pets.

That squirrel and caption is too good for words added here in my comment!!

EM Illustrator said...

Funny pictures today :)
My daughter made a prank on me today on my FB page, by posting a very funny picture on my page. Can't stop laughing...so that's what I have to deal with...lol!
Enjoy your day my friend!

Your GS is so active that I'll bet you're pooped at the end of the day, Sandie!...:)JP

Hi Sandie,

The squirrel is so funny!

xo,

Tree Hugger - Suzan said...

Ohh my gosh!!
Yes - Made me cry and I'm still choked up about the pooch!! How can people do that!! What compounds it - is that if a person will do that to a dog or cat - they are very likely to also treat their children and adults around them with the same appathy!

Alice Arthigton said...

it amazes me how forgiving animals can be. treated bad and most the time will accept a new family's love

Dee said...

couldn't watch the video even knowing it has a good ending. The squirrel still has me smiling....My kitty's Lucy and Ethyl are rescued...we have had them 11 years and I adore them.

Ann said...

oh that goals one is great. I love it

Belle said...

The squirrel is so cute and I love the one about starting somewhere. That is so true.

Debbie said...

thanks for the heads up, on the tissues!!

Susan J. Reinhardt said...

Wow, I can't believe they started school already. When did school end? May?

Mevely317 said...

I LOVE the folks at GodVine who gather and publish these videos! While I'd seen this before on FB, I still watched ... and still wept.
There must be a special place in Heaven for those Good Samaritan rescuers!

Blondee said...

Rescue animals are the best. Our Cujo came from a rescue and she is just the most darling mess of a beast. Love her tremendously.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

The video was so hearbreaking, Sanie! That poor defenseless dog abandoned like that. How fortunate that she was rescued!

My daughter and son-in-law just rescued a dog from a shelter...a sweet terrier named Lucy.

Enjoy watching your grandson!

Nancy Claeys said...

Love the squirrel -- and bless your heart for caring for Disco. xo

Susan said...

Oh Sandie, that squirrel alert was hilarious. So true, too!

And the video? Great. How wonderful there are people like that in the world, to help animals. Gives ya hope, ya know? Susan

Jon said...

I like the sweet photos of the squirrel and the dog!
I'm presently caring for ten stray cats (four of them are kittens) until I can find them good homes.
I would adopt them myself, but I already have my own cats who don't take too kindly to strangers.

SquirrelQueen said...

Thanks for the laugh when I scrolled down and saw the squirrel.

You've been following my blog awhile Sandie so you probably know I am all for adopting rescues. All of my cats were strays that we took in. I also volunteer with a group that offers low cost spay/neuters for cats.

My Journey With Candida said...

I can't believe school has started already. It seems to get earlier and earlier.

silverthoughts2 said...

My family adopted three dogs. Samantha came from the SPCA and was the sweetest black lab ever, Patches was an Australian Shepard we adopted from a family who honestly did not take very good care of her (My mother spent HOURS washing and brushing her fur that first night), and Buddy was another dog we adopted from another family who couldn't care for him anymore. He was very well taken care of though.
