1 Feel good story..... on Tue May 03, 2016 5:04 pm

There was a recent news report about a house fire here (Orlando area):

"Two little kids were trapped in a burning house in Florida last week, and the smoke was too thick for the firefighters to find them. But the family's German shepherd ran in, sniffed them out, guided the firefighters, and saved their lives."

It makes me want to go to the Humane Society and adopt a dog again. Then I remember I can turn off the lights, check the locks and walk out the door and no worry about being home to let out/feed/etc.

I guess I'll just be glad there are stories like that on the news once in a while.

I saw that story on FB.. it was really great how the dog saved them....

love good stories about animals....

Beth, one of your neighbors can always check on your 'dog' ~~~ if you get one...

I never had one. I am kind of fearful of the bigger ones. We always had a cat; just one.. I love to cuddle....

My DD#2 has the most lovable black labrador / hound mix.....Huckleberry.

He would protect my daughter and grandson with his life, I'm sure. He is large and imposing but when he rolls on the floor with my daughter and the two of them have 'conversations'.....well, that's when I think I'd really like to have a dog again.



But it would break a dog or cat's heart to be left without me when I win the $348M Powerball Lottery and start to just take off for the far corners of the world.......

LOL

But, of course, even though there is an ordinance in The Villages that all pets must be on a leash and/or contained....

We occasionaly have a problem with packs of wild dogs running loose.

Recently a dangerous pack of dogs attacked an alligator.

I saw that story. Amazing!
I read another story yesterday about some boaters who were out in the gulf off of Florida. One of the men saw what looked like an orange buoy floating in the water. As they got closer, the man saw two eyes and feet. It was a little dog! He fished it out and it was shaking and scared. He called the Coast Guard and told them he found a dog. They told him a man had reported his dog missing off his boat. The two were reunited. How is that for nine lives? Frankly, I don't understand why people don't tie a tether to their animals if they are on board. At least he had put a life jacket on the poor dog. But a very happy ending.
