Dying Woman Holds Him Close In One Of The Most Special Moments Of This Therapy Dog’s Life

It can never be stated enough: dogs are incredible. We consider them family rather than pets because the things they contribute to our lives are just off the charts. We are forever in debt to them for their loyalty and everlasting companionship. And when people need them the most, dogs always seem to be right there. Especially when it comes to a therapy dog such as Baxter.

Baxter was such a special dog and continues to be an inspiration to all. He dedicated his entire life to helping others feel as comfortable as possible during their toughest moments. At 19-and-a-half years old, Baxter was finally laid to rest after a selfless life serving people in need. But he will never be forgotten. And one of the most special moments of his life was captured on video for all to see. You’re going to want to grab the tissues for this one.

Unconscious Dog Pulled From Smoky Building Is Saved Thanks To New Firefighter Procedure

Firefighters are true heroes, and they put their lives on the line to save anyone or anything. So I’m all for anything that will make their jobs easier. Thanks to some specially-designed pet oxygen masks, firefighters have a much greater chance of saving an animal’s life after pulling one from a smoke-filled building. It makes all the difference to not have to struggle to place a mask made for a human face over a dog’s nose. The video below is a great example of how seamless this new procedure can make reviving an unconscious pet.

As said by the licensor of the video: “West Midlands Fire Service is the second largest in the UK outside of London. Fire engines based at each of its thirty-eight fire stations now carry specially-designed oxygen masks to use on pets that have been overcome by the effects of smoke in a fire. There are three reusable masks in each kit, each of different sizes, several of which have been provided by public donation and in conjunction with the Smokey Paws charity. Within days of the masks going into use, firefighters based at Billesley in Birmingham, UK used one to revive the puppy seen in the video, which was captured by firefighters on mobile phones and body-worn cameras. The animal had been overcome by smoke in a domestic fire.”

His Girlfriend Just Lost Her Dog, So He’s About To Surprise Her With The Cutest Puppy

Losing a dog is the hardest thing for any dog lover. They’re way more than just pets, they are family to us. And when we lose our faithful companions of many years, it’s heartbreaking to say the least. Nothing can replace the loyalty and love that a dog can provide.

And when this man’s girlfriend lost her dog, she was distraught. So he wanted to do something special for her 23rd birthday that would help take her mind off of things and ease the pain a bit. What better way to do that than to get her a new puppy? Now, surprising people with pets can be a bad thing if they’re not necessarily prepared to take ownership and know what it means to care for an animal. But in this case, it’s a great idea! She has lots of love to give, and this puppy needs some lovin’. 🙂

He’d Never Been Touched By A Human, But Watch When They Start To Shave Him

Hope For Paws received a call about a homeless dog who’d never had any human contact. They knew capturing him would be tricky but necessary to his survival. Wait until you see the dog that’s underneath all of that fur. This is Benji’s rescue and transformation as told by the rescuer himself:

“BENJI was a homeless dog his whole life. When Hope For Paws received the call about him, I asked Lisa Chiarelli to join me. Benji was very nervous, and when he realized that we were looking at him, he started running, and we started running after him! It was a little tricky because I had to keep an eye on him while running, and at the same time I had to set up my gentle snare AND keep my hand held camera straight – you’ll just have to see how I managed all that ;-)”

Student Asks Professor About Bringing Dog To Class Before Hurricane, His Answer Is Perfect

Jessica Lewis knew she’d have to leave directly after her last class of the day to be able to safely evacuate before Hurricane Irma rolled through the area, so she thought she’d ask. If her professor would allow her to bring her dog to class, it would work out perfectly. It was a longshot, but she decided to send Dr. Kennedy a message.


“Dr Kennedy, my name is Jessica Lewis,” she started off after working up the courage. “I realize the answer to this is probably no, but I thought that you might actually be a cool enough professor to say yes, and so I figured it was worth a shot. Can I bring my dog to class today?”
