Chihuahua Cutie!

Awwww! This picture is so beautiful and cute at the same time. ;) A special thanks to Victoria for sending in this picture of Geishy on their trip to Washington. It must be mentioned that there is no Photoshopping on this image, just pure cuteness and great photography.

Another Naked Bird!

OH no! :lol: This one's a penguin from California. His name is Pierre and he's 25 years old. Turns out, Pierre was suffering from baldness which left him with a naked butt and back. As you probably know ;) penguins need their feathers to protect them from the icy cold water. Well, Pierre couldn't go swimming, poor thing, so his caretakers got in touch with some dive gear makers and they decided to help by designing him a special penguin wet suit! Now Pierre the penguin can enjoy the water again and not worry about freezing his little tail. By the way, turns out these species of penguin only live to be 20 but Pierre here is 25! niiiiice

Bosnian Bear is rescued

Just when you think everything sucks we see something that renews our faith in humanity. This is the story of Miljen, a bear that was captured by hunters back in 2000 and bought by a mobster to show off his machismo :roll:

Miljen's mommy had been killed by the hunters and the poor cub was left to the "protection" of the mobster. Well, the macho mobster was busted in 2005 and poor Miljen was left abandoned. Neighbors took pity on him and were keeping him alive by feeding him bread. Miljen lost a lot of weight and was about to die when he was discovered by a Serbian film-maker who was filming in the area. Soon, animal protection groups began a campaign to rescue Miljen and take him to a sanctuary in Normandy.

After all this time, the bear can finally be accepted into the EU. People had to fatten him up and make him healthy in order for him to be accepted but he can finally be free. This Tuesday he is traveling in a well equipped, vet monitored van and he will arrive at his sanctuary where he is to be joined by two female bears!!! OMG :mrgreen:

Miljen will arrive later this week and the poor baby can finally meet other bears like him after being alone in a cage for 8 years. Yay for Miljen!! :mrgreen:

Bad Economy and abandoned pets

Everyday we hear something new about the deteriorating economy. How people are losing their homes due to foreclosures, how they have to move to smaller places where pets are not allowed. It is very sad and unfortunately those worse off are people that were struggling to begin with. Across the country, from New York to Detroit, here in Chicago and all the way to California people have had to take the tough decision of getting rid of their animals. It's understandable, I mean, dog food is expensive and vet care is really costly. However, it is being reported that more and more people are abandoning their pets on the street. Shelters are at full capacity and people keep bringing their pets in because they can no longer afford them. It is very sad because a pet is a friend, almost part of your family. In times of crisis you don't abandon your kids so it doesn't make sense to abandon an animal that has been with you for years. Be it a bird, a rabbit, a cat or a dog, these animals care for you because you're the only people they consider family.

If you know someone that is struggling let them know that their animals are better at a shelter than on the street. These are house animals, spoiled creatures that don't know how to take care of themselves. They get run over by cars, they get picked up by bad people that torture them, they can even get sent to experiment facilities to die a miserable death. Don't leave them on the street and do what you can to keep your animals. There is also the possibility of waiting it out. Your dog can even survive eating table scraps! Dogs have been doing that for hundreds of years. Might get diarrhea at first but dogs in poor countries live like this everyday.

Well, I just felt I had to bring attention to this because many people out there can use some information and encouragement. Have some heart, help others and help animals.

It was an April Fool's Joke! Ha!

I hope you guys didn't fall for that video floating around the internet yesterday. It was supposed to be about a documentary where some filmmaker had discovered a colony of penguins that fly due to the climate change. Well, penguins still can't fly, how sad :( but it is pretty cool to see what they would look like in the air. Imagine St. Peter's plaza full of penguins! :lol: Would the air smell like fish?





Puppy and Duck Best Friends

Here's another friendship to melt your hearts. That duck has a bodyguard for life cuz when the dog grows up he's gonna be pretty tough. what is it? Like a husky or shepherd mix?





Cat Poses

These lazy kitties, cant' they just sleep like in the old days?

Cute and Sad

I wouldn't know if this is sadder than it is cuter. That cast is way too big. :lol: or maybe it's the puppy that's way too small. Oh! the confusion!
