Comfort for Toronto

After last week’s terrorist attack in Toronto, where a van crashed into a crowd killing 10 people, The Star is reporting that comfort dogs have converged on Mel Lastman Square where the tragedy took place. Nearly 20 dogs from St. John’s Ambulance were on hand to allow those affected by the attack a chance to decompress with unconditional love.

Dogs are great in this role because they don’t judge, and they don’t even mind if you get your tears on them.

With apologies for this being a little delayed. Your erstwhile blogger has been a bit snowed under after taking in three orphaned kittens who must be bottle fed every three hours!

Doggies.com and breeders.net offers our sincerest condolences to all those who lost loved ones in Toronto.

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!

Dogs Keep Owner Alive After Fall



ABC News is reporting on two Golden Retrievers who stuck with 76-year old Judy Muhe after she fell and was unable to get up. Judy’s Parkinson’s Disease makes it tough for her to keep warm, and the dogs lay next to her on the floor for two days until help arrived. I knew there was a reason I like Goldens!

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
