A wise Chihuahua always says “Animals will never cease to surprise you”

You may have seen the gorilla in the UK who seems perfectly comfortable walking upright like a human. One news report even got cute with the video and put together a nice little sequence to the “Walks like a Man” tune by Franky Valli. Apparently, This gorilla’s mother and father used to stand and walk as well, though not as well as Ambam does. And though he is the biggest in his group, apparently he does not go about bullying or proving his superiority. If you haven’t seen him, check out the story of Ambam, an endangered Western lowland gorilla on CBSNews.
Animals will never cease to amaze us. Now if we (the humans) get a little smarter, perhaps we can help some animals in dire need of a chance to prove their smarts and their worth. I got a message on my Facebook profile from a group, aheartandhand.org, that has set out to help shelter dogs by training them to become service animals. Being trained will allow these perfectly lovable dogs “to help people with disabilities and give both person and dog a second chance at life.” I couldn’t agree more. PAWSOMEST IDEA EVER!!!! So please support this cause by going to the Facebook page, “liking” their cause and perhaps taking the pledge to invite your friends that share your love for dogs.
Here’s their Facebook link: http://www.facebook.com/pages/A-Heart-and-Hand-Foundation/172834826071124
And their program description: http://aheartandhand.org/homeless-dogs-need-jobs/
It seems to me this notion is more than worth a try. I’d love to see this training program catch on like wildfire in shelters across the nation. Let’s help spread the word for the cause!!
Oh, oh, and Happy Saturday Blog Hop!!!
