Ok, you all know I’m an easy-going, fun kinda chica. There’s enough craziness in this world. I don’t need to add to that. My goal is to make my friends and humans smile and maybe brighten their day a bit. But today I must pause and voice a HUGE GRRRRRRRRRRRRRR at the “beast” who dumped a little Chihuahua puppy out of a car at a Colorado 7-11!!! Watch this disturbing story on KKTV.com
To the “human” and I use that term way tooooo loosely here: What were you thinking?!?!? The puppy tried to chase after your car. It could have been run over. It is winter, and a horrible winter season at that. What if someone had NOT been able to catch the puppy?!?!?! The fact that you chose a public place I hope means that you were “thinking” that someone would find the puppy. That is all I can give you. What happened to the “humane” part of being human. Though this is something I’d dispute, isn’t that what separates humans from the beasts. I’m glad this is considered a crime in your area. I do hope you are found and brought to justice. THERE are soooooooo many alternatives. I don’t care how desperate you were. There is NO excuse for this.
I guess I’m extra irked because my gramma has been helping in the care of another little Chihuahua that was abandoned in a similar situation in Kansas City. A little fluff of no more than 3-lb. Chihuahua was spotted in a ditch by a highway nearly frozen to death. It is a miracle that someone spotted a little movement and stopped to investigate. She was emaciated and very week, and her beautiful lustrous eyes were in dire straights as her tear ducts had dried from the exposure. A kind soul rushed her to another kid soul, a vet, who volunteered his services and performed the necessary surgery to save her vision. My gramma reports that she is in a kind foster home, right across the street from her. She has been helping minister the eye drops she now needs on a daily basis. But the sweet little NOEL, as she has been named because of the season during which she was rescued, has proven to be a truly gentle and loving soul. Grateful and loving to all of those who are taking care of her. She has put on some weight in her recovery and her lovely long coat is filling back in nicely.
PEOPLE, PLEASE!!!!!!! If you need help, FIND help!! There are soooooo many rescue groups, no-kill shelters, agencies and services out there. If you can no longer care for a pet, please don’t do anything desperate.
Anipals, on this Saturday Pet Blogger Hop, let’s help spread the word and the prayers that this kind of cruelty stop!!

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!!!
Sign up and pass on some pet wisdom!!

So the Huff Post had the audacity to include this noble breed in an “Adorable Or Ugly? Controversial Pets And Wild Animals” photo gallery a few days ago. Hrmph! How dare they?!?!?!?! There need be no pondering on this issue!
Oh, I take offense! And on sooooooo many levels:
2. “Faithful, adorable companion” OR “the quivering sidekick“?!?!?!?! I do not “quiver.” I have a unique method of maintaining body temperature. Self sufficient and very green, if you ask me!
3. And a mere “sidekick”?!?!?!?! I AM The Princess, I’ll have you know!
4. Ahhhh … “sidekick of obnoxious blonds everywhere”?!?!?!?! Whatcha talking about? Don’t you mess with my Mama!! Those artfully conceived highlights or hers are haute coifure, Amigo!
Chicos, the way I see it, this means war!!!!! Obviously they tried to get away with this outrage while Mom was out of town and I could not post my vehement objections. But let it be known to all those responsible that they have now incurred the wrath of one ticked-off Chihuahua Princess! Beware, I have muchos cousins, Amigos. Your ankles are now fair game! Terror alert, POSTED!

I just had to take a moment share this amazing Chihuahua story from Jacksonville.com. It brought a tear to my eyes, chicos. Love it IS a miraculous thing. Take a lonely man. And a lonely rescued animal. Add in the quirks of fate that brought them together and BAM, it is Kismet, and better yet, it is true love!
Read this story and hug your loved ones a little tighter. And remember, it is NEVER too late for love. Rescued animals ROCK!!!
