Lion in Zoo Remembers His Rescuer With A Beautiful Hug

The woman in this video found the lion injured in the forest ready to die. She took the lion home with her and nursed it back to health. When it was better, she made arrangements with a zoo to take the lion and give it a new home.

The video was taken when, after six years, the woman went to visit the lion at the zoo.

And if you like that, here’s the viral video of the two then young men in England who adopted a baby lion and later released it to the lion’s natural habitat.  Years later, they returned to see if they could find it and if it would remember them.  Whether you’ve seen this already or not, get the tissues out.  (Don’t worry-nobody is eaten).

COLD SORES!!! Horribly embarrassing. You can only hide out so much until it heals. Use a dab of Cold Sores Begone™ to prevent the entire ordeal.

Have You Seen the Viral Video, The Animal Odd Couple (a Dog and an Elephant)?

The Elephant Sanctuary in Hohenwald, TN, exists for two reasons:

  • To provide a haven for old, sick, or needy elephants in a setting of green pastures, hardwood forests, spring-fed ponds, and heated barns for cold winter nights.
  • To provide education about the crisis facing these social, sensitive, passionately intense, playful, complex, exceedingly intelligent, and endangered creatures.

At this sanctuary is a dog, Bella, and elephant, Tarra, who have been best friends for years.  They are inseparable.  One day, Bella had a spinal cord injury and was paralyzed.  Don’t worry, this has a happy ending, but watch the short video to see the effect this had on Tarra:

“Echo: Queen of the Elephants, is a must see documentary by the same filmmakers as PLANET EARTH.  It tells the story of Echo, the elephant matriarch, as she battles the elements on the last journey of her celebrated life. Each day is a new fight for survival and an opportunity for triumph for Echo and her family.  As she nears the end of her life, she must find the strength to win her final battle, to save her family as she prepares to pass on the reigns of her African kingdom.  Coming up on Animal Planet on Mar 11, 2010, 9pm EST; Mar 12th, 2010, 12:00 am EST:  and Mar 12th, 2010, 4am EST. 

Unravel the Mystery of Your Mixed-Breed Pup With A Simple DNA Test

I own two mixed-breed dogs, both adopted.  Each favor the looks of a specific breed but its apparent there’s a mix of some kind, but which is just a guess.  Curiosity gets the best of me sometimes, especially with Noodles, the darker dog.  Would you like to meet them???
This is Molly, 2 1/2 yrs old. Cocker/Dachshund?

Noodles, the newest member of the family, adopted one month ago. About the same age as Molly. I’m told he’s a Dachshund/King Charles Cavalier, but I don’t know about that.

There’s a reason, other than curiousity, to know the breeds in your dog’s background :

  • Explaining behavior
  • Help in training
  • Managing health can perform a DNA-based diagnostic test to give you the answer.  $80 per dog.

Cesar Millan’s Pit Bull, Daddy, Passed Away Yesterday

Cesar Millan, all his family and friends, his staff and volunteers, and dog lovers all around the world today will mourn the passing of one of the most loyal, trusting, well-balanced, and influential pit bull ambassadors the world has ever known. Daddy, Cesar’s longtime friend and partner in canine rehabilitation, died peacefully surrounded by family on Friday the 19th of February. He was sixteen years old.

I hadn’t realized that Daddy was a cancer survivor.  I’ve also lost beloved pets, my heart goes out to Cesar.  Watching the Dog Whisperer, it becomes clear just how much he loved this dog.   Very sad.
