Dogs save lost toddler and woman assaulted by 2 men

Dogs truly are remarkable creatures.

Below are two true-life accounts of humans who owe their lives to heroic dogs.

(1) Homeless dog saves vacationing woman attacked by two men

The Telegraph reports, August 20, 2015, that Georgia Bradley, 25, a student at UK’s Plymouth University, and her boyfriend were vacationing in the Greek islands.

One day, Bradley decided to take a walk alone on a beach in the small town of Georgioupoli, Crete, her boyfriend at a nearby café, when she was surrounded by two aggressive men who grabbed her when she rejected their advances.

Just at that moment, a small, black dog “appeared from nowhere” and started barking at the men, scaring them off.

Bradley said: “I decided to go for a walk along the beach, and found two Greek men who kept harassing me to go out for a drink. I kept telling them I didn’t want to. Then one of them grabbed me on the arm and I didn’t know what was going to happen. I was on my own and it was a very scary and difficult situation.” Bradley said the dog must have noticed something was wrong and “saved her”. 

After the incident, the little dog followed Bradley back to her apartment. Bradley said they had an instant bond, and that she believed the dog, whom she called Pepper, was abandoned as she had seen it wandering around the town alone. She said: “Pretty much every evening we saw her around outside the bars and restaurants, trying to get the attention of the tourists. Every time we got close to her she wouldn’t let you stroke her. She was very gentle, but was too scared to let you close.”

Bradley tried to persuade a local animal shelter to take Pepper, but was unsuccessful, and eventually had to return home to Calstock, Cornwall, England. She said: “When we left to go to the airport, we looked back and Pepper was running after the car. It was heartbreaking. When I got home I couldn’t stop thinking about her so I took the soonest flight back out that I could, which was two weeks later.”

But Pepper was nowhere to be seen. Bradley spent five weeks trying to find the stray, which took two further trips to Crete. Eventually, Bradley found Pepper on the same beach where the little dog had saved the woman from the two men.

After the dog was confirmed as a stray, Bradley had Pepper microchipped, wormed with a rabies jab, and given a pet passport. Pepper had to spend 21 days in quarantine in boarding kennels but was eventually allowed to travel to Britain.

When Bradley returned to Crete for a third time to collect Pepper, she was greeted with a surprise: The kennel owner told her that Pepper, a Terrier Poodle Cross, was pregnant!

A week after arriving back in the UK, Pepper gave birth to six puppies.

Bradley said: “It has been such a crazy journey. But I am over the moon. Pepper has settled in brilliantly.”

(2) Old deaf-and-blind dog saves toddler

ABC News reports, April 20, 2018, that 3-year-old Aurora was reported missing about 3 pm on Friday after she wandered off in wet weather in the rugged bushland of her family’s rural property in Queensland’s Southern Downs, Australia.

But a search of woodlands and hills on the rural property found no trace of her.

On Saturday morning, more than 100 State Emergency Service (SES) volunteers, police and members of the public resumed the search.

At around 8 am, 15 hours after Aurora had gone missing, Leisa Bennett, Aurora’s grandmother, was calling out to the girl when she heard Aurora cry, “Grammy!”.

Bennett said she “shot up the mountain” and when she got to the top, Max, the 17-year-old deaf and partially-blind family dog, came right up to Bennett and led her straight to the girl. Bennett said Max had stayed next to Aurora all night: “She smelled of dog, she slept with the dog.” 

SES area controller Ian Phipps said Aurora was about 1½ miles from the family home: “The area around the house is quite mountainous and is very inhospitable terrain to go walking in, so she’d travelled quite a distance with her dog that was quite loyal to her. The search was actually quite hard where the volunteers and the police were, amongst the very steep slopes full of lantana and other vegetation.”

Phipps said Aurora suffered minor cuts and abrasions but was otherwise well and it was a wonderful outcome for the family and searchers. He said: “With the weather last night it’s quite lucky she is well because it was cold, it was cold and raining. She’s a very hardy young lass to survive that without any ill effects and everyone, all the volunteers are extremely happy.”

For his good work in keeping the little girl safe, Max has now been declared an honorary police dog by the Queensland Police.

Dog says ‘No’ when told to go in his kennel

If you have pets, do you sometimes think that your dog or cat can almost speak human?

I’ve posted about some remarkable creatures who really seem to speak words:

Add to the above remarkable creatures a Siberian Husky named Brian who likes sleeping on the couch so much that when he is told by his human to go into his own “house” (kennel), the dog repeatedly says “No”.

Don’t believe me?

Listen for yourself in the video below, especially at the end.

Is Time Going Faster For You, Too?

Note: This post was first published in July 2011, but I’m republishing it because a reader recently commented that time seems to be going by faster. If time is hastening for you too and, given the terrible times we find ourselves in — the seemingly-intractable COVID-19 pandemic, and the radical Left’s unconstrained tearing-down of statues, monuments, and America itself — I can’t help but wonder if this is the quickening of end times. What do you think?

———————————————————————————————–

It is said that “the older you get, the faster time goes by.”

All of us would agree that, indeed, the days and months were as slow as molasses when we were children, in contrast to how much faster the years went by in our adulthood.

Even granted that, I’ve noticed that in the last few months, time seems to be zipping at an accelerated rate.

The main marker of my week is Sunday, which begins in a frenzy of activity as I dash about doing my morning chores, followed by a last singing rehearsal; then shower and get dressed for 8:30am Mass.

For the last several months, however, it seems that Sundays are coming around quicker and quicker. My husband, too, has the same disquieting subjective sense of time speeding by, faster and faster.

But it’s not just us.

On May 2, 2010, David Icke wrote that “Time, in my life anyway, and I know for others too, is just flying this year. What’s happening?”

Is time objectively going faster?

Down the rabbit hole we go!

That is a question for physicists and cosmologists to answer. There is an ongoing debate on the Physics Forum on whether as the universe expands, time also is speeding up. I also found a PDF document, “The Quickening: Is Time Accelerating?,” which says:

Recently, scientists have been shocked to discover that their measurements indicate the expansion of the universe is actually increasing. Rather than slowing down, as their Big Bang theory postulates, astronomers have been stunned to learn that the expansion of the universe appears to be accelerating. CNN reports “Scientists are scratching their heads over a finding that indicates the universe, rather than slowing down, is being expanded by a mysterious force at an accelerating rate. […] Would this affect the dimension we call time? We on earth do not understand time well enough to draw any conclusions.”

Then there are the Apocalypse 2012 people who claim that it’s not just our subjective sense of time speeding, but that time indeed is quickening because our Earth’s heartbeat is accelerating:

Scientists discovered many years ago that the earth gives off a pulse. This pulse or frequency which has been likened to a heartbeat has been stable at approximately 7.8 cycles per second for thousands of years. However, since around the year 1980 the earth’s heartbeat began to speed up. It has currently been measured at 12 cycles per second but the most incredible thing is some scientists believe the earth will actually stop rotating when this pulse reaches 13 cycles per second. When the earth stops rotating on its axis it is believed that it will remain still for around 3 days and then start spinning in the other direction. This will cause a reversal in the magnetic field around the earth but what will happen after this point is unclear.

This pulse is the Schumann Resonance (SR). So I looked up SR on Wikipedia:

The Schumann resonances (SR) are a set of spectrum peaks in the extremely low frequency (ELF) portion of the Earth’s electromagnetic field spectrum…named after physicist Winfried Otto Schumann who predicted it mathematically in 1952. Schumann resonances occur because the space between the surface of the Earth and the conductive ionosphere acts as a closed waveguide [that acts] as a resonant cavity for electromagnetic waves in the ELF band…. In the normal mode descriptions of Schumann resonances, the fundamental mode is a standing wave in the Earth–ionosphere cavity with a wavelength equal to the circumference of the Earth…at a frequency of approximately 7.83 Hz […] Lightning discharges are considered to be the primary natural source of Schumann resonance excitation…. At any given time there are about 2000 thunderstorms around the globe. Producing ~50 lightning events per second, these thunderstorms create the background Schumann resonance signal.

Nothing in the article on Earth’s Schumann Resonance quickening or of the Earth stopping its rotation when the SR reaches 13 cycles per second, or of the Earth’s magnetic poles flipping.

Back to the PDF document “The Quickening“. It asks:

If an acceleration of time is occurring, is it anticipated in the Bible? When describing the Great Tribulation period, Jesus stated: “And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened” (Matthew 24:22). […] Do other Scriptures indicate a speed-up of time in the last days? While there is no single Scripture that specifically states that time will speed up, several passages imply a quickening during earth’s final days.

Jesus likened the last days’ signs to birth pangs (Matthew 24:8). […] In addition, the apostle Paul reminded us that “the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now” (Romans 8:21-22). As the time of delivery draws near, birth pangs always increase in both intensity and frequency.

Indeed, the dictionary says one of the meanings of the word “quicken” or “quickening” is “To reach the stage of pregnancy when the fetus can be felt to move.”

So, have you also felt that time is speeding by, faster and faster?

Rescue baby squirrel is taxi-driver’s constant companion

Pyotr Pankratau, a former soldier in the Belarusian army, found a baby squirrel on the verge of death.

Pyotr took the squirrel and nursed it back to health, feeding it with milk through a syringe. He named the squirrel Masik.

When Pyotr left the army, he brought little Masik with him.

Pyotr became a taxi-driver, with Masik as his constant companion.

Masik even has his own little bed in the taxi.

Pyotr said: “I took him with me everywhere. In the army, everywhere. So he got used to this. Masik has a standard route at home, too – eating, then sleeping, from the kitchen to either under the blanket or to the wardrobe. He likes to sleep with me, close to my neck. He is very independent. There are no better animals.”
