Guys hike for hours in Taiwan to save dog who lost front paws

A happy story to start your Monday (and give you a break from the demoRATS’ Alinsky ploy to destroy Kavanaugh)!

From the Animal Care Trust Facebook post:

Sandy had lost both front feet to hunters’ leg-hold traps. The sweet little dog will soon have his professionally made prosthetic legs, which our vet is ordering from the US. We can’t wait! But, for now, he’s very happy, much loved by Bob Chau, and, apart from missing two front feet, he’s very healthy.

Huge thanks to Ross Td of Taiwan Adventures hiking specialists for getting us up and down safely, and to Lazy Lease for getting us up and down safely, and to Lazy Lease for calling in the rescue when she spotted Sandy and his appalling injuries while hiking in that very remote location.

And thanks to Sandy for making a very difficult rescue much easier than it would have been if he was bigger or less friendly!”

Tuesday Funnies!

I was talking with a homeless man this morning and asked him how he ended up this way.

He said, “Up until last week, I still had it all. I had plenty to eat; my clothes were washed and pressed; I had a roof over my head; I had HDTV and Internet; and I went to the gym, the pool, and the library. I was working on my MBA on-line. I had no bills and no debt. I even had full medical coverage!”

I felt sorry for him, so I asked, “What happened? Was it drugs, alcohol, divorce?”

“Oh no. Nothing like that,” he said.

(Wait for It)

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

A Mormon was wandering around in a field, thinking about how good his wife, a former Baptist, had been to him and how fortunate he was to have her.

He asked God, “Why did you make her so kind-hearted?”

The Lord responded, “So you could love her, my son.”

“Why did you make her so good-looking?”

“So you could love her, my son.”

“Why did you make her such a good cook?”

“So you could love her, my son.”

The man thought about this. Then he said, “I don’t mean to seem ungrateful or anything, but why did you make her so stupid?”

“So she could love you, my son.”

And if you’ve lost the joy of innocence, take heart from this video of God’s creatures — dogs, cats, goats, sheep, foxes and even black bears — having great fun jumping on a trampoline.

Friday Funnies: Animals with floor and water phobia

These guinea pigs seem convinced that the wooden floor is a river of fire.

Watch them strenuously avoid making contact with the wooden floor as they leap from rug to rug. LOL

Some cats go to great lengths to avoid getting their feet wet. LOL

Those sneaky squirrels…

We have a couple bird feeders, bird houses and a bird bath on our property. This of course attracts the squirrels who use the bird bath and eat the fallen seed.

This past spring, Finches used the bird house in the front twice to nest and lay eggs. The bird house in the back yard, designed with a larger opening for the Mourning Doves, has never been used.

Now I know why…

Those squirrels sure are agile creatures!

Woman saves wingless bee, who became her pet

This post was originally published on July 10, 2018, but WordPress has memory-holed it, although supposedly all of FOTM was “exported” to a zip file after the overlords of WordPress took burned down FOTM in the dark early-morning hours of August 15, 2018.

So I’m re-publishing it.

 

This is a very moving story of a woman named Fiona who found a wingless bee and provided a home and food for the little bee, who became her pet.

 Then I saw heaven opened

…and behold, a white horse!

The one sitting on it is called Faithful and True

…and in righteousness he judges and makes war. His eyes are like a flame of fire, and on his head are many diadems, and he has a name written that no one knows but himself. He is clothed in a robe dipped in blood, and the name by which he is called is The Word of God. And the armies of heaven, arrayed in fine linen, white and pure, were following him on white horses. From his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations, and he will rule them with a rod of iron. He will tread the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God the Almighty. On his robe and on his thigh he has a name written, King of kings and Lord of lords.

Revelation 19:11-16

Homeless pup brings gifts to woman who feeds him

A kind woman in Thailand, Orawan Kaewla-iat, feeds the strays near her home to help homeless dogs.

Unlike humans, where no good deed goes unpunished, the dogs are grateful to Orawan for her kindness.

One pup named Tua Plu comes to Orawan’s place every day with his mom looking for food.

But Tua Plu doesn’t come empty-handed. He always brings a gift in exchange for the food. The gift is usually a leaf or sometimes a piece of paper, but it’s the thought that counts.

In the video below, you can see Tua Plu approach with a twig in his mouth, then  places the twig down by the bowl of rice before he starts eating.

There is also a longer video of Tua Plu carrying a yellow leaf in his mouth for several minutes. When he is offered a snack, the pup drops the leaf and takes the snack in his mouth, leaving the leaf on the ground, which shows the pup meant the leaf as a gift to the kind woman who feeds him.

Abused old elephant moved to tears by man playing piano for her

Animal Channel reports, Aug. 23, 2018, that Paul Barton is an English artist and pianist who love animals.

In 1996, Barton moved to Thailand, where he met his future wife, Khwan, a wildlife artist and animal activist. Through her, Barton became especially interested in helping Thailand’s elephants.

Barton learned that Thailand went through a period of rapid deforestation from 1975 to 1986 when companies cut down trees for teak wood, without any concern for the animals who were losing their homes.

Elephants were some of the animals that suffered the most during this time. Many companies forced elephants to carry heavy logs for them, and the elephants would often get scratched and bloodied by sharp twigs and branches.

In 1989, Thailand’s government finally banned commercial timber logging. But the elephants continued to suffer, having lost their homes with nowhere to go.

Many conservationists and animal lovers set up sanctuaries for the abused and neglected elephants. Barton visited one of these sanctuaries, ElephantsWorld, and fell in love with the elephants there. He recognized that elephants had great empathy and emotions, so he started playing classical music for the elephants, calling his program Music for Elephants. The elephants love listening to his playing—they’ll often stand right next to the piano, moving their ears and trunk in time to the music.

Barton told Coconuts Bangkok:

“The first time I played piano at Elephants World, a blind elephant called Plara was closest to the piano by coincidence. He was having his breakfast of bana grass, but when he heard the music for the first time, he suddenly stopped eating with the grass protruding from his mouth and stayed motionless all through the music.”

In the video below, Barton plays Debussy’s “Clair de Lune” for Amphan, an 80-year-old elephant who has had a very tough life. She is blind in one eye and has trouble seeing out of the other eye.

As Barton plays for her, Amphan stands completely still, looking transfixed. When the cameraman zooms in on her face, you can see her crying.

After Barton is finished playing, he gives Amphan a hug.
