Shelter dog gets forever home by making his bed every day

Animal shelters are full of homeless dogs and cats. But a Pit-bull at the SICSA Adoption Center in Kettering, Ohio, stood out from the crowd.

Every day, while waiting to be adopted, Rush would make his own bed.

This captured the attention and the hearts of one couple who adopted Rush.

Little dog saves 4 tiny kittens from fire

The Jack Russell is a small dog — a type of terrier that ranges in size from 1o to 15 inches long.

Leo is a Jack Russell mix who lives with his human (a woman with four children) and animal (another dog, Barney, and four newborn kittens) family in Melbourne, Australia.

Leo may be small but he has the heart of a lion.

One night, Leo’s house caught fire. Soon, flames filled the whole house.

Leo’s human family and Barney managed to get out, but Leo refused to flee.

When the firefighters got into the building, they found little Leo lying unconscious on the ground.

When they picked him up, they noticed that four tiny and alive kittens were underneath him. Leo was keeping the kittens safe by using his body to shield them from the fire.

Fortunately, the firefighters were able to revive Leo with oxygen.

God’s creatures like little Leo are extraordinary in their courage and sacrificial love. They put us humans to shame.

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!”

Sunday Devotional: Be kind

Matthew 25:31-46

Jesus said to his disciples:
“When the Son of Man comes in his glory,
and all the angels with him,
he will sit upon his glorious throne,
and all the nations will be assembled before him.
And he will separate them one from another,
as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats.
He will place the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.
Then the king will say to those on his right,
‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father.
Inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.
For I was hungry and you gave me food,
I was thirsty and you gave me drink,
a stranger and you welcomed me,
naked and you clothed me,
ill and you cared for me,
in prison and you visited me.’
Then the righteous will answer him and say,
‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you,
or thirsty and give you drink?
When did we see you a stranger and welcome you,
or naked and clothe you?
When did we see you ill or in prison, and visit you?’
And the king will say to them in reply,
‘Amen, I say to you, whatever you did
for one of the least brothers of mine, you did for me.
Then he will say to those on his left,
‘Depart from me, you accursed,
into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.
For I was hungry and you gave me no food,
I was thirsty and you gave me no drink,
a stranger and you gave me no welcome,
naked and you gave me no clothing,
ill and in prison, and you did not care for me.’
Then they will answer and say,
‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty
or a stranger or naked or ill or in prison,
and not minister to your needs?’
He will answer them, ‘Amen, I say to you,
what you did not do for one of these least ones,
you did not do for me.’
And these will go off to eternal punishment,
but the righteous to eternal life.”


The dictionary defines the adjective “kind” as being generous, helpful, and caring. Isn’t that what the second greatest commandment’s “love your neighbor as yourself” means?
When was the last time you were kind — generous, helpful and caring — to someone in need? And when was the last time someone was kind — generous, helpful and caring — to you?
And who — in our welfare state where “charity” and “kindness” are enforced by government through confiscatory taxation — are “the least among us”? (For me, homeless and suffering animals are among “the least”.)
Here are some kindness quotes:

“Today, give a stranger one of your smiles. It might be the only sunshine he sees all day.” ~Anonymous
“Treat everyone with politeness, even those who are rude to you — not because they are nice, but because you are.” ~Anonymous
Don’t be yourself — be someone a little nicer.” ~Mignon McLaughlin, The Second Neurotic’s Notebook, 1966
You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late.” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
Three things in human life are important. The first is to be kind. The second is to be kind. And the third is to be kind.” ~Henry James

And may the peace and love and kindness of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you!
