Buddy 911

Remember Jake the amazing dog?  Well, he is not the only dog who calls 911.  Buddy, a german sheperd, assists his human by calling 911 when his human has a seizure.  This is truly remarkable!

    If more people had pets, less people would get into trouble, IMO. I know my kitties have made me calmer and more centered.

    Yes, pets are good for people. I know my dogs have help me through a lot. I am glad your cats have helped you. Tell them hi for me.

    As far as people staying out of trouble goes, I think it depends on the kind of trouble they would get into. Some people should not be allowed to have pets.

    Yes, some people shouldn’t even have plants.

    “some people shouldn’t even have plants”- Most definitely. Animals can’t defend themselves very well against abusive humans, but plants can’t defend themselves at all.

    There is a row of 4 bushes I can see from my apartment window. They are planted on the berm between the parking lot and the fence. One of the bushes is much smaller than the others, and every fall the 3 or 4 leaves on the tiny bush turn red, as leaves will do. It’s charming. A couple weeks ago I looked out my window and saw a small boy beating the tiny bush into splinters with a plastic sword while a smaller boy looked on. Their mothers were about 20 feet away, chatting with each other. When the boy had satisfied his aggression, and everybody had left the lot, I went out to the splintered bush and offered thoughts of strength and love. I put the dislodged much back around the roots and gave it 2 cups of water. After my gestures, I felt better.

    that’s horrible! we can sympathize. we put some geraniums out a couple of months ago. four of the six pots were stolen one of the first nights we had them. another night one of the survivors was used as an ashtray by some of our neighbors.

    Well acually 3 were stolen. I cried! I could not believe anyone would do that. I am sure they were not cared for. on a good note 2 of the remaining plants did very well under A’s care. as a mater of fact the last one just died a few days ago.

    Wow I thought I was sheltered!

    When I was living in Hawaii I rented a small garden plot in a large community garden in Honolulu. The individual garden plots were arranged in rows and columns, with about a couple feet grass separating each garden. Apparently a “nice Puerto Rican lady” rented my plot before I did, because often while tending my garden, an angry woman would walk over and demand to know what I was doing in the nice Puerto Rican lady’s garden. I explained many times that it was my garden and I was renting it, and had been doing so for a couple months without any protest from the absent Puerto Rican lady. I took a bus and walked approximately 2 hours each way from Kahaluu to Honolulu to tend my garden. I planted a variety of herbs, vegetables, and flowers, and a row of fruit tree saplings. One day I showed up and found trash in my garden, the plants trampled, and each sapling painstakingly bent and snapped in the middle. I pushed the tree roots back into the soil, and did some weeding and watering. That was my last visit.

    WOW!! people can really go out of their way to be horrable. The planet would be much beter off if people would use ALL that energy for good. I am sorry that happened to you.
