Let Ratchet Come Home

  • “Soldiers rescue puppy from a burning pile of trash back in May”
  • “10,000 people sign online petition urging Army to let puppy come home with soldier”
  • “Operation Baghdad Pups says it has gotten 50 dogs transferred to the U.S. “

    Please read this article about this poor pup  that thought he found true happiness and freedom with his hero only to find out that he may be left to die in a war zone.  I would go get him myself and take him to the soldier’s family if I could.  The solder and dog have a bond that should not be broken.  You mean to tell me that she can risk her life in the name of her country and than asks for something as easy as taking a dog back home with her and the army says NO.  That makes me SICK!! 

    Please sign Ratchet’s petition. 

    Ladies First

    Well I certainly am a believer in dogs!  I enjoyed reading this article about how puppies play.  Apparently male pups are “furry gentlemen” when playing with females in the hopes that information gained from playing will help them get the ladies in the future. 

    “Male dogs sometimes place themselves in potentially disadvantageous positions that could make them more vulnerable to attack, and researchers suspect the opportunity to play may be more important to them than winning”

    Also interesting was the portion of the article devoted to what females learn from playing with other females.  Learning how to protect oneself seems to be important there.

    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!

    Jake 911

    This is great! I love dogs.  The first time I heard this I laughed so hard my sides hurt.  I wonder if Jake has ever called China.
