Boy sells his pokemon cards to save his dog

You know I love a good boy and his dog story, well just about the only thing a boy may love about as much as his dog is his pokemon cards.  Bryson Kliemann’s Pokémon card collection is his most prized possession. But the 8-year-old boy from Lebanon, Va., decided to sell it to save his dog’s life. When Bryson learned that the 4-month-old puppy, Bruce, needed an expensive medical treatment to survive, he knew he had to do something. “Bruce got sick and needed my help,” Bryson said. “I was super sad. I didn’t want to lose my best friend.” He hatched a plan to sell the beloved Pokémon card collection that he had been accumulating since he was 4...

Jasmine the Greyhound

Poor Jasmine the Greyhound was a stray dog who was discovered alone, shaking, and starving in a locked garage. A cop had found her and brought the dog to a wildlife sanctuary where she was nursed back to health. The incredible thing about this story is that, unlike most abandoned and abused dogs, Jasmine was gentle and nurturing. As soon as she began to feel better, she immediately began helping other strays that came in feel better. She was a foster dog mother to puppies, kittens, foxes, chicks, Guinea pigs, bunnies, and even a deer during the better half of her life.  Fetched from fetchpetcare.com

Workers at a North Carolina Dollar store told animal control officers that they caught a Lab mix dog darting into Dollar General every time a customer exited. Each time the stray dog made it in, he grabbed the same plush purple unicorn toy.

But what evidence we have indicates that dogs can form new loving relationships much more easily and don’t seem to have the same level of trauma from being taken away from preexisting loving relationships.

Dogs in Space

We can all name famous human astronauts, but did you know that over 20 dogs have been to outer space? During the ‘Space Race’ of the 1950’s and 60’s, scientists from the Soviet Union used dogs as test subjects to pioneer space travel. The first pooches to exit the Earth were Tsygan and Dezik, in 1951. This journey, which returned home safely, was what we call a ‘suborbital flight.’ That means that although it traveled into space, it didn’t enter orbit but stayed at the border of the atmosphere. Entering orbit was a lot trickier.  Two other dogs, Belka and Strelka, later made a triumphant return from an orbital adventure. President John F. Kennedy even received one of Strelka’s puppies...
