[Dogs are Perfect, and a fine example of the perfect expression of love: always love you 24/7, can't get enough of you, always very pleased to see you, and will give you great hugs like a living teddy bear. A really good friend that will never let you down, one who never answers back and even loves your bullshit. Plus, they take you on walks so you feel better and can get to appreciate the beauty and perfection of nature, like they do. And they will eat any old stuff you care to throw at them, with relish! Truly, an absolute bloody miracle.]

Q. What arises between an animal and a human when they become friends? The Brown One: A new piece of friendship, that can form a space for other beings, that is, positive beings who belong to the ascending spirit. When a human makes friends with an animal, and the animal with him — as it takes two to make a friendship — spaces are created. And beings always fill up these spiritual spaces. You would include these among the harmonious elemental beings. Nature Spirits and What They Say: Interviews with Verena Stael Von Holstein by Wolfgang Weirauch
[2009 Dec] Why I'm ashamed to be
a vet: a shocking exposé of the profession that puts pets through 'painful and
unnecessary treatments to fleece their trusting owners'
Take bulldogs. They have been hideously bred to have a characteristic
collapsed face. This restricts breathing and stops them panting properly.
Ridiculous as it may seem, they have also created an animal that can't breathe
fast enough to have sex. So a bulldog must be artificially inseminated by a vet
using a general anaesthetic. Once pregnant, the
bulldog faces another dreadful side effect, again caused by breeding. Bulldogs
have such a small pelvis that most are unable to give birth naturally. So 90 per
cent of bulldogs require a Caesarean.
If the vet were truly putting the animal first, he would refuse to inseminate a bulldog in the first place. Instead, to ensure the welfare of the bulldog, vets should be insisting that pregnancies only occur in bulldogs that can mate naturally.
We have daschunds bred with elongated spines so they look 'attractive' for their breed. But these sausage dogs are prone to slipped discs and back problems which, in turn, makes more money for vets who do many operations a year to 'help' these issues (most of which do not work and cause more suffering to the dog.)
We have cats that can't breathe because of their overly flat noses and weep constantly from eyes that are too large, other cats and dogs without fur that can't go out in the sunshine as they will burn.
The current fashionable craze for miniature dogs is also damaging. These dogs are prized on their tininess - so the smallest dogs are chosen but in reality these are the runts of the litter that used to be allowed to die as they were so weak.

For the past 6 years, a German shepherd called Capitán has slept next to the grave of his owner every night at 6pm.
His owner, Miguel Guzmán died in 2006. Capitán, the dog, disappeared while the family attended the fueral services. A week later reatives of Guzmán were visiting the cemetery when they were astounded to find the dog next to the owner's grave.
The cemetery director says that the dog comes around each night at 6pm, and has done so for the past 6 years!
Heroic Mother! During an early morning response to a house fire in Santa Rosa de Temuco, Chile, firefighters witnessed the unbelievable. A mother dog risked her life to save her puppies from the fire surrounding the burning house, which started because of a car bomb. The mother dog, Amanda, raced back and forth between the house, putting her 10 day old puppies in the safest place she could find - a firetruck! She didn't stop racing back into the fire until all of her puppies were safely away from the fire. The firemen on scene could not believe their eyes. Most people have never seen a dog this smart or this brave! After rescuing all of her pups from the blaze, Amanda sat down next to them, protecting them with her body. Onlookers called an emergency veterinary service and she and her pups were rushed to the hospital. Aside from one puppy being treated for serious burns, the entire family are alive and well - thanks to the bravery of Amanda, the heroic mother! :)
