  1. Great photo! Wish you would identify the beautiful images you post every Saturday on Open Thread.

    • There’s a little X at the bottom that you can click on to go to the original post.

    • The link below the photo featured here leads to a series of pictures of the Wildlife Protection Dog Unit of Lower Zambezi. My first take on the photo was that the man and his K9 partner were probably tracking poachers. I am not sure that is their assignment but this, and the others, suggest that the Wildlife Protection officers and their dogs are training to detect illegal game and/or poachers. Lovely depiction of the human-dog partnership.

    Here’s a dose of instant karma: man was shot by a puppy he was trying to kill.

    The MSPCA takes in a “stray” cat from someone who lived 20 miles away from them. They then only give him two days before killing him. Because it was too much work to take care of him.

      They “did the best they could”.

      Yep. The best they could. Wonder if they did a damn thing to find the owner before killing the cat?

  6. While I was looking up Henderson AC for today’s post, I came across this little dog. Please share her wherever you normally post adoptable pets. TY.

    Someone in Fayetteville, NC is probably frantically searching for their border collie but not finding it because the pound staff have apparently never heard if a border collie and say it’s an Aussie greyhound mix.
