Fight Against Maturity

Hmmm. Food for thought. (Thanks, Alan)

Having Inner Strength

If you can start the day without caffeine

If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains

If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles

If you can eat the same food every day and be grateful for it

If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time

If you can take criticism and blame without resentment

If you can conquer tension without medical help

If you can relax without adult beverages

If you can sleep without the aid of drugs

Then you are probably the family dog

World’s oldest dog?

oldest dog crown

A couple claim their Labrador cross is the oldest dog in the world. The owners of Bella say that she is at least 29 years old, reports the Daily Telegraph.

Owner David Richardson, 76, said he got the mixed breed dog from an animal home about 26 years ago when she was at least three years old. That would make Bella’s age more than 200 years in canine years.

Deer friends

Doe-eyed Cindy would have been left all alone in the world were it not for the strong paternal instincts of the Great Dane, who is as protective of her as he is his puppies.

Staff at the Secret World Animal Rescue Centre in Highbridge, Somerset, have been caring for Cindy since she was found close to death when she was days old.

The [125 pound] dog towers over his spotted companion, who he gently nuzzles and accompanies on daily walks, ever watchful.

The two-week-old fawn returns the affection by rushing over to her trusted friend whenever she is in need of reassurance.
