Ultimate Loyalty

My sister forwarded to me this article about a moving example of the ultimate loyalty from a dog. Please read the article and watch the video below:

It’s a universal truth that dogs are man’s best friend, but they’re pretty darn loyal to their own as well. Case in point: this tear-inducing video, via the website Jezebel, showing a dog, shivering and disoriented, remaining loyally by the side of a stricken fellow canine amid the devastation of the Japanese tsunami.

You can watch the video below:

The video is a stark reminder that, as was the case when Hurricane Katrina devastated the Gulf Coast in 2005, there will likely be thousands of pets orphaned or involuntarily abandoned due to the catastrophe in Japan. If you’d like to help efforts to help these animals, you can find info on doing so here.
UPDATE: CNN and the UK Telegraph have both reported that the dogs have been rescued since the footage aired, and are both receiving veterinary care; the more seriously wounded dog is at a clinic in the city of Mito, while the protective spaniel-type dog is receiving care at a shelter in the same town.
Here is an English translation of the voiceover exchange between the two reporters in the clip (translation courtesy of Toshiyuki Kitamura):

We are in Arahama area. Looks like there is a dog. There is a dog. He looks tired and dirty. He must have been caught in the tsunami. He looks very dirty.


He has a collar. He must be someone’s pet. He has a silver collar. He is shaking. He seems very afraid.


Oh, there is another dog. I wonder if he is dead.


Where?


Right there. There is another dog right next to the one sitting down. He is not moving. I wonder. I wonder if he is alright.


The dog is protecting him.


Yes. He is protecting the dog. That is why he did not want us to approach them. He was trying to keep us at bay.


I can’t watch this. This is a very difficult to watch.


Oh. Look. He is moving. He is alive. I am so happy to see that he is alive.


Yes! Yes! He is alive.


He looks to be weakened. We need to them to be rescued soon. We really want them rescued soon.


Oh good. He’s getting up.


It is amazing how they survived the tremendous earthquake and tsunami. It’s just amazing that they survived through this all.

Do you believe everything happens for a reason?

“I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they’re right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.” – Marilyn Monroe

March BFOTM: J-Mic

I’d like to introduce to you my new friend and official March FOM over at NatashaYi.com!  I met Jan Michael this past weekend at the Serramonte Ford Giveaway I attended with Wild 94.9.  He sang his song live and I instantly became his #1 fan!  I was rooting for my new friend, but the car went to someone else with a lucky break.   He did win my heart over with his infectious smile and great personality.  Be sure to check out his YouTube page.    I  ♥  J-Mic … YOU will too!!  😉

Over a million DEAD FISH?

Over a million sardines washed up dead near a California beach!  What is going on???!!  Read this article from necn.com:

Check out this massive sea of dead fish that washed up near Redondo Beach, California.

An official said there are more than a million…and are a foot deep! They believe the school of sardines were swept into the harbor by waves or the current.

The fish then used up all of the oxygen in the area, which experts believe led to the mass kill. Meanwhile, pelicans and other birds are enjoying a feeding frenzy.

BUG

Anyone watch this movie?  If you have, please tell me …  What did you think of it? Were they on drugs?  Were the bugs all in their head or did the guy originally have a situation with the bugs? Was it a mental thing? WTH??? I’m still confused.
