And we save dogs!

Only right that we save dogs as well.

(I couldn’t have asked for a better post to follow yesterday’s post on dogs saving us.)

As seen on the Lady Freethinker’s site.


Tiny Dog Rescued from Mexico Rubble 6 Days After Quake

Posted by Nina Jackel | September 26, 2017

Six days after Mexico City was ravaged by an earthquake, there seemed little hope of finding anyone alive among the rubble.

But a Japanese rescue team was thrilled to find one more tiny survivor — a schnauzer, who they managed to pull from the ruins of a collapsed apartment building.

The lucky dog was checked out by vets, and had somehow managed to remain in good health. Authorities now hope to reunite the schnauzer with her family as soon as possible.

Thank you to rescuers who travelled from around the world to save lives — both human and animal — in the wake of this tragic disaster.


The video and news item was carried by the New York Post and for reasons I am unsure about I couldn’t include the video in this post. But you can view that video by going here. Luckily other newspapers carried the wonderful event and the following photograph appeared in The Independent newspaper two days ago.

My guess is that dogs and humans have been saving each other for thousands of years and long may it continue.

      1. And I may be calling you, in a manner of speaking, to listen to that relationship expressed by you. In connection with my next book. Tomorrow’s post will explain.


      1. Fine, although we could do with some rain. Our fat cat had an op Tuesday to remove 5 kidney stones. Now she’s under 24hr bandage surveillance 🙂


      2. Our dry spell was broken last week with more rain forecast for this coming weekend. Sorry to hear that about your cat but five kidney stones!! Very much better out than in! Cuddles for the cat from Jeannie and me.
