No limit to the goodness of dogs!

Have a look at this!

We are no strangers to dogs. But we still do hear of accounts of dogs that just leave one speechless.

Now I wouldn’t have said that dogs and birds are great buddies but this account on The Dodo is precious.

You have a read.

Dog Brings Mom An Injured Bird And Then Waits To Make Sure She’s OK

August 7th, 2020

Charlie’s family rescued him two years ago, and they’ve come to know him as one of the sweetest dogs around. He’s a very gentle soul who cares a lot about the people around him — so when Charlie saw a bird fly into a window and fall to the ground, he immediately sprang into action.

“He found the bird right after she flew into my living room window,” Elizabeth Houston, Charlie’s mom, told The Dodo.

Charlie could see that the bird wasn’t moving and needed help, so he gently picked her up in his mouth, brought her over to his mom and dropped the bird in her lap. Then, he waited. He refused to leave his mom’s side as she held the bird, and he watched her intently, waiting for the bird to wake up.

“He and my Bostons kept a close eye on me and the bird the whole time,” Houston said.

Finally, the bird woke up and started chirping — and Charlie was so excited, he couldn’t believe it.

“The look on Charlie’s face was priceless,” Houston said.

Charlie was so happy to see that his bird friend was all right, thanks to his quick thinking. Once Houston was sure that the bird was completely OK, she released her back into the yard, and Charlie was by her side as he watched his new friend fly away.

Charlie was so concerned after he saw the bird fall that he had to make sure she got the help she needed, and his family hopes that his story will help people see how sweet pit bulls really are.

It is so true that Pit Bulls have a very special and caring side to them. Indeed, half the reported problems with Pit Bulls comes from the way certain people ‘train’ them.

I must point you towards BAPBR, that stands for Born Again Pit Bull Rescue.

As BAPBR state on their home page:

We are the longest standing registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit in the Portland Metro area dedicated to improving the lives of pit bulls and their communities. As an all-volunteer run organization, we advocate for pit-bull-type dogs through community awareness and education and strive to combat misinformation, over-population, shelter crowding, low adoption and high euthanasia rates for these family dogs.

I will reach out to them and see if I can write a post about BAPBR.

But from a different source.

Once again, I feel as though I should include the introduction:

My name is Kristýna Kvapilová and I’m a dog photographer, traveler and frisbee player from the Czech Republic. I’m 21 years old and I’m the proud owner of a Canon 5D Mark IV.

When I leave my computer-based job, you can often see me somewhere on the road, traveling and exploring the world with my beautiful 7-year-old Australian Shepherd Charlie, who is my personal teacher and also the best and the most faithful model I’ve ever had! He’s a so-called professional dog model who can do many tricks, for example, lick on command.

He truly changed my entire life… I’m a photographer only thanks to him and I’m incredibly glad for that. He’s always been so patient with me and I learned a lot because of him.

In photography, I focus primarily on pets and my goal is to make the photos look somehow more special than basic photos taken in the garden. I want to bring aesthetic elements, memories or a message that can help me to communicate with the outside world. I like to capture the true nature of dogs in my portraits, their personalities.

But what I like more and more is a combination of traveling, dogs, and photography. It’s not only about the photography but also about the experience of an adventure: sleeping in a tent, getting our paws dirty and just walking in the breathtaking nature.
