I was all choked up while watching. I have not seen that movie, but this video clip seems to summarize it very well. Thank you, Macdoum.

I am a little scared to watch it. I am not sure how much more crying I can actively take on.

(Just looking at the picture of Faith, Hope and Lily had me crying.)

All you dog-lovers must help your doggie to wait for Santa Claus:

I think Sam will just put out an empty bowl and wait for the treats, or lick my nose until I get the treats out for him.

Not sure where this should go

It is just a video of a Hen Harrier hunting (well at the end I think she is getting harried), it is set to rather lovely music, which is a bit louder than necessary.

Beautiful, Alice. I would almost have thought it was an owl based on the shape of the head & how the eye area looks. Lovely bird.

And now, a heart warming story I found.



And here is how it all turned out.

I suppose it is possible that the puppy walked into the canyon, but I am going to bet someone encouraged the poor thing.

Sometimes I despair.

It's not all bad, the story comes out fine, don't be afraid to watch. I just wish the bad bits had never happened.

Yes, the little dog looks very happy in the end & has a wonderful, loving home. :loveshower: He may have wandered into those slot canyons somehow by himself, but I think somebody deliberately took him in there. But now he has a good life.
