  • An INCREDIBLE Canine Journey!

    Posted by Bear

    The Grapengeter family, of Fairbanks, Alaska, was recently reunited with their missing dog. Abby, 8, is blind and ran away on December 13th. Veterinarian Mark May noticed a strange dog running with his sled team just six days later on December 19th; sure enough, it was Abby! The next day, Abby showed up at his front door.

     

    May says, “Everybody just assumed it was some kind of scaredy-cat, but there it was in front of the door in our dog lot and it was blind. It was sitting there, all the way from 14 mile on the winter trail down into this neighborhood, I guess by just sniffing, so I picked it up and brought it in. Despite spending a week in the cold, the dog was healthy and had no signs of frostbite.''

     

    May used social media sites to connect with the Grapengeters.

     

     

    Have YOU ever helped a lost pup find his way home?



  • A Memorial Poem from Newtown CT

    A memorial Poem from Newton, CT...Author Unkwown

     

     

     

    Twas' 11 days before 
    Christmas, around 9:38
    when 20 beautiful children stormed through heaven's 
    gate.

    Their smiles were contagious; their laughter filled the air,

    ......they could hardly believe all the beauty they saw there.

    They 
    were filled with such joy; they didn't know what to say,
    they remembered 
    nothing of what had happened earlier that day.

    "Where are we?" asked a 
    little girl, as quiet as a mouse.
    "This is heaven." declared a small boy, 
    "We’re spending Christmas at God's house."

    When what to their wondering 
    eyes did appear,
    but Jesus, their savior, the children gathered near.

    He looked at them and smiled, and they smiled just the same,
    then He 
    opened His arms and He called them by name.

    And in that moment was joy 
    that only heaven can bring
    those children all flew into the arms of their 
    King

    As they lingered in the warmth of His embrace,
    one small girl 
    turned and looked at Jesus' face.

    As if He could read all the questions 
    she had,
    He gently whispered to her, "I'll take care of mom and dad."

    Then He looked down on earth, the world far below,
    He saw all of the 
    hurt, the sorrow, and woe.

    Then He closed His eyes and He outstretched 
    His hand,
    "Let My power and presence re-enter this land!"

    "May this 
    country be delivered from the hands of fools",
    "I'm taking back my nation, 
    I'm taking back my schools!"

    Then He and the children stood up without a 
    sound,
    "Come now my children, let me show you around."

    Excitement 
    filled the space, some skipped and some ran,
    all displaying enthusiasm that 
    only a small child can.

    And I heard Him proclaim as He walked out of 
    sight,
    "In the midst of this darkness, I AM STILL THE LIGHT

  • Fake Video Of The Day

    Posted by Bear

    When I first saw this video this morning, I said WOW! It is a video of a golden eagle snapping up a toddler. Well..as it turns out it is a hoax put together by college students from Canada. If you watch close..you can see the eagles wings change in flight. Also, the eagle in flight is not native to North America. You have to love students having a laugh.
