My one true love. Animals are some of the best friends a person can have. Abused and neglected animals are some of the unlucky creatures of this world who do not deserve this fate. Please be aware of abused and neglected animals and make these holidays bright by adopting, donating food to shelters, or reporting any suspected abuse. Thank you! Keep on loving your babies!
Originating from England, the Lancashire Heeler is apart of the herding group. They are most commonly black and tan, but may appear in liver and tan as well. It is speculated that this breed came about when a Welsh Corgi was introduced to a Manchester Terrier, but others suggest a Corgi and a Dachshund. Unlike the Corgi, these hearty pups can live up to 15 years old, or more, and they are half the size. If you’re interested in owning one of these handsome dogs, don’t let their short stubby appearance fool you; they will thrive in agility, flyball, and herding competitions.
This reminds me of my baby Ringo.
Cutest Call To Action Ever of the Day: On October 5, the container ship MV Rena ran aground on Astrolabe Reef, resulting in an oil spill that is already being regarded as the worst environmental disaster in New Zealand’s history.
Clean up efforts are underway, but the danger to local wildlife remains high. A raft of Little Blue Penguins has already been negatively impacted by the spill.
