Tickle Paw Tuesday: Ode to the Big Black Dogs

This week’s installment of Tickle Paw Tuesday is a special ode to the big black dogs we’ve loved and lost. I know, many of you tune in to laugh, but today we hope you are tickled by the endearing relationships we humans are fortunate to have with our pets. Our companion animals never fail to be endless sources of love and joy. We love this sweet song by the wonderful Emmylou Harris, and hope you hum along, too.

We send this tune up for our dogs Frosty and Grandbury, two great “big black dogs” that we miss terribly.

Happy Tuesday, and love those good ol’ black dogs!

Tickle Paw Tuesday: Cat Finds Water Refreshing

Cats don’t always hate water, in fact, many cats enjoy playing in water, and like Winni, even enjoy bath time. Perhaps the unhappiness with water starts where most “fails” begin with cats, and that is when they are being forced to do something. The cat in this week’s installment of Tickle Paw Tuesday clearly isn’t being forced to repeatedly take a head dunk into the running faucet, and enjoys a drippy drink, too. A cat who loves water is a good thing, notoriously poor drinkers, many cats are always on the threshold of dehydration. All this cat needs is a faucet with a motion sensor and he can satisfy his thirst and save some water.

Seriously, this video just makes me laugh, and it makes me want a drink of water. I see a water or faucet commercial in his future.

Happy Tuesday!

Tickle Paw Tuesday: Unlikely Friendships

The rescued lion, bear, and tiger who are featured in this week’s Tickle Paw Tuesday video from Noah’s Ark Sanctuary in Georgia are a testament to unconditional love. The trio further illustrate the valuable lessons in companionship and patience that the human animal needs a little more help embracing. We’re so happy these three were given a second chance at life, love, and happiness. You can overcome a horrific start you’ve been given in life, but you can’t do it alone. The one who needs your helping hand may be just around the corner.

Happy Tuesday!
