RIDGE~PROTECT YOUR ANIMALS! A dog in the confines of a family's fenced yard should be safe. Unfortunately, that's not always the case.The dog's name was Ridge & he had a family. Days ago in New Brunswick,NJ the body of a tortured dog was found in a trash bag in an upscale neighborhood. Unscrupulous people stole him as he played in a locked & gated back yard, used as bait, starved, neglected, abused, burned & tossed out of a moving car window. Protect Your Pets! Pet Theft is on the rise!

Lex, a German shepherd whose trainer, 20-year-old Marine Corp. Dustin Lee, died in a mortar attack in Falluja in 2007. Lex, who had played with and slept alongside Corp. Lee throughout their service, was also injured in the attack; the dog at first refused to leave his side and had to be pulled away. Lee’s family lobbied extensively for the Marines to retire Lex before the customary age of 10, and Lex is now living with the Lees at their home in rural Mississippi.

During the chaos of the 9/11 attacks, where almost 3,000 people died, nearly 100 loyal search and rescue dogs and their brave owners scoured Ground Zero for survivors. Now, ten years on, just 12 of these heroic canines survive, and they have been commemorated in a touching series of portraits entitled Retrieved. The dogs worked tirelessly to search for anyone trapped alive in the rubble, along with countless emergency service workers and members of the public.

He had just saved her from a fire in her house, rescuing her by carrying her out of the house into her front yard, while he continued to fight the fire. She is pregnant. The firefighter was afraid of her at first, because he had never been around a Doberman before. When he finally got done putting the fire out, he sat down to catch his breath and rest. A photographer from the Charlotte, North Carolina newspaper, “The Observer,” noticed this red Doberman in the distance looking at the fire...

The photo is worth a thousand words...
