A Nativity Scene was erected in a church yard. During the night the folks came across this scene. An abandoned dog was looking for a comfortable, protected place to sleep. He chose baby Jesus as his comfort. No one had the heart to send him away so he was there all night. We should all have the good sense of this dog and curl up on Jesus' lap from time to time. Not to mention that the dog breed is a Shepherd ~ The Lord is my Shepherd <3

This is my favorite photo in the world -- me and Linus, born to a dairy cow and ordered to be killed when the farmer saw he was a male (and thus useless in the dairy industry). A compassionate individual intervened, and he was brought to a sanctuary. I met him when he was a few days old and 60 pounds, and he would always try to sit on my lap. Today, 7 years young and 1 500 pounds, he still tries to sit on my lap. ~Colleen Patrick-Goudreau

For the third time in under a year, a loving Dachshund named Duchess has taken in a litter of abandoned kittens.

sad & happy at the same time.

a tiger mother lost her cubs from premature labor. shortly after, she became depressed, her health declined, and she was diagnosed with depression. so they wrapped up piglets in tiger cloth and gave them to the tiger. the tiger now loves these pigs and treats them like her own. aw!
