I Died Today. By Duke Roberts.

And I ate a lot of hamburgers. We had a party. Note: This wasn’t my dog or situation; I thought it was worth sharing though. The photos and captions on this post have been reproduced as they originally appeared on photographer Robyn Arouty’s blog. http://www.robynarouty.com/

And I laughed.

This Story Will Reduce Any Grown Man To Tears: Man Saves A Homeless Dog From Near Death

May 6, 2014 | No Comments » | Topics: Animals |

A Pit Bull suffering from starvation and a severe injury was rescued from certain death by a man in Brazil. Wilson Coutinho Martins lives in Rio de Janeiro and has dedicated his life to rescuing and protecting animals from extreme conditions. For many animal lovers in Brazil he is a hero. For dogs like Davi, he is their savior.

The large dog with beautiful green eyes was rescued from the woods outside of Rio de Janeiro in September of 2012. He weighed just 28 pounds (13 kg) and had a huge, gaping wound in his rear. His bone was exposed and he could barely walk from the pain. If Wilson had not rescued him when he did, Davi would most certainly have died from infection and blood loss.

Wilson took Davi home and began tending to his wounds. During his recovery, Davi had to receive several blood transfusions and his wounds needed to be cleaned, treated with antibiotics and bandaged regularly. Within one month, his wounds were much better. A few months later, Davi’s wound had healed even more and he had gained back much needed weight. Although his journey back to health was slow, Davi has made a miraculous recovery. He is proof of how dedication and hard work and love can transform animals in even the most desperate of circumstances

The 10 Commandments For Dog Owners

April 29, 2014 | 2 Comments » | Topics: Animals, Life |

1. My life is likely to last ten to fifteen years. Any separation from you will be painful for me. Remember that before you acquire me.

2. Give me time to understand what you want from me.

3. Place your trust in me. Remember that before you acquire me.

4. Don’t be angry with me for long and don’t lock me up as punishment. You have your work, your friends, and your entertainment. I only have you.

5. Talk to me sometimes. Even if I don’t understand your words, I understand your voice when it is speaking to me. Be aware that however you treat me, I will never forget.

6. Remember before you hit me that I have teeth that can easily crush the bones in your hand, but I choose not to bite you.

7. Before you scold me for being uncooperative, obstinate, or lazy, ask yourself if something might be bothering me. Perhaps I don’t understand what you ask of me or perhaps I am not feeling well, not getting the right food, been out in the sun too long, or my heart is getting old and weak.

8. Take care of me when I get old, you too will grow old.

9. Go with me on difficult journeys. Never say " I can’t bear to watch," or "let it happen in my absence." Everything is easier if you are there.

10. Remember, no matter what, that I love you. Unconditionally.

Believe it or not, the metal community and cat fanciers have a lot of overlapping members. For her new book, Metal Cats, musician, jewelry designer, and photographer Alexandra Crockett enlisted some dark-looking dudes and their kitties for a series of awesome, often adorable portraits. The people involved are musicians including (and fans and promoters associated with) Isis, Xasthur, Morbid Angel, Napalm Death, and Black Goat, among many others.
