Recently in rural Italy, a stray German Shepherd was taken in by a woman named Maria. The woman named him Ciccio and the bond they formed over the next couple of years was strong, the dog even followed her to church services.
Christmas is a time to focus on the good. A time to help those in need...that includes our four-legged friends. A group called 'Hope for Paws' made a recent rescue of a homeless dog that had been surviving for months at a trash pile.
The cute dog in this video cannot ride in the vehicle unless he is holding hands (or paw to hands) with the driver. Perhaps the dog has seen what a terrible driver the owner is and just needs to maintain that contact for security. Whatever the reason, it is adorable to watch.
Cats, dogs, along with all types of pets are welcome today on the grounds of St. Cyprian's Episcopal Church for the annual Blessing of the Animals event. This celebration usually falls near the Feast Day of St. Francis of Assisi.
