“Animals have come to mean so much in our lives. We live in a fragmented and disconnected culture. Politics are ugly, religion is struggling, technology is stressful, and the economy is unfortunate. What’s one thing that we have in our lives that we can depend on? A dog or a cat loving us unconditionally, every day, very faithfully.”…Jon Katz

 

Dog is God spelled backwards.

From the Greensboro News Record.

“A 5-pound toy poodle named Pickle is being called a hero after jumping between its owner and a bear inside a North Carolina home Friday morning, according to TV station WLOS.

However, Pickle died as a result of his bravery, owner Tiffany Merrill said in a Facebook update. She told WNCN that the bear likely weighed 150 to 200 pounds and showed no fear of humans once it was inside her Black Mountain home.

“There was nothing I could do,” Merrill told WLOS. “I wanted to go out there and jump on the back of the bear and save my dog.”

The ordeal began just before 6 a.m. Friday, when she opened a door to let the dog out, Merrill wrote on Facebook.

“A bear come … in my house, my dog jumped in front of me to save my life,” she said in a series of posts. “The bear was right in my face…It jumped (on) my couch to try and get me.”

Merrill said she immediately began screaming for her children to close their doors, so the bear could not get into their rooms. “I thought I was going to die,” she said on Facebook.

Pickle saved her by first barking to distract the bear and then chasing it out of the house, she told WNCN.

However, once outside, the dog proved no match for the bear, she said. She says her 19-year-old son got the dog away from the bear, but it was too late.

Merrill rushed Pickle to an animal hospital for surgery, but the dog was too badly wounded, she said on Facebook. “My hero died saving me from a bear,” she wrote. “We lost a big part of our family.””

    ……….and that is why I still miss my little Brigett so badly. I was forced to have the little dog who I love dearly euthanized because her cancer had caused her a lot of pain. Most people have no idea the level of grief that a pet owner goes through when the animal passes. It is the same as that which you suffer when you lose a flesh and blood member of your family. Brigett was euthanized in August of 2016. I still feel it. It was the hardest thing I have ever had to do in my life…….and certainly one of the most painful.

    ………..the story about little Pickle was extremely saddening. This little dog went after the bear in an attempt to drive it away. Here is a 5# dog up against probably a black bear, which can be extremely aggressive. They range throughout NC, and when they invade homes are usually after food. There was once a lifetime friend of mine who moved to Ashville area to be with his ailing brother. Not long after he moved there a black bear attempted to enter the mobile home which my friend was living in with his brother. Fortunately for both the owner had recently had a security type of steel door installed, along with an exterior steel barred security type of protection. He done this because just a few months prior a black bear had tried to invade another mobile home nearby which also was equipped with a steel security entrance door. The owner of that mobile home also kept a 12 gage semi auto shotgun close at hand and loaded with Remington Express (high brass) 00 buckshot just in case a bear was successful in entering the mobile home. When I learned about what had happened there I made a suggestion that instead of a shotgun with 00 buckshot they should be looking for a 30-06 caliber rifle.instead as a stand by. I say this because the matt of fur on any bear is almost like a bullet proof vest. Shotgun pellets would not penetrate the frontal fur matt of a bear. A 30-06 high power rifle will penetrate the matted fur. In actuality I personally would probably keep a Weatherby 300 Magnum handy just for the extra ounce of protection the magnum load offers. One correctly placed round from a Weatherby 300 will kill a 900 lb Brown bear in it’s tracks. 260 grain slug moving at over 3000 FPS.

  5. AND TODAY…….
    ………..a sneaking , slimy little POS at the NYT has tried to make the public believe that the TRUMP WHITE HOUSE is in complete disarray. This is total BULL$HIT. The SICK LITTLE POS MORON WHO WROTE THIS should be found and given a very extended SLAMMER VACATION in the GENERAL CROWD at a really nasty penitentiary.
    People who write this sort of BULL$HIT are NOT the JUDGE AND JURY of anybody, and are in reality PAID HALF WITS. Those who publish, and print such stories are worse than half wits…….THEY EQUATE WITH criminals.

  6. REAL SLIMES………
    ……..AT NEW YORK TIMES !!!!!

  7. AND NOW………..
    …………PEOPLE LIKE SENATOR COONS THINK THEY ARE THE POTUS. President Trump has NEVER acted outside of the RIGHTS of a sitting POTUS………..sadly our TWISTED, LIBERAL LOONEY LEFT think they can IMPEACH HIM. IN REALITY SUCH AN ATTEMPT WILL END UP IN THE US SUPREME COURT WHERE THE PERPETRATORS WILL LOSE BIG TIME. THERE MUST BE PROVEABLE CRIMINAL ACTS BY A SITTING POTUS TO IMPEACH HIM. THE SICK TWISTED LIBERALS WILL LEARN THIS THE HARD WAY AFTER THE FACT, AS THEY ARE EACH CONVICTED OF ATTEMPTING TO OVERTHROW A SITTING DULY ELECTED POTUS. IN ADDITION A HELLUVA LOT OF THEM WILL FIND THEMSELVES VOTED OUT OF OFFICE. AT SOME POINT DOWN THE ROAD THE DOJ IS GOING TO BE FORCED TO CRACK DOWN ON SUCH FOLKS, BY DISHING OUT SOME REALLY SERIOUS PRISON TIME FOR CONVICTED POLITICAL RADICALS. WHO THINK THEY ARE “SOOOOOOO SUPERRRRRRRIOR” TO EVERYONE ELSE AND ATTEMPT TO OVERTHROW A SITTING POTUS.REAL BASTARDS

  8. Send a full armored military unit into the nytimes offices with high powered weapons in the morning. Breaking down doors.

    That’s what they did to Paul Manafort and the left thought it was cool.

    I would give a lot to see that happen.

  9. AND TODAY……….
    ………….MORE PAID SNOTNOSES SCREAMING EXPLETIVES WERE REMOVED FROM THE KAVANAUGH HEARINGS. MOST WERE CHILDISH FEMALES. THERE WAS ONE BLACK MAN. ONE THING IS CERTAIN……….THERE IS A LOT OF STING A$$ED PUNKS WHO WILL DO ANYTHING FOR A COUPLE OF LIBERAL BUCKS.

  10. fhl………..
    …………unfortunately NYT is owned by extreme left people, and as such they will print ANYTHING which they think will damage the POTUS. One day their printing of blatant lies will backfire on them to such an extent that it will put them out of business permanently. I pray that this is sooner rather than later.

  11. Schiff is hitting the fan! Video starts at 1:30 after ad.

    Rosenstein is apparently under investigation! The end is near as the traitors bite the dust.

    Posted wrong video on last effort.

  13. Warning: I gave a few bucks to Geoff Diehl’s campaign in the MA primary. He won :). He will be taking on Liawatha Warren in November.

    Unfortunately, I’m now on a mailing list and am being spammed by every Repub in the country who’s running for something.

    Please be careful if/when you donate!

  14. SueK………
    ………….and that is the primary reason why I don’t give any of them a damn penny. They are the ones who want to run for office so let them come up with their own sources of finances. This would show backbone, and ability on the part of the candidate……which might end with me voting for that candidate. A candidate who promises everything and delivers nothing is somebody who should not hold the office to begin with office.

  15. AND THIS MORNING……..
    ………..as I watch the hearings today I keep seeing Mzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz Feinstein run her mouth at every chance she gets…..total moron. Obviously her mind is so sick, and twisted she keeps repeating the same thing over and over……….REAL NITWIT. Maybe she should take up her admitted choice of social behavior full time and stop pretending to be a government official.

  16. AND TODAY……….
    …………more PAID SNOTNOSES screaming their expletives are led out of the hearings. ……..SURPRISED TO SEE THAT THE SECURITY PEOPLE WERE NOT WEARING GAS MASKS. LOTS OF $HIT ODOR COMING FROM THE UNWASHED A$$ES OF THE MORONIC, NOSE PICKING, PROTESTERS.!!!!
