These Therapy Dogs Comfort Witnesses While They Testify In Court

Having to go up on the witness stand in a courthouse can be a frightening and intimidating time for anyone. For an adult or child that has experienced a traumatic event, it can be even worse. To lessen the anxieties and tensions in the courtroom, the foundation Courthouse Dogs was created by Ellen O’Neill Stephens and Celeste Walsen.

They knew from the get-go it is the perfect solution to helping children and adults feel better and more confident when they have to testify in court. Ellen and Celeste make a strong team for the cause, Ellen is a retired prosecutor and Celeste is a veterinarian.

O’Neill explained to Upworthy, “When a person is reliving a traumatic event, they experience physiological reactions similar to what they had when the event was taking place. This adversarial system [of testifying in front of your attacker] is brutal. A lot of people come out damaged by it.”

This is especially true for children who are often too traumatized to speak of their abuse, especially in front of their attacker. Many kids shut down and don’t want to talk, especially if their parents are not allowed in the interview with them. When you introduce a dog to the situation everything changes, the child begins to pet the dog, calm down and is much more likely to open up.

At an IKEA location in Cologne, Germany they are testing a new idea, the “dog parking lot,” which is a safe area where dogs can hang out while their owners are shopping in the store.

Each dog has its own space, with fake grass, water and a secure place to tie a leash

While there have not been any pet facilities to open in other areas, the company is planning to hopefully implement this idea worldwide.

Awesome Dog Owner Gives Terminally Ill Companion A Road Trip Of A Lifetime

Thomas Neil Rodriguez adopted a mixed-breed puppy from an animal shelter in 1999. Fifteen years later, the loving dog owner learned his beloved pet Poh had several terminal health problems and would not live much longer. So Rodriguez decided to give his loyal pal the trip of a lifetime.

Poh, Rodriguez, and his fiancee took to the road for seven weeks, visiting 35 cities and traveling over 12,000 miles. They set off from their home in New York City for California so the water-loving dog could swim in the Pacific Ocean. And along the way, Poh got to see dozens of famous landmarks in Texas, Oregon, Arizona, and more.

Although Rodriguez was worried Poh wouldn’t make it through the first two weeks, the pup got to enjoy every bit of the adventure and document every stop on his own Instagram account.

Poh is back on the East Coast now, but still going on adventures. During Memorial Day weekend, the pup got to see Coney Island for the first time. Says Rodriguez, “I am super blessed that I have actually gotten to do this … People think I take care of Poh, but Poh takes care of me.”

This Photo Of Two Dogs Hugging Saved Them From Certain Death

dogs hugging saved

Exactly 2 hours and 6 minutes – that’s how long it took an amazing community of animals lovers to come together to save the lives of two canine friends.

Angels Among Us Pet Rescue posted a photo of Kala and Keira appearing to hug. The touching photo was accompanied by a heart-wrenching message from the perspective of Kala.

“I’m Kala. This is Keira. We’re so scared in here. The people working in the shelters see how scared we are but just told each other that today is our deadline. We have to have someone rescue us or we’ll be ‘next.’ Keira is black and not a ‘real boxer,’ just a mix. She’s so brave and tells me it will be okay no matter what happens. She tells me to be brave too but I don’t know if I can be. Can you see our faces. Keira knows what will happen. You can see it in her eyes. She’s putting on a brave face for sure but I can feel her heart beating fast while I’m clinging to her. If no one saves us, someone will take her away from me. I’ll see her as she goes down the hallway. She won’t come back and I’ll cry. They’ll come for me next and I won’t be as brave. We’ve comforted each other while we were here. She gave me hope when I had none. Now it’s over. Unless…”

The post received over 700,000 likes and over 10,000 shares on Facebook. A few hours later, Angels Among Us posted this awesome update:

“THEY ARE SAFE!!! There are no words to tell you how happy we are that these two best friends are safe and together! Thank you for your shares, donations and offers! Just look at these two!!! This is why we rescue.”

This Husky Was Raised By Cats And Acts Like A Cat

July 22, 2015 | No Comments » | Topics: Animals, Dogs, Uplifting |

Redditor Dong_of_justice “got a bit famous” after he shared some pics of his husky named Tally on Reddit. It is not an ordinary husky, the dog was “raised with cats, and thought she was.. cat herself. “

“She’d piss on our floors if we ever did something wrong as well. She also had a knack for finding the best worst places to do it (i. e. carpets, rugs, etc.). She also sat like a cat, with her arms and legs tucked under herself.” 

Actually, Tally is not completely a husky. According to her owner, “she’s husky/malamute/little bit of something else. She actually looks and behaves more like a malamute (which are also a bit cat-like), but most people don’t know what they are so I go with “husky”.

Unfortunately,the redditor doesn’t provide any cat pictures in his album. ”She was raised with cats by her previous owners, and they only gave me puppy pictures without the cats. I can’t prove she was raised with them or that she truly thinks she’s a cat,” explains the dog’s owner.
