He Cut Her From Her Mother’s Womb To Pad His Pockets & He’s Still In Business

*Images and content may be disturbing to some readers, discretion is advised

We will never understand the callous nature of people who harm animals. There is no excuse, even animals destined for slaughter should be treated humanely. In parts of Asia, even where it is illegal, dogs are still consumed for food. The slaughterhouses are run in back alleys to avoid detection. How they operate is simply barbaric.

This story is tragic. However, one animal rescuer proved that with love, anything is possible. A slaughterhouse ’employee’ separated a pregnant dog from the pack. Then he did the unthinkable. Without going into too much horrific detail, he killed the mother dog and cut her babies out. One was still alive. He took the surviving pup and threw her out into a puddle, and left her to die.

The animal rescuer heard about what happened and came as quickly as he could. He knew helping the premature puppy would be an uphill battle but he couldn’t just let her lie there and die. He picked her up and brought her to his home. He had a friend come over with puppy formula and bottles. He would have to feed her around the clock.

He named the baby “Blu” and loved to call her his little angel.

The rescuer didn’t mind waking up at all hours by her little cries. He kept her warm and fed her. The next day, he brought her to the veterinarian. The vet gave him bleak news. The puppy was so young and premature that it was unlikely she would survive. BUT… this was his opportunity to teach others about the cruelty of the dog meat trade. Blu could be an advocate.

Blu didn’t just become an advocate; she became an inspiration. The rescuer’s friends heard all about her and came over to meet her. They were amazed by her tenacity. They also were horrified to learn about her birth. This motivated them as well!

The rescuer’s friends, who never got involved before, were inspired. They joined him in the fight to close down the slaughterhouses.

To this day, towns in China still hide this dark secret. In smaller villages, the laws aren’t even enforced, if they have them in the first place. The dog meat trade continues. Little lives like Blu’s are lost every single day.

While, yes, it is easier if we turn a blind eye and remain blissfully unaware– however, that does nothing to help animals in need.

Raise your voices for dogs like Blu. Animal abuse will not be tolerated! The dog meat trade needs to end! And the callous butchers who continue to operate to pad their pockets MUST be held accountable.

Our part is to continue to share these stories and talk about what is still going on! Every animal matters, whether they are in this country or another part of the world!

Just as the butchers intended, Blu eventually lost her battle. She got very sick and the rescuer felt it was inhumane for her to suffer. She painlessly died in her rescuer’s arms (NOT PICTURED!)

Blue is now officially an angel. The rescuer continues to fight in her honor. Blu has reunited with her mother on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge.

Bless you, Baby Blu.

Story: Man’s About To Return Shelter Dog When He Reads Previous Owner’s Note

A man had finally settled into his new town, but something still felt missing from his life. He thought getting a companion in the form of a shelter dog might help. So he did just that. He went to the shelter where a black Lab named Reggie needed a home. But they didn’t hit it off right away.

The man gave it two weeks (the amount of time the shelter said it may take for the dog to adjust to his new home), but it just wasn’t working out. Maybe it was the fact he was also trying to adjust to a new situation. Maybe they were too much alike. But then the man started going through Reggie’s stuff, and that’s when he was reminded of a letter the previous owner had left with the dog. That’s what would end up changing their lives dramatically.

What an amazingly beautiful story. It’s all going to work out for Tank and his new owner. 🙂

Reverse Sneezing In Dogs – What to do…

Does this sound familiar? Your dog suddenly starts making loud snorting sounds—over and over again, in quick succession.

Do you start wondering, did they swallow something they shouldn’t have? Can they breathe?!

Chances are, you’re experiencing the infamous “reverse sneeze.”

Veterinarians often see dogs whose owners rushed them in for an emergency appointment after finding them standing with their elbows apart, head pulled back, and eyes bulging as they snort or gasp repeatedly.

Yet for the vast majority of these dogs, a vet visit was unnecessary.

Reverse sneezing looks and sounds scary the first time you encounter it. However, it’s a fairly common and harmless respiratory event for dogs.

Read on to learn how to identify reverse sneezing, what causes it, and how to tell the difference between a harmless reverse sneeze and something else.

What is reverse sneezing?

A reverse sneeze is pretty much what it sounds like: a sneeze that happens in reverse! The above video is a good example of what it looks and sounds like.

In a regular sneeze, air is rapidly pushed out through the nose. In a reverse sneeze, air is rapidly, and noisily, pulled in through the nose.

It occurs in spasms lasting anywhere from a few seconds up to a minute and sounds like snorting, snuffling, and even gagging. See the above video for an example.

Because of the sounds their dogs make while reverse sneezing, many people mistakenly think their dog is choking. However, a reverse sneeze is almost as normal and harmless as a regular sneeze.

What causes reverse sneezing?

VIA FLICKR/FLEUR-DESIGN

There’s no single cause for a reverse sneeze. Like regular sneezing, it’s often triggered by an irritation or inflammation in the nose, throat, or sinuses.

It often occurs when dogs wake up from a nap, or after eating, when their breathing pattern may have rapidly changed. It’s also caused by irritants in the airway—anything from dust to an inhaled hair!

Some dogs experience more frequent reverse sneezing in springtime when the air is full of pollen and other allergens.

Others reverse sneeze more in the winter, when sudden temperature changes between outdoors and indoors cause the nasal passages to contract.

Another common cause of reverse sneezing is pressure on the throat and neck. A too-tight collar, or straining against the leash, can irritate the throat and lead to a reverse sneeze. That’s just one more reason to consider a harness for your dog.

Finally, some dogs reverse sneeze after exercise, or when they’re overexcited. This is particularly common among brachycephalic, or short-nosed, breeds like pugs and bulldogs.

When they get worked up, they may inhale their elongated soft palates into the throat, triggering an episode of reverse sneezing.

How to end a reverse sneezing episode

VIA FLICKR/[email protected]

Reverse sneezing is super-common, and it won’t hurt your dog. However, some dogs become anxious during a reverse sneezing episode, and a lengthy episode may be uncomfortable.

You can help your dog recover from a reverse sneezing episode by remaining calm yourself. If you get anxious, your dog’s anxiety will increase, too. So, stay calm, and show your dog there’s nothing to panic about.

If your dog is experiencing a particularly long episode of reverse sneezing, you may be able to ease or end the episode by:

  • Gently massaging your dog’s throat
  • Briefly covering their nostrils, which will cause them to swallow and potentially stop sneezing
  • Depressing their tongue with your hand to help open airways
  • Some vets suggest gently blowing in your dog’s face

In the vast majority of cases, there’s no need to intervene. Reverse sneezing doesn’t last long, and your dog will be perfectly normal after it stops.

When you should go to the vet

As mentioned, reverse sneezing rarely requires veterinary treatment. As soon as the sneezing episode stops, the situation is resolved. However, if episodes increase in frequency or duration, you should call the vet just in case.

You should also seek treatment if your dog’s reverse sneezing is accompanied by other respiratory symptoms or if they have any unusual discharge from their nose.

Occasionally, chronic reverse sneezing can be a symptom of more serious issues. These include nasal mites, foreign objects in the airway, respiratory infections, and tracheal collapse.

If you’re concerned about the intensity of your dog’s reverse sneezing, take a video to show the vet. They’ll be able to determine potential causes.

Most dogs experience episodes of reverse sneezing at some point in their lives. For the vast majority of dogs, it’s a common, temporary, harmless reaction with no lasting aftereffects.

Of course, it still sounds unsettling to our human ears! But now that you know what reverse sneezing is, you’ll be less likely to make an unnecessary vet visit.
