Dog Risks Life to Save Companion

Another amazing story of heroism to follow-up my post about Jake. Only this time, the hero is a dog. A stray risked his life by diving into the middle of a crowded highway in Chile to rescue another dog who had been hit by a car. Here's the Early Show report.

Help Anaki and Win

Announcing Animal Rescue Online's first contest! The winner will receive an ASPCA "Sports Themed Squeak-rope Toy" of their choice (for their own furry friend). The aim of this contest is to promote Anaki, a five-year-old boxer mix located in Conneticut Humane Society's Waterford branch. Anaki is deaf, but responds to hand signals and has been described by the shelter as "a very sweet girl [...] the most loyal and tender-hearted companion" who is "housebroken and well mannered. She enjoys the company of adults." Anaki needs to be the only pet in her adoptive home.

To enter the contest, write an article about Anaki (with a link to her Petfinder page included) and put it on your website, then submit a link to it via the comments section of this post. All entries must be received by January 20th, 2009 at 9:00 AM Pacific Standard Time. The post doesn't have to be long at all (minimum fifty words). The winner will be selected at random by Designate, an online generator.
