ResQte Of The Week (Monday UK Edition)

THIS JUST IN from Paul P.: “Lots of floods in the UK right now and animals getting rescued like these:”

And Mike The Donkeh was rescued from a very bad situation in Kerry, Ireland.

From the Animal Heaven Animal Rescue FB page.



  1. The U.K., doing good for their animal friends in need!

  2. Alfie was not having that boat ride! Must not be a water dog.

  3. LunaChickFringe says:

    I want to smooch the poor donkey.

  4. Just for the record, I have always wanted a donkey. Now I specifically want Mike the Donkey. He is adorable!

  5. Mike looks extremely happy, as he should. Poor little critters, awash in all that flooding. Stay safe, all.

  6. Jenny Islander says:

    Mike looks like an anime character! Any donkey owners out there, what’s he really saying with that faaaaace?!

  7. Check that Facebook page for how much trouble that donkey was in

  8. Mike, I am so glad you are OK, sweetie!

  9. Da looks like one Tired / Happy A … well you know

  10. you can tell donkeh appreciates hoomin effort b/c he has his tongue out.

  11. I really wish that Mike would share the punchline with us…

    Poor puppy, he’s so scared.

  12. Feel kind of sorry for the donkey’s owners.

    Everyone’s raking them over the coals when they were the ones frantically calling for help when their gate, fences and donkey were washed away in the flood waters.

    And my donkey will be named Nestor, regardless of his ears.

  13. grytlappar says:

    I heart that donkey so much!!!! Wher can I visit heem???

  14. Oh my gosh, that donkey is perfection.

  15. januaryfarmer says:

    Smile, keep calm and carry on?

  16. The animals are equally important in these situations. They have NO way to save themselves. Thanks to all the wonderful rescurers. It doesn’t have to be a “house pet” to count.
    Love those two sweet, scared cuties.

  17. Jenny Islander says:

    OK, did some research and answered my own question.

    Smiley-face = Phwoo, something SMELLS.
    Anime eyes = rain in my eyes, don’t feel good, bleah

    So Mike is saying “My day has been HORRIBLE so far, thanks for asking, and everything is WEIRD and I wanna go HOOOOOOME, lady, please take me home?” Poor sweetie.
