Hope You Had a Happy, Heavenly, 4th Birthday, Gary.

This is the incredible, Gary the capybara, who lived large and in charge with his devoted hoomins and many furry friends in Texas.

2010_05_02_001_sCaplinGPHoedown
His hoomins made a big deal over big ol’ Gary but they didn’t make a big deal about his big underlying health issues, quietly tending to his medical needs and taking him to specialists many miles away to care for him. And Gary was doing really well, and lived longer than they thought he might, nearly almost making it to his 4th birthday, yesterday, March 10.

Gary became their heart and soul and now, he lives on in their heart and soul, and in ours too.

Full memorial to Gary on Capybara Madness. Hold on to your heart, it is quite a story.

Turn on the Bubbles, Please?

OK, suuure! (sprinkles lavender all around, runs off to light a few candles, hire a violinist, make snausage martinis, rawhide blinis…)

It May Be Winter But Get Ready To Melt

Hollywood Hounds is not only a pet boutique and spa; they have been doing pet adoptions and rescues since 2007. Three months ago they took in an abandoned pair like no other whose forever home is now none other than Hollywood Hounds. Jacqueline Borum is captivating and inspiring as she tells the story.
Fave Quotes:

“They were found together. They are pretty much inseparable. The Dachshund absolutely loves this kitten, which has some health issues obviously.”

“We’ve had bonds between animals. I don’t know we’ve ever seen anything like this. It’s pretty special.”

“Every time Idgie goes out she gets a smooch. Someone’s constantly babying Ruth.”

“They pretty much share everything.”

“We’re making up for lost time for anything that they may have lacked.” “Now they’ve got about 14 Mommies here.”

Thanks to all the peeps who sent this in! Including, “I dare you to watch these two and not get teary.” -Phred’s Mom. And, “I’m sure you’ve gotten this one a bunch by now. . . but just in case. OMG THOSE LEGS!” -Nick D. More on this story from Huffington Post.

The Three Little Pigs of Chiang Mai, Thailand

Oink if you love happy, fairy tale endings.

Mindy P., from Save Elephant Foundation, wrote to tell us, “Just before Christmas, a mother pig went into labor and sadly passed away with a number of stillborn piglets. The foundation I work with rescued the only survivors… three little pigs.”

“The road ahead for these little ones is a tough one, but we’re doing all that we can.

If fans want to follow along on their journey, we would love to see them as fans on Facebook. Thanks so much.” -Mindy.

OMG, Put Up Your Cute Shields Now, Peeps.

OK. Readies?

This baby orangutan is Pongo. Pongo is looking at you with his beeg Pongo eyes!

This is Pongo looking lovingly at his mother, with his beeg Pongo smile!

11939186943_200b454f9d_z
Pongo, and his mother, Blaze, have such a story. (keep those shields up!)

11939747126_ddf2562d74_z
Due to some complications at birth, it took Pongo and his Mom many months to recover and become fully reunited.
And now they are inseparabuls.

With help from many caretakers at Zoo Atlanta working tirelessly around the clock to nurture mother and child back to health and to bond their relationship, this story has a successful, happy ending for all.

Oh and one last thing, Sun., Jan. 12, was Pongo’s first birthday.
Happy Birthday, Pongo!

We’re Here for You, Chloe

This is such a sweet photo portrait in memory of your anerable hammy, Biddy. Such a cute, friendly fella. Even if it gets us all teared up, CO is a place for sharing special moments and many others will be there for you.

“Biddy was our beloved Djungarian. Sadly, he developed an untreatable infection and had to be put down today. We snapped this pic on an iPad mini when Biddy was just a pup and feel it’s a fitting tribute to our little buddy!  We love you, Biddy!” – Chloe D.
