Great story from Nicole D. in The Great White North! “I was bicycling in the country when I spotted a little black ball huddled against a guard-rail post on the side of a busy road. I checked in with local wildlife experts who told me it was probably orphaned and assured me they’d take it if I could capture it and deliver it to them –200 kilometers away! With the help of an old pair of leather gloves, a plastic bin and family members who each drove a part of the way, we relayed the little critter to the Toronto Wildlife Centre where they will take care of it until it is old enough to be released back to the wild.”
Let’s head up to The Great White North for this story- it seems BUNS are stowing away in vacationers cars! So BUNS are on the…Lamb?
Around 50 of these little guys hit Toronto’s Cherry Beach on Sunday for the third annual Corgi Beach Party.
Are you and your Corgi in the Toronto area? There’s an FB group for this bunch.

Remember Kaly? The little ResQte puppeh stuck in India who needs to get to Canada? We’ve got an update for you from Jade L.
“I have updates on Kaly’s big adventure and I need your help again!
Kaly was supposed to arrive in Canada in the last week of May but just as she was getting ready for her big adventure to Canada, Goa put an embargo on pet travel! This means Kaly and all her friends at Dr. Marylin’s office are stuck there until it is lifted. She is with 9 other dogs all waiting to get to their homes. Here she is just two days ago.
The embargo should be lifted July 15 and the vet is getting Kaly a new crate so she can come as soon as it is lifted but I’ve been paying $15 a day since April out of my travel budget for her to be well taken care of there in Goa. Here she is back in April:
Now more than ever I need to make my $4000 goal on GoFundMe. I am $900 short and this little bit will make it so I can pay for her flight and finally be reunited with my baby.
You’ve already helped so much but if you could re-post my story it would mean the world to me!”
If you happen to find yourself, say, in St. John’s, Newfoundland (it could happen!) and are looking for some nightlife, you’ll find it here. At Junco’s Pub, the seediest bar in St. John’s.* This fly-by-night joint is open 24/7. (FYI: you have to be a bird to get in.) When it has customers, here’s how it looks:

Cute photos of kittehs are terrific, but if you can get ’em LIVE LIVE LIVE from The Great White North, well, that takes up it a notch! (Make sure you crank the audio.)
Jaclyn M. says “TinyKittens is a rescue in British Columbia who run webcams showing the animals they are fostering. Through various streams, you can watch their cats live, and also view archived recordings of events such as births and vet checkups. I’ve been leaving Eve’s livestream on my computer while I’m at work, and hearing the sounds of purrs and kitten slurping makes the day much more pleasant!”
“After watching the live stream all day, we had to break for food; when we returned, we found our cat Joker trying to join the cuddlepuddle on the screen. Hearts broke with the sweetness. Hope you enjoy as much as we did!” -Caity, James, and Joker- Washington DC.

Let’s pick up the story from Lauren K.: “Meet Tybalt (a.k.a. Tibbs.) This beautiful, healthy 3 year old boy recently came into our lives through a friend who adopted him from a Toronto shelter. Unfortunately, due to severe asthma issues, she was unable to keep him. My husband and I took him because we could not bare to see him go back to a shelter. Now, after having him with us for a few weeks, I have developed allergy issues of my own (though my husband is fine.)”
“It’s with a heavy heart that we have decided to actively look for a better permanent situation for Tibbs. He is such a loving, easygoing, playful cat….who has a weird and hilarious obsession with his towel. He deserves to be with people who can provide plenty of head scratches, treats and attention. Perhaps there are a few Toronto area C.O. fans out there looking for that purrfect addition to their family?”

“I thought I would send you a picture of puppy Kaly. I met her when she was 3 weeks old in India. I had to come back to Canada but I am raising money to try and save her,” writes Jade L.
“When I first met Kaly, she was sleeping at the bottom of a heap of 3 week old strays on the beach. She was much smaller than the other pups and very sick with an infection that left her blind in one eye.”
“I carried her to Animal Rescue nearby and they gave me antibiotics and eye drops which I gave her every day. Two days later her swollen eye had gone down to half the size, 4 days later she was standing on her wobbly legs and taking her first steps, and 6 days later she was healthy and playful. In this time I completely fell in love with her.”
“After some early research, I found out that puppies need to be 4 months old to fly and when I left Kaly she was only 6 weeks. I had to leave India but I am determined to bring Kaly to Canada so I can look after her.”
“Monsoon season is in May and it’s very hard on the dogs. Both animal rescue and a vet in Mumbai have agreed enthusiastically to help me bring Kaly home but I need your help!”
“We’ve raised $1090 of our $4000 goal. It’s for a pet travel company I have hired to send her, and vet bills in India to give her vaccinations and care for her until she comes!”
“Thanks so much for taking the time to gaze into her tiny face.” [*Note: New FB page here. -Ed.]
