Joanie Loves Chachi: A Best Friends Story (GALLERY)

(DOGS/ANIMAL FRIENDS/PICTURES OF ANIMALS) Is there any better love story than a beautiful friendship between two unlikely companions? A group of police officers in Savannah, Georgia found a stray pit bull wandering the streets with a Chihuahua in her mouth. The little dog had an extremely infected eye, so occasionally the pit bull would put her friend down to lick her wounded eye clean. Shortly after finding these two adorable friends wandering the streets alone, the officers took them to the Savannah Chatham Metropolitan Animal Control Shelter (SCMAC), where the two were separated for a few days while the Chihuahua underwent emergency eye surgery. After their reunion, there was no denying that these two are best friends and deserve to spend the rest of their happy lives together. In fact, the shelter even named these pups “Joanie & Chachi” due to their close bond. According to the Joanie loves Chachi Facebook page, the shelter is still looking for their perfect forever home. Check out the gallery below to see exactly how much Joanie loves Chachi. — Global Animal

Photographer Shows Compawssion For The Underdog

(ANIMAL ACTIVISM/RESCUE DOGS) According to the ASPCA, approximately 5 to 7 million pets enter animal shelters nationwide every year, and approximately 3 to 4 million are euthanized—that’s one every six and a half seconds. In addition, millions more are abandoned, only to suffer from illness or injury before their untimely death. However, many are fighting to change these statistics. One is photographer Frank Bruynbroek, who dedicated 15 years of his life into the creation of Compawssion: Portraits of Rescued Dogs. The touching collection of black and white, film portraits of rescued dogs shows audiences what it means to be a dog who has been abandoned and then rescued. — Global Animal

I had it years ago and was not impressed. I thought it was bland and mushy. Tofu lovers kept telling me I didn’t give it a fair chance, and that I just needed to find the right recipe. It turns out they were right. — Global Animal
