The Rescue Story You Would Not Watch

The rescue story you would not watch is the one that will not have a shocking thumbnail that will make you go “wow”. It will not have a dramatic title, in capital letters and exclamation marks. It will not contain shocking words like “mange”, “neglect” and “starved”.

Rescuing An Orphaned Baby Bird – Guess Who Couldn’t Care Less

Rescuing was always about private initiative I guess. Some of us have a soft spot for cats, dogs, baby birds, turtles..whatever. So, you rescue one, then another, then you meet some people who feel the same, make an organization, rescue some more, get organized and then the state comes along and says: “I couldn’t care less about baby birds, but since you do, here’s some money. You do the hard work and I act cool and generous”.

Interstellar Love – Laura, Me And Other Infinite “Mes”

Yesterday we were watching Interstellar. For someone like me, who just read A Brief History of Time years ago and decided that all this was too much knowledge to fit into a tiny brain, Interstellar is comprehensible up to a point. After a while, I completely lose it.

Dead End Conversations With Pedigree Dog Owners

Dead end: a position, situation, or course of action that leads to nothing further. The question is, why do I keep engaging myself to these kinds of conversations.

Donkeys In Greece Have A Place To Prove Their Awesomeness

Donkeys are awesome, and what’s awesome about them is that they don’t brag about their awesomeness. They are just there, modest, adorable and serene, waiting for you to get to know them better- and once you do, you will fall in love, like I did.

Meet The Woman Who Dedicates Her Life To Rescuing Strays

Meet Linda, the woman I have been wanting to “introduce” to the world for months. No video or post could even do her any justice, but this is the least I could do for her. Linda is originally from South Africa. She came to Greece in 2001 for three months, and has been living here since.

Why I Did Not Keep The Dog That “Loved Me”

Why didn’t you keep him? He loved you … I get this question almost every time I post a video about a rescue or foster dog (ah! especially a foster dog) that was adopted. Today, I even woke up to find a comment in Christie’s video saying “she trusted you and you let her down!” WTF???
