While we’re waiting to receive the good news that Mel Freer’s missing foster dog, Lady, has been found, I thought I’d post a few links to happy ending stories.
These aren’t dramatic stories about dogs who scale mountains and swim oceans to return to their families.
They are just small, every day triumphs in the lives of people you may know. If you missed them the first time, enjoy them now.
Dogs who exceed our expectations
The site, Kenzo the Hovawart, lends a touch of class to the pet blog world. With its detailed information about tracking work and commitment to ending breed discrimination, KtH is a serious-minded and thoughtful stop on my regular blog reading schedule.
But the story of reactive Viva having her first professional grooming touched my heart. If you’ve ever worried about what might happen if you weren’t around to manage your fearful dog’s reactions, read this happy ending story here.
Shiva (I couldn’t resist the rhyme with Viva)
The only blog about a tornado on a leash, Rescued Insanity, constantly surprises me. Sometimes it’s thoughtful and reflective. Other times it’s funny. And sometimes it’s both.
Drunken Master IV: Canine Fu tells the story of… Well, I’m not going to ruin it for you. You just have to read it yourself. Click here for another happy ending story of a reactive dog who defied expectations.
I think Will My Dog Hate Me is the only animal blog I follow written by someone with her doctorate in words. And it shows. The blog is witty and smart and I’ve never found a typo anywhere.
But I most love the posts where Edie’s love for her spunky pup Frankie shines through.
One of my favorites was when Edie told the story of taking Frankie on his first airplane ride. I felt like I was reading an adventure story and I couldn’t wait to discover how our hero would handle the challenges along the way.
You can read this happy ending story at Pet Travel, Triumphant! Frankie’s Flying Colors.
Some dogs meet our expectations and are just wonderful
Tales and Tails tells its stories with text and photos. It’s beautiful and I feel good reading it.
It’s the blog that reminds me of that pretty and popular girl you knew in school that you just couldn’t help liking even though you knew you should be terribly jealous.
Every photo on this blog is beautiful but one of Blueberry greeting her special fan stayed in my mind. You can find this short and lovely post here.
Sometimes we just need to read happy stories
I’m neglecting many other happy ending stories. And I’m sorry. But if you want to post a link in the comments to your favorite, please do.
It’s good to read about happy endings sometimes.
