Terminally ill dog made honorary police K-9

Westlake Legal Group Eddie-Spaghetti Terminally ill dog made honorary police K-9 Michael Hollan fox-news/us/us-regions/northeast/pennsylvania fox-news/lifestyle/pets fox news fnc/lifestyle fnc article 3fc86ea5-8fa7-5dd3-aec3-57c6eba9387f

That’s Officer Eddie Spaghetti to you.

A terminally ill dog in Washington state went from being homeless to an honorary police dog. After being sworn in, the local police department documented the animal’s one day on the force.

The dog, named Eddie, was found living on the street by Benton County Canine Control, KAPP-TV reports. It’s believed that he was abandoned before Thanksgiving. And according to a medical check, Eddie has an inoperable tumor causing him to go blind in one eye.

Eddie, who’s nicknamed Eddie Spaghetti, was reportedly diagnosed with six months to a year to live. He’s being cared for by Kristi Kesler, his current foster mom. She decided to come up with a bucket list for Eddie to help make his last few months special.

One of the items on the list was to become a K-9 officer for the local authorities, which the Pasco Police Department happily obliged. They shared photos of Eddie’s day as a cop on their Facebook page.

“We have finished our amazing day with K9 Eddie,” wrote the Pasco Police, “and we are overwhelmed with the amount of support the community has shown him. Eddie was welcomed everywhere he went and shown nothing but love and affection all day.”

The post continued by giving a “huge shout out to Mikey’s Chance Canine Rescue for allowing us to chauffeur Eddie around town. We also want to thank the businesses and people that helped make this possible. None of this would have been possible without you.”

The post concluded with the department wishing “Eddie all the best with his bucket list and future endeavors. It was an honor working with you today, Eddie! We hope you had as much fun as we did.”

North Carolina animal rescue posts brutally honest cat adoption ad: ‘She’s just a jerk’

Westlake Legal Group Worlds-worst-cat North Carolina animal rescue posts brutally honest cat adoption ad: 'She's just a jerk' Michael Hollan fox-news/us/us-regions/southeast/north-carolina fox-news/lifestyle/pets fox news fnc/lifestyle fnc e897807b-343c-58bd-b251-bd1ea2ac91cd article

This seems … catty.

A truly unique animal adoption notice recently appeared on Facebook. While most posts like this try to be positive and cheerful, this particular one can only be described as brutally honest.

The Mitchell County Animal Rescue in North Carolina introduced social media to Perdita, who can apparently only be described as a “jerk.” That’s not a description coming from an upset user, that’s the official statement coming from the animal shelter.

According to the post, the rescue thought Perdita “was sick, turns out she’s just a jerk.”

Along with photos of the cat, the post states, “Meet Perdita, not for the faint of heart. LIKES: staring into your soul until you feel as if you may never be cheerful again; the song Cat Scratch Fever, the movie ‘Pet Cemetery’ (Church is her hero), jump scares (her specialty), lurking in dark corners, being queen of her domicile, fooling shelter staff into thinking she’s sick (vet agrees… she’s just a jerk).”

CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP FOR OUR LIFESTYLE NEWSLETTER

That impressive list of likes is followed by Perdita’s dislikes, which reportedly include, “the color pink, kittens (yuk they are so chipper), dogs, children, the Dixie Chicks, Disney movies, Christmas and last but NOT least…HUGS. She’s single and ready to be socially awkward with a socially awkward human who understands personal space.”

The Mitchell County Animal Rescue confirmed to Fox News that while the post has received plenty of attention, they haven’t gotten any offers to adopt the cat yet.

The post concludes by stating that Perdita is a free adoption, which seems fair, as no one should have to pay to live a jerk.

According to the post, she’s been identified as a jerk by a veterinarian, which seems pretty official.

Vet accidentally euthanized cat instead of giving it rabies vaccine, woman claims

A distraught cat owner is heartbroken after an alleged mistake at the vet’s office resulted in the pet’s death.

According to Houston-native Michelle Olson, the vet accidentally gave her cat euthanasia medicine instead of the rabies vaccine that was supposed to be administered. Despite realizing the mistake before the animal died, the veterinarian’s office could not save its life.

Olson says that she and her husband had picked up their cat, Sophie, and were on their way home when they received a call from the vet, ABC 13 reports. “It was the doctor herself calling saying, ‘Please get Sophie back here immediately, we gave her euthanasia instead of a rabies vaccine,’” she explained to the outlet.

“Every time I close my eyes, I see that look on her face and I just can’t get it out of my head,” Olsen told the outlet.

While Olsen and her husband were able to get the cat back to the vet, it was reportedly too late to reverse the effects.

“I immediately took her out of her cat carrier and I held her, talked to her, because I knew that was going to be the last thing she would remember,” Olson explained. “I knew she wasn’t going to come back at that point. I just knew it. She pretty much was dying in my arms.”

According to ABC 13, the animal hospital responsible for the incident would not comment on the situation at the advice of legal counsel.

“They’re very sorry, that’s all they can say really,” Olson said. “It was an accident, I get that, but it was an accident that should’ve never happened.”

Woman claims dog was crushed to death during PetSmart grooming appointment: ‘She wasn’t just a pet’

A heartbroken Nevada woman claims her dog mysteriously died during a routine grooming appointment at PetSmart, believing that her pup was crushed to death under a grooming table.

A few days after Christmas, Vikki Seifert took her 2-year-old bulldog, Minni, to the pet-supply shop’s location at North 5th Street and 215 Beltway in Las Vegas, Fox 5 KVVU-TV reports.

But just 13 minutes after she dropped off Minni for a bath and nail trim at 6:30 p.m., Seifert says that the dog was dead.

The woman explained that her bulldog’s PetSmart appointments were usually quick, so she walked around the store in the meantime — but immediately knew something was wrong when she saw staffers run to the grooming area.

“I ran in there. When I went in, she was crushed under a grooming table,” Seifert told KVVU. “They said that they had listened for her heartbeat and she was gone.”

Demanding answers, Seifert claims that the PetSmart employees could not provide a clear explanation for the accident.

According to the North Las Vegas woman, the grooming table was unplugged — a possible reason why it couldn’t be raised off the animal.

“I don’t believe it was the weight of the table,” she alleged. “It was the fact that it was electric and it had crushed her to the point that the table was closed all the way on her. And then with it being unplugged, there was no way to raise it.”

“A tragic accident occurred in our grooming salon, which led to the heartbreaking loss of Minni,” a rep for PetSmart said. (Vikki Seifert/KVVU)

When reached for comment, a PetSmart spokesperson described the incident as a “tragic accident” and confirmed that an investigation has since been launched.

“A tragic accident occurred in our grooming salon, which led to the heartbreaking loss of Minni. There’s nothing more important than the safety of the pets in our care, and we immediately launched a comprehensive investigation into how this type of unprecedented event could have possibly happened,” a representative for the retailer told KVVU.

“We have been in constant contact with the pet parent since this occurred and will continue to do everything we can to help support her during this difficult time,” the spokesperson added.

Seifert, meanwhile, argues that that the details aren’t adding up.

“What were these two groomers doing? Why did no one notice where the dog was? Why was she under a table? How does a dog go in for a bath and get crushed in 13 minutes?” she wondered. “They told me my dog was dead by 6:43 p.m. I dropped her off at 6:30 p.m”

Seifert is now waiting on the results of Minni’s autopsy report. She also hopes to have the surveillance footage of the incident reviewed as she considers filing a lawsuit.

“People’s pets are their family members,”  Seifert said. “She wasn’t just a pet.”

AOC in PETA doghouse after adopting purebred French bulldog — instead of setting example with rescue pup

Westlake Legal Group AP20008675186849 AOC in PETA doghouse after adopting purebred French bulldog -- instead of setting example with rescue pup fox-news/person/alexandria-ocasio-cortez fox-news/lifestyle/pets fox news fnc/lifestyle fnc Danielle Wallace article 9cece8ba-638b-575c-9cbb-4c744e986fed

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, was slammed by the animal rights organization PETA on Thursday for not being a good role model.

The New York Democrat could have influenced her millions of social media followers by adopting a rescue mutt from a shelter, PETA argued, but instead the congresswoman took home a purebred French bulldog.

“AOC had a chance to set a compassionate, responsible example in the face of the homeless-animal crisis, but instead, she apparently inadvertently contributed to the problem,” PETA President Ingrid Newkirk said in a letter. “PETA is urging her supporters not to follow her lead in this case and to stick up for the underdog by choosing to give a lovable mutt a new lease on life.”

AOC ACCUSES HOUSE REPUBLICAN OF RACISM AFTER HE CALLS OUT ‘SQUAD OF AYATOLLAH SYMPATHIZERS’

The freshman “Squad” member had introduced her yet-to-be named Frenchie in an Instagram story earlier in the week. She never confirmed the breed or if she purchased her pet from a breeder.

“He doesn’t have a name yet!” Ocasio-Cortez said in one Instagram story post, asking for suggestions. “We are thinking something Star Trek related or Bronx/Queens/NYC/social good related.”

But compared to followers who fawned over the animal’s cuteness and tweeted Ocasio-Cortez images of their own dog, Newkirk was less than amused.

“French bulldogs are inbred in order to produce “breed-specific traits,” which cause health problems that many people who will be influenced by your purchase won’t be able to afford to address,” her letter continued.

“With the millions of homeless dogs out there, you apparently chose to buy a purebred puppy instead of adopting one from an animal shelter. Right this minute, on Petfinder alone, there are more than 110,000 dogs—including French bulldogs—who need homes. Animal shelters are bursting at the seams with hundreds of thousands more, many of whom will be “put to sleep” for lack of a home.

The letter urges the freshman congresswoman to visit any NYC Animal Care & Control center and adopt a shelter dog to give her new French Bull Dog a companion while she’s away traveling the country or bust working on Capitol Hill. PETA said it was also sending Ocasio-Cortez a copy of the book “Dogs Hate Crates” to explain “why crate training is not humane or effective.”

“We’re asking that you please be a part of the solution to ending the cat- and dog-overpopulation crisis and consider setting the right example for your millions of followers by adopting a mutt and encouraging them to do the same,” Newkirk concludes.

Ocasio-Cortez has documented on her Instagram story how she was crate training her dog.

“He’s good about his crate when we are right next to it, but he’s such a velcro pup that at night he whimpers if he’s not right next to us. We’re working on it!” she wrote.

“We are working really hard to socialize the pup to new environments, different people, travel, etc.,” she said, adding, “He’s doing great so far!”

She also responded to one Twitter user who asked if she would be bringing the puppy to work on Capitol Hill with her.

“The goal is to train him to be a community pup,” Ocasio-Cortez said, sharing a photo of the dog asleep in her lap. “Ideally we want to work to the point where he can enjoy town halls, be an Amtrak pup, come to the office, etc. But first, naps.”

A video of a stray dog waiting outside of Subway store for food has gone viral.

“This stray dog has been coming to subway every night for the past year,” the employee wrote. “We always feed her.”

The Subway worker is seen packing some assorted meats, including turkey and bacon strips, and then bring it outside to Subway Sally. The adorable pooch immediately begins chowing down on the food.

Twitter users immediately fell in love with Subway Sally.

“Someone adopt her I wanna cry,” a Twitter user commented.

“Someone adopt her please,” another tweeted.

“You even use gloves to serve sally,” another Twitter user pointed out.

Even Subway’s official Twitter account weighed in on the viral video, tweeting: “Subway Sally just made all of our dreams come true”

Some Twitter users, however, chose to focus on the fact that the Subway employee fed her bacon, which they said wasn’t healthy for a dog.

“Not to be dramatic but you are going to give that dog pancreatitis feeding it bacon,” someone tweeted, while another said: “That garbage will make her sick!”

Others zeroed in on how well-groomed Subway Sally appeared to be for a stray.

“How this dog a stray when she looks like she’s using Tresemme,” one Twitter user commented. “I know a stray when I see one… This is a spoiled little girl sneaking out & getting free Subway.”

Another person cared less about Subway Sally and more about actual Subway eaters.

Hunter kills mountain lion after it ‘partially consumed’ pet dog

Pet owners in an Idaho town may be able to rest easy.

A hunter killed a mountain lion that “attacked and partially consumed” a pet dog near Cascade, Idaho, on Jan. 3. It’s unclear if this lion was responsible for another dog attack that occurred nearby several days earlier.

The Idaho Department of Fish and Game issued a press release about the incident, confirming that the lion responsible for at least one dog attack had been killed.

In early January, a neighbor of the dog’s owner discovered the remains and notified the owner and the Valley County Sheriff’s Office. Officers responded to the scene, along with a houndsman and a local hunter.

The lion was discovered nearby, where it was “spooked from a day bed.” After the hounds chased the lion up a tree, it was killed by the hunter. The lion, a young male, reportedly had porcupine quills stuck in its skin near its mouth and head, which is apparently common for the area.

According to the Idaho Department of Fish and Game, mountain lion attacks on people and animals are rare. When lions do attack pets as a food source, however, the department takes the situation very seriously as “the risk to human safety is heightened.”

Florida cops paid a visit to a home after receiving reports of a woman screaming, only to learn that the noise wasn’t a woman in need of help —  it was the homeowner’s pet parrot, who had a lot to say.

Police arrived at a couple’s Lake Worth Beach home just before New Year’s Eve, after a neighbor called the authorities over the concerning pleas for help, according to ViralHog.

Home security footage shows the husband fixing his wife’s car as four deputies approach the driveway. His 40-year-old parrot, Rambo, is heard yelling “help” and “let me out!”

The unidentified man then called out the parrot’s name and went to fetch him to introduce the squealing culprit to deputies.

“Rambo, meet the boys in green,” he said, before showing the men some of Rambo’s tricks.

The man revealed that the parrot’s yelling is something he taught him when he was a child.

“Sometimes Rambo yells ‘help, help, let me out.’ Something I taught him when I was a kid and Rambo lived in a cage,” the man said.

Though the man was startled by his visit from law enforcement, he said “we all had a good laugh” after the fact.

He also took Rambo to meet the concerned neighbor to explain everything.

This is definitely a unique way to turn a man down.

A woman brought her 2019 to a hilarious end by reportedly pranking a man who sent her his number. Instead of chatting him up, she tricked him into thinking that he had just adopted a chimp.

Emily Cain, from England, shared images of the text exchange she says happened between her and the unnamed man on her Twitter page, where she explained, “A lads just sent me his number so thought I’d take advantage of it.”

The first image shows the beginning of the text conversation, where she sent him the following message: “Thank you and congratulations! You have successfully adopted bubbles the chimp! $9.85 will be charged to your bill per month. To cancel this subscription without any further being charged, just reply to this message with the word STOP.”

The full conversation (WARNING: screenshots include graphic language) can be seen on her Twitter page.

When the prank victim responded, “Stop,” she decided to keep the joke going.

“Thank you,” she replied, “and congratulations from us an animal rescue center and Bubbles himself for donating an additional $6 per month to help for food and water for Bubbles! To cancel this subscription without being charged any further, just reply to this message with the world [SIC] STOP.”

Once again, the man replied, “Stop,” to which she replied, “Thank you and congratulations for paying an additional $4 per month to receive a cuddly toy version of Bubbles.”

This continued for a few more messages before the seemingly angry man demanded to speak with someone from support.

When he thought he’d been connected with support, he wrote, “Hello, hope you have had a good Christmas. I received a text message today regarding me paying a monthly direct debit to save a monkey. Could I cancel all of the direct debits to my account please? I didn’t sign up for them. Thanks.”

At this point, Cain decided to pull back the curtain and wrote, “You have been pranked by the prank patrol, love from Emily Cain.”

Some users were skeptical as to the veracity of the images, with one questioning how the prank’s victim didn’t notice all of the spelling mistakes.
