A stray dog helped save 10 small puppies and their mother from cold temperatures at a park in south Dallas, reported Kennedy Ryan of KTLA5 News. Animal rescuers, Marina Tarashevsce and John Miller showed up at the park and heard relentless barking from a familiar face. A stray male dog that has been avoiding the rescuers for weeks was now clearly trying to get their attention. Afraid that the dog may be sick, Tarashevsce and Miller followed the persistent pup as his barking lead them to a heavily wooded area in the park.
As the two went deeper and deeper into the woods they began to hear the sounds of puppies crying. 10 shivering puppies and their exhausted mother were quivering next to a muddy creek sheltered by a burned out tree.
The rescuers gave the once elusive stray the fitting name of “Hero.” Miller explains, “He led us there. He took us to the puppies. That is exactly what he was trying to do.”
Once the puppies are old enough to leave their mom, the rescuers are happy to find homes for them.
Awesome job Hero!
How Pets Are Taking Their Thrones as the Stars of the Work-From-Home Paradigm Right Now
F or those privileged enough to be able to work from home, there are still inconveniences with the new arrangement: social isolation, lack of access to free office coffee, difficulty making meetings work remotely. But it’s also introduced plenty of positives: judgment-free fashion choices, cutting the commute down to the distance between bed and desk and — for some — lots more quality time with animal companions, an unexpected upside that is helping to warm the internet’s cold, anxious heart this week.
Dr. Hannah Fahey certainly didn’t expect spring semester to go like this. Fahey and her partner work at the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance in the University of Limerick, but for now they’re staying home after Irish universities announced closures until March 29 due to the coronavirus pandemic, making them part of the fortunate population capable of preemptively limiting exposure to COVID-19. But they’ve picked up some new home coworkers in the process: their two dogs, who have also become unwitting stars of video class sessions.
“In anticipation of the close, I had begun to trial online delivery of my lectures earlier in the week,” she told TIME about her preparation for teaching remotely. “However, I hadn’t consulted our canine companions prior to starting the Zoom session, and unfortunately the timing coincided with the postman!” Naturally, the dogs reacted quite vocally to the visitor at the door.
“My students were, however, quite amused at the barking, and soon order resumed.” Fahey and her partner have a 6-year-old Northern Inuit rescue named Cersei and an 8-month-old French bulldog named Yara. (“Jennifer is a big Game of Thrones fan!” Fahey noted about the origin of those names Thrones watchers will know that Cersei was the embattled Lannister queen, and Yara the Greyjoy princess and seasoned sailor — two characters who also loved playing a central role in the action.)
Fahey is not the only one who’s learned the joys and pitfalls of working from home with an animal companion who may not be too concerned about the importance of a phone call — or productivity. Twitter is alight with images of cats camped out on their owners’ keyboards and dogs underfoot. And then there’s Camber, the pet rabbit of Mar Hicks. Hicks is an associate professor of history and technology, and the author of Programmed Inequality, a book about women in computing. Like many others in the academic community, Hicks is now working remotely. “It has changed all of my teaching and meetings, and for teaching especially has created a huge amount of new work as professors struggle to suddenly teach online,” they admitted.
But Camber, who Hicks has had for about two years, is thriving. Always one to enjoy being the center of attention (he camps out in “one area in the house where you can’t fail to see him and have to avoid accidentally stepping on him,” and “won’t leave until you pet him for as long as he wants,” Hicks told TIME), Camber is now reaping the rewards of Hicks’s new work-from-home life. “Whenever I get up, he will follow me down the hallway and then try to get me to chase him back to the other room,” they said. “Of course I can’t really chase him I have to just pretend chase him. He always has to ‘win,’ because he likes to run but not to be caught.”
