They just amaze me

Spread the love

Last Saturday we went to the 10th Tripawed Meet Up in our dog park. These dogs just amaze me and I always say we humans can learn from them.

Madam watching what is going on

Most of the dogs are rescues and unfortunately have been dumped in shelters because of their disabilities but it does not bother them as they are happy dogs, some hopping on two legs, others with three legs and they just playing around, begging for treats and absolutely adorable.

It was a great day to have a picnic in the park with all dog parents, with lots of laughter and forget all the world problems.

This Saturday, August 21st is International Homeless Animal Day – Every year on the third Saturday of August, International Homeless Animals Day is celebrated to draw attention to the issue of pet overpopulation.

To raise awareness spay and neuter clinics are held, adoption fairs are held, unfortunately because of Covid a lot of these events will not be happening but we can all do something to stop the over population of pets.

We must remember that worldwide there is an over population of pets and if we do what I listed below these poor homeless pets will not face euthanasia and will live happy healthy lives in homes.

How can we help with over population of pets :

  • Spay and Neuter
  • Foster a shelter pet
  • Microchip your pets
  • Become an animal rescue advocate

So Layla is begging everyone to spay and neuter your pets, do not buy from breeders but open your heart to a homeless pet who desperately needs a safe home,

Thinking of all the homeless pets

Be safe everyone, with a woof and love from Layla

  1. I’m glad you and Layla had a great time at the Tripawed Meetup last weekend. Yes! International Homeless Animal Day is this week. Kuddos Layla for helping bring awareness and spotlight the need for people to adopt and rescue. Pet overpopulation is a serious problem but we can take action to change that little by little. Enjoy your weekend.

    • Thanks Kamira and we need to be their voices to help each one, it is so important especially as unfortunately so many are being dumped at shelters

  2. What a fun day for you and Layla! These dogs are amazing! Every year (pre-covid) my town would have a pup plunge at the local pool. This would be the last day the public pool would be open and only open to dogs. It was a fund raiser for shelter pets. I was so proud of my little guy the last time we went to the pup plunge. He went around and made sure to play with each pup, young, old, and so very carefully with the ones missing limbs and in chairs. Those dogs were so happy to have a playmate. They are amazing! Thank you for sharing!

  3. One of the cats I know is a tripod and speedy as heck so I know they are amazing animals.

    I was also reading about them is a Dutch animal magazine which covered 3-legged animals as part of a series on the adoptability of disabled pets. These cats and dogs are an inspiration to us all. They ALL need a home.

    • Marjorie I agree with you they do need homes and we can learn so much from them. I would love to know which magazine if you could share the name, thanks

  4. That day in the park looks amazing and such fun for those sweeties, they truly are very special and they all love to have fun and be loved. Thanks for joining our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

  5. I love your story about the tripod meetup – I’ve seen so many pet owners scared of having a tripod dog or kitty and honestly – they can really get around without much issue, and now with new technology, even the doggie wheelchairs can allow dogs to get almost anywhere! Enjoying reading about Layla’s adventures!

    • Thanks Niki, they really are amazing and like rockets when they have the wheelchairs and adapt so well its something we can learn from
      them. I am happy you enjoy reading about her adventures.
