Early morning cattle call ...

Give it a few seconds and you see the first head pop up on the horizon ...
a trickle soon becomes a stream
and slowly they all gather
to ponder
the player ... and shower him with cattle calls....

Misa Minnie is a Rockstar at dog tricks!

Seeing how talented this little one is might inspire more interest in training.

The details as of this posting: "Misa Minnie is a 1 1/2 year old Yorkie in this video that is trained with positive reinforcement and lots of treats."

She already has 28,000 subscribers ... No doubt she'll get a hefty influx after this gem makes
the social media rounds.

One more note: "Now officially a Therapy Dog for children and people in hospice."

Job well done! Hail Misa Minnie!

Free at last - Raju the Elephant cries

The most heartrending story of the week has been that of the rescue of Raju the elephant.

[The team was astounded to see tears roll down his face during the rescue," Pooja Binepal of Wildlife SOS told The Mirror.

"It was incredibly emotional. We knew in our hearts he realized he was being freed. Elephants are majestic and highly intelligent animals. We can only imagine what torture the past half a century has been for him."

Fifty years in chains behind him, he is now safely in a new home. His story is here..

The video of his chains being cut ..

Raju is expected to spend some time being rehabilitated and then he will have the opportunity to
be with other elephants.

According to the source: “He will then join the rest of the elephants, including five flirtatious females. He’ll spend the rest of his life in a safe compound in dignity and free from suffering and pain.”

The charity - WildlifeSOS-UK is trying to raise £10,000 to help start Raju’s new life.

"All of the animals except for man know that the principle business of life is to enjoy it."
