Like the story of an abused pit bull rescued by a concerned citizen, we have a new uplifting dog tale to share with readers.
Earlier this fall, an extraordinarily shaggy canine was found by Brenda Gough’s husband near the family’s farm in Ontario. It was so scared and so heavily matted that the poor creature could barely walk.
So Gough quickly brought the pooch to the Park Road Veterinary Clinic where she works.
Once there, the dog was named Shrek (“out of endearment,” the clinic wrote on Facebook. “The irony of him being found near a pond… how he will go from shy and afraid to loved and comforted with a family.”) and he was given a massive makeover.
According to the clinic, 3.5 pounds of hair was shaved off, an incredible transformation depicted here:
“He is still terrified and nervous,” Gough told Metro. “But looking for human contact, and learning all about love.”
Three days after Shrek was discovered, he was interacting with other dogs and permitting people to cradle him.
“He’s a special little guy with a huge fan club,” Gough told Metro, referring to all on Facebook who have shared Shrek’s story. “The outpouring of support from around the world has raised my faith in humanity.”
Kate Middleton, Prince William & Prince George: Touching New Photo Released
It looks as if Prince William and his wife, Kate Middleton, are like any other proud parents who like sharing photos of their baby, young Prince George.
The royal couple released another sweet portrait of themselves with the three-month-old royal baby on Saturday, and it’s worth a thousand words.
Sure, this is the future King of England, but any parents can relate to such a moment and the bond this new family shares … and they’re just so cute:
The intimate royal family moment was captured in the Morning Room at Clarence House following Prince George’s christening on Wednesday morning.
The 35-minute ceremony was attended by family members of Prince William and Kate Middleton, plus George’s seven godparents and their spouses.
Check out the previously released portraits after the jump …
The official royal family portraits make it seem like the big day went off without a hitch, and apparently it did, despite the unpredictability of babies.
The new parents were concerned that George would follow in the footsteps of his father, William, who cried during his own baptism in 1982. Not the case!
“He was such a good boy actually,” Kate said later.
“We’re very lucky, he’s not always like that.” To translate this content in other language, contact Translation Companies UK
