Good News – Saturday Animal Edition
Truffles the Kitty Four years ago Danielle Crull rescued a kitten in the woods. She didn’t realize she’d just found a new employee – one who is routinely named “Employee of the Month” (every month) at the children’s eye center that Crull owns.
Truffles, now famous for her glamorous glasses — which range from sparkling purple ones to her favorite green pair — works alongside her mom, an optician.
Crull runs her own practice, A Child’s Eyes, in Mechanicsburg, where her primary focus is infants, toddlers and children in elementary school.
Truffles happily comes out to show the child patients that glasses are cool by modeling her own extensive collection of sparkly eyewear. She’s even got an eye patch pair to help children with amblyopia. Children who are anxious about other medical appointments love to come in and play with Truffles who has her own social media pages (complete with videos that are adorable).
Military Dog Handlers Reunite with and Adopt Their Former Canine Partners After Pups Retire Handlers and their dogs become closely bonded during their service together and there are several agencies that assist in getting these handlers through the extensive steps involved to adopt the dogs. Or in the case of one dog, after he was taken off duty and retired early due to separation anxiety.
American Humane, the country’s first and largest humane organization, made these reunions possible through its military program dedicated to protecting the dogs that serve the United States. One way the organization cares for military canines is by placing the pooches with their former handlers once they retire. The bond between dog and handler is often unbreakable, and both humans and canines benefit from getting the chance to enjoy their friendships in everyday life.
