  1. Wasn’t it Anne Frank who said something like ~ people are basically good at heart. I do believe that. I know there are some who haven’t quite realized that their heart wants to open, but when I see something like this, it renews my faith that people care, that we will take care of each other and I do believe in and so love happy endings.

    • Yes! I love that quote by Anne Frank – thanx for the memory of reading (and re-reading) her diary. I agree with you here – this video definitely renews one’s faith in humanity. 🙂

  2. Oh my, my heart stood still for a moment..I m so glad the guy had the balls to rescue this dog! Phew. I ve just seen a comment where someone wrote: “If you lose your pet, just get out and get another one, they are just animals, get over it. ”

    What a dumbass. No matter if it s a human or an animal, we are all living creatures & deserve to get rescued & treated good! Point.

    • I know! I’ve watched this video so many times & I nearly cry every single time. God bless the guy who saved that poor baby, and God bless the lady who took her home. There was a story right after the tsunami about them, about how healthy & happy the dog is now with her, and how this lady says the dog saved her life as well by renewing her faith in God. 🙂 Searched forever but can’t find the story now to post here – disappointing!

      And, holy crap, I just read the YouTube comment you’re talking about & I cannot believe it. The guy teaches his kids not to brake for a dog in the road, but instead to “just drive right through it.” Un-freaking-believable! What’s happening to humanity? Thank you for making the very important point that “no matter if it’s a human or an animal, we are all living creatures & deserve to get rescued & treated good!”

      • I had a car-driving *instructor* (!!!) once, who told me that I shouldn’t brake for dogs on the road, just “hit them gently” and go on. I told him, “What if I just drive more slowly?” — but he was one of those who believe that, once you have a possibility (e.g. a car), you are allowed to use it to its fullest potential, regardless of the consequences for nature, etc.

        Btw, I was awarded too the VBA — come over to my blog and see how I mention you in my post 🙂

        • Okay, this guy sounds like he was missing parts. Namely, a heart! How do you drive a car into an animal “gently???” I’m sorry you had him for a driving ‘instructor.’ 😦 But I’m glad you left this comment because people should know this kind of ‘instruction’ is not okay! Thank you, Helene! 🙂

          And thank you for referencing me in a post on your blog. Sweet! 🙂 I would love to visit your blog, but I can’t find it. Your gravatar link goes to your FB page, and there’s no link to your blog from there. Did a search, but only FB comes up for your name. Can you put the link to your blog here?

    • Dear, wolke205. In one of her routines, Judy Tenuta makes reference (I believe) to the insensitive individual you described in your comment. She says, “It goes to prove there are some people who have absolutely no reason to live.”
