A little kid has finally been returned to his father after been seen on St. Louis streets straying with no parental guidance.

The kid, Kh’amorion Taylor was observed by a neighbor on the morning of Oct. 1 strolling around in his nightwear. The neighbor, a female who pleaded anonymity was also surprised to see a pit bull around the young lad. 

“He looked well taken care of, he was very neat, very clean; he just didn’t have the shoes on,” she told FOX 2 of Taylor.

The neighbor was thus overcome with the responsibility of finding Taylor’s parents. “I knocked on the doors up and down the street. Knocked on the doors, no answers; no one who did answer, they didn’t recognize the child.”

After a post went round on social media, Taylor’s father came across it and had Young Taylor reunited with him. This is of course largely due to the neighbor who made it clear it was nothing and was just offering to help.

“It is important that we stick together, that we help each other, that we go back to the things that our grandparents and their community used to do,” she told FOX 2. “That we build a sense of unity.”

The young boy on the other hand has grown fond of the stray pitbull and was heard saying “puppy” as he was being reunited with his father.

The St. Louis Police Department is pondering on the possibility of adopting the stray pitbull.

Little Boy Has Missing Pet Returned — After a Day of Pampering

Children don’t just treat their stuffed animals as toys, but as loved and cared for comfort items that fulfill many of their emotional needs. They take them everywhere, making sure their every need is met, treating them as their own children. It can even be said that caring for their stuffed animals allows them a needed sense of control, giving them a level of responsibility they can handle as practice before they start having bigger responsibilities. They pretend to feed them and put them to bed, and children learn empathy as they care for their loved stuffed animals, often keeping them in a safe place as they grow up and giving them to their own children.

That is why losing a stuffed animal can be so upsetting and even tragic to a young child, and the people at the Lavish Dog Day Spa understood how important it was to take care of a lost stuffed animal and help get it back to the child. The spa is already special in that it treats each dog as an individual, giving them one on one attention. The stylists have 2 and a half decades of experience but they believe that what makes their place special is how relaxing the experience is. They do it all, including nail grinding, ear cleaning, tooth brushing, and hair cleaning with premium products.

The staff at the Lavish Dog Day Spa found the lost stuffed puppy outside on a bench, and they decided to put him on their social media so people would know he was there. The lost pup was a very distinctive looking stuffed animal, with green and blue ears and paws. There would be no mistaking this one with another. While they waited for his owner to show up, the staff gave the stuffed puppy his own spa day. That way his owner would know that he was well taken care of while he was away!

Among the services received by the lost puppy were: a relaxing bubble bath, a nice shampoo, and a good comb out. After he was dry and looking clean and shiny, the lost pup got a pretty blue bow All of this was posted on Facebook so the pup’s owner would know that during the time he was lost, he was with people who were caring for him.

All the efforts paid off! The lost dog’s owner saw the posts online. His mom took him to pick up the pup as soon as possible, and they were happy to be reunited. The mom thanked the spa for not just returning the lost “pet,” but for taking such good care of him. The lesson in all this is that there are some really good people in the world, and just because you have lost something very dear to you, that doesn’t mean that it will be lost forever. If you are lucky, your lost items will be cared for by caring people like the ones at the Lavish Dog Day Spa.

This 5-year-old’s Gift To Firefighters is Boosting Their Morale

The mysterious character in the movie Star Wars: The Mandalorian has been a huge boost to firefighters in the Western U.S. And it’s all due to a kid who sent the doll as a gift item.

Five-year-old Carver and his grandmother Sasha Tinning were looking for items to contribute towards a donation campaign for firefighters when they saw the doll.

“I turn around and this Baby Yoda is just looking right at me and he was a darn cute little fella,” Tinning told The Associated Press. “I said, ‘Hey, this looks neat, maybe we should take this to the firefighters.'”

Carver consented and scribbled a note to go along with the toy. “Here is a friend for you in case you get lonely,” he wrote.

The organizer of the donation campaign, Tyler Eubanks saw the enthusiasm in Carver and made it possible Baby Yoda—the toy and the note got to the firefighters.

Amazingly, baby Yoda got love from the fire crew. They’ve made sure he’s always with them on their travels. They also take photos of him when they work, to be sent to Eubanks. She documents all of the toy’s travel with the crew and posts the photos on a Facebook page she created. This has been getting traction in the past few months.

Carver’s note is still attached with the toy and he’s gained widespread reputation amongst the firefighters.

“I really didn’t know that this was going to literally take off like a wildfire,” Eubanks said. “They’re having fun and it’s taking stress out of a very dark situation.”

Baby Yoda was part of a helicopter trip with TJ Ramos, who spearheads an air tactical group with the Oregon Department of Forestry. The group was elated when they saw Baby Yoda with Ramos.

“You could instantly see everyone perk up a little bit, some smiles came on some straight faces and it was a different day,” Ramos said. “There was a lot of, ‘Oh, my kid was telling me about Baby Yoda, can I get a selfie with him?’ I think it not only added some morale and just a lift to everyone, I think it added almost a connection to home life.”

Firefighting teams all over California, Washington and Canada have also heard of Baby Yoda and even made a request for a visit.

Staff Sgt. Jaebyn Drake, a firefighter who’s with the Oregon Air National Guard said Baby Yoda has been a source of motivation to the firefighters. “It made them think about home and think about the loved ones that they left behind back home while they were out working long days and working this grueling, not-so-much-fun task,” Drake said.

The toy may have been a little item from the lad, Carver but no doubt, Baby Yoda has been a huge boost to their firefighting efforts.

Old Dogs Are Given The Opportunity To Enjoy Their Last Years

It’s been often said dogs go to heaven after they die. Yet when these animals get old and are given to shelters, their latter years don’t become comfortable.

There’s however a different practice at Marty’s place in Upper Freehold, New Jersey. Here, senior sanctuary dogs are offered a new “leash” on life.

The founder, Doreen Jakubcak made a discovery these old dogs are being declined when people want to adopt dogs. With this in mind, she sought to care for these special types of dogs who are “old”. She put her focus on re-homed canines, age 7 and up.

The dog retirement home has utilities ranging from generous living quarters, medical and dental care, regular exercise, and activities that elevate their strengths and default areas.

There are sofas for comfort, a built-in pool for dogs who love to swim. These dogs are having the times of their lives here.

In recent times, dogs at Marty’s Place would eventually go on to be adopted, yet none of them have that feeling of being abandoned. “When we commit to a dog that comes to Marty’s Place they do have a forever home,” Jakubcak told ABC News. “That forever home can be here at the sanctuary and when we can we try to place a dog into a new adoptive home.”

Jacubcak pointed out that Marty’s Place has been catering to dogs of older age, from 10 to 18. Most have health issues before they come to Marty’s Place and these issues make it difficult to find new homes for them.

However, Jacubcak thinks potential adopters shouldn’t rule out older dogs.

“When people hear the term senior dogs, they immediately think, ‘Ugh they’re boring,’ but some are high energy and require lots of exercise and stimulation,” Jakubcak told Good Morning America. “I do believe they know instinctively what you did for them and they are forever grateful. That bond… is nothing like you could imagine.”

“They’re so lucky that they can live out their golden years in this amazing place. We should all be that lucky, as human beings, we should be that lucky,” Volunteer Rennie Rankin added. “Every time I walk in the door, I think about that. Wow, this is how I should live out my last days.”

Jakubcak pointed out that Marty’s Place is more than just a sanctuary, it’s a family. “That family consists of our dogs, our staff, and our volunteers,” she said. “Everybody that’s here truly embraces the dogs and truly cares about them like they’re their own personal dogs.”

Covid-19 affected plans for a boy who had expected to celebrate his 9th birthday with friends. Yet his mum pulled a surprise— she requested people celebrate Jack, the birthday boy with birthday cards and the response she got was enormous. 

With her son expecting a birthday party, his first in three years as Jack was unable to celebrate the last two years due to his ordeal with Osteogenesis Imperfacta, otherwise called, Brittle Bone disease.

Thus, he looked forward to having a party this year, but that had to be canceled due to the pandemic restrictions. Ruth was devastated when she opened up to him about the cancellation, however she came up with a plan by asking people to send Jack birthday cards.

“The response has been unbelievable,” she said.

She’s since gotten over 1,000 cards with some coming in for Ruth. It’s unbelievable some of these cards have come in from far places like France, Switzerland, Ireland and the UK.

She’s overwhelmed with the reach out and it means “Jack is having a birthday he will never forget”

Residing in Raphoe, county Donegal, Ruth said “We have had cards and parcels from Dublin , Carlow, Mayo, Donegal, Monaghan, Derry and London and that’s not even half of them opened.”

“I’d like to thank each and everyone that took the time to make/send a card/parcel to Jack.  It has been a very emotional and overwhelming few days to watch the delight in Jack’s face.  This will be a birthday never to forget.”

She speaks about the feedback. “Unbelievable. I never imagined this response. I’m actually very emotional this last few days to see everyone come together at such difficult times.”

“I set out to do this thinking that my Facebook family would send cards to make Jack’s birthday special (and) not expecting it to go viral.”

The support shown by the charity organization, Little Blue Heroes was immense as Jack is a member as an honorary Garda. “Ever since he was made an honorary Garda in January 2018 up in Garda Headquarters, he has the full uniform and goes on duty in Letterkenny Garda Station from time to time,” she said.

“All I can say is this is a birthday Jack will never forget. I had one wish to make him happy and my wish definitely came true.”

Overall, she’s filled with gratitude and appreciated everyone who’s sent in cards “I will be forever grateful to each and every one of them.”

Students Now Find School Exciting Due To These Two Teachers Transforming Students’ Desks Into Jeeps

First day at school was mostly an exciting day for us all when we were kids. The holiday is over. Happy to meet your new classmates. Plus, it’s your first time of having a teacher. Then there’s a desk all to you.

Things will be quite different for kids this year. The whole scenery of a new environment will be retained. For sure, there will be a uniform. But what might scare kids is having a desk surrounded by plastic screens you’re not used to. Especially as a six-year-old.

For these two teachers in a school in Florida, they’ve come up with a solution to make the plastic dividers —fixed on desks to protect the children in times of COVID-19— “less strange” and more exciting for the new pupils.

Involved in this were Patricia Dovi and Kim Martin who are first-grade teachers of St. Barnabas Episcopal School in DeLand, Florida. They’ve transformed those dividers into windshields and Windows of Jeeps. Surprising.

“Anything that we can do to add some silliness and some creativity to get them excited is going to be really important in the longevity of this school year,” Dovi told Insider.

While the school came up with the plexiglass, the decorations were sponsored by Dovi and Martin. For the desk, Martin revealed it took a week to complete.

The teachers had support from families and friends in turning the desks into eye-catching jeeps with customized license plates.

Students resumed school to see a new, exciting sight. Their own personalized car waiting for them.

“It’s going to be more fun to say, ‘Hey, purple Jeep, you’re getting out of your lane,’” Martin joked. “I think it will be a smart way to keep the kids engaged.” We have no doubt about that.
