Two dogs who were separated as puppies bumped into each other on a walk and shared a hug.
If you are one of the many people who are blessed to have found a best friend in a dog, I am, like the rest of the dog-less population, incredibly jealous of you.
It’s pretty normal behaviour for doggos to get excited when they see another furry little friend. Their inquisitive tails will start wagging wondering if this other pup will be a friend or a foe.
Well in this unusual and heartwarming case, the other dog was very much a friend.
Two cockapoos, Monty and Rosie, were born in the same litter last June and when they bumped into each other recently in the park, they hugged each other as if they had been reunited.
Rosie’s owner Susan Killip told the Dodo: “There were six of them, but Monty and Rosie were always together.”
Susan added: “It was so lovely, they both just jumped up and hugged each other. It was amazing they remembered each other after 10 months of not seeing each other.”
But we’re not the only ones touched by the reunion. When twitter user Libby shared the reunion her dad messaged her about, the Tweet when viral with over 900,000 likes.
Susan said the owners are planning on keeping in touch, although it’s ‘a bit difficult at the moment,’ they plan on having ‘doggy walkies together’ when this is all over.
Experts have debated whether it is even possible for dogs to recognise each other like this. Although dogs of the same breed often gravitate towards each other, Tufts University says ‘we’ll probably never know for sure’ if dogs can process a familial connection like this.
It sure does look like they can with that beautiful hug!
Lorry spills hundreds of Kopparberg cans across the A50 causing delays
A lorry shed its load and released hundreds of unopen Kopparberg cider cans across the A50 early this morning.
Derbyshire Roads Policing Unit tweeted to ‘expect delays’ after a lorry ‘shed its load’ of Koppaberg cans across the A50 junction with A515 Sudbury.
The incident happened at about 2am and the road only opened at 6am after contractors cleared the debris.
A later Tweet added that the road has been reopened ‘following a quick response by recovery agents and highways contractors’. They added that the road is now ‘clear for your journey this morning’.
The pictures attached to the original Tweet show that the parked Knights of Old logistics lorry’s blue Tarpaulin curtain looks to have been ripped.
Unfortunately, this means the cans have now all been cleared away for those looking for a cheeky bargain.
Old Labrador found abandoned with heartbreaking note from owner
This is so sad.
A 10-year-old Labrador has been found tied to a gate with a heartbreaking note.
The elderly black Labrador was found tied to the gate outside Jasmil Kennels in Upchurch near Sittingbourne, Kent.
The note said the owner had had the dog for the past 10 years but decided to give him up because he had ‘not learnt to be good’.
The full note reads: “Hello, pls can you take me in as my owner has abandoned me after 10 years because I have not learnt to be good, so I have been returned here where he found me. Thank you for looking after me, sorry for inconvinance.” [sic]
Swale Borough Council’s stray dog service is appealing for more information as the Lab was not fitted with a microchip
In a social media post the service said: “This elderly black Labrador was found tied up to railings at Jasmil Kennels this morning. We would very much like to speak to the owner to establish why the dog has been abandoned.
“If you recognise him and can be of any assistance, please contact the council in confidence. He will now be taken into our care.”
A spokesperson for Swale Council said: “If an owner is struggling with their dog, this is not the way to deal with it.
“Re-homing is the last option, but this isn’t the way to do it, so we would appreciate any information we can get so we can speak to the owner.”
Police towed away a £150k Bentley after the driver ‘tried to be smart’
Greater Manchester Police have shared the moment they carted off a £150,000 Bentley after the driver tried to be ‘smart’.
As the Bentley slogan goes, ‘there’s no replacement for displacement’, but this driver had to watch his white GT insurance-less Bentley cruise away from him, leaving him alone in the rain this weekend. Ouch.
The car was spotted outside a city centre bar with no insurance over the weekend. Police say the driver of the convertible Continental GT ‘tried to be smart’, refusing to hand over the keys after they’d tracked him down.
It made no difference, though, as the police seized the car anyway and even took to social media to share pictures.
The Facebook post said: “Car seized on Peter Street for no insurance. Driver was located with keys in a nearby bar.
“Trying to be smart, he refused to hand over the keys, thinking we’d leave his Bentley Continental GT where it was.
“How wrong, car was dragged onto back of recovery truck. #NoInsurance”
