It is a widely known fact that animals can have a positive effect in reducing stress levels and aiding in the treatment of those suffering from Anxiety disorders, Autism, and depression. Studies from Harvard University going back to the early 1980s support the idea that dogs have enormous health benefits for people, both mentally and physically. Pets have been shown to lower blood pressure, improve recovery from heart disease, and also improve people’s psychological well-being and self-esteem. Add to that the positive effect of therapy dogs, which have long provided assistance to humans in the outside world by offering a calming presence and a personal support guide. The latest evidence is for children with autism, who have been found to greatly benefit from assistance dogs.

- 13/07/2017A Little Kindness and Love Can Indeed Change a Life http://bit.ly/2ueZuEW
It is an unfortunate and sad fact that not every dog is provided a loving and safe home. This can be due to the dog being born on the streets or being abandoned in early puppyhood because their owners were either unable to provide for them or decided that owning a dog was too big of a responsibility.Pooches like these regularly spend the greater part of their lives capriciously meandering the streets, fighting off dangers and ailments and scarcely scrounging enough food scraps to survive. Kelsey had been one of those dogs living in the streets, homeless and a stray, she was just barely surviving.

Ashlee Holland was shocked after she saved a pregnant dog on the euthanasia list from her local pet shelter and the doggie mom gave birth to 18 puppies! Holland, a mom from Missouri, adopted mom-to-be Ava, a golden retriever-chow mix who is believed to be between the ages of two and four years old, from Midwest Animal ResQ in Raytown, Missouri. Ava was on the euthanasia list. She had no other choice, no other hope. I was basically her last resort along with Midwest Animal ResQ,” Holland told WDAF. “No dog deserves to be put to sleep for space.”

Little miracles happen all around us everyday and sometimes, those miracles come in with fur and an unconditional, special love that changes everything. For Cody Leightenheimer and his family, it was a difficult time, he and his wife had lost two children due to miscarriage and he felt he had a hole in his heart that was a bottomless pit that he would never be able to fill again. One day while Cody was working his job at a wood flooring factory, he was approached by a scrawny, big-eyed puppy.

Pods of killer whales are pursuing the fishing boats of Alaska and stealing the fishermen’s halibut catches, leaving the crew with no fish and out of thousands of gallons of fuel attempting to escape from the fish thieves. This isn’t a new development that killer whales or orcas, can learn to recognize boats and then steal their catches.

Comments25/06/2017 #1 Deb 🐝 HelfrichWell who stole first?
The whole concept of 'stealing' is anthropomorphizing in the most insidious way.
Everything in the world is just there for humans to make use of at our sole discretion. Therefore smart orcas, simply making use of a round-up of fish are the 'bad guys?'
Nope. All sorts of mammals and birds capitalize on our hoarding ways, not to show us a lesson, but because nature loves efficiency. It there is a bunch of stuff in one place, no wild animal is going to respect our concept of 'property' and go looking somewhere else for the scraps left to them.
They are going to figure out how to take from the cache of resources.

Comments25/06/2017 #8 stephan metral 🐝 Innovative Brand AmbassadorIn Canada thieves specialized themselves in folowing the delivery trucks and when a delivery man leaves your package at the doorstep because you weren't home, they still your non delivered in hand property. Thief, it's a job, you study, you organize, you adapt and you make a living, till you are caught.25/06/2017 #7 Lance 🐝 Scoular#5
I received the Fedex tracking number from the supplier by email and I contacted the Fedex
office here in Sydney with the consignment note number.
I authorised Fedex to use my debit card for any charges that Customs may levy and advised that I would not be at home when the Fedex driver made the delivery.
As a signature was required on delivery, I negotiated an arrangement that I would leave a copy of the consignment note with a signature acknowledging receipt of the package in our mail box. 📝📪
I also advised that I would leave unlocked the boot/trunk of one of our cars in the driveway so the Fedex driver could place the package there and with a click press the lid locked. 🚗
And it was done.
When I arrived home the next day I unlocked the car's boot, and voila, the package was there safe and sound. 📦
Mission accomplished! 👍
BUT, that was due to my industry knowledge and expertise. 🤔
For the lay person, the result may have not have been as succesful John, for the reasons you detail in you 🥚cellent article.
BTW John, did you recieve @David B. Grinberg 's gift 🎁 yet? 😁25/06/2017 #6 Harvey LloydThe issues you describe are of consequence, but sense their is an even larger issue at play. With each added convince do we not remove the human aspect of jobs, social and conversation? Can we truly continue to populate the earth under a a time for money standard where time is being replaced by conveniences?
I do enjoy the conveniences and use them. The "burden" of security of the package will eventually give way to the security of our jobs.25/06/2017 #5 Lance 🐝 ScoularPt 1/2
You raise important issues John, domesticaly. But purchasing from overseas can increase the risks.
In Australia, there are a great deal of online purchases from overseas as well as domestically, as overseas prices on certain products can be cheaper than from local stores either brick and mortar or online.
Back in about 2003, I ordered some sotware in a box (CD) from the USA. It came by Fedex to Australia. As a Licensed Customs Broker in Australia at the time, (I relinquished my licence after 40 years) I knew there wold be some issues to overcome as a small package import even though it was coming express courier by Fedex.
I paid the supplier for the product and the freight and delivery to Australia and my home to the supplier, but I wold have to pay any applicable duty and Goods and Services Tax (GST).24/06/2017 #4 Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand AmbassadorVery timely, John. I order most of my products via online merchants. I live in an apartment complex, which one of the advantages is most of my packages are left at the office if we are not home. However, not all of them and especially during the holidays. This is a great idea!

One of the saddest things to see is a dog, left outside to endure the brutal elements, chained or tethered and obviously forgotten, neglected, and ignored. Belinda discover two dogs living abandoned in her neighborhood, and she took them in. Giving them food and a home was easy, but her landlord did not allow dogs in the house she was renting, so she had to keep them outside. And without a fenced yard, that meant Mama and Oreo had to be chained. One day, Mama broke free of her chain, and wandered away. But Mama and Belinda were lucky, because the County animal control officers brought Mama back home and shared with Belinda, now Mama’s human ‘Mama’, some very special contact information which would change their lives.
