Viral image shows Dog carrying newborn baby for help

A viral image showing a Dog carrying a newborn for help is prompting some to ask if a canine has more compassion for a human baby than humans do.

Dog finds newnborn

The baby was allegedly thrown away and the dog in Saudi Arabia rescued the child whose umbilical cord was still attached by carrying the newborn infant to a house where the dog allegedly alerted the owners the child needed help. It’s one of those, is this real moments?

According to reports, the newborn was rushed to the hospital and has survived.

As we watch horrific undercover footage of Planned Parenthood using the bodies of babies for research while they are still warm, stories like this make us scratch our heads to ask if a dog has more compassion than many humans.

One of many reasons we would question such a story and wonder if it was true. But, news sources like the Examiner say it is indeed real.

From their report:

    “The publication called “Sada” in Saudi Arabia stated it is not clear if the incident took place in the Gulf Kingdom or another country, but said the dog saved the newborn’s life. The paper stated the baby had been abandoned near a trash bin. The baby’s umbilical cord was still attached.

    “According to Health24.com, readers have called the entire situation “one of the most heartwarming animal-human encounters ever witnessed; a dog picked up a newborn where it was abandoned and took it to a nearby house.” Those who posted the pictures said the “dog carried the baby to the nearest house.” The occupants of the home rushed the baby girl to the hospital. “The baby’s life was saved by the dog,” and just had some superficial injuries, the paper said.”

The story has also been reported in Emirates247.com as well as LiveLeak.

While there is skepticism as to whether this image is indeed a true picture or not there have been incidents of dogs rescuing newborns in the past which Saynsumthn has covered here.

And in this story below- a family’s pet dog alerted it’s family to check on their baby who was not breathing:

Cartoon Network writer sends odd tweet about baby ending with #plannedparenthood

A Cartoon Network writer has sent out an odd tweet using the hashtag #plannedparenthood.

Kelsey Abbott IMD

Kelsey Abbott, whose Twitter page says she writes for Uncle Grandpa on Cartoon Network, tweeted this, “If I ever accidentally have a baby, I’m gonna dress it in a dog costume so hopefully my dog will raise it. #plannedparenthood”

According to the Cartoon Network, Uncle Grandpa is everyone on Earth’s magical uncle AND grandpa, who travels around helping people and changing their lives forever.

The show is obviously not intended for the very young and is rated PG.

Common Sense Media describes Uncle Grandpa this way:

Uncle Grandpa

    Parents need to know that although Uncle Grandpa is a cartoon, it isn’t appropriate for very young kids. Body-related gross-out humor is the main offender, as issues like obesity, farting (including a tiger who passes a rainbow trail from his rear end that doubles as a weapon), and the removal and ingestion of one’s own body parts are revisited ad nauseam. There’s no semblance of reality to the meandering, fantasy-based plots, and supporting characters are often rude to each other. Despite Uncle Grandpa’s craziness, he often proves himself helpful in a roundabout way. Violence is limited to physical exchanges with punching and kicking, as well as the occasional laser gun showdown or stray explosion.

From the looks of her twitter page, Abbott is obviously a comedian.

Although Abbott’s tweet is bizarre – she does not appear to have other public words of support for abortion giant Planned Parenthood.

Still, it is surprising that she would even put the term planned parenthood in a tweet given the potential outrage people might have in discovering that a Cartoon Network writer tweeted it.

Having said that, if you are writing for the Cartoon Network, it might be best not to tweet a joke about how you would let your dog raise a baby you “accidentally” had; a suggestion that could lead others to believe that you don’t like kids.

Just Say’n.

Pro-life dog rescues newborn baby boy !

Posted in Animal Rescue, Animals Pro-life with tags , , , , on November 14, 2014 by saynsumthn

A story about a dog which heard a newborn’s cry and brought the child alongside her own puppies was shared online in years ago.

It is so heartwarming, that I wanted to reintroduce it.

Dog saves newborn

Police in Argentina think the dog, named China, may have heard the cries of a newborn baby abounded by the child’s teen mother.

China was nursing her own puppies at the time and her motherly instincts kicked in.

Authorities say that had China not carried or dragged the child over to her pups when she did the little boy may have died.

Chief of Police Daniel Salcedo said the baby was found nestled down, keeping warm with the pups with only a few bruises after a neighbor heard the baby’s cries and called for help.

Dash Cam records Tx Deputy who shot farm dog after responding to theft call

Posted in Animal Abuse with tags , , , , , , , , , on April 25, 2014 by saynsumthn

*** Before you read and watch the vids- and no matter whose side you come down on – keep in mind the person ultimately responsible here is the THIEF that set this entire tragedy in motion. I hope you all will call for the THIEF to be prosecuted for animal abuse when found and arrested. If a person is killed in the act of a crime- the perpetrator is charged with murder. In this case, the thief should be charged with CRUELTY TO ANIMALS! ****

According to Fox 4, a Rains County, TX sheriff’s deputy accused of shooting and killing a farmer’s dog for no reason has been fired, officials with the county sheriff’s office confirmed Thursday.

The deputy argued that the dog, Candy, threatened his safety.

Candy’s owner, Cole Middleton, is a third generation dairy farmer. After Candy died, Middleton began a campaign on Facebook that is getting national attention and said she was killed for no good reason.

Last week, someone broke into Middleton’s house. He was on his tractor when the deputy arrived to investigate.

Middleton could see Candy in the bed of his truck, and when the deputy walked up to the house, Candy jumped down. She was barking, and then Middleton lost sight of her.

“The officer comes down and says, ‘Sir, I’m sorry, I shot your dog — she charged me,’” said Middleton. “I became very hysterical and very upset…I said, ‘No, no, no…you shot my baby.’”

Candy was more than just a pet to Middleton — the 2-year-old Blue Heeler was his work partner, always by his side.

“I was so upset,” Middleton told KLTV. “I went over there to her and she was still alive, and I begged and pleaded with him to please shoot her again because I don’t have any firearms. They got stolen.”

Middleton said Dooley got back in his patrol car and drove away.

Not wanting his dog to suffer, Middleton did “the otherwise unthinkable,” he told KLTV.

He filled a bucket with water. “I had to kill my dog with my bare hands and put her out of her suffering, praying for this to be over with,” he said.

When two state troopers and officers with the Emory City Police Department arrived later, Middleton said they drew their weapons when they saw the blood on his shirt. “That is the blood of my dog that I was holding because this deputy pulled up and shot her in my yard,” he told them. The officers then put away their tasers and pistols.

“I feel bad about shooting your dog,” Dooley says in a video Middleton recorded at the time. “I had no choice. I wasn’t going to get bit.”

UPDATE: Rains County attorney Robert Vititow said this afternoon that the deputy involved in the shooting has been terminated. His actions are being investigated for possible criminal charges.



On the owners facebook page: Justice for Candy Middleton he writes:

To serve and protect became invade and attack by Rains County Deputy Jerred Dooley ID #510
Good Friday became Bad Friday for our family. It started with me discovering my home had been broken into and several items of value stolen including my firearms. We attempt to guard against this, but we all know that unfortunately theft happens. When it does happen, we call our local law enforcement officials for help. “To serve and protect” is a motto that we all want to embrace at a time like this.

So that’s what I did. I called the Rains Co. Sheriff’s office and notified them of the burglary. I had no idea of how tragic that act of faith (in what is supposed to be the people who protect us) would soon become.

Our beloved blue heeler Candy was just like many of your beloved pets, a member of your family that’s more than just an animal. Candy was not only that, but a valuable employee at my dairy because she worked with me daily as I gathered cows, worked calves, etc. I can provide dozens of witnesses who can verify that Candy liked to be petted and loved and was NOT AGGRESSIVE AT ALL. She has NEVER bitten anyone in her short 3 year life, but if someone drove up to our residence she would bark like all GOOD dogs do.

Deputy Jerred Dooley arrived about 2.5 hours later to take report on the robbery that happened at MY RESIDENCE. Both my father and I were in the pasture next to my house harvesting our winter crops for our dairy farm. We both saw the officer pull up to my house and park behind my farm truck where my dog Candy was in the bed of it barking at the unknown vehicle. As we were coming to him in our tractors, less than 40 yards away, he got out of his vehicle. That’s when our loyal family member, Candy, came out of the bed of my truck and continued to BARK. We were both HONKING OUR HORNS at this point to let him know we were headed to him. MY FATHER AND I BOTH WATCHED HIM OPEN THE DOORS TO MY HOUSE AND STICK HIS HEAD INSIDE WITHOUT CAUSE OR PERMISSION!!!! Dooley then closes my doors, walks off my steps and tells me, “I shot your dog, sorry.” He told me this as I’m approaching the fence from my tractor. He shot Candy behind her ear, in the side of her head, in HER YARD. OBVIOUSLY SHE WAS NOT FACING HIM AS THE ENTRY POINT WAS BEHIND HER EAR!!!UNREAL!!! UNBELIEVABLE!!! REMEMBER I WAS THE ONE WHO WAS ROBBED!!! So he was there to HELP ME! “Serve and Protect?” More like “Invade and Attack”.

Dooley then retreats to his squad car, exclaims over his loudspeakers “do not approach the vehicle”, and calls in full reinforcements. He leaves my dog in my yard yelping and thrashing in unbearable pain. I BEGGED him to shoot her again (SINCE MY WEAPONS WERE STOLEN!) and he refused. I then had to do the otherwise unthinkable and take my poor baby’s life with my own hands while praying for this to be over with.

In a few minutes 2 state troopers (Hayes and Sneed) arrive in separate vehicles, along with the Emory City Police and the county investigator Mayer all with sirens blaring. The City Policeman exclaimed to my father and I to back up and step back as we are trying to explain what DEVASTATION has just happened. Officer Hayes had his tazer pulled and hand on his pistol. All of them together were VERY INTIMIDATING TO INNOCENT victims. The only thing I knew to do was grab my video camera phone and capture this because here again “protect and serve” was apparently invade and attack. After informing the officers I had a camera and was going to film, for my own sake, the Wood County State Trooper Hayes begins to MOCK me and wave at my camera. He then unprofessionally says “Hi mom! Hi Channel 8! How you doing?” This IS NOT A JOKE. THIS IS SERIOUS. I HAVE THE VIDEO! After several minutes of my father and I trying to explain to them that WE ARE THE VICTIMS the State Troopers ask, “So whose house got broke into? Whose blood is on your shirt?” SHOULDN’T THEY HAVE ALREADY BEEN AWARE OF THAT???

And I explain that MY HOUSE was broken into and this was MY poor Candy’s blood on my shirt. The blood was there because Dooley shot her and left me to do the unimaginable. Only then does the mocking stop, the tazer put away, and hands off the pistols (with the exception of Officer Hayes who continued to want to keep his hand on his gun because its “comfortable”). I finally was able to give report to Officer Sneed (who was professional and helpful) about my dog being erroneously shot in cold blood. I also gave report to Chief Investigator Mayer (who was also professional and helpful) about my house being broken into and robbed.

When we call on peace officers for their help and assistance we expect them to serve and protect us, especially if we are the victims. In this instance service and protection became an invasion and an attack that led to a life altering experience that will regrettably never be forgotten and cost my family a very precious and valuable member.

The RCSO released the following statement prior to the release of the necropsy:

The Rains County Sheriff’s Office would most importantly like to offer condolences to the Middleton Family as they have suffered a hard loss. The Rains County Sheriff’s Office has never encountered an issue of this nature, but plan to make positive changes for the future. The Rains County Sheriff’s Office is now in process of introducing new policies regarding animals at large when approaching residences. It is our goal to serve, protect, and keep all situations in which we are involved in safe for both people and animals. The Rains County Sheriff’s Office will continue the investigation until further notice and promises to make positive strides in this matter. They would like thank the Middleton’s and the citizens of Rains County for your patience during our investigation.

Middleton says he had an autopsy done on Candy, “The Autopsy is in and the results are just like we’ve been saying!!! See for yourself!! She was shot in the back if the head. The bullet exited the front of her face!!! No charges have been filed yet!! Ridiculous!!! As per the sheriff, Dooley WASNT even trained to use a tazer!! Unbelievable !!!”

According to WFAA, the Rains County Sheriff’s Office is inundated with complaints.

“Over and over, and hundreds and hundreds of calls and you pick it up, and it’s immediate cussing and vulgar,” said Sheriff David Traylor.

Thursday he fired Jerrod Dooley, who told the sheriff he was bitten by a dog on a prior job a few years earlier.

“By no means am I saying he’s guilty of anything at this time, other than poor judgment,” Traylor said. He said his department will conduct a full investigation, and if criminal charges are warranted against Dooley, he’ll suggest them.

“His career is ruined in this community. And there’s been threats toward him, threats toward this department,” Traylor said. “I think my officers would be in danger if he was still out there.”

Middleton said the threats should stop.

“You will never see that from me or my family. Obviously, I can’t control the masses, but we do not condone that type of behavior,” he said.

He said Dooley’s firing brings some relief, but little comfort.

“This cost me my best friend — a child,” he said.
