Can You Imagine If You Marry with A Four-legged Friend?

On June 28, 2018, a very special wedding was held in a small fishing village in San Pedro Huamelula, Oaxaca, Mexico. The villagers married a crocodile to  Victor Aguilar Ricardez, the mayor of San Pedro Huamelula, for good luck and good harvest.

It is reported that marrying a crocodile is a custom of the Chontar Indians, which began in 1789. They believe that the ceremony can bring good luck to fishermen on the Pacific coast of the Isthmus of Tehuantepec of Oaxaca. In this custom, crocodiles are seen as princesses who bring peace and prosperity to the tribe.

The crocodile is mainly baptized first, then put on a custom wedding dress. On the wedding day, it wore a veil and marched on the street with orchestral music. After the parade, the crocodile held a wedding ceremony with the mayor in the town hall.

 

It is really an unimaginable behavior to marry an animal! However, this is not the only case that man marry with animals. We have found other cases of man marry with dogs to share with you.

An Indian married a dog in 2007

When Selva Kumarr was 18, he saw two dogs mating and killed them. He hung their bodies on a tree, and since then he has been bad. In that year, he not only lost his hands and feet but also lost his hearing. After 15 years, Kumar could no stand the pain of the “Curse of the Dog” any more, so he turned to an astrologer for help to get rid of the terrible curse. The astrologer told him: “Look for a dog to get married.” So in November 2007, Selva Kumar married a 10-year-old dog named Selvi.

An Australian married a dog in 2010

In 2010, a 20-year-old Australian man, Joseph Guiso, married his best friend Honey, a 5-year-old dog Labrador.

Guiso is a college student who gave a sweet kiss to his dog at the wedding. More than 30 of Joseph’s friends and relatives and the bride’s many four-legged friends witnessed this sweet moment.

Guiso calls himself a “monk,” and he feels guilty that he and Honey are living together in a non-marital relationship. In spite of this, he assured people that their love is pure and will be always courteous to each other.

An Indian girl married a dog in 2003

In June 2003, Karnamoni Handsa, a 9-year-old girl from a tribe in eastern India, held a wedding with a stray dog. This wedding is a part of an exorcism ritual because the local custom is: if a child’s first tooth is erupted in the upper gums, then the child will encounter a lot of risks in his life. Only to marry a dog can avoid the disaster.

The tribal elders were very open-minded, they said: ”Marriage with a dog does not affect the life of the little girl. She can still get married again, and she does not have to divorce the dog before remarriage.”

8 Tips to Help You Find Your Pet Lost on Fourth of July Independence Day

While the bad news is that my dog has escaped from its cage and hide its body under our car. Fortunately, we found it quickly and it was not out of condition. Did you find your four-legged friend who have run away during Fourth of July celebrations? If still not, we hope below tips can help reunite you with your pet quickly.

  1. Time is of the essence.

Don’t delay your search or believe that your pet will find their way home.

  1. Check for all local animal shelters, even those you think are so far that pet would not run to.

You can call the shelters but check in person is a better way because you can recognize immediately if you see your pet. And be sure to have a photo of your pet on-hand as well as their veterinary records.

  1. Post highly visible signs around your neighborhood.

Post flyers around your neighborhood with your pet’s photo, name, and your phone number.

Places like Craigslist, Facebook, Instagram and the Nextdoor app all help pets find their way back home.

  1. Look in those hard-to-reach places.

  1. Put personal items outside:

Leave your old T-shirt or pets bedding and toys on your patio to help your pet find his way back.

  1. Find out whether your animals were injured in crash:

We don’t want to think about the possibility that our pets were injured, but check with the state Department of Transportation and reach out to local police department by calling the non-emergency number and inquiring about crashes involving animals.

  1. Use your community newspaper:

Place a “lost pet” ad in the newspaper and search for the “found” section.

Help Dogs Overcome the Fear of the Independence Day Fireworks 2018

The July, 4th is US Independence Day, which is one of America’s principal legal holiday. People always enjoy themselves that day, however, dogs are under the most stress on this day. Endless fireworks displays may drive them crazy, and even make them fled in disorder and are nowhere to be found. Whether the plan is to go out to view some fireworks or host your own Fourth of July party, it’s important to remember to keep your furry friends safe during the holiday. Here are some simple tips to share with dog lovers.

First, try to stay with the dogs, touch them, and make them calm down. If you have to go out, remember to put them in a safe room, close the doors and windows, and turn on the TV to buffer the sound of fireworks.

Playing music is also a practical way to make dogs calm down. It is most effective to start playing the music before the fireworks displays begin, because the dog can feel calm and relaxed when the music is playing. It is able to connect music with calm emotions. Therefore, the music should be played in a few hours before fireworks begin, and continued to play until fireworks finished. Music doesn’t need to be loud, and it has been proven to be effective in stabilizing the dog’s nervous system.

Give the dog a place to stay indoors. Dogs can’t talk to you how they are afraid of loud noises, and they usually choose a small space to settle down. The cage will be a good choice if your dog feels safe in it.

Close the window and draw the curtains if possible. Cover the cage and dim the light are both helpful to pacify dogs. Shifting visual stimuli is a good way to stabilize dogs.

Make sure your dog has a positioning chip or wears an identification tag, and make sure the contact information above is up to date.

In addition, it is best to train the dog to know the way home.

I Can’t Stand To Have Only One “Take Your Dog To Work Day” Every Year, So I…

I can’t stand having only one “TYDTWDay” every year, so I…. want to share funny stories that day with you 🙂

Only I have a dog among all my colleagues, I am really the winner in life!

Dress your dog in a suit and let them experience the life of office workers!

I feel nervous because it is the first time for me to be a deliverer.

Taking dogs to the meeting and even boring meeting will be fun.

Let me see which one is better.

I don’t know what he is laughing at… emmm, so I laugh with him.

For me, going to work is just moving to another place to sleep.

Dog owner: I feel the burden on my shoulders is heavier…

But for this police dog, things become a little difficult, after all, itself is a dog and it wants to take another dog to work…. on second thought, it takes his “best friend” to the office….

TYDTWDay was first celebrated in 1999. 2018 marks the 20th annual event.

 It was created by Pet Sitters International (PSI) to celebrate the great companions dogs make and promote their adoptions. The event encourages employers to experience the joys of pets in the workplace for one day to support their local pet communities. PSI feels that through the events, non-pet owners are able to witness the special bond their co-workers have with their pets firsthand and be encouraged to adopt a new best friend of their own.

Who Is The Winner in 2018 World’s Ugliest Dog Contest?

The World’s Ugliest Dog Contest is an annual contest held in Petaluma, California, as part of the Sonoma-Marin Fair, to decide which of the dogs entered in the contest is the ugliest. Along with the title of “The World’s Ugliest Dog”, the winner’s owner receives a check for 1,500 dollar, a trophy and a free trip to New York City.

There is significant media coverage, and as many as 2,000-3,000 people attend the contest during the fair each year. The fair now holds an all-day Dog Lovers’ Festival preceding the evening contest.

The judges used the dog’s hair, defects, presence or absence of teeth, protruding tongues, and other distinctive features as criteria for judgment.

Zsa Zsa, a 9-year-old bulldog from Anoka, Minnesota, won the 2018 contest. Her owner, Megan Brainard, noted the dog had been rescued from a puppy mill. Her distinguishing characteristic was an extremely long tongue that protruded almost to the ground.

The World’s Ugliest Dog Contest is an annual event, which has a history of 30 years. One of its organizers stated that when it was originally held as a town party, but now it is a national and worldwide event.

For nearly 30 years, the World’s Ugliest Dog Contest has been a testament that the pedigree does not define the pet. Dogs of all breeds and sizes have warmed our hearts and filled our lives with unconditional love. This world-renowned event celebrates the imperfections that make all dogs special and unique.

The contest is a spice of life that will make the world more relaxed and beautiful. While fun and entertaining, the contest speaks to the importance of advocating for the adoration of all animals and the benefits of adopting. Many of the contestant dogs have been rescued from shelters and puppy mills, to find loving homes in the hands of those willing to adopt.
