Lost German Shepherd Turns Up 600 Miles Away From Home

001671398

About two weeks before Christmas, Deacon, an 85-lb German shepherd, went missing from his family home in rural Stuart, Va.
During the first couple of days, Pamela Holt, her husband Keith, and their daughter Brooklyn, 3, weren’t terribly worried because they figured their nearly two-year-old pet was running in the fields behind their home.

“We have a lot of land and thought Deacon might be enjoying the outdoors,” Holt, who works as a teller for SunTrust bank, “But we soon got worried and called the area dog warden, the pound and the sheriff’s office. After two weeks, we gave up, fearing he had died or was stolen.”Deacon, a gift from Holt to her husband Keith, a teacher and football coach, had become a beloved family member, and everyone was upset. But a curious call in late February from a man in Deland, Fla., changed everything.

“A male voice on the other end said he thought he may have Deacon,” Holt “I was angry at first and thought he was a prankster trying to play a joke on us … I nearly hung up on him.”The man, who said he was from Animal Control in Deland, told Holt he was looking at her dog. Holt said she thought Deacon was dead. But when he asked her if the dog’s name was Bruno, Holt went crazy with joy.

Lily Allen's Pup Is Roughed Up By Other Dogs

That had to hurt! Singer Lily Allen posted a picture of her little pooch Mabel on Twitter yesterday, showing the pup sporting some bright pink bandages. “Mabel got beaten up by bigger dogs,” Allen wrote. “She went to [the] doggy hospital, but she’s ok.”

Though the British songstress didn’t expand on her story, she was flooded with well-wishes from Twitter fans.

This isn’t the first time Allen’s had puppy troubles — in late 2006, her pooch Maggie May went missing in London, but was found just a little worse for wear about a week later.

White Lion Cub Stands Out at South African Sanctuary

001665566

A 2-week-old lion cub in South Africa has fleece as white as snow — not to mention unparalleled cuteness! Born to mom Sahara and dad Alex, the toothless little one, named Lilly, is currently growing up at the Mystic Monkeys & Feathers Wildlife Park near the city of Pretoria, where she greets visitors daily.

Just one of a handful of white lions found around the world, Lilly is a rare mutation of the common African breed. Though she’s not albino — her eyes and skin have normal pigmentation — white lions like her have a hard time surviving in the wild because they don’t blend into the scenery.Luckily for Lilly, she doesn’t have to worry about any outside threats. Instead, she’s living the life in her sanctuary, reportedly sleeping in her keeper’s bed at night and drinking 10 bottles of kitten milk each day. Sign us up!
