GEORGE THE GOLDFISH has life-saving surgery! Amazing story that you must read!






Fish, house plants and birds scare me.  No, not the actual fish, house plants or birds, but the TAKING CARE OF the fish, house plants and birds that terrifies me.  I am horrible with them.  After I won my first goldfish at the OLM Festival ping pong ball toss when I was 7, I tried my best to be a good keeper.  I read all the books and tended to him carefully, but he passed 3 weeks later.

I was horrified to see him dead in the bowl.  My mother unceremoniously did away with him.  Ugh.

I pretty much suck at house plants, too.  I’ve never tried birds and I’m not willing after my horrid attempts at fishery and horticulture.

So, this amazing story of goldfish surgery had me mesmerized!

*ACTUALLY, the most endearing part of this story to me was that this tumor had effected George’s ability to swim properly and the other fish in the pond were bullying him… after the surgery, the bullying stopped!

You can read the original story here and here!

This is a shelter dog… I’m not sure she is happy with her tutu.

I know the llama looks really happy but I doubt he was… but I still think the pure intent of this image is funny, for sure.

OMG. This is so strange for so many reasons… but the look on the pug’s face is priceless!

I found this story online… two surfers in Australia rescued this Wallaby who was trapped out in the ocean. They swam out to him and put him in a jet ski jacket and then floated him to shore. Yay for the humans!!  (I love the expression of the Wallaby!)
