At some countries, especially mine – Vietnam, there is still prejudge that dogs and cats are dirty and can harmful to babies. Some parents even abandon their dogs/cats when wives get pregnant. Even worse, they sell pitiful animals to meat market. Luckily, in recent years, there are more and more animal lovers in our countries which makes these sad stories are not too common compared to before. Still, we have a long way to go to change people, especially the old’s mindset. Let’s share and make all the world understand that, cats and dogs are our best friends and therefore, our babies’ best friends too.
In St. Petersburg, Florida, a woman and a dog who are both survivors of domestic violence have formed a loving bond and found comfort in each other.
In 2012, Melissa Dohme was stabbed 32 times by her ex-boyfriend. Most of the stab wounds were on her face.
On the other hand, Khalessi is a severly abused Pit Bull who was likely used as a bait dog. And because of that, Khalessi lost half of her face.
The two got to meet each other when they were brought together by photographer Lisa Otto for a special photo shoot.
Watch the video below for the full story!
Aren’t they beautiful?
Melissa Dohme told ABC News, “You can’t keep us down, and we won’t be silenced.” These two are giving hope to domestic abuse victims everywhere.

Howl of a Dog is a small nonprofit dog rescue organization. Saving abandoned, stray, and abused dogs is something the folks there are quite accustomed to. Yet, when they found this tiny puppy abandoned on the sidewalk, they could hardly believe how small he was.
The pup they renamed Joy weighed only 160 grams. He was so small, they came to the conclusion that he must have been left by his mother on the day he was born. They marked the day they rescued Joy as his birthday, since he was so young at the time. When something is so small and so precious, the outcome can be a little unpredictable. Thanks to Howl of a Dog, little Joy is progressing nicely.
Watch as he blossoms from a baby into a happy, healthy dog over the course of 60 days. I love watching the time-lapse growth of animals like Joy, and even Keelo and Koda. Our babies, human and animal alike, tend to grow up so quickly; these time-lapse videos can remind us of each different wonderful stage in our little one’s life.
At first he’s hardly able to move, but when nourished, Joy becomes full of life. He’s ready to play, jump, bounce, and run around, now that he’s in a loving environment.
Please SHARE Joy’s story to show what a difference 60 days and a little love make in a dog’s life!

When this mother was eager to have her baby say “mama” to her, the dog stood very close by anxiously awaiting a bite of food.
This smart dog listens very carefully. While the baby says nothing, the dog starts chiming in his two cents and actually mumbling “Mama” to answer! How quick-learner he is and how hard he tries for a bite of pasta! How can “Mama” do anything but feed him? It looks like the baby cheers for him too! Super!
