Friendly Friday

Hi everybuddy!

I’m so excited cuz today’s the first day I’m pawticipating in Pet Blog United’s “Friendly Friday”!

Screaming Mimi

It’s super easy to join in. All you have to do is put the badge in your bloggie and then introduce everybuddy to one of your furends. How simple is that?

Today I’d like to introduce you to my furend, Jimmy.

As you prolly guessed by looking at his picture, Jimmy had a pretty hard start in his life. You see, some very, very bad “thing” (we can’t really call them a human cuz, well, they’re not) cut off sweet Jimmy’s nose and then dumped him in somebuddy’s yard. Most luckily, the pawson that found him was very nice and got Jimmy some help right away. (Click here to see the news story about when Jimmy was first found.) A lot of kind peoples helped Jimmy get better and now he’s living with his Most Wonderful fostermommy.

Now, you might think that Jimmy would feel sorry for himself. Or that he would be mad at peoples because of everything he’s been through. But no, not Jimmy. As you can prolly tell from that picture above, he is SO happy to be alive and to be given a second chance. And he lets everybuddy he meets know about it.

Jimmy’s one-in-a-million, that’s for sure. He inspires me and I think if you read his bloggie, you’ll be inspired, too!

From mom: Just a word of warning. There are some pictures in Jimmy’s header that are tough to look at. But I hope you won’t let that deter you from visiting him. I think they’re important because they help us understand that despite what Jimmy has endured, he has not only survived – he has THRIVED. We can all learn so much from him.

  10. Thank you so much for writing about Jimmy. As a BARCS volunteer and pit bull advocate I have been following his case since the very beginning. The problem of animal abuse, especially pit bulls, in Baltimore is very real and very serious. Thank you to Homeward Bound Animal Rescue for taking him in [] and to BARCS and its Franky Fund [] for all it does for the animals in Baltimore.

    • We are so proud to be able to write about such a Most Remarkable dog. Words can’t even explain how grateful we are to everybuddy who came together to save this sweet boy.

  11. Jimmy seems to be a very happy boy. We can tell from the sparkle in his eye.
    We are so happy that Jimmy got to live and is safe now.
    God bless all that helped him get to where he is today.
    Love Ruby & Penny

    Thanks for talking about Jimmy and for being such a great animal advocate.

    Dogs amaze me in the adversities they are able to overcome. All it takes is a little time and understanding.

  14. Oh my goodness Mayzie, we will certainly be visiting Jimmy and reading his blog. Thank you so much for introducing us.
    Our mum is muttering lots of things we don’t understand about Jimmy’s past but you know us dogs just live in the now.
    We are happy things are good now.
    love and kisses

    ps thank you so much for joining in with our singing – we find humans don’t really appreciate our singing…….well let’s face it they are tone deaf!

  15. We have been reading about Jimmy, and it’s so amazing to see that even though he’s been through so much, he is still so happy and trusting of people. It’s great you’re making people more aware!

  24. Oh that is so wonderful that Jimmy found such a good home, poor dog. It is just awful what some people do to animals. They should be in jail. Thanks for this story. Even though he was mistreated, at least he ended up in a great home. Have a great week end.

  33. oh this made the happy tears flow for sures

    the pittie pack

  34. We’re on our way to Jimmy’s blog. He is a stalwart soul and we hope he’s blessed with love and care for every second that’s left in what we hope will be a long life.

    If Mama ruled the world, those who abuse animals would be punished by receiving EXACTLY the same treatment they inflicted on the animal. So here’s hoping that sociopath is doing 30 – life somewhere, so he can’t hurt any more defenseless animals – or move on to abusing children.
