Ashley Judd Is Helping An Abused Cockapoo Regain His Health

This story is very bittersweet and will most likely bring a few tears to your eyes. It’s about the tragic case of another innocent victim of severe animal abuse and how actress Ashley Judd Is Helping An Abused Cockapoo Regain His Health. The well known actress has a big heart and a lot of compassion. I thank her for her kindness and her efforts to help out in the case of poor little Walter, the poodle-cocker mix pup.

Walter’s story is tragic, and yet not all that unfamiliar. We hear stories like this far too often, unfortunately. He was starved at the hands of his previous owner and at almost half of his normal weight, he suffered being thrown from a car. It’s almost too horrible to imagine, but it does happen, folks. Some people have no morals and are quite sick and depraved, I’m afraid.

Here’s more from the website ecorazzi.com, who did an article about this story, which is ongoing as we speak. We don’t know if Walter, the cockapoo, is going to survive his ordeal.

Walter, the cockapoo needs your prayers for a through recovery

Actress Ashley Judd is personally involved in the rehabilitation of a severely abused cockapoo named Walter — and despite her efforts, it’s not clear yet whether he’s going to make it.

Walter was not only starved by his previous owner (the emaciated dog weighs only 11 pounds, about half of what he should, considering that he’s five), but he was also thrown out of the window of a moving car.

He was rescued by Tennessee-based organization Snooty Giggles, who partnered with the Animalia Health and Wellness for Animals clinic to try and save his life. And that’s where Judd stepped in.

The actress heard about Walter’s plight and contacted both organizations. She not only volunteered to foot his medical bills, but she also visits Walter every day, emotionally supporting his recovery. Still, it might not be enough — Walter’s condition is very fragile.

“We are doing everything we can to help Walter. Ashley has been a huge support,” says Snooty Giggles’ Shawn Aswad.

“It’s almost unbearable,” Judd says. ”It certainly defies individual and collective humanity to know that, not just Walter, but a lot of animals, are treated this way.”

Despite his ordeal, Walter has a very sweet temperament and enjoys being around people and other dogs. Judd hopes that she might eventually foster Walter, but it will be a long time coming — she says Walter’s recovery will be a “very long journey.” However, she also notes that he clearly has a strong will to live, something that certainly works in his favor.

This story really affected me very deeply about how Ashley Judd Is Helping An Abused Cockapoo Regain His Health, and about the deep neglect and painful abuse this little defenseless animal has suffered. I can’t stand hearing about these stories each and every day. I can’t avoid seeing 4 or 5 more stories about animal abuse daily, as I scour through the news and web stories to find things to write about in the poodle and poodle-mix world.

I want to personally thank Ashley Judd for her amazing good-hearted kindness and compassionate efforts to save this dog’s life. She will be blessed, as are the other volunteers at the shelter and the vet that are all doing their part.

Alfie, The Cocker-Poodle Mix, Was Named The Happiest Dog

Have your heard the latest news that Alfie, The Cocker-Poodle Mix, Was Named The Happiest Dog? Well, it is official! In Britain, anyway, Alfie the Cockapoo has been officially crowned the happiest pooch in all of the United Kingdom. It’s quite an honor for both himself and for his proud owners, Aimee and Dan Salt. If you haven’t already heard about this big win of a rather unique competition, here’s an excerpt from the heart-warming story of a lovable cockapoo named Alfie, The Cocker-Poodle Mix, Was Named The Happiest Dog.

He’s always got a smile on his face and now he’s certainly got something to grin about after he was named Britain’s Happiest Dog.

Alfie, the nine-month-old Cockapoo from Bristol, won over the judges with his broad grin and furiously wagging tale.

He beat dozens of other dogs to win the competition, which was organized by Penguin Books.

His owner Dan Salt, 30, from St George, Bristol, said: ‘He is a cross between a cocker spaniel and a poodle – and he is a very happy dog.

‘Alfie always looks like he is grinning – he even runs with a smile on his face. He loves going out for walks and chasing other dogs around.

‘He is also just as happy when he’s lying around at home.

‘Alfie is affectionate and does not bark or growl. I think if a burglar broke into our house he would probably go over and give him a cuddle.’

Cockapoos, also known as spoodles, can live for between 14 and 18 years and were first introduced in American in 1950.

They are popular because they have the loving personality of cocker spaniels but shed virtually no hair.

White-haired Alfie beat competition from 75 other canines around the country to be named ‘Britain’s Happiest Dog’.

I loved hearing about this and think it’s a great idea. Ultimately the final decision was based on the the photo of the dog that got the most cheers from the staff and as a result the final winner was Alfie, The Cocker-Poodle Mix, Was Named The Happiest Dog.

Poodle Mix Helps Children With Reading

Here’s an article with a heart-warming story of how a poodle mix helps children with reading at a local public library. This is a specially trained Labradoodle named Bentley and he is a reading companion that accompanies children in the Foley Public Library at specific days and times.

I thought that this story was of interest because it shows that not only can therapy dogs be an asset to children’s education, but what a great way to get kids to show up at a library and motivate them to sit down with a good book.   As a poodle lover myself, I thought that this was a great story about an excellent program geared towards children, so please read on about the poodle mix helps children with reading.

Bentley, a highly trained, certified “R.E.A.D. Program” Golden Labradoodle will soon join the Foley Public Library’s part time staff!  Thanks to the Reading Education Assistance Dogs® program, Bentley and his human, Lynda Folks, will be in the children’s area of the library waiting for YOU to come by and read! R.E.A.D. dogs are registered therapy animals who volunteer with their handler as a team, going to schools, libraries, and many other settings as reading companions for children.

I thought this was a great example of a creative way to incorporate a trained service dog into a children’s section of a library, making the experience of going to the library that much more enjoyable and exciting for these kids who get to meet Bentley, the poodle mix helps children with reading.

I learned more about the R.E.A.D. (which stands for Reading Education Assistance Dogs) program by checking out their website which tells all about the program.  Here’s what I discovered about this great program:

The mission of the R.E.A.D. program is to improve the literacy skills of children through the assistance of registered therapy teams as literacy mentors.

The Reading Education Assistance Dogs (R.E.A.D.) program improves children’s reading and communication skills by employing a powerful method: reading to a dog. But not just any dog. R.E.A.D. dogs are registered therapy animals who volunteer with their owner/handlers as a team, going to schools, libraries and many other settings as reading companions for children.

Today, thousands of registered R.E.A.D. teams work throughout the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, and beyond. R.E.A.D. is one of those ideas that, in the words of Bill Moyers, “pierces the mundane to arrive at the marvelous.”

Intermountain Therapy Animals, a nonprofit organization, launched R.E.A.D. in 1999 as the first comprehensive literacy program built around the appealing idea of reading to dogs, and the program has been spreading rapidly and happily ever since!

 

I can see why this would be a great part of any library and would be a terrific addition to any library.  I hope to see this program expanded and really enjoyed learning about how this poodle mix helps children with reading.
