Today, the 2 brown dawgs would like to share their blog.
It has been a week since the earthquake and tsunami changed Japan forever.
The people of Japan have endured so much suffering and so have their pets.
We read a good news story about two dogs who were left tied in a yard as the tsunami raced toward their home and their owners had to flee leaving them behind. Miraculously they survived and they were reunited with their owners.
Two Dogs Defy the Wave
Then we read the story and saw the video of a dog protecting his injured canine companion. Both dogs have now been rescued, the injured dog is in an animal clinic and the other is safe in a shelter. Time will tell if they are reunited with their owners.

We also read about the search and rescue dogs who tirelessly search for survivors among the rubble. Many of these dogs are rescues themselves.
They are the real heroes of the canine world.

If you would like to help these dogs and others in Japan, the AKC CAR Canine Support & Relief Fund is accepting donations for disaster relief in Japan.
From the AKC Website:
In light of the recent earthquake and tsunami in Japan, many fanciers and concerned dog owners have asked us how they can help the companion animal victims of these tragedies.
If you are interested in offering your assistance, we encourage contributions to our AKC Companion Animal Recovery Canine Support and Relief Fund. Started in the wake of 9/11, the fund has donated more than $3 million to search and rescue teams and for companion animal relief during natural disasters such as Hurricane Katrina.
Funds will be donated to appropriate organizations in support of search and rescue dogs’ efforts to find survivors and to aid in disaster relief for Japan’s displaced companion animals.
Click here to make a donation and please note that it is on behalf of “Japan.”
Thank you for keeping the Japanese people and their pets in your thoughts.
I am sure any little bit will help.
Hug your dawgs and count your blessings because you just never know.
