Oh, sweet Powers that Be in a bucket. With lobster thermidor aux crevettes with a mornay sauce, garnished with truffle paté, brandy and a fried egg on top and Spam.

That’s me ruined for the evening.

STRAY PIT BULL MIX CARRIES INJURED FRIEND AROUND IN HER MOUTH - "It’s not every day we get to see such devotion between two special dogs like this…"

An animal control officer in Savannah, Georgia, discovered a Pit Bull mix named Joanie carrying an injured Chihuahua named Chachi around on the streets. Chachi had a serious eye injury and Joanie would periodically put Chachi down and lick the wound. Veterinarians later had to remove Chachi’s eye. The dogs are under supervision of the Savannah Chatham Animal Control shelter, but the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department has indicated that they will be adopted as a pair by a family in Florida.

The dogs were found roaming a Savannah neighborhood on Thursday, July 17.

"Jonie," a large, white lab-Pit Bull mix was walking around with her injured Chihuahua pal "Chachi" in her mouth.

Jonie would stop occasionally to lick Chachi’s injured and swollen eye.

"Clearly, Chachi appreciated the attention," said a post on the Savannah-Chatham Police Department’s Facebook page.

Animal control officers caught the pair and took them to the shelter where the veterinary staff treated little Chachi.

The Chihuahua’s ruptured eye was too damaged to save, so veterinarians removed it.

On Tuesday, Jonie was allowed to visit Chachi. The shelter’s staff were treated to an emotional reunion, complete with licking, whining and cuddling.

"It’s not every day we get to see such devotion between two special dogs like this," said Animal Control Officer Christina Sutherin.

Joanie did her best to protect Chachi, and now they will finally have a chance at a new life together. Click here for the full story. (Photos from the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department Facebook page)


photos by jeff cremer of orange julia and sulfur yellow butterflies drinking the salty tears of a tracajá turtle in the peruvian amazon. sodium is a scarce resource in the western amazon, where there is little mineral content to rain water, so the butterflies have learned to get it where they can. luckily for the butterflies, the turtles don’t much mind, despite deriving no reciprocal benefit themselves.
