NEWKIRIK, OK – In case you need reassurance that everlasting love really does exist, this video of a couple at their 50th anniversary party will certainly help. Back in the 1960’s, Harvey and Mildred Wosika met while she was working at his brother’s café. The couple hit it off and they were married on August…

Dog lover Jan Brown (aka Knitty Jan) has spent more than 4,000 hours knitting cosy hats, jumpers and snoods for homeless greyhounds.

Fifty-two-year-old mum Jan from Seaburn in Sunderland, started making her cheery knits five years ago and has now hand-knitted over 300 jumpers for abandoned dogs.

Each one is made with love and can take her up to 20 hours to complete.

She started knitting her woolly hats, scarves and jumpers for Greyhound Rescue Northeast, a small family-run rescue centre based in Tyne & Wear, in 2008. They rescue retired greyhounds, whippets and the odd lurcher and find them new homes.

To keep up with demand, Jan quit her job in 2012 and started knitting full-time. She now sells her knits to dog owners around the world, via her Knitted With Love website, with all profits going towards supplying jumpers to rescue centres across the UK, free of charge.

Kerry Elliman from the Birmingham Greyhounds Protection says her help is invaluable: ‘Jan’s been absolutely amazing for us – she’s saved us a lot of money that we need to spend on vet bills for our greyhounds.’

At Christmas, Jan ramps up the festive knits, making Father Christmas outfits, woolly antlers and Christmas hats for the pups.

‘I can’t think of anything I would rather do than knit woolly clothing for dogs,’ Jan says. ‘I have spent over 4,000 hours knitting but it’s all worthwhile when I see them sporting their new jumpers and hats.

PIC FROM CATERS NEWS – (PICTURED: Australian customer Donna Matthews with her pets and jumpers ) – Meet the mum who spends more than 4,000 hours knitting Christmassy jumpers for abandoned dogs. Jan Brown, 52, from Seaburn, Sunderland, has hand-knitted more than 300 of her festive designs to give a warm woolly gift to homeless greyhounds at Christmas. Each jumper can take the up to 20 hours to complete and are sent to pet rescue centres across the country. Since starting five years ago she has made Father Christmas outfits, antlers to even woolly hats, scarves and snoods for dogs as well as reconditioning old blankets into coats. SEE CATERS COPY.

‘It’s really sweet seeing them in their festive Christmas jumpers and it’s giving much needed help to the rescue centres,’ she adds, explaining: ‘Greyhounds have very thin fur so they really feel the cold during the winter so my gifts help keep them warm during walks.

‘There are so many dogs that won’t be rehomed this Christmas so for many of them it’s the only gift they will get.’

EINSTEIN MADE WITH OVER A THOUSAND PIECES OF BURNT TOAST

Animal welfare officer investigating an abused donkey discover it is actually a model

 This fake donkey has made a fool of some animal welfare investigators
Up close it’s obvious, but from a distance… (Picture: Scottish SPCA/PA Wire)

Animal welfare officers were called in to deal with a donkey who was allegedly being neglected recently.

However when they arrived to deal with the poor animal they discovered exactly why it had been standing outside in the rain for several weeks.

It was a life-size model.

Like a scene from a bad 90s sitcom, the fake donkey was actually a nativity scene prop and is kept in the garden of Reverend Georgie Baxendale when not performing.

The Scottish SPCA say they don’t know if the call was made as a prank or by a well-meaning but short-sighted walker.

Senior inspector Bill Little said: ‘When I arrived, the owner asked me if I wanted a laugh and when she showed me the ornamental donkey it certainly gave me a chuckle.

‘The donkey is made of fibreglass and goes by the name Joshua.’

The confusion didn’t bother Rev Baxendale, who called it the ‘funniest thing I’ve ever heard in my life’.

‘I used to have two donkeys and bought Joshua as a reminder,’ she added.

Despite the mix up, Mr Little said it is always ‘better to be safe than sorry and we’d encourage anyone with concerns about an animal to call our helpline on 03000 999 999′.

This isn’t the first time the Scottish SPCA have been fooled by model animals.

An officer in Aberdeen was called to a report of owl neglect a couple of years ago, but when he arrived he discovered the distressed bird was in fact a plastic garden water feature.

Paying for Petting Time in Japan’s Cat Cafes

Video:
In Osaka, Japan, where many apartment dwellers aren’t allowed to keep pets, cat fanciers spend time with their favorite felines at the Cats’ Time Cafe

You never have to drink alone again, because now you can drink with your cats. At least in Japan you can, because a Japanese company called B&H Lifes has begun selling wine made specifically for cats.

This special feline libation is called “Nyan Nyan Nouveau.” As Kotaku reports, “nyan nyan” is the Japanese equivalent of “meow meow.” (Oh hey, remember Nyan Cat?) This cat wine doesn’t really contain any alcohol, but it does contain juice made from Cabernet grapes, along with catnip. So just accept it. It’s wine. For cats.

Nyan Nyan Nouveau costs 399 yen (or $4) for a bottle, and the company is only producing a thousand of them, so you should probably act fast.

A Bulldog Love Story

A Bulldog Love Story

While planning his family holiday, Kai – the bulldog´s dad couldn’t stand the thought of leaving his bulldog behind. Watch the surprise he prepared for the bulldog at his first kennel visit.

This is Igor, a bulldog from Lillestrøm, Norway

His family had to leave him in a kennel for their vacation to Thailand

However, his dad Kai wanted to make sure he’d feel at home, so he prepared a surprise

Igor had no idea what was waiting for him…

They recreated their living room! In the kennel!

Here’s a side by side comparison between the living room and the kennel

Igor looked happy…

And so did his family!

He even got to make some new friends at the kennel, too

Suddenly, things didn’t seem all that bad anymore

What a caring family! Here’s their video:
