Police officers work every single day to protect us and keep us safe. A lot of times this means they put their own lives in danger for the safety of others, and that doesn’t just mean for people, but for animals too. Detective Mike Lynes took part in a bust, but it wasn’t until he went into the bathroom of the home did he find something out of the ordinary–that he wouldn’t soon forget.
There, alone and shaking, was a tiny puppy that no one had thought to take with them. So, back to the police station she went where she fit right in. But, although they wanted to keep her, they were forced to take her to animal control to see if anyone would claim her.
But Detective Lynes couldn’t forget about the little puppy that was all alone and afraid. He knew in his heart that she needed him just as much as he needed her, after they formed an unspoken bond on that first meeting. As soon as the mandatory hold time passed and no one came in to claim her, Detective Lynes rushed down to the Animal Control in West Valley City, Utah to claim the puppy who stole his heart.
The Lynes family named the little girl “Daisy” and gave her a place to call home and a family that would never abandon her ever again.
Happy as can be in her new home:
When she’s not at home being loved, she spends her days with her favorite human, Detective Lynes, teaching kids about the dangers of drug abuse!
Although she had a rough start at life, and no one will ever truly know what she lived through, the Lynes family is making sure that this sweet pup will never feel alone again. Share this heartwarming story with your friends who love dogs–just like you!
Living in the small village of Portree, which is located on the Scottish Island of Skye, Jax is know for his important job in a hole-in-the-wall post office that’s managed by his human, Ray Chandler.
You see, the happy-go-lucky dog has a very specific role: he’s the post office’s Official Stamp Licker! He even has his very own sign:
“Jax absolutely loves it,” Chandler said in a story by The Dodo. “He’ll actually lick your stamps.”
Every day, patrons look forward to seeing the pup, who happily greets them and helps them with their parcels. In fact, he’s so enthusiastic about his position, he sometimes licks stamps a little too hard – and accidentally swallows them!
According Chandler, this occasional blunder means that stamp-licking services are offered at the “customer’s risk.” But most people are willing to overlook any of the eager dog’s honest mistakes… after all, he just wants to help! And despite his silly snafus, the social pooch truly excels in the customer service department.
“He’s great to have around, because he becomes the focal point,” Chandler said in the story. “In Britain, everyone tends to talk about the weather, but in the office, people want to talk about Jax. Some people come in just to say hello, or to bring him a treat; others want to give him hugs. He has become quite a character.”
In addition to accompanying his dad to work every day, Jax enjoys lots of outdoor time, including swimming and walks with his parents. After all, as Chandler explained to The Dodo, “He’s part of our family.”
If there were more canine employees at post offices, we may be more likely to turn off the computer and mail a letter once in awhile!
