They Have To Say Goobye To Their Baby Girl.. But What The Dogs Did Will Touch Your Heart Even More..

A family’s two basset hounds refused to leave a dying child’s side after doctor’s informed her parents the devastating news that she wouldn’t survive.

“It was really nice,” mom Mary Hall of Deluth, Minnesota, told ABC News. “It brought us a lot of comfort to have them [there]. But by the end of the first day, you could see they were stressed out and depressed. Normally, they’re very happy-go-lucky. We knew they could sense there was something wrong.”

Nora Hall, 5 months old, died May 2 after suffering a stroke April 6 and spending three weeks in the hospital.

The stroke had affected both sides of her brain, causing severe damage, her mother said.

The family dogs, 8-year-old Grumpy and Gracie, fell in love with Nora as soon as she arrived from the hospital, Hall said.

“Gracie, especially, took on the role as second mother,” she said. “Whenever Nora would cry, Gracie would run to see what was wrong. She was always, always by Nora and kissing her and making sure she was OK.”

As Nora’s days were sadly numbered, Children’s Hospital in Minneapolis asked Mary and John Hall whether they had any final wishes for their daughter.

“I asked, ‘If you could let us have our dogs [at the hospital], we’d really appreciate that,’” Hall recalled. “I didn’t want to go home and have them sniffing around for her and not knowing where she went. They lowered the bed so the dogs could lay with her and Gracie ran up and licked her [Nora].”

Hall said she is grateful for the hospital honoring the special exception of having Nora, Gracie and Grumpy together one last time.

The family snapped photos of the touching goodbyes and posted them on Facebook.

“She was just a really happy baby,” Hall said. “Before we went into the hospital, she’d just start laughing. She was happy all the time.”

Family’s Pit Bull Dies While Protecting Her Family From Deadly Attack

In Fort Meyers, Florida a cherished family pit bull pet died while protecting her family from an ex-boyfriend’s deadly rage, reports

When Walter Williams, 48 broke into the home of Lisa Potts, the two began to argue. Williams struck Lisa and then pulled out a knife. That’s when Lucy, the pit bull heard the commotion from another room, ran in and jumped Williams.

“Lucy lunged at him and once she lunged at him he caught her in the neck, and once he caught her in the neck, she just went to biting him,” stated Lisa.

Lucy lost a lot of blood. That’s when Lisa’s three sons tackled Williams and held him down on the ground until authorities arrived.

Rodrick Gibbons was Lucy’s owner; he had raised the six-year-old dog since she was just a puppy.”I had her since she was a baby, raised her. She is family. She was everything to me,” said Gibbons to

The family comforted Lucy until Animal Control arrived – continually praising her for being a good dog and a hero.

Sadly Lucy died the next day. According to the family, had Lucy not interfered, Williams would have stabbed everyone. Rest in peace Lucy. You are a hero.

Two dogs refuse to be separated after owner dumps them in shelter!

No human would want to be separated from his or her best friend. The mere thought of being so far apart is enough to make anyone break down.

Dogs are the same way — not just with their owners, but with other pups they develop close friendships with. Two dogs, Chewy and CC, were living in the same home before their owner put them up for adoption at the shelter.

Of course, it may have been easier for the shelter they were placed in to adopt them out separately, to different families.

But the Animal Rescue League of Iowa decided to make them “bundle buddies,” meaning that if a person or family wanted to have one, they would have to bring the other into their home as well.


It only took a few months for the cuddling duo to find their forever home; and they were able to stay together, joined by two other dogs and even a pig!

They’re having a blast adjusting to their new environment and family.


Chewy and CC are two dogs who happen to be the best of friends. They are often seen cuddling together; despite the discrepancy in their sizes.

The Animal Rescue League of Iowa had one stipulation: if you wanted to adopt one, you had to bring the other one home too. They would not be separated under any circumstance.


Luckily, the two pups were able to find their forever home within just a few months!

They can now cuddle together for as long as they please.


Now they have new friends: two humans, two other dogs, and even a pig!

Please SHARE if you’re ecstatic that these two adorable pups were able to find a loving home together!


Animal services euthanizes dogs that killed 4-year-old boy

The family dogs who killed a 4-year-old boy in his backyard Friday were euthanized by animal services.

Jacob Brooks was killed Friday night at his home on the 9100 block of Morelia Road near North Loop Drive after he was left in an enclosed trampoline in the backyard.
Officials said the three shepherd mixes and one pit bull were euthanized later that evening.

Spoke with a witness early Friday morning about the attack.
Albert Hernandez said he was playing basketball when he heard a woman crying and saying her son ran away.
He didn’t think the child would get far, so he checked the backyard, where he confronted the dogs.

“So I jumped over the gate, and that’s when I found the dogs in one corner. The far left of the house,” Hernandez said. “I got closer and closer, and that’s when they realized (the dogs were) coming. The first (dog) attacked me, which was the biggest one … I had to hit it in the face, and that’s when it ran.”

No charges are expected to be filed.
