He Was Left To Die Under A Log…Until He Was Sniffed Out By An Unlikely Angel
We came across the story of Roscoe through an image sharing site. A young woman named Lia, along with her boyfriend, rescued and saved the tiny kitten.
The story actually begins with Lia’s puppy Opie finding Roscoe in a field behind their apartment building. Poor Roscoe was found under a log and covered with maggots. Opie refused to leave the baby kitten, and before they knew it they were bringing him home.
As you can see from the photographs, Roscoe went from near death at only 2 days old to a healthy young cat. We commend his rescuers and owners for loving and caring for this beautiful creature back to optimal health. We also commend his best dog friend Opie for sniffing him out and never leaving his side. I’m sure they’ll be the best friends forever!

i think I love you.
Big Meeting! She rushes down the stairs in her newly purchased, perfectly accessorized, pale blue pants suit and open-toed sling back heels. She swings by the kitchen, throws her purse over one shoulder, grabs her travel mug—steaming hot, black coffee, for her morning jolt. Heading…
I ABSOLUTELY adore this. It’s extremely descriptive and really captures the hectic feelings of rushing around trying to get off to an okay start. I often feel overwhelmed like this in the morning before class. I’m not a morning person whatsoever, and if I had my way I would start my day at the crack of noon. You use, as my 8th grade grammar teacher would say, “75 cent adjectives” and you use them well. I really enjoyed reading this and really felt urgency while doing so. I am always attracted to writers who’s words push you into the shoes of the protagonist.
Why Do Dogs Become Aggressive?
My five year old German Shepherd has suddenly become aggressive for unexplained reasons. He will act completely normal one second, then turn vicious the next. A usually playful, loving dog begins snarling and snapping at his family. Where did this behavior suddenly come from? In search of answers, I discovered different explanations for sudden behavioral changes. The main results I came upon was pain, illness, new behavioral issues and seizures. Things began to make more sense. My dog has been experiencing seizures for about a year now. The worst part is seeing how frightened he is when it happens because he does not understand what is happening, and that we cannot make it stop. Hopefully, his upcoming vet appointment will shed light on what we can do about this problem. The solution could be as simple as placing him on a medication for correcting brain chemistry. Unfortunately, dogs who become a threat need to have this serious problem fixed, or unwanted measures may have to be taken for protection of the family and others. -Hoping for the best.

These essays on different subjects that you’ve been writing remind me, a bit, of the Swiss modernist Robert Walser (I mentioned him to somebody else in the class as well). Here’s a link to some of his work. http://www.theparisreview.org/fiction/6229/from-the-essays-of-fritz-kocher-robert-walser
That sounds so terrifying. I had a shepard mix for a long time, she was a really wonderful dog up until her last day on Earth. They are great family dogs, and truly man’s best friend. Having worked at an animal hospital, unfortunately behavorial issues are common, especially in ill animals. The seizures seem very plausible as a cause for his unusual change of behavior, but the best thing to do is take him to a vet like you mentioned you will be. I can really sense your sadness and difficulty understanding why your friend has changed. It comes through in your writing and essays, and that’s something to be admired. Your writing is very 3 dimensional, as opposed to being flat. You are able to say something direct while also getting your feelings to come through in it.
