GoD and DoG

When God had made the earth and sky,
The flowers and the trees,
He then made all the animals,
The fish, the birds and bees.

And when at last He’d finished,
Not one was quite the same,
God said, “I’ll walk this earth of mine,
And give each one a name.”

And so He travelled far and wide,
And everywhere He went,
A little creature followed Him,
Until its strength was spent.

When all were named upon the earth,
And in the sky and sea,
The little creature said, “Dear Lord,
There’s not one left for me.”

Kindly the Father said to him,
“I’ve left you to the end,
I’ve turned my own name back to front,
And call you DOG, my friend.

The Story Of Camberley Kate: A Dog Rescuer Extraordinaire

CAMBERLEY KATE AND HER MANY RESCUES

Kate Ward’s nickname “Camberley Kate” is said to have been given to her by historian Sir Arthur Bryant in his book “The Lion and the Unicorn”. It became the title by which she became known to everyone.

Kate’s early history is somewhat hazy – When interviewed she stated that she was born in Middlesbrough on June 13th 1895, and remained proud of her Yorkshire roots. Orphaned before she was ten, she was brought up by an aunt in a strict religious atmosphere. As a young girl she went into service, in Yorkshire and eventually found her way to Camberley. In 1943 Kate bought a cottage in Yorktown, and soon afterwards took in her first stray, a dog which had been about to be put down due to lameness.

As word grew, the number of dogs in her cottage increased – some being tied to her door, some left in carrier bags, others brought in by the police or other agencies. At the end of her life she estimated that she had looked after more than 600 dogs and local vet Geoffrey Craddock, a great admirer of Kate work testified that they were well looked after. An entry in the 1957 directory FOR Camberley reads “Ward K 218 London Road., Cam., Dogs Home”. In 1976 she stated that she had 34 dogs, although by 1977 she had cut this down to 19, as she had been told to go easier at the age of 82! The growth of other dog rescue centres helped in this regard. She also had at least one cat.


Kate and her olive-green painted hand cart, labelled STRAY DOGS, was a familiar sight locally as she pushed it from Yorktown to Camberley each day, through the town centre and up to Barossa Common, on a route suggested by the police. Some of the dogs were allowed to ride in the cart, others were attached to it with lengths of string, and occasionally a favoured few ran loose alongside. Inside the cart, there was usually some meat for the dogs and a shovel to clean any mess away. The dogs were controlled with the help of a whistle. Locals became used to the sight of Kate pushing her cart along the busy London Road although it never ceased to amaze outsiders.

As a local celebrity Kate and her dogs were much photographed, a situation she tolerated as long as the photographer gave a donation for the upkeep of the animals. She also sold her own photographic postcards, and gave short shrift to those who tried to take their own pictures. Generous supporters gave money to assist her work and some even left bequests. She was scrupulous that this money should be used only for its intended purpose: the dogs had their own bank account, administered by 2 trustees. She left money in trust for the few dogs left at her death.

If you gave her some money, she would INSIST you take a photo. That way she could not be accused of begging.


A diminutive figure with her shock of white hair and her beret, Kate defended herself and her work passionately against her critics, such as those who wanted her out of the town centre or who regarded the dogs as dangerous or a health or traffic hazard. On one occasion she rammed a new car which was blocking her way. She also had a number of disputes with the authorities. These clashes were often recorded in the columns of the press. However she won the backing of the local police for her work in taking abandoned dogs in off the streets.

In 21 August 1969 Kate was in the Camberley News fighting plans to introduce a bye law making it illegal for dogs to be out without a lead. This followed complains from residents of new housing estates, and concerns about road accidents caused by stray dogs. In her customary forthright fashion she condemned “The Council is nothing more than a collection of dog-haters. I think this will be rotten. It means that dogs will be chained up all day”. A proposal to ban dogs from the new precinct in Camberley also met with a terse response, particularly since she was in the habit of shopping at Sainsbury’s and leaving some of the dogs tied up outside. When protests about the local drag-hounds running out of control when being exercised attracted her support Kate, in typical fashion, addressed her complaint directly to the King. The Royal family continued to be a favourite route for correspondence. When a local schoolteacher complained that she had seen her beat her dogs with a stick, Kate immediately wrote in protest to the Queen. This was not their first encounter – when Princess Elizabeth got married one of the dogs sent a present of a dog lead.


As these anecdotes show, Kate was an excellent publicist. A local policemen recalled that occasionally a dog would get loose and be brought to the dog pound. If the Police Station was empty she would pay the fine quietly and readily, but if there was an audience she would protest vocally!

Following a series of strokes old age and ill-health forced her to leave her cottage and her remaining seven dogs were put into kennels. Her last weeks were spent at Kingsclear residential home and she died on 4th August 1979. Her funeral was at St Michael’s, Yorktown.

Despite her avowed dislike of people, Baptist Minister the Rev Chris Russell who officiated at her funeral, remembers her private generosity to those in need. This aspect of her life she kept anonymous, passing on her donations through third parties.

After her death, Camberley vet Geoffrey Craddock was quoted in the Camberley News as saying “Camberley has lost its most celebrated and best known character. She will be greatly missed by those of us who had the rare privilege of knowing her”.


During her lifetime, Kate’s fame spread far and wide. She featured In the national press and on television programmes such as “Nationwide” and “Tonight”. was featured on NBC in the United States and her story appeared in publications across Europe from France to Rumania. She also received the ultimate accolade of a feature in “Time” Magazine, and was photographed by Lord Snowdon. To her surprise, in 1967 she received an award from the magazine “Dog’s Life” for her work. In answer to the inevitable question, why she did it? her invariable reply was that she preferred dogs to humans.


Her home at 218 London Road was just a few doors along from the former Lamb pub, near the present Meadows roundabout, but Is no longer standing. The Katherine Court retirement flats were named after her at the suggestion of a local resident in 2000.

There are so many great lessons we can learn from the life of Kate Ward, both as responsible dog owners, human beings, and as pet rescue charities. Most of all Kate recognized the value of a photograph and how it could be used for the positive influence of others, to bring light to a cause, and to help raise money.

🌈 A Man And A Dog And Heaven

A man and his dog were walking along a road. The man was enjoying the scenery, when it suddenly occurred to him that he was dead.

A Man And A Dog And Heaven

He remembered dying, and that the dog walking beside him had been dead for years. He wondered where the road was leading them.

After a while, they came to a high, white stone wall along one side of the road. It looked like fine marble. At the top of a long hill, it was broken by a tall arch that glowed in the sunlight.

When he was standing before it he saw a magnificent gate in the arch that looked like mother-of-pearl, and the street that led to the gate looked like pure gold. He and the dog walked toward the gate, and as he got closer, he saw a man at a desk to one side.

When he was close enough, he called out, ‘Excuse me, where are we?’

‘This is Heaven, sir,’ the man answered.

Would you happen to have some water?’ the man asked.

Of course, sir. Come right in, and I’ll have some ice water brought right up’.

The man gestured, and the gate began to open.

‘Can my friend,’ gesturing toward his dog, ‘come in, too?’ the traveler asked.

‘I’m sorry, sir, but we don’t accept pets.’

The man thought a moment and then turned back toward the road and continued the way he had been going with his dog.

After another long walk, and at the top of another long hill, he came to a dirt road leading through a farm gate that looked as if it had never been closed. There was no fence. As he approached the gate, he saw a man inside, leaning against a tree and reading a book.

‘Excuse me!’ he called to the man. ‘Do you have any water?’

‘Yeah, sure, there’s a pump over there, come on in..’

‘How about my friend here?’ the traveller gestured to the dog.

There should be a bowl by the pump.’

They went through the gate, and sure enough, there was an old-fashioned hand pump with a bowl beside it.

The traveller filled the water bowl and took a long drink himself, then he gave some to the dog.

When they were full, he and the dog walked back toward the man who was standing by the tree.

‘What do you call this place?’ the traveler asked.

This is Heaven,’ he answered.

‘Well, that’s confusing,’ the traveler said. ‘The man down the road said that was Heaven, too.’

‘Oh, you mean the place with the gold street and pearly gates? Nope. That’s hell.’

‘Doesn’t it make you mad for them to use your name like that?’

‘No, we’re just happy that they screen out the folks who would leave their best friends behind!!

92-Year-Old Retired Vet Dedicates His Life To Making Wheelchairs For Disabled Dogs

DR LINCOLN PARKES AND ONE OF THE DOGS HE HAS HELPED MOBILISE

Dr. Lincoln Parkes has lived a long life and he’s dedicated much of that life to caring for animals in need.

Lincoln has worked as a veterinarian for many years and has helped countless animals when they needed it most.

Now, at 92, Lincoln is retired, but he’s chosen to spend his retirement doing what he loves most.

Even though Lincoln has hung up his white coat, his love and compassion for animals live on, and Lincoln is happy to be able to spend his golden years focusing on his passion.

DR PARKES AND A PATIENT

Lincoln has founded a company called K-9 Carts, which produces wheelchairs for disabled dogs.

Lincoln spends his days designing specially carts for animals in need, and nothing makes him happier than seeing a pup light up with happiness after being fitted with a new wheelchair.

Now that he’s retired, Lincoln can put all his time and energy into K-9 Carts, but he began producing doggy wheelchairs long before he entered retirement; Lincoln has been creating wheels for dogs in need ever since the 60’s!

DR PARKES MAKING A SET OF DOGGY WHEELS

It all started when a man came to him with a paralyzed pup.

The dog had been hit by a car and had been left paralyzed from the waist down and was unable to walk.

The distraught pet-dad didn’t know what to do and was considering euthanizing his furbaby.

The poor pup’s quality of life had dropped significantly and the pup was getting very difficult to care for

ONE OF THE DOGS THAT DR PARKES HAS HELPED IS FITTED WITH WHEELS

But Lincoln had an idea.

He built the paralyzed pup its own little cart and took the pup out for a test drive.

Lincoln and the pups pet-dad took the pup to a field and threw a frisbee.

They watched as the pup rushed after the frisbee, jumped, and caught the disc mid-air.

It was truly a lifechanging moment.

Lincoln’s cart had given the pup its life back, and Lincoln had found a new calling in life.

The rest is history.

Lincoln founded K-9 Carts and has been changing disabled pups’ lives ever since.

DR PARKES AND THE K-9 CART COMPANY

Lincoln’s custom makes every cart to make sure it suits each dog’s needs, and it’s obvious how much he cares for every little pup who crosses his path.

And even though he’s 92, he’s determined to keep on working and keep on saving lives.

Lincoln is an amazing man and a true inspiration.

He’s saved so many lives, both as a vet and thanks to his puppy wheelchairs, and we’re absolutely in awe of his compassion and dedication.

He’s been highly praised online and has restored many people’s faith in humanity.

AN ODE TO A BELOVED DOG NAMED BEAU

In 1981, renowned actor James ‘Jimmy’ Stewart read a poem about his beloved dog Beau which left talk-show host Johnny Carson in tears.

Jimmy Stewart And His Beloved Golden Retriever Beau

One of the most renowned actors in history, who enthralled us with classics such as “It’s a Wonderful Life,” “Rear Window,” and “Vertigo,” was Jimmy Stewart. He served in World War 2 and the Vietnam War before becoming a veteran of both conflicts. On an episode of “The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson” in 1981, we got to see a different side of Jimmy as he spoke at length about his deceased Golden Retriever named Beau.

Beau was a loved companion of Jimmy. The adorable dog would crawl into Jimmy’s bed and demand him to stroke his hair and pat his head. When Jimmy was filming in Arizona, he received a call informing him that Beau was dying terminally ill. He poured all of his sentiments for Beau into a poem entitled “I’ll Never Forget a Dog Named Beau,” which he recited on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. We’ll never forget this episode. It touched millions of hearts around the country and world!

You must keep up the volume as you listen to Jimmy deliver his compelling story on Beau. It’s a lovely tribute to his dog, in which he discusses all the wonderful times they spent together. Towards the end of the poem, when Jimmy described with accuracy the emptiness we feel after losing a beloved pet, we were sobbing uncontrollably. Thank you very much, Jimmy, for writing this beautiful and emotion-packed poem.

The Heart-Warming Story Of Mama, The “Graveyard Dog”

In 2015, a heart-breaking photo circulated online. It was a picture of a broken and exhausted German Shepherd sitting on top of a grave in Serbia. The internet came to the conclusion that the dog was trying to dig a hole to stay close to her late owner. However, this was far from the truth.

When the story was first reported, the public made the assumption that this animal was someone’s pet. Dogs are famous for their loyalty and they have been known as “man’s best friend” for centuries. The story was widely shared on social media sites, people were overcome with sympathy for the grieving animal.

11

But the real truth behind the viral photo is something no one expected. These photographs were taken in Serbia by an amazing woman named Vesna Mihajloski who is an animal activist and rescuer. She was moved by what she saw but, as she spent more time watching the animal, she discovered that the dog was not attempting to dig any deeper. In fact, the dog appeared to be more concerned about something underneath the grave’s headstone.

 In the photos below, follow along the mother dog’s journey as she and her puppies receive the care they desperately needed. Slowly but surely, thanks to Vesna and the heroes who stepped in to save them, the courageous canine family began to regain their health, and the transformation is astounding. The puppies are growing into playful, energetic, and goofy pups!

With just a little bit of compassion and kindness, this mother and her babies will now live the lives they so deserve.

This is not a story of death, but of life.

11

Animal rescuer Vesna Mihajloski realized this is a mother dog who dug a hole under the grave to create a warm and safe den for her four tiny puppies.

11

 Vesna took the dogs home and immediately began caring for them. No longer were they forced to seek shelter in a graveyard.

11

 Fortunately, the puppies were on their way to a full recovery!

The canine family began to regain their health as they were fed and provided with medical care. Vesna put together a soft bed with a warm blanket, they would no longer have to hide in a hole in a graveyard. Vensa was so moved by how this new mother managed to care for her babies that she simply named her “Mama”.

11

It was clear to the team of rescuers that Mama took great care of her babies, and always made sure they were safe and warm. Mama never left her puppies’ side, but welcomed Vesna’s help.

11

 With just a little bit of compassion and kindness, this mother and her babies will now live the lives they so deserve. As you can see, the German Shepherd puppies are growing into playful, energetic, and goofy pups!

11

Mama couldn’t be happier or more grateful. No more graveyards, no more digging holes for her puppies — just love, care, and warmth.

The puppies quickly grew to love their safe home and gradually began venturing out to explore and play with their toys.

11

Thank God that what began as a seemingly tragic story ends with a sweet surprise.

Help With Vet Medication Costs Of Over £100 Per Month To Give Gem Relief From The Injury To Her Right Cruciate Ligament.

After many years of raising money for animal charities (£70,000 so far) I now find myself needing help for Gem, one of my beloved dogs.

GEM

Gem started limping and wouldn’t put her right left leg down. We took her to the vet where she had x-rays etc. It now looks like she has a fracture of her right cruciate ligament which may need operating on in the future. Gem was hit by a land rover when she was only two which hasn’t seemed to bother her but perhaps it does now.

So far her treatment has cost £1,100. Unfortunately Gem’s insurers won’t pay out because we have only started with them and it is within the the first 14 days!. Any help would be greatly appreciated. If she needs an operation on her cruciate ligament it will cost £3,500.

Anything raised over the total cost will be given to Miracle’s Mission to help them rescue and rehabilitate sick and injured animals.

Please donate ANY amount, large or small, at HELP GEM.

18-YR-OLD BLIND DACHSHUND WAS DUMPED AT SHELTER, CLINGS TO FIRST PERSON WHO SHOWED HER LOVE

She wagged her tail as her new mom signed the papers to adopt her.

Old, blind and lost at a kill shelter, Muneca didn’t seem like she had much left to hold on to.

Until the first person to show her kindness came along.

And then, the 18-year-old dachshund refused to let go.

Muneca, an 18-year-old blind Dachshund, was dumped at an animal shelter, leaving her alone and terrified. At this time, she no longer had a home, her vision, or someone to love her.

But Muneca’s story didn’t end with a bittersweet moment at what seemed the end of the line. Hwang’s photograph moved thousands to share her plight.

Just two days after being dumped at the shelter, the Frosted Faces Foundation stepped up to get Muneca out of there.

Suddenly, a dog who seemed to have no one had people all over the world lining up to take her home. She found the perfect fit with Amy Gann. Literally.

“We screened a lot of people and talked to all their references,” Kelly Smíšek, executive director of Frosted Faces, tells The Dodo. “We home-checked a bunch of people.

“By the time we approved someone and they drove to San Diego, I met them, I was very nervous. I thought, ‘I hope we picked the right person.’ And immediately, it was, ‘Oh my Gosh. I’m so glad she’s going home with you.'”

It turned out Muneca had a lot more memories to make outside of that shelter. Even before she found her real home. Like when she soaked in a much-needed bath.

Or when she sprawled out on a picnic blanket, chomping on a treat.

“I can’t put her down,” Gann wrote to Smíšek in a text message. “I have very close family and we pass her along like a new baby in the family.”

In fact, Gann even made a sling for Muneca, so she can keep her close to her while doing chores around the house.

Muneca may not be able to see the setting sun on a California beach, but she can surely feel the warmth that will embrace her for the rest of her days.

Remembering When Meat Loaf Rescued A Puppy From A Dumpster While On Tour

Meat Loaf with Little Ms. Karma

Many abandoned dogs are rescued every day and when rock star singer Meat Loaf was on tour, the crew one night noticed someone left a puppy behind a dumpster. They decided to rescue the puppy and proceeded to feed, cuddle and take her to the vet.

They posted on their Facebook page a picture of the puppy they rescued. The puppy joined the band on the road and they named her Little Ms. Karma. The puppy temporarily joined them on tour and adjusted well as the band took turns giving her lots of love.

Meat said in the post “Some of you already know that the other night after our rehearsal, our crew saw someone dumping this beautiful baby girl behind a dumpster. They scooped her up and after a couple days of Vet visits, sleeping, lots of cuddles and settling into life on the road, Little Ms Karma, left us last night to go to her new forever home. We’ll miss her but she’s on her way to her new momma and sisters and a big ole ranch to run around and we’re even more excited that she’s staying a part of the extended Meat Loaf family forever!!!

But life on the road is no place for a dog and eventually, a forever home was made with the family of one of the crew. So Little Ms Karma said goodbye to the band to join one member of her extended Meat Loaf family who lives on a ranch with his wife and daughters. Remembering Meat Loaf’s famous Grammy Award for Best Rock Solo Performance for “I’d Do Anything for Love” is truly reflected by the rescue.

Love is what makes us do things to have a little bit of heaven on earth. Love is also paying good karma forward and I think this is the main reason why Meat Loaf and his crew gave this sweet dog a whole lot of loving and a forever home.

Karma is much bigger now and has settled into her new life. She even has fans of her own!
