The YouTube channel SA Wardega did a very funny prank!  They took a small dog, dressed it in a spider costume, and put up some decorations thinking a spider was eating people.  Then they released the spider dog on unexpecting people, and they run for it!  Click play below to see people freaking out on your Friday night!

The Problem With Stray Dogs In Anniston Alabama


Picture1fvsv

I want to bring attention to you a problem in Anniston and the Golden Springs neighborhood.  You see, there are stray dogs roaming around in the area.  In the area where I live, I have seen around 10 dogs roaming around the area.  Most of the dogs are adult dogs, but I have seen a few younger dogs and puppies as well.  Here is a video from me recording two of these dogs.

So the question is this, why is the city of Anniston or Calhoun County not doing the right thing and sending animal control to try and pick up these dogs?  These dogs are staying in nearby abandoned buildings or in the nearby woods.  And every night, some of these dogs stay in the field next to the apartment complex and bark whenever someone comes out from their apartment.

Well hi dog, how are you doing?

At least some people actually cares about these dogs.  The owner of Sneaky Pete’s across the street from the apartment complex feeds these dogs with some dog food.  You can see the bowls of dog food in the field in front of the business.  And some people in the apartment complex or the businesses have left water and food for the dogs as well.  I am glad to see caring people like me trying to keep these dogs watered and fed in the hot Summer heat.

But these dogs are also roaming around and crossing Greenbrier Dear Road often, sometimes in front of the busy traffic.  I am surprised a dog has not been hit and killed yet.  Seeing these dogs roaming around and surviving is something you should NEVER see, especially in a big city like Anniston.  I know the city or the county does have animal control, which every city as big as Anniston should have, the question is this?  When is animal control coming out to capture these dogs and take them to the shelter where they will be safe?

Or is the city of Anniston and Calhoun County too poor to have animal control?  Yes, some people in Alabama actually do not care about their pets or animals, and I caught this at a Wal-Mart parking lot where a dog was tied up to a cart corral and standing on the hot sidewalk in 90 degree heat, shameful!

Since I do not expect to see animal control coming out to get these dogs anytime soon, I had to apologize to this poor dog, who will have to continue to defend for himself since the city of Anniston is too poor.  And yes, the city is about to conduct some major budget cuts and layoffs, wonderful!

Good News Fridays: Pig The Unusual Dog


Geek Alabama Good News Fridays

Dogs come in all shapes and sizes, but one dog is very different, and is from Alabama!  Pig The Unusual Dog is a female mixed-breed dog born with the birth defect “short spine syndrome.”  Even with the disability, this dog still does average things any other dog would do.

Kim Dillenbeck from Shelby County found Pig in the woods while visiting relatives in Georgia last Christmas.  Kim went to see Pig and bonded with the dog quickly.  Instead of the vet saying that Pig should be put down, Pig was brought back home to Alabama, and has become a local celebrity.

Pig has no neck and is missing parts of her spine and ribs, and she hops like a frog to stand up.  Pig has vertebrae that are fused and twisted and her spinal cord splits into two separate cords.  Plus Pig’s hips and joints are rotated in the wrong positions.  Pig is still growing and gaining weight, she weighs around 15 pounds now, and she could gain about another 20 pounds.

Pig The Unusual Dog even has a Facebook page, and as of July 25th, has close to 70,000 likes!  Pig has been out at various events around the Birmingham Metro and has become an inspiration to many.  Because of Pig, Kim’s life has changed, and has started a foundation called Pig’s Foundation, which is intended to help raise funds for individuals who rescue as well as established rescues. Some individuals need a little more help while fostering homeless animals that a rescue simply cannot afford.  Pig’s Foundation believes that if they can help develop and educate good fosters, more homeless animals can stay off the streets and out of shelters.

Also, so many rescues want to do more than they can afford to do, either due to lack of funds or lack of fosters. Sometimes, rescues must just say “no” to animals that need more medical attention than the rescue can afford, and Pig’s Foundation wants to help change that.  If you want to donate to Pig’s Foundation, click here!
