A happy story from the NZ earthquake

This story came to me as an email this morning, I had to share.

The story begins after the Christchurch earthquake with the rescuers finding this poor little
guy they named Ralphie. Someone had already taken him under their wing but they weren't equipped to adopt.

Ralphie, scared and starved, joined his rescuers..

I wouldn't think anything could live through this.... but we were wrong.

This little lady also survived that wreckage.

Here she is just placed in the car - scared, but safe.

and then..they are no longer alone!

Instant friends, they comforted each other while in the car.

Add two more beagles found after that...

the more, the merrier!

Oh boy, a new traveler to add to the mix...
(Note: the cat coming over the seat needing shelter...)
Now just how is this going to work? (and remember they are all strange to one another )

It's going to work just fine, thank you very much!! The things we learn from our animal friends...

If only all of mankind could learn such valuable lessons as this.

Lessons of instant friendship.

of peace and harmony by way of respect for one another -- no matter one's color or creed.
These animals tell you... "It's just good to be alive and with others."

So... Live, love, laugh.

"Life's a Gift... Unwrap It!"

I don't know who to credit for this, so, if by chance, you do, let me know so I can rectify
