They're lucky if officials wouldn't find them some of them would pass away on the remaining part of the trip.

serious case of pass it on

Hero who paid to return stranger’s dog rewarded for generosity
Lawrence Dalle Vedove cries after gift of flight to Australia

Image
Lawrence Dalle Vedove sobbed.

The 51-year-old Hamilton resident, who became a hero overnight after offering $5,000 to help reunite a dog with its family, has become the recipient of generosity himself.

Dalle Vedove gave up his vacation fund to visit Australia after hearing about an 80-year-man with dementia whose dog wound up lost and adopted by a new family.

That family wanted to keep the dog — a 10-year-old miniature pinscher boxer mix named Kimbo — but decided to return him in exchange for Dalle Vedove’s $5,000 offer.

Since Kimbo was returned to Karl Daniels and his family in an emotional reunion on Tuesday, several people have come forward with offers of cash, cheques and a crowdfunding campaign to repay Dalle Vedove for his generosity. But it was one particular gesture that broke the dam — a free plane ticket to Australia.

“I didn’t mean to cry,” he whispered.

“Oh, god,” he said, once told by the Star that Expedia Canada was willing to cover his trip.

“I don’t know what to say. Thank you. I’m grateful. I don’t know what to say. I don’t.”

The $5,000 Dalle Vedove had used to secure Kimbo’s return had originally been saved for a trip to Australia.

Lawrence’s act of kindness touched and inspired the travel company, said Adam Francis of Expedia Canada.

The outreach didn’t end there.

Kimbo’s owners were so appreciative, that they launched a gofundme page to raise the $5,000 he spent on them. As of Wednesday night, it had raised more than $2,400.

“We were talking about that… how do we go about giving him back his money? We were thinking about starting a gofundme campaign” said Michelle Daniels, Karl’s daughter.

Dalle Vedove said anything he receives over the $5,000 he offered to help Kimbo will be donated to an animal welfare organization.

aliihsanasl wrote:Sculpture of Istanbul’s cat phenomenon ‘Tombili’ to be inaugurated on Oct 4

A sculpture created in memory of “Tombili,” the portly cat who became a social media phenomenon after being photographed posing on a sidewalk in Istanbul’s Ziverbey neighborhood, will be inaugurated on Oct. 4 on World Animal Day.
Following a Change.org campaign demanding that the Kadıköy Municipality arrange a commemorative sculpture of Tombili, who died in August, sculptor Seval Şahin voluntarily erected the sculpture demonstrating Tombili’s iconic pose on the sidewalk.

The sculpture will be officially inaugurated in the same place where the photo was taken at 1:00 p.m. on World Animal Day.

Tombili, whose fame spread worldwide after his iconic picture appeared on the viral site 9GAG, passed away after a month-long illness on Aug. 1.

His death was announced by a notice hung on a tree in the neighborhood’s Güleç Street, reading: “You will live on in our hearts"

You spend a good part of your life studying an artist....then this...
It's a good tale...

Image

As one of the world's top authorities on van Gogh, she'd been asked many times to check artwork found in an attic or a garage, only to discover it was a print or a poster. Her expectations were low. But this time, she said, she got the shock of her life.

"When I opened it up, the first thing I said was, 'No, unbelievable!'" Welsh-Ovcharov told CBC News in an exclusive advance TV interview at her Toronto home.

"The first drawing that I took out and held in my hands, it was a moment of total mystical experience: 'Oh my goodness, this is impossible!'"

What's more, as she leafed through the sketchbook, she soon realized it contained an astounding number of drawings: 65 in all.

B.B.C. - Ben Carter's Tommee Tippee cup search 'incredible' success

A dad's desperate search to replace his autistic son's beloved "little blue cup" has ended - after the manufacturer stepped in to make a lifetime's supply.
Marc Carter's plea to find a replacement sippy cup for son Ben was retweeted more than 12,000 times.
The 14-year-old has only drunk from the double-handled vessels, which are no longer produced, since the age of two.
Tommee Tippee said it will produce 500 cups after it searched factories worldwide and found the original mould.
