Pair Of Two-Legged Dogs Become Best Mates
Well here's one to keep you going if you're having a rough day. A woman who adopted a two-legged dog has gone and adopted another - and they're now best of mates.
Theresa Loyacano adopted little Nessie in January last year, bringing her into her home in Texas, and when she saw two legged Frankie Lou, she knew she had to adopt her too.
Both of the pups were born with just two legs - so nine-year-old Chihuahua-mix Nessie has been showing 14-week-old Frankie Lou how to make the most of life.
Theresa explained: "The videos demonstrate Nessie and Frankie's bond, which developed quickly.
"You can see Nessie attempting to encourage Frankie, and Nessie seems to be trying to show Frankie how to navigate life on two legs.
"Nessie gently nudges Frankie to encourage her and Frankie is quickly learning how to get around.

"Frankie has helped Nessie as well, Nessie never really played much, it was as though she didn't know how but now with Frankie around, Nessie has become much more interested in playing."
Although it's likely that Nessie's deformity is down to inbreeding, nobody knows how Frankie Lou came to only have two legs. She was part of a litter of 16, but was the only one to be born with the condition.
Theresa wants others to be inspired to adopt dogs that otherwise would be left in the shelter, although it does take more work.
She continued: "Caring for special needs dogs was never part of our plan but when we saw Nessie's face and considered how frightened she must have been in the shelter and being abandoned all those times, we knew we could help.
"It was tough at first, caring for a dog with a limb difference can be a lot of work but we quickly learned that it was worth it.
"So, when we learned of Frankie, we already knew that we were capable of helping her to live a full happy life, just like Nessie."
I don't know who needs to see this, but these two very good doggos have made my day.
