tunnel vision



Winnie survived one of the most disturbing cruelty/neglect cases we've seen in our work. Having her here seems to have helped stop Tim's nightmares from his memories on the ground. We can't divulge details while a prosecutor builds the case, but can certainly say how great it is to have nothing but tunnel vision for Winnie's happiness now. Home boy Elliot is ever-helpful with the important work of keeping her well exercised and learning fun games .. this one being a favorite as you can tell. We're not sure how he folds himself into that tunnel for wrestle games, but it brings some of the biggest smiles of our day when he does. Enjoy.

This is so sweet... thanks for making my day! It never ceases to amaze me how animals can recover and live in the moment.

I can`t get over the size of Elliot.He makes Winnie look so tiny.
That just warms the heart.

They both look so incredibly happy. This just shows how amazingly resilient they can be. It's great that Winnie is getting another chance to lead a happy, loving life.

Great video. So happy for Winnie that she's leading the good life now and that she has a wonderful friend like Elliott.

Tim, Donna, & the rest of Badrap - I'm sorry for the nightmares your work sometimes gives you. Thank you for doing it anyway.

As for Winnie... could you be ANY cuter, little girl?

W o w. What a wonderful visual.
So cool to see ELLIOT as big brother teaching WINNIE.
Four paws up and 16 pads wiggling.

Winnie is SUPER cute!

I can't get over those sounds Elliot makes when he is playing. I had to watch the video twice. Is that a breed characteristic or just an Elliot thing? It is very endearing.

I love me some Winnie..as for whoever hurt her... my new favorite term is Dextering them. karma DOES catch up eventually!

I wish I could borrow Elliot to work with the Ohio dogs. I showed one Saturday, he warmed up very nicely and even got in a lap and licked a face. But... he's afraid to go through doorways! I guess I'll see if I can coax him with food roll-ups.

I would LOVE one of those tunnels in my garden- think my collie cross would adore it!

What fun! Glad to see Winnie is now happy.

So wonderful! That is the sutest game ever.

Elliot's noises cracked me up, too - thank goodness for the nanny-dogs who teach the wounded ones how to play and have joy.

Is the legal system done with the case against Winnie's former "owner" ?
