This Dog Waits For His Girl After School Every Day

One day while driving home after school, 17-year-old Elisa Lee saw a nose of a doggie outside his house – fast forward to now, the two became friends with Lee patting the doggie every day. “At first I was afraid that he would bite me, since most dogs would bark at you and seem aggressive if you came near their house,” the student told BuzzFeed. But he didn’t.

“The first time I pet him he was so excited and started licking my hand and pawing at it,” she said. This became their daily ritual after Lee’s school: she has to come to pet the canine over and over again.

“Sometimes he’s not there, probably chewing on a toy or laying in the grass, but if I call his name he is sure to come to the little spot on the right side of the gate where he can see me better,” she said. “Most of the time, by the time I walk to the spot, he waits there for me to pet him before I leave.”

Lee met his owner and the old man revealed the doggie’s name was Ralph. Now the dog is addicted to Lee’s pats: “A lot of the time he looks so sad when I leave and tell him bye, but I tell him I will be there the following day or so on.”

This Woman Built A “Cat Ladder” For Strays So They Could Come In When It’s Cold Outside

This winter has been particularly chilly in Turkey, so one kind woman came up with an amazing solution to help the freezing stray cats – she built a cat ladder that leads into her home. “I made the ladder so the cats can come into my comfortable house,” Sebnem Ilhan told The Dodo. The woman who works as a dentist in the town of Tekirdag came with this solution after spotting homeless cats suffering in the cold, and decided to turn her home into a refuge from winter.
However, she wasn’t sure how her neighbours would react to this addition to her windows, so Ilhan put some ornaments. “I thought if I put some flower pots there, it wouldn’t bother anyone,” she said. But the reception has been overwhelmingly positive — especially among the countless kitties who have taken advantage of her offer of a warm place to rest.

Building a ‘cat ladder’ is not the only way Ilhan has served the animals in need – the woman also volunteers her time to care for stray dogs and felines at a local rescue. “I wish no animal is hungry or thirsty, just happy,” she said. “This world is not just for people.”
