Pet of the Week: Stories of friendship, adoptable pups Molly & Pica & rescued mules Frankie & Johnny
Today’s Pet of the Week from PennySaverUSA.com is all about the power of friendship, and proof that a good friend can lift you up, even in the hardest times. Warning, you may need to pull out the tissues for these.
The iconic couple pictured to the right is made up of a mild-mannered 11-year old female fox terrier, Molly, and a spunky 2-year old brown male chihuahua, Pica. These longtime residents of the Burbank Animal Shelter are the best of friends, and their individual traits complement each other to make these two a great addition to any family.
The two are inseparable and have seen each other through these lonelier times. They need to be adopted together as indoor dogs, but they will enjoy daily walks and other casual outdoor activity. You’ll never find a more classic couple, and proof that love knows no bounds. Contact the Burbank Animal Shelter to meet them ID #A009811 and ID #A036975.

Today’s inspirational story from blogger The More the Merrier, and is another heartwarming tale about an incredibly sweet duo, rescued mules Frankie and Johnny. We’ll let their owner Kay tell their story in her own words.
“When we first saw Frankie and Johnny we had just pulled into a convenience store in town to get gas. A constable SUV, pulling a trailer loaded with two mules, pulled in shortly after. As they walked past us, heading into the store, Hubby asked them what they were doing with the mules. They said someone had turned them loose in the State Park, and they had just rounded them up. Then he looked straight at my husband and said, “Why? Do you want them?” I think Hubby and I both said, “YES!” at the exact same time!
When they arrived, the constable handed me a can of wound coat, and gave Hubby two bags of sweetfeed (a pelleted horse feed with molasses added). Turns out, the wound coat was because the male (Johnny) had gotten into a fight with another male donkey when they were at the impound. He had bite marks on his neck, right shoulder, and nose. Bless his little heart, he was so messed up! We’ve had them almost a week now. Hubby has been taking care of Johnny’s wounds every day. He cleans them out and sprays them down with the wound coat spray. Johnny is healing, slowly but surely. Frankie is never far away. She stays close and keeps an eye on everything Hubby is doing.”
We love happy endings, and Frankie and Johnny certainly found theirs with Kay and her family. We hope someone will open their hearts to Molly and Pica. For more about Frankie and Johnny, please visit Kay’s blog.
