Poodle And Pooch

Life has been rough for Sniffles the dog.

He's an older pup who was originally a stray dog on the streets of Puerto Rico.

He got into a fight with a pack of other dogs and as a result of his injuries he lost his nose. Initially, people thought (and reported) that he was born without one, but closer examination showed it was torn off in a fight.

It took three surgeries to get him to where he is now.

A rescue stepped in and brought him to Florida, where he was adopted. That adoption wasn't a good fit, though, as Sniffles kept breaking out to wander the streets—it was all he had ever known.

However, with the help of Poodle and Pooch Rescue, it looks like he may finally find his happy ending. Poodle And Pooch specializes in rescuing dogs that are considered "less adoptable" because they are old, require medical attention, have special needs, etc.

Around Christmas time, Sniffles and his story really started to take off.

For totally not-at-all obvious reasons... (yup, sarcasm!)

His sudden popularity has lead to literally hundreds of calls and tons of mail from people who are interested in adopting him. Poodle And Pooch doesn't think he's quite ready to go just yet, though.

Living your whole life on the streets is rough. Sniffles has hookworms, whip worms and a tick-borne disease.

Sniffles' new family will also need to commit to flushing out his nasal passages a few times a day and putting drops in his eyes regularly since he doesn't produce enough tears naturally.

Even with all of that stacked against him, he's got "several great options" for potential adopters according to Poodle And Pooch.

How could he not? Look at how much Twitter loves him!

Poodle and Pooch has been so overwhelmed by people's response to Sniffles, that they want to remind everyone that there are tons of other great dogs out there who are also looking for their "fur-ever" homes.

When Sniffles is ready, the internet sensation will have more options than he could shake a stick at.

Poodle And Pooch is hoping that his popularity will also help other animals in need, not just in their rescue, but around the world.

The advice "fake it til you make it," though often said with at least a hint of sarcasm, does carry quite a bit of wisdom.

I'm going to be perfectly honest––I'm a city boy. I'm not a huge fan of hiking or camping. I happen to be a huge fan of running water. Have you heard of it? It's great. Highly recommended.

I've also, on a more humorous note, watched far too many horror films over the years and don't particularly like idea of running off into the woods only to piss off some demon that was perfectly fine until I arrived. I also have immense respect for our friendly neighborhood serial killers and demonstrate this regularly by staying out of their territory.

Those who love the great outdoors had plenty to share after Redditor Your_Normal_Loser asked the online community, "

Hikers of Reddit, what is the weirdest or creepiest thing you've come across while hiking?"

Time is of the essence. And time is not definable. Those are lessons we learn as we get older; as times passes and fluctuates in front of us.

Time is always fleeting yet always catches up to us. I find myself shocked when I wake up on certain days and realize I'm a particular age of my parent that sticks out for me.

Like, how did that happen? I guess I should just be thankful I'm still here to witness it all.

Redditor u/TW1103 wanted to discuss the meaning... of time and all of its affects by asking:

What fact really puts the scale of time into an insane perspective?
