We’re back again with another 5 pieces of good news to brighten your week – plus all of the webinars we’ve got coming up this week at The Webinar Vet.

Our good news this week starts with the story of how a New York hospital’s entire staff was surprised with free vacations in recognition of their efforts to combat coronavirus [link]

Next, we’ve got the story of Fungie the dolphin, a famous solitary dolphin living off the west Kerry coast who had become lonely without any human interaction over the past two months because of the Covid-19 pandemic lockdown, who’s been kept company by a kind fisherman visiting him twice a day [link]

Plus, the story of a missing sausage dog has been reunited with his owners after they used bacon to help him find his way back to them [link]

And finally, some incredible new footage out of Newport Beach, California, has been released, showing dolphins swimming through bioluminescence [link]
