How One Dog Became a Kitten Nanny

Tuesday, November 11, 2014

Here's a testament to the friendship between cats and dogs – a story about ' Boots,' a Chow-Golden Retriever mix who was one of 300 animals rescued and treated in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. After recovering from his initial injuries, Boots was adopted by an EAMT volunteer. She noticed right away how well Boots and her cats got along, which is why he was recruited to be a kitten babysitter at a kitten nursery, based in Arizona, which cares for kitties at the young ages of 5-8 weeks old.  READ MORE

Do you ever feel like your pets have tapped into the secret of life when they look at you day after day with a big, slobbery grin on their face? Pet owners have long benefitted from their dogs' contented, playful nature. In fact, I'm pretty sure they're one of the best influences on humanity.

Just watch this adorable puppy frolic in a fountain in London, while his human counterparts look on, touched.   READ MORE




Rules of Etiquette for Dining Out with your Dog

Thursday, September 25, 2014

There are three basic requirements for bringing your dog to a pet-friendly restaurant: your dog needs to be socialized, non-aggressive, and responsive to basic commands (sit, stay, come, leave it). If, on the other hand, your dog is apt to pull on his leash, sniff the waiter's pants, beg for food at the table or bark in a public setting, please don't bring your furry friend along for dinner, out of respect for the dinner staff and restaurant goers. But if you feel confident your dog is well-behaved, non-aggressive and up for the potentially noisy restaurant environment, then by all means, bring him along (after you call and confirm that the restaurant allows animals of course). There can be nothing sweeter than spending an afternoon at a coffee shop with your pup or an evening on the town for dinner. It's a great bonding activity, and a fun way to meet fellow dog-owners!   READ MORE




A Walking Fish Gives Us Clues about Evolution

Thursday, September 11, 2014

Nearly 400 million years ago, a huge shift in the history of life occurred. Creatures crawled out of the sea and transitioned to living on land. Those creatures most likely are our very distant ancestors, according to Charles Darwin's Evolutionary Theory. Now scientists are beginning to collect clues about what that transition might have looked like and how it occurred, thanks to a very unique African fish, the Polypterus senegalus (also known as Bichirs). This particular fish can not only breathe air outside of water through a pair of lungs, but uses its pectoral fins to walk!   READ MORE
