In the news-- a dog owner refuses to let his pups blindness slow either of them down. It's really touching to get a glimpse of the special relationships that people have with their pets-- I'm lucky to be able to see it every single day.
This is a neat article about tricks and how they can help to keep your pooch in shape;. Just remember not to give too many treats, or it will counterbalance the effects of the exercise!
A dog who was blinded by an autoimmune condition now sells paintings (yes, the dog's own paintings!) to benefit a dog rescue charity. If you want to take a look at her artwork, click this link.
After Pudsey won Britain's Got Talent, we now have Olate Dogs competing in America's Got Talent (not to be outdone, of course). These pooches have some serious talent, and can do some really amazing tricks. And best of all? They are rescue pups.
Another great story--Fairy Dog Parents is a group that helps pet owners who have fallen on hard times, to enable them to keep their family members and lower the rates at which pets are being surrendered (which always goes up significantly during economic downturns).
Have a great weekend everyone, and I hope to see you back soon!
