Around the Web

Though canine psychologists and scientists say that dogs don't have an innate sense of guilt (rather, they are responding to your cues--body language, verbal language, and tone), some dogs can really make an impressive show of their "guilt." Check out this funny video of a dog who hides in the shower after her owner discovers the bedsheets that she destroyed.

The Westminster dog show is back, February 11th and 12th. You can watch streaming video online at the Westminster official website, which will include the breed judging leading up to the main events starting tomorrow. This is the first year that will include comprehensive streaming coverage, in previous years we have only been able to see the best of breed. If you are a smartphone user, you can also download the iPhone or Android app!

Britain is enacting a bold new measure that will require all pet dogs to be microchipped by 2016. Shrewd pet owners have already made the small investment in their pet's safety-- a microchip costs only about $30 USD, and can be a life-saver if your pet is ever separated from you. We have all read story after story about how this technology has brought pets home, over great time and distances even! Maybe we should consider lobbying for something similar here--too many strays are put down simply because their owners cannot be found.

I spotted this warning on KOMO to keep xylitol away from dogs. It's kind of a funky sounding chemical, but there may be more in your house than you think. It is an ingredient in chewing gum and other sugar-free candies, and can trigger hypoglycemia in dogs.
