Dot Not Try With a Wild Fox

Do not try this with a wild fox. This one has lived in a sanctuary since birth and cannot be returned to the wild, it is so domesticated (and so very cute).

What a wonderful story about a french bulldog pup, Lentil, who had his palate repaired but not his cleft lip since it was purely cosmetic. Now he is an ambassador for kids with facial surgeries. And it all happened in my own backyard: Penn Vet and Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.

Tail Wind

Breaking sports news video. MLB, NFL, NBA, NHL highlights and more.

Talk about a narrow escape! A small, white dog leaped away from his owner and onto the Tour de France course, just as the pack was coming around the curve, at breakneck speed. Luckily he managed to cross the road with no disaster, but talk about a close call....

Wow. Credit O'Neill, a guide dog in training for recognizing that something was terribly wrong seconds before a car came careening down the sidewalk where he and his trainers were practicing. The driver, a 93 year old, was trying to parallel park and hit reverse instead of the brakes.

Thankfully, no one was hurt.

This is pretty funny. There must be something about getting her tail wet that keeps this pup from taking the plunge, even as she chases goldfish around the baby pool. Perhaps doesn't want to mess up her coif?
