With plenty of left overs for the pups.

Super Vet Does Thanksgiving

A little hokey but you get the general idea. Keep table scraps away from your dog and if you don't, be prepared to clean up the results.

'Tis the Season to Adopt



'Tis the season to be thinking about gifts. If you are thinking about a pet, please think about adopting one. This video says it all--there are usually no bad pet, just bad owners.

Quack! Quack!!



This happened in the CVS in Saratoga Springs, New York about three weeks ago. Fifty ducks wandered in--looking for some nesting materials perhaps? And were shooed out by a Swiffer.

Too funny!

Shrek



By now, you have probably hard about Shrek, the maltese poodle who found his way to the backyard of a veterinarian in Canada. The dog was so covered in matted hair, the vet's husband thought he was a piece of rotten carpet. Underneath all that hair (3.5 pounds of it) was a pup who had never had human contact. He is now thriving in the home of his rescuers and "restoring their faith in humanity."

The Price Was More Than Right



They say elephants never forget. Well they certainly aren't going to forget the generosity of animal lover Bob Barker who paid $1 million to transfer a trio of elephants from the Toronto Zoo to their new home at an animal sanctuary in California.

The Birds



I feel very sorry for these people. They should qualify for a permit to do something to relocate these birds. Maybe they will fly south soon?

Escape Artists at Work



Man goes to work. Puts dog and cat in kitchen behind closed door. Man comes home from work. Dog and cat are running around the house. It happens again, and again and again. Man sets up hidden camera. Watch the escape artists at work with dog cheering on cat!

Inside a Penguin's Brain



Ever wonder what goes on in a penguin's brain? Well in Fluffy's there was an infection that was causing him to wobble and not be able to preen. Vets at the University of Minnesota's Vet School performed the first ever MRI on a penguin to determine this and once treatment with antibiotics was started, Fluffy made a dramatic improvement.

The prognosis is excellent for Fluffy, who at 18 is middle aged for a penguin.

Mr. Snuggles to the Rescue



Mr. Snuggles, the adorable golden retriever puppy in the video, is going to be a lifesaver--literally. Donated to Amira Jones, by the firefighters in Corona, California, the dog will eventually be trained to detect Amira's seizures before they happen. Since the firefighters were often called in to help Amira when she had seizures, they knew how much a dog could help the little girl.

And believe it or not, since the dog has arrived on the scene, Amira has not had a seizure.

The Dog Walk



All of the accessories in the video above are from Ralph Lauren's 2013 season. And all of the dogs are from shelters and have been rewarded with forever homes.

That's fashion done right.

Thanks For Your Service



Just a wonderful video about the special relationship between handlers and their military dogs. I have to believe these dogs save so many lives, not only with their explosive detection capabilities, but also with their unconditional love. Brave, brave warriors: human and dog alike.

Loki



Loki, the adorable lab puppy in the video above, is the official mascot for Fitness Blend, a site with workouts you can down load. But aside from that he is just plain adorable. Here he gets his first taste of a lemon slice, looks in the mirror and talks to his owner.

Cuteness overload.

Mission Accomplished

wave3.com-Louisville News, Weather

Here's a dog who took matters into his own hands. While being housed in a Colorado shelter, he went out and found himself a new family.

Re-named Houdini, this Australian Shepherd's escape antics were caught on the shelter's security camera. Smart dog. Hope the new owners have a fence, although I don't think he will be going anywhere.

Happy Birthday Allison!

A feel-good story about a ten year old girl who forfeited her birthday gifts to raise money for a bullet proof vest for a dog in her local police unit. Way to go Allison!

Almost Heartbreak Hill

14 News, WFIE, Evansville, Henderson, Owensboro

The first dog to complete a half marathon without human assistance is awarded a medal for his efforts. Just like a lab to follow a large pack of runners!
