Seal Alert



I'm a sucker for a seal and here's a new babe, born January 1 at the Brookfield Zoo in Chicago. That white fur will son start to molt and he'll be grey like his mom, but how cute is he now?

If you watch the show, "Girls," you are going to love this feline parody. If you don't, you are going to love these clever kitties!

When the People are Away, the Beagle Will Play



Maybe they should leave the chairs the way we did in school--upside down on the desk tops?

Teach Your Dog (and Your Kid) to Read



Lots of libraries have these kind of reading programs with your dogs and I have seen, firsthand, how they really do work. Dogs are marvelously nonjudgmental and this program takes that one step further by suggesting that kids learning to read can also possibly teach their dog as well.

I'm willing to wager that if you have a young readar in your house, this program will work for all of you!

No comment. But I think you already knew what your dog was thinking without this device.

Seal Love


I have to admit that I love seals and should one have jumped in my boat to give me a kiss, I would have been thrilled. I don't think these duck hunters off Cape Cod were too excited by their visitor.

Not that I endorse the snack food, but the commercial is priceless.

Dog meets doctor who saved his life. Heartwarming with the moral: never, ever give up.

Baby


These are the stories that tear at my heart. This dog is so lucky she was rescued by this kind gentleman but how horrible that she had to be rescued.

Willie

Another story of who adopts who. More like special dog gets special people.

Dog Art App


This gives me pause. First of all, I have a dog named Amos who has a very long nose. Just imagine what he could do!

Chaser

Think your dog is smart? Think again. Chaser knows 1,000 words but here's the catch. Her owner spent five hours a day for three YEARS training her.

Wave Theory--Penguin Style



Wave theory as it applies to King penguins who move the huddle from any point inside it to find themselves the ideal position. Similar to traffic jams and fascinating.

Castaways



We, in Philadelphia, have a similar program at Graterford Prison called New Leash on Life. This is an example of win/win/win and very heartwarming.

Something to think about as the calendar page turns...Be the person your dog thinks you are!

Happy New Year!
