Walk Like a Bear



When this video first surfaced there was some concern that it was a fake--that the bear walking upright was a human in a bear suit. But experts have confirmed that its the real deal. When bears walk upright it is often a sign that they have injured their front paw(s). In this case, it appears that one of the bears paws is partially amputated.

Shake it Off



Having spent a lot of time with wet dogs, right out of the pool, this summer, I can testify that they can dry themselves amazingly fast with just a few hard shakes. The same is not true for us!

Recycling/Vending Machine



Genius idea: Pugedon, a company in Turkey, created a machine that dispenses food and water for stray dogs, in exchange for plastic bottles. While I don't usually condone feeding strays--they would be better off in shelters--this idea is especially significant in Turkey, a country known for large population of stray dogs. The city of Istanbul is home to 150,000 stray cats and dogs.

So bravo Pugedon--this is a win/win worth emulating.
