Bandit's hardheaded

Just wanna share how Bandit did today. Well, he is doing good as usual. I thank God that he is as healthy as can be. He had been a little bit hardheaded this morning though because when him and I went out to the backyard which we usually do every morning when I wake up to have him go to the bathroom (potty or poopoo) while I am feeding Flash (horse). Bandit always get so excited everytime I start wearing my coat ( for the cold), boots and bonnet because he knew that it's time to go out to the backyard and feed Flash then he could sneak some crumbs from Flash's senior glow grain. So, we went out together. I had him go potty and poopoo, he is mostly good at doing this when I told him so. But then, he started going down by the creek which is not really that far from our backyard's boundary. I started calling him but he was pretending not to hear me call his name and he just continued to roam around the area, just glad that the creek was dry and no water was flowing. Yeah, he was acting a bit hardheaded today so I just left him and went back to the house. After a couple of minutes I saw him running back to the house as he found out that I was no longer in the backyard.


Afghan boy needs home

Diane my sister-in-law from Florida sent me and hubby an email that somebody needs me. When I clicked the link it pulled out a photo of an Afghan male dog who was ready for adoption and really needed home. I always feel sad when I see dogs that need a home to stay. How I wish I could take these dogs at home so I could take care of them. Hubby and I sometimes thought about adopting a new dog so Bandit will have a playmate but we are still skeptical about it because it is really a handful even taking care of one dog and besides it needs a lot of cleaning and vaccuming specially when they shed a lot. The most difficult part about it is that it is not easy to leave the house and be away for several days because nobody would take care of these pets. I remember when we went for a trip to Idaho for 3 days. Boy! I really missed Bandit and Tiger. I don't think I could handle being away from them. Anyways, take a look of the photo of this Afghan dog named Dallas. I hope he could find a good home soon.

Dallas is a 16 mos male Afghan Dog. He is looking for a good home preferrably in Colorado. If anyone interested to adopt him just check the Afghan Hound rescue and find out more info about Dallas.

Inexpensive toys for your cats

It is not necessary to spend a fortune at the pet store to please your cat's playful streak. Some of the most popular toys are freebies or home-made. Try out some of the following on your favorite feline.

  • Lightweight items for the "catch and kill" game, such as balled-up tissue or waxed paper.
  • Plastic rings that hold down the lids of plastic milk jugs--great for sliding along the kitchen floor.
  • A couple of ping pong balls in the bathtub--purrfect for feline raquetball.
  • The centers of toilet paper, tape, and calculator rolls, empty plastic film containers, nuts in their shells--all useful for batting practice.
  • Cotton socks of varying sizes stuffed with cotton balls and catnip and tied at the end.
Cats love hide-outs. From time to time let your cat explore a paper grocery bag (without handlers) or a cardboard box. Never let your cat play in a plastic bag due to the danger of suffocation.

Cats are sprinters not marathoners.....

The average domestic cat can run at a speed of around 30 mph. Egyptian Maus are reportedly the fastest breed of domestic cat, capable of reaching 36 mph. For comparison, a thoroughbred racehorse can maintain a speed of 45 mph for more than amile. The fastest racing greyhounds run at speeds of just under 42 mph for about a third of a mile. Cats are not marathon runners, or even middle-distance runners; they're sprinters. While you could never outrun a dog over distances, you could beat a cat, as they quickly overheat when running and have to stop after just 30 to 60 seconds to rest and cool down.


A dog stole a man's car

I was surprised as I watch this news. It's unbelievable how an 80 lb boxer drove a man's car. The man parked his car and left his dog inside the car but when he came back to the parking lot he couldn't find his car anymore and thought somebody might have stolen his car only to find out that the culprit was his own dog. How did this dog do it? Play the video and find out.

Funny sleepy puppy

This video is so cute and funny. Hey Buddy, having a hard time waking up or just trying to get some sleep? You look like a drunkin' master dude.


Tiger's way of "bunting"

When cats rub their heads up against you- an affectionate activity called "bunting"- they are actually tapping into special scent glands located on their cheeks and near the temples to mark you as belonging to them. This friendly gesture- which is much better than being marked with urine- could be considered the feline equivalent of a promise ring. Tiger does not only rub her head against me but she licks a lot like a dog. I think this is her way of showing her affection and making a mark of belongingness which I really don't like that much when she starts licking my skin because her tongue is very rough.

Is your cat missing her litterbox?

Aside from routine preventive care, the No. 1 reason cats are taken to a veterinarian is for what's called feline lower urinary tract disease (FLUTD). Missing the litter box is a classic symptom of this serious illness. Yet many people don't recognize the fact that a cat is sick, and they sometimes resort to punishment (which not only doesn't work on a sick cat, but is also grossly unfair). Cats with FLUTD may also be observing in pain when they urinate, and that urine can smell "different" even to the human nose. The disease can turn up in any vet but tends to hit middle-aged, overweight pets most. Stress may also be a contributung factor, which is why the problem sometimes turns up when cats are moved to a new home or when new people or pets join the family. Litter box problem often mean sick cat, not a bad one. Keeping cats from becoming obese and encouraging them to drink more can help prevent problems, as can offering smaller meals and more play to relieve stress. Cats with chronic urinary tract issues may benefit from a special diet. In any case, a veterinarian's advice can help keep a cat from contracting this top feline health problem and keep from coming back when it does.

Cat's tail has tale to tell


Watch the tail for your cat's mood swings. When your cat's tail is held right up, she's happy to see you and wants to be greeted. Cats raise their tails like flags when they feel confident and alert. As a cat's mood drops, so does the tail.

Consider your cat's tail as a barometer. When your cat explores, read a high tail as bravery and a low tail as uncertainty or fear. When your kitty arches her back with a skunklike tail, she is saying, "Please pet me, now. I'm in the mood for love." As her tail lowers with waving or twitching, back off. She's getting annoyed and is putting up the "no trespassing" sign. Leave her be!

Kitten found after 25 days in New York City Subway

New York-A skittish kitten that scampered out of its carrier on a subway platform has been found after 25 days in the underground tunnels.

Transit workers tracked down 6-month old Georgia under midtown Manhattan Saturday. Police reunited her with owner Ashley Phillips, a 24-year-old Bronx librarian.

After hearing that the black cat might have been spotted below Lexington Avenue and East 55th Street, track workers Mark Dalessio and Efrain LaPorte went through the area making "meow" sounds.

Georgia responded, and they found her cowering in a drain between two tracks.

Georgia had lost some weight and scratched her nose but was otherwise unhurt. She had disappeared while Phillips was bringing her home from a veterinarian visit last month.

The World's Ugliest Dog


Meet Elwood, a 2 year-old Chinese Crested and Chihuahua mix was crowned The World's Ugliest Dog in 2007.

Elwood, dark colored and hairless—save for a mohawk-like puff of white fur on his head—is often referred to as "Yoda," or "ET," for his resemblance to those famous science fiction characters.

"I think he's the cutest thing that ever lived," said Elwood's owner, Karen Quigley, a resident of Sewell, New Jersey.

Quigley brought Elwood out to compete for the second year at the annual ugly dog contest at the Marin-Sonoma County Fair. Elwood placed second in 2006.

Most of the competing canines were also Chinese Crested, a breed that features a mohawk, bug eyes and a long, wagging tongue.

Quigley said she rescued Elwood two years ago. "The breeder was going to euthanize him because she thought he was too ugly to sell," said Quigley.

"So ha ha, now Elwood's all over the Internet and people love him and adore him."

Beyond the regal title of ugliest dog, Elwood also earned a $1,000 reward for his owner.

Dog chewed superbowl tickets

ARIZONA – A dog named Buddy probably doesn't realize how lucky he is that his owner was able to get replacement tickets. See, Buddy chewed up a pair of Superbowl tickets that were delivered to his Arizona home.

They were delivered through the mail slot, and Buddy, who usually likes to chew his toys, made confetti out of the package. Inside, two $900 tickets to Superbowl XXXXII.

Owner Chris Gallagher says he couldn't believe what he saw when he came home earlier this week.

The black lab had mistaken the package for – well whatever he thought was in there must have seemed to good to leave un-chewed. Gallagher says he wasn't sure what to do. But after a quick phone call his fears were swept away – replacements were available.

And that's lucky because Gallagher says he couldn't afford the $1800 tickets in the first place – they were for a friend. This time, the expensive stubs will be waiting at will call – far from Buddy's hungry eyes.
