Puppy Bowl 2013

I’ll admit, I’m pretty excited to watch the Superbowl this year and I don’t have Animal Planet, so I’ll be missing out anyway, but for those of you looking for something else to watch Superbowl Sunday (February 3rd), the Puppy Bowl is for you! It airs on Animal Planet from 3-5, but check your local listings to make sure.

I’ve already chosen my favorite contender:

And never fear cat lovers, there’s a kitty halftime show!

Don’t forget there will be the Kiss Cam and the Water bowl Cam as well as a few new and exciting ‘cams.’ Also, word on the street is that this year’s cheerleaders will be a hedgehog cheering squad!

All of the animals playing in the Puppy Bowl are from shelters from around the U.S. and Puerto Rico and are up for adoption.

Catnip Spoof Video

I wanted to title this “The Dangers of Catnip”, but I didn’t want anyone to panic. This is a purely joke video I came across made to look like a 60’s-70’s drug intervention video. Really, really funny.

Rescued Barred Owls

Did you know that not only does the Humane Society care for the plight of domestic animals, but it also has a wildlife division, Humane Wildlife Services? Together with the Raptor Conservancy of Virginia, they rescued a nesting pair of barred owls. Currently the Humane Wildlife Services only services the DC and northern Virginia area, but what a great service created by the HSUS.

 

How Animals See the World

Have you ever wondered how your cat or dog sees the world around her? I found this awesome graphic that shows not only cats and dogs, but other animals as well. It’s fascinating to me to think of the different ways that animals take in information around them. They see things we don’t, smell things we don’t, and hear things we don’t. The world is a completely different place for them than it is for us.

A Pointy Predicament

This was not one of my patients, but an article in a veterinary journal. This is an 18lb neutered male pointer mix. He’s fine now after a rhinotomy (nose surgery), but can you see what his predicament was? His owners have no idea how that got there. It was in there for about 3 weeks before he started acting strange, having trouble eating, and had nasal discharge. Oops, gave you a clue where to look! (I also left the titles on the pics so you’d know in case you couldn’t see it in the x-rays)
