Video: Dogs “Walk” Humans, Adoptions Rise

We've all seen ads for animal shelters and the Humane Society featuring sad faces of animals looking for their "furever" home. Yes, they can tug at your heart, and are quite often very effective. However, after you see them over and over, they can lose their emotional impact. With this in mind, an Australian animal shelter came up with a unique program in which the dogs do the "rescuing" of humans. Check out the video to see how this shift in perspective saved some 5,000 dogs.

Protect Your Pets!

Let's face it, those of us who live in South Texas aren't used to very cold weather. That's why a lot of us moved here from elsewhere, and why we have "Winter Texans," who come south to avoid sub-zero temperatures and ice & snow where they live the rest of the year. Well, when it gets this cold, we need to take special care of our furry family members, too (no, not Uncle Bob with the hairy back). Our pets require special attention, so here are some helpful suggestions on how to do just that.
