Ok, this last weekend I went to the Phoenix Pet Expo and had lots of wonderful conversations and of course met some great dogs and a random lamb. Be sure to watch the video. I also was able to get an update from Soldiers Best Friend who I met and interviewed last year. And to celebrate the life and humor of Douglas Adams, I started to put together this years Towel Day program. Lots to talk about so lets get to it!

We've been told over and over that we shouldn't confront or try and chase down someone who robs us. Do you think maybe the Loyal order of criminals #411 is behind this brainwashing? Now, I'm not advocating that we all become vigilantes but sometimes you have to wonder... Robber Chased by Dog and Dad is an example of how a thief was chased down by a dog and owner and finally stopped by a moving car.  Karma? Funny how our ability to connect on line with friends and family in order to be "social" have virtually created a culture where we are hard pressed to name our neighbors and their children. Here is a story about a social site focusing on the neighborhood and the benefits: Social Network Finds Lost Dog. Runners high... not just for humans: Dogs are Born to Run. Maybe this is the nudge we need to start training for that 5K. Who needs tags and microchips when you can train your pet to speak and memorize their address: Lost Pet Parakeet Returned After Telling Cops its Address. Also, this week is: Be Kind to Animals Week . So, take your dog out for a walk, surprise your kitty with catnip, let your birds stay up an extra hour, or consider going vegetarian for a day! Whatever you do have a great week!
