Blind Golden Retriever Gets Adorable Guide Dog Puppy Buddy to Help Him Get Around and Have Fun 

 

Tao is looking on the bright side thanks to his sunny pal.

According to Daily Mail, the 11-year-old golden retriever lost his eyesight last year to glaucoma, and eventually had both of his eyes removed because of the condition. Tao impressed everyone by quickly adjusting to life as a blind dog, learning his way around the house in just a few days, but his owner found that Tao was missing some of the playful energy he had prior to losing his eyesight.

In an effort to give Tao the best quality of life, the dog's owner, Melanie Jackson of Somerset, England, got Tao a puppy friend in hopes the little dog would help her senior pooch feel better and have more fun.

Your Cat Is Making Your Kids Stupid, Says Science 

 

For years, scientific studies have warned pregnant women about the possible effects of toxoplasmosis (a disease found in kitty litter) on their unborn child.

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention says that toxoplasmosis can lead to serious illnesses such as blindness, hearing loss, mental disabilities, and psychosis.

Most children do not show symptoms of toxoplasmosis. If they show any symptoms, they usually include swollen lymph glands, fatigue, and muscle aches.

In teens, it can cause chorioretinitis, which is a rare symptom that consists of blurred vision and dark spots floating in front of your child's eyes.

Scientists Rediscover Rare ‘Singing’ Dogs Thought to Have Gone Extinct 

 

A rare “singing” dog native to New Guinea was rediscovered in the wild after scientists had believed the breed had gone extinct for over 50 years.

The breed—known for its unique vocalizations similar to the song of the humpback whale—was first studied in 1897.

Researchers say that due to inbreeding in captivity and because both breeds were separated for several decades, the “singing” dog and the highland wild dog have no identical genomes. But this does not mean that they are different breeds.

"The New Guinea ‘singing’ dog that we know of today is a breed that was basically created by people," Dr. Elaine Ostrander, a distinguished investigator for the National Institutes of Health and senior author of the study, wrote.

Man knocked unconscious by falling cat while walking dog 

 

Guess they don’t always land on their feet.

A Chinese dog owner likely prefers pooches even more now, after he was knocked out cold by a falling cat, as seen in a viral video from Aug. 14.

In the 45-second CCTV footage, which currently has more than 120,000 views on YouTube, a man named Gao can be seen going for a stroll with his golden retriever in Harbin, Heilongjiang, local media outlet the Paper reports.

Then, out of nowhere, a black and white cat drops out of the sky and hits him on the head, causing him to collapse to the sidewalk unconscious.

Quarantine the cat? Disinfect the dog? The latest advice about the coronavirus and your pets 

 

When a Pomeranian in Hong Kong tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 last week, pets quickly became part of the coronavirus conversation. The case raised the alarming possibility that pets could become part of the transmission chain for the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2, which could potentially harm both them and us. But many questions remain about this possibility and how best to respond.

Q: Can pets serve as a reservoir of the virus and pass it back to us?

A: If pets can become infected—and we don’t know if they can—then yes, they could serve as a reservoir. And in that case, we’d need to deal with them the same way we’re dealing with human cases. We’d need to figure how to treat them. Like human hospitals, vet hospitals would have to be prepared for a surge in the number of cases.

Q: Would we quarantine our pets too?

A: Yes, just like humans, some might be quarantined at a hospital. Or a shelter. Or even a doggy day care. If they had the virus but weren’t sick, you could quarantine them at home. You’d want to limit your contact with them. Perhaps keep them in a bedroom away from other people and animals. You’d want to wash your hands frequently, and perhaps wear a mask when you entered the room.

A puppy went viral after people pointed out that he looks like both a cat and dog 

 

Some users thought that Dúi resembles a Hmong dog, which is an ancient breed native to northern Vietnam, according to Asian Life Magazine.

Dúi's owners, Hai Anh and Minh Tuan, told Bored Panda that they are unsure of the dog's exact mix.

"He is a mix of a native dog breed and a short-legged dog called Dingo," Hai Anh told Bored Panda. "But I think he might have a gene mutation, too. I bought him in a mountain province in Vietnam."

Pet Dog Mauls Elderly Man, Bites Off Arm Flesh Leaving Bone Exposed 

 

A dog mauled an elderly man and ripped off a "chunk of his arm," leaving his bone exposed during the savage attack. The incident took place last week in a park in Derby, England.

Charles Brown, 82, was left bleeding after the attack carried out by a "black, muscular Labrador." According to local media reports, the owner of the dog fled the scene when it attacked the man.

"He’s had his injections, you’ll be fine," the owner said as he ran from the site. Brown managed to call wife Ann, 74, who rushed him to a nearby hospital. Doctors told him he would require a skin graft to repair the damage.

"The force of the dog was indescribable and it knocked me over onto my back. My lower body is all bruised, my back is twisted, and the flesh of my arm was nowhere to be seen... I don’t know if the dog ate it or not, but it was gone, I remember laying in bed that evening and noticing how much flesh was gone," Brown said, according to U.K.'s Metro.

Pet Dog Mauled 2-Year-Old Boy To Death, Mother Charged With Reckless Homicide 

 

In a horrific incident, a pet dog mauled a 2-year-old to death in Louisville, Kentucky. On Tuesday, three people were indicted following the deadly dog attack.

The dog's owners — Jack Charpring Jr., 50, and Sharon Charpring, 53, — were charged with second-degree manslaughter in connection with the May 2 attack, according to Assistant Commonwealth's Attorney Jeff Cooke. The victim's mother, 25-year-old Jennifer Geiling, was charged with reckless homicide.

Authorities said the child was attacked by the dog in the Chickasaw neighborhood.

The coroner said the child died of blunt force injuries.

Pet Dog Mauls Schoolboy In Park, 10-Year-Old Left With Deep Wounds 

 

A large dog attacked a 10-year-old schoolboy while he was walking in a park in Greater Manchester, England. The boy was mauled by the Doberman-like dog Monday.

According to local reports, the child was left with deep wounds across his back after being savaged by the canine. George Parker was found covered in blood and was rushed to a hospital. His mother, Catherine O'Neill, told the Sun that she was distraught after seeing her son was brutally attacked by the dog.

"He had blood marks all over him. He lifted his top up and I saw all the scratches and cuts," the mother told Manchester Evening News. "He said he'd gone onto the field and asked the owner if he was friendly. The dog was off the lead... The children said it was a black and brown dog. I phoned 101. He was crying and was upset. He was a bit quiet, which is not like George."

The mother also added that the owner of the dog left the scene when the attack took place, leaving her son injured. The 34-year-old expressed concern that the attack might make her son fear dogs for life.

How Often Should You Wash Your Dog? 

 

Most dogs don’t require bathing more than every two weeks, according to Mark D. Freeman, DVM, an Assistant Professor at VA-MD College of Veterinary Medicine.”If they live in a clean environment, sometimes that number is even less,” Dr. Freeman says. That’s partly why the ASPCA thinks you can get away with bathing your dog as infrequently as once every three months. Dogs that spend time both indoors and outdoors, however, are more likely to need bathing every two weeks because they’re simply more likely to get dirty.

IS IT OKAY, PSYCHOLOGICALLY AND OTHERWISE, TO HAVE SEX IN THE SAME ROOM AS YOUR PET? 

 

Though it would be just swell to own an adorable corgi named Waffles, there are several reasons why I elect not to have a dog right now. Namely, I am not even 1 percent responsible enough for that. I can barely find the time to take care of myself, let alone set aside some Kibbles ‘n Bits, reserve a dog walker if I want to be out past 6 p.m., take necessary precautions to ensure the pup isn’t in the room (and, thus, irreparably scarred) every time I want to have sex, or, if the pet does walk in on it, make sure they don’t try to get in on the action.

Oh, don’t act like this hasn’t happened to you, pet owners. Every friend of mine who boldly shares a studio or one-bedroom apartment with their fur baby has at least one story about how it walked in on sex. What I’ve never learned, though, is intel on whether they kept going at it. Which brings up an interesting question: Is it…bad, or unadvisable for any reason if you have sex in the same room as your pet?

Well and Good
