Battle Of The Breeds
World Record Corner
An Australian Cattle-dog named Bluey, owned by Les hall of Rochester, Victoria, Australia, was obtained as a puppy in 1910 and worked among cattle and sheep for nearly 20 years. He was put to sleep on November 14, 1939 at the age of 29 years, 5 months
Dog Tricks "Crawl"
Want to teach your dog crawl? Here's how! First, get a package of treats. Then, get your dog to lie down. If your dog doesn't know lie down, you'll have to teach him/her. Then, put the treat in front of it's nose, not too close. Your dog will want the treat, and crawl for it. Even if your dog crawls a few centimetres, praise it. If your dog tries to stand up when you put the treat in front of it's nose, say "no" and try the trick again. I hope this works!! ☺

Dog Rescues Baby Kangaroo
A pointer mix, named Rex rescued an orphaned 4-month-old kangaroo on Easter Sunday. The mother kangaroo had sadly died after getting hit by a car, and somehow Rex found the baby kangaroo in the mothers pouch. Rex carried the kangaroo in his mouth all the way back home, then dropped him at his owners feet. The kangaroo was taken to the Wildlife Sanctuary where he will be old enough to live on his own in the wild. ♥
What am I thinking?
A peice of grass a day, keeps the vet away
Respect your dog: Let sleeping dogs lie.
Pets go to the vet more than people go to doctors?
About 96 percent of pet owners take their pet to the veterinarian for routine care at least once a year, according to a poll of 4,000 Veterinary Pet Insurance (VPI) policyholders and website visitors. Forty-three percent make multiple visits during the year.
In comparison, 83 percent of adults in the United States had contact with a healthcare professional within the year, according to a 2005 survey by the Center for Disease Control.
