It’s Friday the 7th of October, a beautiful day in the neighborhood, and here is the rest of the news from the animal world . . .
If they can’t convince you to buy their product, advertisers will try targeting your dog instead with sounds only he can hear. Play the video for your dog and see what kind of reaction happens . . . Be careful who or what follows your dog when you let him in. A Pennsylvania couple is lucky to be alive after a black bear chased their dog in to the house and then attacked the husband. The wife jumped to her husband’s defense – which led to all three of them, the humans and bear, beating the tar out of one another on the porch. “Eventually, the bear seemed to lose interest and wandered into the woods.” Lost interest? Huh . . . Have you seen the image of the tack filled cheese bits that’s been circulating around the social network space this week? There’s more to the story behind the images and it is creepy and bad, but not as terrifying for dog park denizens as purported . . . How old is your dog? Try using “fuzzy math” to figure it out . . . Fishermen beware: where you fish could make you more the prey and less the predator. Two Florida fishermen were attacked by sharks within a week and a half of each other . . . If you read this month’s Sit, Stay, READ! about how un-scary owls are realize I hadn’t read this article yet when I wrote mine. Who knew eagle owls hunted deer!?? That is one big bird . . . Considering the bad situation our pet horse population is coming to, this story about a car dealer who took a horse for a trade-in and then made sure it was re-homed is touching. What a great way to help out a family in need and save a horse at the same time! (check out this month’s Rescue of the Month – the The Grace Foundation of Northern California for more info on horse rescue)

Can you believe there is a bunny somewhere under all that fur? It is a giant Angora Rabbit . . . and not the world’s most adorable furry Roomba. About 10 lbs of bunniful goodness and 75 lbs of fur. Aren’t those ears the BEST?!
