Bits and Bobs from our Dog Agility Training Blog

Have you seen about the dog which was voted guide dog of the year... all the finalists were so worthy - but the one which won was the one which was so savagely attacked by a Rottweiller - yet Roz got her owner home safely afterwards.

It was subsequently touch and go whether her life could be saved at the vets, but thankfully all went well, and she slowly recovered, and is now back at work!

Not dogs, but whales - "In August 2007, less than a year after resuming a commercial whale hunt, Iceland announced that it would end the hunt. They listed low market demand and lack of access to the Japanese market for whale meat as reasons for the decision."

The above quote is from HSUS... get their free email newsletter to learn about more animal based campaigns and stories.

Visit The Wilderness Society to learn more about how the Bush Administration could be the reason the Northern Spotted Owl goes the same way as the Dodo.

Illegal logging, cheap wood, and extra demand for hardwood floors, are all having a detrimental effect on the habitat for many species, including tiger, jaguar, orangutans, and many more. Read more about it at the Defenders Organization
