Einbender began her Cones of Fame project to help dogs get adopted at Chicago’s One Tail at a Time, as well as to highlight the importance of spaying and neutering pets a cone-worthy procedure for furry friends.
After she and volunteers designed and crafted the stylish cones, she photographed adoptable pups at One Tail at a Time wearing them. For example, here’s Ellie wearing the “Bubblegum” model.
Most dogs truly do love their owners, but do you know what they love more? The beach.
A couple was preparing for a trip to the beach when their dogs got a little bit too eager and accidentally dragged their owner right off her front porch.
“They get excited when they know they are going in the RV and my wife thought she could handle the two Great Danes,” one of the dog owners wrote. “They were on a special leash where they are on one leash together and they pulled her off the front porch and ran to the RV.”
To make matters worse, their Jack Russell followed the Danes, and ran right past the woman after she was pulled from the porch.
The woman suffered a broken bone in her elbow, but the owners did say that the last dog on the porch did eventually check on the poor woman and licked her face.
It’s that time of year again. Temperatures are rising, the sun is spending a little more time outside, and pets everywhere are making the world more glamorous with their summer haircuts.
Now, not all pets need a summer cut. Many shed naturally in the summer anyway, and a multi-layered coat often serves as insulation to help them stay cool. But in some cases, a trim helps with the added bonus of being extremely cute.
Scientists tracked dogs’ behavior changes when presented with pop, Motown, soft rock, reggae and classical music.
But just because most dogs jam to Bob Marley doesn’t mean that your pup is not a sensitive soul that prefers Fiona Apple.
“Overall, the response to different genres was mixed highlighting the possibility that, like humans, our canine friends have their own individual music preferences,” said Professor Neil Evans in a statement.
Evans also notes that the dogs were more likely to lying down while any music, regardless of genre was playing.
Scientists, please find a way to relay the concept of dancing to dogs. This is urgent.
India’s apex court has weighed in resoundingly on a petitioner who wanted all stray dogs killed. It has observed that “nobody can destroy stray dogs in entirety. They also have a right to live,” the Press Trust of Indiareported.
However, a methodical culling is possible, it has said.
The apex court has been hearing a series of petitions filed by NGOs and civic bodies across the country on stray dogs that have become a menace, especially in the southern Indian state of Kerala.
The bench informed that a panel headed by a former Kerala High Court judge had received around 400 matters related to dog bites and it was working on it. Some deaths have also been reported.
In September last year the Supreme Court had called for compassion towards street dogs. But it had also warned, “These animals cannot be allowed to become a menace to the society. A balance needs to be created for dealing with such situation.
In Kerala, one of the petitioners is reportedly building dog shelters in his area and has been asked by the apex court to submit a concrete proposal.
Most Indians seem unhappy with the “poor judgement” though. They lashed out at the Supreme Court for not valuing human lives.

Christmas is a hard time for so many creatures, hoomins and non-hoomins alike.
These shelter dogs from the Animal Rescue League of Iowa had the time of their lives, however, when staff members allowed them to select a special Christmas toy from underneath the shelter’s Tree of Life.” The shelter sets up the tree every year to help benefit the animals.
