This is such a cool idea. British artist, Jason de Caires Taylor, made an underwater sculpture, “The Silent Evolution”, using materials that encourage coral growth on the sea bed, forming a new home for aquatic creatures to live and roam.

“Every college student has stress around finals,” said Bliss, who came up with the idea of dog visits after participating in a similar program as an undergraduate at New York University. “And taking a break out from that with something as easy and simple and loving as petting dogs is really helpful.” AP

This is appalling. Tony the tiger, a Bengal-Siberian mix, lives at a truck stop in Gross Tete, LA. Literally.
Forced to live in a concrete cage, Tony has had to endure the loud noises and smoke from trucks that pass through, not to mention all of the other psychological damage that comes with being imprisoned one’s entire life.
Tony’s owner Michael Snadlin’s permit was recently due and, though the law says that it is illegal to own or display exotic animals, when Sandlin was asked to find Tony a new home, he instead filed a lawsuit. Inexplicably, the courts decided to amend the ordinance, making it legal for Sandlin to keep a tiger, instead of enforcing the law.
Check out the video above to see the conditions Tony’s being subjected to. It’s tragic.

Bruce Littlefield has written The Bedtime Book For Dogs (Grand Central, June 2011), about a dog who decides that he’d rather walk to the park by himself than wait for his human companion–and discovers that all of his usual activities aren’t as much fun without a good friend to share them with.
(This actually happened to my dog!)
The book is filled with words your dog will understand like, “come,” “sit,” “stay” and “treat.”
