Holiday Gifting for pets knows no limits...and some "perhaps sniffing a possible promotion, even get Secret Santa gifts for the boss’ dog." Pets are Family - Naughty or Nice? Apparently there are no bad pets -- and Santa knows...
For a memorable - truly tasteless holiday gift, go here... puts the gag in gift... trust me... GAG (due mid dec.)

- Pudgy people and pudgy pets share one thing in common. Both are prone to becoming Diabetic. And Diabetes is a growing problem in both cats and dogs.
The increase, according to Vets, is related to the large quantity and poor quality of the diet and....lack of exercise.
Recommendation for Cats: Put tabby on a restricted diet and enforce a play time. A novel suggestion from one veterinarian: hide the food to force the cat to hunt...
Will it work...??Does it work when you are hungry and someone hides your food from you?
Recommendation for Dogs: Walks.
- Dogs have a new best friend. Willie Nelson has stepped up to the plate to speak out against
Dog fighting in Georgia. PSA's should be airing soon.
- The answer is Yes. The question? Can Elephants play Jingle Bells? Listen.
Left over pie? Keep an eye on the Turkey.

- A Swan and her Beau (t) - Petra is tagging along with her boat again this winter.
- Given the option to choose a home... this dog chose the vet who neutered him. Fortunately, the first owner agreed.
- Turkey and Dogs - a winning combo? We'll know soon.
- Wanted: A Bear - who knows how to drive.
Talking Cats -- the translated version...

Bottom line: It costs too much to save an oil coated bird...
That verdict is hard to swallow... But here it is... (not from me) an argument that saving bird lives is a waste of dollars given the cost of clean up versus - the likelihood they are just going to die anyway.
Wow. What does that say about us? Can't we work on improving our clean-up methods to make them more cost effective...and efficient? Does anyone at the top of the corporate food chain care about environmental fallout or will abandoned oil soaked birds and wildlife become another example of those deemed necessary losses by a throw away society?
*Volunteers who showed up to help with clean up on the recently soiled California beaches were sent home - they lacked credentials now required for anyone involved in a hazardous waste cleanup...

There are no easy answers - but advocating a death sentence in order to protect the bottom line reveals a character with very little sense of accountability or stewardship, let alone compassion or value for the individual lives jacked up and/or lost as a result of the inadvertent derailment of someone else's bankroll.

It is so amazing to watch a big cat swim, especially when that big cat is a White Tiger.
And now - Here to kick of the retail season of beating the crowd (over the head) with the Holiday Greetings - Singing Cats.

A chimp who enlightened many by learning sign language has died. Washoe was amazing.
If you have ever wanted to toilet train your cat...here's how.
Do you and your pet have the same sense of humor...??
- A lot of people who have fish say they do! The study - the first of its kind, says the longer a pet is with an owner, the more likely they are to share common personality traits. The study is still in progress. * Source - ABC News
