They can go surfing!
Special thanks to Pat Kiernan, the source for all the best news, for pointing out this phenomenon.
What do dogs do when they want to meet other dogs? They go on doggie dating sites, of course.
Find My Dog a Date helps dogs in the Phoenix area find play dates. Just like on regular dating sites, they have profiles that can be searched for various criteria.
Normally I would advocate for equal treatment for cats, and a corresponding Find My Cat a Date site, but I don’t think most cats are really very interested in making love connections.
I know this is a cat news blog, and I know this isn’t even “news,” but I remembered it this morning and couldn’t help post about it. It’s the work of photographer Erwin Fichou.
Fichou photographs dog owners wearing garments made from their dog’s fur. There are definitely people out there who make/wear things made from their cat’s fur, too, but I’ve yet to see a set of photographs of them as awesome as these.
It’s rare that a dog story makes me cry like a cat story. But this one did.
Max, a springer spaniel who for years worked as a police dog sniffing out drugs, was put down last week after being diagnosed with aggressive nose cancer. He had retired last year after arthritis led to him being fitted with a trolley to get around, but he still enjoyed visiting the police station. As his owner said, “He was a fighter until the end and always very dignified. He has had a good life and a successful one as a police dog. Just think of all the bad people he managed to put away.”
