    Last night when I returned from work at 11pm,my husband informed me that one of our mini schnauzers had gone missing. We went out looking for her around town. After about thirty minutes of this aimless driving and looking to no avail,we came upon the town cop.We debated stopping and telling him what we were doing. We decided in the end to do so. After telling him,he said nothing more than he would keep his eye out for her;we went off in one direction to keep looking and he left in the other. We kept coming back to the house...

    I decided to have my own little "FReepathon" in memory of my beloved furry family member Kitty. She died on Thursday, December 16, 2010, just after 9:30 am. Some of you probably saw my thread when I self diagnosed her with CRF (I was vetless at the time). Turned out my little 19 year old Kitty had a urinary tract, as well as a kidney infection, which she apparently was too old and too tired to fight. This is my proposal, in which I came up with because of you, my fellow FReepers. I asked for help and info. So...

    Macha is one of those once-in-a-lifetime pets — a tall, lean, savvy dog who lives to hunt pheasant. Out in the field, the Labrador retriever is so focused that she shuns pats from her Woodland Park owner, Tom Bulloch. “She doesn’t want her line of vision obstructed,” he explains. Macha, who can run like the wind, was named after a mythological Irish goddess who was faster than any man or beast. Read more: http://www.gazette.com/articles/pets-110435-pain-lifetime.html#ixzz19nXnqJSS frpa ....“At the time I thought, ‘aren’t stem cells illegal or a political problem?’” Bulloch says.

    For Christmas this year, Chris Cooley gave a stranger a generous gift in exchange for something he considers priceless. When someone called him on Christmas Eve and said he'd found his missing golden retriever, the Cotulla rancher promptly handed over the $10,000 he'd sworn as reward money for whomever returned his dog, Jim Bowie. The dog was stolen last week along with Cooley's pickup and trailer from the Bass Pro Shop parking lot off of Interstate 10. Home again for the holidays, Jim Bowie tore through Cooley's North Side home Saturday, a boisterous reunion that proved more than a Christmas...

The portly pussycat passed away in his sleep Sunday just days after he was diagnosed with heart disease, his owner said. “We’re all upset,” said Vince Damiani, 20, of Blackwood, N.J. “We lost a family member.” Chunk became an international sensation two years ago when he was discovered wandering the streets of Voorhees, N.J., and was dropped off at the Camden County Animal Shelter.

    For the last couple of months, I thought my elder kitty was just going senile. She turned 19 this summer and has the usual "old cat" look....frail back and hind legs, loss of muscle and weight and just looks "old". She also started tinkling and pooping outside her liter box and seemed obsessed with her water bowl (hovering over it for hours). She has hip dysplasia and "old cat back", which cortisone shots took care of 2-3 years ago, then they stopped working. I found Syn-Flex for pets online and she made a miraculous recovery.

    It had been almost twelve years before I got baby pains again—at 49, that was a dangerous thing. Considering that we have had a toddler in the house every two years since the late 70s, it shouldn’t have surprised anyone. My husband has always had a soft spot for brown-eyed puppies, and blue-eyed babies. So, he really wasn’t a tough sell when I told him I wanted to adopt. I had forgotten how hard it was to keep up with a ball of energy bouncing around the house, looking for something to get into. Nothing in the house was safe,...

    According to the Guardian UK, Britain's Special Air Service (SAS) has been unleashing highly trained dogs of war to help gather video surveillance of Taliban strongholds and suspected insurgent safe havens. Using a technique reportedly pioneered by U.S. special forces, these German shepherds are strapped to British paratroopers chests as they drop behind enemy lines in Afghanistan. Live video captured by the dogs' head-mounted cameras feeds back information to base. In addition, these elite canine soldiers are trained to attack armed people on the ground as well. During these missions, eight of the military dogs have reportedly been killed in...

A new product called “Rear Gear” protects your dog from “feeling left in the dirt because of his/her unsightly rear.” Not sure who is going to actually buy this product, nor the psychological profile of the individual who had this idea. But if there is one thing in can say is that, yes, this is one of those rare instances where words fail.

    A nine-year-old boy didn't know he was allergic to bees, but his 18-week-old dog could sense this. When the boy was attacked by a swarm of bees, it was the pup that took charge and saved the boy from a possible severe reaction. Richie didn't know he was allergic to bees until he was stung on his feet while outside playing with his puppy Pinky. The pup seemed to have a sixth sense and knew that Richie not only had an allergy, but he also had a blood condition that didn't allow his blood to clot properly. Both these issues...

    Ratue was already very thin due to her terminal illness; a disease in the blood, most likely from a parasite. She no longer had the energy to eat food, much less properly digest it, so the body had to survive the only way it could: by devouring her own fat and muscle tissue. Organ failure began to set in around 5:50 in the afternoon on Sunday, August the 23rd, 2010. When I heard my stepmother wailing over Ratue's deteriorating condition, I bore witness to what would be the cat's final hour. She was disoriented and confused. Whenever she tried to...

    All cats may have nine lives, but Christopher, an orange and white tabby who lives at a Redwood City veterinary clinic, also has a sixth sense. Dubbing him a "guardian angel," "wonder cat" and "miracle kitty," the staff and volunteers at the Nine Lives Foundation's Feline Well-Care Clinic say Christopher can tell when other cats need help. He will sit outside the cages of sick felines until someone lets him in, and last month, the clinic says, he saved the life of a kitten in need of a blood transfusion.

The "puppy-friendly pet store" pledge is being promoted by the Humane Society of the United States, the country's largest animal advocacy organization.
