  • 3 African Nationals Facing Charges In Western Pa. Internet Fraud Scheme

    SLIPPERY ROCK (KDKA) – Three African nationals from Cameroon are facing charges in an organized, intra-national internet fraud scheme uncovered in western Pennsylvania. According to police, large amounts of money were wired through Western Union and MoneyGram at various locations in Butler, Lawrence and Mercer counties. Authorities say among the allegedly crimes, the men were selling boxer puppies online out of a student housing complex in Slippery Rock. Police say the total is at least $20,000, but it is expected to grow. “We have at least 10 victims, and we’re expecting a lot more,” said Pennsylvania State Police Trooper James...

    A puppy outfitted with a backpack of explosives serves as a cruel reminder that ISIS is seeking innovative ways to cause mass casualties. Video surfaced this week appearing to show a pup quivering in fear as fighters from the Popular Mobilization Forces describe their discovery. The PMU militia – backed by the Iraqi government – told a camera how they deactivated the remote-controlled explosives – saving themselves and the dog. “What was this animal’s crime?” the fighters ask, according to a translation from Metro U.K. “ISIS booby traps (animals) and send them out against us.”

    The hunters searching for mammoth tusks were drawn to the steep riverbank by a deposit of ancient bones. To their astonishment, they discovered an Ice Age puppy’s snout peeking out from the permafrost. Five years later, a pair of puppies perfectly preserved in Russia’s far northeast region of Yakutia and dating back 12,460 years has mobilised scientists across the world. “To find a carnivorous mammal intact with skin, fur and internal organs - this has never happened before in history,” said Sergei Fyodorov, head of exhibitions at the Mammoth Museum of the North-Eastern Federal University in the regional capital of...

    The trouble began the first hour Eevee was in our house. We tried to put her in the crate, which something Lambic never minded, so we could eat lunch, but Eevee wouldn't stop crying and barking. During her first two weeks with us, we slept with pillows over our heads to drown out her barking at bedtime. I work from home most days and thought that would make housetraining easier, but I soon realized it made it harder because there was no set schedule or routine for Eevee. Some days she wouldn’t go in the crate at all. Other days...

    Alex Dennison and Ashley Lewis should have listened to people. The Australian couple adopted their German Shepherd, Nasra, when she was eight weeks old. The pair were frequently stopped on the street by strangers who complimented the beautiful canine while telling them that, based on the size of her paws and head, she was going to be a big girl. Dennison and Lewis usually laughed off the warnings. They did, however, create a growth chart by photographing Nasra every month. In the series, the first image starts with Lewis comfortably cradling Nasra to the latest image where the dog is...

  • Nobody can resist petting a litter of wriggly puppies... not even this MONKEY

    The only thing cuter than a litter of puppies may be a little monkey going gaga over a bunch of newborn pups. A video of a capuchin monkey after its introduced to a gaggle of black and white puppies that have yet to even open their eyes proves it. Like any human pet lover, the monkey immediately goes in for a big hug. He then pets the pups just like a kid who's just gotten his first dog. Minus a brief moment where the monkey appears to search one of the dog's fur for parasites, its reaction is indiscernible from...

As long as you stick to a pretty decent doggy diet, everything should be gravy right? Wrong. Turns out there's a ton of foods you probably didn't know about that can actually be really bad for your dog, including some that are perfectly healthy for humans. After all, there's nothing worse than having your dog suffer over a simple mistake in diet. While they're still man's best...
