The unlikely friendship between a golden retriever and flock of fluffy chicks is revealed in a series of close-up photos
Los Angeles-based photographer Candice Sedighan, 21, decided to demonstrate just how ‘gentle’ her pet dog Champ is, by letting him loose with a group of newly-hatched birds.
In one of her images the canine is seen patiently modeling a top hat and, incredibly, a little yellow chick perches on top wearing a matching piece of miniature head gear.

Miss Sedighan said the chick’s hat came from a Lego set.
She taped the accessory to string and balanced it over the animal’s head to give the appearance of it being worn.
In another shot Champ is is seen lovingly nuzzling his newfound friends – which were rescued from a hatchery – being careful not to squash them with his paws or torso.

Play nice now! Miss Sedighan decided to demonstrate just how ‘gentle’ her pet dog Champ is, by letting him loose with a group of newly-hatched birds
Miss Sedighan said that ‘this didn’t happen overnight’ and it took years of training to make Champ well-tempered.
She explains on Facebook: ‘There was an incident years ago when my parakeet got loose in the house and Champ "caught it" for me, resulting in an emergency visit to the vet and some stitches for the poor bird.
‘With years of training and our ever growing trust, here he is with some baby chicks.

Well-trained: Miss Sedighan said that ‘this didn’t happen overnight’ and it took a longtime to make Champ well-tempered – she started photographing him eight years ago when he was aged three
‘The chicks seemed to really like to burrow in his fur for some extra warmth!’
Miss Sedighan started taking pictures of Champ eight years ago when he was aged three and now he has become the star of her Facebook and Instagram feeds.
Along with chicks he has also posed up with babies and most recently butterflies – even allowing one to perch on the end of his nose.
Some commenters have accused Miss Sedighan of Photoshopping her images as they have an almost ‘unreal’ quality.
However, the young photographer says in defense that she just has an ‘an extraordinary trained model.’

Doris Day is turning 90, and her own Cypress Inn of Carmel will celebrate in myriad ways
Learn more about Day’s love for and projects on behalf of animals at: Doris Day Animal League
MAJOR MOVIE STARS… often become synonymous with particular film genres or eras or style of film-making. Certain fashion trends may be tied to them as well, and even fads, from time to time. Doris Day can check several of those things off her list, given that we love the actress for her sparkly turn in ’50s charmers like "Pillow Talk," optimistic romantic comedies that stylishly led the way for all romcoms (romantic comedies) to come. But Ms. Day isn’t just about those mid-century gems nor romantic banner; she’s a co-owner of the Cypress Inn in Carmel and a longtime resident of the area. And, of course, a major animal advocate. Her Cypress Inn and her advocacy have dovetailed over the years, making her property extremely pet friendly and a place that California canine lovers and fans of Doris Day films vow to visit at least once. And if ever the time was ripe for such a visit, it’s now: Ms. Day is turning 90, and there are a few treats in store ’round the historic pup-loving property.
LIKE… a Sentimental Journey weekend, from Thursday, April 3 through Saturday, April 5. A room, a welcome gift bag, and a spot on the wait list for her official birthday dinner are part of the package. But if you can’t make the weekend, you can swing by the inn’s bar and order a Bourbon & Bone, the cocktail created in honor of her birthday. Yep, your pup gets a chew toy and you get an adult beverage and best of all? The $9.90 you spend on the special drink — "90" again being the theme — goes to Ms. Day’s work with animals, rescues, and spay and adoption efforts.
EVEN IF YOU CAN’T… be around Carmel on April 3, which is the legend’s birthday proper, a trip to the Cypress Inn, with your hound at your side, is a quintessential overnight for those Golden Staters who love cinema history as well as their four-footed friends.

DogTime: Thursday March 13th, 2014 - While veteran Justin Lansford of Silver Spring, Md., served as a paratrooper in Afghanistan, he was struck by an improvised explosive device (IED) and lost his leg as a result.
“We struck an IED and it flipped my truck completely,” Lansford tells ABC News. “I had bilaterally severed femurs which resulted in the amputation of my left leg.”
As Lansford recuperated at the Walter Reade National Military Medical Center, he got a visit from the Warrior Canine Connection (WCC), an organization that pairs wounded veterans with trained service dogs.
“He helps me with one thing to the next. I can use him as a stable surface to lean on, as I get to and from the ground,” Lansford says of Gabe. “If I fall, he’ll come up running next to me and I can use him to push off of the get up off the ground.”
Gabe has provided both guidance and friendship as Lansford becomes more mobile.
“The less I use my wheelchair, the more I need his help in smaller tasks and the more he is there,” Lansford tells ABC News of Gabe. “It has been very comforting to know that.”
It seems that Gabe was always destined to work with wounded warriors. Before he began his life with Justin Lansford, Gabe was helping U.S. Army veteran and Colorado Springs, Colo., resident Spencer Milo, who suffers from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
“I was on a dismount patrol on the Afghanistan/Pakistan border. I see a kid, you know 15-years-old, a suicide bomber. You knew what it was,” Milo recalls. “I just remember a big, loud noise, a big flash. And I remember landing.”
Milo survived the blast, but wasn’t left unscathed. He says he could hardly get through his normal daily activities sometimes.
“It was really hard to go back into public without being so on edge that it made others uncomfortable. I’d sweat profusely and I’d be incredibly grumpy,” says Milo.
Milo’s doctors suggested he work with the Warrior Canine Connection to help train and socialize one of their new puppies — Gabe. The experience with Gabe changed the trajectory of Milo’s life.
“And once I started working with Gabe, I started feeling like myself again,” Milo explains. “My family, my wife started seeing me again, and that’s incredible. You can’t put that into words.”
After Gabe’s training period with Milo, Milo had to say goodbye and hadn’t seen Gabe since. But recently, Milo traveled all the way to Silver Spring for a happy reunion, and to meet the veteran who is benefitting from all of Milo’s hard work — Justin Lansford.
“I owe everything to Gabe,” says Milo. “I would jump in front of a bus for Gabe, and I know he would do the same for me. And I know he’d do the same for Justin.”
Lansford says he was equally excited to meet the man who helped make Gabe such a great service dog and friend.
“I have really had a chance to say thank you to Spencer for working with Gabe and getting Gabe to a point where he could work and help me. Being able to see Spencer face to face has been awesome,” says Lansford.
WCC is hoping to make experiences like the one with Lansford, Milo, and Gabe a regular part of caring for our nation’s veterans. The organization is using the latest science and research to prove that working with dogs helps veterans with PTSD and traumatic brain injuries. For more information on WCC, their amazing work, or their dogs, check out the Warrior Canine Connection website.

By NICK WINGFIELD - The New York Times: A half-century ago, dogs lived in barns or backyards, domiciled in shabby little doghouses. Now they have the run of our houses and apartments. They sleep in our beds (full disclosure). In some cases, they are considered by their owners to be like children, and possibly a bit cleaner.
So it is not so strange that the connected technologies that are creeping into the lives of humans are doing the same for pets.
Wearable pet activity trackers keep tabs on Bella’s or Bear’s exercise. Some go further, monitoring dogs’ heart and respiratory rates and tracking locations in case they escape their homes. Webcams allow people who are away from home to monitor, communicate and play games with their pets, breaking up the monotony of lonely days.
What’s making all these devices possible is an abundance of increasingly inexpensive miniature components created for the smartphone business: wireless chips, motion sensors and high-resolution camera lenses that can be jammed into pet-friendly devices. Smartphone apps, meanwhile, are giving people a way to visualize the biometric data these devices collect and to snoop on pet behavior from anywhere with a wireless connection.
These device manufacturers are chasing the growing pile of money people are lavishing on animals. Total annual spending on pets in this country, including food, veterinary care and medicine, more than tripled over the past two decades to $55.5 billion last year, according to the American Pet Products Association.
The tighter bond between household animals and the people formerly known as owners has established pet wellness as a serious business, and tech firms are taking note.
“It is the idea of being able to interact with your pet in a more meaningful way,” said Con Slobodchikoff, an emeritus professor of biology at Northern Arizona University. “Right now, pretty much all people have is voice to interact with their pets or touch. People want more.”
Heidi Hurn recently clipped one of these gadgets, the Whistle Activity Monitor, to the collar of Hoosier, her 11-year-old chocolate Labrador retriever. This $130 brushed metal device, about the dimensions of a ketchup bottle cap, records when he is active, for how long and at what intensity level. It is the canine equivalent of the Jawbone UP, a fitness tracker that Ms. Hurn bought for her fiancé.
Through an app on her iPhone, Ms. Hurn, 32, who works in medical device sales in Seattle, can see a bar chart showing how hard and for how long her dog walker is exercising Hoosier. She can see how active he is when she and her fiancé are not at home. (Revealed: Hoosier is sacked out from five minutes after they leave until the moment they get home.)
Ms. Hurn said she and her fiancé got the device because Hoosier’s veterinarian emphasized that keeping him active is likely to extend his life. She said the detailed logs of his exercise make the couple feel more responsible.
“We are very attentive parents,” she said. “He’s our only child.”
Nick Wingfield/The New York Times Mitzi takes the Whistle Activity Monitor out for a spin.
I, too, recently put a Whistle on the collar of Mitzi, my 5-year-old pit bull/Labrador retriever mix. After a few days, I was able to compare her activity level to other mixed-breed dogs. I felt small glow of pride when the Whistle app sent me a congratulatory text after Mitzi surpassed her daily exercise goal four days in a row.
More wearable tech for pets is on the way. Already on sale is a collar device called Tagg that combines activity monitoring with location tracking to help recover lost pets. Voyce, an activity tracker available later this year, also monitors a dog’s heart and respiratory rates.
“We really see ourselves as the wellness coach for the life of the dog,” said Jeff Noce, president of i4C Innovations, the maker of Voyce.
It’s possible the data from these devices could eventually help medical researchers better understand pet ailments. According to a 2012 study commissioned by the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention, more than 52 percent of dogs and more than 58 percent of cats are overweight or obese, conditions which can lead to diabetes and worsen arthritis.
A 14-year study commissioned by Purina, the pet food company, found that a dog’s median life span can be extended by 15 percent by restricting the diet to maintain ideal weight, or almost two years for the Labrador retrievers in the survey. Veterinarians have used expensive motion sensors for years to study pet activity levels, but they say the new devices aimed at pet owners have the potential to be used far more broadly.
“I’m very excited about the activity monitors,” said Dr. Ernie Ward, a veterinarian and founder of the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention.
Nick Wingfield/The New York Times Mitzi’s walks, naps and playtime are logged on Whistle’s app.
The solitude of pets is another concern that technology is tackling. Many animals spend hours alone at home while their owners are at the office. Separation anxiety, lack of exercise and other factors can lead to destructive tendencies.
Dropcam is a wireless security camera that can also be used as a pet monitor. It has a microphone and speaker so people can both speak to and hear their pets via a mobile app. I used a Dropcam to spy on Mitzi, who had positioned herself on a couch in my living room while I was out of the house.
Through the speaker, I ordered her down. She cocked her head like the RCA dog and stared at the camera — and didn’t move. I’m hoping for an update of the product that includes pet obedience.
A device called PetCube(s), coming out in May, combines a webcam, microphone and speakers with a low-intensity laser pointer, the direction of which can be controlled remotely through a smartphone. Owners will be able to play games with their cats and dogs using the laser, assuming the animals are receptive to the idea of chasing a bright red light around a room.
People will be able to invite Facebook friends to play with their pets, too, by sharing access to their PetCubes.
While cats seem to pursue lasers without problems, Dr. Margaret Gruen, a veterinary behaviorist at North Carolina State University, said using a laser pointer with dogs could lead them to become shadow and light chasers, a compulsive behavior. Dr. Gruen said it was unclear what effect owners talking to their pets through a webcam could have.
“When they can’t see them, will that be confusing or comforting?” she said. “I don’t think we know yet.”
There are effective medications and behavior changes for treating separation anxiety in pets, and playing classical music while an owner is gone can relax dogs, too, Dr. Gruen said. While it isn’t clear yet whether these new technologies actually improve the lives of pets, they are certainly likely to answer the emotional needs of many pet parents. Remember the Baby Einstein DVDs, said to enhance the intellectual development of infants?
“There’s this industry that springs up around selling highly specialized products that will allow you to feel like you’re doing a better job of parenting,” said Aaron Easterly, the chief executive of the dog-sitting website Rover.com. “It’s really the exact same pitch for these products.”

So what the heck is going on in Arizona? Vicious wild Chihuahuas? They are Chihuahuas for God sake… Why didn’t they notice this sooner? And as for Chihuahuas nipping people, even at kids… really? A big deal? Not so much in my book… And terrorizing neighborhoods? Again, really? A bit of a stretch I’d say, but cops say wild packs of Chihuahuas are causing quite a problem. So lets all dig in and help out…
Video: Chihuahuas running wild in Maryvale, Arizona - The original video was removed…
Animal Control needs public’s help wrangling Chihuahuas running loose in Maryvale
According to the Maricopa County Animal Care and Control, the little ones have been breeding indiscriminately with each other and now have been overrunning residential areas.
"Part of it is these animals aren’t spayed or neutered, so they’re out looking for a mate and having babies, which also contributes to the problem," stated a representative from Animal Control.
Authorities believe the high number of foreclosures and undocumented workers forced to leave Arizona when the economy crashed, has caused the overpopulation of the small breed.
Sadly, chihuahuas are the most popular breed at the Arizona shelters.
Chihuahuas are the smallest breed of dogs, and named for the state of Chihuahua in Mexico, although some experts argue that the breed originated in China and were brought over by Spanish traders.
The adorable little breed, with varied temperaments and intense loyalties toward their humans, were made popular by Paris Hilton and her famous "chi" named Tinkerbell.
Residents are urged to safely corral the little dogs if at all possible, and then call Animal Control.
While chihuahuas may not be a popular breed in Maricopa County, many city dwellers in New York City find the adorable little ones perfect for apartment living.
As Bob Barker has been repeating for years and years, please spay and neuter your pets.

If you possibly can, please help by adopting at least one, by donating for others to adopt and by helping to get them spayed and neutered. There is always room for just one more pet… just one more Chihuahua, they are small… but be prepared, some are feisty.
If everyone that can adopted just one more pet and then acted responsibly, there would be no more homeless pets and no pets euthanized needlessly!!

Puppies rely on us to make informed decisions. Image Copr. Fernanda Cerioni/Flickr
Yes, actually, there are and that may surprise you. It did me. After all, we’ve heard from animal welfare advocates for years preaching the gospel of spay/neuter. Heck, I preached this myself and for the majority of dogs and cats (ESPECIALLY cats!), “the big fix” is the best thing that ever happens to them.
There’s new evidence, though, that for dogs at least the pros and cons are not so black and white. While the University of Georgia’s sample of 40,139 canine death records from the Veterinary Medical Database from 1984-2004 concluded that neutered dogs could be expected to live a year and a half longer (on average) than intact dogs, other studies point out potential increases in hip dysplasia or cancer. Oy.
So what’s a responsible pet parent to do? One possible solution is a new non-surgical sterilization technique called Zeuterin from Ark Sciences, that renders the boy dogs incapable of fathering puppies but let’s them keep about 50 percent of their testosterone that makes a beneficial health difference especially in certain breeds.
Read my newest article of Zeuterin and Pros/Cons of Neutering here. My best recommendation is to find out everything you can, consult with your vet, and only then make an informed decision. What do you think? Go ahead and comment–let ‘er rip! *s*
Amy is so right, spay/neutering is not a cut and dry proposition… no pun intended! JOMP!

One of the many dark tales coming out of Sochi is the revelation that Russian authorities have been executing stray dogs. US Olympic skier Gus Kenworthy plans to do something about it by saving them.
American Olympic skier Gus Kenworthy and Russian billionaire Oleg Deripaska are doing their part to save the stray dogs in Sochi
Obviously, people were outraged when they heard about the killings. Oleg Deripaska, one of the wealthiest men in Russia, was so upset by this that he took it upon himself to save as many as he could. He used his fortune to build shelters for the strays in Baranovka, which is near Sochi.
Kenworthy expected to be on his way home with the pups by now but has been delayed by paperwork problems in Russia?!?
Some of the the dogs are being adopted by Olympics fans and heading to new homes. According to ABC News on Tuesday the process of American fans adopting a dog is being helped by the Humane Society International.
Outlining all the requirements for moving a dog from one country to another, it seems that finding a local Russian vet is the fastest way to get help in seeing if Fido can come home. Getting all the shots necessary for the pup to leave the country is the first step. Plus a kennel needs to be acquired for the flight of an animal if they are going to be shipped on an airplane. The process of owning a Russian dog might be costly with just the airplane ride being $150 for the canine’s travels to their new home.
Russian billionaire Oleg Deripaska stepped in before the Olympics and opened a mountain refuge for some dogs to hang out, but the issue still isn’t resolved. Fans worry that after the athletes leave the dogs could be left out to roam again or worse.
Offering up assistance to help adopt dogs seems like a logical solution at the moment and if fans are willing to take a new four legged friend home, it might be the perfect answer to helping some of the dogs.

What exactly is BSL?
My Pit Bull Friend: BSL is an abbreviation for Breed Specific Legislation. Not only is this Legislation targeting specific breeds of dog, but dogs that appear to have characteristics of certain breeds. Your dogs may not even be close to what is on the ban list but may be affected negatively nonetheless. In Iowa, a Pit Bull is defined as “any dog that is an American Pit Bull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier, Staffordshire Bull Terrier, or any dog displaying the majority of physical traits of any one or more of the above breeds (more so than any other breed), or any dog exhibiting those distinguishing characteristics.”
Pit Bull type breeds are included in every single breed restriction or ban that has been set in place by each region that has implemented a legislation, every single one! This ban affects dogs all around the world. These bans and restrictions around the world vary from region to region but the effect that it’s having on these dogs is very real.
The following are some of the legislation requirements that you must follow depending upon the region your are in:
Must not own, sell, harbor, breed, keep a Pit Bull type dog.
Leash and or muzzle your dog when in public.
Must be 21 years of age or older
Post “Beware of Dog” signs around your residence.
Procure $100,000 US in liability insurance.
Spay/neuter the dog.
Must surrender the dog to be euthanized if it has bitten a person or animal.
Everyday, Pit Bulls are being killed due to legislation. In the areas where these dogs are illegal to have, there are many people that have no choice but to relocate their dogs within a certain time frame or give them up where they eventually are killed. Since it is already hard as it is to relocate Pit Bulls, the rise in deaths has grown drastically. These are dogs that have never harmed a thing in their lives and are gentle and loving and are being forced out of their homes to suffer an unjustifiable death with no where to go but shelters where they are put down. It’s a Holocaust of sorts and is completely unfair to loving dogs and owners alike, who both feel the impact.
The ban affects home owners and renters alike because insurance companies see these breeds as a liability and will not allow them on their properties, making finding a residence extremely hard for owners that do not wish to give up their dogs.
There is a fear of these breeds now and this causes people to cast judgment solely based upon a false sense of fear. The truth is that dogs sometimes attack people,, not just a specific breed or breeds, but the species as a whole. By banning and killing off dogs solely based off of appearance, we are endorsing and showing that stereotyping is okay and should be enforced. It is showing that every dog that looks a certain way is exactly the same. This is so wrong on so many levels. Instead of killing off dogs that belong to a responsible owner why not punish owners who are irresponsible. Why should the actions of the few affect the masses so dramatically?
Banning these breeds, instead of implementing new laws that target irresponsible owners and dogs that actually are dangerous, is not working. These dogs are now being bred by people who just want to make a profit based on their desirability, who in fact, are worsening the breeds. These dogs are being bred in mills and with no concern for good temperaments, genes, and health problems, which is causing more stereotyping to happen. What should be done instead of banning the breeds, is enforcing proper breeding practices and responsible dog ownership.
The fight to end BSL is one that will take the efforts of every person that cares about these dogs. If we don’t stand up for them no one will and then what? Let them die, suffer, and soon be banned everywhere causing the extinction of many breeds? Ending BSL starts with you. Educating yourself and others and being a responsible dog owner is just the beginning to a long road of changing the view about Pit Bulls and Pit Bull type breed.
So will you join in on the fight?

Save a Life…Adopt Just One More…Pet!
Everyday we read or hear another story about pets and other animals being abandoned in record numbers while at the same time we regularly hear about crazy new rules and laws being passed limiting the amount of pets that people may have, even down to one or two… or worse yet, none.
Nobody is promoting hoarding pets or animals, but at a time when there are more pets and animals of all types being abandoned or being taken to shelters already bursting at the seams, there is nothing crazier than legislating away the ability of willing adoptive families to take in just one more pet!!
Our goal is to raise awareness and help find homes for all pets and animals that need one by helping to match them with loving families and positive situations. Our goal is also to help fight the trend of unfavorable legislation and rules in an attempt to stop unnecessary Euthenization!!
“All over the world, major universities are researching the therapeutic value of pets in our society and the number of hospitals, nursing homes, prisons and mental institutions which are employing full-time pet therapists and animals is increasing daily.” ~ Betty White, American Actress, Animal Activist, and Author of Pet Love
