OK, so we don't see friends feeding carrots to giraffes everyday like these gals at an amusement park in South Korea, but most of us have witnessed a friend who really loves their pet offer up a face-to-face treat. Have you ever fed Fido or Felix with your mouth?

My heart stops anytime I hear pet food recall news and, sadly, recalls are a fact of life.
If you think something is wrong with your furry friend's food – problems, adverse reactions, infestations, etc. – there's actually a FDA district office for all 50 states. Look up the consumer complaint coordinator for your geographic area, call them, and they can take it from there.
A spectacle and hat-wearing Zach Braff showed up to help support the first ever Adoptapalooza pet adoption event in Washington Square Park in New York City this weekend. The Saturday event brought more than 100 cats and dogs looking for homes to the park and was planned to raise awareness of the endeuthanizing of animals in city shelters. Apparently dozens of pets found happy homes!

PetSugar: When did you get your dog and what is her breed?
samshrew: We found Sushi from a newspaper ad. She came from a litter of seven. She is 1/2 Corgi and half American Eskimo. She was born on April of 2008 and we picked her up in June of 2008.
PetSugar: What's your daily doggie routine?
samshrew: Sushi's owner had named her "Lazy" and the name is apt. She spends large portions of everyday sleeping and will generally not get out of bed in the morning until you tell her to. Sushi receives 2-3 walks per day. We have a dog walker that comes during the weekdays to walk her around mid-day. When she is not being walked Sushi goes from room to room sleeping and waiting for someone to give her a snack. Typically we spend a part of the evening playing with her and teaching her new tricks. (She recently FINALLY learned "roll over").
Surf's up, dawg! Pups of all kinds showed off their surfing skills this weekend at the 5th annual Loews Coronado Bay Resort Surf Dog Competition in Imperial Beach, California. According to the competition's rules, each dog (or team) had 10 minutes to catch their top two waves, and were scored on confidence level, length of ride and overall ability to "grip it and rip it." What followed was epic cuteness. Catch the wave, dudettes.
Since boats and beaches can be wet and sandy, don't add in dirt to the equation with this simple trick. Use an empty and fully dried water bottle to store some tiny training treats (like these). Easy to find and less mess, toss the container in your bag and you're ready to set sail!
