    Enabling Cruelty On a farm in Northern California, a woman on thousand acre cattle farm trained her Australian Shepherds to patrol the perimeter of her ranch,  she trained them to push the cows back when they got too close to the road. She credited them with saving more than a score of animals in less than a year. Last October, she became concerned when the three dogs failed to come home at the usual time, they were gone all night. In the morning, she received a call from the police. Someone driving by saw the dogs out in the field, stopped their car, leashed them, got them into their car, …

  • From worker to queen at the drop of a gene

    26 May 2015 | 5:53 am
    Biologists have discovered that one of nature’s most important pollinators - the buff-tailed bumblebee – either ascends to the status of queen or remains a lowly worker bee based on which genes are ‘turned on’ during its lifespan.
  • From chicken to dinosaur: Scientists experimentally 'reverse evolution' of perching toe

    22 May 2015 | 2:45 pm
    A unique adaptation in the foot of birds is the presence of a thumb-like opposable toe, which allows them to grasp and perch.  However, in their dinosaur ancestors, this toe was small and non- opposable, and did not even touch the ground, resembling the dewclaws of dogs and cats. Remarkably, the embryonic development of birds provides a parallel of this evolutionary history: The toe starts out like their dinosaur ancestors, but then its base (the metatarsal) becomes twisted, making it opposable.

    21 May 2015 | 6:06 pm
    A huge wildebeest herd migrates across the open, parched plains. Dust swirls up from the many hooves pounding the ground, and forms a haze over the landscape. The setting sun gives the scene a golden tinge. Serengeti National Park is the symbol of Africa's abundant wildlife. The park as we know it today could be history within a few decades, experts say.

    Taking A Nap Why, I wonder, is it so heartwarming and affirming to see the relationship between Fate and Red deepen? Yesterday Red lay down near the sofa and Fate came over and lay down next to him, Red put his head on her back and went to sleep, she closed her eyes and went to sleep also. It touched my heart to see it, I'm not sure why. I think this is something Red needed. I have seen no signs of any kind of grieving from Red over the loss of Lenore or Frieda, he has gone about his business very much as usual, he took over the dog beds right away, never stopped eating or doing his work. I…

    Teaching Red How To Play We are in the second week of life with Fate, she is doing well. The major issue remaining is that she is intensely hyper inside the farmhouse, chewing, grabbing, mouthing, running in circles. When she gets the zooms, she goes into the crate, sometimes I put my food on a long lede and hold it, she usually keels over in a minute or two and falls asleep. She has not yet learned how to calm herself, which is why the time in the crate and the calming and obedience training is so important. Red is showing her many things, but she is also teaching him some things, including…

    Shadow Outruns: Fate running alongside Red (Above: Fate loves to run alongside Red when he does his outruns around the sheep.) I've been writing about dogs a long time, and I know when the natives are getting curious, even restless. I am getting a lot of polite questions about why Fate is not going to be trained to herd sheep,  since she has so much instinct and drive. (I see people are wary of offering me advice, but are legitimately interested.) I think they are fair questions, they deserve some answers. First off, we don't need two herding dogs here, this is Red's turf and terrain and he…

The marine flowering plant also helps sustain abundant sea life and protects shorelines around the world from coastal erosion. Yet with seagrass habitats suffering rapid global decline and despite the plant's huge potential; there are currently no functioning seagrass restoration or conservation projects. Due to their shallow coastal habitat the aquatic plant is particularly prone to human disturbance - globally 24 per cent of seagrass species are now classified as threatened or near…
  • Biodiversity: Eleven new species come to light in Madagascar

    Madagascar is home to extraordinary biodiversity, but in the past few decades, the island's forests and associated biodiversity have been under greater attack than ever. Rapid deforestation is affecting the biotopes of hundreds of species, including the panther chameleon, a species with spectacular intra-specific colour variation. A new study reveals that this charismatic reptilian species, which is only found in Madagascar, is actually composed of eleven different species.
  • New model predicts fish population response to dams, other ecological factors

    21 May 2015 | 11:40 am
    Researchers have developed a model to assess how dams affect the viability of sea-run fish species that need to pass dams as they use both fresh and marine waters during their lifetimes. The aim is to test how varying passage efficiency at dams related to survival rates for these species, using a model of endangered Atlantic salmon as a case study.
  • Eastern diamondback rattlesnakes' quest for fire

    21 May 2015 | 7:49 am
    The eastern diamondback rattlesnake has lost 97 percent of its habitat since Europeans first arrived in America. New research demonstrates the critical nature of one element of the diamondback's home range, pine savanna. For conservationists seeking surrogate habitats for the now-rare species' dwindling population, the results underscore the need for prescribed fire management to maintain the open-canopy forest and its ecosystem.

    This past Sunday, Mother’s Day, the SeaWorld Rescue Team responded to rescue a distressed mother manatee – and her still-nursing calf – near Satellite Beach, Fla. and brought the pair back to SeaWorld Orlando. The mother has a collapsed lung, which creates buoyancy issues, so our team outfitted her with a “manatee wetsuit” they designed for such rescue cases. The wetsuit helps assist the manatee with floating and allows our team to draw out trapped air and fluids.The mother manatee weighs 1,070 pounds, is 9 feet long and is estimated to be 10 years old; her…

    The alarming decline in bee population could cause bees to become extinct in the very near future. Honey bees, which account for more than $15 billion through their vital role in keeping fruits, nut and vegetables in our diets have fallen prey to a mysterious disorder called ‘Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD). This is a syndrome defined as a dead colony with one live queen and immature bees unable to sustain the hive. #pets #animals

    What do you get if you cross a therapy dog and a pet rat? Sounds like the intro to a bad joke, doesn’t it? Well, if you follow Chicago based therapy dog Osiris and Riff, the pet rat, on Instagram (@osirisandriff) you’ll know it’s the recipe for a very unusual friendship. Osiris is a three year old Dutch Shepherd and Riff the rat is just three months old. What these two get up to in their day to day relationship will blow your mind!

    A recent study by Swedish researchers says that dogs were domesticated earlier than thought. The genetics study, led by Dr Love Dalen of the Swedish Museum of Natural History, says that dogs may have begun to split from wolves 27,000 years ago. Dr Dalen told BBC News: “One scenario is that wolves started following humans around and domesticated themselves. Another is that early humans simply caught wolf cubs and kept them as pets and this gradually led to these wild wolves being domesticated. If this model is correct then dogs were domesticated by hunter gatherers that led a fairly…

I swear when I am overworked and I can’t sleep (i.e. I am too tired) I get a little looney. I need rest and sleep in order to be successful in life, it is one of those fundamental puzzle pieces I need in order to survive. I have friends and family that can function on very little sleep and rest.  4 hours or less works for them. I am not that person. I need rest and relaxation more I suppose.

Yes, yes Yes, most of us have a fairly consistent routine. We probably get up at about the same time, go to work at the same time or same days, eat dinner approximately the same time, and go about our daily mundane duties about the same. But most of us are not consistent with our dogs and their behaviors. We get a puppy. We are all excited to bring it home and train it right. It comes home, shows all kinds of natural doggy…
  • Teach Your Dog To Play

    Minette
    8 May 2015 | 8:00 am
    I can’t tell you how many people say “but… my dog won’t play”. People buy a ball or a toy, present it to the dog or puppy and if the dog or puppy doesn’t immediately engage they think the dog doesn’t like toys. Or they toss the ball or toy and if the dog doesn’t instantaneously chase it they think the dog won’t play. The truth is that most dogs will play. Not ALL dogs. I have seen the occasional Bassett Hound or Greyhound or (insert breed here) that doesn’t have much prey drive.  Yes, retired Greyhounds can lose their prey drive and become couch potatoes.

Most of you live nowhere near me, so I feel like I can generically plug good doggy day cares out there everywhere! The truth is that doggy day cares can be life savers! And, there are many good doggy day cares out there! For instance, 90% of those of us who work there are already well established trainers.  So we don’t allow the dogs to jump, pull us, pounce other dogs in crates, and we make the dogs sit before going in and out of doors. And, when the place gets busy because dogs are coming and going, we…

  • Warblers! Parade through the Puddles

    Lauren Shaffer
    16 May 2015 | 1:43 pm
    Early to mid-May is a warbler frenzy, both for the warblers migrating through the area and for the photographer who wants to catch these little jewels on camera. So what do you do when you are at Presque Isle for less than 24 hours, the light is horrible, the leaves are out, and it’s threatening to rain? The first day yielded few visible warblers, so I went to my secret spot which had a couple of inviting mud puddles, sat down at the edge of the trail at a respectful distance, and prepared for the show! Because of the distance and the poor light, you will have to enjoy the variety of…

    Harlequin Ducks are a feast for the eyes with all those stripes, spots, and exotic coloring going on! If you really want to see them though, it may require a trip in winter  to Barnegat Lighthouse, New Jersey, and a treacherous walk along the giant rocks that make up the almost mile-long jetty. This year and last, however, the ducks were still hanging out there in late March and early April, so even though there was a blustery cold wind off the ocean, at least there was no ice to contend with on the rocks! The male Harlequins are slate-gray with stark white spots and bright rust on the top…
  • Baltimore Orioles come to oranges–sometimes!

    Lauren Shaffer
    26 Apr 2015 | 5:18 pm
    For years, I have attempted to attract Baltimore Orioles to oranges during migration. I would see them in the yard, but they turned up their noses, er, beaks, at the expensive gift that I put out for them. Finally, last year, not one, but several came to sample the small Clementines that I put out on the deck for them! I figured using Clementines would be a cheaper way to go, rather than using up an orange at a dollar a piece. I sliced off the very top of the fruit and pushed a toothpick through the base of the orange into a crack in the deck railing. Lo and behold, I got Baltimore Orioles!
  • Common Loon

    Lauren Shaffer

    In their breeding plumage, Common loons are the elegant black and white tuxedo-clad birds of the northern lakes and the oceans. They sport a dagger-like bill and a red eye, white stripes on the neck and spots on the back, making for a handsome sight.  Their tremulo calls and yodels have been called “the laugh of the deeply insane,” as it is eerily unique and seldom forgotten. While watching this handsome loon at the lake at Montour Preserve, I witnessed an immature Bald Eagle harassing him, diving low over the bird as it rose up out of the water with bill up in the air in its…

I’m not sure why the geese did this, but perhaps it’s a way to slow themselves down and put them over the water for a gentle landing. Anyway, it was great fun to watch! The post Crazy Geese!
