    16 Dec 2014 | 2:57 pm
    Humpback whales have a trick or two, when it comes to finding a quick snack at the bottom of the ocean. Even in the dark. Biologists have been studying these unique feeding behaviors. Her research emphasizes the importance of specific auditory cues that these mammoth creatures emit, as they search the deep ocean for their prey.
  • DNA sheds light on why largest lemurs disappeared: Giant lemurs' demise linked to size, low numbers

    16 Dec 2014 | 11:41 am
    DNA from giant lemurs that lived thousands of years ago in Madagascar may help explain why the animals went extinct, and what makes some lemurs more at risk today. Scientists have little doubt that humans played a role in the giant lemurs' demise. By comparing the species that died out to those that survived, scientists hope to better predict which lemurs are most in need of protection in the future.
  • A lot or a little? Wolves discriminate quantities better than dogs

    16 Dec 2014 | 7:05 am
    Being able to mentally consider quantities makes sense for any social species. Scientists studied how well dogs can discriminate between different quantities and discovered that wolves perform better than dogs at such tasks. Possibly dogs lost this skill, or a predisposition for it, during domestication.
  • Damming beavers are slowly changing the world: Growing beaver population affecting methane gas emissions

    16 Dec 2014 | 5:25 am
    There are consequences of the successful efforts worldwide to save beavers from extinction. Along with the strong increase in their population over the past 100 years, these furry aquatic rodents have built many more ponds, establishing vital aquatic habitat. In doing so, however, they have created conditions for climate changing methane gas to be generated in this shallow standing water, and the gas is subsequently released into the atmosphere. In fact, 200 times more of this greenhouse gas is released from beaver ponds today than was the case around the year 1900, estimates an expert.
  • The bloody truth: How blood donations can save animals' lives

    16 Dec 2014 | 5:24 am
    Blood transfusions are of importance not only in human medicine. Also animals do need blood donations. The University of Veterinary Medicine, Vienna operates a blood bank for dogs for more than a decade. But also cats can donate blood for acute emergencies. Horses need blood donations especially during operations that involve high blood loss. Sheep, goats and other ruminants require transfusions when plagued by serious infestations of parasites. Three vets from different areas of expertise explain how blood transfusions work with different animal species and how they can save lives.

    17 Dec 2014 | 7:40 am
    Morning Tableau It is easy enough to love a farm on a summer evening, the breeze bending the tall grass in the pasture, the animals out grazing, finding their own food. It is not so easy on a gloomy and misty winter morning, the ground covered in ice and slush, fog and mist hovering like a blanket. Still, there is beauty and routine and rythm to a farm, even on a gloomy day. Red in his vigilant crouch, Maria shoveling out the manure in the barn, the sheep at their feeder, the donkeys at theirs. A symmetry, beautiful to see also.

I hadn't walked alone with Red for some time, Maria and I usually walk together, Lenore usually comes along. Red and I were both different on this walk, it was a silent walk, there was  no talking of course. And Red walks differently than Lenore, he walks quietly a few feet ahead of me, if he gets too far ahead, he turns and waits for me, he does not dart off into the woods or follow his nose, he just stays with me. Maria and I love to walk together, and we are always talking to…

    India’s animal rights activists fail to recognise the cultural importance of this cultural colossus – or the human tragedy that occurs thereA festival that has been hijacked by animal rights activists is said to have a simple beginning. Some 250 years ago, Bhagwan Chaudhary, a farmer from Bariyarpur village in Nepal’s southern plains, was arrested for stealing. The authorities were moving him to a jail in Makawanpur, a fort 70km east of his home. En route, Chaudhary prayed to the Hindu goddess Gadhimai.

    No distance is too great for the SeaWorld Orlando Animal Rescue Team. This past weekend, the team traveled nearly 300 miles from the park to Savannah, Ga. to rescue an adult, male manatee. Working alongside the Georgia Department of Natural Resources and U.S. Fish and Wildlife, the team was able to rescue the cold-stressed manatee from the Savannah River late yesterday afternoon.   This is the fourth manatee our animal rescue team has rescued within the last two weeks alone.

On Thursday, the team successfully collected the calf and her mom, cut the line loose from the calf, and released both within minutes. The mother dolphin had a wound from what looked to be a previous entanglement. Terrific effort by those who work tirelessly to save dolphins in the wild, led by the National Oceanic…

    Most Canadians are aware that they pay higher cell phone costs than those in other countries because the market is ruled by the oligopoly of Bell, Rogers and Telus. They fight hard to maintain this stranglehold on the marketplace despite the widespread resentment this causes. Thankfully the federal government realizes that this is a dossier where they will get widespread electoral support whenever they decide to curb the actions of the telecommunications companies. A recent example before the CRTC illustrates the mindset of these companies. The action of Telus brings to mind the Emperor with…

It is believed that these younger voters may well be more inclined to vote Yes on the separation question.  If that choice win, then it is likely that senior pensions would be frozen as occurs in many other countries in the Commonwealth.  It would seem to be a supreme irony that the grandchildren would be…

    Like most dog owners, I have to go to work some days. Luckily, I’m only required in the office 3 days a week and so from Thursday – Sunday I am f-r-e-e! However, the days that I am at work I generally go through a sequence of thoughts and I’m sure that other dog owners do too. 9:01am – I wonder if they have stopped missing me yet 9:07am – They were so cute this morning 9:10am – OH CRAP – Did I lock the door?! 9:12am – Yes. I did. Did I? I did. 9:15am – Okay, okay I had better get on with some work… 10am – I wish I could just call them and say hi 10:20am – Maybe I’ll…
  • Friends with dogs

    Having a dog is an enriching and rewarding experience that can often only be appreciated by those who have also owned dogs. Our dogs – a glorious Chihuahua called Dexter and a dopey Dachshund called Sawyer – are our pride and joy. We wouldn’t trade them for the world. However, owning dogs – although a joy – comes with ample responsibility. I know, I know you’ve heard it a million times before. Probably starting from when you were a child and you fell in love with a beautiful dog that you set eyes on in the park. You begged and begged your parents for a dog…

    The second most glorious day of the year is fast approaching. No, not Christmas – your last day in work before you break up for Christmas! Ah, that sweet day where (almost) nothing can phase you. When eating mince pies for breakfast, elevenses, lunch and your afternoon snack is not just accepted but applauded. When you wish a cheery ‘Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!’ to anyone and everyone you come in contact with. Even listening to Smooth Christmas on the office radio for the third week running can’t wipe that smile off your face! However if – like me – you’re…
  • 2014: The things that changed the dog world

    Bronwyn Hall
    11 Dec 2014 | 11:16 am
    As the year draws to a close it seems right to reflect on the things that changed the dog world in 2014. Pup Aid held their 4th annual dog show to raise money and awareness to fight puppy farming. Hundreds of dogs descended on Primrose Hill to attend the event which included celebrity judges. July saw some of the highest temperatures of the year, and tragically this caused the death of a Pug named Merlin. Merlin was travelling with owners from Dover to Calais in sweltering heat and due to standard policy had to remain in the car for the hour and a half journey. Ferry operators…

    The Express has today reported that police authorities and the RSPCA have warned dog owners to be extra vigilant following a spate of dog-nappings. According to the report, police have said that the culprits are focussing on expensive breeds. Targets have included Spaniels, Cockapoos, gun dogs and running dogs. A director for the County Land Association was quoted as saying that dogs are targeted as thieves can make easy money selling them on for breeding or fighting. The police have asked that if anybody believes that their dog has been stolen – rather than lost – to call them on 101…

      Photographing eagles at Conowingo Dam along the Susquehanna River in Maryland, has to be one of the most thrilling experiences of a photographer’s life. At least it is, if the eagles are there! There are no guarantees that they will show up in big numbers, or that they will be active for more than a few minutes every hour or two, but when conditions are right, the sound of thousands of camera shutters going off continuously can really raise one’s adrenaline! From early November to the end of December is the best time to go. When power is needed, the hydroelectric plant…
  • Eurasian Wigeons and American Wigeons: Contentious Cousins

    Lauren Shaffer
    7 Nov 2014 | 5:52 pm
    The Eurasian Wigeon which breeds in Iceland, Europe, and Asia, is a common visitor to America, and is a handsome bird with its rufous head and pinkish breast.  It shares some characteristics with its American cousin, the “Baldpate,” such as the cream-colored crown, white shoulder patch, and black at the back end. As stated in Audubon birds, The Eurasian Wigeon is usually found associating with flocks of its American counterpart. Like the American Wigeon, this species is unorthodox in its feeding habits: It spends much of its time grazing on land like a goose and also loiters…
  • Forster’s Tern

    Lauren Shaffer
    29 Oct 2014 | 7:00 pm
    The Forster’s Tern is a beauty, unique among the terns in winter with its black eye patch rather than a cap or crown. It’s also the only tern which lives almost entirely in North America. On a recent visit to Cape May, NJ, we came upon these beautiful birds vying for a spot on the railing of a dock. Forester’s Terns feed on fish, small crustaceans, frogs, and mollusks. They often hover before plunge-diving into the water after prey. In the East they prefer salt water marshes, and in the West they inhabit mainly fresh water marshes. Winter is spent along the coast south of…

    Lincoln’s sparrows are always a treat to see in fall migration in Pennsylvania.  Their finely streaked sides and breast, along with their buffy malar stripe and upper breast, an eye ring, and white throat and belly all combine to make for one handsome bird. s This fall I discovered some wonderful habitat for migrating sparrows and warblers.  At the bottom of a private lane of a neighbor, where field, prairie (shrubby grassland), and deep woods converge; dozens, if not hundreds of mostly sparrows are often found in the grasses, multiflora rose, and autumn olive.

  • Great Blue Heron Juvenile

    Lauren Shaffer
    8 Oct 2014 | 11:24 am
    All About Birds states: Whether poised at a river bend or cruising the coastline with slow, deep wingbeats, the Great Blue Heron is a majestic sight. This stately heron with its subtle blue-gray plumage often stands motionless as it scans for prey or wades belly deep with long, deliberate steps. They may move slowly, but Great Blue Herons can strike like lightning to grab a fish or snap up a gopher. In flight, look for this widespread heron’s tucked-in neck and long legs trailing out behind. Juvenile Great Blue Herons are medium-gray like the adult, but have two-toned bills and a streaked…

It’s fun to show off to your friends, and at the same time it gives both you and your confidence when your dog is disciplined.
