Monday Pet Roundup

Hi and welcome to Monday Pet Roundup!

* Pet rescues in the news: In Washington DC, a distressed dog received assistance from a U.S. Park Police detective. When the dog, apparently overcome by heat, was seen struggling in the Washington Channel, the detective jumped in for the rescue.
(Update: the dog did not survive. The owner was given a citation for allowing the dog to run loose in the park.)

* USA Today reports that another distressed dog, this one trapped in a hot car, saved itself by honking the horn until his owner returned and let him out.

* Kitty gone missing? Chicago Trib reports on a new iphone app to help locate your lost cat, called Here, Kitty Kitty. I'll let you decide if it actually works.

* Over at Take Paws, guest blogger Roxanne Hawn explains why Golden, Colorado is a great destination to visit with your dog!

*You're not going to want to eat this. Doggie Stylish brings us photos of amazing, 3D dog cakes.

What about you? Do you know of a great place to visit with your dog? And, if you've lost a pet, what have you done to help find it?

Smart dog, saving himself by honking horn. Maybe the owner will think twice. Great stories

Our Yorkie Beau is getting up there in doggie years. We take him to the park but he just can't run around like he used to. Poor little fella. But he likes to sit and watch people go by. Yeah, he's a people watcher.

Sad update to the first story Sometimes peoples can be stoopid. At least the second story had a happy ending. Thanks for sharing.

Woofs and Licks,

Love the story of the dog honking the horn until his idiot, uh, master, came to his rescue.
