Wednesday Pet Roundup

Hi and welcome to Wednesday Pet Roundup! Here is Kelly ready for spring!

* This week, tons of updates on Patrick, the dog dumped down the trash chute, on my positive thoughts for Patrick post, and from Life with Dogs, Ohmidog, The Poodle (and Dog) Blog, Have dog blog will travel, No Dog About It, Cindy Lu's Muse, and many more.

* Also, happy ending for the dog found floating on a rooftop off the coast of Japan for 3 weeks. CNN World reports on "Ban" the dog reunited with his owners.

* Msn Today brings us Smokey the cat, who is vying for world record title as the cat with the loudest purr! Thanks to Off the Leash s.d. for first alerted me to this purring kitty.

* I just couldn't resist this headline: "Oklahoma woman fights to keep her paralyzed pet kangaroo." I'm not including the link because when I clicked on it, about a thousand pop-ups occurred. Article is from the Enquirer (of course!).

* Now for a video and a laugh. I wish I'd discovered this in time for April Fool's Day. Check out this hysterical ad for a dog high chair. Dog not included.

* Note: I have been unable to contact the winner of the DNA kit, Amber Jackson. If this is you, please contact me with your mailing address. Unfortunately, if I am unable to connect with you by Saturday 4/9/11, I will have to select a new winner.


  1. Lots of amazing stories this week. Thanks.

    Your pal, Pip

  2. Kelly looks great all ready for Spring!
    Great stories:)

  3. Great links this week! I especially liked the loudest purr one. :) PS - are those lilacs with Kelly? Lilacs are my fave.

  4. @Pup Fan- Lilacs are my favorite too. They smell soooo nice.

  5. I read abouts Patrick and my mum sat and cried. I won't say what I feels here but he be in our thoughts.

    Kelly, you looks gorgeous in all them purty lilacs!


  6. Kelly you look soooooo sweet in those lovely lilacs.

  7. Thanks for the stories and updates
    Benny & Lily

  8. Ha ha ha, Ikea will sell ANYTHING! That's awesome!

  9. I'm so glad for the happy news - both for the rescued dog and for Patrick!

  10. I love the photo of Kelly. I'm probably way off as my dog breed ID skills aren't great, but Kelly sure reminds me of Benji. I had a Benji obsession as a child and seeing Kelly, brought all those great memories back. And thanks for the mention, it really helps get my name. Keep up the good work!

  11. Dogs are a trial run for kids???!

    That vid is surely a joke. Please tell me it is! :)

  12. @georgia little pea Yup, it was IKEA's April Fools joke!


Kelly and Ike say thank you for your comments!
