Wednesday Pet Roundup

Hi and welcome to Wednesday Pet Roundup! Here's Kelly, enjoying a dip in the lake.

* Does your cat bring home stolen objects? From Mental Floss, you've got to see this hilarious list, with great photos, of 7 Curious Cases of Criminal Cats!

* A victory in Palm Beach County where a law has been passed prohibiting tethering of animals at any hour, and forbidding tight outdoor dog shelters. The Orlando Sentinel reports some controversy to the new law. I say boo for the opponents, yay for the dogs!

* Through midnight tomorrow you can suggest a name for this adorable PGBV (Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen) the new spokesdog for P&G Pet Care. They'll donate $1 to America's Vet Dogs (up to $10,000) for each name suggested, so hurry go to Iams or Eukanuba's P and G's Facebook page.

* Pooper scooper advocates (and aren't we all?) take note: abc news reports that some apartment complexes in New York, Florida, and other locations are now requiring renters to turn over DNA samples from their dogs. Why? DNA tests on un-cleaned-up droppings will accurately identify the culprit! Offenders are fined and if repeated, could face eviction.

What a great roundup! Kelly, that water sure looks fun (and refreshing).

That's great news about the new law in Palm Beach. We totally agree ... this is a wonderful victory for the dogs!

Yea for the new scoop the poop rules! We were in a park in California recently where you could be fined if you did not have something to pick up after your pet with you. Unfortunately, people are not as responsible as they should be - if we must fine them into submission, I'm okay with that.

So glad to hear about the no tethering law. I wish more places had those. Tethering makes dogs more aggressive, which in turn, increases dog bites. I hope the good sense spreads.
