Wednesday Pet Roundup- After Holidays Edition

Hi and welcome to Wednesday Pet Roundup! Here's Kelly, reminding me to renew my commitment to fitness this new year. And here are your links for this week.

  * From Mercury news, Tillman the bulldog rode the waves on an impressive nearly-120-foot long float with real surf in the Tournament of Roses Parade.

 * The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports that pets given as holiday gifts too often end up being returned to the shelter. Surrendered pets suffer emotionally when they are returned to a shelter cage.

* Amber the pitbull will soon be placed in a new home. tells us that she was abandoned with a note on her collar: "Amber: I need a family."

*Reuters reports that having a cat as a kid can help reduce chances of developing allergies. However, the same is not true for adults. Getting a cat when you are an adult nearly doubles your allergy risks.

* Check out these Cute Overload photos of cats taking baths!
