Wednesday Pet Roundup

Hi and Welcome to Wednesday Pet Roundup. Here's Kelly trying to help me write my blog. She's pointed me in the right direction to our links this week:

*USA Today reports that United Airlines now requires pets to fly as cargo instead of luggage.  I just cringe at classifying pets as either luggage or cargo. How about a "live animal" classification and more safety precautions for flying pets?

*Interesting article in the New York Times noting a food revolution for pets, indicating that while American mealtimes reflect the financial hard times, a rising trend in pets foods favors spending lavishly on super-premium pet foods. Do you think this reflects indulgence, or an awareness in pet nutrition and health? And, when on a limited budget, where do you draw the line?

* Have you heard of DogTV? A new cable channel with shows for dogs, including scenes of car rides and romps in the park. The channel is only available in limited areas right now, and costs $5/month.

* From Life with Dogs, this video of a dalmatian and a kitten will make you smile.
