Wednesday Pet Roundup- August 1

Hi and welcome to Wednesday Pet Roundup!

* My pal Jodi from Kol's Notes alerted me to this dog bearding thing, so I just had to try it! (What do you think Jodi?) p.s. Kelly was not amused either!

* Sugar, a 2-yr old golden retriever (no relationship to another famous golden named Sugar!) is one of four dogs working in the new Thrive Therapy Dog Unit at Westside Medical Center in Oregon.

* Have you been told that dogs only see in black and white? These researchers prove that dogs are able to differentiate colors.

*From Mother Nature Network: Do cats always land on their feet?  Find out.

* From Buzzfeed, "23 Dogs Who are Too Adorably Stupid for their Own Good." I love the dogs who didn't know to go through the open doors. Brooks was like that.

I hope you have a great week!

    I've found the updated research on what dogs can see very helpful. It helps me understand why Honey as a hard time finding a tennis ball on the grass if it's not moving. The contrast is too low.

    Stocking up on blue balls to give her a fighting chance if she doesn't catch it in the air.


Kelly and Ike say thank you for your comments!
