Dog Saves Friends in Canoe

A black Labrador retriever rescue his two friends who looked trapped on a canoe that is being pushed by the rivers current. The dogs were barking as if they are communicating with each other. In my opinion, it's not really a rescue it looks more like the owner is training his dogs to retrieve a canoe in a river.

Marijuana's effect on pets

Vets worried at a staggering rise of dogs getting sick from marijuana in states where it is legal.

Many people believe that using the drug for medicinal purposes can be beneficial.

But according to a new study, one unintended side effect of legalized pot is a spike in the number of pets who get sick after accidentally ingesting the drug.

A study by Dr. Stacy Meola of the Wheat Ridge Animal Hospital concluded that animal poisoning caused by marijuana quadrupled in Colorado over the past five years, and vets say treating high dogs has become an increasingly common occurrence.

Doping your dog can get your pet very sick and may eventually die.

Once you pet ingest marijuana, they act lethargic, and start staggering and vomiting.  They may also become overly sensitive to sound and light.

In most cases, pets get hold of the drug through negligence of the owners.

So keep in mind marijuana is bad for your pets, keep them away from it be responsible. If you suspect your pet might be sick from the drug be honest and tell your vet right away so they can give proper treatment.

Hartsdale Pet Cemetery

Hartsdale Pet Cemetery is now a Historic Place and the first animal burial ground to be listed on the National Register of Historic Places by the National Park Services.

The 115-year-old Hartsdale Pet Cemetery is home to more than 70,000 pets.

"The addition of Hartsdale Pet Cemetery to the Register is a fitting way to recognize the long-standing and significant role animal companions have played in our nation's history and culture," Carol Shull, interim keeper of the National Register of Historic Places, said in a news release.

Hartsdale Pet Cemetery is also known for its War Dog Memorial, dedicated after WWI as a public tribute to honor military working dogs.
