Flying with pet

Flying with pet, flying dog

Check out this cool pictures of a man flying with his pet dog. Dan McManus is a professional paragliding and hang gliding instructor in Utah. He has been flying for about 37 years and he can be found most days catching the breeze at the flight park on a mountain ridge at the south end of the Salt Lake valley. However, in recent years he has also been joined on many flights by his service dog Shadow. McManus suffers from a general anxiety disorder but manages to keep many of the symptoms in check with the constant companionship of his Australian cattle dog. While flying in itself has been a calming pursuit he soon found out that his service dog never wanted to be away from him (a bit of separation anxiety for Shadow).

Tips on how to keep your Pets cool this summer

The temperature is rising fast this summer, with that extreme heat it is not only us who suffer but also our pets.

The American Red Cross has made steps you and your family can follow to stay safe in the heat.

As you head outdoors this week, the biggest tip, says the American Red Cross is to hydrate, hydrate, hydrate.
“You know our mothers always told us, ‘drink a lot of water,’ and a lot of times we don't,” Daniel Peterson of the Red Cross says.

The Red Cross says children and the elderly are the most susceptible to the heat, so watch for signs of heat exhaustion.

“Basically, where a person starts to get red, they might get dizzy or nauseous, and they'll start sweating a lot,” Peterson says. “Heat stroke is critical and you need to call 9-1-1. That's actually when its life-threatening and the person losses consciousness.” The SPCA tells us pets can also suffer from heat exhaustion and heat stroke too.

“I've seen a dog seizure from heat stroke and it’s an awful sight,” Katie Meskil, SPCA shelter director, says. “They're more susceptible to it after the first time they get it and it can eventually be deadly.” So make sure your pets have access to shade and cool water. The Red Cross says people should take the same advice when working in the hot temps.

“If you are on a shift for eight hours working on a road, make sure you have water at all times and that you do have more breaks, especially when it gets hot and you are in direct sunlight,” Peterson advises. And never, ever leave your children or pets in a vehicle. In the summer months, the temperature inside can reach 120 degrees in less than five minutes.

“Even if you are running in for a quick beverage at the local convenience store, don't leave them in the car,” Peterson says. The Red Cross also recommends that parents schedule play dates and sport activities first thing in the morning, or in the evening when the temperatures are cooler.

California Police Kills Dog in cold blood

Police officers in Hawthorne, California are facing some heat this week after a video was posted to Reddit which showed them shooting a man’s dog. They shot the dog helplessly. This is what Hawthorne Police are really about they are cold blooded killer who put the law in their own hands. If they can kill a dog that easily they can kill innocent civilians too.

The man, Leon Rosby, was taking video on his phone of several officers who had closed off a street and were going into a home; he, in turn, was being recorded by another bystander. After a brief exchange with the officers, they approached Rosby, who put his dog–which appears to be a Rottweiler–into his car and then turned and willingly put his hands behind his back to be handcuffed for allegedly obstructing justice at a crime scene.

However, the officers can be seen getting a little rough with Rosby and his dog became agitated and began barking from the car, which had the windows rolled down. The animal jumped out and approached the group, still barking, and one officer opened fire, shooting several times. Rosby, who is clearly devastated in the video, is planning to sue the Hawthorne Police Department; however, they say they were not only protecting themselves, but were protecting Rosby, who was handcuffed and wouldn’t have been able to protect himself had the dog attacked.

Hawthorne police Lt. Scott Swain continued to LIE to protect his fellow police thugs “It looks like the officer tried to reach down and grab the leash, and then the dog lunges in the direction of him and the other officers there.”

Warning the video is very graphic, and shows cops in action arresting innocent bystander and mericlessly killing a pet dog.
