Recently, I was deeply moved by a human interest story posted in The National, titled "Can we establish a cancer hospital for our animals" reported by columnist Rym Ghazai from the United Arab Emirates.  It was a touching feature about a seven-year-old girl named Noura and detailed how her bout with cancer put her in contact with a tabby kitten called Tuna.

We all remember the excitement of leaving a newly lost tooth under the pillow for the tooth fairy in exchange for a bit of cash. In some cultures it is not a fairy collecting teeth but a mouse. In Spain, Mexico, and other countries in Latin America it is a mouse named Ratoncito Peréz, or El Raton de los Dientes. In France the mouse is named La Petite Souris.

Babies and puppies in the home are similar in one respect. They are both learning as they go and can be taught preferred behavior at an early age. But when the puppy enters the household in advance of the baby, it can be a daunting experience, particularly when the pooch feels neglected or it has lost some influence with its masters. No longer being the center of attention can be traumatic.

What’s labeled ‘faux’ should be just that. The origin of this word is French and it's translated to mean “imitation.” Used as an adjective, it most often precedes a noun as a descriptor for an object, event or character that is ‘not the real deal.’ In the case of ‘faux fur,’ a garment can range from every-day wear to haute couture. However, it should not come from a fur-covered animal and if it does, it should never be marketed as ‘faux fur.’ Unfortunately in the case of ‘raccoon dogs’ that is not the case, and definitely a practice that should be banned.

Once upon a time . . . okay, it was back in 2013 . . . a squirrel became involved in an attempted murder when a wife attacked her husband. Once the police arrived on the scene the rodent was entered into evidence because, believe it or not, the squirrel had been the wife's weapon of choice. The rest is internet hysteria, er, um, history.
