UK Residents Forced To Microchip Their Dogs by 2016

The United Kingdom’s Parliament has approved a new law requiring that dog owners must have their canine implanted with a microchip by 2016.

'Shark Tank' Gets Historic Protection From Commercial Predators

ABC’s Shark Tank stars billionaire Mark Cuban, real estate mogul Barbara Corcoran, technology innovator Robert Herjavec, fashion and branding expert Daymond John and venture capitalist Kevin O’Leary as the five sharks. As the anthropomorphic-version of actual sharks, they create feeding frenzies every week where would-be inventors and entrepreneurs solicit their funding. While these affluent sharks need no protection, those that swim the 'deep blue' are definitely in dire need!

Online Auto Research Omits Mini Coopers In Top Ten Pet-Safe Vehicles

It's odd the collaborative online research conducted by Edmunds.com and Bark-BuckleUP in its "Top Ten Pet-Safe Vehicles" rankings released on March 5, 2013, omitted an obvious contender.

At Loggerheads, It's A Shell Game For Turtles Who Lack Social Networking

The act of turtles burying their heads in their shell was interpreted in idiom as the need to "come out of one's shell"-- or to become more sociable and less shy. While this reptile's shell makes a lot of sense in providing a protective shield from its enemies, there might be another reason for its existence. My thought is that turtles lack the social network from birth that most other species are accustomed to.

Passengers on an Australian plane heading from the northeastern city of Carins to Papua New Guinea were shocked to see a ten foot long python dangling to the wing of their plane.

Barney The Dog Has A Flintstones' Moment, Eats Pebbles

Barney the chocolate Labrador retriever loves to go for long walks on the beach in Chessington, Surrey, England with his mom and dad, Kim and Andrew Woolland. One day last year the trio went for a walk along the shore in Kent and since they were alone, the Woollands took Barney off his lead to let him run. Barney made a day of it running along the nice, pebbly beach and dashing in and out of the surf. The next day Kim noticed that Barney was no longer his happy, carefree self.

Dell Computers' Alternate Universe: Toad, Rabbit & Bird Commute To Work [Videos]

But today, I focus on the creative genius of Young & Rubicam NY whose imaginative TV commercial titled, "Meet Thomas: Creator of an Alternate Universe."
