Back in August Anthony Ortolani climbed Mount Bierstadt, one of the many "fourteeners," or peaks that rise to 14,000 feet or more above sea level in Colorado. He took his German shepherd, Missy, along with him. On the way down he reached a point where Missy could not make it on her own. He said that he didn't want to leave her, but decided that he had to stay with her and die himself or go down the mountain without her. Eight days later she was found at 13,000 feet by Scott and Amanda Washburn, skinny, bleeding, and clinging to life.

can pass a law outlawing the service of large soda drinks in the city,
it should certainly be able to pass and enforce a law requiring a
registry of animal abuse offenders.

Dog shaming is not my thing; I just don't believe that pets are
motivated to change by yelling, scolding, or punishment.  Besides, dogs
know when they do something wrong and they are already ashamed about
it.  But there's a fun and creative way to shame your dog and share it
with the world.

Who doesn't love cute little puppies playing?  Maybe Darth Vader...  But I suspect everyone else is a fan of little bouncing balls of fur.  And the baby pugs are just plain adorable in today's video.
