Corolla Wild Horses (Immigrants Since 1500s) Finally Star In NC Tourism Ad Campaign

Can you date your American heritage back to the 1500s? Most likely not, since the majority of Americans immigrated to the U.S. centuries later. However, there are some horses in the States that can make that claim. They are Colonial Spanish Mustangs who are the direct descendants of the horses brought to the US by the Spanish Conquistadors in 1520. So essentially America was their land before it was ours.

Jolly Bali Monkeys Say Yes To More Than The Dress

Now that's what I call monkey business! A Taiwanese girl sight-seeing in Bali served up more than she expected when a pair of promiscuous primates went ape for the gorilla their dreams.

When Turtles Fly?

Something that has the impossibility of ever happening is often derided with an adynaton: "yeah, when pigs fly." This figure of speech is often used for humorous effect, to scoff at over-ambition. The etymological origins some say date as far back as Lewis Carroll's "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland," when the Duchess told Alice she had just as much right to think "as pigs have to fly."

Dogs Against Romney: A PACK, Not A PAC

While some would say America is going to the dogs, there are others who wholeheartedly agree with them, and they're happy about it.

Large Animals Make For Big Business In The Airline Industry

While the U.S. pet carrier Pet Airways seems to be having trouble getting off the ground, airlines like Germany's Lufthansa, Air France-KLM, and Emirates are enjoying their success at not only carrying household pets, but large animals - rhinos, horses, tigers....  You name it, and one of the airlines will carry it, unless it's a poisonous snake or an illegally caught wild animal.

Chickens Can Be Pets Too?

As a second-generation kid of Italian descent, a trip to Grandma’s house in Rochester, New York’s inner city was always entertaining. While Grandma Rose (aka “The Boss”) wasn’t necessarily what you’d classify as eccentric, her old-world habits and traditions were often an adventure to behold for a toddler who was being gentrified in the suburbs. While household pets in my world were of the canine variety, Grandma was the first to introduce me to the idea that a chicken could also be man’s best friend.

Check Out Pet Friendly Check-Ins

Traveling with one's pet can be an arduous task, but often dog, cat and bird owners just can't leave home without them. So the issue becomes how to scout out pet-friendly accommodations in advance of travel to be assured there will be 'room at the inn' when you arrive. With today's technology and specific websites dedicated to pet travel, that job has become a lot easier as a result of certain hotel brands and even independent inns and B&Bs opening their doors to four-legged guests.
