It's Not What You Think ...

Friday, April 27, 2007 by Tony Haffner



OK, OK, People, calm down ... I'm sure there is an explanation for all of this.

I'm sure the cat in the foreground was simply reaching for his morning porridge, and there was a simple misunderstanding that caused a 'Head chomp', and the kitten in the background was not scarred for life.

Hugs & Kisses ...

Thursday, April 26, 2007 by Tony Haffner



If I could capture a bunch of my love
this, I tell you, I would do...
I'd put it in a keepsake bottle
made especially for you!

So, here is a special bottle,
though not all my love would fit,
I still stuffed tons of hugs & kisses
way down inside of it!

Every time you feel down or sad, just remember this little bottle of love! You can take hugs and kisses out any time you need to - and they'll never run out!!

World's Tallest Man Saves China Dolphins

Wednesday, April 18, 2007 by Tony Haffner

The world's tallest man saved two dolphins in northeast China by reaching inside of them with his 3-foot arms to remove plastic they had swallowed.

The dolphins got sick after eating plastic from the edge of their pool at an aquarium in Liaoning province. Attempts to use surgical instruments to remove the plastic failed because the dolphins' stomachs contracted in response to the instruments, the China Daily newspaper reported.

Veterinarians than decided to ask for help from Bao Xishun, a 7-foot-9-inch inch herdsman from Inner Mongolia.

Chen Lujun, the manager of the Royal Jidi Ocean World aquarium, told The Associated Press that the shape of the dolphins' stomachs made it difficult to push an instrument very far in without hurting the animals. People with shorter arms could not reach the plastic, he said.

"When we failed to get the objects out we sought the help of Bao Xishun from Inner Mongolia and he did it successfully yesterday," Chen said. "The two dolphins are in very good condition now."

Bao, 54, was confirmed last year by the Guinness Book of World Records as the world's tallest living man.Photographs showed the jaws of one of the dolphins being held back by towels so Bao, who has 41.7-inch arms, could reach inside the animal without being bitten.

"Some very small plastic pieces are still left in the dolphins' stomachs," Zhu Xiaoling, a local doctor, told Xinhua. "However the dolphins will be able to digest these and are expected to recover soon."

Pamela Anderson's pooches

Saturday, April 14, 2007 by Tony Haffner

Pamela Anderson is every guy's fantasy. She is beautiful, voluptuous, and drop-dead sexy. Born in Ladysmith, British Columbia, on July 1st, 1967 her parents got a medal as she was the first baby to be born on Canada's one-hundredth birthday. Spotted first by a videographer at a British Columbia Lions football game, she instantly became the Labatt's Blue-Zone Girl. This exposure led her to be the only woman to have appeared on the cover of Playboy more than any other woman in the magazine's history. Strong family bonds are very important to Pamela. She is very sensitive to the emotional needs of other people and loves to care for others.

Regarding her love for pets she has 2 dogs, Luca (a Chihuahua) and Star (a Golden Retriever). In the summer of 2005, Pamela Anderson turned her beloved Luca, into a cover model by posing with him on the front of dog lovers magazine Modern Dog. In the accompanying article, the former Baywatch babe had revealed that she's a doting Mum to her little dog because she's constantly worried he'll be dragged off by a big bird. She even explained, "I'm afraid a bird might swoop down and pick him up". She is also a dedicated spokesperson for animal rights group PETA and have rescued many small dogs before. She has shown a deep love for both of her dogs and trembles even at the thought of losing her pets. Star has been with Pam for 15 years and she hopes his healthy lifestyle will help him fight off illness and death for many years to come. They give her constant support and strength to carry on in life as she says.

There was a controversy in August,2005 over the marriage of her Golden Retriever Star with her Chihuahua Luca Pizzaroni Pasquini. The bow-wow vows were not witnessed by any other four-legged friends. Later, Anderson took her pups and joined with some friends for celebratory drinks.

Hilary Swank And Her Pets

by Tony Haffner

I think everyone has praised this million dollar hollywood actress for her outstanding role as Maggie Fitzgerald in the film "Million Dollar Baby". Her full name is Hilary Ann Swank and she is born on July 30, 1974. She has won the Oscar twice: in 1999 for Boys Don't Cry and in 2004 for the much talked about Million Dollar Baby. Her Hollywood film career began with a small part in Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1992) and then a major part in The Next Karate Kid (1994). Swank came from humble beginnings and described her younger self as an"outsider" who only enjoyed reading a book or watching a movie, and thought of getting involved with a character. This later inspired her to become an actress.

She came to the limelight last year when she filed a divorce from her actor-husband Chad Lowe. But again they had to rethink about their break up since, they faced a peculiar problem. Both Hilary and Lowe had a deep love for their pets and couldnot understand how to divide the pets amongst themselves. The couple owns several parrots, dogs, (including a sweet pup Karu), a cat and a rabbit and couldn't bear to live without the menagerie, and that fact has prompted the pair to rework on their marriage vows.

In an interview, she onced said that her childhood was lonely, and whenever Christmas and her birthday would come she always insisted her parents to buy her a dog or a cat. At the age of eight, she brought a stray cat and took it into her bedroom. But, her mom finally found him in. After much fit, the cat stayed with them. Hilary once had two gerbils named Moe and Joe. At present, she has an African gray parrot, named Seuss after Dr. Seuss, one of her favorite authors. He talks a lot according to Swank, and says "Good morning!". And during the day "Goodbye! and "I love you!" I personally am well aware of an african gray parrot since I too have one named Betty. She also has a border-collie mix named Lucky, a cat named Deuce and a little bunny named Luna. She has proved to be a great animal lover as she had stopped eating red meat, white meat, or fish.

APBTs

Monday, April 9, 2007 by Tony Haffner



Both Baltimore, MD and Washington, D.C. are seeking new proposals to ban "pit bulls". No importation, sale, or possession of pit bulls in Washington, D.C.n Baltimore will be allowed henceforth. The reason being a man murdered a pit bull owner who refused to fight his dog and in the Baltimore City, a pit bull attacked a 7 year old girl. Both the news was quite nerve-racking. But it's quite unfortunate for these dogs who once used to be the pride of America are now being hunted n killed unconditionally. One of the most obvious reasons being that originally they were raised as fighting dogs 'coz of their aggressive, outrageous nature. but given a proper "obedience training", they can turn out to be an affectionate companion and a lovely pet!

It was one of the most popular breeds, highly prized by a wide variety of people. The Pit Bull was used to represent the US in WW1 artwork. Popular companies like RCA and the Buster Brown Shoe Company used the breed as their mascots. A Pit Bull named Petie starred in the popular children's television series, Our Gang; a Pit Bull mix named Stubby became a decorated WW1 hero. Also, Laura Ingalls Wilder of the popular Little House books owned a working Pit Bulldog named Jack. Famous individuals like Theodore Roosevelt and Helen Keller owned this breed too! It was during this time that the Pit Bull truly became America's sweetheart; admired, respected and loved by everyone. The sly smile, those determined eyes, and that eager to please attitude have evoked both rational and irrational human emotions. By no means are this dogs people-haters or people-eaters. Their natural aggressive tendencies towards other dogs have earned them a bad name. However if they are properly socialized, they will not even be aggressive to them. Pit bulls are truly quality companions for quality owners only! They can turn out to be extremely loyal, clownish, good-natured and an affectionate animal; always ready to please the master. However, as with any breed, they shouldn't be left alone with unfamiliar children.

They are also not a good choice for a novice dog owner as inexperienced owners tend to find them to be too much to handle. APBTs often display some level of dog aggression, especially towards strange dogs of the same sex or level of assertiveness. We should remember their "fighting" character and even APBTs that were previously sociable may develop dog aggression as they mature. It's advisable for an APBT owner not to let their dog interact with strange dogs unsupervised.

And, it's absolutely necessary to adopt an APBT puppy, from a breeder who has puppies with good temperament and not with aggressive tendencies towards other dogs or humans. Hence, this breed of dog does not have natural watch dog tendencies. If not trained to be wary or bark at intruders, they would sooner lick a burglar to death than bite or attack. Unfortunately, this breed is also often the most common target of dog abuse in urban areas and are often found beaten, starved, burned, and mistreated to make them particularly aggressive. Some even choose to promote the fighting instinct in the breed, giving it a bad name! So, we must all look at them from a humanitarian ground and remember those American pit bulls who 've served our nation in a brave way! They stands as a symbol of power, passion and undying willingness.
