Today is Spay Day across the USA

My dog says everyone who has a companion animal should know the following statistic: In six years, one female dog and her offspring can produce 67,000 dogs. In seven years, it's possible for one female cat and her offspring to produce approximately 420,000 cats. Yes, nearly half a million cats! What does that mean in the long run? Between six to eight million of those animals enter U.S shelters every year--and about half of them are killed.

Today is Spay Day and spay/neuter clinics across the country are offering free or low cost altering to curb those births and subsequent deaths. What can you do to celebrate Spay Day? If your companion animal isn't fix, do it (besides, it protects them from a variety of cancers and diseases associated with the reproductive system)! If he or she is already altered, why not offer to pay to have someone else's animal fixed? Animals can't wear condoms, so do for them what they cannot do for themselves!

P.S. This poster below is one of my favorites. Mickey Rourke gets a double woof for speaking out in favor of spay/neuter!

So you bought a dog from a breeder?

My dog says he thinks this video is incredibly thought provoking. If you've ever bought a companion animal, or know someone who has, this is something you have to see.

Here's what happens when this animal-loving family finalizes the papers to purchase their new dog.

Smart squirrel seeks shelter from snow

My dog says he loves this photo of a squirrel using her tail to protect herself from the snow. Who says rodents aren't smart?

Subaru goes to the dogs

My dog says that Subaru has created a wonderful new series of commercials with dogs as the stars! The spot below is my favorite, but be sure to check out the others, too (Fire Drill, Drive Thru, Stolen Parking Spot, Parallel Parking, High Maintenance, and Radio).

Nothing like a good dog angle to get me hooked!

Chained dogs deserve better

My dog says this comic below is absolutely heartbreaking. People who chain their dogs sentence them to a life of lonliness, despair, and emotional and physical neglect. Dogs are pack animals who crave companionship and interaction with their human families--not a solitary life with a chain around their necks!

My dog says he doesn't understand why so many humans think they are smarter or better than animals. Check out this AMAZING video below and tell me that animals don't think and feel.

Why do animals always get the short end of the stick?

My dog says he loves the image below. No commentary on this one. Just something to think about.
