Does your pet trump your spouse in the listening department?

My dog says a new poll by the Associated Press and says pets are frequently better listeners than spouses. One-third of married women and nearly one-fifth of married men say their companion animal listens more than their significant other. Is that really any surprise?

You don't know sleep walking until you see this pup

Lizards love their skin, too

My dog says although ignorance is bliss, you should really know the origin of your clothes. Have a lizard skin belt you love? How about some crocodile shoes? No doubt the lizard and croc loved their skin (and their lives) more than you love your accessories.

To learn about the exotic skins trade, check out the video below from animal lover Joaquin Phoenix. Want to make a real change? Why not stop buying and wearing the skins from these creatures? They need their skin to survive and live their lives in peace. (Worried about still looking stylish?

Chains are for tires, not dogs

My dog says if you have a heart, this video will move you to tears---and action. Dogs are social animals who want nothing more than to be near their human families. There is nothing crueler than to sentence your dog to a life outside on a chain. Nothing.
