    It's that time of the year again. That's right - it's time to hide your Thanksgiving turkey before your four-legged friend finds it first. Despairing dog owners in the US have been shaming their greedy pooches on social media with signs detailing their crimes. In one photo, a hungry Rottweiler is shamed after taking a sizeable chunk out of a turkey while it was being roasted over a fire. In another, a brazen mutt called Scotty is seen cowering beneath a blanket next to a sign reading: 'I ate all the leftover turkey, peed on the bathroom mat and pooped...

    Japan says lunar chasm measuring 50km long and 100 metres wide could be used as a base for astronauts and their equipment.Scientists have fantasised for centuries about humans colonising the moon.

The discovery, by Japan’s Selenological and Engineering Explorer (Selene) probe, comes as several countries vie to follow the US in sending manned missions to the moon. Using a radar sounder system that can examine underground structures,...

    No puppies were harmed when it came to throwing the bouquetA bride-to-be in Iowa is hoped to raise awareness of dog rescue efforts by replacing her bridal party's bouquets with puppies, meaning her wedding photos would be totally adorable.

Samantha Clark's bridesmaids held tiny Chiweenie dogs instead of flowers to highlight the work of a local pet rescue centre that has been providing extra care for animals stranded by Hurricane Harvey. So she picked pups as the symbol of her marriage vow-wow-wows.

Melissa Butt, the children’s grandmother, immediately rushed both dogs to an emergency vet. “We need to get the anti-venom quickly, in order for them to get a good prognosis. It is very, very painful,” Dr....

    When Brad and Molly Nemec’s Dodge Durango broke down in downtown Stillwater last month, they called City Hall to explain that it would be stranded overnight. The Lindstrom, Minn., couple, who rescue Jindu dogs destined for slaughter in Korea, were on their way to pick up six dogs in Wisconsin when their SUV overheated near Teddy Bear Park. The dogs, flown from Seoul to Chicago, had been picked up at O’Hare International Airport by a friend of Nemec’s. The friend planned to meet the Nemecs near the Wisconsin Dells, a halfway point between their home and the Chicago airport. “We...

    We all get moved by images we see. Some images make us angry, some make us sad, yet others will make us laugh. Here is an image of two dogs, and only God knows what is going through their heads. We can all speculate, yet 99% of us will be wrong. Why? Because no one but God knows. People anthropomorphize animals in many ways, but often times the animals just do things themselves (without training) which remind us of human behavior. This behavior probably helped our ancestors understand other creatures that would help us get to where we are....

    GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip — Atayeb Odeh is crazy about dogs. He got his first when he was one-year-old, his second aged three and third when he was five. He’s now 17 and proudly shows off Liza — a gangly and gregarious German shepherd. But the high school senior cannot take Liza and her pal Rex — a white-and-brown mutt — beyond the front gate of his family's compound. Hamas — the militant group that runs the poor, Israeli-blockaded Gaza Strip — recently decreed dogs can’t be walked in markets, roads and along beaches. That ruling angered dog owners in...

    A German shepherd puppy named Gavel couldn't quite cut it as a police dog, as he was too friendly with strangers to catch criminals. Not every pup is cut out to be a police dog. One such puppy, a German shepherd named Gavel, flunked out of police training in Australia in February after he was found to "not display the necessary aptitude for a life on the front line." As BBC reports, the problem was that Gavel was "too sociable," and enjoyed meeting strangers a little too much to make a career out of catching criminals. Unfortunately, he was too much...
