The dogs, flown from Seoul to Chicago, had been picked up at O’Hare International Airport by a friend of Nemec’s.

    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....

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...

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...
