    Taiwan has passed landmark animal protection laws imposing fines for the consumption of dog and cat meat as well as jail time for those who kill and torture animals. The Animal Protection Act amendments approved by the Legislative Yuan on Tuesday punish the sale, purchase or consumption of dog or cat meat with fines ranging from NT$50,000 to NT$2 million. The amendment's sponsor, Kuomintang Legislator Wang Yu-min, said that while some localities already had measures banning dog and cat meat consumption, national legislation was needed. She noted that Taiwan was the first country in Asia to pass such legislation.

    WHO'S SIDE ARE YOU ON? Dogs? What is a Dog? Dogs spend all day sprawled on the most comfortable piece of furniture in the house. They can hear a package of food opening half a block away, but don't hear you when you're in the same room. They can look dumb and lovable all at the same time. They growl when they are not happy. When you want to play, they want to play. When you want to be alone, they want to play. They leave their toys everywhere. CONCLUSION: They're tiny men in little fur coats. Where Dogs...

    These days, it’s not enough to just bring Spot to the groomer. If you really want your dog to dazzle — and you have a chunk of cash to spend — you can take him in for a nip-tuck. Edgard Brito, a São Paulo vet and plastic surgeon, told DuJour that he wants his procedures to make pets more lovable to their owners. “I often say that a clean dog with well-kept teeth will always be in better contact with its owners, otherwise the dog ends up being [put to sleep],” he said.

    The family's veterinarian also says the same thing. But Aurora Animal Control thinks Capone is a wolf-hybrid. "It's been real painful," 11-year-old Ciara Abbato said. "Our German shepherd, Capone, got out Feb. 24. He jumped the fence. It’s the first time in the seven years we’ve lived here," said Capone’s owner, Tracy Abbato. Aurora Animal Control picked up Capone that day, but turned away his family when they tried taking him home. "They say he is a hybrid-wolf now and don't want to release (him) back to us because he is an exotic animal,” Abbato said. The city ran a...

    A Muslim taxi-driver in England, one Abandi Kassim, was recently fined for refusing to take on a blind passenger’s seeing-eye dog because, as Kassim claimed: “For me, it’s about my religion.” There have been many such cases in the U.S., the UK, and Canada of Muslims refusing to pick up fares with seeing-eye dogs. Many of the Somali taxi drivers who made up three-quarters of the 900 taxi drivers at the Minneapolis airport refused to pick up blind passengers because of their dogs. When forced to do so, some of them simply quit.

    Dogs aren't as honest and obedient as they might like to have us think. We think we're in control but new research shows that dogs can be very deceptive - especially when it involves them getting an extra sausage. Scientists found that dogs can be sneaky and manipulative in order to get what they want from humans.

    By Emily Zanotti | 2:12 pm, February 27, 2017 The Dakota Access Pipeline protesters left more behind than just piles of trash when they were booted from their makeshift camp: they left several dogs and puppies to fend for themselves, abandoned with the rest of their unwanted belongings. Furry Friends Rockin Rescue, a local animal rescue near Bismark, North Dakota, says they’re working to catch all of the abandoned animals, and so far, they’ve managed to rescue two dogs and six puppies. They believe, however, that the dogs represent only a small fraction of the pets left behind at the...
