Poor kitty! Never had a cat who had to wear an Elizabethan/lampshade/cone collar? Bryan over at PaperFoldables has made it possible for you to print and put together your very own. Will provide hours of entertainment! (Bryan also has a papercraft version of Michael Jackson’s red, leather coat in honor of his passing.)

Karen Pryor will be on GMA Tuesday the 16th between 8:30am-9am demonstrating clicker training and promoting her new book, Reaching The Animal Mind.
Clicker Training is a force-free, non-coercive way to train your pets (cats too). In the training stage, it relies on using a “clicker” to specifically mark the behavior you want—sit, down, etc. Karen Pryor was an early adopter of clicker training with pets and has popularized it with a number of excellent books.
Dyno, a 1 week old Cocker Spaniel puppy, was rescued from a sewage pipe after accidentally being flushed down a toilet in England. How does a puppy get accidentally flushed? It can happen when a 4 yr. old child has unsupervised access to a puppy and tries to give it a bath. The local plumbing company was critical in the rescue using a camera to locate the puppy 20 yards from the house. They then prodded the soggy pup down the pipe to a manhole where he was pulled the safety. Little Dyno was named after the plumbing company, Dyno Rod.
