While out in the country side one weekend walking the dog, I happened to find this skull. Other than it being something like a dog I’ve no real idea what type of dog it is. So, if you know, then please feel free to let me know.

All I did to the skull was to wash it and clean it in a little bleach, otherwise it is as seen here.

Dog Plush Stuffed Animal Toys like this Beagle are adorable. Plush stuffed animal toys provide joy, companionship and always make you smile.


Chesapeake, VA (PRWEB) May 14, 2009

Enjoying wildlife or having a pet is a wonderful experience. To capture that special love Anwo.com Animal World provides an engaging line of animal and pet lover theme gifts including plush stuffed animals, throw blankets, animal crossing signs, toy miniatures, earrings, figurines, puppets, shirts, neckties, backpacks and nature sound CDs. Everyone likes to have fun and “Animal World’s animal and pet themed gifts are designed to help you smile, laugh and show pride.”

Animals work their way into our lives every day. Schools and universities often adopt animals as their mascot. Businesses frequently work with animals in advertising and sales. With the stock market in limbo economists are labeled as either bulls or bears. You could for example display a bull crossing sign at work to remind others of your personality or maybe your daughter might want a tiger crossing sign to show off her school spirit, “the possibilities for animal theme gifts are endless.” Animal and pet gifts like animal crossing signs are designed to offer fun while simultaneously being functional.

Gifts for animal and pet lovers can also touch feelings close to the heart. Most everyone has had a pet dog or cat from which a strong relationship builds and ends sadly with the pets passing. People then look for collectible gifts to help them remember this special moment of time when their pet was a member of the family. People can also become separated from their pets due to college, duty or hospitalization. These tough times apart can often be softened with the gift of dog plush stuffed animals or similar pet plush. “Stuffed animal plush toys make wonderful gifts for college students, soldiers away from home and patients in the hospital”

Schools and educators utilize animals to help bring enthusiasm to their school curriculum. Students studying the ocean, farm, desert, jungle, rivers, mountains and prehistoric are often in need of props for presentations or dioramas displaying animal life cycles or habitat. For these needs ” Animal Toy Miniatures are inexpensive, educational play fun and perfect for school projects.” Another large part of learning is story time and story telling. Teachers are always looking for aids but more importantly ways to become more inspiring for students. A creative solution that combines fun and education is teacher use of animal puppets. With these the teacher or the student’s personality can be brought out through animal animation but most important “Animal Puppets make education more fun.”

Animal and pet lover theme gifts have also had impact on lifestyle and fashion. Some people love the beach, with dolphins playing in the surf and pelicans flying overhead. Others prefer venturing into the mountains to see wolves, deer, and eagles. A lucky few have experienced an African safari with elephants, hippos, giraffes and zebras. Afterwords, you are left only with memories of the beautiful animals. To recapture that animal experience of a lifetime, “you should treat yourself with a beautiful pair of gold animal earrings hand made in the USA.” Whether for casual or formal Animal Earrings Jewelry can put a smile on your face and animal love in your heart by combining wildlife fashion and fun. Animal lifestyle themes also weave their way into home decor and decorating. Some people like to create beach decor, a feeling of springtime, thoughts of warmth, or highly defined specific animal theme decor. Throw blanket tapestries in wildlife, dogs, cats or horses can help you design the home decor animal theme of your dreams. Animal and pet theme blanket tapestries can be displayed on a wall, draped over a sofa, laid on a bed or just used to highlight. “Best of all these Animal Throw Blankets are made in the USA” of comfortable 3 ply cotton.

Throughout the country concerned animal lovers organize dog rescues. For example Golden Retriever owners will foster golden retrievers until someone looking for a Golden Retriever comes along for adoption. Anwo.com Animal World works with rescues throughout the USA by donating dog t shirts for fund raising. Rescue fund raising activities are rewarding by turning pet misfortune into pet triumph and “dog t shirts give pet owners a sense of pride in their breed.”

Anwo.com “Animal World looks forward to a second decade of providing smiles, fun, and pride for animal lovers throughout the USA and worldwide.” Anwo.com Animal World is proud member of BBB Online and Hampton Roads Chamber of Commerce.

Q&A: Why are some people insane animal lovers?

Question by crf450ish: Why are some people insane animal lovers?
There IS a noticeable difference between your typical average animal lover and someone who is literally mentally unbalanced to the point where they perceive animals as human beings. For example my mothers old friend (old as in no longer friends) has/had 4 large breed dogs that were always in the house. They took priority in this ladys life. As well as her other animals outside. Once I asked why she chooses to deal with the pain in the butt that comes with having large dogs inside and she immediately took offense to my question and started getting defensive as if I threatened the lives of the dogs. I dropped the subject quickly and went outside to get away. Another reason I ask is because I see so many people that think its cruel to discipline animals or to train them with force. By force I mean an electric training collar on a dog or a muzzle on a dog or tying a horse to a post with a lead rope to let it get used to be tied up without a human next to it etc etc. it’s almost like these people believe that not allowing animals to do whatever they want when they want is a crime and that the human that commits this said crime should like receive the death penalty. Anytime you view a video on YouTube about how to use any kind of “forceful” training method rather it be an electric dog collar or what have you, the comments section is a neverending stream of “people who use these should die” “dog killers” “lets train your kids not to wet the bed with a shock collar” etc. Were these people deprived of something as children that would cause them to react and act this way when it comes to animals? Now before the yahoo answers world starts to go nuts on me allow me to clarify, I am in no way condoning animal cruelty nor do I agree with all methods of training of animals. I am simply seeking understanding as to why some people go overboard with this. Thank you.
Jazmin s- I’m not saying its a bad thing to have a soft spot for animals. No offense but your answer didn’t have anything to do with my question. You basically explained yourself and then defended your explanation.

Lucky Dog Animal Rescue Passes 16,000 Facebook Fans

Lucky Dog Animal Rescue Passes 16,000 Facebook Fans













LDAR alum Fella one year after adoption!


Washington, DC (PRWEB) September 10, 2013

Lucky Dog Animal Rescue (LDAR) has more than 16,00 fans on Facebook, making them the most followed rescue in the Washington DC area. LDAR’s fans base is not limited to the DC area but is truly national in scope. Fans are particularly drawn to the many “success stories” that are posted on the group’s page each day.

Facebook is one of the biggest social networking in the world. LDAR uses their Facebook page to recruit volunteers and fosters, raise money for dogs and cats in need, and share stories about the rescue’s success.

“Because we are a volunteer run organization with no physical location, Facebook is an essential tool for getting our pets the help and care they need,” said Mirah Horowitz, founder and executive director of Lucky Dog Animal Rescue. “We are thrilled with the growing size of our Facebook family.”

Facebook is particularly important for LDAR’s fundraising efforts. LDAR is supported solely by adoption fees and donations. Currently, LDAR is using facebook to support fundraisers for three specific animals: Leeland, a dog who underwent an expensive MRI in an effort to find the cause of his fly-biting seizures; Zeke, a dog who needs an MRI to determin the cause of extreme shoulder pain, and Leo, a kitten who needs a leg amputation due to a severe broken leg. Fundraising efforts for each of these animals are ongoing.

LDAR relies on the support of the community not just for fundraising but to help keep its mission going. Facebook is an important way for LDAR to advertise adoption events and volunteer opportunities. LDAR also uses Facebook to advance its educational mission, sharing articles on pet health, training, boarding, and more.

LDAR’s most popular posts are the success stories of dogs living with their forever families. “Success stories really highlight what drives every one of our more than 1,000 volunteers to put in endless hours finding adoptive homes for our dogs and cats,” said Horowitz. “There are so many sad stories out there. So many pets in need. We try to highlight the good work or our team, the light at the end of the tunnel.”

Boise, ID (PRWEB) August 21, 2013

Pets Best Insurance, a leading U.S. pet insurance agency based in Boise, announced today it will donate flying discs to dog parks and animal shelters throughout the Treasure Valley. The hardy toys will be distributed over the next few weeks to a total of six dog parks in Boise, Meridian and Nampa, as well as several animal shelters in the area.

At the parks, the flying discs will be available for visitors to grab freely to toss to their dogs. The toys are ideal for outdoor excursions with canines, as the plastic discs are designed to withstand all weather conditions. If dogs are reluctant to part with the available flying discs, Pets Best will supply replacements for the parks. Donated flying discs will be available at the following parks:


Morris Hill Dog Park, 10 N. Roosevelt St., Boise
Military Reserve, 750 N. Mountain Cove Road, Boise
Pine Grove Park, 8995 Shoup Drive, Boise
West Boise Dog Park, 9851 W. Irving St., Boise
Meridian Bark Park, 1401 E. Watertower, Meridian
Nampa Dog Park, 2900 Second St. South, Nampa

The flying discs distributed to local animal shelters will provide many dogs with new ways to exercise with volunteers. Play time and exercise can play an important role in keeping dogs healthy, in addition to reducing boredom and stress.

“At Pets Best Insurance, we feel privileged to work and reside in such a pet-friendly community,” said Dr. Jack Stephens, founder and president of Pets Best Insurance. “We hope these donations of flying discs serve to provide pet owners and their four-legged family members with new opportunities to enjoy the Treasure Valley’s wonderful dog parks. While Pets Best insures dogs and cats across the nation, we embrace the opportunity to reach dogs in our own backyard.”

Dr. Stephens, a veterinarian, founded the pet insurance industry in the U.S. in the early 1980s with the aim of reducing euthanasia when pet owners couldn’t afford veterinary treatment. Dr. Stephens launched Pets Best Insurance in 2005.

What is the actual cost of the anesthesia used for an animal dental cleaning?

Question by Peace_love_granola: What is the actual cost of the anesthesia used for an animal dental cleaning?
To put a 15 lb dog “under” anesthesia for a dental cleaning, what is the cost differential, compared to what a veterinarian pays to rent/buy a whole tank of anesthesia? I once heard that it was about 40 cents, but that seems nuts, since most vets charge between $ 250.00 and $ 1200.00 for a routine dental cleaning these days… Thanks for any help!

Best answer:

Answer by Heidi
I’m sure it’s more than 40 cents. The gloves that each surgeon uses during the procedure are probably 40 cents.

I couldn’t find the price of a tank of anesthesia, but I do know that, at an average vet’s office, for a dog up to 10 lbs, anesthesia is $ 118 and it’s another $ 5 for every pound. When you add that to the cost of the actual procedure, you can end up in the $ 3-400 range. The best way to handle your pet’s dental health is to clean them yourself with a soft toothbrush once a week. They also make chew toys that are specially for dental cleaning. If your animal is showing signs of plaque (black or brown around gumline) there is a spray sold that you can use to help break it down.

Most animals don’t need surgical dental cleanings until they are older (like, 10+) as long as you take care of their teeth until then.
