Quick, easy and good smelling tear stain remover for dogs

717sm+OAK3L._SL1500_

My darling Cavalier, Pretzel, gets yucky tear stains that don't smell too great. Well and Good Tear Stain for dogs cleans them up.

Pretzel, like many of the Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, I've lived with likes to sleep on my head. Luckily, I'm bald and this serves as a heated, and kinda snuggly, stocking cap. Unfortunately it can smell really, really bad when her tear ducts have formed crunchy masses of fur under her eyes, and around her snout.

The stuff works quick and easy, just apply the remover to a cotton ball or a paper towel, and wipe away the stinky stuff.

Will we ever live in a world without pets?

ff7_bb
Today we travel to a future without pets. What would it take for us to give up our fuzzy, slithery, fishy friends? Should our pets get more rights? And if we didn’t have dogs or cats, would we domesticate something else to take their place?

In this episode we also run through a couple of possible ways we might wind up in a pet-free world. Which, to me, sound really sad. Thankfully (spoiler alert) it’s probably never going to happen.

99-year-old woman wakes to an exotic "honey bear" sleeping on her chest

012616+kinkajou+in+miami+home

This is a kinkajou, or "honey bear," a mammal who usually calls the Central and South American rainforests its home. That's far from Miami, Florida, where one scared the hell out of a 99-year-old woman who woke up to find it sleeping on her chest. The animal ran off into the attic where her son-in-law was able to lure it into a cage. He brought it to the South Dade Avian & Exotic Animal Medical Center where veterinarian Don J. Harris identified it.

“I don’t know, I guess her first impression was it might be a cat, but when they both got a look at each other, they both freaked out," Harris said.

According to the Miami Herald, the kinkajou's owner has been found. Read the rest
