John Woestendiek at the Baltimore Sun did a great job on an article called, A Dog’s Life.
In affluent areas pets enjoy the good life but in other areas this is not the case. In my business I am actually focusing on early pet hood education since I think this is an area NOT getting enough attention. Pampered pets without rules become aggressive and naughty…but that is another story.

About a year ago I read about a unqiue type of coffee processing. Recently Paul Watson at the LA Times reported about kopi luwak a very expensive coffee–which has to pass through the digestive system of a civet cat…and you guessed it, after it gets pooped out it is processed and sold for about $600 a pound–but hey, you can get a cup for about $30–don’t spill!
ALSO, the link between SARS and Civets hit the news in late 2006 so you might NOT want to consume the stuff.
You may have remember that I placed links to stories about war dogs and other military animals in the past but I just found and really enjoyed this article on Four Footed Soldiers.
