Tricia Ritterbusch, Farm Sanctuary
Instead of having turkey this Thanksgiving as the main course, why not have a turkey as a guest of honor instead? You can do this by adopting a turkey. Celebrate a compassionate new holiday tradition by saving a turkey instead of eating one. Listen as Tricia talks about alternatives, such a Tofurkey, to eating turkey this year.

World's Worst Dog
John Grogan, Marley & Me

Holiday Travel Stresses Out Pets
Tammy Senter, Farnam
It will soon be the holidays, and you are planning that visit to the in-laws. You can feel it already, your stress level is rising. But did you know that your pet's stress level can rise also? Pets like their routine, and the upcoming holidays can wreak havoc in their lives. But, you can help. For dogs, there is the Comfort Zone with D.A.P., and for cats, Comfort Zone with Feliway. These products mimic pheromones that pets naturally use to communicate with members of their own species, and come in both diffusers and sprays.

Pet Trusts & Clauses
James Peters, Legal Zoom
Do you know that more people own pets than have children, and that they are often overlooked in wills? One of the best ways to make sure your pet is taken care of if he outlives you, is with a Pet Trust. The benefits of a Pet Trust are greater than that of a will, because a will only takes place in the event of your death, while a Pet Trust will kick-in in the event you have a serious illness or become incapacitated. Hear how you can easily set up your own Pet Trust.

Regular Grooming is Essential to Your Pet's Well Being
Dr. Jill Richardson, Hartz Mountain Corporation
Do you know that regular grooming can help prevent bacterial infection, dandruff and hair matting? VMX PetVantage products by Hartz offers convenient tools to help keep your pet's coat clean and healthy at home. Do you have a pet that doesn't like to be bathed, or perhaps a cat (whom we all know hate to be bathed)? If so, there is the convenient VMX PetVantage Hair Grabber and the Pet & Clean Tacky Mitts that clean without moisture and leaves a spring fresh fragrance your pet. Grooming is also a terrific way to bond with your pet by spending quality time getting pets accustomed to being handled and brushed at an early age and lavishing them with praise and treats.

Dolphins Sing "Batman" Theme
Britt Savage
Scientists have taught dolphins to combine both rhythm and vocalisations to produce music, resulting in an extremely high-pitched, short version of the Batman theme song.

The findings, outlined in two studies, are the first time that nonhuman mammals have demonstrated they can recognize rhythms and reproduce them vocally.

It Isn't Easy Being Green
A dog breeder in Alhambra, Calif., is mystified after his golden retriever gave birth to a green puppy. The green puppy, named Wasabi, was one of four puppies. The dog is healthy and green, according to the report.

Skeptics said the dog had to be dyed green but the owner said the puppy was born green. Veterinarians said it is possible for a newborn puppy's fur to be green because the placenta, which is green, rubs off at birth.
