U.S. Military Mascot Comes to the United
Captain John Smathers
Captain John Smathers returned from Iraq with a broken arm, a wrecked knee and a chest full of medals. He is one of the most decorated soldiers involved in removing Saddam from power. During his tour, he thwarted a bank robbery and recovered stolen artwork. When he returned to the United States, he was determined to complete one final mission; to rescue Scout, a dog he met in Baghdad a year prior.
You might think bringing the loyal dog back to the U.S. might be easy for a soldier that fought so diligently in the name of America. Not so. Hear this great story of Scout.
Emily Yoffe, What The Dog Did
Emily discovered the world of canine freestyle (you could call it "dog dancing" but just not in front of anyone who does it) one night while watching an episode of the cartoon King of the Hill, in which Hank Hill and his beloved bloodhound, Ladybird, entered the vicious world of competitive dog dancing. It suddenly dawned on her, they were not making this up. She eventually enrolled both herself and her dog Sasha, but they never actually "dog danced." Find out why.
Finding Love When You Own a Pet
Sheryl Matthys, Leashes & Lovers
Finding love is hard enough. Finding love when you own a pet can be even harder. Single pet owners realize that finding someone who is equally excited about them as Fido is when they come home, ain't always "a walk in the park." Creator and Co-Host Sheryl Matthys thinks she can resolve those issues with a show called "Heads or Tails," a half hour reality pet lovers dating show. Each episode will be action packed from doggie yoga to pet tricks and even a catfight or two between spurned pet owners. Getting someone to accept and love you is one thing having them love and accept your pet is another.
Avian Flu - Can Your Pets Catch It?
Merritt Clifton, Animal People
Currently, the Avian Flu is not a problem in the United States. It does not spread person to person, and is not a threat to our pets. The Avian Flu (H5N1) has been around since 1996 in Asia, and has claimed only 65 people. These people were in close proximity to birds, such as those who worked with poultry, those that shared their home with fowl, or those that were involved in cockfighting. Tune in for more facts about the Avian flu.
What Your Dog Can Teach You About Living
a Happy Life
Matt Weinstein, Dogs Don't Bite When a Growl Will Do
If you have ever truly observed a dog, then you know there is much we can learn from them. Have you ever noticed how dogs are happy much of the time? The little things don't seem to bother them. Try spending a day acting like a dog, and see what a difference it makes to you and those around you. Dogs have a natural quality called "Mudita" which means "Joy in the joy of others." And the most important thing a dog can teach you is to be selfless with your love.
Inmates Welcome Cats Orphaned by Katrina
Prison is a refuge for about two dozen cats displaced by Hurricane Katrina, a place filled with women happy to be able to soothe away their trauma and fear. Four Pocahontas Correctional Unit inmates have been caring for the cats since they made the cramped 20-hour truck ride last month from an overwhelmed Mississippi shelter. The women see it as a chance to help not only the abandoned pets, but also the hurricane relief effort and even themselves. "They've had a long journey," said inmate Wendy Brickey, 45, her eyes brimming with tears. "I get the chance to make it OK."

Lost Dog Catches Train Home Alone
A black Labrador called Archie, who got separated from his owner at a remote Scottish railway station, amazed his distraught master by simply jumping aboard the first train home all by himself. Not only did Archie catch the right train, he got off at the right station almost 20 miles away. Closed-circuit television footage shows the dog waiting for his master at the station before watching the Aberdeen to Inverness train pull in. Apparently, Archie decided to avoid the long walk home by simply hopping on board and getting off at the right stop.
