Poodle Honored For Road Safety Efforts with Britt Savage
A poodle which can walk on its hind legs has been honored by Japanese police for its efforts to promote road safety. Pluto walked 20 metres on his hind legs over a pedestrian crossing, wearing a sash bearing the words 'traffic safety' during a national road safety campaign. Impressed passers-by put the four-year-old poodle up for an award for educating them on the importance of road safety, reports Mainichi Daily News.
The dog walked into the police station at Ise on its hind legs to receive a prize of some dog food from Chief Etsujiro Kurachi who said: "Thank you, Pluto."


Hero Dog to be Cats' Meow
This will probably be the first time a dog's memorial service is attended by 300 cats.
A Schnauzer-Siberian husky mix named Ginny will be eulogized Saturday at the 30th annual Westchester Cat Show, where she was named Cat of the Year in 1998 for her uncanny skill and bravery in finding and rescuing endangered tabbies.

Ginny died in August at age 17, after a long career as a one-dog rescue party for hundreds of cats on Long Island's South Shore who were abandoned, injured or in harm's way.

Among the best-known rescues is the time Ginny threw herself against a vertical pipe at a construction site to topple it and reveal kittens trapped inside. She once ignored cuts on her paws as she dug through a box of broken glass to find an injured cat.
