We just bought a Kodak Sport camera, and have been having some fun with it.

Puppy with broken legs crawls home after surviving tornado

A puppy crawled home with two broken legs after being thrown high into the air by a tornado that ripped through Alabama.
Mason, a terrier mix, was feared dead after the storm but was found two weeks later by his owners in the wreckage of their home.
“This is probably the most dramatic we’ve seen as far as an injury in an animal that’s survived this long,” said Phil Doster at Birmingham Jefferson County Animal Control shelter, who is caring for Mason following surgery. The shelter has dealt with hundreds of pets hurt by the storms.
“For an animal just to show up on someone’s porch after this time was pretty remarkable, especially with the condition he’s in.”

Saved: Mason had surgery on his legs fter being thrown high into the air by a tornado.

Cheekymomma Potcake Review – Hawaiian Dog Collars

 Thanks to Bridget from the Cheekymomma blog for her POTCAKE review.

Click here to for review link.

Potcake Collars has stylish collars and bandanas for your dog, no matter how big or how small.  Available in 3 different sizes to ensure the perfect fit.

 

Our Brazillian mastiff, Rocky, has been sporting his new “Yellow Tail” Potcake Collar all over town.  
I must say that the yellow looks wonderful on him, bright and adorable!  I love how it looks against his black fur.  It stands out and makes a statement.  Proving that boys can wear flowers and still look tough.
 The collar is high quality and looks great.  Strong and durable while being soft and flexible, making it comfortable for your dog to wear.
  The variety of colors and designs are wonderful.  Everything from hot pink to neon green, bright red to dark blue.  Plus, all Potcake Collars are machine washable.

I was impressed at how quickly my collar arrived.  In addition, the clasp is easy to open but latches tightly.  So easy that my kids can easily take it on and off the puppy as needed.

 

POTCAKers – Tropical Dog Wear

Hello All!

Hope everyone is well. I’m sorry for the slow down in the blog. We have been very busy the last 4-6 weeks. We have had major renovations going on here at POTCAKE headquarters. We are almost finished. I will have a headquarters update in the next week or so as we complete the finishing touches. Exciting things coming soon for the POTCAKE Nation. In the mean time here are some shots of a couple POTCAKers from Cananda. Piper and Kali.

Frozen Dog Sperm Produces Puppies 21 Years Later

Dog sperm that was frozen for 21 years has produced a litter of 10 Great Dane puppies.

According to Fox News, Dr. David Hopkins from Bellarine Veterinary Practice in Geelong, Australia, was delighted at the outcome of the in vitro fertilization (IVF) procedure.

Hopkins said  that in 1989, his client, Deidre McRae, had asked him to store sperm from one of her prized Great Danes. More than 20 years later, long after the dog’s death, his sperm has led to a new generation. The healthy puppies are now 8 weeks old.

Breeding dogs using frozen sperm is not new technology, Hopkins told the Geelong Advertiser. He said the procedure is commonly used to breed professional sniffer dogs for Australian Customs.

However, he said it was remarkable that semen frozen for more than 20 years could produce such a large, healthy litter.

Happy dog mom McRae told the Geelong Advertiser she was “over the moon” with the results. “I was hoping for one or even two, but to have 10 is just unbelievable,” she said.

McRae plans to keep some of the puppies as show dogs and sell the others.
