I love dogs. Especially English Bulldogs. But, as far as I’ve read, these dogs are in danger! Due to excessive breeding, the English Bulldog is now a dog who cannot reproduce itself without a doctor’s help.
Last year the BBC refused to broadcast Crufts Kennel Club Dog Show, the biggest show in Europe due to the fact that the Kennel Club from England refused to admit that dog breeds are in danger! Only after the dog show, the English Kennel Club announced some changes in some dog breeds standards.
Watch the video below to find out more about the cruel life of pedigree dogs!
All I can say is: amazing! I’m amazed by this and I have lots of respect for someone who can do such brilliant mural mosaic.

I guess that you already know about the prestigious Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition, a 46 year old photo contest organized annually by the Natural History Museum and BBC Wildlife Magazine.
In 2009 the winner of the best photo, José Luis Rodriguez, who presumably took a remarkable photo of a Siberian Grey Wolf, was disqualified after the jury found out that the wolf is not wild but tamed and the wolf’s name is Ossian. Naughty boy Jose!
Anyhow, if you want to participate in the Wildlife Photographer of the 2010 competition, you can still send your photos until march 5th 2010.
Here are some of the winners of the 2009 Veolia Environnement wildlife photographer of the year:
- Fergus Gill (United Kingdom)
- Raindrop refresher by András Mészáros (Hungary)
- Intimate death by Miles Kenzo Kooren (Netherlands)
- Borneo baby by Brian Matthews (United Kingdom)

Who’s going to win this awful and dreadful fight? The mighty aggressive and fast Chihuahua? Or shall it be the impressive, very confident and powerful Longhorn Rooster?
I bet my money on the rooster. That dog is just too small to win any fight. Although, I have to give him the credit for the violent reaction.
p.s: if you want a dog, do not purchase a chihuahua! Those are vicious, bad, evil creatures! They will make you look like slutty Paris Hilton. And if you don’t have her money, then you’ll just look like a stupid cunt!
I don’t know what those people were thinking when they let that poor cute little girl play with that ferocious pitbull! Everybody know that pitbulls are very dangerous and can rip a man’s arm in an instant!
Some people should not have dogs, that’s for sure! Poor girl…
For those of you who, for some reason, can’t see the video above, let me straight things out: this is an example of how media exaggerate over stuff regarding aggressive dogs. Indeed, there are aggressive pitbulls, or Amstaff or Bulldogs(!), Rottweilers, Dobermans or especially Chihuahua’s, but that doesn’t mean that all dogs are aggressive. Moreover, if you raise a dog to be bad and aggressive, then I would not guarantee that a bad dog wouldn’t bite your ass when you’ll piss him off.
So, the moral part of this post: get your dog a decent and proper training. And if you want an aggressive dog, think again!
For all misogynists out there and for all men who are under pressure. The theoretical proof that woman are the root of all problems:
p.s: chill, it’s just a joke. no need to take it personally
This is quite old, I know, but I just found out about it. So, the story is like this:
Zoologist Mark Carwardine along side Stephen Fry were making a documentary about animals on the edge of extinction. If you don’t already know, in New Zealand there’s this parrot, the largest of all but who can’t fly, who is so rare that few people really got to see one.
Because this parrot cannot fly, he adopts a simple and not always effective strategy: he stays very still! Before mankind discovered many wild islands, especially in the New Zealand area, these parrots were happy with their life. When humans got to know about Kakapo Parrots and brought felines with them, well, the poor birds were facing a great danger: cats!
As far as I’ve read about these birds, there are plans about evacuating an island for Kakapo Parrots where cats and other predators don’t have access to, in order to prevent the extinction of this wonderful bird.
Well, as I was saying in the beginning, Stephen Fry and Mark Carwardine were making a BBC documentary when, all of a sudden, this Kakapo bird comes and starts shagging the photographers head. It’s hilarious!
The people from Expert Village show us how to teach a ferret use the litter box. Ferrets, like cats, can be trained to do all sorts of stuff. More important: a ferret is adapting it’s program to your schedule. This means that when you’re not home, we’ll most probably sleep as much as he can and when you’ll get home, he’ll be ready for games and you can relax while playing with your ferret.
Also, a male ferret must be neutered by the age of 6 months otherwise he’ll learn to mark his territory and I can tell you that ferret urine stinks very bad!!!
If your local vet doesn’t have ferret vaccines, a cat vaccine will do. They must get the shot against rabies.
