Golden Poodle awards for February

The Golden Poodle award goes to Officer Rodgers of the Dallas Police Department who was called to rescue a dog trapped on the interstate. By the time he got to the shelter, he had bought her treats, named her Laurel, and fallen in love. He applied for adoption. The Lizard Brain award goes to Denise Norton whose Seattle neighbor sued her for over a half million dollars for stress he received because of her barking…

See the Beautiful Friendship Between a Dog and an Owl

Contrary to the much-quoted line from Ghostbusters, dogs and cats living together — even being good buddies — isn’t that unusual. In my experience, as long as the dog learns the simple truth that the cat is in charge, everything is cool. But after all, anyone who shares a house with a cat has to learn that lesson.

A dog pairing up with an owl, on the other hand, is completely new to me. However, German photographer Tanja Brandt has a lovely gallery of pictures on her website showing the bond between her Shepherd, Ingo, and a tiny owl named Poldi (short for Napoleon).

I would love to know more of how the two came to be such buddies, because the pictures are lovely and the two look intimate and trusting. The text on the page doesn't give much history, even after you run it through Google Translate. The majority of it turns out to be quotes from writers such as Mark Twain and little aphorisms about friendship.

What we do know is that Poldi hatched a few days after his siblings, and Brandt took him in about a year ago. Since then, Ingo has taken on a very protective role toward the little owlet, who nevertheless strives to live up to his name. “They respect each other, and they can read each other,” she told EMGN.com. Brandt also keeps several other birds of prey, such as a Harris Hawk, who she also photographs either alone or with Ingo. None of them quite has the bond that's developed between the dog and the little owl, however. That relationship has caught the rest of the world's eye; the two were even painted by an artist from Brazil.

Go check out the rest of the site, and take your time looking over Brandt's pictures. They're worth it.

Dog Saved After Being Shut in a Doghouse and Left on the Street

Warning: This story is not for the squeamish. It’s one of the more disgusting and heartbreaking things that you’re likely to read today. My insides are writhing just writing about it.

Apparently someone in Los Angeles wanted to get rid of a dog. Instead of handing him off to a friend, dropping him off at a shelter, or even just letting him roam the streets where he might at least be able to find some food and water and fend for himself, they deliberately made sure that he would be miserable for a long time and probably die in misery. They did that by putting him in a crude dog house, nailing it shut, and abandoning it on the street.

The doghouse that Walter was found in.

The dog house sat on the street for at least three days before a police officer found it and alerted the Ghetto Rescue FFoundation.

"He was just cowering in the back," founder Alison Featherstone told ABC News. "His head was down. He was pushed so far into the wall. It was almost like he was trying to run, but there was nowhere else he could go. He just looked like a defeated dog."

Walter huddled in the back when he was first found.

The GRFF has named the dog Walter Worthy Higgins. He appears to be about three years old and a Shepherd-Chow mix. Walter has obviously undergone a lot of trauma, beyond being locked in a box for three days. There were bite marks and scars on his body, and his leg was swelling from an infection. Despite everything he's been through, Featherstone describes him as a sweet and affectionate dog. "He let our volunteer pet him … coax him (out)," she told NBC News. "He absolutely is a sweet dog."

Currently, Walter is receiving medical treatment for his injuries. "If anyone attempts to claim him as their dog, they will have a lot if explaining to do, and we all know no one will claim him," GRFF wrote in a Facebook post. "Our volunteer saw an extremely sad, terrified and clearly abused dog."

Best of luck to the GRFF, and to Walter, whose life can only get better from here on.
