This poster is available at Rover99.com – God said, I need somebody strong enough to pull sleds and find bombs yet gentle enough to love babies and lead the blind. Somebody who will spend all day on a couch with a resting head and supportive eyes to lift the spirits of a broken heart. So God made a dog.
Deflategate is no longer a problem only for officials at Super Bowl XLIX. Or, for that matter the ref in Puppy Bowl XI.
As reported by Kitty McGee, the SPCA’s football team, The Adoptables, is apparently under investigation for playing with deflated footballs. The evidence is laid bare –- using the scientific testing method of a prodding finger –- and the suspects are not talking, especially Dutch the quarterback, who was downright Marshawn Lynch-esque in his refusal to answer reporters’ questions.
But the most mischievous offender was Hootie the cat, who uses stealthy methods to pin the blame on a teammate.
While the New England Patriots’ debate continues, there’s no doubting the effect on the footballs in Westchester: They’re perfect for playing the snow!

An adorable avalanche dog in training from Park City Mountain Resort in Park City, Utah. Geez… how cute is he?
J.J. Fuds is recalling select lots of its frozen raw poultry pet food Chicken Tender Chunks because it has the potential to be contaminated with listeria monocytogenes. The product was distributed regionally in five states — Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Indiana, and Illinois — to wholesale and retail customers.
The recall affects five-pound bags of J. J. Fuds Premium Natural Blends, Chicken Tender Chunks with:
- Product UPC Number: 654592-345935
- Manufacture/Lot Code Date: 5/5/14
Thus far, the company has received no reports of human illness as a result of the product. The recall is due to a routine sampling program by the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, which resulted in a positive test for listeria monocytogenes.
According to the company, listeria monocytogenes can "cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea, listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women. Animals' ill with listeria will display symptoms similar to the ones listed above for humans. People who have concerns about whether their pet has listeria should contact their veterinarian."
Pet owners who have Chicken Tender Chunks affected by the recall should return it to retailer for a refund and proper disposal. For more information, visit J. J. Fuds call 888-435-5873.
