This dog walks on two leg like a human! I can only jump up on my two legs when I get really excited, but this dog does it all day.
The really special thing about Faith is that she travels around the county to serve as an inspiration for those struggling to overcome adversity.
Before finding my forever home, I was left on the side of the road to fend for myself when I was just a year old. So, I thought I knew about adversity. But a dog learning to live her life happily on two legs, and sharing her spirit with struggling humans, that is inspirational.
Read about Faith's visit to Washington DC (plus video) here. See a slideshow here. Faith's people even have a website for her!

If you need another reason to quit, look no further than the furball curled up next to you. Did you know that if our person smokes, it makes us dogs more likely to develop cancer? It seems obvious, because pets are stuck breathing in all that second hand smoke. A new survey showed that a third of smokers would be motivated to quit if they knew it was harming their pets. Spread the word!

Dogs like you and me help our people a lot. But some people need a professional dog to help them. I was excited to hear that this group, Freedom Dogs, is helping out soldiers returning from war and struggling with post-traumatic-stress-disorder. I bet war is scary, but coming back to a normal life is probably hard too. I am happy some great dogs are being trained to make life easier for our veterans.

Check out this new airline--PetAirways, just for us pets! Before, flying in the cargo hold with all those suitcases seemed pretty scary, but this sounds like a huge improvement. They are partners with Best Friends Animal Society, so that makes me think good things about them already! Read about it here, or check out their youtube commercial.
Get this--you can use a stud finder to detect microchips in dogs! I bet you are skeptical, I was too. I asked my person to check to see if our stud finder could find my microchip. It worked!

The worst thing that ever happened to me was a really bad splinter in one of my pads. It wasn't so bad, but my person said it was expensive. But some dogs get cancer, and that is scary! Good news though—the FDA has just approved a new cancer treatment just for us dogs!
Why are humans always so worried about color? I only see a short spectrum of color (everything looks greenish yellow to me), but it still shouldn’t matter what color your dog is. We all have a lot of love to give!!! Don’t discriminate against black dogs…they have plenty of tail wags and sloppy kisses to share. Read more about how black dogs face tough odds in shelters.
