The Akita Inu is named Yume, and was a gift from Japan’s Akita prefectural administration to Russian President Vladimir Putin last summer. The Karakachan (Bulgarian Shepherd) named Buffy was a gift from Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borissov.


Yume, whose name was chosen by Putin and means “dream” in Japanese, was given to the president as a three-month-old puppy. Buffy’s name was suggested by a five-year-old boy named Dima Sokolov.

Social network for pets launched in UK


собака питомец животное ласка любовь хозяин




A social network for pets has launched in the UK. It allows you to register an account as yourself, the pet owner, and then add all the pets in your possession.


A dog singing under beethoven music:


http://youtu.be/FHioVviA7OE






According to the conception of the MySocialPetwork social network, registered users post their profiles in photos and videos exclusively of pets. As expected, cats and dogs are dominating on the site. They are followed by guinea pigs, rabbits and parrots. There are exotic animals such as hedgehogs, snakes and chameleons. Each photo has a small narration. Like in other social networks, there is a possibility of assessing the image by pressing the heart button. The administration of the resource is consistently monitoring the main page. It selects the “hero of the day.”


The appearance of the site is not a surprise, says chairman of the Internet Party” Kirill Fyodorov.


“There is a social subtext according to which there are many lonely people across the world. With the assistance of such a website people get an opportunity communicate on the basis of their love to animals. This is a quite interesting project. There are many people who have pets, and they can unite so as to solve the largest problem of mankind, the problem of loneliness,” Kirill Fyodorov said.


Photos and videos of animals on the Internet have always been popular. They gather millions of viewers. Some four-legged animals become real stars. For one, the Internet users across the world watched the fate of bear Knut at the Berlin zoo through Facebook. Sometime ago, cross-eyed kitty Spangles “exploded” the Internet. Pomeranian dog Boo that looks like a teddy bear has over 1.5 million admirers, more than its owner.


 Statistics show that every tenth user of the social networks who has his own pets down load the Internet with their photos almost once a week. Most likely, it is high time to introduce separate accounts for pets, says Internet-expert Sergei Musienko.


“At present, it’s impossible to compete with Facebook, consequently, people develop niche projects. Most likely, this resource will be advantages for the owners of pets. It’s unclear whether it will be successful. This depends of the niche, marketing and the financing of the social network,” Sergei Musienko said.


The charitable organizations were the first to pay attention to social networks for pets. They are planning to use the site to find owners for stray dogs and cats.

MY DOG IS MY DOCTOR 



Dartagnan: I had a recent experience with a dog which licked a small wound on my big toe and cured it totally so I didn't go to visit a doctor. 


Dog Saliva Has Healing Properties


Have you ever heard someone say, “let the dog lick it, it will heal faster”?  Sounds gross doesn’t it?  Well, research findings suggest that it’s true, a dogs saliva actually does have healing properties that can help a wound.  Just the simple mechanical action of a dogs tongue can be helpful in dealing with a wound, as the saliva of a dogs tongue acts to loosen any debris that may be on the surface of the wound.  The dirt or other debris will become attached to the moisture of the saliva, causing a cleansing of the wounded area.


Researchers at the University of Florida at Gainesville have discovered a protein called Nerve Growth Factor (NGF) in saliva.  Wounds that were treated with NGF actually healed twice as fast as untreated wounds, indicating that if a dog does lick a humans wound, it could in fact lead to a faster recovery.  In addition, Dr. Nigel Benjamin, a clinical pharmacologist with St. Bartholomew’s Hospital and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry, has conducted research indicating that when saliva comes into contact with skin, a natural component of saliva called nitrite, breaks down into nitric oxide, a chemical compound that is very effective in protecting cuts and scratches from bacterial infections.


The scientific research that has been conducted has mainly focused on the helpful compounds and antibiotics that are found in dogs saliva.  Menno Oudhoff of the University of Amsterdam has found simple proteins called histatins in saliva, which are well known for their ability to ward off infections.  In fact, some histatins also prompt cells from the skin’s surface to close over a wound more quickly.  Oudhoff further noted, “The first thing that needs to happen for wound healing is to activate the migration of epithelial cells.”

The Danger of Asphyxiation and Tennis Balls


Tennis balls can be dangerous for dogs, and Carlson Animal Hospital explains why in recent X-rays.


One of their patients was brought in after swallowing a tennis ball at home. The tennis ball was lodged in the rear of the dog’s throat.


Fortunately for the dog, the ball was not blocking his entire airway, so he was able to breathe.

Other dogs have not been so lucky, and Carlson Animal Hospital is sharing this information in an effort to save canine lives.


The hospital issued a reminder with the photos: “Please avoid using tennis balls as the consistency (size and softness) can readily lead to swallowing and often suffocation.”


The X-ray image shows a circular mass in the throat area; this is the tennis ball as it was stuck in the dog, and the actual ball removed is shown.

Thanks, Dartagnan. Nana is truly something special. You know, Border Collies are consideredby many

to be the smartest dog in the world. Nana certainly lends credence to that theory. My dog Lady was also

a border collie with a distant cross to a rough coat collie. It gave her a beautful colour. I didn't

teach her tricks per say, only obedience training. But she was constantly coming up with her own ideas

to show me how brilliant she was. She amazed me all the time and kept me in stiches, laughing at the

things she came up with that I would never have thought of. She was also a classy girl, very much a

"Lady". I miss her tremendously. I keep her picture beside the autographed picture of Maria, befitting

the respect and awe I have for these two, each a glowing pillar of their species.

South African park ranger saves little girl from lion by throwing a coffee cup

South African park ranger saves little girl from lion by throwing a coffee cup




A South African park ranger saved a little girl from a lion attack by shouting and throwing a coffee cup at the animal, a newspaper reported on Friday.






"I realized I would have been in a lot of trouble if anything happened to the little girl, so decided that it would rather have to be me," Beeld newspaper quoted ranger Franco Kubile, aged 32, as saying about jumping in front of the large cat.


Kubile was accompanying a group of seven tourists on a safari drive at the Madikwe reserve in the north of the country.


They got out of the vehicle at a clearing, so some people could go to the toilet under a nearby tree. The ranger stayed at the vehicle preparing coffee.


 "That was when I heard people yelling and saw a mother and her toddler daughter running away from a lioness," the ranger recalled.


Still holding the coffee cups, the ranger jumped in front of the lioness, shouted "Stop, Stop" and threw the coffee cups at her. She eventually backed away.


"There's a 50/50 chance that a lion will run away when you take it on. However, as soon as you start running it sees you as prey," Kubile said, noting that the young girl was "certainly prey."


The ranger told Beeld that the lioness likely had her cubs in the thicket where the guests went to relieve themselves and was protecting her young.
