I was busy, busy, busy and didn’t have a chance to write in yesterday and oh how I regret it. I missed out on some exciting news, luckily Matthew was dutifully watching the news ticker and reported in on this one. Apparently, two thousand people in Japan were conned into buying sheep that were passing as poodles. Metro reported that, “entire flocks of lambs were shipped over from the UK and Australia to Japan by an internet company and marketed as the latest ‘must have’ accessory.” It gets even better, “the scam was only spotted after a leading Japanese actress said her ‘poodle’ didn’t bark and refused to eat dog food.” Question, what’s going to happen to all these sheep?

You may have seen my previous posts, where people were trying to pass off pandas and hamsters as French bulldogs, I never imagined the poodle would be next. An obvious mistake though.

Headlines like this are simply to die for! Small dogs, cats can be vulnerable to hawks. I wish I had the time in my schedule to do a real study on this one, because I am fairly certain that hawks can abscond with small dogs, and that soon this will become an epidemic. One day soon, small dogs may go the way of all the bees. The article suggests, “tiny dogs should probably always have some adult supervision while outside or at least be outside with children or other humans.” I’d say that’s fairly sound advice.

There is another report of a cat giving birth to a puppy! Ananova reports, ” Zhang says ‘that he has had the cat for more than two years, and she has given birth before but never to a dog. I always let her go as she pleases, to date other cats or play outside overnight,’ he said.” Well Zhang, maybe if you didn’t let her roam the streets like some loose woman you wouldn’t have this problem in the first place. I am pretty sure what she actually gave birth to is a rabbit. What do you think?

Well, dear Smalldogarific readers, it is with that I must leave you for a while. I am headed out for a bit and will only be available for sporadic postings (if any at all) for the next month or so. I hope you can suffice by thumbing through previous posts. Everything in moderation.

I’ll drink to that:
