NYC Woman’s Dog Survives Being Shot in the Mouth by Ex-Boyfriend Who Beat Her …
Article from ABC News:

A year-old pit bull named Honey survived being shot point blank in the mouth by her owner’s ex-boyfriend during an argument at her Brooklyn apartment in New York City, according to Honey’s owner and a criminal court complaint.

Honey’s owner, Asha Stringfield, 24, told ABC News today that she has a restraining order against her 47-year-old ex-boyfriend, Kenneth White, who she said attacked her after he got annoyed about the food she had at her house and jealous about another male friend of hers. The restraining order was confirmed by court documents obtained by ABC News.

White “repeatedly punched” Stringfield in her head and face, grabbed her by the throat, pulled her off the bed by her hair and pointed a gun to her face, asking her to give him “two reasons not to shoot” her, according to a criminal court complaint filed in Brooklyn Criminal Court.

Meet the Dog Investigators Say Helped Catch Ex-Subway Spokesman Jared Fogle

Meet the Dog Investigators Say Helped Catch Ex-Subway Spokesman Jared Fogle
Article from ABC News:

One of the key players to cracking the case against former Subway spokesman Jared Fogle has a keen sense of smell and four legs.

His name is Bear and he’s a dog trained to sniff out electronic media devices, including a hidden flash drive that Assistant U.S. Attorney Steven Debrota said was vital to the investigation. The 2-year-old Labrador retriever helped find evidence at Fogle’s home in Zionsville, Indiana, when authorities raided the house in early July.

Caught on tape: Woman kicked off flight for not putting dog in carrier

Caught on tape: Woman kicked off flight for not putting dog in carrier
Article from CBS News:

Woman arguing with a police officer about putting her dog in a dog carrier.

CBS Chicago

CHICAGO — A passenger on a United Express flight from Salt Lake City to Chicago captured the dramatic moments a woman in her 80s refused to put her dog in a carrier and was removed from the plane by police, reports CBS Chicago.

A United spokesman told CBS Chicago the dog had snapped at the flight crew and prompted the pilot to request the woman place the dog in a carrier. When she refused, the flight returned to the gate, and police officers boarded the plane to remove the woman.

According to rules posted on the United website, any pet traveling in the cabin must be carried in a kennel that can fit under the seat, and remain there at all times.

The passenger who recorded the video uploaded it to YouTube. The video has now been viewed more than a million times. The person who made the video added captions stating the dog had been growling and snapping at the crew, and that the woma…………………continues on CBS News

Your dog may be “socially eavesdropping” on you
Article from CBS News:

Dogs may play catch, obey commands and even share the occasional dessert with their owners, but can they understand simple interactions between people?

A new study says yip-yip-yes.

In a recent experiment, dogs tended to avoid people who had snubbed the animals’ owners, the researchers found. This suggests that dogs can read human social situations, an ability known as “social eavesdropping.” [Like Dog, Like Owner: What Breeds Say About Personality]

However, not everyone is on board with the study’s conclusions.

“So far, it is not clear what dogs understand about human interactions,” said Marie Nitzschner, a postdoctoral researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Germany, who was not involved in the study. “More research is needed.”

Social eavesdropping

As many dog owners know, the animals eagerly watch people all the time, said the study’s senior author, Kazuo Fujita, a professor of psychology and comparative cognition at Kyoto University in Japan.

But it’s not clear whether CBS News

DOG JUDGMENT: Show me your dog and I will rate it between 1 and 10

DOG JUDGMENT: Show me your dog and I will rate it between 1 and 10
Article from SB Nation:

2/10, would not pet – Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

Dogs are great! Some dogs, however, are better than others. Let SB Nation’s preeminent dog expert rate your dog in the comments below.

I love dogs. From the Westminster Dog Show to a sled dog nursery in the wilderness of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula to the strays of Baghdad, I have befriended thousands of dogs, almost all of whom were more likable than the average human. I have lived with dogs in my home for most of my life — large and small, mutt and purebred. Dogs are the best!

I would like to rate your dog on a 10-point scale. In the comments below, please leave the following:

  1. Your dog’s name;
  2. A photo of your dog OR a brief description that includes breed and size;
  3. Your dog’s strengths (“Rarely barks; expressive and velvety ears, etc.”);
  4. Your dog’s weaknesses (“Seeks out the mud puddles, really bad farts, is kind of racist, etc.”).

To give you a better understanding of what pain or reward DOG JUDGMENT may bring you, here are some of the dogs I have lived with during my life and the scores I would give them:

  • Stella (Rottweiler mix): 9.5
  • Gizmo (corgi): 8.5
  • Bill (a st…………………continues on SB Nation

So if your pet is starting to get a bit of wide load, you can figure out how much more activity it should get each day.
