Dogs are funny creatures, aren't they? One minute you're thinking "what would I do without you?" and the very next they are getting into the trash. Yesterday I came home to a huge mess in my kitchen! But I figured out who the culprit was immediately.
The last couple of days have been pretty emotional around here as we wrap up our St. Jude Radiothon where our focus has been squarely on kids. The below video plays on that, but goes in a slightly different direction, but is a great story nonetheless.
The title is an interesting question and according to a new study, 40-percent of people would save their dog before the stranger. That number jumps to 46-percent for women. It seems like our empathy and compassion for each other is at an all-time low in today's world.

Sometimes you just need a jumpstart to your weekend with good laugh. Videos of little kids and dogs are the best and certainly the funniest. The video featured below has been done before, but this is very well done and looks so real. Have you ever watched a dog eat peanut butter?
Have you ever wanted to get into the Guinness Book of World Records for something? Believe it or not, there are more people than you would imagine who have spent many hours trying to find a way in, and some of the things they do and have accomplished are pretty amazing...
Every Thursday, Leslie and I have Sydney Long from the Vanderburgh Humane Society in studio to discuss pet adoption, and we usually feature a dog looking for a great, loving home. The relationship between children and dogs needs little explanation and Long talks about how well the dogs do when adopted by families with children. A new study says that babies in dog-owning homes might actually be hea
