This is one for the ages: a three-year-old Great Dane was rushed to a Portland emergency animal hospital recently after suddenly coming down ill. Was it something it ate? Ah, yes, indeed. Try socks, 43 and 1/2 (that’s right, a half) of them!
We all know that hundreds of firefighters, police officers and ambulance crews helped out on 9/11 to rescue those trapped in the World Trade Center, but rarely do we hear about the heroic rescue dogs of that fateful day. With the help of FEMA, photographer Charlotte Dumas tracked down 15 dogs who worked to find survivors in the rubble of the twin towers, and fittingly named her photo series Retrieved.
Some breeds of dog are unfairly stereotyped, and none more so that the pit bull.

Yes, according to Live Science ‘cat lovers scored higher than dog lovers on measures such as introversion, open-mindedness and a term used far too loosely in society, sensitivity’. Sensitivity!
Fact: dogs are walking, barking, balls of fur that embody everlasting happiness and unconditional love. Another fact: these same creatures turn into metaphorical pits of gloom and sorrow – with matching puppy dog eyes – as they endure the torturous ritual called, ‘bath time’.
‘For the Love of Dogs’ is a series by photographer Chris Sembrot, wherein he captures various dog owners in the act of kissing – and to some extent Frenching – their canine buddies.
