 Actress Demi Moore visited the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta, GA with her nephews June 18th, 2009 and got up-close and personal with a Beluga whale!

She helped feed one and kissed another.  And remarked that the fish don’t smell bad; but their food stinks, LOL!

Demi is immersed in helping to end hunger in America, having directed a video for Kelloggs Cares in their Fighting to End Hunger campaign.  You can see the video HERE.

I wonder if the Beluga got pics to show his friends that he really kissed her!

Just When You Think You’ve Seen Everything….

Here’s a washing machine – for cats and dogs. The Dog-O-Matic, a carwash-style device to keep pets smelling fresh, was invented by Frenchman, Romain Jarry.
Now the 31-year-old, who insists the machine is not cruel, hopes to export it around the world after dog and cat owners flocked to use it in his home town of St Max. He said: “It doesn’t take long to wash the dog – usually a few minutes. “The longest part is the drying. The dogs don’t seem to get bored.”Owners place their pets inside the machines, much as they would with dirty laundry.
The animals are soaked with water thanks to a special hydro-massage system that pumps out jets of water at 32 degrees Celsius.
Special mild dog shampoo – similar to baby shampoo – is used to avoid stinging eyes. The drying cycle lasts about 25 minutes. It costs about $20 USD to wash a small dog, $35 USD for a medium size dog, and up to $50 USD for the largest, or dirtiest dogs. Cats can also be washed – at the small-dog price.

“The dogs don’t seem to get bored”???? Really? No kidding…they’re probably terrified and scared out of their minds if it sounds anything like the automated car washes I’ve been to!!!  You could probably charge admission if you put your cat in there! Yikes, I don’t know….I’m pretty sure none of my animals would be happy about this!

What about yours? Would you try this out on your own pets?

TOP DOG OF THE DAY!!! Meet Lucky and Sparky!

Check out these adorable Cavalier King Charles Spaniels from Northern New Jersey! They’re pictured here with a buddy, Luke; after the 3 of them along with their families participated in the annual Dogswalk Against Cancer this past Sunday, May 3, 2009!  Their team raised over $3000 for the American Cancer Society to help find a cure for animal and human cancers.  Awesome!!!!

Lucky and Sparky are both Ruby colored Cavaliers, which is the least common coloring for the breed. Luke is a Tri-colored; the other two colors are known as Blenheim and Black and Tan.

Lucky is almost 4 years old and his auntie Lynn says he’s sweet, gentle and a cuddlbug. “He’s always on your lap and is an angel except when he sees a squirrel, and then he goes wild!” .   Well, we say , “can you blame him?”. 

His brother, Sparky is a puppy mill puppy, rescued from a large puppymill where over 1000 pups were rescued last summer in West Virginia. Because of poor, or non-existent record-keeping, they aren’t sure about Sparky’s exact age, but at rescue was estimated to be between 10 months and a year old. He’s still full of energy and mischief; and prone to eating rocks (a learned behavior at the puppy mill from either being bored or being hungry; how sad!!!), so he has to be watched closely. But he’s got a great home now, filled with love and adventure and a big brother to teach him the right path to take!

Sounds like the two little guys are making a difference in this world and Sparky I’m sure knows what it means to need help, so he’s doing his part to pay it forward!

And that’s what makes the two little guys our TOP DOG OF THE DAY today! Congratulations!
