Ice cream for dogs launches

A Belgian company is producing ice cream specifically for dogs.

Three young marketing students from Edingen are confident their Dog Ice - which will be in the shape of a big bone - will be a huge success.

"We'll start with vanilla flavour but I think in the future it might also be possible to develop a special meat flavour", one of the producers, David Decroix, said.

His business partner Didier Murena said they came up with the idea when they noticed dog-owners sharing ice creams with their pets.

The ice cream will cost 3,99 euro (around $5.35).

Nothing grosses me out more than festive holiday themed sweaters but now I've seen the ultimate gross sweater. Animal themed holiday themed sweaters if that makes sense.
I suppose you all think I'm an urban snob. Well I really don't give a piss what you think anyway. I'm from Chicago. We don't do cheery festive holiday themed anything. It's so suburbia. It's so country. We'd like to distance ourselves from not only suburbia but definitely the country. We are not country anything lovers. Artisans who sell arts and crafts have stopped selling the stuff at our art fairs. We simply just don't get into this shit anymore. When I saw this on a colleague, I wanted to hurl. Yes she's from the country living in suburbia. All I could think was "how gauche. And BARF!"

And you all thought Lassie was a classic tale. There will be a film on this one day. "KUZYA COME HOME" This is amazing!

Cat crosses Siberia to find its home.

Two-year-old male cat named as Kuzya has made an unprecedented journey across the Yakutia republic in Russia's Siberia. The cat walked 2,150 kilometers in three months to find its home, Regnum news agency reports.

The cat lived with the family of the Efremovs in the small village of Olenyok. The owners took the pet to the city of Yakutsk, the capital of Yakutia, in the beginning of summer. The cat apparently did not like the new dusty and noisy place of living and escaped. The Efremovs were going to stay in the city just for a short while, but the cat did not return when they had to leave back to the village.

The cat appeared on the doorstep of the Efremovs' house in Olenyok three months later. The animal looked rather pitiful: it was skinny, shabby and even untamed. "There were traces of some animal's teeth on the cat's tail. The three-month journey rubbed away its claws too. We have noticed that the cat became highly precautious. He walks stealthily all the time and he always looks for a hiding place. The poor animal had to cross Siberian woods and hills; he had to cross rivers and lakes. It is simply unbelievable," one of
the family members said.
