Sochi & Winter Olympics

Sochi & Winter Olympics

The Winter Olympic Games set to unfold in the Russian beach resort town of Sochi was plagued by controversy right from the start. When organizers struck down a request by NGO Pride House to set up shop in Sochi, Russia’s policies on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights came under close scrutiny. Then there are widespread allegations over corruption in the provisions of services and facilities. Critics accused Russian president Vladimir Putin of cronyism in awarding contracts and ...

Thanks NRA!

Thanks NRA!

Thanks NRA! Gun Nut Kills Two Brothers He Mistakenly Believed Were On His Property A “responsible gun owning” West Virginia man with a large stockpile of weapons in his house apparently decided that it was time to use some of them. So when two men showed up at an outbuilding near his house in the town of Barboursville, he decided to blast them away, with no warning whatsoever. No “Hey, you are trespassing, get off my property!” No calling the police to let them handle it, no ... Full Story

Your New Puppy and Parvo

Your New Puppy and Parvo

  Danielle Huval, DVM Emergency Clinician Supervisor   Having a new puppy is such a fun time for a family. Showing them off to friends and family, teaching them to walk on a leash, and socializing with other dogs are important steps to forming a great lifelong relationship. First visits to the veterinarian are packed full of information, which can be overwhelming. At an early age, puppies are vaccinated against many viruses, with Parvovirus, more commonly referred to as Parvo, ... Full Story

GunFail: The week before Christmas

GunFail: The week before Christmas

Accidentally shot by an 'otherwise responsible gun owner.' GunFAIL XLIX By David Waldman Five of the 38 guns discovered by TSA agents at airports across the country last week. Another typical week. Unless you're one of the people who got shot, of course. Statistics-wise, this compilation records five cops as accidentally discharging their weapons, three neat freaks discharging guns they couldn't wait to clean, three generous patriots who shared Freedom Ingots with their neighbors ...

Dogs and Moose Do Not Play Well Together

Dogs and Moose Do Not Play Well Together

    DENVER - In the wake of several people being injured by moose this year, Colorado Parks and Wildlife is reminding outdoor enthusiasts that moose can be aggressive when dogs and humans get too close. Since early spring, wildlife officers have responded to three human/moose conflicts, including two recent incidents in Grand Lake. In all three instances, dogs - both on and off-leash - reportedly spooked the moose before it charged and seriously injured the dog's ... Full Story

Gun Fail XLVII

Gun Fail XLVII

  'I can do anything I want on my property!' he screamed, and fired three more rounds. GunFAIL XLVIII   One of the lightest weeks in child shootings in recent memory. Congratulations, America! I found just three children accidentally shot this week, ages 3, 4, and 8. Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be any way of just shutting the flow off completely, but it's nice to finally see less than a half dozen or so. Also coming in on the low side were home invasion shootings, ... Full Story

Puppies as Presents

Puppies as Presents

    Crystal Connor, DVM Emergency Veterinarian As the holidays are fast approaching, there are many who will consider adopting or purchasing a puppy as a present. While I believe being a pet owner can result in many rewards, bringing a dog into the family is a decision that should be made with careful consideration. After all, this is not an object to be unwrapped, admired for a short time, and then tossed to the side as another gift may be. It is a living being that ... Full Story
