Get your shoes. Grab a leash. It’s time for another walk through a week of our favorite Twitter and Facebook postings. Today we take a second stroll by a portly pal, a quote about snacking, a spotty command, and a photo that we have mixed feelings about. Like last week’s walk, we end on some Friday Fun. Wunderbar, the German shepherd would say if he could talk.
Article of the Week: A Dachshund Diet
Obie the dachshund weighs over seventy pounds. His previous owners were elderly and loved him with food, and eventually had to give him up. His new owner and he are on a mission to get him into proper wiener-dog shape. They’re calling the mission, “Biggest Loser, Doxie Edition.” Several online sites have posted about Obie, such as BuzzFeed, ABC News, and The Huffington Post, and you can watch a video of him on MSN’s TODAY. They would appreciate cheers and woofs on Facebook or support through donations.
Quote of the Week
“I believe that I was a dog in a past life. That’s the only thing that would explain why I like to snack on Purina Dog Chow.” -Dean Koontz
Command of the Week
Spot: Use this command to teach your dog to lick up any spilled food.
Animal Sound of the Week
How about several animal sounds? Click this sentence for a fantastic website of them.
Photo of the Week
Making our job easier or putting us out of work? We love this photo either way.
If you’re at work, you might want to turn down your speakers before you play this game (puppy barks and kisses can be loud). The objective is to look at a picture of a lost dog and then spot the dog among others. Seems easy enough, but the better you do, the more dogs will be added to the screen to obscure your pup. Click the image or here to be walked to the game page.
And another fine stroll ends. If you’re in the mood to keep walking, you can review other past articles and quotes on our Facebook and Twitter profiles. Let us know of any interesting animal-related articles that you want us to share with followers, and we’ll see what we can do. Woof!
