World’s Smallest Working Dog, a Yorkie, Sets Guinness World Record

Lucy world's smallest working dog a Yorkie

A mini Yorkshire terrier from New Jersey is now the holder of a very big world record: world’s smallest working dog.

Lucy, who weighs just 2 1/2 pounds, was named the world’s smallest working dog last week by Guinness World Records. In the process, she doggedly beat out the previous record holder: Momo, an eight-year-old chihuahua from Japan that works as a police search-and-rescue dog.

The tiny terrier makes her rounds each week, visiting hospitals, nursing homes, and rehabilitation centers. She also works with children with disabilities, and troubled youth.

 

Amazing Cat Tricks by Kaiser the Bengal

Amazing cat tricks by Kaiser

These truly are some very amazing cat tricks performed by Kaiser the Bengal cat. The owner uses and promotes clicker training. Honestly, this is the first cat I have seen clicker-trained, but I see clickers used frequently in my  canine agility classes (they’re not allowed on the course when competing your dog.) The basic premise is when your pet performs your given command correctly, you “click” and reward, so your dog (in this case a cat) learns “That is correct; a reward is coming.”

Kayak Fisherman Rescues Dog Swimming Off the Coast in the Gulf of Mexico | Video

Fisherman saves dog

Just so happens that a man fishing solo off of the Siesta Key Coast in the Gulf of Mexico was running a camcorder of his fishing.  I am assuming it was to hopefully film a nice catch, and since he was fishing alone, he had to mount the camera and keep it running.  Well, what he did not expect to catch was a dog… swimming alone and completely terrified.

Here is the story according to Huffington Post as well as the video taken by the fisherman:

A fisherman kayaking on the Gulf of Mexico over the weekend made one catch he’ll never forget — a dog swimming for his life off the Siesta Key coast.

What initially seemed like a bizarre rescue actually took place following a horrific tragedy, when a drunk driver fatally struck the dog’s owner in a hit-and-run accident approximately one mile from the shore, according to ABC Action News.

Authorities told the local Patch that they found Donna Chen, 53, face down on the pavement that afternoon, while her dog, Barney, was nowhere to be seen.

Police said that the suspected driver, Blake Talman, was fleeing another crash scene when his Nissan Altima spun out of control, striking Chen and Barney, as well as some landscaping, a street sign, a telephone line, and several wooden poles lining the entrance to a church, according tot he Sarasota Herald-Tribune.

Talman and his passenger were both taken to a local hospital to be treated for serious injuries.

It wasn’t until after posting the rescue video to YouTube that the kayaker connected the accident to his timely rescue.

“Our guess is that [the dog] was so freaked out and traumatized that he just wanted to get as far away from there as possible,” he wrote in the video’s description. “And when he ran out of land, he took to the water.”

The kayaker pulled the visibly distraught and injured dog to safety. He is now with the family and is expected to make a full recovery.

Talman, 22, is charged with DUI manslaughter in addition to DUI property damage and personal injury.

Here is the video recording of the rescue.  At approximately 0:26 is when you can barely see the dog’s head bobbing in the water to the right side of the video, just under the pole.
