Rats are better than Rod

The Chicago Sun Times wrote about someone noticing that the Rat Poison Warning Sign was taken down from they alley where IL Gov. Rod Blagojevich lives. A Sun Times photog shot a great picture the other day... I think the IL Gov gives rats a bad name.

Animal Christmas Video

Here is a fun little Christmas song from those happy Brits across the water. They have a website dedicated to hints and tips about little things that can make a difference.
This video asks people to "Do One Thing for Nature this Christmas."

Those folks at Midwest Homes For Pets are at it again!

Those small animal friendly folks over at Midwest Homes just came out with Guinea Habitat.
Not to be confused with this Guinea Nation
(Repulic of Guinea, thanks CIA Factbook)

This one! (Guinea Habitat Plus is pictured!)

Not sure about that picture, trying to find a better one...
I appreciate the canvas bottom on this Guinea Habitat, I think the pigs will too!
Looks great for a kids first pet.
Check it out, in time for the holidays!

You think you're fair? Your dog might not think the same.

Researchers have found that dogs see inequality in certain situations...
This AP article has the poop...
along with amusing undated is a blurb from the article.

    The dogs sat side-by-side with an experimenter in front of them. In front of the experimenter was a divided food bowl with pieces of sausage on one side and brown bread on the other.
    The dogs were asked to shake hands and each could see what reward the other received.
    When one dog got a reward and the other didn't, the unrewarded animal stopped playing.
    When both got a reward all was well.
    One thing that did surprise the researchers was that — unlike primates — the dogs didn't seem to care whether the reward was sausage or bread.

Thanks Pet Blog tipper Bridget!

Critter Nation is up for sale...

So the Critter Nation is up for sale on and a couple of other sites. Looks like there is a single and double stack model...
Here is the single:
And the double unit:
Looks similar to the Ferret Nation but the spacing is different on the cage itself, and some of the inside spacing as far as ramps and whatnot have been adjusted. From what I'm told rat lovers from around the country helped Midwest Home For Pets in designing this. I'm intrigued to see the reviews on it.

Which breed is right for you?

MSNBC had this really cool interactive photo gallery that talked about which dog breed is best suited for your lifestyle. For those of you that didn't see it you can click here or on the picture below.
