These Animals Will Teach You How To Be a Good Parent

6463210 R3L8T8D 880 animal parents 20 650x691 These Animals Will Teach You How To Be a Good Parent

It’s amazing, if you think about it, that dogs get along with children as well as they do. Creatures large and small teach, delight, and offer a special kind of companionship. Parental love knows no boundaries — this simple truth is equally valid for both humans and for our little brothers. Animals have the same emotions and feelings — tenderness, anxiety, desire to care for their kids and protect them.

Puppies with Guns Calendar 2015

1199 Puppies with Guns Calendar 2015
Initially the project started when I was working in Atlanta. About four years ago, a roommate of mine had a Yorkie and we thought it would be funny to take some photos of this really cute dog with a few handguns. Once my friends saw the photos they started asking me to take pictures of their dogs with other firearms. I moved back to Vermont, where I’m from, and it kept going on like this, and the series has been slowly growing. People see the photos and keep asking if I could take pictures of their puppies. As the series goes on, I’d like to start matching the dogs to firearms that match their personality or heritage. People really seem to like it; most people that I talk to think that it is hilarious. There have been a few people that have negative things to say, but with anything there are going to be people that don’t like it. The haters are the best, the reactions I get from completely irrational people are the most amusing part of the project. Photos from Kickstarter for Puppies with Guns calendar.

South African Academy Trains Anti-Poaching Dogs

“Venom and Killer. These are members of a furry breed of anti-poaching operatives, dogs that can detect a whiff of hidden rhino horn in a suspect’s vehicle or follow the spoor of armed poachers in South Africa’s besieged wildlife parks. Dogs are a small part of an increasingly desperate struggle to curb poaching in Africa, where tens of thousands of elephants have been slaughtered in recent years to meet a surging appetite for ivory in Asia, primarily China. In South Africa, poachers have killed more than 1,000 rhinos this year, surpassing the 2013 record. Countries and conservationists are trying more robust patrols and surveillance, community programs and other tactics against criminal gangs that sometimes benefit from official corruption. As the conflict rages, elite dogs and handlers are drilling at an anti-poaching academy northwest of Johannesburg. The course prepares canine units to find firearms or contraband, track suspects in the undergrowth and abseil in harnesses from helicopters in pursuit of poachers. Dogs and handlers learn to trust each other and fine tune a relationship balancing control and aggression”. – Christopher Torchia via The Associated Press.

Seal Pup Season in England

1377 Seal Pup Season in England
A Grey Seal pup and it’s mother lay in the mud at the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust’s Donna Nook nature reserve on November 24, 2014 in Grimsby, England. Seal pup numbers have increased on last year with over 800 pups born at the reserve so far. Large bull seals are the first to arrive at the reserve in late October or early November where they will wait for females. The Cow’s arrive later and are herded into harems by the bulls, where they give birth to a single pup which is covered in white fur. The seals return to the North Sea in January before returning to the same area to give birth the following year. The Donna Nook reserve is the UK’s premier destination to see Grey Seals and thousands of visitors from across the country come to see the wildlife spectacle every year.

And now steeplechase enthusiasts can add another event to the annuls of great sporting occasions, namely the Stuttgart rabbit show jumping.
