Watch HSUS CEO Wayne Pacelle And Oprah!

Hey everybody—Wayne Pacelle chats with Oprah on "Super Soul Sunday!"

Since we're on the mailing list of the Humane Society of the United States , we received this notice the other day, letting us know that HSUS CEO, Wayne Pacelle, would be chatting with Oprah as part of today's "Super Soul Sunday".

We're big fans of both the HSUS and it's CEO, Mr. Pacelle, and we're also fans of Oprah—although we've never tuned in to her television station, OWN, ...until now. We've DVR'd this program and are heartily recommending it to all of our readers.

As you might remember, Parental Unit had the pleasure of talking with Mr. Pacelle during the book tour for his first best selling book, The Bond: Our Kinship With Animals, Our Call to Defend Them.
Now Mr. Pacelle has written a second book, The Humane Economy: How Innovators and  Enlightened Consumers Are Transforming the Lives of Animals which he discuses with Oprah during their hour-long conversation. The conversation airs today at 11:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m., EST,  and we bet it will be repeated many times, so if you don't read this in time, please keep a lookout on OWN!

Let us know if you see it and what you think—we're excited to hear your opinions!

BlogPaws Wordless Wednesday Pet Blogger Hop: Black Cat Appreciation Day!

The good folks at BlogPaws are calling our attention to National Black Cat Appreciation Day which is...today! There's even a nifty infographic that lists the top reasons why black cats rock—and we know one big reason is that if you wear a lot of black clothes like Parental Unit, their fur doesn't show.

Unfortunately, there are still superstitions surrounding black cats that you can help debunk, today and every day. We're sure you'll receive many "meows" of thanks!

Meanwhile, back at the Ohio ranch...

Bella and I are a bit more worried about this black-masked fella paying a return visit than any black kitty!

Now let's head over to the BlogPaws Wordless Wednesday Pet Blogger Hop and see what black cat myths have been debunked!

Stray Dogs Around The World

                         Yes, we were both once strays!

We think these mini stories about stray dogs from across the globe, taken together, paint an interesting picture of their lives—even when those dogs have become beloved family members.

According to this recent article in The NewYork Times that provides the backdrop for these individual stories, there are about one billion dogs on the planet, and only 250 million of those are pets. The rest (a mere 750 million canines), are village dogs, street dogs, strays. And studying these stray dogs has revealed  a treasure of information about the true nature of canines. Fascinating reading for a hot, rainy weekend, we say!
