Faithful Dog Follows Athletes For 430 Miles

Arthur, the stray dog, and one of the athletes who made sure he found a home.

We're sure this is a story to warm your hearts this Thanksgiving, and make you grateful for all the faithful dogs you've known. In between chatting with Uncle Harry and nibbling on pre-dinner snacks, take a moment to read this tale of four extreme athletes and the stray dog that wouldn't get left behind.

And as you sit down to a huge dinner and then continue to sit for the rest of the day...keep this clearly in mind: These athletes were in the middle of a 430 mile "adventure race" in the Amazon (are we ready to go yet?), when one noticed a stray dog. So he tossed the hungry-looking pooch one of the canned meatballs he was eating...and, well, the rest will make your holiday.

We wish all of our blogging friends a Happy and Safe Thanksgiving. We are grateful for each of you!

Watch This Golden Retriever Do His Own Thing During Obedience Competition

If this retriever's rampage doesn't make you guffaw, and more importantly, put you in the mood for some holiday food indulgences of your own, well, we're dubbing you an early Scrooge.  And don't we all know some human relatives who will join our Thanksgiving and Christmas tables only to bring to mind this spontaneous pooch? Just sayin'...

Do You Feed Your Pets Organic?

For that matter, do your humans choose organic products for themselves? In full disclosure, Parental Unit is somewhat of an "aging hippie"—heck, she even worked at a food co-op in college where she could buy her 100% whole wheat flour and nuts in bulk. so she's a "health food nut" from way back. And today, she still chooses organic as often as possible, given a somewhat limited budget. But even she was surprised to learn some of the views about organic foods and the U.S. Department of Agriculture's organic foods label, kindly reproduced in the infographic below by the team effort of Castor & Pollux and BlogPaws. The information was gleaned from polling 350 bloggers and Facebook aficionados.

Let us know whether you favor organic food for yourselves and/or for your pets and why. We'd love to know!
