Here are the lyrics:

“Tiger, Tiger, boopy doopy Tiger

Are you good boy? Are you bad boy?

Boopy doopy boopy-doopy-doopy”

Kim’s (brief) puppy love

kim-kardashian-chi Kim Kardashian found a stray chihuahua puppy to keep her company while her boyfriend Reggie Bush is away during football season.  Kim found the puppy outside a nail salon, and after failing to find the owners, decided to keep the dog.  She named her Princess and accessorized with a pink toy and a bed.  It wasn’t until Kim’s mom suggested it that she brought the dog to a vet, where she got bad news.  Princess needed emergency surgery on her uterus and will need round the clock care after she recovers from surgery.  Kim realized it would be too much work for her and gave up the dog to a vet’s assistant who offered to adopt her.  “I know that I’ve only had Princess for a really short period of time, but I actually love her,” she said.  The experience with Princess inspired Kim to become a volunteer at a local shelter.

Denver-area dermatologist Leslie Capin entered her 3-year-old chihuahua Dr. Papidies in the All American Pet Brands’ Cutest Dog Competition last fall with the intent of donating the money to charity.  She  launched an online campaign on Facebook and Twitter which helped Dr. Papides win the cash prize of $1 million.  Capin was overtaken by emotion when she found out they won in November, “I didn’t grow up with a lot of money — I had to work for everything I had — and then here I am close to the age of 56, in the position to give away a million.”  Capin set up a trust which will donate $33,000 for the next 29 years to shelters that Capin has chosen to help.  “Even if I change my mind in 10 years, I can’t get that money,” she says.

Congratulations Dr. Papidies for winning the “Cutest Dog” title, and thanks Dr. Capin for keeping your word!

Remembering Wheely Willy

“Life is what you make of it,” was Will’s message.  Like so many other rescues, no one knows where Willy came from or what happened in his bad past.  A woman found him on the streets of LA in the early ’90s in a sealed cardboard box, hairless, emaciated and shivering.  Someone had cut his vocal cords so he could not cry, and his back legs were paralyzed from a broken back.  He was brought to a vet’s office where he lived in a cage for the next year, until rescue worker Deborah Turner heard about Willy and gave him a loving forever home.  Deborah Turner adopted Willy and fitted him with the K-9 cart.  “This might sound dramatic,” Deborah says. “But it took his world from black and white into full blown color. Because that’s where life began for him.”

Willy overcame his life’s obstacles to become an international superstar on Animal Planet, National Geographic, and the talk show circuit.  He traveled the world and carried his message of hope everywhere he went.

Willy passed away peacefully in his sleep on Dec. 22, 2009.  Read Willy’s obituary and his information about his memorial service on Jan. 19, 2010 on Willy’s official website.

Should I use anxiety meds on my puppy?

I have another question for you concerning this seperation anxiety on my 8 week old chihuahua. This crying is out of control and I feel so bad that I do not even want to come to work and leave her alone. Someone was telling me about anxiety medicine or natural anxiety medicine. Do they really work and if so is she too young to give her those drops or pills? More on Should I use anxiety meds on my puppy?
