Host of ABC's Wildlife Docs, Rachel Reenstra guests. She'll tell us about her unscripted TV show following the antics and rescues at Busch Gardens. Maybe we'll even find out what she's getting her pets for the holiday.
Dogs were the first animals people domesticated. Sadly, they also suffer from many of the same difficult-to-treat psychiatric and neurological diseases we do. Researchers from the Darwin's Dog Project put together a series of short surveys about everything from diet to behavior to personality. Any dog can participate and it's free. Once an owner has filled out the survey, they send you a kit to collect a small saliva sample from your dog for DNA analysis and they share any information they find!
Dog Returned After SEVEN Years
Once again you can thank a microchip for reuniting a lost pet with its owner, only in this case the dog had been missing for 7 years. Little mixed breed Mishka was only 3 when she got out of her yard. She was found late last month and turned in to a shelter in Ohio where the owner used to live. She now lives in Tennessee. The shelter says it was difficult to find the dog's microchip because it is normally located between the shoulder blades, but over the years Mishka's chip had migrated to her side.
