Manatee Vs. Glass

| Filed under: Cuteness!FunnyManatee

Ha!

That's so funny!

If you pause right as he presses his nose against the glass he looks kinda like a Dr. Seuss character!

Don't worry about any injuries either, apparently some manatees just do this, like before eating or just whenever.

He's a big, blubbery cutie!

Kayakers Save Poisoned Manatee

| Filed under: Manatee

Aww yay!!

On Tuesday night, two Bonita Springs kayakers came across what they thought to be a dead manatee but it turned out — shocker of shockers — it was A LIVE MANATEE!!

The poor thing was just suffering a little Red Tide Poisoning, that's all!! And by that's all, we mean she totally could have died if the Miami Seaquarium hadn't come to the rescue!

Breve is doing well and on her way to recovery now! She should be free to go within the next couple of weeks.

Thank goodness for those kayakers! And the MS! Bless them!

WORK IT OUT!

These pooches are so cute and totally gifted. lol

Um… hello? Why haven't we seen these guys on America's Got Talent? Clearly, they are much more talented that a certain ventriloquist we all know.

Obviously this a natural gift. If they were trained they could even be better than China's conga dogs!

Is Fido In Your Will? Pet Estate Planing Is A Growing Trend

| Filed under: PetsManatee

taking care of fido

You don't have to be Leona Helmsley to want the best for your pet after you die. She'd left her dog Trouble $12 million when she passed away in 2007.

A judge cut the award to $2 million and awarded some of the money to her grandchildren, but the Maltese still lived a life of luxury until his death in December.

Today there are retirement homes for pets all across the country, and at least 45 states allow for pet trusts.

A pet trust is an agreement that specifies how an owner wants a pet to be cared for, including details on who will be responsible for the animal and how the care will be paid for.

A study from the late 1990s published found 1 percent of dogs and 1.5 percent of cats coming into 12 animal shelters had been surrendered because of owner death.

So, is it really worth it?
