Golden Retriever REALLY Wants Goldfish!

Filed under: Silly!PetsFishDogGolden Retriever

He likes fishes cuz they're so DELICIOUS!!!

This golden retriever REALLY wants to "meet" this goldfish but the fishy keeps moving!

So, using his doggie instincts, he chases after him and he's going to catch up somehow.

Unfortunately, there's a giant glass tank in the way!

Two Goldfish Survive 134 Days without Food

Two Goldfish Survive 134 Days without Food

WOW!

A crazzyass pair of goldfish lasted an incredible 134 days in earthquake-hit New Zealand without any pet food or electricity to power their tank filter.

The two fish, named Shaggy and Daphne survived in their 26-gallon tank in the reception area of Quantum Chartered Accountants in Christchurch, where the earthquake struck.

When the people that work in the office were Daphne and Shaggy live earlier this month, they were shocked to find the two fish alive and well.

Was it the strong will and fighting sprit that kept them alive?? Nope — it was poop.

Some experts say bacteria in the tank may have kept the water clean enough to sustain life.

The fish have no memory od the events.

It May Be Illegal To Sell Pets In San Francisco

Fresh off an unsuccessful attempt to make circumcision illegal, San Francisco has turned elsewhere for its next attempted ban: Goldfish.

The Animal Control and Welfare Commission would like to ban the sale of pets in the city, even goldfish.

The proposed ban seems destined to fail a vote of the Board of Supervisors (just like the ACWC's recommendation to mix birth control with birdseed to reduce the pigeon population).

We'd love to see an end to puppy mills, but is this the answer?

Is Your Pet Right Or Left Handed?

Filed under: Science!FishDogCat

right or left pawed

To the surprise of pet owners scientists have discovered that cats, dogs, parrots and even fish are right or left-handed.

Psychologists played with 42 pet cats for several weeks as part of the research, according to a report in the New Scientist.

The researchers from Queens University said:

"Male and female cats differ in their behavioural patterns, for example hunting styles and parental care, and it is possible that these place different demands on motor functioning."

Apparently, female cats are more likely to be "right-handed" while toms favour their left paw.

The same preferences occur in dogs.

Parrots have a dominant foot to pick up food and other objects with while toads are mostly right-handed.

When fish dodge a predator they tend to veer to one side more consistently to the other.

Goldfish Races Cruel Canceled

Filed under: PETAAnimal RightsFishAnimal Cruelty

Ew.

Tuesday was "Scare The Crap Outa A Fish" Night at the Harmon Tap Room.

Following protests from the PETA, the Tacoma, Washington based bar has canceled its weekly goldfish races.

Hoping to draw in customers, several restaurants and bars in the U.S. are holding weekly 'goldfish races' — events during which patrons armed with straws or water guns squirt goldfish down the length of plastic gutters.

Making matters worse are reports that drunken patrons have impaled some fish with cocktail straws and have swallowed others alive.
