Olivia Wilde's Dog Gets More Gifts Than She Does

Filed under: Olivia WildeDog

Olivia Wilde And Dog Take On The Hollywood Hills

Poor poor girl!

Olivia Wilde recently admitted that her only boyfriend these days was her dog, Paco. Well, ever since fans have been eager to spoil her furry man-friend.

"Is it sad, that my dog is essentially the man in my life? He's a great dog, but it's funny because ever since I mentioned that he was my boyfriend, he gets way more swag than I ever have. I mean, truckloads arrive at the house for him. When he hears a car pull up, he just waits, like he knows it's for him!"

This lush lifestyle is a total 180 from Paco's humble beginnings. Olivia explains:

"I found him through Much Love Animal Rescue, and he had been found in the back of a U-Haul truck with his five other brothers and sisters, and they hadn't eaten for a week."

And how he's dating of of Hollywood's hottest celebs. Hmm… taking all her gifts, not working for it, comes from the streets — kinda reminds us of K-Fed! LOLZ!

More And More Fish Float To The Surface

Filed under: Scary!FishDanger!Crazzzzy

Mass fish death in mexico

Something fishy is up in Acapulco.

Masses of sardines, anchovies, stripped bass and mackerel surged close to shore Friday on one beach in the Mexican resort city, packed so tightly near the surface they looked like an oil slick from above.

Delighted fishermen rushed out in wooden motor boats, abandoning their rods and nets and simply scooping the fish up with buckets.

"It was so much fun. There were about 20 or 30 fishermen and there were people who came with their kids to take advantage of it,"

One fisherman said.

The fishermen attributed the strange phenomenon to the unusual currents unleashed by tsunami that followed the earthquake in Japan.

Experts couldn't be sure.

How We Furnish Our Homes Affects Tigers Homes

Siberian Tiger bed

The Siberian tiger is such a magnificent and majestic creature, but it is going extinct due to deforestation in its natural habitat. In fact, there are only 400 left in the wild!

What can WE do about it?

As a consumer we have a choice in what products we purchase and Vermont Wood Studios is raising awareness for consumers to avoid purchasing wooden furniture products from outside the United States.

They say up to 90% of the furniture you see for sale in our country is made of illegally harvested wood that is clear cut from ecologically sensitive habitats like this tiger's habitat.

Luckily, there is no need to buy outside of the U.S. because in Vermont our forests are growing at a rate that is faster than the harvest rate, increasing the forests sustainability!

Vermont Wood Studios offers styles ranging from contemporary to hand-crafted, all made with American wood.

They even offer free delivery, plant 5 trees for EVERY sale, and together with Save Tigers Now (a global campaign started by Leonardo DiCaprio) are working to double the number of wild tigers by 2022, the next Year of the Tiger.

We know where we're going furniture shopping!
