PetScoop -- Dogs Have A Sense of Fairness

mj.jpg

When you are distributing presents to your pets Christmas morning, keep in mind that dogs have a sense of fairness. According to a recent study:

The dogs sat side-by-side with an experimenter in front of them. In front of the experimenter was a divided food bowl with pieces of sausage on one side and brown bread on the other.

The dogs were asked to shake hands and each could see what reward the other received.

When one dog got a reward and the other didn't, the unrewarded animal stopped playing.

When both got a reward all was well.

News, but not really news. We have kind of noticed this already. Read article.

Super Cool Pet Calendars 2009

dog boxed.jpg

We receive a Golden Retriever wall calendar and a desktop daily box calendar every year, among our favorite gifts. Every morning we check out the new photo on the desk calendar. We have wall calendars in several rooms with beautiful photos that always give us a lift.

What we're saying is...pet calendars are a great holiday gift for the pet household.

Most of us love all pets, but many are partial to a particular canine or feline breed. There is something for everyone!

2009 Wall Calendars are available in over 70 different breeds and styles of dogs and cats, with many puppy and kitten calendars as well. And maybe you know someone who loves wild birds or parrots. The 2009 Boxed Calendars are filled with 365 cute photos.

The 2009 Engagement Calendars are full-color, week-by-week hardcover calendars that look great and open flat so you can easily record meetings, appointments, and reminders in hard copy.
