It is generally thought that dogs are descended from domesticated Grey Wolves many moons ago. So it stands to reason that those of us who love our dogs also tend to take a fancy to wolves, albeit from a distance.
But not always so distant! This new A Wolf Called Romeo by author and photographer Nick Jans is the true story of a six-year friendship between a wild, but sociable black wolf and the community of people and dogs of Juneau, Alaska.
The author had lived in Alaska for nearly thirty years when a friendly encounter with a black wolf while walking his lab at twilight changes his and many other lives in this modern suburb on the edge of Alaskan wilderness.

Today at Super Cool Pets HQ, we are celebrating a very important day. Our staff Golden Retrievers Molly and Jessie are turning 11 years old.
The girls are decked out in their Birthday Girl Pet Scarf Bandannas, and it's party party party the whole day and into the night. Well, until about 8 or 8:30 when twilight signals the day is over for doggies.
We are ready with our Pawty-Time Blow Out Noise Makers, although really barking a lot is just as fun.
We can't wait for our Bone Shaped Carrot Cake topped with 11 multi-colored Barks-n-Bones Shaped Cake Decorations to make a wish on for lots more toys and treats and trips to the beach.

Here at Super Cool Pets we were surprised to hear the other day that pet birds such as parakeets, cockatiels, parrots are considered "exotic pets".
We understand that category for reptiles such as snakes and lizards, along with other normally wild animals such as rabbits, ferrets, mice, but birds and even fish?
So how about choosing an owl for a companion?
In The Owl Who Liked Sitting on Caesar: Living with a Tawny Owl British military historian Martin Windrow tells the tale of his 15 year live-in relationship with a tawny owl he named "Mumble" who became his closest companion. Fascinating!

We all are expected to put on a happy face here in America, but the reality is that life is fraught with suffering. Suffering and fear thereof can lead to depression, anxiety and mental illness.
If you live with an animal and are an observant sort, you likely know that non-humans suffer mentally as well as physically. Laurel Braitman noticed this in her anxiety-prone Bernese Mountain Dog. Extensive subsequent research brought her to the conclusion that animals can lose their minds just like we humans.
That's the premise of her Animal Madness: How Anxious Dogs, Compulsive Parrots, and Elephants in Recovery Help Us Understand Ourselves -- that nonhuman animals can suffer from mental illnesses that mirror those that humans endure. And they can recover, just like we can.
Fascinating stuff at Animal Madness: How Anxious Dogs, Compulsive Parrots, and Elephants in Recovery Help Us Understand Ourselves.
