On Surreal Lobster Advocacy

Animal Person

My self-appointed job in this blog is to think critically about how our human lives intersect with those of sentient nonhumans, in action and thought. Yesterday I received an e-mail alert from the Animal Rights Foundation of Florida (ARFF) regarding " a coin operated game that uses live lobsters at the Royal Palm Ale House in Royal Palm Beach. In this game, the object is to pluck live lobsters out of the water with a joystick-controlled crane."

Of course, the fact of the matter is that you provide the food in your household, or one of the other humans does. Problem-solving skills are as good for your dog as they are for you, and it’s always a delight to see your canine companion beam with pride when they have “won” their game.

Virgina Creates Wildlife Crime Watch Program

Critter News

Wildlife Crime Watch" is a new program implemented by the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries. This program is a proactive effort to develop a partnership between citizens and the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries.

I was particularly interested in the list of program sponsors.

And it limits you in that you can't just go anywhere to watch a football game if you plan to eat anything. This means that between mealtimes I will not consume animal products, use products tested on animals, attend a rodeo or polo match, go to Seaworld, wear leather, silk or wool, or drop any toxic substances into the eyes of rabbits who are clamped down (or even not clamped down, which is far more humane and acceptable).

Why No Fuss About Michael Vick?

Critter News

I know plenty of people still detest Vick for what he did, but if there are protesters at his games or outside the Eagles’ training facility, I haven’t heard about them. And in his cameo appearances in the two games since NFL commissioner Roger Goodell lifted his suspension, Vick hasn’t done anything to cause a commotion, either. It’s now clear that the odds of Vick starting a game for the Eagles are roughly equivalent to those of coach Andy Reid being named Mr. Universe.

But perhaps their human passed away, or maybe they fell on hard times and just couldn’t afford pet care any longer. Sure, there are some shelter pets who sadly have never felt love, or the affection of a human before. One thing they all have in common is the dangerous waiting game.

On Winning Free Vegan Producst. and Twilight

Evidently I'm a bit late to the game. The good ones have chosen not to "feed" on humans, but the bad ones haven't. The good ones are morally superior to the bad ones because they don't eat humans.

It’s the kind of place that helps you get past the human notion that we’re outside of nature—that there’s this divine, glorious thing called nature, and then there’s us, you know, way above it all and in charge. I had developed the arrogant attitude that my existential plight was unique among humans. Somehow men have convinced themselves that that is a worthy activity, and they even have the gall to call it sport, as if it’s a fair game played on equal footing.

On Conditional Love

Animal Person

Nicole at Alec's Story writes: One of my pet peeves, so to speak, is the concept of “unconditional love” as attributed to dogs by humans. It is a popular way of romanticizing dogs and while I am loath to be the Grinch who stole unconditional love, there are reasons why I think this “compliment” is over- and misused in the context of human-dog relations. When off leash and permitted to do anything, Charles wants to play racing games.

Weird Cat Behaviors (And What They Mean)

The fact that cats will do this over and over without ever catching their prey suggests that either their hunting instinct is so strong as to overpower their sense of futility, or they eventually learn that it’s a game and just enjoy the practice.

Dog Collars

Archaeology has demonstrated that humans were crafting collars for their animals at least 7000 years ago and the possibility that this is a conservative estimate is large. Training collars should always be used with an observant human present to prevent accidental harm.

Hare could run a very profitable shell game. No one in the room–neither dog nor human–can tell which cup hides the biscuit. Understanding a pointed finger may seem easy, but consider this: while humans and canines can do it naturally, no other known species in the animal kingdom can. Hare and others are trying to figure out how the intimate coexistence of humans and dogs has shaped the animal’s remarkable abilities. “Humans are unique.

Post a picture on Susan Wilson’s Facebook page and explanation of how your dog (or turtle, or human, etc!) She goes to the door, rejects the notion of going out, turns toward her dinner; goes back to the door, because clearly this human is not listening. Sasha, adopted at approximately nine months old, has taken roughly thirteen years to trust humans enough to be stroked while she’s standing on the floor. Today we have a great guest post from author Susan Wilson.

Animal Ethics

Niman’s suggestion that the findings do not apply to smaller farms, the United Nations and the University of Chicago reports demonstrate the inefficiency of beef “production” because a cow must be fed to convert grass or grain calories into protein before a human can consume even “humane” or grass-fed beef. There is little that is less polluting and less harmful to the planet than hunting wild game responsibly.

Keeping Dogs Safe during Holiday “Run Away” Time

Stay with her and try to distract her by playing a game or practicing obedience skills. The company of other dogs and the attention of caring humans can help distract him when you aren’t there. The coming holiday week – with its fireworks, firecrackers and other loud noises — can be terrifying to dogs. Some run away, trying to escape the sound; in fact, the Fourth of July week is peak time for lost dog reports.
