Dog paddling with dolphins clip!

Another lovely example of different types of animals getting along, even loving each others company. It seems humanity could learn a lot from observing the way they get along!

No Franken-fish please!

Two parts salmon, one part eel. A genetically engineered salmon like this may soon be indistinguishable from normal salmon at the grocery store. Are you okay with that?

Take a stand today and call for the labeling of genetically engineered foods!

It's clear that the FDA is intent on expanding the number -- and types -- of genetically engineered foods available in stores. But without labels, we can't make informed consumer choices, and now it's more important than ever that we have that ability.

We have the right to know what's in our food. There has been no long-term testing of genetically engineered foods. Consumers should be given the choice of whether they're okay with that or not.

Sign this petition to demand that genetically engineered foods be labelled so that we may make up our own minds about what we eat.

Help stop cruelty by Kentucky Fried!

Pit Bull's Don't Cry Song

Lovely song about the gorgeous nature of pit bulls. (All dogs have descended from wolves, so in all breeds there are a few that are a risk, but we need to stop using Pitbulls, German Shepherds, Bull Terriers, Rottweilers and Dobermans as scapegoats! It is people who use them to fight that are the real dangers! These savage humans are the vicious animals! Any breed of dog, which is raised with love and training, (unless they have a psychological problem) are gentle and loving pets. Pitbulls have been chosen by the inhumane for fighting because this breed is muscular,; but most pitbulls are completely beautiful in nature and only fight because they know what will happen to them if they don't! Dogs, including pitbulls, used in the dogfighting scene are regularly beaten violently and kept in disgusting conditions, but the ones who lose are often killed in the most barbaric ways, right there on the spot! We only need to look at the horrors perpetrated by Michael Vick on his poor (dead and violently abused) dogs to see the example what happens to these animals used for dog fighting!

The pitbulls that are just too sweet to fight are used as bait dogs, their legs broken, their teeth ground down, to be used for fighting practice for other dogs so fearful of death that they are willing to fight to stay alive. Reminds me of the ancient times where slaves were used to fight. Most were not trained fighters but they knew that if they didn't fight they would be killed. Fear was the only motivation, for those ancient men, and the tragic dogs trapped in the total barbarism of the dogfighting scene by humans that have no claim to genuine humanity.

Amazing miniature world - Sir David Attenborough's Life in the Undergrowth clip

Check out this clip and never see snails or insects in the same way ever again!

"If we and the rest of the backboned animals were to disappear overnight, the rest of the world would get on pretty well. But if they were to disappear, the land's ecosystems would collapse. The soil would lose its fertility. Many of the plants would no longer be pollinated. Lots of animals, amphibians, reptiles, birds, mammals would have nothing to eat. And our fields and pastures would be covered with dung and carrion. These small creatures are within a few inches of our feet, wherever we go on land – but often, they're disregarded. We would do very well to remember them." - David Attenborough discussing the precious nature of insects. They are vital to survival, so next time you reach for the spray can, consider that most bugs are much better for your, and our planet's, health, than the pesticide you are using on something just because it is a 'creepy crawly'!
