Chihuahua Fights Off Armed Robbers, Sniff Seattle Dog Walkers, Videos

Chihuahua's the new guard dog? (YouTube)

Don’t be surprised if you see a Chihuahua behind the counter the next time you’re at the gas station or 7-Eleven. Check out Paco, the crime fighting Chihuahua!

This little guy almost thwarts an armed robbery in Altadena, CA. Two armed robbers flee the store mid-stickup after Paco lets out a torrent of barks and comes charging, forcing the masked gunmen to leave cash behind.

And it’s all caught on the store’s security camera (video below)!

Turns out Paco’s a rescue dog who spends his day roaming from shop to shop in the neighborhood. Looking for bad guys, no doubt.

“Kaa.” Like the snake in Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book. That’s the name of Woodland Park Zoo’s new reticulated python.

The zoo asked their Facebook friends to submit names for the snake — then picked five of those submissions for people to vote on. Kaa got 44% of the votes, beating Sundara, Java, Rimbo, and Pogi.

We love going to the zoo. So I’m sure we’ll be seeing Kaa soon!

Lots Of ‘Awwws’ For Ocelot Kitten At Woodland Park Zoo

Did you see the video a few months ago of the ocelot kitten born at the Woodland Park Zoo ? Very cute! Well, that little sweetie is old enough now for people in Seattle to come see her.

Her name is Evita. And the best time to visit according to the zoo is between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. inside the Tropical Rain Forest.

If you plan on bringing your camera (and of course you are — look how darn cute she is), remember the fact that it’s the Tropical Rain Forest exhibit means there’s high humidity and heat.

Guilty Dog!

Denver the Guilty Dog, YouTube Video Guilty!

Who got into the cat treats? Let's see the suspects... (foodplot/YouTube)

This video I found on YouTube is so funny. There are a lot of funny pet videos out there…but this one takes the cake!!

If you’ve spent any time with dogs, you’ll love this. I know my pug, Stewie, is always trying to get into things (sometimes quite successfully). But this dog, Denver can’t hide the guilt on his face!

Ultimate Loyalty: Japanese Dog Refuses To Leave Injured Friend Behind

Sniff Seattle Dog Walkers, Ultimate Loyalty: Japanese Dog Refuses To Leave Injured Friend Behind

Watch the video (below). It's sad, yet touching. And ultimately inspiring!

Many of the pictures and videos we’ve seen of the devastating Japan earthquake and tsunami have told the story from a human perspective.

That’s understandable. We’re people, after all. And there aren’t too many news reporters from the animal world.

For a different view of the tragedy, watch this video (below). Fortunately, some human reporters in Japan were able to capture the story of couple of the quake and tsunami’s animal victims.

Two dogs. One injured, and another who steadfastly refuses to leave his buddy’s side. Friendship and loyalty when times are rough. It speaks volumes about the strength of character of our dogs. It’s sad, yet touching. And ultimately inspiring!

If any of us ever found ourselves in a similar situation, we’d all hope to have a friend this dedicated sticking by us!

Word is the two dogs in the video were picked up after this was filmed and are in the care of a local shelter. So hopefully, their situation continues to improve.

What can you do to help Japan’s animals? The International Fund for Animal Welfare is leading that effort. You can donate to the IFAW here.
