(PCM) A black Labrador mix named Eclipse from the Seattle area, loves the city’s dog park so much that she will often times hop on the public transit bus and ride there all by herself.

Her owner Jeff Young claims that the habit started one day when he was taking too long to finish a cigarette and Eclipse just hopped on the bus a rode to the dog park without him. Ever since then it has become Eclipse’s habit. Sometimes she is with her owner and sometimes she is not.

All of the city bus drivers know her and commuters claim that Eclipse rides the bus sitting in a seat just like a person. Her owner Young also says that Eclipse will get on the bus without him and then he will catch up with her later on at the dog park. She picks up the bus right in front of their home and then hops off at the dog park about three or four stops later.

Young also says that about once a week he will get a phone call from a local business in the area telling him that they have found his dog and he has to explain to them that she is just fine and knows what she is doing while heading to the park.

A representative for the transit company says that they enjoy having Eclipse as a rider, but definitely feel that she would be safer with her owner and a leash along for the trip.

New Jersey Seeks To Ban Pets From Getting Tattoos And Piercings


(PCM) Having solved all other problems, the state of New Jersey now wants to ban pets from being both tattooed and pierced. Somehow, we just never saw this as being such a big issue…we ask you…how many people do you know that have tattooed or pierced their pet?

Currently, three New Jersey lawmakers feel that it is a big problem and have introduced a bill that would clarify under New Jersey law that tattooing and/or piercing your pet would be considered an act of animal cruelty.

They feel that tattooing or piercing an animal is needless mutilation and those individuals need to be penalized for their actions. The lawmakers claim that the need for a bill was brought to their attention by animal rights groups and a similar bill is on its’ way to being passed through New York legislature now.

Both the New Jersey and the New York bills do take into the consideration the branding, tagging and marking that sometimes occurs with various livestock and exemptions will be made for those particular cases.

Residents in New Jersey are a bit baffled by the bill as to their knowledge there have been no publicly documented cases of animal tattoos or piercings taking place in the state. The only well documented cases were that of a Pennsylvania woman who was selling “gothic kittens” that had pierced ears and New York tattoo artist that tattooed his dog while the dog was unconscious due to another surgical procedure.

Back in March, the ASPCA said that it would condone the use of small tattoos on dogs or cats to mark them as having been spayed or neutered and the currently bill does not offer an exception for those types of tattoos.

Highlights from the Puppy Bowl IX

(PCM) Before the NFL champion team is decided, a different Super Bowl has taken place involving much furrier players, Animal Planet’s Puppy Bowl IX.

The show featured adorable puppies playing and running around on a miniature football field, a very cute kitten halftime show, hedgehog cheerleaders, hamster pilots surveying from a blimp above and Meep the bird who Tweeted throughout the show.

Only one MVP was chosen from the 63 puppies who competed. A Schnauzer/Beagle mix named Marta; she conquered dogs twice her size with her feisty attitude and athleticism to become the winner.

“Marta’s tiny, but she’s not delicate, and she is deceptively athletic, which kind of tricked the bigger dogs,” says Daniel Schachner, who served as referee.

There were some fouls committed in the game. Daisy and Peyton got called for excessive cuteness when they nuzzled the camera. Some other dogs got called for unnecessary “ruffness” and illegal napping.

Jackson Galaxy, host of Animal Planet’s series My Cat From Hell introduced the Kitten Halftime Show which featured 21 kittens playing with toys while being showered with confetti.

Next year will mark the tenth anniversary of the Puppy Bowl and I’m sure it will be just as adorable.
