Las Vegas has it all as far as dogs go. 25 dog
parks where dogs can be off the lead which per capita is third best in the US. SinCity
is not so good for dog walking because of the extreme heat though. Vegas is home to a
dog-themed radio program, “a show about things all dog” called The Las Vegas Hot Diggity Dog Show, hosted
by Stacy “Doxie Diva”. It is also a Dachshund rescue group with the slogan “Saving
the World One Wiener at a Time.” According to Dog Jaunt, a blog for people who want to travel with their
small dogs, many of the casinos allow dogs as guests.

A protective pooch is being credited with alerting a South Carolina family that their babysitter
was abusing their 7-month-old son. Benjamin
and Hope Jordan, of Charleston, first grew suspicious of Khan after their dog
began acting aggressively towards her.
"About five months into her being our baby sitter, we started to notice
that our dog was very protective of our son when she would come in the door.He was
very aggressive towards her and a few times we actually had to physically
restrain him from going for her."
Suspecting something was up, the couple placed an iPhone under a couch to
record Khan's day with their son, Finn, while they were at work. Jordan
said the device caught Kahn cursing and hitting the child.On the recording slapping noises and crying
is heard, both distress crying and pain crying.
Kahn, the babysitter was arrested and later confessed.

Whilst walking Ozzy in the forest this afternoon, we came across this dog:
I went up to the owner and showed off my knowledge of dogs and complemented her on her nice looking Basenji.
"C'est un lévrier Podemco", she replied.
"Ah bon! Beau chien!" was my embarrassed reply.
A Podemco hound is also known as an Ibizan Hound. This is what they look like:
originates in the island of Eivissa, Catalan for Ibiza and has been traditionally
used in the Catalan-speaking areas of Spain
to hunt rabbits and other small game. The Ibizan Hound is a fast dog that can
hunt on all types of terrain, working by scent, sound and sight. Hunters run
these dogs in mostly female packs, with perhaps a male or two, as the female is
considered the better hunter!
The breed is
considered by most experts one of the most ancient dog breeds. It is believed it
evolved from the tesem, the ancient
Egyptian hunting dog. Representations of this dog on the walls of ancient tombs
show a striking similarity to the modern Ibizan Hound. These dogs would have
been brought to the island
of Eivissa by the Phoenicians,
who founded settlements there as early as the 8th century BC.
