I Bet You Didn’t Think Groundhog Day Was This!

Groundhog DayFebruary 2nd is traditionally Groundhog Day in the United States and Canada. It’s one of those holidays that you’d never really notice if it hadn’t been for a 1993 movie featuring Bill Murray and Andie MacDowell with the same name. They put the furry little rodent on the map, but it was a holiday steeped with tradition and even religious meaning! For those of you who don’t know what Groundhog Day is, it is the day that a groundhog comes out of his burrow and looks for his shadow.  If it is cloudy, then winter is almost over.  If it is sunny and he sees his shadow, then there will be 6 more weeks of winter.  Here are five bits of trivia for you about Groundhog Day. Feel free to pass this info along to your friends and wow them with your knowledge of this little-known holiday. Read more…

5 Ways You May Be Killing Your Pet – And How To Prevent It!

Five Of The Strangest Presidential Pets

Strange Presidential PetsIt seems that every President of the United States has a dog.  When they choose a presidential pooch, it makes the headlines.  Questions come up like, “Is it an American breed?“, “Did he choose a mutt or a purebred dog?” and most recently with Barack Obama’s choice “Will it cause problems for his children with allergies?“.  However, not all presidents like to choose a dog as the “Official Pet of the White House”.  Sure, some will have cats, but these presidents went beyond the norm and picked some really off-the-wall animal companions.  Here’s a list of five of them.
