Yes, dogs are our companions Ė but the ones we own may also may be selfish. Research says that companion pooches are most likely selfish dogs.
Surely youíve seen this before. You go to a friendís house and all your friendís dog wants to do is play with the toys he brings you. When you stop throwing the ball or toy to the dog, he finds someone else to play with and acts as if you didnít exist. Thatís a selfish dog.
Or in another scenario, you always give a certain dog a treat when you see her. On days you donít have a treat, the dog ignores you completely. Thatís a selfish dog.
Certainly there are reports where a dog sees a need to save a life and jumps in without any hesitation.
For example, thereís the case of the blind Labrador retriever named Norman that heard the cries of a drowning girl about a half mile away on the beach.
The struggle. Itís real. Itís not just humans who have to deal with Resting Bitch Face (an involuntary relaxed facial expression thatís interpreted by others as anger, contempt or annoyance). We found 13 dogs who have to deal with Resting Bitch FaceÖ but are still able to make it look adorable!
Youíve heard that when someone gets stung by a jellyfish, you pee on the wound. But what do you do when it happens to your dog?
For those of us with pets that enjoy the great outdoors, we know that natural perils exist. From nosy cats and bee stings to playful pooches that get the wrong end of a skunk (or porcupine); stuff happens.
One has to wonder what you do when the more 'exotic' injury occurs like a snake bite or worseÖ youíre walking along a beach when Rover steps on a jellyfish!
I can tell you from googling sites for human stings that any interaction with these gelatinous blobs hurts. Seriously hurts. So youíre going to need to jump in with quick and decisive assistance ASAP in order to minimize the pain and actually prevent the injury from spreading.
Right off the mark, understand that this type of injury isnít akin to a bee sting that will diminish over time. A jellyfish sting releases thousands of extremely small barbs that hook into your skin and release venom. Get the picture? The venom typically causes a painful red rash but can also result in illness so take it seriously.
