A baby great white shark got caught with a fishing pole from Venice Beach pier. The locals brought it to shore, took out the hook and set it back out to sea.

Former Fighters Retrained as Certified Therapy Dogs

My F-book pal, Mae Sally, found this:
Ok, so the reporters kinda suck, but Wallace the Pit Bull totally rules and is wearing the CUTEST doggy tuxedo, and there's a clip of Hector the Pit Bull being carried on his back like a baby. You should watch it if only to see the awesomeness that is the Yori Dogs. :D
Wallace RAWKS!

Cooking With Cannabis

A pal, who's been around the kitchen a time or two, provides this advice for those stoners who'd like to try their hands at alternative modes of consumption, specifically, as an additio to recipes in which butter plays a significant toll, as in brownies and other baked goods. Sez Phil:

Save your best buds for smoking. Take the lesser grade buds, shake, stems, as much as you can muster, but an ounce (I grow my own, so it is not a matter of $) to a pound of butter. I slow simmer it in a big pot all day! Then put it in the fridge. Next morning, about 3/8" of hardened lard will be on top of the pot. I break off the lard and then put it in a double boiler. When it is melted, I strain it and pour it into ice cube trays. Then whenever you bake, use in baking recipes as called for. Usually one cube = a big tablespoon. MMMMM.... so fine!
Bon Appetit!

Dog Humor: How Many Dogs...

Via Big Dogs Have Big Hearts :

How many dogs does it take to change a light bulb?

Golden Retriever:
The sun is shining, the day is young, we've got our whole lives ahead of us, and you're inside worrying about a stupid burned out bulb?

Border Collie:
Just one. And then I'll replace any wiring that's not up to code.

You know I can't reach that dumb stupid lamp!

Cocker Spaniel:
Why change it? I can still pee on the carpet in the dark.

Make me.

German Shepherd:
I'll change it as soon as I've led these people from the dark, check to make sure I haven't missed any, and make just one more perimeter patrol to see that no one has tried to take advantage of the situation.

Oh, me, me!!!! Pleeeeeeze let me change the light bulb! Can I? Can I? Huh? Huh? Huh? Can I?

Let the Border Collie do it. You can feed me while he's busy.

Jack Russell Terrier:
I'll just pop it in while I'm bouncing off the walls and furniture.

I'll just blow in the Border Collie's ear and he'll do it. By the time he finishes rewiring the house, my nails will be dry.

Who cares? This squeaky toy isn't going anywhere.

It isn't moving. Who cares?

Australian Cattle Dog:
First, I'll put all the light bulbs in a little circle...

Old English Sheep Dog:
Light bulb? I beg you're pardon but what lightbulb?
