Pets in the News

We're always eager to make our pets the best they can be, whether it's the best trained or the most attractive. It gives us a sense of pride to show off the result of our hard work and love. But what about submitting your dog as the ugliest?

Every year, hundreds of dogs and their hopeful owners try out to win the title of the World's Ugliest Dog. For three consecutive years, (2003-2005) one dog has been the undefeated champion- Sam; a pedigreed Chinese crested hairless.

I don't think there'll ever be another Sam. Some people would think that's a good thing."

Sam has been crowned the ugliest because of his many unattractive features. He made the judges recoil when they first saw him. He has wrinkled, withered, and hanging skin, moles and blackheads, milky white eyes, a lack of fur, few teeth (which are large and crooked), and a lump on his back to top it all off. Despite Sam's horror film appearance, he was lovingly adopted by his owner, Susie.

The love between Sam and Susie caused many people to adopt animals that were initially considered to be ‘un-adoptable.' The title of 'The World's Ugliest Dog' may seem harsh, but Sam has proven that it doesn't make a pet any less loveable. Sadly, Sam passed away mid-November of 2005. He leaves behind an amazing legacy. Will there be a dog for 2006 that can live up to the ‘World's Ugliest Dog' title?

Who says cats can't be heroic? On Jan. 2, according to a CBS report, Rosheisen, a fifty-year-old man from Columbus, fell out of his weelchair and was unable to call for help. He has a medical-alert necklace, but wasn't wearing it at the time. Rosheisen has osteoporosis and ministrokes that makes him lose his balance.

The police recieved a phone call from his apartment with no one responding on the phone. 10 minutes later, the police came to Rosheisen's apartment. Somehow, Tommy, Rosheisen's cat, had managed to press the speaker button, as well as the pre-set emergency button on the phone which was lying on the floor.

Rosheisen had tried to train Tommy to dial the emergency button, but had never expected this would happen. Rosheisen confesses, "Tommy is my hero."
