Diet Pill for Dogs
California Spay/Neuter Bill
Undercover Robotic Lizard
Cat Survives 3-Week Pacific Ocean Crossing
LAURA: The most muscular dog you’ve ever seen, a Painting Pig-Casso, and a solution for chunky dogs. All true today on Zootoo News.
BETH: Because we can reference Doggy Style, and still stay rated G.
BETH: The FDA has approved a prescription diet pill for dogs called Slentrol that helps suppress a dog’s appetite and block the absorption of fatty foods. The drug is highly recommended for any dog that’s ever complained about having a huge ass.
BETH: Campaigners in Austria are fighting to give human status to Hiasl, a 26 year old chimpanzee. The activists say they have a solid case because the chimp can recognize himself in the mirror, play hide and seek, and he breaks into fits of giggles when tickled.
Unfortunately, so does Elmo.
LAURA: In California, a bill that would require most dogs and cats to be spayed or neutered has been postponed, despite the lobbying efforts of Bob Barker. When asked for comment, Bob says if he has to he will take the spay and neuter matter into his own hands with the new MiracleBlade knife set [for a retail price of $39.95]!
LAURA: Scientists in New Zealand have created an underwater robotic lizard to record the breeding patterns of rare prehistoric lizardoids. So far, the study has found that scientists will go to extreme lengths to see some really kinky porn.
BETH: No, this dog does not have schwartzeneger’s genes, nor has she spent a single day at the gym. Wendy is a whippet with a rare gene defect that gives her “double muscle.”
She enjoys long walks, eating organic dog food, or anything else she desires. Because what Wendy says, goes.
Despite her stature, Wendy’s owner says “she is a really sweet dog. Sometimes she even lets me leave the house.”
BETH: Pamela Escamilla accidentally packed her cat in a shipping container and sent it over the Pacific Ocean. When she opened the container 18 days later, Escamillo was relieved to find the cat alive.
She was even more relieved to find her son Bobby, packed in with the linens.
LAURA: Ten year old Smithfield, a pet pig diagnosed with nasal cancer has a unique way of supporting his second round of chemotherapy — by painting! He is selling a calendar featuring his original art.
Let’s take a look.
