Boo, the world’s cutest dog! Featured on GMA this morning!

The owner of Boo started up a Facebook page for Boo a few years ago.  Now, Boo’s page now has 1,619,103 “Likes”.  And he is a cutie, I do have to agree.  He is a Pomeranian with an odd haircut for a Pom.

When looking for Boo on Facebook, there are some impersonators… but his wasn’t hard to find.  Click here to see the correct Boo on Facebook.  Here are Boo’s favorites from Facebook:

• Favourite foods: chicken, cheese, flowers, grass, dirt …
• Favourite games: running outside, following around big bro, squeaky toys!
• Favourite pastime: wearing shirts
• Favourite colour: pink

Here is his feature on Good Morning America… which is adorable…

Harbor, the dog with the world’s longest ears

Harbor, a black and tan coonhound, has earned recognition from Guinness World Records as the living dog with the world’s longest ears.

The 8-year-old pooch has a left ear that measures 12.25 inches and a right ear that measures 13.5 inches, according to the 2012 edition of the record book, which will be released Sept. 15.

Harbor’s enormous ears have earned him plenty of fans, according to his owner Jennifer Wert, of Boulder, Colo.

But they can also be a burden. When the purebred was a pup, he used to trip over them and tumble down the stairs, a Guinness press release notes.

Today, passersby often take pictures of Harbor’s droopy ears or give them a friendly tug when he’s out for a walk.

“Most days I forget how oddly long his ears are,” said Wert. “He’s a phenomenon in the world and he creates smiles wherever we go.”

Odd as it might sound, Harbor’s huge ears don’t necessarily improve his hearing — instead they boost his sense of smell. When a black and tan coonhound moves, its swinging ears push scents towards its nostrils, helping it detect and follow prey.

With his inclusion in the 2012 Guinness Book of World Records, Harbor joins a long list of dogs with very long ears.

A basset hound named Mr. Jeffries set a world record in 2002 with ears measuring about 11.5 inches, according to the BBC.

In 2003, a German basset hound named Jack took the title with ears reportedly measuring just over 13 inches.

The following year, Tigger, a bloodhound from Illinois, set a world record that still stands today, with ears measuring 13.5 inches on the left and 13.75 inches on the right — 1.25 and .25 inches longer than Harbor’s droopy ears, respectively.

Tigger, who won many dog show titles and awards, passed away in 2009, according to the Guinness website.

My trip whale watching in the San Juan Islands, WA

Just arrived back home from a wonderful trip to Seattle WA. Wonderful in many ways, but one was because it RAINED! I live in New Mexico and have not seen any real measurable amount of rain since December 2010. While in Seattle, I took a day trip to the San Juan Islands near Anacortes WA to go whale watching out of Friday Harbor. I saw the Orca’s playing, porpoises cresting, Sea Lions laying around, Harbor Seals curiously watching us watch them, Bald Eagles, amongst many other beautiful creatures.

So, just wanted to share footage I took and a few of my pictures taken while out on the Strait de Juan de Fuca, and the bays in the islands.  I was truly in natures Nirvana.


In closing, my heart was saddened as I passed a horrible Shell Oil Refinery to and from Anacortes.  I do not wish to post political on this site, so you may view more on my other blog.  Our Dependence on Oil. Man versus Nature.
