Dogs Get A New Lease On Life In 3-D

3-D Printing Technology 3-D printing is a fairly new technology that is rapidly moving toward the mainstream. Although the technique was first described in 1981, it wasn’t until early in this century that commercial printers began to be produced, but only in the last five years that prices have dropped to consumer-friendly levels, from $20,000 to less than $1,000. It’s even possible now to take a file into a place like Staples and have the model 3-D printed there, or to use cloud computing and a site like Shapeways to have the item printed and sent to you.

Jacey Birch: From Pet Lover To Animal Advocate

Since I was a tiny tyke growing up in Miami, I had a hobby of helping animals, whether it was saving a squirrel that fell out of a tree, or finding a feral cat a home off the streets, or bringing stray dogs home for my parents as presents. Even during visits to a family farm in Alabama, I proudly picked piglets out of a cotton field, rescuing them from the scorching sun while letting one of them call my grandma’s house his new home. I named him Arnold. There were many more names, many more animals, and a heart

Callie Thorne: Putting The “Rescue” In “Rescue Me”

In psychology there are two roles: that of patient and therapist. As an actress, Callie Thorne has gotten to explore both sides, as was there ever a character more in need of therapy than Sheila Keefe on the FX hit “Rescue Me?” In her current role on USA Network’s “Necessary Roughness,” Callie portrays Dr. Dani Santino, a therapist for professional athletes, helping them deal with life issues and crises.

Jane Lynch’s Glee-Filled Life With Dogs

If you have ever been to an airport, then you have probably had a flight delayed. What is one to do to pass the time, but people watch, as you never know whom you might see? My biggest airport thrill as a child was waiting for a plane and running into Jimmy “The Mouth of the South” Hart, from the WWF. Hey, for a 12 year-old boy, it was quite a thrill. So it comes as no surprise to me that the airport is the favorite place of Olivia, Jane Lynch’s (“Glee,” “Two and a Half Men”) Lhasa Apso. “Olivia

His Station and Four Aces by C.M. Coolidge, 1903. When people think of famous works of art featuring canines, “Dogs Playing Poker” tends to come to mind. What has become “cheesy” art along the lines of the Velvet Elvis was once a series of sixteen paintings by Cassius Marcellus Coolidge that were originally commissioned for an advertising campaign for cigars, two of which sold for a combined amount of nearly $600,000 several years ago. Think of that the next time you see a print of one of the paintings in someone’s “man cave.” But dogs have been the subject or

Science Catches Up To Cesar

By Jon Bastian One of Cesar’s core principals of dog psychology is that they are pack animals and the pack has a hierarchy of leaders and followers. Cesar came to this conclusion over years of working with packs of dogs and observing their behavior. However, critics of Cesar’s methods say that this theory of dog behavior is outdated and based on captive wolves. Science is catching up to Cesar, though, and a recent study done by researchers from Oxford University, Eötvös University, Budapest and the Hungarian Academy of Sciences (HAS) shows that a pack of dogs does, in fact, have

Does Your Dog Love You?

By Juliana Weiss-Roessler If you believe that your dog truly loves you, are you right? Or is this just another way that we humanize our pets? It may not come as a surprise, but research confirms what most of us know from experience: dogs do experience feelings of love and affection. Yes, dogs rely on us for food and security, but they also look to us for social comfort and bonding. A team of scientists at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, trained over a dozen dogs to be comfortable around and in an MRI scanner, and they discovered that a
