Totally, illegally cute...

Lately, I've been noticing the Petsmart commercial with the weiner dog. The cute-o-meter is so high on this one, the screen on my television set bursted open. So play or download at your own risk.

Bee dogs

Image018In a more lighter note from yesterday's morbid post regarding cats and diesel, Bee Dogs is a site dedicated to all dogs dressed in bee costumes. Normally, I fucking hate bees, but seeing a doggy dressed in a bee costume is just too illegally cute.

Who can look at a bee pug and not be delighted?

Inventors turn cats into diesel

I guess with the rising cost of gas prices, an inventor in Germany found a way to make diesel gas from cat cadavers.

Drying room for dogs?

Walt just sent me this link infrared dryroom for dogs from the FCI Seoul International Dog Show. Pretty good idea, I guess, since it's suppose to dry the dog faster using infrared radiation. It's suppose to reduce the risk of rashes.

I dunno...if I were a dog, I think I'll be frighten to go inside the little box. We have 2 labs here in the house that will have a fit in there.

I've seen pictures of Oolong, the bunny, who can balance pancakes and various items on it's head. I've never seen a pooch do a balancing act like this with the new iPod Nano. How cute!

Tired...again...

We got two more bettas last Thursday. We went to the Bruce St. fishstore with the intention of picking up some Bio Spira. For the past few days, we've spend a lot of time breaking down the six 5-gallon tanks and cleaning everything out. The blue green algae problem is getting out of control. I've been battling it for the past several weeks. No matter how much water changes and gravel vacs I do, it keeps coming back in a matter of days. Sometimes it's worse than others and it varies from tank to tank. My tap water doesn't have any phosphates and since I hand feed my bettas, I don't think it's leftover food either.

We've organized and relocated all the tanks. I now have 9 bettas. There is one in a temporary 2 gallon fish bowl, which I'm currently trying to decide what I want to do with him. I didn't anticipate getting him, but when we were in the store, he kept jumping up, trying to get my attention, so naturally, I got him.

We spend a good number of hours for the last 3 days redoing the tanks. I was cleaning the gravel and such, and Walt was rigging the airline tubing for each tank. I am glad that it's all done, and I will try to keep a close eye to try to keep the blue green algae from coming back.
