Caught on Camera: African Wild Dogs

From our friends at Mongabay: African wild dogs are neither wolves nor dogs, even though they belong to the Canidae family. In fact, they have their own genus. Their biggest populations are in the open plains and sparse woodland of Botswana, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Zambia, Tanzania, and Mozambique.

Special thanks to the Peter Apps/Botswana Predator Conservation for sharing this footage with us. Every episode, Mongabay will bring you a new animal caught on Candid Animal Cam, so subscribe and hit the bell icon to make sure you never miss a camera trap video again!

And shout out to our writer and biologist Romi Castagnino, who hosted, produced and shot this video!

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!

Tuesday Top Ten: Photos From AKC Meet The Breeds 2020

The AKC Meet the Breeds event was held this past weekend in New York City. Here are my top ten picks of the pictures provided to the press by the AKC. In a change this year (to accommodate the big crowds), the event was held separately from the Westminster Show.

Many of the booths are elaborately decorated, and a prize is given to the best booth from each breed group (Hounds,
Terriers, etc)

Let’s Hear It For K-9 Lalo!

You gotta love a story with a happy ending. WBTW, Channel 13 in Myrtle Beach, recently brought us the story of Lalo, a Bloodhound who was instrumental in reuniting a family when the K-9 found a 9-year old who had wandered off to a friend’s house without telling anyone.

Lalo’s partner, Deputy Timothy Davidson, says the dog gets quite the workout as they have similar situations crop up almost weekly.

Great job Lalo and Deputy Davidson! Thank you both for your service.

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
