It's been a really hot summer, you wake up one morning and it's just too hot.. you decide to take your beloved pet to the lake to cool off because you're a great dog owner. Never in a million years would you think that one day of fun in the lake would be their last.
Warning These will be difficult stories to read, but we are sharing them in hopes of spreading awareness of toxic blue-green algae, and maybe save the lives of other pups and their unsuspecting owners.
Toxic blue-green algae have been showing up in lakes across the US, and have already taken some of the beloved furbabies out there.

Everyone's favorite cat, Tardar Sauce, who sadly passed away earlier this year at the young age of 7, had a unique and permanent "grumpy" expression, which was caused by an underbite and feline dwarfism.
This Shiba Inu, named Chester, is the dog version of the famous Grumpy Cat, and after you see the following photos -- you'll think so too!
Every once in awhile, we enjoy new and brilliant comics by The oatmeal. Recently, he had come up with this new illustrated guide for dogs and we can't stop laughing. We can definitely say every dog who reads this guide, is fully prepared to walk their human being.
Picture this: you're walking down the aisle in an airplane and when you find your seat, there's a turkey sitting next to it. Or a pig. Or a monkey. It sounds like a comedy routine, but it isn't. In the past few years, there has been an unprecedented rise in people having 'emotional support animals', particularly when traveling on airplanes. While any step towards improving mental health is applauded, there have been many incidents involving emotional support animals on airplanes that really don't belong there. We can't blame these untrained animals for acting the way animals act, but we can question the laws that allow them on board. With new regulations from the US Department of Transport, things are about to change. We discuss these changes below, and whether they are for the better or the worse.
Shame on this dogs previous owner for trying to get the vets to put him down -- just because he was overweight! Truly disgusting.
Thankfully, when the previous owner brought the golden retriever, named Kai, to the vet, the vet immediately contacted the Misfits of Alberta Animal Rescue, which helped put Pam Heggie together with Kai. Their goal was to help Kai lose that dangerous weight and find him a home where Kai would be given the TLC he so clearly deserves.
Heggie, his new foster mother, has told Good Morning America that she didn't know much about Kai and his past, but knew he needed help. The vet told Heggie that Kai was the most overweight animal she has ever seen, and that "anything you do is gonna help that dog."
Kai first weighed a whopping 172 pounds before Heggie stepped in and helped him lose more than half of his body weight!
