  25. <p>Spending a week playing with your new puppy and getting paid for it is enough to make us think of changing jobs.</p>
  26. <p>Heads up to <a href="http://www.mkclinton.com/">Barking from the Bayou</a> for this great story.</p>
  27. <p>BrewDog, a brewery headquartered in Scotland, announced that it would be instituting &quot;Puppy Parental Leave&quot; across their company giving&#0160; a week off with pay to any worker adopting a puppy.&#0160;And yes, they’re referring to this benefit as “Paw-Ternity Leave.”</p>
  28. <p>They also give generous leaves to people with human babies.</p>
  29. <p>The brewery was founded by two men, James and Martin, and one dog, Bracken, in 2007 and now employs over 1000 people worldwide.</p>
  30. <p style="padding-left: 30px;">One of our aims as a business is to be the best company to work for. Ever. Puppy Parental Leave is just one small step towards making that a reality, as we launched it as a direct response to staff members who were taking holiday days to settle in new dogs, or worrying about their new best friend at home when they were at work. The two things we care most about in the world are beer and people. We also really, really like dogs.</p>
  31. <p>Not surprisingly, BrewDog has seen an increase in job applications through the company’s website. They also allow workers to bring their dogs to work.</p>
  32. <p>DogTap Columbus, the brewer’s first U.S. location, has recently opened in Columbus, Ohio, part of a $30,000 investment.</p>
  33. <p>Puppies and beer, a much better idea than sliced bread.</p></div>

  57. <p>The note writer asks that Rhino&#39;s new family make sure he&#39;s safe.</p>
  58. <p style="padding-left: 30px;">I love and miss him.</p>
  59. <p style="padding-left: 30px;">He is a very amazing puppy/ striped dream/ likes sleeping under the blankets/ loves people/ being able to run around.</p>
  60. <p style="padding-left: 30px;">His cheeks make a lot of slobber.</p>
  61. <p style="padding-left: 30px;">Rhino doesn&#39;t like water or snow/ isn&#39;t too fond of cats.</p>
  62. <p style="padding-left: 30px;">Take him on at least 2 or 3 runs a day.</p>
  63. <p>The child asks the new owners to keep his name the same and add their last name.</p>
  64. <p>Rhino is available for adoption by families with children eight years and older. Photocopies of his owner&#39;s manual will go with him. Rhino has many families interested in adopting him.</p>
  65. <p>The child has a brilliant career ahead in advertising and marketing.</p>

  114. <p>A single tusk can weigh more than 250 pounds and one pound of ivory can bring as much as&#0160;$1,500&#0160;on the black market.</p>
  115. <p>At the current rate of killing, there is a danger&#0160;that the species will be soon wiped out in all but the most protected places.</p>
  116. <p>To get on the trail of poachers quickly, dogs and handlers are being trained to drop from rapid-response helicopters at&#0160;the Paramount Group’s Anti-Poaching and K9 Academy in South Africa.</p>

  119. <p>Arrow was specially selected for this task as a puppy because of his temperament. First he was trained to descend from a helicopter by rope‚ strapped to his handler, Henry Holsthyzen‚ and finally he was trained to skydive.</p>
  120. <p>Since Arrow was a puppy he and Holsthyzen have eaten‚ slept‚ and worked together in order to develop the bond needed to carry out the dangerous anti-poaching responsibilities together.</p>
  121. <p>Arrow is, according to his handler, a natural skydiver and an adrenaline junkie. He is doing his job to protect African elephants from very bad guys.</p>

  172. <p>When the firefighters heard what it was for, the fully equipped rescue unit and the fire marshal responded.</p>
  173. <p>With a lot of patience, coconut oil, ear tucking and the strength of firefighter Zach Smith, Blaze was released from his tire-trap. Except for some minor neck swelling, Blaze suffered no ill effects.</p>
  174. <p>If you’re imagining a very noisy experience, you would be wrong. Blaze remained calm and collected through the whole ordeal, not making a sound.</p>
  175. <p>And what did Blaze learn from the experience? He’s a puppy, so probably nothing.</p></div>
