  25. <p><strong>Professor Mike Daube, &#0160;public health expert in Australia</strong>, decided to test how carefully some scientific journals vetted their editorial reviewers. &#0160;He invented Dr. Olivia Doll&#0160;— also known as his Staffordshire Terrier Ollie — and made up her credentials.</p>
  26. <p><strong>Her impressive rèsumè lists her current role</strong> as “senior lecturer at the Subiaco College of Veterinary Science and past associate of the Shenton Park Institute for Canine Refuge Studies” — which is code for her earlier life in the dog refuge.</p>
  27. <p><strong>Besides sitting on the editorial boards</strong> of seven international medical journals, she also is associate editor of the Global Journal of Addiction and Rehabilitation Medicine. She has just been asked to review a research paper on the management of tumors.</p>
  28. <p><strong>Professor Daube says nobody&#0160;has caught on</strong>, in spite of Dr Doll’s listed research interests in “the benefits of abdominal massage for medium-sized canines” and “the role of domestic canines in promoting optimal mental health in ageing males.&quot;</p>
  29. <p><strong>A growing number of journals charge</strong> desperate would-be researchers up to $3000 to get their studies published. They probably wouldn’t be happy with a dog reviewer.</p>
  30. <p style="padding-left: 30px;">“While this started as something lighthearted, I think it is important to expose shams of this kind which prey on the gullible, especially young or naive academics and those from developing countries,” Professor Daube said.</p>
  31. <p>Dr Doll refused to comment unless she was taken for walkies.</p>

  84. <p>He weighed just 2.5 oz when he was born and wasn’t breathing – so owner Andrea McGowan revived him with a towel.</p>
  85. <p>Raising a puppy this size is difficult. He had to be bottle fed every two hours until he was strong enough to survive. And there was the constant worrying about him getting dehydrated. After the feeding McGowan had to rub his belly to make him poo and wee.</p>
  86. <p>She says that tending to Tiny Tim was more difficult than raising her own three kids because it was harder to work out what he needed. She was afraid for a while that Tim wasn’t going to make it, but now he’s doing really well. He is a feisty little dog and very brave.</p>
  87. <p>And Tim gets to&#0160; go to work each day he family’s Bolton-based fish and chip shop.</p>

  217. <p>A Chicago police officer, Juan Farris, not long out of the police academy, sprang into action to rescue a Pit Bull&#0160;from drowning in Lake Michigan.</p>
  218. <p>He and other officers had responded to an auto accident when they saw a dog running along the edge of the lake.</p>
  219. <p>As the dog was drinking out of Lake Michigan, he apparently leaned too far over and tumbled into the water. He struggled to get back on the concrete, but couldn’t get a grip.</p>
  220. <p>Officer Juan Farris explained:</p>
  221. <p style="padding-left: 30px;">“He just kept running back and forth, was pretty excited. Kept trying to get water out of the lake and fell into the lake. I heard the splash. Once I heard, I turned over, I saw him swimming, just went over there and grabbed him. I was hoping he didn’t get too far, because it would’ve been quite the battle if I had to jump in,”</p>
  222. <p>Video shot by a news helicopter shows Farris lying flat on the concrete, reaching down and pulling the dog up to safety.</p>
  223. <p>If no one claims the friendly dog, Farris hopes to have a new family member.</p>

  256. <p>The development of these luxury dog mansions began three years ago according to Alice Willimas, Creative Director at&#0160;<a href="http://hecateverona.com/">Hecate Verona</a>.</p>
  257. <p style="padding-left: 30px;">&#0160;Why wouldn’t a dog house be as elegant and beautiful as its owner’s? Why shouldn’t an architect design a house for the dog? What if it could be beautiful, stylish and also practical? What if it had miniature engravings, windows, doors etc all in proportion with the dog house? Why is it that during a time when a dog is considered to be a family member can’t a dog also have its own dog mansion equal to its owner’s, where he can lie comfortably when outdoors?</p>
  258. <p style="padding-left: 30px;">Our objective was to create a majestic and royal looking dog manor which seeks to complement the garden and its surrounding in which it stands.</p>
  259. <p>The dogs are not expected to actually live outside. The dogs live inside with their owners. The dog house has all the comforts of an indoor living room, making the whole experience of staying outdoors more fun and enjoyable.&#0160;</p>
  260. <p style="padding-left: 30px;"><a class="asset-img-link" href="http://thepoodleanddogblog.typepad.com/.a/6a00d83451580669e201bb09a3f38a970d-pi" style="display: inline;"><br /><img alt="Mansion2" class="asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d83451580669e201bb09a3f38a970d img-responsive" src="http://thepoodleanddogblog.typepad.com/.a/6a00d83451580669e201bb09a3f38a970d-500wi" style="display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;" title="Mansion2" /></a></p>
  261. <p style="text-align: center;">Hecate Verona will start taking orders for the luxury dog mansions this month. Each house takes 2-4 months to complete, after which it is delivered straight to the client.</p></div>

  282. <p>Two-year-old Leonard was set to be euthanized at an Ohio humane society after the staff found him to be “aggressive, and not suitable for adoption.”</p>
  283. <p>But the humane society’s director, Jim Alloway, who has a background in working with police dogs, thought he would be perfect for law enforcement.</p>
  284. <p>After some training, he is officially on duty with the Clay Township Police Department. Turns out he was not aggressive, just &#0160;bored and needed a job. He is the first Pit Bull to be certified as a police dog in Ohio.</p>
  285. <p>Because of pubic perception of a Pit Bull as a vicious breed, Leonard’s training was different from most police dogs.</p>
  286. <p>According to Clay Township Police Chief Terry Mitchell</p>
  287. <p style="padding-left: 30px;">&#0160;The only thing this dog does is find narcotics. He doesn’t track, he doesn’t apprehend people, he doesn’t bite, he doesn’t have any aggression training, he doesn’t find lost articles. He finds narcotics.</p>
  288. <p style="padding-left: 30px;">Now he’s our bud. Everyone on the department loves him. It’s been nothing but good.</p>
  289. <p>When Leonard is not on duty, he hangs out with the Chief.</p></div>
