My eldest daughter, Kit, made a movie trailer starring herself and Petey. It's a wonderful tribute to a wonderful dog. And she's a wonderful kid for doing it. Some days, when I miss that black-and-white face, I watch it. It makes me weep every time, but it also fills me with so much love.

It took the mammals to build it into a separate set of genitals.
Italian researchers recently demonstrated that trained dogs can detect prostate cancer almost unerringly. Dog handlers from the Italian Ministry of Defense trained two German shepherds to detect the smell of prostate cancer by sniffing urine samples from men with the disease.
