Bella tops the names for dogs, Max for cats, while Charlie was the most popular choice for exotic pets. This was the second year in a row that Bella topped the list of names for dogs, something that can most likely be attributed to the popularity of the lead character of the same name in the Twilight series of books and movies.

The Army bomb detector dog who dodged bullets on her own for over a year after getting lost in an ambush in Afghanistan could be home for Christmas. And it will be a miraculous home-coming, fit for a hero, after an amazing story of survival following Sarbi's separation from Australian troops there. Already, a book has been penned on the back of Sarbi's return to the ranks - after having possibly been forced to bunker down with the enemy.  
Calico Cat Breeds By Sonia Nair http://www.buzzle.com/articles/calico-cat-breeds.html Calico cats are one of the popular types of domestic cats that are much loved for their tricolor fur. If you search for the different cat breeds, then, calico will be missing from the list. In other words, calico cats are not specific breeds, like the Siamese or the Persian. A calico cat can be a Manx or a Turkish van or a Scottish Fold. This article will provide you with some information about what is a calico cat and calico cat breeds. More about Calico Cats

As mentioned above, calico cats are not a specific breed, but are named for their coat color that resembles the calico cloth once imported to England from India.
The Best Dog Breed for Families and Children WebMD helps you identify the best dog breed for your family by answering commonly asked questions about dog breeds. By Sandy Eckstein
WebMD Pet Health Feature Reviewed by Mark J. Stickney, DVM, MD The kids have been begging for a puppy for years. You've been able to put them off with some fish, maybe a hamster, or even a cat. But this time, only something with four feet from the canine family is going to do. Although many people are happy to get a mixed breed puppy, others like to know a little more about what that cute little ball of fur will look like in a year. If that’s the case, then it’s time to look at purebred dogs. But how do you find the best one for your family? We asked Gina DiNardo, assistant vice president of the AmericanKennel Club and second-generation dog fancier, for some advice.   Q: What kind of research should I do when trying to decide which breed is best for my family?
Shelters filling up as Gulf pet owners struggle by VICKI SMITH (AP) http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5gFb4WL5ADa_0kNH2_0XQ3DpO__kwD9GVJJUG1 VIOLET, La. — Double-bunked behind the bars at the overrun St. Bernard Animal Shelter are more victims of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill: shiny-coated Labrador retrievers, long-haired Chihuahuas and a fluffy Shih Tzu. Among the more typical skinny, stray mutts are healthy, seemingly well-tended dogs whose owners, because of the massive spill, suddenly don't have the time or money to keep them. "It's the economy, the uncertainty of the future, for sure," said shelter director Beth Brewster, who saw 117 owners surrender their animals last month — up from 17 in June 2009. May was particularly bad, Brewster said: The Violet shelter took in 288 animals that month, compared with 60 in May 2009. Dean Howard of the Louisiana Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals said several coastal parishes began reporting a spike in owner relinquishments immediately after the spill. In St. Bernard Parish, nearly every livelihood is somehow connected to the Gulf. Fishermen normally ply the waters for seafood. Offshore rig workers drill for oil and longshoremen unload a never-ending flow cargo ships on the Mississippi River. But the April 20 explosion of the Deepwater Horizon rig, which killed 11 workers and continues to spew millions of gallons of oil into the water, has created multiple problems for pet owners. Sasha, a rust-colored Lab mix, was dropped off with nine 1-day-old puppies by a BP oil worker who suddenly had more work than he could handle and no time for the dogs, animal control officer Shannon Asevedo said.
Pet photographer shines spotlight on neediest faces In today's paper I've got a story about a pretty cool woman named Mary Swift who for the last number of years has made it her business to take pictures of every single animal available for adoption at the Baltimore Humane Society. She's a professional photographer by trade who specializes in animals. But she doesn't charge the shelter a dime. That's now more than 3,000 pet portraits. All for free. Because she wants to give these dogs and cats the best possible chance for a home.
