Scooby, a three-year-old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, was injured after getting his leg caught in long grass on council-owned land in Brighton, East Sussex.

His disabled owner Rebecca Richardson, 48, claims that she now faces a £5,000 veterinary bill which she cannot afford to pay as she lives on benefits.

The couple claim Disability Living Allowance because they are unable to work due to back and hip problems.

Mrs Richardson last worked 18 years ago as a cleaner in a hotel but had to leave the job due to mental health issues. Meanwhile, her husband was a binman in Dorking, Surrey, but was forced to retire 10 years ago because of his back problems.  More

shahiTwo U.S. F16 fighter jets escorted a plane back to Toronto on Friday after a passenger, apparently irate over an expensive purchase of cigarettes from an airport’s duty-free shop, allegedly threatened the aircraft, authorities said.

Ali Shahi (picture), 25, a Canadian man, began ripping apart magazines and the safety card from the pouch of his seat on a Panama City-bound Boeing 737 after he read in the in-flight magazine that cigarettes were cheaper to buy on the plane than in Pearson airport, where Flight 772 originated, the Toronto Star reported.

Soon after his outburst, Shahi allegedly uttered a threat against the aircraft, which was overheard by a flight attendant and reported to the captain.

The flight, which was flying over West Virginia at the time, then turned around back to Toronto, and was joined by a U.S. fighter escort.  More

lipomaNorth Ridgeville, Ohio – An advanced veterinary procedure being labeled “Pet Liposuction” is being used to treat overweight animals at a Northeast Ohio animal clinic that also offers laser surgery and underwater treadmill therapy for pets.

Veterinarian Dr. Rebecca Pentecost of Animal Clinic Northview in North Ridgeville said that the liposuction for pets is less of a cosmetic procedure, but instead is used to treat “benign fatty masses,” also known as lipoma (picture), which can worsen in older or overweight animals, WJW-TV reports.

“You don’t have the discomfort you’re going to have with a major surgery,” Pentecost told WJW of the lipoma surgeries that also require fewer anesthesias than more invasive procedures. “They can be really big, I had one that we took almost three-and-a-half liters of fat out of it.”  More

“The more I study dogs and the more I study their brains, the more similarities I see to human brains,” Berns told WGCL-TV.

“They are intelligent, they are emotional, and they’ve been ignored in terms of research and understanding how they think. So, we are all interested in trying to develop ways to understand how their minds work.”

woodArizona Gov. Jan Brewer ordered a review of the state’s execution process after a convicted double murderer gasped and snorted for more than an hour and a half before his death Wednesday.

Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne’s office said Joseph Rudolph Wood was pronounced dead at 3:49 p.m. local time, one hour and 57 minutes after the execution started.

Wood’s lawyers had filed an emergency appeal with the U.S. Supreme Court while the execution was underway, demanding that it be stopped. The appeal said Wood was “gasping and snorting for more than an hour.”
