According to BluePearl's head of behavioral medicine, Dr. Jill Sackman, cats are very trainable and have a learning capacity similar to dogs. Does your cat know any tricks? Tell us in the comments.

    How to train your cat - and why you should
    It's common knowledge that dogs can be trained to obey cues and do tricks, and it's a common misconception that the same is not true for cats. Actually, cats are very trainable and have a learning capacity similar to dogs, according to Dr. Jill Sackman, a BluePearl veterinarian and pet behavior expert.

Limb amputation sounds like a scary thing. But for cats and dogs with debilitating and painful disease or trauma to the leg, amputation can sometimes be the best decision for quality of life and pain relief. Most pets with three legs live perfectly happy and normal lives. Dr. Philippa Pavia, a board-certified veterinary surgeon, answers the FAQ about three-legged pets and limb amputation:

    FAQ About Three-Legged Pets and Limb Amputation
    Limb amputation sounds like a scary and life-changing event. But for animals with debilitating and painful disease or trauma of the leg, amputation can sometimes be the best decision for quality of life and pain relief. It may surprise you to learn that most pets with three legs live perfectly happy and normal lives.

Solid Waste Department (SWD) is currently ONLY picking up: REGULAR TRASH as scheduled regularly. HARVEY DEBRIS ~However~ to pick up the Harvey Debris, the homeowner must call 311 first. 311 will mail them an authorization form to complete and re-mail to 311, allowing SWD to enter the property to pick up the debris. Without that release, SWD WILL NOT pick up Harvey Debris. Solid Waste Department IS NOT PICKING UP: Yard Waste / Tree Waste Heavy Trash Q & A Why are some residents heavy trash being picked up and not mine? Answer from SWD: If they pass by with the Truck carrying the pickup claw, and they feel their truck has enough space available to pick up the heavy trash, they have been instructed to do so while they are in the area, their discretion. They also have an option to take it to their nearest Depository. Due to Harvey SWD has extended hours Monday – Sunday 9am to 6pm . Attached please find the Neighborhood Depositories and Recycling Centers locations/times, rules and regulations. http://www.houstontx.gov/solidwaste/pdf_files/003_rules_07072016_(v13).pdf

Dexter the Labrador retriever was shot in the head more than once, and a good Samaritan brought him to our BluePearl hospital in Brandon. While it appears the bullets missed his brain, he will need oral surgery to repair jaw damage and begin his journey to recovery. Dexter is getting excellent care by BluePearl clinicians, and rescuers with Labrador Retriever Rescue of Florida are working to find him a new home.

    Dog, shot in head, taken to veterinary hospital (w/video)
    BRANDON - Someone shot a Labrador retriever in the head, more than once. Rescuers can't say why. But they have rallied around the dog in recent days, giving him a new start and a new name: Dexter. In one way, he was a lucky dog, though clearly not lucky enough.

Today we take a moment to celebrate the life of Emma Primas, a longtime member of her Fifth Ward church and Settegast-area civic club as well as the National Council of Negro Women's Houston chapter and the NAACP. Primas, whose electoral history as a black woman included being denied the vote and paying a poll tax to access a ballot, presided with dignity and humor over her descendants – including one child, four grandchildren and extending to five great-great-great grandchildren.

    Emma Primas of Houston, one of the oldest Texans, dies at 112
    Mrs. Emma Primas, a supercentenarian, businesswoman and Houston celebrity who gained national prominence at age 109 during her 2015 meeting with President Barack Obama, died Tuesday. She was 112.

Is it acceptable to let your shy dog avoid other dogs and people if she’s otherwise healthy and content? Dr. Jill Sackman of our Behavioral Medicine service tells Pet MD the answer is a resounding yes.

    Timid Behaviors in Dogs: Are They Normal?
    Does your dog prefer the company of just a few friends (human or canine), or enjoy hanging out solely with you? We asked the experts why some dogs are timid and whether there's anything you should do about aloof behaviors in dogs.
