Rex the 2-year-old German shepherd is being called a “hero dog” for taking at least three gunshots while protecting his teenage owner from burglars. He is in stable condition at our BluePearl Veterinary Partners hospital in Renton. In the intensive care unit, Rex is receiving pain medication, antibiotics, wound care and round-the-clock monitoring.

    Hero dog takes bullet for teenager in Des Moines home invasion
    SEATTLE, Wash. - When burglars violently broke into a Des Moines home mid-afternoon on Wednesday, a teenager hid in a closet and held on to his dog. But Rex - a 2-year-old German shepherd - ran downstairs to protect the 16-year-old. The dog confronted the burglars, who beat him until he was bloody.

Thank you to the Northside residents who went to city hall last week to speak about the concerns of our neighborhood and how proposed changes to regulations of boarding houses may impact our community. "A meeting to discuss the proposals at City Hall drew dozens of city residents, boarding house owners, former convicts and civil rights advocates. The meeting illustrated the divide between neighborhood residents worried about public safety and civil rights activists advocating for the poor and prisoners re-entering society. ...Others voiced fears about public safety, particularly residents of the Near Northside, where an 11-year-old boy was killed two years ago while he was walking home from school, and from southwest Houston, where a boarding-home fire last year displaced 29."

    After fatal fires, Houston officials propose stronger lodging house safety rules
    After residential facility fires last year claimed the lives of three people and displaced dozens of others, Houston city officials on Tuesday unveiled several proposed changes to city ordinances aimed at improving oversight of the buildings. A meeting to discuss the proposals at City Hall drew dozens of city residents, boarding house owners, former convicts and civil rights advocates.

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.
