Actor, Tom Hardy's beloved Labrador Dog, Woody, has died according to a report by Page Six. Hardy announced the passing of his K-9 Companion on his personal Tumbler account, in a heart felt post about his best friend. It is clear that Hardy shared a special relationship with Woody, who famously accompanied the actor on the red carpet for the premier of his movie, Legend. The Lab, who was only six years old, likely died of polymyositis which causes inflammation of muscles. RIP Woody

For most of the United States, the weather is still approaching the hottest time of the year. So it’s a great time to get outside and have some fun in the sun – and if you are lucky that means pools, beaches and travelling. Hopefully you get to bring along your four-legged best friend to add to the frolicking - but keep in mind, our fur babies have special considerations that are important for keeping them safe.
Every Summer we are reminded of important steps to keep our pups cool as the temperature rises, but even more than keeping them cool we have to keep them safe around circumstances that they are not necessary familiar with. And just because dogs are natural swimmers, there are steps you need to take if you are going to have them in and around water that you might not be aware of.
Here are some of important items to think about to ensure your pup is safe as you embark on Summer fun

Shelter Pet Project launches Social Paws just in Time to celebrate National Best Friend's Day - June 8th!
June 8th is National Best Friend’s Day and if you are like me when you say BFF one thing comes to mind, my dog, Leo. He is my perfect little, lovable, loyal mate but Leo was once just one of the six to eight million dogs and cats that wind up in shelters or rescues each year.
Celebrity Dogs are just like normal dogs, right? Not if your human is Mariah Carey, who shared a snap of her and her Jack Russell Terrier, Cha Cha on Instagram yesterday. Cha Cha is clearly living large, jet setting with her Pop star human, who was in San Francisco for the weekend. It seems Cha Cha is also enjoying using the popular dog walking app, WAG! The app, coined the "Uber" for dog walkers, allows you to order up a dog walk anytime on demand! How cool is that?1
Legendary animal expert, Dr. Jane Goodall hosts the latest episode of the PBS docu-series, Shelter Me: Community Matters. Premiering nationally this month on PBS Shelter Me: Community Matters is the seventh episode in the series that focuses on highlighting rescue animals and the people who work with them in positive, inspiring and uplifting ways. The Shelter Me series was created by filmmaker Steven Latham who hopes to use the series as a way to break down any stigmas of public animal shelters and help people realize that shelter pets make incredible pets.
“We are extremely proud to support ‘Shelter Me: Community Matters,’ said Susanne Kogut, executive director of the Petco Foundation and series presenter. “The stories in the film are examples of how communities are working together to save shelter pets and help them live their best lives.”
