San Francisco Considering Banning Sales of All Pets

A proposal to ban all pets sales in San Francisco is being considered by the city’s Board of Supervisors.

Meet Naki’o, the First Dog With Four Prosthetic Paws [VIDEO]

Abandoned as a puppy when his owners fled their foreclosed-upon Nebraska home, Naki’o lost all four of his paws to severe frostbite after stepping into a freezing puddle in the home’s abandoned basement. He was rescued, but forced to crawl on his belly to get around. Happily, new owner and veterinary technician Christie Tomlinson successfully organized a fundraiser to have Naki’o’s two back legs fitted with OrthoPets prosthetics. When Naki’o enthusiastically took to his new hind-legs like they were the real deal, OrthoPets founder Martin Kaufmann decided to complete the set free of charge, making Naki’o is the first dog to ever be fitted with four prosthetic limbs.

NO FUN ALLOWED IN THE BIG APPLE

That's the impression I get from talking with the Gabby Cabby, New York City cab driver and longtime pal of mine, Peter Franklin. The Gabman will be joining me this afternoon (Thursday) at 4:35 right after Puffman Musical Trivia. The driver of the big yellow taxi has a true tale about four people arrested for eating doughnuts in a playground.

They were apparently trying to steal a bike.

Robot Seal is a Basketball Sharp Shooter [VIDEO]

Taiwan isn't exactly a basketball power, but that could all change if the rules of the game are amended to allow giant robot seals onto the court.

For some reason, Taiwanese engineers have constructed a robotic seal that can throw a basketball through a hoop with 99 percent accuracy from ten feet out.

The video is below the jump (and begins where the robot seal starts hitting two-pointers).
