The AKC recognized 2 new dog breeds this year, (in January).  The Chinook in the working group and the  Portuguese Podengo Pequeno in the hound group!

Want to get your "creepies" on? NatGeo Wild is showing "Super Spider" right now (where I live)
I didn't know that the Orb Spider recycled it's web. They also eat the web when they haven't caught anything in it and they get hungry and need a protein fix! Cool!

I like watching spiders...on TV. In the last week, I've had 2 huge wolf spiders in the house near my favorite chair. The 1st one was next to my hand. I jumped up grabbed my shoe and...well you know the rest of the story. (hubby gets upset when I do this) The next one I saw was on the wall by my chair. I got my husband, told him if the wanted to save it he better come quick cause I was going "shoe" it away!!! lol  He grabbed it and put it outside.

Late to the convo regarding spiders.  Around here a species of spider (I was driving and didn't catch which one) are hatching.  The young spin a few strands of web and wait for the wind to catch it.  They float and fly until they get caught on a tree where they will make their home.  Some cities have clouds of webs hanging from their trees. 

From experience I can attest to the fact that dogs will eat anything.  That was the most expensive dinner I've ever heard of.
