Former marine wins fight to adopt retired bomb-sniffing dog

 

 

After years of attempts to adopt the dog that stood by her side in Iraq, Marine Cpl. Megan Leavey will finally be reunited with Sgt. Rex, thanks to Sen. Charles E. Schumer and the support of 20,000 American citizens.

 

The dog handler and the bomb-sniffing German shepherd Rex served together for more than three years and through two deployments until a 2006 roadside bomb took them out of commission. Leavey, 28, recovered from her injuries, and when she completed her Marine Corps service in 2007, she attempted to adopt Rex. But her request was denied because the military determined that Rex was still fit for work.

 

“Rex is my partner. I love him,” Leavey said in an interview. “We have been through so much together. I’ve spent day and night with this dog. It’s a very strong bond.”

My cat has suddenly developed dandruff. What could be going on?

 

 

If kitties could talk, what would they say? “More pets on the belly, please!” Or maybe: “Bring on the catnip!”

 

All kidding aside, if felines did speak our language, it would certainly help us out when it comes to their health care. But that doesn’t mean that we can’t read their needs from physical cues.

 

Dandruff can be related to many things, including low humidity and not enough fatty acids in the feline’s diet. Older cats sometimes develop “dry skin” normally as they age. There’s also a contagious “walking dandruff” mite called Cheyletiella.

LOOK: President Obama’s iPad 2

 

 

A recent White House photograph of President Obama reveals an iPad 2 resting on the Oval Office desk, showing the commander in chief is, at least in one regard, not so different from about 55 million other consumers.

 

According to the White House Flickr account, the president was signing the “Establishment of the Interagency Trade Enforcement Center” executive order on Feb. 28 when Pete Souza snapped the photo.

Joshua Tree House

 

 

Moving up slightly in size, Small Eco Houses considers a prefab home that was envisioned as a mountain or vacation retreat. Would you believe that this space-efficient design features two bedrooms, a kitchen and two bathrooms?

 

The small-but-comfortable house is prefabricated off site from recyclable metal cladding and wood. Several skylights provide illumination and ventilation, and the plumbing and electrical systems are designed to leave no visible mark on the terrain should the house be picked up and moved to a new vista.

Lello Bookshop, Porto, Portugal

 

 

Opened in 1906, Lello is one of the world’s most beautiful bookstores. Thanks largely to its centerpiece, this glossy red staircase with carved wooden banisters that leads up to a glass atrium.

 

The stairs are just as beautiful from underneath, with carved leaflike flourishes and the same bluish-green and gold paint as the ceiling above it.

 

Look for lovely neo-Gothic and Art Nouveau elements to the rest of the shop as you browse.

Tiger & Turtle—Magic Mountain, Duisburg, Germany

 

 

It looks like a standard roller coaster from a distance, but upon closer inspection, you’ll be faced with an ingenious staircase stretched through all kinds of curves.

 

German artists Heike Mutter and Ulrich Genth made this interactive sculpture, unveiled in late 2011, so that visitors could explore the 249 steps both at day, taking in views high above the Rhine, and at night with LED lights on the handrails illuminating the staircase.

 

If you’re wondering how to climb around the loop, well, you can’t. It’s closed off by a barrier.
