Our pets are family. Can you imagine your dog or cat missing for seven weeks and then being reunited? TJ the beagle went missing in Fort Collins and was found seven weeks later in Boulder.
TJ The Beagle, via City of Boulder Press Release
Yesterday, Wednesday, July 9, at 4:45 p.m. Boulder Animal Control Officers responded to the area of 15th Street and Lee Hill Road after receiving a report of a dog being struck by a car. The officers located a beagle-mix with severe leg injuries. While preparing the dog for transport to a veterinary clinic, they scanned him and discovered a microchip, which provided information about the owner.
During the transport to the emergency vet clinic, officers contacted David Snyder of Fort Collins, who informed them "TJ" a four-year-old Beagle-mix, had been missing for seven weeks. He was ecstatic that his dog had been found. Mr. Snyder told Boulder officers he notified Fort Collins Animal Control, the local Humane Society and had posted flyers when the dog went missing. For several weeks, he received calls from people saying the dog had been sighted but attempts to catch him failed. Mr. Snyder even spotted the animal himself in LaPorte, CO but TJ managed to escape. He told officers the sightings stopped on June 8 and after that he believed the dog had been hit by a car or killed by another animal.
Boulder Animal Control began getting calls about a dog-at-large in the area of 15th Street and Lee Hill Road about three weeks ago. They attempted to capture the dog on numerous occasions and even set a large dog trap to no avail. They were unaware the beagle was missing from Fort Collins until yesterday. Upon speaking with Mr. Snyder he believes TJ had quite the adventure, traveling on foot from Fort Collins to LaPorte then headed south to Boulder.
Although TJ's injuries are severe and may require a partial amputation of one of his legs, it is believed he will survive. He and Mr. Snyder are now back home where TJ will receive follow up veterinary care.
Fireworks in celebration of Independence Day may frighten cats and dogs, causing them to panic and escape the confines of a yard or even the house. To help protect pets during the Fourth of July holiday, the Dumb Friends League is offering the following tips for pet owners:
•Keep your pet indoors during fireworks celebrations in a quiet, isolated room with covered windows, such as a bathroom, or a basement where there are no windows. Turn on a fan, radio or TV to muffle the sound of fireworks. These devices provide familiar indoor sounds and may help soothe your pet if he must be alone on this noisy holiday.
•Don't bring your pet to a fireworks display.
•If you know from past experience that your pet will suffer from severe anxiety caused by the loud noise of fireworks, you may consider talking with your veterinarian in advance about giving your pet a mild tranquilizer.
•If your pet behaves nervously by pacing, whining or crying, try playing with her as a distraction or doing something she enjoys. Attempting to reassure your dog or cat by petting, soothing or offering treats when she's afraid may reinforce fearful or anxious behavior.
•Make sure your pet always wears an appropriately fitted collar and an I.D. tag with your current phone number and address. Your pet should also be wearing a current license/rabies tag. You may want to talk with your veterinarian about providing your pet with a microchip identification implant in case your pet loses his collar and tags.
•If you find a lost pet, take it to your nearest animal shelter. You can also place a "found" ad in your local paper or on Craigslist and post notices around your neighborhood.

Denver Zoo is celebrating the birth of three maned wolf pups, which were born on May 1. The unnamed triplets, made up of two males and one female, were born to mother, Adrianna, and father, Inigo, and are the first of their species to be born at the Zoo since 2009. All three pups were just given a clean bill of health by Denver Zoo veterinarians. Though the pups are not yet old enough to explore the outside world on their own yet, Zoo visitors might catch glimpses of them as their protective mother totes them from den to den inside the Wolf Pack Woods exhibit.
These are the first pups for both Inigo and Adrianna, who both arrived at Denver Zoo in September 2013. Inigo came from Texas’ Abilene Zoo, where he was born in December 2011. Adrianna arrived from Springfield, Missouri’s Dickerson Park Zoo, but was born at the Fossil Rim Wildlife Center, near Glen Rose, Texas in February 2012. The pair came to Denver Zoo as part of a Species Survival Plan (SSP) recommendation from the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA), which ensures healthy populations and genetic diversity among zoo animals. Fortunately, the couple has proved to be an excellent match.
Maned wolves resemble red foxes with long legs. Despite their reddish coloring and general appearance they are not related to foxes and despite their name, they are not members of the wolf family. The maned wolf is the largest wild dog of South America. Standing about three feet tall at the shoulder, their long legs enable them to see above the tall grass – an adaptation that helps them hunt for food and avoid predators.
Do you want your eyes to "pop?" Try false eyelashes. You can create thick, lush lashes for under $10.
I normally use Ardell Lashes from King Soopers, you can pick them up on sale for under $3 or a package with the glue for under $8.
________________________________________________________________________________________ The eyes have it!
Use a eyeliner to cover your lash roots. I use black liquid eyeliner.
squeeze a drop of glue on a surface.
Use scissors to trim eyelashes, so they are not too long and look natural.
Dip the lash root in the glue.
Place the false eyelash on your eyelash roots.
Use the end of the glue tube to press the false eyelash along your eyelid.
Qtip also works well.
Denver Zoo welcomed the addition of a new, female clouded leopard cub this weekend to encourage successful breeding later in life. The unnamed cub was born on April 10 at the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute (SCBI), a veterinary and reproductive research center headquartered in Front Royal, Virginia. She arrived at Denver Zoo on Saturday, May 17 on a Frontier Airlines flight, accompanied by a Denver Zoo keeper and staff member. The cub will be introduced to the zoo’s current clouded leopard cubs, male, Pi and female, Rhu, in the Zoo’s Toyota Elephant Passage exhibit in the near future.
“As the official airline of Denver Zoo, we are proud to have been able to help bring home the Zoo’s newest animal,” says Daniel Shurz, senior vice president, commercial. “I look forward to visiting the cub at its new home soon!”
“This move is critically important to ensuring the long term success of this species. Through collaborative research between the SCBI’s Dr. Jo Gayle Howard, Nashville Zoo and scientists in Thailand, we have learned that cubs must socialize with other cubs at an early age in order to be receptive to breeding as adults. With few cubs in zoos this is a very important step to ensuring a stable long-term population,” says Denver Zoo’s Assistant Curator of Toyota Elephant Passage Rebecca McCloskey.
