MSU loses stallion with top pedigree

Mississippi State University stallion Minister Slew, a grandson of 1977 Triple Crown winner Seattle Slew, was euthanized on July 11 after fracturing a leg during a sudden thunderstorm. Donated to the university in 2002, Minister Slew was alone in his paddock when he apparently spooked or took a misstep during the storm.

Hiking with dogs can be smelly situation

Clarion Ledger by
Dr. Mark Russak

Summer is here, and for a treat you take your dog out for a hike in the woods.

He or she is ecstatic and races off, nose to the ground. Soon you hear the dog crashing through the undergrowth on his way back, but even before you see him, you can smell him! He comes back with his head and shoulders coated with a disgusting, sticky substance that would turn off a vulture. And, to top it off, it's obvious he is mightily pleased with himself since he has a big, lolling grin on his face. What's happening here and how should you react?
