    Where Dogs Can Be ... Well, Bees

    beedogs.com

    Okay, this is really a site dedicated solely to dogs dressed up like bees; however, it's not the dogs but rather the witty commentary that had us laughing out loud. Voted one of the best sites of 2006 by Yahoo, beedogs.com is a mindless, fun run that might get you thinking about dressing your own dog to "bee" fashionable. It certainly reminds us of the deep but sometimes inanely absurd attitudes we have about dogs. Try the site. It's funny and quick. You're really not doing much after the holi­days anyway, are you?

    An Animal is Born

    www.dailymail.co.uk

    An unborn elephant looking like a perfect miniature. A dolphin swimming through amniotic fluid, just as it will have to the moment it's born. An unborn golden retriever panting. Visit this site to see some amazing pictures from the National Geographic show about life in the womb. Using an array of technology, the images reveal what until now has been a secret-exactly how animals develop in the womb. The images were created by the same team who, in 2004, showed how human embryos "walk in the womb." Using a combination of three-dimensional ultrasound scans, computer graphics, and tiny cameras, the team was able to show the entire process from conception to birth. "These kinds of images from inside animals have never been seen before," says Jeremy Dear of Pioneer Productions, who made the film. Search "animals in the womb." An encore presentation of "In the Womb: Animals" will air on Monday, March 19, at 9:00 pm Eastern/Pacific time on the National Geographic Channel.

    Is It Really Working?

    www.vet-task-force.com

    Task Force for Veterinary Science Web site's mission is to promote animal health and welfare; protect consumers from fraudulent, unsafe, and unproven veterinary practices; promote science-based medicine and the critical examination of medical claims; and provide sound information and leadership to veterinary practitioners and their clients. This site boasts an array of scientific documentation regarding alternative therapies. It's a good place for the skeptical mind to find out what, if any, research has been conducted on the many branches of the growing range of veterinary alternative and complementary medicine. The site is straightforward and easily navigated but lacks visuals. Commentary also exists on AVMA position statements and FDA rules for adverse drug reporting.
