"While many of us see our pets as surrogate family members, we do not want our pets to feel on equal status with children. In fact, the pet may become protective over the owners and attempt to defend them by attacking the child for yelling or merely playing with his parents." — Dr. Ashanti Woods, pediatrician.

But not necessarily for the reason you'd think. ​​​

A recent Michigan Court of Appeals ruling paves the way for using “support dogs” in courtrooms. The dogs are trained to calm and comfort vulnerable witnesses, particularly young children, and help them testify.

Prince's elevation of his female bandmates, his befriending of legendary badasses like Madonna and his appreciation of artists like Misty Copeland should be a celebrated part of his legacy.

A cautionary tale about the rabid skunk that was found in Dexter.
