Veterinarian Sits in a Hot Parked Car for 30 Minutes

Veterinarian, Dr. Ernie Ward, set out to see what it feels like for a dog helplessly trapped in a hot car.

Armed with a clock, a thermometer and a video camera, Dr. Ward sat in his car, with the windows cracked, for thirty minutes while the temperature climbed to a sweltering 116 degrees.

The doctor explained, even with the windows cracked, the air in the car was still.  Just a few minutes in, and already drenched with sweat – a cooling function that dogs don’t have – Dr. Ward was already starting to reflect on the suffering that dogs must experience in the same situation.

The video below serves as a vivid reminder to pet parents to NOT leave a dog in a hot car, even if only for a few minutes.

Redneck Vasectomy

Redneck Vasectomy

After having their 11th child, an Alabama couple decided that was enough, as they could not afford a larger bed. So the husband went to his veterinarian and told him that he and his cousin didn’t want to have any more children.

The doctor told him that there was a procedure called a vasectomy that could fix the problem but that it was expensive. A less costly alternative, said the doctor, was to go home, get a cherry bomb (fireworks are legal in Alabama), light it, put it in a beer can, then hold the can up to his ear and count to 10.

The Alabamian said to the doctor, “I may not be the smartest man in the world, but I don’t see how putting a cherry bomb in a beer can next to my ear is going to help me”.

“Trust me,” said the doctor.

So the man went home, lit a cherry bomb and put it in a beer can. He held the can up to his ear and began to count:

“1”

“2”

“3”

“4”

“5”

At which point he paused, placed the beer can between his legs, an resumed counting on his other hand.

This procedure also works in Kentucky, Mississippi, and West Virginia.
