With the help of WildEarth Guardians and Center for Native Ecosystems, based in Denver, we've pulled together a list of endangered plants and animals in the Rocky Mountains and neighboring Great Plains that the federal government has either protected under the Endangered Species Act or are on the official waiting list. Their stories are a mixture of hope and fear, and effective action is needed to secure their futures. Check out their stories.

Checking Out Thanksgivings Past - 1947
By Gordonskene Thursday Nov 26, 2009
Morgan Beatty: “Around the world today, the news reflects a hard discipline upon the people. In London, the Council of Foreign Ministers tries desperately to achieve a basis for peace. But as they worked, these foreign ministers, their government spoke in alien terms, through news events that hardly seem accidental. In France, the Communist controlled Federation of Labor has called out a million and a quarter French workers out of her six million. And not a striking union among them will listen to government proposals to go back to work. The French government has, with dramatic suddenness pointed a finger at Moscow. Not with mere paper charges but by direct action. Nineteen Soviet citizens in France have been deported for taking too active a part in French internal affairs. Today the Soviet government, stung to the quick, demanded that the French government produce the missing nineteen without delay at the Soviet Embassy in Paris. Supposedly that’s quite impossible now, because the nineteen are believed to be in Berlin.”

This week we learned that the average dog is as intelligent as a two-year-old child. The study was established based on the canine's language development abilities, as both two-year-old children and dogs can learn up to 165 words.
Smarter than a two year old! Cattle and Sheep dogs have the highest intelligence.

A pit bull decided to do battle with a Porcupine in the back of his house in Southern California..
But being brave and stupid, he learnt the hard way that he can't always win, no matter how tough you are..
A vet sedated the dog then removed 1,347 quills..
The dog survived, and hopefully learned his lesson..

William Etling tells us why Michael Jackson won't be buried at Neverland.
Rampant rumors of a Neverland museum and mausoleum ignore one major, King Kong-like issue: zoning. As a real estate broker in Los Olivos for decades, I can tell you right now, it’s not going to happen. The fact that he doesn't own it anymore is just a minor obstacle.
( Will Jackson be buried at Neverland, and will the property be turned into a Graceland, with Jackson's grave the central attraction? )

Porterhouse, a 4-year-old brown and white bulldog from Des Moines, beat out 49 other dogs from eight states to claim the title. The event coincides with the Drake Relays, hosted for the 100th time this week by the Drake University Bulldogs.
The judges weren't looking for the prettiest mutt in the mix. No, they wanted to see drool, bloodshot eyes and bowed legs _ and costumes don't hurt either. Owners slapped tutus, blonde wigs, goggles and all kinds of wacky hats on their precious pups.
Porterhouse, who finished second in 2006 and 2007, sported camouflage and an army helmet for the occasion

The castaway dog who swam SIX miles through shark-infested waters, then survived FOUR months on a desert island
When Jan Griffith's beloved dog, Sophie Tucker fell overboard from her family's yacht she feared her pet had drowned.
But Sophie Tucker, a grey and black cattle dog, wasn't going to give up that easily.The determined pet swam six miles through ferocious shark-infested seas to an island, where she survived for more than four months by hunting wild goats for food.
The extraordinary story of the castaway hound emerged today when Miss Griffith was reunited with her beloved pet.
'I thought I'd never see her again, but she's proved to be a dog who can really look after herself,' said Miss Griffith.
Sophie Tucker, named after the American vaudeville comedian, fell overboard from the family's yacht when they ran into bad weather off the Queensland coastal town of Mackay.
Miss Griffith and her friends searched the area, putting their own lives at risk in the rough seas, but there was no sign of Sophie Tucker.
Unknown to them, the dog swam towards remote St Bees Island, a quiet volcanic strip of land fringed with reefs.
Sophie is happy to be home. The tropical paradise was lovely, but she had only one thing on her mind, her humans, Jane and Dave Griffith, who were on a sailing holiday in the Whitsundays when the incident occurred, they were convinced there was no way she could have survived in the choppy waters.
"We hit a rough patch and when we turned around the dog was gone," Mrs Griffith said.
BBC has video here of the special Queensland Healer. "She surprised us all," said owner Jan Griffith. "She was a house dog and look what she's done, she has swum over five nautical miles, she has managed to live off the land all on her own. We wish she could talk, we truly do."
He is cute, but he'll pay later!
