Photos by Flip Nicklin — who co founded whale trust, a non-profit organization dedicated to research and public education — of north pacific humpbacks in their winter hawaiian breading and birthing grounds (the photos without the spruce trees) and off the coast of alaska (the ones with the spruce trees), where they feed in the summer. this annual migration of about six thousand miles is one of the longest of any mammal.
As the summer months approach and family vacations are being planned, the family pet also needs a vacation. Whether you decide to board your animal at the local pet motel, where they cater to your dogs every whim or taking your dog with you on vacation, these decisions need to be made as a family.
I love pit bulls, but I'm scared to get one. I have always taken the whole "murderous dog" thing with a grain of salt, but my parents' friends own a pit bull and, sure enough, it bit someone's hand while they were studying and they had to get 30+ stitches. All I know is I definitely don't want them in the house with a child.
