Heartbroken dog owners mourn the loss of their pet...

Dogs owners, particularly in the southern U.S., are being warned to keep their animals away from ponds and lakes where blooms of blue-green algae could be deadly to their fury loved ones. Melissa Martin and Denise Mintz said their four dogs — Abby, Harpo and Izzy — died within hours of frolicking in a pond Wilmington, North Carolina. In a heartbreaking Facebook post, Martin wrote that "our dogs crossed the rainbow bridge together. They contracted blue green algae poisoning and there was nothing they could do. We are gutted." "I wish I could do today over," Martin continued. "I would give anything to have one more day with them." 
In another incident, a couple from Marietta, Georgia, said they lost their dog recently just an hour after visiting Lake Allatoona in Bartow County. "We took our sweet Arya to the lake and had the best day playing ball and swimming around! About 30 minutes later on the drive home, we noticed her making weird noises. They rushed her to an ER but by "the time we got there, she was brain dead," Fleming reported. In Austin, Texas, pet owner Clare Saccardi said she recently lost her 4-year-old Golden Retriever, Harper, after a visit to Red Bud Isle on Thursday. Within about an hour and a half of leaving, Saccardi says Harper began showing symptoms. “She’s struggling to breathe, and she starts getting a little foam in her mouth, and so we take her to the emergency vet, and ten minutes after we got there, they told me that, ‘Your baby’s not doing good. We have to give her CPR,’ and she died shortly after that.” The dog deaths in North Carolina, Georgia and Texas have all been linked to blooms of blue-green algae.

Man bathes dog with two chimps

A video of a man bathing a dog with two chimpanzees has gone viral after a video was shared on Instagram by a user named Kody Antle. The clip, which has been viewed over six lakh times, features a dog sitting in a small tub while Antle, along with the two chimpanzees, gives him a bath.
And after the dog is done, the chimps and the man are seen cleaning themselves in the floatable pools. The chimps also help the man by rubbing soap on his body. 
However, some have pointed out that the actions of the two chimpanzees shown in the video were unusual. Wildlife experts have pointed out in the past that such behaviour is not normal for the animals and people should not be encouraged to keep them as pets.
