This brings back childhood memories! They have remade the cartoon Underdog into a movie. This is what the email had to say about the film, and here is a sneak peek as well!

“There’s no need to fear. Underdog is here!” The superhero canine with a gift for rhyme returns in an all new live-action re-imagination of the classic cartoon, UNDERDOG.

After an accident in the mysterious lab of maniacal scientist Dr. Simon Barsinister (PETER DINKLAGE), an ordinary beagle unexpectedly finds himself with unimaginable powers and the ability to speak. Armed with a fetching superhero costume, UNDERDOG (voiced by comedian JASON LEE) vows to protect the beleaguered citizens of Capitol City and, in particular, one beautiful spaniel named Polly Purebread (voiced by Academy Award® nominee AMY ADAMS). When a sinister plot by Barsinister and his overgrown henchman Cad (PATRICK WARBURTON) threatens to destroy Capitol City only UNDERDOG can save the day.

UNDERDOG stars Jim Belushi, Peter Dinklage, Alex Neuberger, Taylor Momsen with Amy Adams and Jason Lee as the voice of Underdog. Utilizing state-of-the-art CGI special effects mixed with live-action, UNDERDOG flies into theaters on August 3, 2007.

Reader question.

I got an email today from a reader who needs some help. Here is what they wrote:
Help!!!! I have 4 rescued dogs that are 10 years old. My daughter recently (one year ago) moved back in with us and also has 2 rescued dogs. Our city ordinance stipulates that we can only have 4 dogs at our residence and a neighbor has complained that we have too many dogs. Are there any laws that can help us? My daughter intends to move out to her own place within the next year but what do we do in the meantime? I am desperate!! These dogs are our babies and I can't imagine getting "rid" of any of them. Help!!!! Anybody!!!! We live in Galveston County Texas. Can anyone help?????

As far as I know, there aren't really any laws to get around this. The laws in my state are actually stricter than in Texas, as we are only supposed to have 2 dogs and 2 cats. Other than talking with the neighbors and letting them know the situation I can't think of anything. Any ideas?

Steps for your pet

The folowing is a paid review for Dog & Cat Steps.

I have often thought about getting our pup a dog step so she could climb into the window seat in the living room. I think she would love to look out the window without having to get one of the humans to put her up there. She would probably also love an easy way up onto the bed too, but maybe it's best that she doesn't figure that out.

The site called Help Your Pets sells Dog & Cat Steps in a variety of colors and sizes. Their pet steps are built with wood and covered in carpet, and are offered in sizes from 2, all the way up to 5,  steps. So, even if you had a really high bed or couch, they should have something that would work well for your dog or cat.

What I liked was that they had a variety of colors, and that they also offered storage lids and wheels and handles that can be added to the steps. The color I would pick would be the ivory, I think that is a nice color for the room it would be used in.

Now, our pup is nowhere near 200 pounds, but their steps can actually hold up to that wieght! Another cute thing, for the cat lovers, is that they offer a step with two cut outs below the steps that a cat could play or sleep inside. I can see a ferret enjoying something like that as well! So, if you have ever considered getting steps for your pet, be sure to check their website!
