The Sploot

Canine Culture

Hello everyone, CEO Olivia here. I can sploot & do it often, but my fur sister Suzie Q can’t sploot at all. So, what is a sploot? What’s splooting? I’ll explain.

At home we call it doing the “frog Dog”, but for this article it’s the sploot. The sploot is a type of stretch that some dogs & cats do. The sploot is defined as a dog or cat laying on their belly while stretching their legs straight out behind them. When huMom see’s me splooting, she always smiles.

There are a lot of reasons why a good dog might sploot. Often we just need a good stretch in our hips & legs. Splooting feels good. When I’m feeling hot I like to sploot on the cool kitchen tiles. I can cool my belly that way.

Does your good dog or cat like to sploot? I’d like to see some pictures. Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to go sploot on the kitchen floor.

An Update on Sky ~ End BSL Everywhere

News

Hello everyone, Olivia here. Today I’m marking a sad anniversary. Back in January I barked out about a Dog in the United Kingdom named Sky. Just to remind you, Sky was taken from her family simply because of her appearance. She would have been euthanized if not for her family launching a legal battle to get her home.

Sky has now been locked up for a year. That’s a very long time to be away from your family. Especially in dog years. Sky’s family did win a decision in court to have her exempted & sent home, but that decision has been legally challenged & so Sky is still not where she should be, at home with her family. The BSL (breed Specific Legislation) has been on the books in the Untied Kingdom for 26 years. That’s just wrong & backwards. A dog is a dog.

There is an online event this week to help Sky & raise awareness of the evil BSL. You can get involved & perhaps play a small part in getting Sky home with her family. You can also sign a petition on Sky’s Facebook page. Please help bring Sky home & end BSL everywhere.
