Welcome to Episode 47.
First off, we'd like to thanks Cherry Martin for her constructive criticism! She mentioned that Dr. Miller says the intro extremely fast so much so she thought it was an actual recording we replayed every time! Dr. Miller actually does the inro each and every time. If you noticed we did slow it down this time.
We'll talk about some weird words Dr. Miller pronounces wrong as well as some weird English grammar and spelling. Check out the clip below!
We'll about last week and how the word ignorant may have come off wrong. We apologize and did not mean to sound stand offish in our use of the word.
We'll talk about the death of Mr. Peanut and the huge marketing ploy it could be.
Did you know the most trafficked animal is Africa's Pangolin? In April of 2019, Singapore seized a world record of 25.6 tons of pangolin scales with an estimated worth of $76.5 million! The Pangolin comes in first with the Rhino and Tigers coming in behind that as the most poached animals.
It's been a chilly one here in the South and Florida's Iguanas are taking the brunt of it. The cold weather affects their ability to grip on to trees. SO much so the National Weather Service issued a 'Falling Iguana" warning for Florida.
The DOT and numerous airlines are restricting the animals that can fly as service animals. Peacocks, Turkeys, and strangely enough, Cats have been cut from the list. To help make pet owners feel safe while traveling with their beloved pets, Delta has created pet-friendly flying compartments in some aircraft with climate-controlled areas as well as crates with automatic feeders and water dispensers!
In other news, an animal shelter is looking for a home of a 19-year-old cat who was though to be sick. Turns out she is just a jerk!
Our interesting case of the week is Brutus! Brutus, a 10-week old goolden-doodle, came to us with a broken femur. He was fixed right up and is now back home with his family.
Lastly is our word of the week is Urticaria. "Urticaria also known as hives is an outbreak of swollen, pale red bumps or plaques (wheals) on the skin that appear suddenly -- either as a result of the body's reaction to certain allergens, or for unknown reasons. Hives usually cause itching, but may also burn or sting."
