Hi and welcome to Wednesday Pet Roundup! I came across this photo and it made me smile–my yellow lab Hudson, when he was but a pup. Hudson went over the Rainbow Bridge 5 years ago.

* Today, I’m celebrating some extremes in the pet world. Here is Einstein, the world’s smallest pony less than 20 inches tall!

* And this, from Life with Dogs, the 128 lbs overweight dog, a sadly obese collie-mix.

* And finally, a lovesick goose. This Assignment America video is at first kind of odd, but then I’m struck by how sweet it is. I especially am touched by the part at the end, where Maria tries to fly off chasing her best friend as he drives off on his scooter.

* I was unable to connect with the first place winner of the DNA Kit, so the kit now goes to the second place winner: Vicky! Please send me your mailing information. Congratulations!
