It's Adopt-a-Shelter Dog Month and we'll be introducing you to extraordinary canines who need homes throughout October. Today, meet Rascal and Jersey, two pups who prove that two is definitely better than one.
The Australian shepherd mixes were surrendered together to the Wisconsin Humane Society in Milwaukee because their former owner couldn't find a place that would allow them both. The shelter can't bear to split these two, who are the best of friends, so they are hoping to place them in a loving home where they can spend forever together.
"Both adore attention and their personalities perfectly complement one another," says Angela Speed, vice president of communications for the shelter. "Rascal is adventurous and outgoing, while Jersey is sweet, submissive and exceedingly affectionate. When offered treats, Rascal executes his tricks with precision and focus, while Jersey drops to the ground and attempts to become the cutest sweetheart she can imagine – and she always succeeds!"

Patty Hanson and Blosom the cow smiled for their official Guinness World Records photo shoot on Monday.
Hanson received an email in mid-August saying Blosom had been named the world's tallest cow. She sought the record after veterinarians and the cow's foot trimmer constantly noted the 2,000-lb. animal's large size, Hanson said.
It's that time of year again. You know, when people use Halloween as a blanket excuse to scare the, uh, bamboo out of everyone.
