Forget About Bird Flu - Dog Flu is the Real Problem

Bird Flu - it's a pandemic, sweeping the world. People everywhere are dying. Bodies are piling up. There's nobody to bury them. Bottled water and toilet paper are in short supply.

Oh wait, that's the stuff of fantasy. You can follow the hysteria at the birdflubreakingnews website.

Or, you can come back to reality. Closer to home, the real problem isn't the birds. It's dogs. With flu. According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, One of America's Great Newspapers, an outbreak of highly contagious canine influenza has swept through the shelter of the Animal Rescue League of Western Pennsylvania, resulting in the deaths of four dogs. Another 23 dogs are sick and are undergoing treatment while shelter employees and volunteers work to keep the virus from spreading.

But there's no dogflubreakingnews website. Which is a bad thing because even Snopes confirms that dog flu is for real and has been spreading through the canine population of the U.S.

Finally, a good reason to stock up on bottled water and toilet paper.
