Where OAPs are old aged pets
A Japanese pet company is opening a nursing home for elderly dogs, providing round-the-clock veterinary care, a specialist gym and a swimming pool.
Aeonpet Co. a subsidiary of the Aeon supermarket chain, has opened the first dog retirement home at a shopping mall east of Tokyo, providing an initial intake of 20 dogs with full-time care. “We decided to open the nursing facility because so many dog owners have requested something like this,” Nanako Oiishi, a spokeswoman for the company, told The Telegraph. “Many Japanese people have pets now, but of course they get old and it can be difficult to care for them.”
As well as a vet on call, the nursing home has a grooming room and owners are able to stay with their animals as they live out their days in luxury.
Swine swims into limelight
A farmer’s strange idea to give his pigs something to do to alleviate boredom by teaching them to dive has become one of the latest fads in China. Pig farmer Huang Demin, 32, of Ningxiang county, Hunan province, discovered that giving the pigs a fun reason to exercise made them happier – and tastier. And now, according to a report on the orangenews website, his idea for improving the lives of his pigs has been turned into visitor attractions at several places around China. The larger pigs dive from heights of up to five metres, while the smaller animals jump from a one or three-metre board. And visitors can’t seem to get enough of the daily spectacle on the purpose-built pig diving boards. The farmer says that he can sell the meat from his diving happy pigs for three times the price of a normal pig.
