After some research, I have decided that a Norwich terrier is the perfect dog for me. They’re cute, loyal, loving, hardly shed at all, are easily trained, live long and have minimal health problems, don’t bark a lot, and love to exercise and play.

A rodent-eating snake and a hamster have developed an unusual bond at a zoo in Tokyo, Japan. Their relationship began when zookeepers presented the hamster to the snake as a meal.
