For two days, our tour group had been hearing promises of wildlife sightings in Yellowstone National Park, and so far the closest encounter I'd had with an uncaged animal was an overly friendly squirrel hungrily grabbing scraps of food from tourists on the deck of the Old Faithful Inn.   NEW HEIGHTS - The jagged, snowcapped mountains that comprise the Grand Tetons in northwestern Wyoming will take your breath away the first time you see them. ...

Q: Is it possible for dogs to have cataracts? Our 12-year-old miniature schnauzer does not seem to see as well as she did when she was younger. She used to sit in front of the window and watch the birds and rabbits in our backyard. She does not do this any more. We have also noticed that her eyes look cloudy. We wonder if there is a connection between her cloudy eyes and her lack ... [full story]
