A Chihuahua takes on the Karate Kid

Blind man barred from train

A BLIND man was stranded miles from home after being prevented from boarding a train – because his guide dog "might have fleas".

Mark McClenaghan (pictured above), who was unable to board the sleeper from Aberdeen to Edinburgh with his dog Friday, wants an apology and compensation from rail bosses. He had to catch a later train to Perth on Tuesday evening, and then pay out £95 for a taxi to his home in Dalry. First Scotrail is investigating his complaint. The firm says it has clear guidelines for staff and guide dogs are welcome on all trains.

Norwegian cruise ship rescues shipwrecked dog

The 8-month-old dog spent three months adrift in the Pacific with his owners and a parrot until their 48-foot sailboat ran aground in December on tiny Fanning Island, 1,000 miles south of Hawaii. Snickers and Gulliver had to be left behind as their owners hitched a ride on a cargo vessel. Then in March, the SOS was sent out in a boating journal that the orphaned animals were to be destroyed on Fanning, one of 33 scattered coral atolls that make up the remote island nation of Kiribati.
As word spread, a group of people worked to rescue the Cocker Spaniel and the Macaw
On April 9, Norwegian Cruise Line workers rescued Snickers from Fanning and dropped him off on Oahu island, Hawaii, where he will remain in quarantine until he is flown to Los Angeles.
