Today’s blog is about pets in Canada. Please click the link, read the article, and watch the video. Thanks!

1.     How do you feel about de-clawing cats? Is it unethical?
2.     Are cats de-clawed in your home country?
3.     Would you de-claw your cat for any reason? Why do you think some people de-claw cats?
4.     Last week, we talked about animal rights. Do you think de-clawing goes against animal rights?
5.     Some dogs have been de-barked. Please think about this and consider the same questions above (1, 2, 3, 4).
6.     What are other things pet owners do to their pets? eg. a strange haircut
7.     Do you think any of these things make pets unhappy? Do you think they care?

It's the December 6th blog post!

Please watch about the first 4 or 5 minutes of this video. You can get to it by clicking the link below. This is a topic that is getting more and more serious, I think.

An Epiemic of Beauty Sickness
Renee Engeln

1) Which do you think is more important, health, or appearance?

2) Would you take medicine to cure an appearance problem (for example, acne or serious pimples) even though it might negatively affect your health?

3) Do you think our culture is too worried about appearance?

4) If someone dies because they were taking a prescribed drug, whose fault is it? The company that makes the drug, the government for allowing the drug to me prescribed, the doctor for prescribing the drug, or the patient for choosing to take the drug?

5) Who puts more pressure on girls to be beautiful? Men or Women?

6) Would you rather be fat or be hit by a truck?

7) In this modern time, do men face the same pressure to look good as women do?
