It’s hard not to be jealous of Scott Eastwood‘s dog, Fred. After all, the adorable 3-year-old white Lab gets to spend lots of intimate time with the actor, showering him with affection and generally enjoying the perks of being a sexy man’s best friend. “Having a dog is great because no matter what is going on in your life, when you get home, that dog doesn’t care. He loves you unconditionally,” Eastwood, 31, tells PEOPLE in the Sexiest Man Alive issue.
It’s every pet owner’s worst nightmare: a trusted caretaker and businessperson mistreating the furry love of your life. A dog grooming salon owner in Venice, Florida, has been accused of just such a crime. According to Florida’s FOX 4 News, Phyllis Lucca, who owns Happy Puppy Pet Spa, was caught on camera allegedly shaking and choking a pup, a scene that was filmed by then-employee Briana Brady. Brady, who no longer works at the salon, posted the footage to Facebook on Nov. 10.
It’s one small paw-step for cats, and a giant leap for felines in Denver, Colorado. The Denver Post reports that a bill proposing to ban the declawing of cats was passed unanimously by the Denver City Council on Monday. Declawing, known as “onychectomy” to veterinarians, is a surgical procedure that removes a cat’s claws. The surgery consists of removing all or the majority of the last bone of each of the ten toes in a cat’s front paws.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
