The play Dog Act is an unconventional play written in a post-apocalyptic setting during which the main characters Zetta and Dog are on an adventure to see "China," a famous region in the world at the time of the play. Liz Duffy Adams, the playwright, wrote the play and relayed her blueprints, the script, to directors Mandy Fox and Joe Kopyt, who worked with designers to create and present a world of their own imagination based on Adams ' script. The unique interpretation included eccentric costumes for each character, bold yet subtle implications toward sexuality and gender, as well the moving storylines executed well by the actors.
After attempting to save her dog from two angry pitbulls, the 53-year old woman had suffered severe injuries. The incident occurred at 7:30 am. The police later cornered the dogs. They shot and killed one dog after it started to charge at them, and they took the other pitbull to an animal control center in Milwaukee. Police took it there to test it for rabies and to quarantine it. However, it is possible that these dogs did not have rabies. Pit bulls were originally bred as fighting dogs, which is why they call them pit bulls. While a properly trained dog gets along great with humans, it is not in their genetics to get along with other dogs.
I wake up every morning only to see burn holes in my bed. As I slide out of bed, I wobble towards the staircase to make some breakfast. I’ll admit it, I am a waste of my freedom. I have no job, no fun memories, no family, no purpose, and most of all, no friends. Someone needs to come into my life to lift me up from my nicotine-ridden lifestyle.
Upon reading No, I Don’t Want to Pet Your Dog, written by Farhad Majoo, you are immediately met with someone who seems to have a deathly disliking for dogs. He begins with an anecdote of a Doberman making an unwelcome appearance at his personal gym. He begins to discuss how dogs have become an unquestionable member of our human society. They make uninvited appearances in inappropriate places, and their owners seem to have no remorse or understanding that some people do not like dogs. Majoo seems to feel that his hatred for dogs is known, when it has never been expressed, and that people should alter their lifestyles to suit his personal wants and desires.
He stood out among the forlorn pit bulls and abandoned mutts stuck in cages at the animal shelter in Upper Manhattan: an underfed, 50-pound mix of Labrador and Great Dane with a messy, jet-black coat.
The I Love Lucy Television Series took a risk by introducing a multiracial family as the main characters of the show; however the comedy hit became one of the most successful of the early 1950’s. Husband, Ricky Ricardo was introduced as your typical hot headed Cuban, who worked a medium to lower class job as an entertainer/musician at a local nightclub. There have been times when the program deliberately joked or pointed out Ricky’s “Latin tongue” and dialect when he interpreted “Bus” meaning “Boss” during the “Ricky Asks for a Raise” episode. I feel the I Love Lucy television series helped shed light on the Latin Community, sending a message that it is socially acceptable for a multiracial couple to coexist with society within that era, therefore desensitizing its viewers.
Could a dog “adopt” a kitten? Can a giraffe be friends with a lion? Animals can surprise us in many ways. Some are when a dog and a hedgehog start playing around with each other, other are when a dog grabs a frisbee in mid-flight, and others are when your animal does something awesome. But for some weird reason dogs or any other animal can have this instinct to take in other animals as their own. This is what happen to this family pet. Here is the story of Bella, the German shepherd.

The room was hot with body heat and outside air seeping in through the thin walls. The smell of sweat hovered over everyone as they lay on the floor. If someone coughed or snored everybody could hear it, the next room too. Families huddled together to sleep, inches from the strangers next to them.
When someone mentions skeletons in a closet, they may not necessarily be talking about a collection of bones. Instead, they may be referring to secretive skeletons from their past hidden deep in the dark closets of their mind, and they go all out to keep them concealed. If divulged they could cause pain and humiliation by embarrassing or destroying an otherwise unblemished reputation, even ruining lives forever. When we say, "I have skeletons in my closet" that’s our way of saying, "I’m not talking to you about my past escapades, it might change your opinion of me,” or simply "I’ll protect my secrets and they can never hurt me.”
