Dogs aren't the only animals that vie for best in show. Hundreds of breeds of pigeons compete in their own version of the Westminster show, strutting on long, thick legs or fluttering curly, lacy feathers in their bid to be best bird.

These pigeons aren't the nuisance flocks that swarm food scraps at outdoor restaurants. They are genetically rich birds, including variations bred to look like turkeys or sound like trumpets, that drew thousands of enthusiasts - including ex-boxer and pigeon lover Mike Tyson - to the National Pigeon Association's 93rd annual Grand National Pigeon Show.

Showing pigeons is one of the older and larger hobbies in the world.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — People aren't the only ones suffering from a seemingly endless winter of bone-rattling cold, record-busting snow and ice-slick sidewalks. Pooches' paws feel the pain, too.

While millions of residents from the Rocky Mountains to the East Coast shovel snow deep into the season and hunker down awaiting relief, their dogs are either missing out on walks or left vulnerable to injury with each salt-coated step.

Rock salt and shards of ice can cut feet or get wedged between toes, de-icing chemicals can burn paw pads and frostbite can happen. That's led to a late-season boost in sales of doggy boots, which can be an annoyance for canines but allow owners to protect pets that are like family.

A 6-month-old kitten that recently was diagnosed with rabies had been checked by a veterinarian and received rabies shots a couple of weeks before showing symptoms of the deadly virus, its owner said Tuesday.

But the checkup came too late.

The kitten, named Jello, was a stray found in early February that became the first rabid domestic cat to test positive for the virus in El Paso County since 1966. Twenty people must take a series of preventative shots after being exposed to the virus, which is deadly once symptoms arise.

Justine Jovel, 23, said she got the cat from a person on Craigslist, who had found the kitten near Union Boulevard and Woodmen Road about 12 hours earlier.

Powers Pet Emergency and Specialty (PPERS) is stepping up its pet-care game with the addition of a state-of-the-art veterinary MRI, making it one of only six locations that offer MRI capabilities onsite in Colorado.

An MRI – magnetic resonance imaging – scan is a detailed form of diagnostic imaging that allows a veterinarian to see inside a pet’s body. Unlike an X-ray, the MRI images are more detailed and do not use radiation. MRI scans can help veterinarians catch developing internal health issues in places like the brain and spinal cord.

“We are very excited to offer this to our patients and all of Colorado Springs,” said Dr. Lee Wilwerding, DVM, owner of PPERS, 5886 Tutt Boulevard.

Meet Hulk, the 174-pound American pit bull terrier whose enormous frame has turned him into an Internet sensation.

Hulk’s owners, Marlon and Lisa Grennan, run Dark Dynasty K9’s, a breeding kennel on a 150-acre New Hampshire ranch that trains protection dogs. “These dogs are absolutely fearless because they are trained to be 100 percent fearless,” says Marlon in a video with Barcroft Media.

DDK9’s pit bulls can sell for anywhere from $1,500 to $30,000. And the family business boasts an international clientele that includes law enforcement agencies, celebrities and “regular” families. But there’s no doubt that Hulk is the Grennan family’s prized possession.

Twenty people must undergo a series of preventative shots after a kitten tested positive for rabies in northeast Colorado Springs.

It's the first confirmed case of rabies in a domesticated cat in El Paso County since 1966, according to county public health officials.

A family living near Woodmen Road and Union Boulevard took in the 6-month-old stray kitten in early February, and it started showing symptoms Feb. 22 or 23, said Shannon Rowe, the health department's communicable disease program manager.

Family members took the kitten to a veterinarian Feb. 24, and the vet reported the animal to the health department the next day.

The test came back positive for rabies Friday, the health department said.

SUN CITY, Ariz. — Two quick-footed llamas that dashed in and out of traffic in a Phoenix-area retirement community were captured by authorities Thursday, causing a stir in the streets and on social media.

Television footage showed a large, white llama and a smaller, black llama darting through the streets of Sun City during the lunch hour. Cars and golf carts stopped in their tracks because of the wayward livestock.

The animals galloped along the sidewalk, through manicured yards and along street medians. The streets looked more like a rodeo arena as several people tried to lasso both llamas.

Their televised breakout quickly inspired a Twitter account and several hashtags including #LlamasonTheLoose, #llamadrama
