Batman and Ted

I've been enjoying the dog days of August with lots of trail time with my pups, and so missed a few newspapers and some dog news including the tale of Batman. But I figure with the tribute to Edward Kennedy planned for the Democratic Convention tonight, I could link to this story about a Minneapolis dog who not only has the same kind of brain cancer as the senior senator but whose cutting-edge treatment may hold some keys to an effective treatment in people. Here's hoping for Batman's speedy recovery and Kennedy's health--and breakthroughs for humans and canines alike.

Speaking of pets and brains, I also read about an artificial cat brain that was in development by the Pentagon: http://blog.wired.com/defense/2008/08/darpa-fake-brai.html

Interesting stuff. It seems out there, but it too could have some impact on human health.
