    Getty Tom Brady had a little bit of fun at the expense of the Colts. Tom Brady just can’t stop making life miserable for the Indianapolis Colts. Although Brady is now a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, he’s still creating new memories — at the expense of the Colts. The Buccaneers’ 10-point comeback victory over Indianapolis in Week 12 is the latest example of Brady getting the better end of the Colts. Following the Buccaneers’ 38-31 win over the Colts, the 44-year-old quarterback couldn’t help but have some fun at the expense of his old rival team. Brady took a little bit of a playful jab against the Colts on the latest episode of the “Let’s Go!” podcast with Jim Gray on Monday, November 29. “Always fun talking to you [Jim Gray] on a Monday after winning,” Brady said. “Especially fun after we beat the Colts, which we’ve done a pretty good job of that lately. I think I’ve beat the Colts the last nine times I’ve played ’em, so … it was great to win in...
    Buchecha reveals if he’s really retired from BJJ ahead of ONE: Winter Warriors. Brazilian Jiu-jitsu legend Marcus “Buchecha” Almeida admits his motivation to compete in BJJ has begun to fade as he has found a new challenge in his life … MMA Almeida, an IBJJF Hall of Famer has spent virtually every year since his grappling debut in 2011 competing with and defeating some of the sport’s most accomplished grapplers and managed to notch up multiple world titles in the process. But it seems that ahead of his sophomore MMA appearance, Almeida might be finally ready to hang up the idea of competing in BJJ again. “I never thought that I would retire [from BJJ], but I don’t carry the same motivation, I have fought everybody and do not have nothing left [to prove], all of my focus is on MMA,” he told FanSided’s Amy Kaplan. “I didn’t compete since 2019, I missed the adrenaline you get with competing, and it did not make sense to wait for BJJ tournaments to return for me to feel that same feeling,” Almeida...

    CNN’s Chris Cuomo weighed in on the allegations of sexual assault and harassment against his brother on Tuesday, asserting that he was forced to resign as New York’s governor, in part, because “the media never really liked him.” “The game has rules,” Cuomo said in a segment of program on SiriusXM program, responding to a caller who opined on the matter. “And one of the general principles is you can fight against the other party, and you can fight against the media, but only if you have your party. Andrew had his party enforcing a rule against him that if you have accusations, you have problems, and you don’t really get to really vet the accusations, and you don’t get to go against your accusers.” Cuomo’s elder brother, Andrew Cuomo was forced to vacate his position as governor in August after facing a slew of accusations that he harassed staffers in his office. He was charged with a misdemeanor in October on an allegation that he groped one of those staffers, and is scheduled to appear in court over the matter in...
    (CNN) — As soon as South Africa announced the spread of a new and troubling variant last week, scientists went to work. By the time the World Health Organization had named the new lineage Omicron, multiple teams of researchers had already duplicated the work of the laboratories in Durban and elsewhere, and mapped out the genetic changes that made Omicron the new bad actor of the coronavirus family.

    A WOMAN has revealed you are forgetting to clean yet another thing in your home: the dishwasher. Yes, you still need to clean something that washes your dishes. 4You need to clean the filter inside your dishwasher every weekCredit: TikTok 4People tend to neglect the filter in their dishwasherCredit: TikTok A Florida mommy blogger – who goes by the name of Jettset Farmhouse on social media – revealed in a video that, if you are the proud owner of a dishwasher, you need to clean the filter after every load or at least every week. All you need to do is remove the bottom rack and pop out the filter that's visible under the fan and clean it with warm, soapy water. She also added that every two months, you need to actually clean the entirety of the dishwasher. "Begin by putting a dishwasher-safe bowl on the top shelf and running it on the hottest cycle it can," the mom of six said.

    ABC Is Michelle Young's 'Bachelorette' winner giving everything away? Michelle Young is heading into Hometown Dates on the November 30, 2021, episode of “The Bachelorette,” but her season has been spoiled for weeks, thanks to Reality Steve. If you’ve been able to avoid spoilers this season, but you’re following Michelle’s top four guys — Rodney Mathews, Nayte Olukoya, Joe Coleman, and Brandon Jones — on social media, you may have been able to piece some things together. One of those guys has been very active on social, and may be giving a bit too much away with his activity. It’s no secret that social media and the way that it has evolved has really changed the way that people watch reality television. Over the past few seasons of “The Bachelor” franchise shows, some contestants have actually spoiled their own seasons without even realizing it. This couldn’t have been more evident when fans noticed that “Bachelor” Matt James was listening to Rachael Kirkconnell’s playlist on Spotify weeks before his season finished airing. So, what’s happening during Michelle’s season that’s...

    MANCHESTER UNITED nearly sealed a deal for Jack Grealish, 12 months before his historic £100million transfer to Manchester City. The transfer made him the most expensive Premier League signing of all time, but things could have been very different for the England star. 1Grealish nearly signed for Man Utd before joining cross-town rivals Man CityCredit: Getty Grealish, 26, has revealed that OIe Gunnar Solskjaer was keen to sign him in the summer of 2020. A move never materialised, but he signed a new deal at Aston Villa with a £100m release clause off the back of Manchester United's interest. Grealish told the Telegraph: "I was really close to going, but nothing happened in the end. "We played United in a pre-season game on Saturday and I wasn’t supposed to play in a cup game at Burton.

    THESE shocking images give an idea of what millions of people with diabetes have struggled with. Wavy vision, blurred vision, floaters, colour loss and total vision loss are all symptoms of diabetes. 5Diabetics' vision can get wavy, as illustrated using a very fragile-looking Tower BridgeCredit: Lenstore The condition happens when a person cannot produce enough insulin to control blood sugar levels, or their insulin does not work efficiently. Most people know that diabetes, both types 1 and 2, is when a person has to constantly manage their blood sugar levels. But did you know one of the key complications of the disease is vision problems, among many others? It happens because too much sugar in your blood over time can lead to the blockage of the tiny blood vessels that nourish the retina. The retina is a layer of tissue in the back of the eye that senses light and sends images to the brain. It is vital for being able to correctly see what’s in front of you. Damage to the retina cuts off the blood supply and, as...
    THE Queen has stopped having her daily dry martini, it has been reported. Last month, it was said Her Majesty, 95, was cutting down on her alcohol, and now royal sommelier Demetri Walters has revealed the reason. Getty 2 The Queen is said to have given up her daily dry martinis Speaking to the Daily Mail, the wine professional said: “It’s bad for her joints, and she can’t drink too much when she’s doing all these royal engagements — it’s not a job you can drink in.” However, the monarch hasn’t given up booze entirely, and still enjoys a glass of wine with her meal.  Demetri added that he has a tough job, as the Queen is very selective about the vintage of the bottle. The sommelier continued: “I choose for the Queen, but she’s quite exacting, as she doesn’t drink much wine at the moment.” ????

    Former President Trump's Assistant Health Secretary, Brett Giroir, has criticized the country's Chief Medical Advisor, Dr. Anthony Fauci, saying his 'ego' has expanded since he served under the previous administration and is now acting 'political'. Speaking on Fox News on Monday, Admiral Giroir said that he had witnessed a significant change in Fauci's behavior in the ten months since he worked with the nation's top doctor. 'I think the ego is really expanding beyond what I saw,' Giroir began.  'Look, Tony was a good colleague when I worked with him but he's become much more politician and it is a fact that the NIH his institute funded gain of function research.

    As far as holy grails in medicine are concerned, you don’t get one much more significant than a cure for dementia. It’s the condition many of us fear most, as the disease slowly but inexorably obliterates the mind. We’ve been waiting for a breakthrough treatment for decades, yet despite billions spent on drug development and research by governments and companies worldwide, the majority of candidates have fallen by the wayside. Some experimental medicines have even had the opposite of the intended effect, actually worsening brain function. And the only drugs currently available simply tackle specific symptoms of mild to moderate dementia — there is nothing that can slow down the disease or prevent it. So, understandably, there was huge excitement and hopeful headlines recently after the first new medicine for Alzheimer’s (the most common type of dementia) in two decades was approved by the U.S. regulator, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). As far as holy grails in medicine are concerned, you don’t get one much more significant than a cure for dementia The drug, aducanumab (brand name, Aduhelm), works...
    Prince Charles is the member of the royal family who raised questions about the likely color of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s babies’ skin, the author of a new book about the royals which addresses controversy has exclusively told The Daily Beast. Christopher Andersen, who has been covering the royal family for 50 years, first at Time magazine and then as a senior editor running People magazine’s royals coverage in the ’70’s and 80’s also exclusively told The Daily Beast that relations between the royals are now so poor that William “isn’t returning Harry’s calls” and Charles and Harry “haven’t spoken since Prince Philip's funeral.” Andersen told The Daily Beast: “My sources are rock-solid and they helped me unravel the mystery of which royal Harry and Meghan were talking about when they said a member of the family had brought up the issue of how light or dark their children might turn out to be and that there were concerns about what that would mean for the monarchy. “I was able to trace the origins of the controversy back...
    Dr. Anthony Fauci said Sunday that he felt it was “dangerous” to criticize him, arguing that those who did so threatened to “damage science.” He made the comment in an interview with Face the Nation host Margaret Brennan, who asked him about his critics, including Sens. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Rand Paul (R-KY). “It seems another layer of danger to play politics around matters of life and death,” Brennan said. “Exactly,” replied Fauci, who heads the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. “To me, that’s unbelievably bad, because all I want to do is save people’s lives. And anybody who’s looking at this carefully realizes that there’s a distinct anti-science flavor to this. So if they get up and criticize science, nobody’s going to know what they’re talking about. But if they get up and aim their bullets at Tony Fauci, well, people can recognize there’s a person there.” “So it’s easy to criticize,” he added. “But they’re really criticizing science, because I represent science. That’s dangerous. To me, that’s more dangerous than the slings and the arrows that get thrown...

    EVER noticed that there is a tiny pocket inside women’s knickers and wondered what it is for? It turns out that the secret compartment is not for storing small items, but is actually for hygiene purposes. 5Ever noticed the secret 'pouch' inside knickers? No, it is not for storing itemsCredit: Fashion101 The “pocket” is in fact the gusset of her underwear. Gussets are often made with moisture-wicking breathable fabric such as cotton which helps to keep the genitals dry and ventilated. They also are highly absorbent and prevent friction as well as reducing the risk of infection. Synthetic materials don’t provide protection against rubbing, sweat and bacteria, so the cotton insert can be key. Last year, Stacey Solomon was left baffled over the “secret noonie pockets” she discovered in all of her underwear. Taking to her Instagram story, the mum-of-three posted a video of her swimming costume, pointing out the small insert in the lining of her pants. Speaking in the video, she asked: “I have been putting away my washing and I just have to know this. “I am...

    Food editor Leah Holzel coaches people who have lost their sense of smell due to COVID-19. From the earliest days of the global pandemic, one of the most common symptoms of a COVID-19 infection has also been on of the oddest: a loss of the sense of smell, more technically known as olfactory dysfunction. That symptom has often been treated as something of a minor side effect of the illness, and when the serious effects can include death, it is easy to overlook almost anything else. The loss of a sense of smell or taste has also been regarded as a temporary effect. However, as a report from the Journal of the American Medical Association reports, that may not be the case. Loss of smell and taste turns out to be more persistent than anyone really expected. The number of people suffering from chronic olfactory dysfunction lasting at least six months may already be over 1 million. And as the pandemic drags on, that number is only increasing. As the number of noseless Americans increases, the results can be surprisingly widely reaching. And dangerous. And disheartening. And...
    The two messenger-RNA vaccines for COVID-19 are highly effective. At least early on. But owing to the spread of new and more virulent variants of the SARS-CoV-2 pathogen, the natural tendency of some vaccinations to wane over time and the rushed way countries have administered vaccine doses, the mRNA jabs from Pfizer and Moderna have been getting noticeably less effective lately. Now there’s a consensus forming among experts that the initial two doses of mRNA aren’t enough on their own. A booster shot isn’t just a good idea for a select few with weak immune systems or jobs that expose them to unvaccinated people. Boosters should be standard for everyone.
    Ole Miss football coach Lane Kiffin fanned the flames of the school’s rivalry with Mississippi State on Thanksgiving after the Rebels won the Egg Bowl 31-21.

    WATCHING your child in their school Nativity is one of the first most adorable - and proud - moments a parent can experience. Whether they're wearing a tea towel and taking on the challenging shepherd role, or carrying a gold painted box as a wise man delivering gifts, in your eyes of course your child is the star of the show. 4From the wise men to the inn keeper, there are plenty of roles your child may play - but what does their character say about them?Credit: Alamy But have you ever thought about why they've been given the role they have?

    With a busy job and a three-year-old daughter who seems to get through endless piles of clean clothes, reaching the bottom of the laundry basket is a never-ending struggle. So when I heard about the latest green campaign, which aims to persuade us all to wash our clothes less, I was prepared to be convinced. Washing too often causes wear and tear that shortens the lifespan of your wardrobe, while 40 per cent of what we pop in the wash isn’t dirty and could be worn again, according to research by Unilever. And putting less in the laundry can help to keep the planet clean. Skipping one wash a week could reduce your water usage by more than 2,600 litres a year, as well as keep microplastics out of our water supply. Still, surely we would all feel a little less than fresh wearing yesterday’s outfits? That is where ‘laundry mists’ come in. India Sturgis puts seven 'laundry mists' that eliminate bacteria to the test - including Steamery Fabric Spray (pictured)  These new sprays work like dry shampoo. They don’t only...
    The moment arrived in last Sunday’s 24-17 win over the New York Jets where Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa had a deep-ball opportunity and connected on it for a touchdown. He stepped up to avoid initial pressure after his first read, Mike Gesicki, was covered and found an open Mack Hollins down the sideline. With the ball traveling 53.1 yards in the air, per NFL Next Gen Stats, and Hollins tip-toeing down the sideline after getting pushed by a Jets defender following the catch, it went for a 65-yard touchdown. That marked Tagovailoa’s longest scoring strike of his career and first of longer than 20 yards this season. For Tagovailoa, who is often criticized for a lack of arm strength and also recovering from fractures on his ribs and the middle finger on his throwing hand earlier this season, it had to feel like he got the proverbial monkey off his back. “Yeah, it felt really good,” Tagovailoa said. “We haven’t had much of those last year when I played and then this year too. We haven’t...
    Once again, Aaron Rodgers appears to have misled the public about a COVID-related health issue.  This time the Green Bay Packers quarterback claims he was just joking during Tuesday's interview with SiriusXM's Pat McAfee when he said he was suffering from 'COVID toe,' which is something that has actually plagued people who have contracted the virus, such as Rodgers.  During a video press conference with reporters on Wednesday, the embattled reigning NFL Most Valuable Player explained that he actually has a fractured toe, and not any lesions that are associated with COVID toe, or pernio, as it is also known.  To prove his point, Rodgers showed his bare foot to the camera before complaining about the misunderstanding.  'I mentioned yesterday that it's worse than turf toe and it must be a bone issue,' he said, as quoted by Pro Football Talk. 'I can't believe I have to come on here and talk about my medical information — but yeah, I have a fractured to. 'I've never had a COVID toe before,' he continued. 'I have no lesions on my feet....

Experts say only handful of space rocks of this size have fallen in the region in the last century. David found it in 2015 with his metal detector while scouring the yellow clay in Maryborough, near Melbourne, which is famous as the site of the Australian gold rush in the nineteenth century. It weighs a whopping 17kg - around 40lbs - and appears metallic with rusty dimples all over. David hoped he would find gold inside, so took it home...
    RAFAEL VAN DER VAART has branded Manchester United skipper Harry Maguire ‘really s***’ on live television. And the Tottenham hero admitted he was staggered the Red Devils coughed up £80million for the England defender. 1Harry Maguire kept the captain's armband against VillarrealCredit: Getty Maguire has been in the firing line for recent performances - including the low-point of being sent-off in the 4-1 defeat by Watford that saw boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sacked. Van der Vaart let rip at the centre-back as he previewed United’s Champions League clash with Villarreal for Dutch TV channel Ziggo Sport. He said: "I talk about Harry Maguire so much, so I try to avoid him. But he is really s**t. I have said this so often. "I can't get away from the fact United have paid €90m for him. That's how much he cost! "Where did they look for him? You'll find players like him at any amateur club in Holland. "I think it is unbelievable. He is no top-class defender - and he demonstrates this every week. FINALE Iman Shumpert breaks down in...
    It turns out you can’t blame turkey for your Thanksgiving nap. Instead, food and sleep experts say holiday drowsiness likely comes from feasting and energy exertion. "Folklore has it that the tryptophan-rich turkey is the reason behind the prevalence of snoozers sprawled out in your living room after the leftovers are tucked away," said Dr. Joan Salge Blake – a nutrition professor at Boston University. HOW TO SAVE MONEY ON THANKSGIVING DINNER "Tryptophan is one of 20 amino acids found in foods and can be converted in your brain to the neurotransmitters, serotonin and melatonin," Blake continued. "Since both of these compounds play an important role in regulating sleep, it seems quite logical that tryptophan has always been fingered as the sleep-inducing culprit behind the Thanksgiving Day nap." "But if you look a little further into the science (or lack of) behind this folklore, you will soon realize that this tryptophan theory just doesn’t make any physiological sense," Blake said. It turns out you can’t blame Turkey for your Thanksgiving nap. Instead, food and sleep experts say holiday drowsiness...
    A leading sports dietitian has shared how she keeps her skin glowing from within - and why fermented foods should be a part of everyone's diet.  Tara Kaff, an accredited nutritionist for X50 Lifestyle, said radiant skin 'starts and ends' with diet and food is just as important as topical treatments.  'Foods get digested and broken down into vitamins, minerals and amino acids that your body can use to build healthy skin,' Tara, the Assistant Dietitian for the South Sydney Rabbitohs, said. 'Older cells are constantly shed and replaced by younger ones and a steady supply of key nutrients is essential to support this rapid growth. Eat the correct balance of foods and you'll feed your skin the vital nutrients it needs to help it stay soft, supple and blemish-free.'

    This article was first published by The Hartmann Report. Expect the gun control debate in America to really get hot over the next 12 months as Beto O'Rourke runs for governor of Texas. O'Rourke said, when running for president in 2019, "Hell yes, we're going to take your AR-15, your AK-47!" And it's entirely time for this debate. America has just a bit more than 4 percent of the world's population, but, with more guns than people in our country, we have more than 40 percent of all the guns in civilian hands in the world. Specifically, as a Swiss-based research group found, there are "approximately 857 million civilian-held firearms in the world's 230 countries and territories" and, as ABC News points out, in America there are "over 393 million firearms in civilian possession" as of 2017. About ten million more have been sold in the US since then: we are the only nation in the world with more guns than people. When asked recently if Beto O'Rourke stands by his position that, at the very least, we should get...
    A 103-year-old woman has captivated the internet with her memories of picking cotton in Georgia and Florida as a teenager — a job which would span 14 hours a day for just 50 cents pay. Madie Scott, who turns 104 on December 8, began 'working in the fields' picking cotton in Georgia when she was 12 before moving to Florida to make more money as a sharecropper at 16. In a now-viral TikTok video, the centenarian — who was born in 1917 — shared her recollections of the grueling job.

    IT'S safe to say everyone's had one bad date. Well, this TikTok woman shared the "worst date she's ever been on" and it puts the rest to shame. 4A woman talked about the worst date she's ever beenCredit: TikTok 4It involved buying 100 tacos from Taco BellCredit: TikTok Elyse Myers uploaded a video where she detailed the story while having some morning. She revealed that she had met a man on a dating app and he had told her: "I like your face, let's go get some food." She said: "I love food, are you my soul mate?" He then allegedly told her to drive to his house so they could drive over together. This was the first red flag for her. Myers continued: "Why didn't we just meet there? I have no idea.

    Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield wants fans to know he doesn’t care if they don’t like him. The Browns struggled mightily on offense during a 13-10 win over Detroit this past weekend, and Mayfield looked far from impressive. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) When asked about fans booing him and the offense, Mayfield responded with, “Those are probably the same fans that won’t be quiet while we’re on offense and trying to operate. So, don’t really care.” Baker, on the fans that booed him in the second half Sunday: “Those are probably the same fans that won’t be quiet while we’re on offense and trying to operate.

    Who needed those snobs, anyway? Another admittedly head-scratching take was Nguyen suggesting that if you tell guests ahead of time they'll be in for a turkey-less Thanksgiving, some of them "may drop off the list, and that's a way to cut costs, too." "I'm not recommending it, I'm just offering it," Nguyen added.Anything else? Fox News said one if its polls last month showed a majority of Americans are concerned about inflation and falling behind on finances. More from the cable network: On a similar note, NBC previously published a piece titled, "Turkey Social Media photos promote harmful obsession with meat" in 2019, urging Americans not to post pictures of their turkey dinners because of how it would "promote violence unnecessarily - including the violent origins of our food." NBC's liberal cable arm MSNBC took a darker turn on the holiday over the weekend, airing a widely panned segment tying Thanksgiving to "genocide" that remains "on the menu."
    Ted Cruz, left, and Mike Braun, right. The Library of Congress has begun the process of striking the dehumanizing terms “aliens” and “illegal aliens” as cataloging subject headings, to be replaced with “noncitizens.” It’s been a change years in the making: The Library of Congress agreed to the changes in 2016, but that was blocked by Congressional Republicans, Literary Hub said. “Before this, Congress members had never had a hand in routine cataloging tasks.” Some of them are still sticking their noses in it, namely Ted Cruz. Because of course. He slams the changes as “politically motivated” and “Orwellian” (the dramatics!) in a letter co-signed by Indiana’s Mike Braun. It’s a bit of a lonely letter: Their names are the only two featured. “Now, after the Biden administration has made the political decision to order U.S. immigration agencies to stop using the term ‘illegal alien,’ the LOC has followed suit and released a report stating that ‘the time has come’ to make the changes that we strenuously objected to five years ago,” Cruz and Braun claimed in their letter. “This decision is nothing but a politically-motivated...

In a playful TikTok video Becky and her stepdaughter can be seen doing a coordinated dance. She uploaded the fun clip with the caption: "This took so many tries!" In the dance video, she explained: "We've both done our share of designated driving for each other!" One person commented: "You look the same ages. The step-mother looks younger."

    The Milwaukee County District attorney’s office admitted Monday they screwed up letting the Waukesha crash suspect out on bond just days earlier and announced an “internal review of the decision,” according to a letter obtained by a local reporter. “The most recent case against Mr. [Darrell] Brooks was appropriately charged,” the office said, noting on Nov. 5 the office charged Brooks with Second Degree Recklessly Endangering Safety, Felony Bail Jumping, Battery, Obstructing an Officer and Disorderly Conduct. “The State made a cash bail request in this case of $1,000, which was set by the court. The defendant posted $1,000 cash bail on November 11, resulting in his release from custody.” “The State’s bail recommendation in this case was inappropriately low in light of the nature of the recent charges and the pending charges against Mr. Brooks,” the letter continued. “The bail recommendation in this case is not consistent with the approach of the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office toward matters involving violent crime, nor was it consistent with the risk assessment of the defendant prior to setting of bail.” BREAKING:...
    At this point, describing Facebook as a cesspool of right-wing hysteria is nothing new. It wouldn’t be hard for many of us to think of a distant relative who posts anti-vaccine conspiracy theories, for example, or is still reposting memes with lies about Hunter Biden or—gasp—Ukraine. Sadly, this doesn’t mean Facebook doesn’t have influence, or that folks aren’t sharing (and reading) material without realizing the far-right sources before them aren’t, well, legitimate. One concerning example? As covered in a deep-dive study from Media Matters for America, when it comes to the content shared about trans issues on Facebook, right-wing pages get way, way more attention. That’s a problem for a lot of reasons. According to a study published this November by Media Matters, the organization dove into posts about trans issues from October 2020 to September 2021. The top “pages” posted about trans issues were all conservative or alt-right. Some examples? Fox News, Franklin Graham, Dan Bongino, Breitbart, and even Ben Shaprio. The Daily Wire got the most Facebook shares when it came to trans issues, coming in at more than...
    By Jacqueline Boyd, The Conversation On the face of it, a recently launched TV channel dedicated to dogs seems, well, barking mad. But our pets often spend long periods of time home alone, and providing some form of enrichment and stimulation can be very beneficial to dogs and their owners alike. During the pandemic, many dogs enjoyed having their owners around more often than normal due to the public health restrictions. But the gradual return to the workplace, along with increasingly busy social calendars, has meant that our dogs are once again spending more time in their own company. Some of our canine friends—particularly those dogs who have only known life with their owners since the pandemic began—are now experiencing some difficulties adapting to this new lifestyle. So, any tool which can provide stimulation and entertainment can be helpful to minimize their distress and keep them happy and healthy. Some dogs relish their time alone. It gives them a chance to grab some valuable resting and relaxation time—indeed, dogs can benefit from up to 16 hours of sleep per day....
