Inspiration?: Charles Schulz (1922-2000). The inspiration for Snoopy was the Schulz's insane black and white pup, Spike. The "hunting dog" scoured for pins, tacks and razor blades and was generally uncontrollable. In fact, Spike would often race away anytime a door was cracked open, and it was only his love for going on car rides that brought him back. Any time Spike made an escape, Charles would have to run and start honking his father's car by jacklyn

The Whale… If you read a recent front page story of the San Francisco Chronicle, you would have read about a female humpback whale who had become entangled in a spider web of crab traps and lines. She was weighted down by hundreds of pounds of traps that caused her to struggle to stay afloat. She also had hundreds of yards of line rope wrapped around her body, her tail, her torso, a line tugging in her mouth. A fisherman spotted her just east of the Farallon Islands (outside the Golden Gate) and radioed an environmental group for help. Within a few hours, the rescue team arrived and determined that she was so bad off, the only way to save her was to dive in and untangle her. They worked for hours with curved knives and eventually freed her. When she was free, the divers say she swam in what seemed like joyous circles. She then came back to each and every diver, one at a time, and nudged them, pushed them gently around as she was thanking them. Some said it was the most incredibly beautiful experience of their lives. The guy who cut the rope out of her mouth said her eyes were following him the whole time, and he will never be the same. by Paki Maui

Pictured here in 2009, she was fit with a new leg to keep up with her rapid growth. Her home in the tropical jungle of northern Thailand, near the Cambodian border, is an orphanage for elephants.  The gentle giants are the new symbol of the fight against the banned weapons.
