Oh Dog! Happy Sunday everybody! Do I have some great news for you this week! Actually, I have TWO great news stories to share!
First up, we head to China, where The Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress has approved an interpretation of China’s Criminal Law making it now illegal to eat the meat of animals that China considers “rare wild animals”.
It seems that as more people in the country accumulate wealth, they have been paying big money to eat exotic game, which has in turn encouraged poaching of these animals, including Giant Pandas and Asian Black Bears.
So now if you’re caught eating them, you’re going to jail, for maybe 10 years or more! Oh, and if you knowingly buy an illegally killed wild animal, you’re going to jail for 3 years in China.
WAY TO GO CHINA!!!!!
Next we head to King’s College, London, where researchers, along with a team from San Francisco Veteran Affairs Medical Center, have grown a human epidermis in a laboratory.
This is HUGE, as it could end the use of animals for testing cosmetics and medications for use on the skin. Can you imagine? Soon we might be able to buy any beauty product on the market and know that it wasn’t tested on animals!
Don’t you love it when there’s good news to share?

Well done China now would the rest of Asia please follow! We read about the lab-grown skin – it sounds so very encouraging.
Yes! I sure hope it includes shark fins!
I know! I’m so excited about the strides being made in China!
Avon products do not test on animals. Years ago, I stopped buying any cosmetic that did animal testing. But like you said, one day, we won’t have to worry and just buy what we want because….no products will be animal tested.
Avon DID test on animals in. China.
Did is the operative word.
Do you know if they aren’t now? They aren’t saying.
I know I won’t buy their products.
Absolutely great news!!!!!!! 🙂
China is making the US look bad with all these positive changes! Meanwhile we’re going backward.
Grrreat news indeed !
Happy Easy SUNday 🙂
Happy Sunday to you Charlie Rascal!
Luv heawin’ good news. Hav a Pawsum day!! 😀
Luv and Hugs and Kitty Kisses ♥♥♥
Wow! Those Giant Pandas are adorable! Both news are wonderfun and so impressive! Especially the 2nd one that we, animals won’t be used for testing of human ccosmetics!!!! Bravo, King’s College, London!!! *pawapplause* 🙂
Rumpy I wish the invention of London will help all animals. Animal tests are so cruelty and I’m sad what animals have to bear only for a lipstick or a shower gel. Have a good sunday!
I am too Easy. I’m also sad that people seem to see that as acceptable, even when it’s possible to make products without doing such testing.
Great news about China! Now we just need to stop them eating dogs.
It will come. But I think it’s high time we give them credit for the efforts they’re making. I mean, really, they’re going forward while here in the US we seem to be going backward.
Great news about what is hopefully the end of animal testing!! I always try to be responsible and purchase items labelled as vegan or not tested on animals but it’s very difficult to find those. With these new options it will become easier and companies will have no excuse for animal testing.
Thanks for making us smiley this Sunday
Yes. Love this kind of news. Thanks
Good news for sure!!! 🙂
I love good news!
Now if the rest of the states/countries etc…would follow suit, it would be great!
Thanks for sharing!

Good news a local dog was rescued from a handicapped chair after getting his paw trapped. He was very good for the firefighters who took an hour to get is paw out.
Oh Dog! That IS good news!
I hope someday they can grow human compassion in a lab. I know some people who could use a little.
I know a goodly portion of an entire country that could use a dose!
A relief to read good news. More more more more, we need more.
These good news stories are awesome! Yay!
Love and licks,
