Missing your pup while you’re at work? Never fear! The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette cures your puppy blues with its Puppy Cam.
Golden Retriever Xante (prounounced Zan-tee) spends the early afternoon hours in the newspaper’s office. But he’s not alone. He’s joined by the thousands of people who watch his puppy antics Monday through Friday via a live streaming web cam.
Xante, born last December, is not just a Web TV star; he’s also a potential seeing eye dog. Owner Joan Ardisson (assistant to the Post-Gazette’s editor-in-chief) received Xante from The Seeing Eye Inc., and she will raise him until he is at least a year old. He will then be professionally trained, tested, and paired with a seeing-impaired person.
Until then, though, enjoy watching Xante play, nap, and explore through the magic of the Internet. It will surely help a bad case of the Mondays!
