Small Dog and Really Really Small Frogs

Lucy weighs 2 and 1/2 pounds

Lucy, a tiny Yorkshire Terrier from New Jersey, was crowned by the folks at Guinness World Records as the world's smallest working dog. Yes, Lucy has a job!

She is a therapy dog working with the Leashes of Love program and every week she's "visiting hospitals, nursing homes, and rehabilitation centers. She also works with children with disabilities, and troubled youth."

This little guy is one of the new frogs discovered recently to be one of the "smallest vertebrates on Earth". Is it any wonder they were never seen before? Look how tiny! You could fit 5 of them on that one dime.
