12 Items to Wear for Shark Week

It's Shark Week — a time for marveling in the majesty and sheer power of one of the world's oldest creatures. Sadly, this adrenaline rush of teeth, TV and good times last only seven days, but that doesn't mean you can't live every week like it's Shark Week. All you need to do is stock up on some toothy gear that…

Dun dun dun! You thought it was safe on land this Shark Week? Wrong! The jaws now have paws, and they are sneaking into your home to cause havoc, and maybe clean up a few crumbs. We're talking about this shark kitty riding a Roomba. This impressive predator takes her time circling her prey - or it could just be the Roomba's course - before striking out in all her fierce cuteness. Sign us up for this shark attack....

As a resident of Washington DC, this brings Shark Week much closer to home for me. I recently learned that there are documented cases of bull sharks swimming in the Potomac River. The Washington Post reports: "Willy Dean was on the Potomac River in a 22-foot skiff Tuesday morning when he realized there was something both abnormal and enormous in his net.

The Paws of Jaws

Whether eating everything in sight or lurking around the corners of the house and attacking us (albeit with kisses), it seems as though our dogs often take on the attributes of these fierce fish.

It's Shark Week. In fact, it's the 25th anniversary of Shark Week. A week where the world watches these majestic killers of the deep swim and circle and eat fish and...yawn. Really? Sharks? Oooh, I'm sooo scared. If I go out of my way to charter a boat, go miles off shore, and chum the water to attract a shark, I could be eaten alive by this monstrous fish if I also happen to climb over the railing leaving the complete and utter safety of the boat.
