Children are reportedly interested in raising money to get cart for pooch.Sheila Choi receives hundreds of calls and emails about abandoned animals every day. But the call that Choi, the CEO of Fuzzy Rescue, an animal rescue organization in Los Angeles, was not expecting to receive was the one she got recently from celebrity news Web site TMZ. The outlet called Choi to inform her that Michael Jackson’s children, Prince and Paris Jackson, had fallen in love with one of Fuzzy Rescue’s animals: a 6-month-old pup named Scooby-Roo.

Scooby-Roo is missing his two front legs, a condition he was likely born with. Since being found covered in wounds under a car, Scooby-Roo has been nursed back to health by Choi and her team, who are also raising funds to get him a cart and therapy treatment to improve his mobility.

Choi says that Jackson’s children Prince and Paris, reportedly had been so taken with Scooby-Roo that they had memorized Fuzzy Rescue’s bio of the dog, and that they were interested in raising the $2,000 necessary to get Scooby-Roo his first cart. Choi has not yet had direct contact with the children or representatives of the Jackson family, but has had an outpouring of collateral support from fans of the Jacksons.

And one dolphin is seen flipping the jellyfish 6ft in the air.Scientists suggested their game could go some way to explaining why dolphins in captivity are so skilful with balls in sealife parks around the world.Jonathan Easter, 23, who saw the dolphins at play, said: “One thing is for sure, they were having fun.”There were floating blobs of jelly and the dolphins were flipping them about.”They swim under the jellyfish, then at the right moment flick their tail up to give it a good ‘kick’.
