Pet owners wanting to understand their pets are hiring tarot card readers, pet psychics and animal trainers.
Even if they never find a real solution, people who love their dogs say they can learn to better connect with their pets, or sometimes just have fun trying with the new trends.
Some owners are buying a set of pet tarot cards and a guidebook to help them know how to read the cards.
One owner used the cards to ask her dog why she chewed up her training book and found out that the dog was “insecure with her place in the new home.”
Another owner called on a pet psychic to help her communicate with her 11-year-old lab when he got sick.
She said she was able to learn from his sessions about what he needed and whether or not he wanted to stop the medical treatments.
** There is no real research to show spending on this type of service, but one report claims Americans spent $53 billion on their pets last year, including nearly $4 billion on services not related to food, supplies or health care.
Robert Downey Jr. made a toddler cry because he wasn't the 'real' Iron Man.
18-month-old super fan, Jaxson Denno, was in tears because the actor didn’t wear his character's trademark suit in public.
The boy’s mother said,“He was fine as soon as he talked to him. [He] was so confused because I kept telling him it was 'Iron Man' and he knew it wasn't., not 'Iron Man' in the suit.”
Downey ran into them in the neighborhood while out for a walk, and looked visibly worried about upsetting the boy.
Downey then spent 10 minutes with the child, and did his best to get a smile out of the toddler even though his people kept telling him he had to leave and was late for shooting.
Mom added, “He was amazing. You could tell he was a dad with a young son.”

1. Almost naked self portraits may sound enticing - but not when they’re coming from your relatives and some people who just need to keep their shirts on.
2. Food pictures - we get it, you had dinner. You’ll probably have it again tomorrow.
3. The most interesting man in the world meme might have been funny for a day, but at this point if we wanted his face clogging up our news feed we would be friends with him instead of you.
4. Pictures of purchases are mainly just to brag and we get quite enough of that on Facebook without you adding your iPad popping out of its case.
5. Anti-Obama pictures from the “Like if you REALLY love America” fan page.
6. There is such a thing as Facebook hoaxes. Be smart enough to learn how to avoid them.

8. If you ask me for a million likes I’ll defriend you for a million days.
9. Oh my gosh did you see the finale of my favorite show!? I probably didn’t. And if I did or want to and haven’t seen it yet, you’re ruining it for me.
10. Motivational words pictures are just plain cheesy.
